3 + 2 + 1 + 1 + 1 -- Babies!

I'm still giddy from the change of temperature and season. I posted some spring things and then a mother's day inspiration and now, as promised, here are some babies. I have so many wonderful pictures that baby photographers have sent me I don't know which to choose, but the triplets and twins head the list.

I'll start with a photo sent to me by one of the most talented baby photographers -- Gina Miller of Gina Miller Photography in Indianapolis, Indiana. Her website is and her blog is . I hope you'll get a chance to look at both because they really are an inspiration.

She wrote to me and asked me to make three of my signature BurryBabies Pixie Hats for triplets she was going to be photographing right after they were born -- two girls and a boy. This turned out to be quite a challenge for her since when they weren't wiggling they were howling! How anyone could photograph triplets is beyond me, but not as beyond me as how anyone could care for triplets! Gina's great talent is in capturing the personality of her subjects, even if they're only 1 day old.

At any rate, she took some adorable photos of the triplets. Here are two of them:


Hope that little boy doesn't spend a lifetime being ganged up on by his sisters!


Next is a photo of darling boy-girl twins that was photographed by Jennifer Mott another great photographer and a sweet person. You can see her work at She's located in Toledo, Ohio.


Aren't they adorable?


Now I have to choose from the many pictures of babies taken just one at a time by an assortment of brilliant photographers. How will I choose? For the sake of brevity, I'm just going to add three more babies here, but if you want to know about other baby photographers who might be in your area, please don't hesitate to contact me.

First off, here's a darling photo of a just born baby girl taken by Jackie Pettit of Jackie Pettit Photography in Morgan, Utah. Her website is and when you go there, you'll see a photo of a beautiful older baby wearing one of my multicolored hats. You can really see from her photos what an encouraging and friendly person she is.


Is that not the prettiest newborn girl ever? Well, maybe your daughter was even prettier -- mine was -- but I don't have a photo that cute of her. Jackie's pictures are really lovely, so please take a look at her website.


Next up is a photo taken by the talented Elizabeth Smith of EBS Photography in Atlanta, Georgia. Her website is . The opening page on her website features another sweet picture of a baby in this green hat.


Everyone who sees that baby just loves him. He looks so cozy and sweet all curled up.


Finally, I'm going to stop with a photograph of a new baby boy taken by the delightful, talented, and friendly Barbara Frevert. To find her, just google Barbara Frevert Photography. She's located in Wayne, Nebraska.


Do you love that little starfish hand as much as I do?


So that's it folks! All babies all the time today!

In my next post I hope to be writing about my jewelery design process and offer some useful tips. I hope you'll stop by.
