That little roll just above and below the wristline, that mechanical and unfluid thumb joint figuring out its role, the delicate and perfectly formed cresents on the fingernails: these lovely defining details of baby hands fascinate me as a child portrait photographer.
I was invited to photograph Miss Little "O" on one of her first trips this spring to a small Seattle-area park in Capitol Hill. She was just loving these wee flowers and capturing her first crawls as a photographer was a delight.
Photo tip: Make sure to dress babies in comfortable clothing and at this stage showing the more "chubb" for photos the better, which should be fine with the warm early summer Seattle weather. I want to photograph all those baby rolls before they almost magically disappear. A great time window is between 6-9 mths.
