In the past few months, we had several friends that had babies and I got the pleasure of driving all over to capture their adorable-ness :) Hope you enjoy!
So, I’m a bit behind on blogging. Meet Liam.
He was 4 months old in these photos, and now he’s almost 1!
He is such a cutie and gave me so many great smiles during our session.
Meet our precious baby girl, Naomi Claire…
She arrived exactly 1 month ago today by c-section and was 9 lbs 11 oz and 21.25 inches long!
As I’m sure you can understand, life has been a whirlwind since, hence the lack of blogging on my part. From c-section recovery to learning to breast feed (no, it’s not as natural as one might think!) to not getting more than 2 hours of sleep at a time, I have been trying to get the hang of this thing called motherhood. But, oh how much we are in love with this incredible gift from God! She is such a sweet and beautiful baby and I feel so much joy knowing I get to be her mother.
Here are some fun things she is doing:
-Always has to have her hands touching her face (even while she was in utero she did this!)
-LOVES to be held
-Makes really good eye contact
-Likes to be swaddled to sleep in her crib
-Gives the sweetest smiles :)
-Loves to fall asleep on Daddy’s chest
-Really likes bath time and the warm water
-Has great awake time after her mid-morning feeding
-Sleeps pretty good at night
-Gets fussy right before a feeding since we have to wake her up for them most of the time
-Could sleep all night if I let her
-Loves her car seat and falls asleep pretty much once she’s strapped in
-I just discovered that caffeine=BIG NO NO! I haven’t had any really since having her except for yesterday when I had a couple Dr. Peppers. She was fussy all night and all day so far today :( But this is not normal for her.
-Loves mommy and daddy’s kisses and even opens her mouth to kiss us back! :) I know, she’s probably just rooting, but I like to think she is trying to give us kisses :)
-Falls asleep eating most of the time and I have to almost constantly stimulate her with a cold, wet rag
Naomi is pretty much awesome ;) And I of course could not wait to get my camera on her!
Loooove those kissable cheeks of hers!
Stay tuned for the birth story, a few weddings and an engagement session I’ve yet to blog!
Isn’t she beautiful?? Daddy is in the military, so he brought an American flag to use in the shoot. I love how it turned out in this photo!
It took us a while to get her to fall asleep so we could get these last few shots, but it was so worth it! She is just precious!
Loved these last 2 where we incorporated Momma’s saddle and a cute diaper cover made just for her…
Remember this little guy? Well, he’s already 6 months old and making another appearance on the blog. Actually, as I type this he’s 8 months old and I am still just a little behind on blogging…but that’s neither here nor there :) Anyway, my good friend Jamie wanted some new photos of her sweet little man and I couldn’t have been happier to take them. Jackson is such a sweet baby, always smiling, cooing and calm. Makes me really hope our little bundle of joy will be the same way when she enters this world come August/September. Here are some of my favorites…
Look at that laugh and him eating his toes! Too precious!
“Hmm my toes are tasty. I think I’ll have another bite!”
