Ronan’s Football Outfit

4 Comments

On a whim, my sister-in-law and I decided that Ronan needed to be dressed up in a little football outfit and photographed in those delightful newborn poses you see from professional photographers.  I did a little research on Ravelry and found two patterns to modify.  Both pieces were made with Malabrigo Rios in “Coco” and “Natural.”  First, the hat:

I made a ton of modifications to this pattern.  All of them can be found here.  I (poorly) embroidered some laces on the hat to make it look more authentic.  I think it turned out pretty cute!

The soaker got some laces, too:

The photo shoot went incredibly well, considering I was behind the camera.  It would have been easier to pull off had I had full use of my knee, but I did what I could.  My sister-in-law did a fantastic job posing him, holding up backgrounds, and slipping him his pacifier when needed.  Ronan did not behave.  He was crying, grimacing, and/or covering his face for most of the shoot.  Don’t let these shots fool you!

This is by far my favorite. 🙂

Ronan and Daddy!

I’m looking forward to doing a shoot with the girls once the weather cooperates.  It’s been rainy for the past two days, and we’re expecting more tomorrow.  Maybe I can get some shots of them in their Christmas outfits!
