About a week ago, I had the great pleasure of photographing my great friend, Lenna’s, newborn baby boy with husband Kenyon. This is their 3rd baby boy! It always brings me joy to create such special memories for my friends during their precious moments in life. Lenna and Kenyon have 2-year-old twin boys who are incredibly happy to have a little brother.
The timing didn’t work out quite right to get him photographed in the first week because he decided to make his debut the day I left for Denver and when I got back, they were sick, so he’s actually 2 weeks here, but nonetheless, he’s fresh out of the oven!
He’s as precious as ever. For a few of the pictures, we used a hand made quilt and lion. The quilt was made by Johari Creations. I don’t remember the name for the lion, but they are handmade by women in Africa. Here’s a blurb from Johari Creations about what they do.
Johari Creations is a marketplace for handcrafted products made by artisans in developing countries around the world. We seek to come alongside our artisan partners with sustainable incomes, holistic development and shared work and responsibility. We believe amazing beauty can come from poverty and while the artisans handcraft stunning products, it is the artisans themselves we celebrate as “johari” – the Swahili word for jewel.“
Feel free to head over to Johari Creations to support this wonderful mission to support women in poverty with amazing talent. With that said, here are my favorites.
