Good Afternoon Phellos! Well, once again I have been BUSY editing a wedding, so I have not put my own pics up here.... BUT, wedding is done :) YES! lol

This is little Brayden. Bean and I photographed him on Saturday - 5 days old! He was wonderful. I already entered this shot, but I wanted to share what I have been up to and see what you all thought. Bean made the cocoon! LOVE it! She made me a pink/orange one too, so now I am looking for a girl baby to photograph :) #1246350

Jeff E Jensen 3/8/2010 10:53:49 AM

Very nice Deb! I love the cocoon and the blacked out background.

The light on his arm seems just a tad on the hot side, but probably not enough to worry about. #8440190

Teresa H. Hunt 3/8/2010 4:17:32 PM

Deb, I love this shot! He looks so snug. I agree with Jeff on the arm.

So is Bean selling the coccon's. I have 2 sisters and a sister-n-law who are pregnant. I know for sure I'll be able to photograph one of my sister's babies. #8440876

Man shows how outta touch I am... never even heard of a cocoon before... (but it is absolutely lovely!!!!)

This is a beautifully peaceful and engaging shot Deb! #8440887

Brayden was a DOLL!! :) It was sooo much fun holding him and posing him!!! :)

Teresa, I will be selling cocoons! I'll send you an email later today! I also made a hammock/pouch that we used with Brayden this was SUPER CUTE!! #8442683

Peter W. Marks 3/9/2010 8:01:01 AM

Well Debbra, if this is a March Action shot, I like it. This is the kind of action I am good at; usually right after lunch! #8442728

great picture, he looks so comfortable. for 5 days old he beautiful not always the case... nice job Debbra #8442807

Debbra Bailey level-deluxe 3/9/2010 9:53:22 AM

Thanks everyone! I see the spot on the arm now that you mention it... not sure why I never notice those before! I know there a few ways to deal with that issue. Anyone have an opinion about which way is the best one?

Here is another shot with Brayden in the pouch Bean made :) We had it tied to a stick that my girls were holding :) #8442927

Debbra Bailey level-deluxe 3/9/2010 10:00:37 AM

Here is the other shot - #8442945

Douglas Pignet level-deluxe 3/9/2010 11:16:16 AM

This is simply lovely...Love everything about it, very nice work. #8443057

Christie R. Bielss level-deluxe 3/9/2010 1:34:40 PM

Adorable shot! He is a cutie and those cocoons look so comfortable. Are you going to make those for adults too?! ;) #8443304

Ellen H. Robertson level-deluxe 3/9/2010 4:51:13 PM

The first shot is adorable, but I LOVE the second in the pouch. #8443699

Teresa H. Hunt level-deluxe 3/9/2010 5:03:21 PM

Ooooo I like the second one a lot!! So cute. #8443720

Debbra Bailey level-deluxe 3/10/2010 7:47:24 AM

Thanks everyone! The cocoon was great, bec. the baby LOVED it! Completely relaxed. He was only 5 days old, so I am sure it felt like the womb to be all smushed up! lol

Christie - GREAT idea! Hmmm - wonder how long it would take her to make an adult one? lol Bean? #8445480

Jeanine M. Bailey level-deluxe 3/10/2010 10:41:02 AM

An adult cocoon...that would ROCK!!! Wonder how long that would take me!!! :):):) #8445724

Kathleen Nealon level-deluxe 3/11/2010 7:51:49 AM

Great images and very comfy cocoon. It will probably surpass the snuggie. #8447949

Dale Hardin level-deluxe 3/11/2010 8:38:54 AM

This is one shot I'm in total agreement with Peter. Beautifully done and an adoring subject. #8448117

Anthony L. Mancuso 3/11/2010 7:02:23 PM

Super cute image sister is pregnant as well and I should be an uncle in a couple months, cant' wait to hold him and then hand him back to go home and get a full nights rest ;-) #8449262

Debbie E. Payne 3/12/2010 4:58:36 PM

Both are great, Debbra but I just love the pouch one.
Squished up is certainly a good way to describe him.

Wouldn't "pouches" for adults be called old fashioned hammocks or skychairs? #8451637

Laurence Saliba level-deluxe 3/13/2010 8:37:44 AM

This is so adorable Debbra!!!! Love it!!! #8452885

Debbra Bailey level-deluxe 3/15/2010 5:04:26 PM

Thanks everyone! Bean, you have a few months until my birthday - get crocheting!

Tony - I am SOOOO with you! After 4 babies, I LOVE photographing them now and then sending them home :) Make sure you get your hands on that baby to get pictures! #8457885

Rosemary Sampson level-deluxe 3/20/2010 6:27:03 PM
