Because all women, pregnant or not, should enjoy a decadent waffle from time to time. :)
These are just a few snapshots of the shower we (myself, my mom, and my fabulous friend Amy) threw my sister to celebrate and prep for the little man who is due TOMORROW!!! I am anxiously awaiting his arrival and blogging about his shower is my distraction of choice. Unfortunately, it sometimes happens that after you throw together the decor for a shower at the last minute, the guests arrive as you’re still setting things out and you have about twenty seconds to snap pictures before you let everyone dig into the food. That happened here. Oh well.
Invites by yours truly…
The baby blocks were painted by my talented mother, and the wooden forks are from Sucre Shop – very cute, obviously.
I did actually put punch in the beverage server…just not before I photographed it. Heh – oops!
The print is by Lindsay Letters and is awesome. It went home to the little one’s nursery after the shower. Decor that doubles as a gift? Yes, please. :)
This is my sister. And her little one.
And her fantastic husband.
Molly, you’re beautiful. You’re a mom! And in just a few short days you’ll finally meet my handsome little nephew and we’re going to celebrate like crazy. Thanks for asking me to take these pictures. They made me nervous, but they were very worth it. I hope they are a blessing – and a reminder of the beautiful gift you’ve been given. A sign of God’s generosity and love for you – from the giver of all good things.
What to say about this sweet family? All I can think is it was so special to photograph them as they are right now, with their beautiful daughter Eva, when I’ve known them for almost 10 years now! I’m so tempted to preface this shoot with somewhat embarrassing pictures of them, myself, and several other familiar faces on this blog on a summer mission trip we took together to East Asia, but I’ll refrain for their sake and mine. If you’re that curious, you can stalk my 2006 Facebook albums. :)
Eva. Obviously adorable, full of sunshine, and determined to stick that tongue out in every pose she struck.
Adorable. And completely unprompted, by the way.
Dexters, thank you for such an inspiring and delightful afternoon. And for not laughing at me in my awkward, pregnant, photographer stances!!! Love you guys.
If you’ve read this blog for awhile or followed my photography, you know I am in love with clients I get to photograph twice…or more! I met Sam when he was just six months and content to stare straight at my lens and make adorable faces for a few hours. Then I got to snap some more shots of him as he turned one, and now I’m in total disbelief that this guy is coming up on his second birthday – and he’s much quicker on his feet now. I could barely keep up!
He is still so sweet though. This whole little family is kind of just the best. :)
My new favorite picture!
Thanks Zeljka, Chris & Sam!
One of my favorite families has a new addition. Anthony David Smith is here and he is awesome. Big brother Gregg has graced this blog with his cute face over the past year or so and I love looking back over several photo shoots with this family and seeing how they’ve grown. Congratulations, Will & Amy. Your family is such a gift.
Hey! It’s been a month. Wow. Isn’t that just how it goes sometimes? We have had so much going on. Namely, our bathroom remodel project is underway and actually almost done! What we naively hoped would be a 3 week project, 4 max, is turning out to be about a 7 week ordeal. Gross. As a result, no blogging, no doing much of anything BUT working on the bathroom, no sleeping without dreaming about putting up the tile wrong. *Sigh* We’re so close though now I can smell it. Not the bathroom…the end of the project. Hehe. Here are a few tantalizing progress shots.
I got a new phone with a much better camera which is great because I have all these quick photos and not-so-great because I really am lazy about getting out my DSLR at home now. Anyway, in other news, I’m still growing a baby, which is the weirdest experience of my life to date. She is a girl(!), a mighty kicker, and I think she’s cool with spicy food. These are the very few things I know so far about my daughter – I can’t wait to know her more. Oh and also she is going to have a brand new bathroom to grow up using. Awww.
I’m sure these don’t really show it, but this little miss is so tiny! Photographing her at two weeks was a such a sweet way to pass a Saturday afternoon. Campbell was born to two great friends of mine from college and she is just pure sweetness wrapped up in a little pink blanket.
Big brother, Asher (who only sort of wanted to be in a few pictures).
Campbell, you are so very precious. Thanks Brittany, for a great couple of hours with you and your sweet girl!
