Life goes on

Dear Friends,

Last week was a difficult week for many of us. I just want to thank you for sending me very encouraging notes. Believe me, they were timely and needed badly.

Going forward, I am going to try and be positive. And pray for our leaders and our country.

A few weeks ago, my friend's daughter had another baby. Tammy of Simple southern Happiness This is her link 
and I made an appointment to shoot pictures of this sweet newborn baby.
Here are some results:

 
Dang, it is hard to shoot babies. This cutie pie had just woken up from a 3 hour nap and even though Mama fed her, she just couldn't decide to just stay up or just take a snooze. Hence the half closed eyes.


Remember the grape hat that I made with this photo shoot in mind?



Mother and daughter.


Mother love.

That is all for now, Sweetie Pies!

Peace, love and happiness of the Lord be with you today and always!

XOXO

You know what? I look a lot like that precious baby in my grape hat!!

I had to laugh at the half-closed eyes. It took us a long time to photograph our second born as he always fell asleep during a photo shoot. I adore the photo of the little feet in the mother's hand!!

Best,
Bonnie

You and Tammy did a lovely job! Interesting how you used the black background. Nothing could be sweeter and more precious than a baby! So adorable -- the grape knit cap in the grape box! Both of you ladies are amazing!!

Those were great! I didn't know that you and Tammy worked together. The feet were awesome. How did they find you to do it? sandie

Delightful newborn photos, beautifully done! The last shows how tiny newborns are, so sweet.

Charlotte, you outdid yourself on these photos. I enlarged them, and boy that made a difference. My favorite has to be the tiny little feet. I could almost smell the baby powder as I was looking at these. So glad you are back! I agree, we must continue to pray for each other and the country. No matter what happens in politics, we know whom we serve.

That is beautiful. I don't think there is any more beautiful photo than one with a new mama.

Love the little grape on the grapevine.

Yes it has been a hard week. I'm still sort of shell shocked. Can't believe we have gone so far away from truth as a country.

See there, you captured her so well and her mom, even if the little gal would not go to sleep.
