Baby Hattie

The newest edition to my friends’ family is little Hattie. I photographed her big sister Josie at the end of 2011, and at the end of 2012, just before Christmas, I had the pleasure of getting snap-happy with Hattie (love her name!).

And, like her older sister, Hattie showed off her lungs for me with a surprisingly loud wail that sounds more like a 6 month old than newborn. And I fully admit that I love pictures of crying babies. They unleash their full emotions, something that as an adult, I wish I could do more of. Here she is on the cusp of letting go. I love those in-between moments.

Justin lovingly dotes on his daughter, making sure she’s comfortable.

I adore this family of four.

Pentax Spotmatic SLR

I inherited this beauty last weekend, and it’s not even my birthday. My uncle was cleaning out his house and came upon his old Pentax SLR. He offered it to me, his “favorite niece, Denise.” He says this often.

“I’m your only niece,” I often retort back. This time was no exception.

Along with the camera and the 50mm, he gave me a 28mm, and an 85-205 zoom. And a tripod. Sweet! A complete kit!

I didn’t realize he was a camera buff back in the day, taking black and white photos. Perhaps one day he’ll show me his collection of photographs.

Now to pick up some film!
