Not long ago I visited an exhibit at a local museum and was inspired to create a series of images incorporating some of the most beloved classic masterpieces into my newborn photography.

I designed the backdrops by hand dyeing raw wool as well as deconstructing coloured yarn. My whole family participated helping me create each design. Add in an adorable baby and you have an image with impact.

These are the first six in a series of twelve images I plan to create.
