Baby Jack

Tuesday, November 29, 2011

I am so excited to share this post with you all! This little fella is one of the cutest little baby boys ever! It also helps that his parents are pretty cool too! Carla and I had to reschedule this session so many times that a newborn session quickly turned into a one month session...but hey, the baby totally dictates the session, and this little guy just wasn't ready for his close up. But man oh man, it was totally worth the wait!

Jack had been battling some belly problems but his mom and dad knew exactly what to do to calm him down. It was so amazing to see a couple work in such tandem to help soothe their child. Case and point shown below! 


This little guy is also a mover and a shaker...when we stopped moving he would start to wake up...so his dad turned on some awesome music and it calmed him right down! 


 Love these pictures of Tony and Jack! 


I definitely didn't plan on these photos turning out so similar, but I am in love with them. I could definitely see these in a double picture frame. :)



And lastly, these were literally the last three pictures on my camera for that session. Like I said earlier, sometimes the "subject" totally dictates the session. Jack was letting me know that he was done...but I got some funny pictures in the mean time! :)

Carla and Tony, I absolutely cannot wait to see Jack again! I am loving all of the UT gear he is sporting on Facebook! :)

Thankful

Thanksgiving is my all-time favorite holiday! So many people always ask "Why? Isn't Christmas your favorite?" Don't get me wrong, Christmas rocks, but Thanksgiving was always the time of year where I got to see my entire family! I didn't grow up with my grandparents right down the street from me where we saw them every Sunday like so many of my friends did. My grandparents lived 6 hours away! So going up to Covington, VA to see them was a huge deal! It didn't matter if I spent Thanksgiving with my Gammy and Pawpaw and the whole Dressler side of the family, or if we went and had a delicious meal with my Meemaw and Papaw and the Folks family; we got to spend time together. To me, that is the essence of Thanksgiving. Spending the day with the people you love the most. There are no expectations (except that the ham better be a Virginia spiral and not honey baked), but just hanging out with my amazing cousins, my hilarious and usually always crazy aunts, hearing the best stories and having stimulating conversations with my aunt and uncle...these are the memories that have literally consumed my childhood and now adulthood. 

So now that I'm done being mushy, here are some special reasons why I am so thankful this year. 2011 has been a pretty fantastic year; not just for me personally, but also in pursuing my dream of becoming a photographer. So I am going to leave you with a couple of pictures from each of my sessions this year. Whether it was completely smitten couples, big bellies, crying babies or the big day, I have grown to love all of my clients. You all are so incredibly special to me! I'm thankful for each and every one of you!


































Happy Thanksgiving!!

Haley

It has taken me WAY too long to do this session! But with fall coming and going, things have been crazy and blogging has had (sadly) to take a back burner. But no longer! Yay!! 

Meet Haley and her beautiful momma Melissa! I have known Haley since she was born...she just so happens to be my bestest beyond bestest friend's adorable niece! I have always called Haley "Mogley" because she reminds me so much of the character from The Jungle Book, weird, I know! :) But I love her immensely! When Melissa told me that she had wanted to have some pictures done of Haley (and maybe a couple with her) I was so excited!!! Haley has such an awesome personality that I knew it would be nothing but loads of fun! Well, little miss thing thought she would put on her shy face to start. Well, that ended quickly once we found this awesome baby weeping willow and I had her "find" me! :) So much fun!!!

Haley told me that she wanted to take pictures with her mom! So I was totally game! Ummm, they literally are identical...even their personalities. It makes me giggle just to think about it! I had Melissa surprise Haley with a tickle session...definitely one of my best ideas!

Off we went to explore the park! This was actually my second session for the DAY at Campbell Station Park! I just love that place! 

Gosh....don't you just love little girl freckles and soft eyelashes and baby hairs?!? So stinking cute!

See what I mean about them looking so much alike?!?


We had so much fun at the weeping willow that Haley wanted to go back! I have to say that these next few pictures are some of my favorite EVER!! 




Haley, my little Mogley, I love you and your momma so much!!! I hope we can get together SOON and go frolic somewhere else! :) Maybe your awesome aunt can tag along too?!?

Check back later this week for Baby Jack!!! He's a scene stealer...I'm telling you!
