I'm pretty sure I've told you how much I LOVE doing birth photography! Truly, I do love it! I think it's such a gift for yourself, your partner and eventually that precious bundle of joy!!
I have to admit...this birth was just a little bit more special for me than the other births I've photographed...for many reasons! For starters, this was the birth of Parker, my newest nephew, a momentous occasion for our family! It also meant so much to be there with my sister as she completed this amazing feat! What an awesome experience to be with her and the roomful of other women who were there solely to support Jamie & Ben during this special time! Here's a little slide show from this wonderful event!
This session was a favorite! It was also my 1st session after moving back to the big city. I really had fun with Pamela & Kevin, it was a great way to get to know each other before their wedding (more on that another post - but let me just say...fabulous!)
They both admitted to an iPhone addiction...Actually, I'd sit next to them if there was such a thing as a 12 step program for iPhones!
It's easy for me to forget, as I sit here in January, on the 5th day of school being canceled because of snow & ice, how incredibly hot it was that day! OMG! Bullets, we were sweating bullets! I'm not sure which extreme is best - cold, numb fingers as I type or bullets coming off of me?
It was hard to finish this session - it meant that I wouldn't be seeing this precious little girl every 4 months or so... Her year with me had ended. I tried my darndest to talk her parents into having another baby ASAP - but they couldn't be convinced...YET!
A nice thing about blogging 6+ months behind is getting the opportunity to go back and look at my work. It's nice to get a fresh perspective on the images I've taken! I always enjoy looking back!
Hot, humid July evening - not ideal conditions for a photo session...but somehow, it was the PERFECT session! These kids were awesome & really played along for me! The setting was great as well! They own a wholesale nursery and we had tons of great plants and bugs for the background (or foreground!)
Love, love, love this family! The entire time I was photographing them I kept thinking..."this is exactly the kind of relationship I want to have with my kids when they are teenagers!" They could write parenting books! Best Selling Parenting Books!
Oh Lord...I am so far behind blogging...I am trying to decide if it's worth catching up or just go forward?? I'm gonna try to catch up - be patient! In this case I'm going to cheat a little...and show you a collage from this fabulous family!
This Mom is super creative & witty & created a fabulous Christmas card with some of my images.It really ROCKED!!
