Carotenodermia and Easter Sunday

Happy Easter with a 9 month old

Sam asked me to take a picture on Easter morning. Lucky for me I have a portrait studio in the garage.

Kimi’s nose is orange. Graces nose did the same thing. It’s a harmless condition called carotenodermia, that presents as a conspicuous orange skin tint arising from deposition of the carotenoid in the outermost layer of the epidermis.

They say it’s from eating too much beta-carotene. Kimi eats large quantities of sweet potatoes, carrots and squash. She’s the healthiest eater in the house.

It’s cute to me.

I took portraits of Lily and Grace too.
