Gracie - 6 months

Photographing newborns is still my favorite, but 6 month olds come in a close second. At the age of 6 months, babies are able to hold themselves up good and are not yet independent enough to completely ignore my camera. At this age, they are easily entertained by their surroundings like the red rug, the grass, their own feet, and the trees blowing from above. I have to work really hard to get their attention (often times acting like a crazy woman - I am sure you ALL would like pictures of that), but when I do get their attention, it is always easy to get some big smiles, and Miss Gracie was no exception. Look at that big beautiful grin...
...and charming little smile. She can be a little flirt at times. :)
I bet her parents will see this next look for years to come...maybe around the preteen years. Well, it sure is sweet now! :)
I could use this antique pram on every shoot and be happy with the outcome. I love it. I can't wait to use it with a newborn.
Oh Gracie - I can't wait to see what expressions you will have for me in the fall leaves.
