Thank you, JudyAnn. This was such a special shoot. I normally don't "do" portraiture but this was a special circumstance where the parents. at that time, were having to be very careful of where Connor went so that he would not "catch" anything. Therefore, no studio work. My going over to the house with my daughter not only netted recording his first few weeks but after I left to come home to Colorado, the parents got brave enough to ask a local photographer to come to the house for their Christmas pictures which, I don't think would have occurred to them if I hadn't broken the ice. I can hardly wait to go back and visit in May. He'll be a whole year old by then. #10014260

Connor, nearly five months old, but he'd only been home from the hospital a couple of weeks. He was still on oxygen but doing fine at home. He made it...his twin brother unfortunately, did not. He's being held by his neonatalogist, my daughter. This was the first picture he had in his own home and I was proud to be the one to photograph him, his parents and, yes...my daughter too!
