Miss Maisie...

Sometimes I tell myself, "My, what bad luck I'm having with babies!"
But then I have to step back and realize that although there are dream babies, most infants don't enjoy being poked and prodded. I'm lucky to get anything. Ever.

I just feel blessed to be able to get to hold so many new bundles. Even if I get pooped on...oh, lets see...pretty much every newborn session I do.

But see, Maisie was a lady. She only peed on me.

It was all worth it of course.

B's mom called me when he was already a week or two old... We had one scheduling conflict after another, and before you know it, he's a month in this world...

Ah well... it happens!

Good thing the kid can't take a bad photo. Check out those lips!

He REALLY didn't want to go to sleep. We tried. And Tried. and TRIED!
But...he's the sort of guy who just wasn't havin' it. Lucky for me I got to chat with his mom, grandma and great grandma.

And yup, there's the stump again. But I got a BUNCH of new stuff and I have a new baby girl (only 6 days old) on Wednesday...So stay tuned!

All in all...what a cute kid. Truly.

Peter's Party: A special guy...

I never had the joy of meeting Peter. But I do know that it's very apparent that there were a whole lot of people in his short life who loved him very, very much. I took so many photos on this wonderful day in honor of him, that it was hard to pick something to blog about...

All the kids seemed really into the face paint, done by a wonderful clown who had the kids in a near-hypnotized state for a couple hours. I thought, if Peter would have been around for the party, this might have been his favorite part. This, and maybe Curious George who made a guest appearance. But that's a whole new blog post :)

S & D: Professionally trained hams

I LOVE these kids. Can you imagine, a 2 1/2 year old who takes direction from a photographer?
Most of the time, I feel lucky to even catch a brief moment of eye contact with a toddler, but not these fantastic little models....

Other than Princess Sophia's dislike of dirt, grass, bugs and walking, it was a great session!

Thanks for being good sports, guys :)

sneak peek: sweet baby Kaia

I've decided that 8 month olds are my new favorite age....They're still cuddly, and yet...they can't run away. A bit different than the snoozing lumps of newborn and crazy 3 year olds I've been shooting lately.

I only wish that the lovely followers of my blog could hear Kaia's daddy singing "Tutti-Frutti" at the top of his lungs for all these photos that she's smiling in... I must admit his heartfelt laugh is pretty hard not to like.

Beautiful family. Thanks again guys. I'll be seeing you soon ;)

Chris & Teddy

This is hard for me. I've been hoarding these photos, viewing them over and over the last few days.

And now that I have a blog, I have no more excuses not to share them with all the wonderful people who came together to celebrate Chris and Teddy's tying the knot at the windy Oregon coast last weekend.

I guess I worried that there was no way I could possibly capture the depth of feeling we all felt.

Photos of the actual ceremony soon to follow.

Giving one's mother away is enough to make anyone need some bubbly.

The End.

No, not really.

Chris and Teddy and EVERYONE who came...
Thank you for letting me be a part.
