“Each day comes bearing its own gifts. Untie the Ribbons.” Ruth Ann Schabacker
One day I heard strange sounds in my living room. I discovered my housekeeper perusing “Sleeping Beauties – Newborns in Dreamland” by sisters Tracy Raver & Kelley Ryden.
My normally quiet housekeeper had been drawn to my coffee table book provided by Seller’s Publishing for review. She couldn’t contain how much she loved this book. She said she had never seen such beautiful pictures of babies.
Tracy and Kelley photograph newborns when they can be snuggled in womblike positions. Natural hand crafted wraps, knit hats, baskets, furs and slings make warm cacoons which add to the organic feel of their photos. Inspiring quotes like the one at the top of this article accompany the photos.
My housekeeper and I give this book a big thumbs up. It makes a perfect baby shower gift.
If you are a photographer and want to capture compelling photos of babies for friends and relatives, study these masters. Each baby only has a few days in their entire life to memorialize this period of tiny innocence. “Sleeping Beauties – Newborns in Dreamland” by sisters Tracy Raver & Kelley Ryden will provide inspiration for picture perfect results.
