Every time I do this (photograph my girl while sleeping), I think it will be the last time she lets me. Thank you, Lily. Thank you. She’ll be 2 in a couple of weeks.

    gawwwd, her eyes.. she’s soo beautiful Carrie.

  2. She is just beyond gorgeous. Lily is growing up, but every time she sleeps like this for pictures it’s like going back in time to when she was a tiny little newborn. These images will be so treasured 🙂

    🙂 God has so blessed you with beautiful babies! She’s got perfect little blondish hair, a georgous creamy skin color, eyelashes to die for and a sweet little grin! 🙂 GOOD JOB MOMMY! (and daddy… I guess he helped a little huh?)

    I just subscribed to your blog and am absolutely loving it. Thanks for the constant inspiration. Your little girl is beautiful. I am looking for a good macro lens, what did you use for the lashes?

  10. Carrie says:

    Thanks so much everyone! – I used the 5D + 100mm 2.8 macro for the eyelashes. My main camera is the Nikon D3, but I keep a Canon around just so I can use this lens… I love it!

    Dearest Carrie,

    I discovered your artistry by shere coincidence around the time Lily was born and have always been so enchanted with the glimpses of her growth that you and the very talented Ms Brittany Woodall have shared with your readers.

    As a mother of a little girl who is six but still my ‘baby’, it’s always so bittersweet to watch them grow… Thank heavens they do though – it means they’re healthy and have so much more to look forward to…

    Wishing you and your family all the best, and a very Happy Birthday to your precious Lily.

  22. liz says:

    how very sweet!

  23. Danna says:

    awwww look how big she is, it is so not fair that they grow up so fast. Beautiful images.

  24. Rebecca says:

    She’s growing up so fast … but still has so much “baby” left in her to treasure. You’re one lucky mama (and one rockin’ photographer – that lashes shot is to die for!).

  25. Jenilee says:

    Wow, first I have to say you are AMAZING! You images are breath taking!!!
    How are you able to photograph your daughter sleeping nude? My daughter turns two this Saturday and I think she’d either wet the bed or not like sleeping nude. I’ve been wanting to try something similar but not quite sure how to make it work.

  26. Krysten says:

    Simply amazing photography, Carrie. I stalk your blog because you’re such an inspiration to me. Your daughter is so gorgeous!! 🙂

  27. Chris Paxman says:

    I LOVE the image captioned “Naps make happy babies”

    Just blog-hoppin and came across your site.

  28. Melanie says:

    Love these! THanks for the inspiration I so totally needed that!

  29. Jenny says:

    I want to hug her she is soooo gorgeous. I know how you feel. If we could just keep them little…

  30. Sandy says:

    Your images are absolutely breathtaking!! 🙂 It does make me a tiny bit sad how quickly they grow up….
