More Blue Eyed Babies

Friday, February 6th, 2009

I have come to a conclusion that there are more blue eyed people in Indiana then any place. For those of you who don’t know I grew up in Canada, Burlington Ontario to be exact. Most people around me were dark haired , dark eyed. After taking a course in genetics at University I learned that brown eyes are dominant, so blue eyes are a rarity kind of like AB- blood.

Well this is not the case in Indiana. I am in the minority.

But I digress. I have photographed more blue eyed kids this month, and here are two more cherubs.

Mason & Molly Barker

I know it is a black and white but believe me their eyes are blue. Look at these individual shots.

I get asked to photograph siblings  all the time, and it is always interesting. Even though the older one loves the little one and wants to hold them all the time, their patience leaves a lot to be desired.  Mason had had enough, which is not unexpected from a 4 or 5 year old.

The babies usually get cranky and don’t feel real secure in the arms of someone not much bigger then them.

But I am always thrilled when I can get these kind of moments.

I love this image. I think it just oozes love.

How cute is this little guy. I must admit I have never seen such blue eyes on such a little person.

Benjamin is the first born of Mindy & Lance Brand. I think he is just about 6 weeks old.

Mindy & Lance came to me 2 years ago to photograph their wedding. It was an amazing affair.

It is just so special for me to be asked to continue as their family photographer.

I went to Mindy’s parents house to photograph these images the day of his baptism.
