Baby Girl Candids

Ellie, my camera, is amazing.  She helps me out, even when I get her settings wrong.  (And Lightroom is a great piece of software.)  :)

Though my back was--and is--still in quite a bit of pain, I managed to carry Ellie around all day Sunday for our church's afternoon event.  The Caroling Choir spent the day singing Christmas carols in downtown Naperville, and having fun back at the S. house.  Oh, yeah, and they ate a lot of pizza, too.

But that's not the point of this post.  The point is, Chris and Liz showed up later in the afternoon with their daughter Kate, about seven weeks old.  Though I had been upstairs lying down, Ellie led the way right to this beautiful baby, and Liz didn't say a word as I took several shots.  Though I didn't get to hold her at all (a good thing, considering the shape my back is in), I got a few great images of this precious gift from heaven.

  2. Wow!! I'm Elizabeth's sister and I must say that these are positively the most adorable pictures that I've ever seen. Thank you!!
