Then, finish the evening off with great eats, […]

I love photographing babies.  Especially when they cooperate and stay asleep :)  This is one of my favorite shots of Archer, Jessica Claire & Jeff Norwood’s newest addition to the family.  I just love the symmetry, the smooth tones, and the mixture of the cold, hard chair with Archer’s warm, soft skin and blanket.
