When I met with Janelle – she told me about her little guy at home – and he reminded me so much of my Fitzy! I couldn’t wait to meet him!

That little baby leg on her momma’s hip. The small things.

OH MY HEART!

SUCH A SWEET LITTLE GUY!

I LOVE THOSE SHOTS!

And that last one – with his little foot out-of-focus!

LOOK AT THOSE SMILES!

OH MY HEART! I JUST ADORE THOSE ONES!

Janelle & Patrick – THANK YOU AGAIN for being so AWESOME!

WELCOMING BABY *R*

I met Janelle after she saw Aszur’s birth photos! She was the first birth client that I hadn’t already known!

We had been texting back and forth and she let me know that she was being induced on Monday April 24th! We kept in touch all day Monday and my in-laws took the boys Monday night just in case something happened in the night or early in the morning! I went to bed around 10:30 and had my phone RIGHT NEXT TO ME! At 2 AM I woke up in a panic and checked my phone – I had a missed text at 11 PM and another at 1 AM – the one at 1 AM was certainly urgent. I texted her back and her husband said – the baby will be here in 5 minutes! It would take me 40 minutes to get there – so I knew I was missing it – but I went anyway!

I felt ABSOLUTELY AWFUL! I said – you should have called me!

But – again.

There was a baby already born and she was beautiful.

So I took the pictures!

I LOVE THOSE SHOTS!

I ABSOLUTELY ADORE THAT LAST SHOT!

OH MY HEART!!

Janelle & Patrick – thank you SO MUCH for being awesome and understanding and just AMAZING!

Thank you SO MUCH for asking me to witness this intimate moment in your lives!

Angie lives in the mid-west – but her mom bought her a gift certificate for Christmas – FOR A PHOTO SESSION!

The BEST present EVER!

She was home visiting her family – and we snuck in a session with her sweet guys!

ISN’T HE A CUTIE!

OH MY!

I LOVE that last shot! Something about a daddy holding his baby!

Bare piggies!

Angie – thank you SO MUCH for coming over with your guys! I can’t WAIT to see you again!

I CANNOT believe it’s been a YEAR since this little girl was born!

BUT FIRST – the brothers!

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THAT SHOT! Perfectly real-life!

OH MY WORD!

That brother of hers – he is SO excited about ALL THE THINGS! His excitement is contagious!

TIME FOR CAKE!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that little hand sneaking in to grab some icing!

SHE LOVED IT!

*N* had to show me his collection of GOLD! He caught a leprechaun – but it escaped!

And giants! ALL THE GIANTS! ALL THE BEANSTALKS!

When I got home and picked out my favorites – I realized that I didn’t have too many – hardly a handful of little *C* alone!

And it was HER birthday session after all!

SO – I met up with her a week later!

LOOK AT THOSE EYES!

And because life with a BRAND NEW ONE-YEAR OLD – is LIFE ON THE RUN!

THANK YOU SO MUCH for asking me to capture your first year as a family of FIVE!

I hope to see you all again soon!

You’ve seen the newborn pictures of this little SWEET THING!

I’ve only got two little pictures to share – but she’s so CUTE – I had to show you!

Watching Vanessa with her little girl – it’s so heartwarming!

BABY *R* – NEWBORN

Filed under: . babies . babies . babies .,babes,family,just because,lifestyle,newborns,portraits — admin at 10:53 am on Thursday, May 25, 2017

I had told Ericka to remind me to come down for her newborn pictures – and then life happened.

I texted her when I had nothing to do one afternoon – not long after *R* was born. I asked if I could come down to take her photos – like now.

And she said. YES. I love these friends!

So – I dropped the boys off at Mom-Mom and Bacca’s (grandma and grandpa – who happen to live next door) and drove the not-even 3 miles it takes to see this sweet baby!

OH LITTLE BABY!

SWEET SWEET SISTERS!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that last shot!

*J* was NOT loving the smell of that diaper! I LOVE THAT ONE!

She was such a good little model!

I absolutely ADORE that last shot – and the next ones!

MY FAVORITE!!

THAT SWEET FACE!

I LOVE THOSE ONES! Such sweet little sisters!

Ericka – YOU ARE AMAZING!

WELCOMING BABY *R*

My friend Ericka – she’s a ROCKSTAR of a momma! She asked if I would photograph the birth of her second sweet baby – OF COURSE!

We had this crazy idea that she wouldn’t make it to her due date – April 4th. On April 3rd – she came over for dinner with her older daughter. We ate and laughed and watched that little baby move around. And then. She said – I think maybe I’m leaking? Maybe. I’m just not sure!

It’s absolutely crazy to me that each birth can be so different and we can forget exactly what happens each time!

So – she texted me around 10 that night and said – she was going to the hospital. And OH! Her water was breaking – so be on baby watch!

I took my phone to bed with me and went to sleep. And waited.

Around 4 AM I got a text saying that she was progressing! So – I figured I would go over and HOPE for a baby before morning when Jared had to go to work! I ate breakfast in quiet. Got a shower real quick without checking on kiddos. And left my driveway at 4:30 – getting a text from her saying she was 5 cm. I made it to Wellsboro – about 20 minutes away – and parked at the ER – got my bags – and went to the desk. Where she told me that I had to go back OUT to the car and drive AROUND the building and go in the back entrance and ask to be let in. ARGH! SERIOUSLY!

So – I got in the room – at 4:51 and that sweet baby was born at 4:49 – YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!

I was so sad. And mad. And then sad again.

BUT – a baby was already born and she was beautiful!

So I took some pictures!

THAT LITTLE FACE! I can’t even deal with her!

AND – she was born on her due date!

Little *R* – you are loved. You are wanted. You were prayed for. You will do wonderful things.

Ericka – YOU are strong. YOU are beautiful. YOU are brave. I LOVE you dear friend!

That first year seems to FLY BY! And that’s just from my perspective on the outside looking in to capture the milestones!

Katie & Chris hired me to photograph their wedding and then we met up again when their little guy was born – and again at 6 months!

And NOW – he’s ONE YEAR OLD ALREADY!

This child – he is GORGEOUS!

We took his newborn photos on this bed – so I knew we had to go back and take his ONE YEAR photos there too!

That curl! Those blue eyes!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE THOSE SHOTS!

SO HAPPY!

OH MY WORD!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE THAT LITTLE SMILE!

Those CURLS!

Dancing with momma!

Katie & Chris – thank you SO MUCH for asking me to capture the memories of this little guy’s FIRST year! I am honored!
