I want to offer a moment of silence to the blish family for losing their son this week. I feel that I should say something grande at this point in time.I don;t have any words that describe what I am felling right now. I feel sorry for taner and his friends for feeling like they could have done something. but they could not. I wish I could say if you could you should.but would you? what would you do in t his time of need. I want to raise awareness to the families all in need at this time from losing a child. I think today is a good day to appreciate my family and I want to share my niece and nephew with you and hope you can all appreciate the great miracle of children. I have friends that have lost a child due to many things and I want to send a special prayer out to a dear friend of mine that has recently lost hers and even though it was in the making, a child is a child from the moment it was conceived. so please love on your babies for me today as i will try and make sure that I will love on mine. every minute that I possibly can.happy weekend!!
still going through some old stuff and really looking at all the bebes that are coming into this world. I can not believe the baby boom that we have had over the last year. if you are going to photograph your new baby, I would suggest a few things...first of all, I would photograph the baby in the first week after it is born. so if you are preggo I would call way ahead of time to get that arranged. I would call at the very latest 7 months into your pregnancy. that way you have that date planned and out of the way. we typically book for babies to be born around their due date and then we can re-arrange the timeframe when the baby is born. I would not worry about anything that has to do with the timing, we schedule out the full day so we can have time for feedings, change of diapers and get the baby back to sleep. it generally takes about three hours to photograph that baby. sometimes more, sometimes less. it takes a lot to photograph the baby within the first days. but it is so worth it to get it by the 3rd to 5th day and when it is not too alert and we can do whatever we want as the baby is ready to be photographed to how we want it to be photographed. It is such a special time that we do not want to miss out on the smallest of details and the little yawns or the stretches or even just a precious sleeping baby being peaceful. it is such a amzing time in that child's life, that it is very important to get that scheduled before you miss out on this time. I am simply amazed right now at all the calls I get to photograph new babies. I have seem a baby boom in the last year but not like ever before. every time I turn around when I am out,someone is pregnant. I have several friends either getting married or having babies at this time. I am lucky for that as I will not be having anymore of that in my own life. I get to enjoy simply every other friends happiness at this time. what I great job I have to get to see all the love spread around here.well, enough of my sappy words. enjoy your sunday!
here are some great images from downtown. I love some of these places I go and especially the sculpture garden. I love the big face with the letters and numbers. what a great place to share images with you. these are some of my good friends kids. they are so darn cute which makes my job so darn hard anymore with trying to edit them down. I get er done,but wow! it is hard. hopefully you will get to see more of these wonderful spots if the weather holds up this year. I think I could get used to the idea of 80 degree weather around here.enjoy!~
so I had the chance to be with scout one day and wanted to try out a new spot. even though we were bit up terribly, I love this spot. I hope to take more kids to it. but we will be wearing bug spray for sure. I hope you had a happy and safe fourth. it was not too fun to have the fireworks rescheduled,but we had some fun with family in town from colorado and we had a blast with them. so enjoy some of my scoutie pics and hopefully you can explore this place too with me..oh by the way, as you can see my boys received the buzz summer cut. as you will see soon, as I photograph them the other three got the same do and I am so happy that they have it, but I miss the long hair I had going on with all the boys. so, even though they are my boys and I love them no matter what. they look quite different and I am still getting used to it...
as I am going through old photos that I have kept, I came across this one. it was a very sad day for princess a. I find that as I grown with this business, I change many things about my photographs and find there is a new way of photographing. I change for the better, but it is so neat to watch the growth and what my eyes saw at that moment. a moment in time for many of you to never get back. or for me also. they change so quickly and I do not believe it much till I watch my kids grow and they get so big and so smart that I forget what it was like to be a mother of 4 boys. I try and try to remember what each of them have that is unique and keep it in my heart. I read letters I have written my children long ago and realize I knew who they would be at a young age. they truly show that! amazing isn't it!? what do you want to remember? I need a break from work now, so happy fourth of july! have a safe one~!
