My niece, Leslie, recently had some photos taken of her and her sweet, sweet baby, my precious pie, Audrey. The photographer, Megan Ella Photography captured something really special and I found myself a bit speechless and close to tears as I reviewed them, starting with the one above. Check out pie's darling big toe, if you will.
You may feel differently, and that's perfectly okay, but when it comes to babies, I happen to think there's nothing more adorable than a baby wearing simple clothes, or just a diaper. Tiny babies need no enhancement, as far as I'm concerned.
And when it comes to photography, I am also drawn to simple, pure, honest, and real shots, and I appreciate photographers who don't rely on props or costumes, but take a natural setting and showcase its beauty, just as it is.
I think what I find so compelling about these photos is how they capture private moments, as if the photographer wasn't even there. Nobody's posing, and you almost feel as if you're peeking around the corner at a mother and her baby and the world in which they live. It's like a slice of pure Americana charm.
I'd like to invite you over to my niece's blog to see more of these wonderful photographs. I introduced Leslie as a blogger a good while back, but she's now using a different format and blog name, so if you haven't been in awhile, I'd be honored if you'd go over and introduce yourself, even follow along on Audrey's Adventures, if you're so inclined. You can tell her Aunt Dayle sent you.
Until next time, sweet friends, thanks for keeping me company.
