I've been so excited to share images from this newborn session.  Miss C was such a good, sweet, darling baby - born just in time for the holidays.  There is nothing like a newborn.  They are just so pure and new from heaven.  Thank you to the M family for letting me be a part of those first precious days to capture your sweet daughter!

In going through past Portrait Party folders, I came across this image and I just had to share.  

Yes, Mr. A, we do love you.

Taking pictures of your own kids

Taking pictures of your own kids is one of the most challenging things for photographers. You cover up your own face with that ugly old camera and then proceed to make weird noises trying to get them to look natural and then wonder why it doesn't happen! But I am determined to capture some of the sweet faces I know only I will see. I am thankful for a new camera with "live" mode so that I don't always have to look through the viewfinder -- in fact that is how I got several of these "looks". But, it does mean that I also got quite a few pictures where the focus wasn't exactly on the right spot. But I got some of the smiles I was hoping for so it was worth a few (hundred) lousy shots!!

the puppy dog eyes that melt my heart

the sweetest hands and the sweetest gestures

the cutest outfit

and the bonus -- a beautiful shot of the big sister who doesn't always give the natural smile on demand (usually I get the "cheesy" smile)

I can't choose.  All the photos of this little doll were so sweet, they deserved their own post.  I wanted to bring her home with me after our session together!
 
Thanks so much to the W family.  We loved having you at our December Portrait Party!
