I had the pleasure of meeting the Chase family a couple of years ago when their second daughter was born, so I was very excited to get the call that the second son was welcomed into the family. This family is so full of love, and each of the kids have such unique, strong characters. Little Mr. C was no exception, wanting to be awake for a lot of his session, in case he missed some of the action. We did manage to cuddle him into a deep sleep, though, and he was a dream to shoot.
Oldest son, another Mr. C, was so in love with his new brother that he wanted some solo shots with his new sibling, and I could tell from his cuddles and snuggles, that the newest son is going to have a friend for life.
Enjoy your teasers!
Another Baby’s First Year candidate, and Mr. A was a superstar! He had so many great outfits to wear (but also loved baring it all). Seeing him now, I wouldn’t have believed that he was a preemie to start… he’s all boy-chunk these days! I can’t wait to see him when he turns one, to capture his emerging character.
I don’t think I mention enough how much I love doing Baby’s First Year sessions… I got to meet this sweet little girl 6 months ago for her newborn session, and now she’s a totally new person– so full of character and curiosity. We had so much fun capturing this stage in her life, and I look forward to capturing her first birthday as well.
Even though it’s Mother’s Day, I feel blessed every day that I have two amazing sons who are such characters, and who make me laugh on a daily basis. They are helping to mold me into a better person, and I can’t imagine my life without them.
Here’s a shout out to all the great moms out there. To the ones that are just starting out, learning the nuances of what each little sound means; and who maybe sometimes feel like they have no idea what they are doing. To the ones who have loved and lost a child… the heartbreak is unimaginable to me, but I wish you all the strength in the world to not give up. To each and every mom, I say to you “Do your best, and you will be great.” That’s all that these little people who look up to us ask for… our best we can be on each given day. Sometimes your best might just be that you got them dressed and fed… there shouldn’t be any judging as long as you do your best.
Here’s to each and every one of you that is a mom, or love a mom…. enjoy your day!
The day I had this family into my studio was so great. They already had a precious daughter, Miss S, (who throughout the shoot was offering me pretend cake slices from the playroom downstairs — so cute!) and now had welcomed into the world. Master K. He slept like a champ, and has the best lips around!
Enjoy your little man, and your teasers!
