fat baby is turning 1 in just a few days

My how the time goes by so quickly. It seems it was just yesterday that I was just meeting him. Ben snapped this picture as they handed him to me for the first time. I love that he is screaming like a mad man and I look I just went shopping. Doncha all wish you had easy labors like me. ha ha ha ha ha!

And then comes my favorite picture. The nurse questioned my ability to walk, let alone walk with a big camera since I had an epi. I insisted that I couldn't miss this moment and am so glad that I did. This was taken just about 2 hours after he was born and he was getting his first bath ever by daddy. The nurse said she could cry, that she had never ever seen a baby so content, especially while bathing. Let me tell you that I have a water baby on my hands. He could live in the bath if I let him which is awesome!

And now to the new stuff.....his bday invite. It doesn't really say fat baby in real life so don't get your panties in a bunch. Isn't he so stinkin cute. He loved every minute of our cake smashing session a few weeks ago. My baby boy will be 1 on Sunday. Off to cry now. )-:

baby sydney again

Just 4 days old and such a cute little chub. I had to post these real quick for mom and dad to see. The day I bought my new baby...I mean camera...I was called to the hospital to do their delivery photos. Within minutes of being in labor, both mom and dad said they were buying it from me. I brought it to them at their session and it was so hard for me to let it go but I know it is good hands. Still so sad though. I was quite attached to the thing but I do love my new beast. It is pretty. (0:

So I do have a crazy amount of new sessions to share soon.....an engagement session for a wedding I am shooting in June, another senior session and others as well. I have been so busy I haven't had a change to post so I promise I will over the next
few days as I struggle to catch up. Anyways, without further ado.....baby (I don't wanna sleep until 8:30 at night)Sydney.

I got to document the most amazing thing

The gorgeous belly you see here had me do her delivery photos. We had a few false alarms and I have been on alert for the last few weeks answering every call she made to me. It has been an excited time waiting for this little one to arrive and when I got the call at about 5 last night I ran to the neighbors to have someone watch the midgets until Ben could get home. I booked to Costco for an extra memory card because I had just bought a new camera only hours before I got the call and it needed more than my old card. I ran through Costco looking like a maniac or someone who was trying to steal something. It was I am sure
pure entertainment. I got all the way to Longview in record time without speeding and was so excited. We all sat around and laughed and talked until the wee hours of the night.

Baby Sydney arrived healthy, chubby and cute at 2:15 in the morning. We were all exhausted especially momma (who did the most amazing job). I can't even begin to tell you about the amazing experience I had last night in that little room. It was during this whole time I thought to myself how incredibly blessed I am to be able to call this my job. It was this moment that made me so thankful that had chosen me to capture this most precious time with them, their friends and family. I was able to document something so special to them and that right there folks is why I do what I do. For moments....the pain...the tears...the laughter...more tears...and then new life. I am so thankful. Here are a few to share of the little chubba. I love the little foot one. It is so purple and so cute. Hopefully these photos make everyone smile tonight too.

my computer is sleepy

I got on the computer today to get knee deep into editing 2 sessions that are due. Now one of my editing programs is going wonky on me. It wont load the pictures properly. Hubby has informed me that my lack of clearing out my pictures and sorting them properly is lagging the whole thing down. I see no problem in my lack of organization. It makes perfect sense to me but apparently not the hard drive. So this means I am knee deep into now cleaning my desktop of, emptying out folders of pictures from like everywhere and going to buy more memory tomorrow. Sooooo not fun all. I will be back to my regularly scheduled crazy ramblings and beautiful photographs tomorrow.

2 posts in one night....yay

I think this is only the 2nd time I have done two posts in the same day but I promised mom I would put this up tonight. We did senior pictures for him a few weeks ago at their house and I had such a great time doing them. Here are few from the session.

We did the belly photos and now the baby is here........ and she is so cute........ and sweet........ and it makes me wanna have another one........ and I love her......... and I want to eat her up......... and then I see how tired momma is......... and I reconsider my crazy thoughts when I remember how nice it is that fat baby sleeps for 12 hours straight now........ and I never want to go back to that.......well at least not for a while.

love the size perspective with big sisters foot on this one

a big sister that is in LOVE with her baby sister. It was so cute.

I always love doing this shot

She didn't want to sleep much for me so it was hard to scrunch her up like a peanut but I tried my best

little peek

Here is a little peek for mom and dad. These boys were so stinkin cute and good for photos even with the wet weather. The best part is they live like two blocks from me. I am so happy mom found me! I got to try out my new garage sale find old chair which also made me happy. It was $2 so I ran to my car to dig up change and brought him $1.96 of mainly pennies. He happily took it and off I went with my chair. I soooo love it!!! I need to go to garage sales more often (it was honestly my second time ever going) so does anyone want to join me??? (0:

I love these new little blocks. So perfect for baby and belly photos

and of course a photo shoot from me isn't complete without a feet shot of some sort. It's kinda an obsession and honestly I really think feet are ooogy gross but for some reason I like taking pictures of them.

ahhhhhh and the old chair. so in love with it.

seriously, aren't these two cute or what?

I tried a little bit of a different processing on this one and really like the look of it.

This three month old was absolutely beautiful. She had the cutest curly hair and the yummiest rolls. I just loved her.
