Last year, I did bunny ears. This year… creeptastic lamb masks! These were taken in between the Easter egg hunt and the pinata (I broke it this year! ME!) at our Aunt’s house.
I did get a nice one too!

This is an excellent an idea for a special session for your own daughter.

My sister’s best friend just had her second baby–an over 9lb baby boy! He was so beautiful. He was over two weeks when he came to see me, and was so alert. He didn’t sleep a very long time, but he didn’t cry much either. He just lied there and looked into my eyes the whole time as I fell deeply in love with him. His big sister was so funny and equally as gorgeous. I had so much fun!
This was his one minute of crying time, and he even looked handsome during that minute!

Taking photos of children that have had a big camera in their face since birth can be a struggle. I set aside the entire week before birthdays for portrait attempts because I know I will only get 5 minutes each time I dress her up. I took these over 3 days–there was much tears and begging and pleading and bribes involved.
And now I have to worry about Christmas portraits! The almost-two year old is even harder to bribe!

I love newborn yawn faces. I think the way a baby yawns gives you a glimpse into their teenage years .

I have been aching to do some portraits like these for awhile. There is nothing more beautiful than a mother cherishing her new baby skin to skin.
This post contains implied nudity– please click away if artistic nudes offend you.
I am excited to try portraits like these with an older nursling.

I hate mailing packages. I end up shooting rolls upon rolls of film before I get around to sending it to the lab. Developed and scanned film delivery days are like Christmas around here. There are usually months of memories in that box. The problem is when I do these blog posts I have to severely edit myself and what I share. Yes, this is severely edited!
We went apple picking last month.
We went raspberry picking and to the botanical gardens earlier this summer.
And we also went to Busch Gardens for Howl-O-Scream last month.
Then, we had a nap.

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?
