This newborn session was special for so many reasons… Of course, the first being that Tripp is my little nephew and I’m smitten with him. But it was also special, because I was able to collaborate with my sister-in-law and little brother to make it not only a celebration of Tripp, but of our families. We’re a sentimental crew with homes filled with treasures from those who have come before us. Everything used in Tripp’s shoot held special meaning for us…
Suitcase – Tripp’s Great-Grandfather, Dwight Dugger carried this suitcase during WWII.
White Blanket – Both Tripp’s Mama and his Aunt Paige were brought home from the hospital in this blanket. It was handmade by Tripp’s Great Grandmother, Juanita.
Blue Blanket – This blanket belonged to Tripp’s Daddy and was handmade by his cousin, Sandy Jo.
Wooden Swing – Tripp’s Pop Wilson made this swing, just after he was born. The wood came from a stair tread that was in his Great Great Grandfather Wilson’s homestead.
I couldn’t help but feel that we weren’t the only ones celebrating Tripp that day. He’s a special little guy, with so many people who love him!
