One of my best friends had a baby! Again! The first time, I was there all night, but she had to have a c-section. The next time, I was supposed to support her through a VBAC; but as I got there, they were wheeling her back for a repeat cesarean. Third time’s the charm, right? She scheduled her cesarean since all doctors say no way to a VBAC at that point. And I planned to be there for photos afterwards. She ended up going into labor before the appointment and I was out of town. She called me crying with happiness, saying she had had a VBAC right there in the OR.
This fourth time, I was determined that I would see a Henderson baby born. And FINALLY it happened. I was a nasty, blubbery mess the whole time.
Even though Daddy is also a photographer, they honored me with letting me do a newborn session with Emma. What is better than hanging out with your friend and playing with a pretty, new baby?

I photographed this gorgeous family on a beautiful night with lots of bugs. Isn’t this little boy the sweetest thing ever!? He will be an amazing big brother!
And what a cute couple <3

It was so cold out that day, but this session was still a dream. These little girls were never quite happy at the same time, but I still got some delightful moments with both of them. I loved the textures and bright colors they were wearing, and mama even brought a gorgeous quilt. I am on a search for one like it for me!
A cold photo shoot is never quite comfortable, but it is also amazing because the moments you capture while kids snuggle up to their parents trying to get warm are simply magical.

I am not the smile-sensuously-at-the-camera-while-blowing-a-smoldering-kiss-to-my-man type. I also have a lady ‘stache and need to get to the salon soon. So, I decided to fishy kiss him while thinking, “come home and save me!”
He got me a remote (again) for Valentine’s Day and the kids were all about
posing running to the LCD screen every time they heard the shudder.
and the out takes– trying to get my kids to kiss me.

My daughter’s *thing* right now is crafts (sounds like “crapts”). She will go up to Nana’s room and disappear for hours. She sits and colors and glues construction paper; and sticks stickers on things.
Yesterday wasn’t quite routine since it was a weekend. But they sat and did Valentine crafts at the kitchen table.
I wish I had photographed Brian, Archie and I at Angeethi, our favorite Indian restaurant. We go every Sunday while Delilah is at church with Nana. We have started calling it Church.

Brian has been so good to me since we got married–He insists I am just using our money to buy what I want, but it is hard to think of it as mine when I did nothing to earn it. He saved up for months to get me my Nikon D700 when the D60 just wasn’t cutting it. He knew how (finally) alive inside photography made me feel and probably he knew it would end up being my career as well. This past New Years, he got a bonus for a job well done at work and he spent most of it on the iPad I had been wanting–maybe he just wanted to shut up all my hinting after all my friends got them for Christmas. But I insist it was a totally selfless act. And I am so thankful for him and his understanding of my techy cravings.
Oh yeah, he also gave me those two gorgeous kids in the picture too. <3

We live with my parents, so Delilah and Archie have a special bond with Nana and Pap Pap (My dad always wanted to be Ole Pappy.) Archie saw Nana and immediately unlatched from nursing and raised his arms to be lifted up and cuddled.
Delilah is away for the weekend right now at Brian’s parents house. She loves going there and usually cries when we meet to pick her up.

There is not much that Brian does that drives me nuts–but I suppose it is usually what he doesn’t do. It doesn’t bother him to watch TV while the house isn’t perfect. Right now, the house is kind of a pig sty and he is watching TV with Archie. I don’t wanna clean either, which is why I like going out all day–so I can’t see it. But, right now, I can see it. And he is in there watching Disney Channel.

Today’s assignment is How They Look. My son has some amazing smiles, but this is usually what he looks like when I watch him. He is going, going, going and getting into remotes or Apple products with an intense expression. Or he is contentedly fast asleep and boobie milk drunk. I love both looks–I don’t love the third look–screaming at me, with his mouth wide open and eyes full of fire! :-p
