Precious. That’s the word that comes to mind when I look at this family and Edie and the way they look at her and care for her. Robert and Stephanie are fostering this adorable girl and more than anything I want them to be able to keep her. Because I know they will love her. And give her the things she needs. And give her a wonderful childhood and a safe place to grow up. But most of all, love.
My desire to photograph baby chub was burning inside of me ever since I saw this photo. So thank you, Edie, for staying calm, and not crying when we kept repositioning you, and making stupid noises to get you to laugh, and taking your binky away from you. I’ll photograph you any day you want! As long as rolls are included.
