Me and Sharlene had talked a bit about doing some family photos for her in the summer. Well summer came and went and we never got around to actually scheduling them.;) So last Saturday we headed down to the Columbia riverfront to snap a few beachy photos. Well in case you aren't in the the know (as I was not) the riverfront is extremely cold and intensely windy in November. We attempted photos for about five minutes, while my baby screamed his complaints about the cold from the ergo, my fingers lost all dexterity, and the girls faces were completely covered in blowing hair. It was quickly decided we were giving up and heading over to Esther Short Park instead. I did manage to get a great family photo at the river which is totally a miracle. The blues and grays in that photo will go perfect in her pretty, airy house. But I am so very happy with these golden fall-ish photos at the park as well.
Jens is graduating this year and is a fire cadet. We started his photo shoot out at the fire station and then headed over to his grandparents house. I had so much fun on my first photo shoot off of maternity leave, it feels great to be behind the camera again. I have been lucking out with all this awesome fall sunshine to! Perfect for photos.
Hard to believe this little guy is already six weeks old. It feels like the last few weeks passed by me in about two seconds. Our little man is growing fast, cooing and smiling at us (he especially likes his sister Sylvie), he loves being held, snuggling and most of all eating. He dislikes his car seat, not being held, and he absolutely HATES bath time. Life with four young kids is ummm a little bit of chaos, a lot of snuggling, holding babies,and changing diapers, very little sleep and a whole lot of noise.
I wouldn't trade this crazy life for anything.
An attempt at a photo shoot at a week old yielded this ^ one photo. Glad I at least tried. The rest of the photos in this post were taken at about four weeks.
Talk about good timing. I shot these photos of my sister in laws family the day before I went into labor with our newest little buddy Keegan (Who is beyond cute btw! I've been planning everyday to take his newborn photos but my two year old has other plans that definitely do not involve letting mom take pictures) I'll be taking some time off for the next few weeks (right in the middle of busy season for family photos!) so I'm glad I got to these photos just in time. Such a cute and classy looking family hey?
This sweet princess is my newest niece Jade. She is such a blessing to all of us and is so, so loved. She is a preemie and was the sweetest little curl up in a ball, soft and squishy, perfect little poser, a photographer could ask for. She even gave me a few smiles every time I told her how pretty she looked!
Oh my little Harper I think I love you! This little guy is way beyond his years (or weeks I guess). A serious little fellow who you can just see has important stuff to say as he stares so intently into your eyes. SO cute it hurts! I have four weeks left til I can meet my little guy and doing Harper's photos got me more than a little impatient.:) Congratulations Cole and Telina you are both doing a great job at this parenting thing.
