Today I got to meet this heavenly baby girl. She was unbelievably good during her session, only waking up once to eat for a few minutes and then she was back to sleep. She definitely won the award for the best little model. I loved meeting her momma who looked fabulous after just having a baby! I can’t wait to finish editing all of the photos from this session. I will share more later in the week!
Mom and I had decided ahead of time that we were going to do this setup. I was excited to do something with flowers since spring is here but this morning when I woke up and looked outside, it had snowed! Say what?!
This sweet baby girl is just too gorgeous for me not to share more from her session!
Mya decided that she wanted to do ballet back in the fall. I thought for sure, she would give it a try and be ready to quit after a month. She’s never been a girly girl. She’s not the most graceful girl. And she’d rather be spending her time outside exploring in the dirt and woods. I was pleasantly surprised that she actually liked ballet and has stuck with it up until now. Now her recital will be coming up and I am so proud of her! She looks like she is having so much fun in class and she really gives it everything she’s got. I took ballet one year as a child and dance classes in college. I always dreamed of being a dancer, but our family couldn’t ever really afford dance classes. I always hoped I would have a daughter that would want to take dance classes. Mya has already said that she wants to do soccer in the fall, but I’m so glad that she gave it a really good shot! I put makeup on her today since they were doing pictures at the dance studio. I did her hair and after her makeup, told her to go look in the mirror. I wished so much that I had had my camera then because the smile on her face was like nothing I have ever seen in her. She just kept staring at herself and came back and told me she couldn’t believe how beautiful she looked. She looked so grown up! Did I cry watching her have her pictures taken at the studio? Me?! Noooo……okay, maybe a little. hehe Will I make it through the recital without making a fool out of myself? Probably not! I love this girl!
I had the greatest session today with this beautiful baby girl. She was the sleepiest newborn I’ve photographed yet. She slept through almost her entire session. She was a dream. I loved her parents too, so easy-going and they were such a great pair of parents! Lack of sleep sure takes some getting used to, but these two were still so cheerful. I loved everything about this session! I am having a hard time not sharing every photo that I edit but I’m going to restrain myself until later in the week when mom and dad get their gallery! Congratulations you guys! She is so, so beautiful!
I can’t believe I’m typing this. River is turning 4! In some ways I’m having a hard time with him growing up so quickly, but in other ways, it’s kind of nice. He had a VERY long case of the terrible two’s. lol He’s finally out of that phase, thank God. So now we can have our sweet little boy back. And he really is so sweet. Sometimes I just can’t even believe how lucky we are to have such a kind, caring, amazing little boy. I would be okay with time slowing down now because before we know it, he’s going to be off to kindergarten and that I can’t handle. That will not be a happy day for me. My husband has already said that I’m not allowed to take him on the first day. hehe When my kids have birthdays, I can’t help but think back to the day they were born. I’ll never forget the absolute joy that I felt the minute they put River on my chest. It was like nothing I had ever experienced. He has been a huge light in our lives ever since. I would do anything to go back and relive that early morning, okay maybe not the pain of it because good golly he was a big baby. lol But that moment when I first met him was a memory that will stay with me forever. I was so sleep deprived by the time he finally made it into the world but I felt like I was on cloud nine for a few days. He made me so very happy! Okay, I have to stop typing all of this or I’m going to be wanting another baby. So happy, happy day to my beautiful little Pisces!
Getting River to this spot was kind of tricky. I had to get the crate in the water, and then carry him over and get him sat down and then go find a good spot to stand to take his picture. As soon as I got to where I was going to stand, he said he had to pee! What?! lol
I’ve taken his picture on this bridge every year since his first birthday. It’s not my favorite spot but I had to do it for old time’s sake!
“Are we done now? Can I throw rocks in the water now?” Boys!
