So I a borrowing a anatomically correct baby from Prairie View this week. My friend Nancy said her name is Betsy. Betsy and I are going to become aces at lighting infants this week.

One secret I've learned taking portraits is to put lil' ones on chairs that are "slightly scary". Lily seems to be screaming..."Too scary grandma!"

Ruby is just the sweetest thing ever.
She's growing so fast....I feel guilty always pointing a camera at her to document stages.

Grandaughters Ruby and Lily had better things on their minds during
our recent photo session. Ruby was busy discovering her hand and Lily just wanted to get down. Both these ages 4 months and 22 months are portrait challenges for good old grandma. I will treasure this photo because I'm usually behind the camera.

Lily and the Lollipop
One more thing...
I am excited to welcome a new futon to my studio. It's black and offers a great height to camera vs. subject. Some of my best shots of Lily are when she was on an elevation of 1.5' from the floor.
The angle of my camera to subject is pleasing.

The futon? Answer: College donation.
Maddie insisted we bring it home. So we did over Christmas break. We both load the futon from her stinky fourplex in River Falls. It was the day of the ice. A four inch coating of ice by the tailgate of my CRV made a precariousness move. Just fit. Our seats were as far up as they go and our faces were pressed to the windshield all the way home. Needless to say we needed a nap upon arriving at the house.

Lilly Lollipop was taken on the futon.

Those two were in the mood for me to get a shot!

What joy they both bring to my life.
