Baby Opal! One of my favorite babies in the world, for many reasons. She belongs to one of my best friends, Katie. She is also the first and only baby (other than my own) that I’ve ever experienced watching (and photographing) her being born. So our connection is more than a little bit special … watching someone take their first breath of life does something to you. 🙂 She is now eight months old, smiling, crawling, snuggling with her mama, watching her big brother Silas … and I loved capturing all of these things at her home on a cold January day with some beautiful sunlight. Silas is four years old, and I love seeing the person that he’s becoming too … He has so much personality! Check it out.
