For Hailey's 4-month session, I wanted to create a sleeping baby portrait with a languid, Renaissance feel.
After we finished the first part of the session -- which showcased Hailey's newfound ability to lift her head and engage the people all around her -- her mommy nursed her, and the baby fell fast asleep. I fashioned a comfy bed from a beautiful wooden tray and fleece blanket. Then I decorated the set with complementary flowers and lace to match the decor and Hailey's satin bloomers.
When she was laid on the small bed, Hailey looked like a little cherub without her wings. In this portrait, I love her expression and the delicate way her hands and feet both cross. She looks beautiful and peaceful.
I wonder what she's dreaming of.
