Of course they didn’t let me off the hook that easily and I have to admit, I was a *little* intrigued by the pink thing.
So, I touched it.
Um, hello – Mommy? There’s ickiness on my fingers. You might want to come over here and handle this.
Ok…I see how it is. Well, maybe I can just wipe it off right…there. Ugh.
Do you see this? It’s on my leg. This is somehow acceptable to you?
Maybe I can just…uh…kick it away…
Ok now it’s ALL OVER ME. Omg! Get me outta here! Waaaahhh!
Wait a minute…I got some in my mouth…hmm, this stuff tastes kinda good! You might be onto something with eating this, Mommy…but… I have to say…
Ok, I can’t believe that you are just going sit there clicking that clicky thing while all this is going on here. Not cool. I am done.
Where’s that exit again?
I take lots and lots of pictures…obviously. Of my kids, of your kids. And while I am saving my pennies to afford a family session with one of my favorite photogs, I asked myself -why don’t I have more pictures of ME with my kids. Well, I’m a photographer so of course I’m always behind the camera. But then, really most moms are too. But that’s not the only excuse I have.
“I still have baby weight to lose.”
“Bad hair day.”
“No makeup on.”
And the most often used:
“No way, I look like crap right now.”
I have to change that. I have to. For them, not for me. You should change that too. I’m taking away the “I look like crap” excuse right now. Makeover. Then photoshoot. With your kids. Do it for you. Do it for them.
I’ve been photographing this little boy since he was about 6 days old! You’ll see lots more of him in future posts!
Oh it’s been awhile and so much has happened! An intensely busy Summer 2011 season, an even busier Fall 2011 season, some ups and downs, a pregnancy, and then… the birth of my third, a little girl! And here we are and it’s almost the Summer season again! In that time I had the privilege of photographing so many gorgeous families, so many unique and precious newborns, and lots of gorgeous moms-to-be. If you were following me on Facebook, you caught glimpses of my work as the months went on, but I have so, so many amazing sessions that I want to share. So many images that deserve to be seen bigger, and so many beautiful clients that deserve a little spotlight!
So, now that I am back from maternity leave, I plan to really catch up around here. I will be showing my work from the Summer 2011 and Fall 2011 season here on the blog, updating my website and blog with fresh work, and my Facebook page will still show my most recent sneak peeks as they happen. So stop by the blog every once in awhile to check out what new “old” stuff is up!
In the meantime – I will share just one of my sweet little Leia Madison…definitely one of my most challenging newborn sessions because it’s so difficult to photograph your own newborn. Not just because of the c-section but so many other issues when it’s your own! Anyway, I did manage to get a “few” I’ll share her full session later. For now here is one of my favorites: simple & pure, no fancy headbands or hats, no flashy props…just sweet, sweet, baby.
So sweet & pretty, Lacey was the melt-your-heart kind of one of year old session… Using the last image, we did a sign-in board for her first birthday party – a perfectly sized, digitally matted 20 x 20 so all her birthday guests could sign in – it was gorgeous!
The smiliest one-year-old EVER. I dare you to find a smilier one I think I got maybe 5 non-smiley shots and one of them is up there on my blog header because she was stunning in it. She’s just a happy baby, loved her!
Rieley was a sweetheart to photograph. She gave us so many expressions and so much of her sweet little personality.
