Baby Marcella

I'm an only child, and for my whole life, I've been the youngest one on my mom's side of the family.  That is, until a few weeks ago when my cousin Stephanie gave birth to baby Marcella June.  She is such a cutie, and I got to meet her about a week after she was born.  I don't really have much experience photographing newborns, but Steph and I had a great time trying to stylize little Marcella and figuring out ways to prop her up.  I'm sure this is just the first of many photo sessions to come!

So, here's to a new generation of little girls in our family!  I found this old picture of me as a baby with my cousins Tammany (holding me) and Stephanie:

P.S.  Don't forget that we're donating 50% of our family portrait sessions booked now through the end of April to the Japan disaster relief fund.
