Newborn photographer Ute-Christin Cowan can't take pictures of babies these days. Like most of us she's sheltering in place in her home in Milford, Connecticut, and so are her clients.
But she loves her art and is carrying on with her craft, even if the only subjects showing up at her studio these days are take out dishes.
"When you love food and are not allowed to photograph babies you help your local restaurants out and have some fun in the studio by yourself. 😂" she captioned her photos on Facebook.
Cowan tells Motherly her family loves going to restaurants, saying "but these days it is hard for us because my newborn/family business has to be closed due to the executive order through May 20—so no money is coming in. I wanted to still support our local food businesses because I want them to still be there when this is all over. I was thinking of a way to support them and also do what I like best, taking pictures!"
And so Cowan took twee little portraits of baby hot dogs from Dogtown and swaddled some bagels from Devine's Bagels and Cafe.
