Missing you ask? No. I am here. However define ‘here’. Between welcoming our fourth monkey early in September, editing many family sessions, and playing nurse to sick kiddos one would think I would have time to post pictures of the adorable families and newborns I have gotten to work with. Alas my chubby new monkey needs to snuggle. Medication administered. Stories read too. The computer is probably sick of me too. If you are waiting to see something new I can promise you will be happy soon.
In the meantime what are your family traditions this time of year? I love being together as a family any time of year but it seems that we make more time to take time together. My favorite Thanksgiving tradition is leftovers on Friday. The first Turkey dinner I made was when I was 15. My parents had divorced and it was our first one without going to families. Mom had to work. (she’s a nurse) So I decided to do the dinner myself. Well. Let’s just say that 10lb of potatoes was mashed then eaten between Thursday and Sunday by yours truly! I made my first turkey and I did a decent job. It wasn’t dry or anything. There was enough food for a family of 15 and we were just 3. Leftovers galore. Today I love that my kids pick what they want on their own from the fridge leftovers and tell me how much they love what they are eating. Normally it is a headache to get all three to eat the same thing. Seeing the excitement on the kids faces as they watch the parades in the morning. Watching M as he “calls” and then proceeds to devour the drumstick. Pulling out the Christmas decorations since Thanksgiving is officially over.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
Normally I work with newborns from brand spanking new to 12-14 days old. They sleep better, are squishier, haven’t lost their hair yet, and have little to no baby acne. Well this little one didn’t come to me so early. We celebrated his 8th week! the day of his session. He had really bad colic for the first while and mom knew that he wouldn’t cooperate yet at the same time knew that she didn’t want any more time to fly by before he was up and crawling. We had to work fast to get any shots of him sleeping. So this is my first infant session as of yet.
He did however feel the need to relieve him self every 20 minutes on mom… not once on dad. #1 is by far better than #2 over and over if you ask me. We just couldn’t stop laughing at how much he peed. It really had to be a record.
Mom and dad were so amazing and sweet to work with! They love to ride and wanted to use Dad’s vest as one of the props. I loved it! Thank you both so much for inviting me into your great home to catch this brief moment in time of your sweet family of three! Congratulations again!
This little beauty is a sneak peek for mom, dad and family of course. More to come soon. Doesn’t she look dreamy?
Still playing catch up on posting. These aren’t in order of session date. So if you don’t see your photos don’t worry they are on the list.
I don’t think that I could ever get tired of working with tiny ones. I really do melt when I get to work with them. This little beauty was only 11 days old for her first session with the camera. Mom and dad are family friends and this is their first ‘princess’. Love her pouty lips and creamy skin. Grandma requested angel wings. What do you think?
I have been so busy being wife, mommy and editing wonderful sessions I haven’t even had a chance to post any here… but you noticed didn’t you. Here is a quick shot of a gorgeous bride and groom to whet your appetite.
More to come soon. Enjoy.
I haven’t been big on entering contests but I thought that I’d give this one a try. This sweet bro couldn’t help but laugh when I told his big sis to give him a smooch on the cheek. Thanks for being great.
