So I’ve been busy doing shoots. So busy, that I haven’t been a very good little blogger! If you ‘like’ my page on Facebook, you have seen a few sneak peeks here and there, but no blog posts! Until now. Here, my friends, is a lazy blogger’s blog post, of what I’ve been up to the last few weeks. Enjoy!
This is one of the first sessions I did back in the studio this year. I really enjoyed the outdoor sessions I did in the fall, but there is some comfort in the controlled space of the studio. These little girls are the daughters of a friend of a friend, and it was awesome to see them. The oldest was just a baby when I photographer her Mom & Dad’s wedding, and it’s amazing how time flies!
I’ve known Mama C since Junior High. She was one of my Bridesmaid’s. I remember walking down Elbow Drive with Mama C afterschool a couple days a week; she walked home that way, and I went to dancing. I remember being in English Honours with (and because of) Mama C. And I also remember her NEVER WANTING BABIES. She actually denied this once. But I remember.
***I do have to say here that my family will attest to the fact that I have many made-up memories from my past…but for the sake of a good blog post, just go with this***
I also remember the love I felt for my 1st born, and saying to Mama C shortly after that I would feel so bad for her if she never knew that feeling.
***This memory is totally true. We were at Luciano’s.***
Well, somewhere along the way, Mama C changed her mind. And I’m so glad she did. Meet Baby Annabel:
This is a phrase I say a million times a day, sometimes when I say it I even annoy myself. “Hello handsome boy!”
This is my handsome Boy at 9.5 months. Still waking every 2.5 – 3.5 hours at night to be nursed back to sleep. And I do it. I know, I know…I want to sleep, but I also loved to be needed. I know these months go by so quickly, and one day soon, I’ll look back at this sleepless time, and it will all be a haze. I’ve tried to let him cry it out multiple times, but for several reasons, still revert back to getting up and nursing him back to sleep. He is my third, I know he will sleep eventually. So for now, I will awaken with my handsome boy multiple times a night, spend a few stolen moments with the little guy who before my eyes is changing from a baby to a toddler, and nurse him back to sleep, because that’s how I roll.
