This a very special precious little one.
He is one of my cousins...a very distant one, but all the same, he is the newest member of our family.
I did this photoshoot back in January at my cousin's house and it was certainly an event.
Both sides of the family came over to participate and jump in a few shots with their beautiful grand baby.
My cousin Vicki was so gracious about letting "move in" with all of my gear and totally take over and rearrange her living room to make it my mini studio for the afternoon. Even though I was armed with many different baby blankets, hats, and props.... what we settled on was something that Vicki already had in her possession and was a very sentimental item.
It was an afghan that her Mother made.
Unfortunately, Aunt Lulu(that is what we called her) is no longer here to meet her Great Grandson, but I know that she was smiling down on us that day while Benjamin snuggled up and fell asleep on the blanket she made with her very own hands many years prior.
Thank you Vicki and Joe for opening your home and allowing me the pleasure of photographing the family's newest blessing.
You know I have been sitting on pins and needles waiting to share the photos, and now that the baby announcements have been circulated, I knew it was safe to hit the publish button:)
