welcome to the world…

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

I’ve been trying to write this post for some time now. I have to say it has been hard to figure out what to write for such a momentous occasion. The birth of a baby. A new life entering the world. Although I’ve had 4 children myself watching someone else go through it gives me a whole new respect for what women go through. I felt a bit in a haze after all my births, ones with meds and without. It seemed the world was moving at normal speed around me while my mind worked in slow motion. Somehow I felt more present at a birth I was photographing than at my own. So many, many congrats to Darbi & Neil who had the most amazing perfect little guy. We love him so much already and I know he is going to be big buddies with Sammy & Tommy in years to come. Enjoy some pics below but please dont miss the slideshow that tells the story of the entire day.

from a family session with Heather, Larsen & their Little Lady.  You may remember Heather & Larsen from their engagement session and their fabulous wedding, Part I & Part II.  During their engagement session we took a photo on these very steps.  Then they had just purchased their new home and had not even moved in yet.  So I thought this was an appropriate one little pic.  It was so fun to go back and see how their lives have changed and their family has grown.  More coming soon! (and ps - Heather has the most fabulous blog, check it out – http://prissandvinegar.com/)

Kelley & Sully at the pumpkin patch…

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

I had a blast shooting one of my best friends Kelley and her little man Sully at my favorite pumpkin patch, the Weston Red Barn Farm.  And although it was in the morning, fall light is so nice. I have to admit, since having little ones of my own again I have a renewed interest in shooting families and especially mommies and babies.  It is so much fun.  I recently did a day in the life with Sully, mommy AND daddy. I was there for 13 hours, before they got out of bed until Sully  crashed.  Be sure and come back to see that soon :) And a rare but really awesome photo Kelley managed to capture of me and the boys. Yes, I’m slowly but surely getting over my fear of the camera. Mostly for the sake of my children. Thank you Kelley! Love ya!

are having a baby, or else Darbi swallowed a basketball!  How cute is she? I think Darbi is the model for what all pregnant women want to look like – no butt spread, no fat face, no swollen feet.  Oh well, a gal can dream. Anyway I am so thrilled to be sharing these photos from Darbi and Neil’s session.  Not only is Darbi a good friend but also a wonderful photographer and it’s always a special honor to shoot for other professionals.  I am also BEYOND thrilled that I will be shooting little baby XXX’s birth in January.  What a great story that will be to share.  Congrats you two.  I cannot wait to meet triple X!

better late than never…

only 6 months after the fact, but here are the pics from our father’s day session.  I was racking my brain trying to figure out what to get the husband for his very first father’s day while driving home from a wedding, yes the night before.  When it hit me…an early morning session in bed with the  babies. A great big thank you to Janelle Vano for doing these so last minute. I hope to do them every year until it gets us on awkward family photos! Come back in July and I might have some Christmas photos up.
