This beautiful Momma is expecting her third boy.  It was so fun to see her boys constantly trying to swarm around her.  It was no easy task to get them to give me some time alone with her.  They wanted to hug her and hold her and be constantly all over her.  She was so tender with them.  And those boys loved each other!  This couple must be doing something right, because these boys were tight.  How fun it will be to add another to the mix.  I can see them all grown up and being best friends.  Because these little guys were so adoring of their mommy in her beautifully round state I thought it would be best to chose a picture that expressed that for this blog post.  Can’t you see it.  Don’t you want your kids to play with her kids.  They were so happy and adoring.  It made me wish I had more than one son.  Because girls worship their Daddies and Sons dote on their Mommas!

Emiliy

I felt like a hot shower and a trip to the spa after this shoot.  Poor Emily…she worked me until I just had nothing more to give.  I have never faced a newborn that bested me like this little girl.  I had been so excited to finally shoot a baby girl after a very long run of baby boys.  I had the hair pretties out, all my girly fabrics and backgrounds and then I hardly used a single one.  Little Emily cried and cried and cried.  Mom and I tried everything.  Feeding her, bouncing her, swaying, pacing, singing…everything, and then we tried it all again.  She cried from the very first picture until the very last effort.  I was so flustered.  I have never had a newborn I couldn’t sooth.  We finally decided that there wasn’t anything else we could do and that it would be best for everyone, especially Emily, if we considered rescheduling.  A week later I got an email from Mom.  Emily had been to the doctor and was diagnosed with some tummy problems that she was going to be on meds for.  Although there weren’t very many pictures on my memory card from Emily’s shoot, I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to get some decent portraits in spite of all the sadness.  Thank goodness for miracles!

Marshall

There was just something about this shoot that was special.  I couldn’t quite put my finger on it.  Then as I was browsing through the images making selections for processing, it hit me.  The special quality about Marshal’s shoot was the mood of his father.  Every shot I took of Marshal with his Dad had a sweet and wonderful air.  Dad radiated pride and affection for his little fellow.  All of my favorite pictures from this shoot were picture of Marshal with his Dad.  It made my little “mommy” heart swell to be part of this special bonding moment.

A baby is something you carry inside you for nine months, in your arms for three years and in your heart till the day you die.
— Mary Mason

I shot a fist time Mommy today.  It was so fun to watch this young couple.  They were unsure and nervous and at the same time so excited.  Dad couldn’t stop smiling!  I had so much fun.  We pulled out the fan and the ribbons and took some really great pictures.  I always knew Maternity and Newborn photography was the field for me.  It makes me happy.  I love being part of all these families little miracles.  Babies are such a wonder.  As this family begins a new phase of life I was there to document it and that is a true blessing.
