My BFF Erin came to visit over the weekend. She’s a fantastic photographer (she took most of the pictures at my nursery rhyme baby shower too) and started doing it as a part-time job last year when she founded Open Shutter Photography. She was kind enough to bring her whole photo set-up with her and we spent a lot of time playing dress up (or dress down) with my new doll baby.
Erin thinks I am doing her a huge favor by “letting” her use Caroline as a model, while I think she’s doing ME a huge favor by taking beautiful pictures for free and “letting” me post them here.
Here are 5 8 10 some of the shots from Erin’s photo shoot. The rest are over on her portfolio site here. I thought it was unfair to anyone with baby fever to post them ALL at once. I would especially avoid the shots where she’s smiling and laughing unless you’re ready for (more) bebehs. But for the record, Suzanne is a lovely name for any girl children born approximately 9 months from today.
(Yeah, I know it’s annoying to talk about how cute my kid is all the time but I can’t help it. Blame all the hormones that make me feel attached so I don’t leave her to be raised by wolves or gorillas or fairies. IT’S SCIENCE.)
For the record, this will be one of about a ZILLION posts called “Sweet Caroline”. You don’t name your daughter Caroline without a) liking the song b) hearing it in your head practically every time you say her name and c) knowing it makes a good title for a blog post. You have it stuck in your head now too, don’t you?
