February 28, 2013 Baby V

Yep, more baby cuddling to speak of!

This time… it’s a BOY!

Baby V is an adorable squishy little man who looooooooooves to eat!

To be fair, I think most newbies love to eat, as their’s not much else for them to do… eat sleep and poop, that’s about it!

(yep, i just said ‘poop’….)

Baby V made sure that two of those things were getting done during our session….and sleeping wasn’t one of them!

Just look at him! I imagined him thinking “who the heck is she, and what was going on? I don’t care how tired I am…. these eyes are not closing until  all this foolishness is done!”

That’s ok, I have a favorite about photographing a wide awake newbie… Watching those eyes search and scan and gaze idly, all over the room, and then capturing that split second moment when they finally focus on me & my lens and seem to be in awe.  Love!

Quite the determined little man, awake he stayed…despite getting sleepier and sleepier and eating between nearly every scene change!

I almost had him, laying all cozy on my soft, fuzzy blanket… but the excitement of wearing Dad’s tie must have kept him going!

Of course, the minute our session was over, that boy was snoozin!

It’s always an adventure with newborns, and despite their lack of language skills, they always call the shots during our photo sessions! That’s exactly what makes each and every session different, and why I love it!

I can’t wait to watch this little man grow into his already bursting personality!

So here’s what else I’ve been up to in 2013…

Snugglin with newbies!!

Anyone who even kind of knows me, knows that I’ve got quite the soft spot for babies…. (haha, soft spot!) SO, how ecstatic am I that everyone around me seems to be having them lately!?! Not only do I get to snuggle, hold and admire them, speaking soft, smiley, high pitched nonsense… but I’ve been able to get my camera on them to catch these precious, fleeting moments of their lives for their parents…. and once they cry or get a full diaper, I get to give them right back!

Sweet Baby J would have been happy to cuddle and snuggle with me all day long, no problem – well, unless it was feeding time, then I better lactate or get out of the way for someone who does! Putting her down for pictures, however, she definitely put me on more of a timer! She’d stare at my lens for a while, (likely wondering if maybe that would lactate) giving me soft sweet looks and hints of smiles, and then she’d give me a little pout and bat those lashes when she was done and it was time for me to move on.

Luckily, I had no problem following that routine, and we were an efficient little team!

Besides…. she’s got an adorably convincing face! 

I’m so glad to be able to be even a small part of her journey, watching & documenting her growth & beauty through the coming years!

February 25, 2013 What’s going on?!

Well helloooooo!

Have you missed me? I’ve certainly missed hearing from all of you!! I’ve been super neglectful in my postings and blogging this year…not the best way to start out the year, I know! Howeeeeeever, I do have good reason!!


I really tried to use January as a catch-up and catch my breath month.  Catch up on editing, on Albums, on housework! Plenty of time after that, right? Wrong! Then came the storms. The power outages, school closings, school delays… ALL no good for anyone! I hope you all fared well, and weren’t without power for too long! We invited the in-law’s over and all hunkered down by the wood stove. We even cooked some pretty delicious meals on it too! It was kind of fun… for a little while anyway. Let’s just say we were a little ecstatic when NStar came & saved the day! It’s the little things, like a bathroom light, that really make my day I guess. ;) It doesn’t end there though…. Then there’s February vacation! That just basically piggy backed onto the school closings and delays, and for a while there everything just felt like groundhog day! We did manage to get some fun time in with the kids, go sledding, have a couple of sleep overs, and even get a little cleaning done, so don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t terrible… just not ideal for a work from home momma. I can’t say that I’m not loooooooving this quiet time I have right now though! (time that I just noticed is quickly coming to an end! Whyyyyyy?!)

I also managed to fit in a few photo sessions within all that chaos, that you have yet to see a peek of! I think they deserve a blog post of their own though, so I’ll have to keep you in suspense for just a bit longer! Sorry!


Ok, last but not least on my list of ‘reasons for neglecting you through my lack of social media use’…..

You ready for it? Can i get a drumroll or something?

I’m working on my studio!! Yep, you heard read it right!  Between the catching up and the storms, and school vacations, we’ve moved my entire office and equipment to the new space! I’ve managed to claim the perfect area in my house, and though it needs some  finish work, and some major organizing & redecorating, at some point this year, it should be up and running!! I’m very excited & can’t wait to announce my first availability for an in-studio session! Eeek!!


Now let me know what’s up with you! Fill me in! What have you been up to! Any good storm stories? Let’s catch up!
