I love home births. Especially ones that happen at night. It's like magic. Or like a really big secret that selects few participators and leaves the rest to sleep. The streets are always so quiet and have an eeriness about them, but we know the secret. There's a miracle happening in the quiet dark, a baby's first cry. Ahhh, I love it. Welcome to the world, sweet baby Josh. :)
Like I promised, I'm here...paying attention to you :) I made it through the Holidays! Unfortunately, my favorite pairs of shoes didn't...
Yes, that would be Penny looking so innocent and guilt ridden in the background. Dang, she's cute. I hate that! And love it.....sigh.
How bout all that snow we got here in good ol' Texas? We LOVED playing with our nieces and nephew in the snow, some of who were seeing it for the first time! As you can see, I kinda failed at the whole snowball fight thing. So did my hair...apparently....can anyone say ware wolf?Cutest kids ever...
Dad Duckett packing his killer snowball. Love him. Oh, and I held my annual Battleship victorious title against him. Just had to throw that out there.
We had a blast rolling around in the snow until our hands hurt so bad we were crying. The puppies, however...weren't fans. After I attacked her with a snowball, they wouldn't come out of the bushes. So stinkin' cute...
Other than the favorite shoes, some nerves in our fingers and our puppies' innocence, everything else is in tact and movin' along with the new year!
I'm making the transition to full time photographer (enter cheers and party jigs here!) which means meeting with business consultants and accountants and thanking sweet baby Jesus that He didn't call me to be a business consultant or accountant. I'm very excited about the upcoming changes and you can get a better idea of what I'm talking about by reading the update on my website. Click here then go to "Investment", then "Portrait Sessions"
I am grateful now more than ever for all my fabulous clients. I have the best job in the world and its ONLY because of y'all! High five, y'all. :)
Headed to another birth (look for three more this month!). See ya soon!
I know I haven't been around much recently. I'm sure you've heard from the website and Facebook fan page that it's...well...just you. It's probably hard to see all the action being posted on the other sites while you sit here empty and ignored. I'm here to say I'm sorry. I mean, I'm not a huge fan of how your "large" photos are actually really small and how it takes forever to get them uploaded, but that's not really your fault. So...to make it up to you, I'm going to spend the next good chunk of my life uploading fifteen handfuls of photos to you. Four updates in one. Yeah, that's right. Four. So, here we go...
This couple was so precious together as they welcomed their baby boy into the world. After baby A was born, they just kept thanking each other. Made me cry. But I guess I cry at almost every birth I photograph! Whatever, you would too! :)
A few days later I returned to get my camera back on Baby A. He's so irresistible! He was pretty stubborn and wanted to be awake for the party, but after pulling some tricks out of my sleeve he gave in. This one makes me giggle every time I see it. It's like he's saying "uggh lady, are we done yet?"
I'm so excited to be with this next couple! They've welcomed me on board for the whole journey, so keep your eye out for birth and newborn photos, as well. Can't wait to meet Baby G!
This precious little girl slept like a dream for most of her session! And her family made it such a fun experience! Her momma, daddy and grandma were so willing to be extra hands and help me...and...drumroll....they made me some coffee. WINNERS!!! Love them :)
