A couple of days after Audrey was born, one of my good friends from college paid us a visit with her DSLR camera in tow. She's not actually a photographer by profession, but she loved taking pictures. And she certainly knew how to take good shots.
She didn't tell me what exactly she was up to, but she just kept taking pictures of Audrey. A few weeks after that she said she had something for me. And this is what was waiting underneath the wraps!
Collage photos by Carrie Arnaiz-Alejandrino
It was a wonderful collage of photos of Audrey's face, eyes, nose, lips, ears, hands and feet! It was framed nicely and came with a cd of the photos as well. It was truly a wonderful gift for a first time mom like me! And whenever I look at it, I can't believe how time has flown by so fast and how tiny Audrey's feet and hands once were.
And so when Natalie came, I made my own version of this collage. I tried to take similar shots and laid them out in almost exactly the same way. Thanks so much for the idea Carrie! :) I really love looking at these photos and even if Natalie is just a few months old now, so much about her has already changed physically. Babies really grow up so fast!
