Meet Baby Gracie


You see those ridiculously cute baby photos everywhere now.  Have you ever wondered what it takes to make that sort of photo, though?

A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of working with an old friend, Heather.  She recently had a sweet little girl named Gracie and wanted some photos.  Gracie, it seems, wasn't too keen on the idea.  She fussed (quite) a bit.  I had absolutely no clue what to do.  Heather came up with some really great ideas, though.  I'll share her secrets below some of the photos.

Heather held her, and we draped a blanket over her arms.  Sneaky.   ;)

Do you have any other suggestions for this sort of shoot?
