Despite appearances recently on this blog, I do have more than one child.  And I do love all five of them equally:).  I have been wanting to go out and take portraits of my two-year old in the fall colors for a while now, but with five kids, a newborn, a home to keep up, no sleep, reoccurring sore throats (see previous mention of no sleep), a husband in grad school and working full-time, and New York’s unpredictable weather, I wasn’t sure that would happen.  But it did.  Sure, it was horribly overcast and lightly sprinkling the whole time we were out, but we made it happen.  And while beautiful light is always, always desired and inspiring and takes images to that next level, there’s something to be said for cuteness in any weather.

Love you bunches.

Well, here we are, at the end of the true newborn images.  I love my babies and I love my job, so to be able to do my job with my own baby girl has been so blissfully wonderful.  Hard, exhausting, and a lot of work, but such a gift.

What an amazing 3 weeks!

She stole it right away.  I have been waiting anxiously to meet Miss Greta since her mama’s maternity session at the end of last year.  It’s always an honor to shoot for another photographer, and as a photographer, I know what a treasure it is to see your child through someone else’s lens.  And how much easier it is to be the mama at the shoot instead of the photographer.

Ashley brought Greta in for 9-month portraits in her christening gown–made from Ashley’s own wedding gown.  It was absolutely gorgeous.  As was Miss Greta.  And her expressions!  I could stare at her sweet little face all day long.  Ashley, it’s amazing you can bring yourself to do anything else.  She is truly a miracle.
