Starfish Babies!

Note:  I am posting this a few days late because I wanted to give Amanda the first “publish” of the photos!  You can see the BEST shots over on her blog at

The temptation to make a blooper reel is high, but I just don’t have the time.  I tried to choose the photos that were not placed on Amanda’s blog, so many of them are of crying children, but cute just the same!  I have a whole new appreciation for photographers who shoot children now!!  Wow, it is  a big job and keeping everyone happy is SO MUCH WORK!  We had several babies that were either completely stoic or who would not stop crying.  We did the best we could and I think over all we got some great shots!

    WOW!!! It’s so fun seeing these babies, some new, others grown up from when I met them. What an opportunity of a lifetime. It’s fun following your journey. We LOVED XIAN!!! I’m envious!

    These babies are beautiful. It’s fun to see new ones, and others growing up from when I met them last. We LOVED Xian, what a fun city, and I agree with you, the Muslim quarter was still so authentic and non-commercialized. I’m so jealous. Keep sharing pictures of these beautiful babies. You did an amazing job photographing them.
