Genevieve was the first newborn that I photographed since I had a baby of my own. It's a totally different experience now, since I've been through it myself- especially when talking to new moms. I could listen for hours to everyone's unique "story". One thing that I learned from this session is that my baby is no longer a newborn anymore :( Although he is only 10lbs now, he seemed gigantic compared to this beautiful, petite, little girl. Meet Genevieve Grace...
My camera met TJ when he was just a "bump" in mom's belly. I photographed him when he was only a few days old (see post in January, '11). It was so wild to see him again, a year later, now a little boy. We had a great family session and I'm having a really hard time choosing favorites (you know how bad i am at this). I could probably post 50 photos here, but I'm limiting myself to 25. Check out this cutie!!
Happy Thanksgiving! I am truly a blessed woman! This year, I pause and think about these words from Joyce Meyer:
Since I'm still on my maternity leave, my only recent photos are of my own family :) So I'd like to share with you a little bit from our first Halloween as a family of three (four, if you include the dog- who we regard as our other "baby").
This is Kona and his friend Emma. They marched in the pet parade as superheros and were a big hit! Like the baby, they each had a cape with their initial on the back.
our crazy family
A little guy of my very own!
Meet Lucas Trey. Born September 16th, 7lbs.6oz., 20cm. He is perfect and I'm so in love. This is a photo of Luke at 4 days old. He loves holding his head up.
Needless to say, I can't stop taking photos. People on facebook must hate me. I know. With the thousands of photos I've taken (and no- that is not any kind of exaggeration) I have not even begun the editing process. I think I've come to accept the fact that I never will. Well, maybe one day- when I find the extra time (haha that's a joke! I may be 80 years old by then).
As of November 15th, I'm finally returning back to work. And boy, am I booked!!!! I'm so thankful and excited to reunite with my clients from last year! I see many sleepless nights in my future but I CANNOT WAIT to return. In fact, I've spent a small fortune on new props, backdrops, and equipment. Stay tuned for more holiday 2011 cuties!!!
