Baby Nellie

Nellie Patten (infant) and Jean Canady  1901 Even though this photo was NOT done originally by a professional I did have fun colorizing it.  Each time I redo a photo I’m learning more little tricks of the trade.  Yes, I know I have a ways to go but I’m tying to learn more about shading and “blending” colors.  I love this photo and plan on doing a “Mother’s Day” LO with it.  This Mother’s expression is precious!  I only know her as “Jean”.  Probably a wife to one of Mother’s many Connecticut Cousins!
