Josie Kate, 6 months. And “lemons”, part deux…

I can’t believe how fast little Josie Kate has grown! It really does seem like yesterday when I took her pictures in the hospital after she was born.  What a beautiful girl she is, just like her Mom. One of my favorite things about doing Baby’s First Year packages is that I really get to know the family, and the kids become comfortable with me so much faster every time I visit.

Josie’s mom was worried we wouldn’t get many smiles, but she was proved wrong since pretty much all Josie did was give me huge smiles. It’s hard to cull images down when they are all so good.

Look how much Josie has grown!

When Josie was 3 months old, we took pictures of her lying in a big bowl full of lemons which was on the dining room table.  I like that Josie’s mom lets me do anything, no matter how strange it may seem at the time.  The picture turned out to be SO cute though… here it is, from 3 months ago:

Now Josie and Jacob love to play with the bowl of lemons every day.

But even a day of smiles has to end sometime. Eventually Josie had enough of the paparazzi:

Next time I see this sweet little girl she’ll be trying to walk. Wow.

Baby Jack

Of all the newborns I have photographed, baby Jack was most certainly the sleepiest, and most definitely one of the cutest!  He was just wonderful, and slept almost the entire session, which allowed us to place him anywhere we needed.  It is so hard for me to stop taking pictures when they are this adorable, and I took way too many pictures at this session. 

Jack’s wonderful parents simply adore him, and they are so lucky to have him in their lives.  There is nothing sweeter than a newborn baby.

Harley Madison

Welcome to the beautiful world of little 4-month-old Harley Madison.  She was so sweet and loving, and was hardly fussy at all (that last outfit change was almost too much for her!)

Harley’s parents are so lucky to have her, and she is most definitely the princess in their lives.  I can’t wait to see her again in a few months, when she’ll be pulling up on the furniture already!

Little Patrick

I had so much fun taking fun of Little Pat, less than two weeks new.  I could not believe how tiny he was!  Just so sweet and small and, well, adorable.  Little Pat was definitely happier all swaddled up (his dad is the household swaddling expert and had it down to a science!).  Then again, I’m happier all bundled up myself so I can hardly blame the sweet baby for fussing when mean Miss Carrie made his mom take every stitch of clothing off of him.  Luckily he adapted quickly and we got some amazing newborn shots.

This session really lent itself to black and white images, so there are a slew of those, although there are some color ones too.

Little Pat has lots of heirloom items from his dad, and I really enjoyed incorporating those into some of the shots.  The rattle Little Pat is holding belonged to his dad. 

Again I must say that I have the best job in the world.  I get to hold newborn babies and be a part of the wonder of childhood, the joy (and stress!) of parenthood, and the exuberant spirit of closeknit family life. 

You’ll see Little Pat again in a few months and I’m sure none of us will believe how big he will have grown.

Baby Graham

Baby Graham was so adorable for this session! He was by turns: alert, happy, fussy, sleepy, hungry, pensive, restful, more fussy, and finally just desperate for the lady with the camera to leave him in peace! In other words, he was just like almost every other newborn I photograph. I love photographing newborns because of the wide range of emotions they go through, and because I never know what to expect, which is part of why I love my job! Graham was really tolerant though, and allowed me to get some difficult shots I don’t always get.

Graham’s nursery is absolutely the sweetest baby boy nursery I have ever seen. His mom denied being a decorator but I am not convinced… every little detail of his “seaside” room has been so lovingly attended to.  And little Graham is also lovingly attended to by his two sweet parents, who know him so well even though he is only one month old. It almost makes my heart ache for them, remembering how small my own children used to be, and knowing that Graham will grow up faster than they could ever imagine.  But then again, I also remember when my children were newborns and the time seemed to go so slowly. What is the saying? The days are long but the years are short… 

I know that Graham’s parents are savoring every long day with their precious little one, for I am sure he is the greatest gift they have ever been given.
