I haven’t blogged in months and months (and months) because I just keep on saying “this week I’m going to get a new blog theme” – one that let’s me post mongo big pics and just looks more like me.  But it isn’t happening, now is it.  

I’ve decided something is better than nothing right?  So – a series of favorites over the past six months or so.  And back to previewing for my clients!  I have a few shoots scheduled for this weekend and I can’t wait!

AND the Nursing is Normal shoots are wrapping up and we’ll have a showing on Gallery Night October 2nd at the Goodman Center – I can’t wait for that either!  

Hope all is well in your world my friends.

One of my absolute dearest friends from college went and had herself a babe.  Sigh.  Such loveliness.  I was fortunate to be invited to be a part of her birth, and a more gorgeous mama I have not yet seen – and I believe all laboring women possess a glowing wonder that pushes them to near-goddess status.  But those pics are not really mine to share – but some of the pics I did at one month…well, here you be:

Oh – I am already so happy to know you little girl.  And isn’t that hair the best thing you’ve ever seen?

What’s a girl to do?

I am currently sitting in front of an open window, with the sounds of traffic rolling past, listening to good tunes (the new Neko = fantastic), thinking spring looks better every year.  Yes, I know that it’ll get cold again, and it will probably snow again, but this kind of day.  Well.  I feel wondrously blessed – as do most all of us in the area, I’m sure.

Things have been busy here – lots of changes happening at Happy Bambino where I wear another one of my many hats, and where I was fortunate to have a show this past month.  And now the spring photo shoots are gearing up – folks are excited to get outside for some photos, as am I! And oh goodness, I just signed my first wedding contract and have another meeting in the pipeline for a fall wedding.  Squeeee!

So, expect another flurry of posts catching up what I’ve been up to…  And dang-it, I VOW to be a better blogger!

I love six month olds…

I walked away from this shoot thinking I should only shoot 6mo who have just woken up from naps.  They are happy little folk, who for the most part, can’t quite get away yet!

(You might recognize this little one – I did her three-month pics in the fall.  She was so much smiley-er this time!!)

The shoot was originally scheduled for pre-holidays, but with all of the snow and December-scheduling-craziness, it had to be rescheduled.  Luckily the holiday greenery was still up!!

This was the largest family grouping I’ve done, and boy did I learn alot!  They were happy folk though, and that makes all the difference….

For the most part, I love color, but with so many different groupings of folks, I loved the way they came together with the black and whites.

ohhh newborns…

How sweet is this peanut?  She wasn’t really having any of the sleepy shots, that’s for sure!  This girl wanted to be a part of the action – but beautiful awake shots of newborns are hard to come by – so kudos for mom and dad!

This family is hands-down one of the most beautiful families I have ever met.  We squeezed in a photoshoot on Christmas Eve in the span of an hour so that everyone could be there – it was crazy-crazy-crazy, but there was much laughter lots of kissing and loving each other up.  Quite sweet.

These kiddos were sweet, and so sweet together – I hope that if I ever have a son, he is as sweet with his younger sibling(s) is this buddy was.
