The idea for this composite came to me as I was taking pictures in our pasture just after the hay had been cut the last time for the year. Some of the tops of the sage grass were still left, not picked up by the rake and baler. I thought that if I were a bird, I could make a great nest out of the leftovers. So I gathered up as many bunches as I could find and carried them back with me to take pictures of them. I took images over two different days and different lighting conditions. I had in mind that I might be able to use them in a composite when my friends' new baby would arrive. I went to work looking for yarn that would fit in the scene and started knitting a dress for her based on her projected weight. Lucky for me, I finished it just in time!

At the beginning of her session, I took pictures for her GrandDad's Christmas present. He coaches football and both her Dad and Uncle played on the team a few years ago so I was able to use their jerseys and helmets for props.

I also took the opportunity to use a Christmas cap and scarf that I knitted last year for a session but the baby was fussy by the time I got around to using them. This time the subject had no problem being sleepy!

But she was awake for at least one!
