CONTEST IS OVER! CONGRATS TO jenn alkatteemeh, COMMENT #28!!!
Sleeping newborn babies, need I say more? Nothing on earth is sweeter, more tender and innocent than a sleeping baby! I love watching my babies sleep and love taking pictures of them falling asleep in silly places. Can’t get enough of seeing those kinds of pictures. Well, apparently I am not the only one who feels this way! Two internationally acclaimed photographers Tracy Raver and Kelley Ryden who are also sisters and are quickly becoming leaders in a new genre of studio photography: newborn baby portraiture. And oh my goodness are they GOOD!
I received a beautiful copy of Sleeping Beauties: Newborns In Dreamland and I am so in love with it! The way these two photographers capture these sleeping babies is amazing to say the least. From the babies facial expressions down to the way their little bodies are posed, is so cute! This is certainly a book that you don’t want to miss out on at least looking at!
Of course I am going to add a picture of each of my sleeping babies too!
My little love Presley
And my handsome little boy, Zaden:
When I received this book, I sat down on the couch with my two little kids and we went through it. My kids loved to look at the newborn baby pictures and commented on each one. They want to look at the “little babies” all the time! This is not a childrens book, so I don’t let them look at it by themselves. This is Mommy’s book! I keep the book at the top of my book shelf so it is displayed for everyone who comes over to see. It even has little sayings by each picture. Beautiful, capturing and memorable!
Here is a recent story about the photographers from the UK Guardian.

About the Authors (taken off thier site):
Sisters Tracy Raver and Kelley Ryden are professional photographers who have helped to launch a new genre of studio photography: newborn baby portraiture. Forgoing elaborate props or artificial contrivances, their minimalist approach allows the emphasis to be on the newborns, resulting in a Zen-like simplicity that offers a glimpse of the grace and innocence that we all possess when we first enter the world.
See the sisters introduce the Sleeping Beauties line of products on The TODAY Show, April 8th, 2010 in the 8 AM hour.
