I photographed little Ily when she was eight days old, and now she’s eight months old! My how time flies….

seattle childrens photographer-london childrens photographer-mackelmore-mallorymacdonald-I saw this little fur coat, and thought Ily would just look darling in it. Between the hat, the coat, and the sheepskin rug, she was pretty much swimming in fur. She was (mostly) patient with us, as we played “dress up,” but I think it all caused her little chubby body heat to increase by about 20 degrees.

As soon as her little body was donned in the fur coat, she looked like a mini-Mackelmore. I just had to trace down a gold chain in my jewelry stash to seal the deal. 🙂
