The pink dress was a gift for Katie Rose from her great aunt Adelaide. Phyllis wanted a photo of Katie Rose wearing the dress to send to Adelaide.
When I photograph kids, I sometimes like to ask them to jump for me. I couldn’t very well ask Katie Rose to jump, as she can’t walk or even crawl yet. So I photographed her lying on a black velvet background to create a virtual jump.
On another note, today is Katie Rose’s theoretical due date, even though she was actually born in early May. Welcome to the world, Katie Rose: you are our miracle.
