Newborn Photos for Halloween

Jackson and I have had a couple of photo sessions. Above, it looks like he is thinking, "Oh no, there is that crazy woman with that thing again!"

A friend told me that it is best to take photos when they are in a "milk coma", soon after being fed. Since he was born near Halloween, he has several outfits for that holiday. Here are a couple.

When I was in Michaels, I saw this little costume for an angel, wings and a halo. I could not resist getting those and photographing him with them. I also want a little newborn hat with bear ears, but could not find one like I want. I might try to make one out of some fuzzy socks I bought. I did see a hand knitted cap up in the mountains with flower petals on it. I think I will start collecting such things to use as props for newborn shots.

We are all tired, but doing well. I will be here helping out until Saturday....hopefully, I can remember my way home!
