Nearly two years ago when we had Katie Wynn's newborn pictures taken, the only prop I provided and made sure was used was a wooden dough boy. This dough boy usually sits on my mom's kitchen table, but it originally belonged to her grandmother. That would be Katie Wynn's great, great grandmother. We just knew a picture in it would be perfect, and we were right!
The pictures of KW in the bowl were some of my favorites, so after Thomas was born I tried to recreate them. I am far from a professional photographer so my pics aren't nearly as good, but I think they turned out good enough for comparison. It took both me and my mom shushing Thomas over and over to get him to fall asleep in the dough boy. He just wasn't feeling it that day!
Here is Katie Wynn's picture, taken by April Garrett Photography.
And here is Thomas's, taken by me.
Practically twins, right?!
Here are some close ups. Katie bug is first again.
And now Thomas.
Am I the only one that wants to kiss those sweet little lips??! I can't wait to get these in frames and on the wall.
Speaking of frames - here is one of Katie Wynn we've had in a frame sitting on our dresser. I took it of her in the fall when I also put her in the pumpkin.
Just like the dough boy pictures, I wanted to recreate this picture with Thomas so I could add another frame to our dresser. I laid him in our galvanized tin on two different occasions, but I still struggled to get a picture of him with his eyes open. I guess that summer sun's just too bright for a little guy! This is the best one I got with open eyes.
I think this sleepy one is the picture I'll frame though. He just looks so sweet and innocent, something I may need to remind myself of as he grows to be big and rambunctious. :)
Until the next photoshoot...
