I am still having a difficult time believing Miss A. is ONE! Wow! This past year sure has flown by and I am so honored that I had the privilege of capturing it for her family. It’s always a little bittersweet for me when my Collection babies “graduate” with their one-year celebration session. I just adore watching them change and grow, but at the same time, I certainly wouldn’t mind if they stayed a “baby” for just a little bit longer. I totally sound like a mom! LOL. I am definitely a mom though, so I’m ok with wearing that hat 🙂
Miss A. was a spectacular model for me yesterday. It was a bit chilly in the morning, but she was a trooper and we had exquisite natural backdrops to work with! She was such a happy little lady and her eyes just sparkled every time she smiled at me. Oh I just love one-year-olds!
Well this little lady was definitely alert on Saturday for her newborn session! At just 10 days old, I think she was the most awake AND happy baby, that I’ve ever photographed. She was perfectly content to just lay in front of me, wide awake. LOL. Unfortunately for me though, she had clear opinions on how she should be posed – she is definitely all girl!! She did pass out just long enough for Mom and I to work together for some really stunning shots. Thank you Mom for your awesome assistance – what a team we make!!
I was so happy to photograph this newborn session this past weekend, but am now a little sad because it’s the last one I have scheduled before our adoption trip to China! I’m excited too, but I will certainly be going through some newborn withdraw in the future 🙂 We *still* don’t have our travel dates because of a few hold-ups on approvals, but we are really, really, really close! I’d love to say we’ll be leaving at the very end of May, but I think June is more realistic. I hope that everyone will follow along on my personal blog when we travel to bring home our daughter!
Another (almost) 6 months has passed, where the heck does the time go?! HERE is this (not-so-little) little guy’s newborn session from the fall – what a difference just a few months can make! I had such a fun time hanging out with him again – he is such a happy little man and it’s so easy to see how much Mom & Dad are in love with him. He was a little serious for us this morning, but Dad seemed to work his magic a bit for a few little smiles 🙂
I can’t wait to see what changes another 6 months will bring! My bet is this little one will be walking, moving all over the place and getting into everything by then! Thanks Mom & Dad for another great session, I’ll let you know as soon as I am finished with the rest of your proofs!
I am, indeed, blessed enough to be able to call this little guy “mine.” I fell in love with this image a few weeks ago, back when I shot it at Jerusalem Mill. It was one of those spur-of-the-moment, lifestyle shots … I called his name and he turned around with the most angelic smile on his face. His eyes pierce right through my heart every time he looks at me. Ahhhhh, total mama bliss 🙂
And because I have had *SO MANY* rain reschedules for my most recent sessions (a big WOW on the amount of rain April has given us!!), I haven’t had much activity on the blog … so I though I’d share this one of Ryan. Let’s hope all of these April showers really do bring big, gorgeous May flowers!
Well the weather didn’t cooperate for us this weekend and Miss A. wasn’t all that excited about the cold. What the heck happened to the gorgeous Sunday weather forecast? Regardless of that though, we still had a blast watching pretty Miss. A. with her cake. She forgot all about the cold when she saw her cake – I’m convinced it fixes *everything* 🙂
Here are just a few for now – the full sneak peek to come when we can get back out in warmer weather!
