In case you aren’t much of a Facebook -er, or you haven’t made yourself a fan of my page there (and if so, why on earth not?! I’d love to have ya:), and you have been wondering where I have been, I’ve been busy in the office and the gear took a break and a little trip to the “spa”. But it arrived home this week in tip top shape just in time for my newborn marathon week! Well, actually, the gear didn’t arrive at home. I actually had to chase down a UPS truck in downtown Columbia on Monday morning to get my gear for my Monday shoot…….but that is another crazy story:)

So far this week I have photographed a lovely mommy-to-be and 3 newborns! I can’t show the images of mommy-to-be because they are a sweet surprise for daddy-to-be. I wish I could. She was just lovely and I really enjoyed working with her. I’m looking forward to visiting her again for her newborn session.

So, next up………the most precious, smiley little boy! I seriously think I have like 4 or 5 great big undeniable smiles in various poses from this day:) See the little bear picture below for one of them. Mom and Dad did such a great job too and were just delightful! And as our session ran late – as newborn lifestyle photo sessions do sometimes – they even bought me lunch from Devine Foods! How sweet is that!?!? And it was wonderful and, can you believe, my first time to eat their food?! I loved it. And I loved working on some of these images tonight!

Mom and Dad, tell your friends and family members to check out the images and leave a little love on your blog post. If you get 35 comments from unique visitors (with their email address), you can choose your favorite image for a 5×7 print on me! If you get 50 comments, it’s an 8×10!! Enjoy:)

Just a note to say thank you again for such a wonderful year. I am booked and will be unbelievably busy for the next 2 months. I have already taken a few bookings for January but will only be taking 2 more because I believe I will be in desperate need of a little break! So, if you are interested in a session in January, please don’t hesitate to book.

And now back to our regularly scheduled programming:)

This beautiful family welcomed me into their new home, where they had just moved days earlier from another state, to photograph their new baby boy. Mom didn’t even have time to nest the new nursery. She went straight from the hospital to this new cozy bungalow. And she had to depend on daddy and grandma to take care of the nursery details for our images. They did a great job! The home was beautiful, the family was warm and kind, and the baby boy was Beautiful!! I can’t wait to share the rest of the images with this family:)

And welcome to Columbia! I hope you will be very happy here. And to baby boy: Welcome to the world!

So here is a question for you…….what photographer do you know that starts a family photography session with a trip to the local ice cream parlor?!! Seriously, am I one brave woman or what? But it seemed like it would be a lot of fun and a great way to break the ice with this family, who booked their photo session with me last year! I was so excited to meet them because they had been on the books for so long.

The field we used this day looked just amazing. The little yellow flowering weeds and tall grasses were a perfect backdrop. And as the session was nearing the end, some fabulous stormy clouds rolled in, giving the sky a beautiful rich color. These are my favorite clouds to capture and can add such drama to a portrait. And they did!

Dear family….you rocked! I really enjoyed working with you and hope you enjoyed yourselves too……even my corny jokes and rather awkward dance moves:) Mom and Dad, tell your friends and family members to check out the images and leave a little love on your blog post.
