newborns are such special subjects to photograph. it's always an honor to be asked to take the first professional photographs of a new infant and this time was no different. cheyenne was just 2 weeks old and her mommy christine and daddy cornell were hoping to photograph her with her umbilical cord still attached since her older sister camila's had stayed intact until her 3rd week. we saw a large print of the photo camila had taken as a newborn and swore that this had to be cheyenne. the two are spittin' images, just 3 years apart. although it had already fallen out, cheyenne was still a lil' wee cutie. she stayed asleep the entire time, which allowed us to take plenty of photos in her very cooperative "moldable" state.
thanks for spending the morning with us, the 4 c's! it was great to see you at fuji a couple of days later. =)
