Being asked by past couples to document their newest milestones in life is such a humbling moment. Just a couple months ago one of my sweet 2011 brides, Mallory, shared news that they had a new family addition I needed to photograph for them...I remember being at my desk thinking - Oh yay! They're pregnant! She needs maternity and new born photo bookings! - That message was shortly followed up by a photo of their oh-so-cute puppy...at only 7 weeks old. I knew there was a reason I loved Mallory and Chilly so much :)
I know I am little pup crazy, but I love these next two photos of the three of them..Congratulations on y'alls new furry child ;)
Some of y'all already got a sneak peek of this adorable little man on my facebook page...For those that didn't, please meet Harrison Hayes. Like all little ones, he has the most adorable fingers and toes. He is perfectly healthy and looks just like his daddy.
It's hard to believe it will be February this week. There is lots I will be doing this month - one of which will be blogging more...lots more. Of course blogging my shoots, about wedding goodies, but what I am most excited about blogging is FOOD. I love to eat...so it's a good thing I love to cook! Disclaimer :: I am no Julia Child and I am not whipping up these recipes off the top of my head - but I sure do to enjoy finding a delish recipe, modifying it to our liking and calling myself a master chef ;)
So get ready, my first food post will be this Friday! Now I am pleased to introduce little man Harrison...
Leo is one of Katie and John's sweet pups. He is already so protective of little brother, Harrison. Wherever Harrison goes...Leo follows. No doubt they will grow up best buds. Not photographed are Harrison's other furry siblings :: 2 pups and 2 cats :)
I feel very lucky and thankful that in 2011 so many families opened their homes up and invited me in to capture some of the most precious moments a family shares. I must say photographing, holding and playing with so many newborns and children is fun, refreshing and really puts life into perspective. As I have said a number time before, they truly are life's everyday miracle. I absolutely loved this session with 4 day old baby Ellie.I am such a dog lover, so it is no surprise I was thrilled to have Lily join in for a few family photos.
I met baby Ellie just after Thanksgiving so it was perfect timing to do a Christmas card + birth announcement in one...Is this not the cutest little Rudolf ever?Congratulations to the Dutta family on welcoming sweet Baby Ellie into this world!
