Archive for December, 2010

What an amazing year 2010 has been for me. I was able to be among the first to meet 26 brand new little people as they began their journeys this year. I am truly humbled and honored and grateful for everyone of my wonderful clients who have welcomed me into this most special and fleeting time in their families’ lives this year. Looking back over the images from this last year, I am reminded yet again of how truly unique and beautiful every single baby is, how much he or she is loved, and just how much personality and potential is crammed into each of those tiny, new little bodies.

Thank you so much for making 2010 such an unforgettable year.   2011 promises to be just as wonderful, and I cannot wait to meet so many clients who haven’t even been born yet.  Just as an announcement, the focus of Jessica Washburn Photography will be shifting to primarily newborn sessions next year.  I will continue to book maternity sessions for newborn clients, as well as follow-up baby sessions for my newborn clients, but I will not be booking family sessions in the new year (with the exception of those already booked–not to worry).  I look forward to a year of snuggling, soothing, lots of laundry and sweet baby perfection–can’t wait!

What a Christmas gift baby Conor is, of course for his parents, but also for me as I was able to snuggle and work with him earlier this week.  Each new little person I have the opportunity to photograph reminds me of just how much joy and wonder and potential there is in every single human being.

Baby Conor, 6 days.

Heather and Jacques, he truly is a gift.  Thank you for sharing him with me for a little while:).

…up sessions before the holidays, that is.  I just love this time of year.  I am one of those Christmas nuts who can’t help occasionally popping in a Christmas video or CD in the middle of June just to keep the spirit of the season alive all year long.  I love to bake and I have big bags of sugar just sitting in my pantry waiting to be transformed into ridiculously delicious Christmas candy.  I am even ready to untangle and test countless strings of white twinkle lights.  It’s that time.

But, before I get too crazy, I have a few sessions left to complete and blog.  Wanna take a peek?

First up is beautiful mama-to-be, Alison.  I can’t wait to meet baby-to-be (the gender will be a surprise for both of us)!

Next is Madeline.  She’s grown so much in the 8 months since her newborn session, but those lashes especially blew me away!  And her dress?  Gorgeousness!
