Recently I had the pleasure of photographing this handsome young man, Keegan. I photographed Keegan’s older brother, Riley, a couple of years ago, in the same christening gown. In fact, Keegan’s family members have been photographed in this same gown going back over 100 years, now into the 5th generation. The gown still looks fabulous!
Whenever I photograph a young baby, I try to imagine what the world will be like when he or she is 60, 70 or 80 years old. My imagination runs wild for awhile, then I give up and just pray that the child will grow up happy, healthy and safe. Keegan is certainly starting off life as about the happiest baby I’ve ever known!
We did black and white versions of all the images as well, in part to match the pictures taken in the early 1900’s. Do you like the color or black & white version better? I’d love to hear from you. Incidentally, please click on each picture to see it in a LARGER size.
Thanks, Keegan, Mom and Dad for giving me the honor to be a part of this five generation photographic family tradition.
