babies

I'm mad for babies in the abstract, not so much in reality. I love them when they go home with someone else, although that period before 10 months or so when they will sleep forever just over my heart is precious and not to be missed.

But there's something about the images here ~ click on "Recent Sessions," then "Baby Jack P's Slide Show" ~ that I find incredibly moving.

Take a look, even if you're not a big fan of children. Maybe it's the combination of the music and the images; whatever it is, it's a work of art (and this is not an advertisement) and irresistible. I've watched it three times now and it never fails to make me teary.

As an incentive, the baby's papa is . . . sweet too.

That was gorgeous. I love the shot with the baby on his mother's shoulder, the one where the father and infant's noses are touching, and the mom and dad's hands supporting the baby. Beautiful stuff.

Lovely. My favorite, also, was the one where both parents' hands are supporting his little body. I adore babies.

I sent this to my sister, the so-good-she-ought-to-be-a-pro, for inspriration. When all (four) of her kids are in school full-time, she'll need to find work, and I've encouraged her to start her own photography business. She's now learning how to do all kinds of things with Photoshop and digital imagery, and I think she'll go for it. Do you know Leslie? Do you know Baby Jack's papa? (I'll confess I was hoping for a shirtless - nothing melts my heart like a hot shirtless guy with a hairy chest and a baby. Am I sick?)

Oh, and my favorite has to the close up of the widdle widdle feet cradled in Mama's hand. Very cool.

hey eric ~ i know leslie only via email; she's hunting some furniture. grew up with her husband. didn't know she was doing photography until she sent a note asking about some props because brad had mentioned we sell antiques.

as far as i know, she hasn't any professional training though she's a computer whiz (or so i understand). guess that helps these days. and i think that's something like our very own master tater, who is a superb photographer but didn't go to school for it.

but her situation is something like your sister's ~ so you might pass that along too.

i do not know baby jack's papa. just liked the look of his face. yeah, shirtless ;-) always nice.

my favorite is when the baby's alone, looking directly at the camera. his shining dark eyes just kill me.

It's a fantastic presentation in every aspect for sure. Almost makes me want another but...no.

Aww, isn't that just precious! Makes me want another one.. OK, not so much, I prefer to be able to hand them back, as opposed to staying up all night with them.

She's an excellent photographer, self taught or not.
