Little Cowboy

Saturday, June 21st, 2008

Sweet JT. It’s so crazy how his face looks so much like a grown child instead of a 16 day old newborn. He was such a good baby; I love it when they pose for me.

He loved his family blanket that had been passed down from generations. So cool to have a piece of history to wrap yourself in.


He has the coolest “cowboy” bedroom.

The Newness of Being a Mom

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

You have a new baby and you just stare, and watch her. Every second, every move. At what point did you just fall so head over heels you started to cry? That surge of pure emotion because you’ve never loved any one thing more? The amazement that this little thing was inside you for so long. And she’s all yours.

Yeah, I remember when I did that with my two. And everyday I look at them and still can’t believe they’re mine. You’d think I’d get over it by now, 3 years later. Nope, they never cease to amaze you.

This is Hanna when she was 3 weeks old; so fresh and new…and little. I remember her Mommy and I on the phone preparing for her maternity session and me asking what she was going to name her. I was so floored when I found that we have the exact same first and middle name for our daughters! Crazy, huh? Same names but different spellings. My Hannah is 15 months older; I told her giving your girl the name Hannah means she will be fiesty (in my experience). So far at 3 weeks she was an angel.

PS, I will put Mommy’s awesome maternity session in another post.





Note to Self

Wednesday, June 18th, 2008

Never go to bed at 4 am. With kids in the house, it’s like waking up totally hung over. But without ever having the fun of an adult beverage–bummer. I should probably nap sometime today, but naps never happen at this house. Especially for me anyway. But the good news is that I was able to get some work done. Yes, I was working until 4 am. (Shh…don’t tell anyone; makes me sound so dull.)

This big boy is Grant. So sweet. His was probably one of the easiest newborn portrait sessions I’ve done in a long time. He was so good, and perfectly asleep for most of the shoot. Grant was a total life-size doll, and poseable too! If you’ve never seen a new Mommy so in love with her child, it’s worth just standing in the room to watch.



Once a Month

Tuesday, June 17th, 2008

Yeah, so I average about one blog post a month! Ha! That is so sad. Please don’t think I’ve just been sitting around. Oh no! I WISH I could just hang out and do nothing. Truth is, I am so thankful to be so busy, just a little too busy sometimes. A good problem, yes. And the lack of blogging…well, it’s not that I don’t have anything to share. On the contrary, I have so much, I don’t really know where to begin. But I’ll start here…

Meet the best 22 month old ever! Ava was so fun and easy to work with. She and her folks met up with me at Memorial Park (when it was still bearable outside), and we had so much fun. SO much fun I ripped my pants (not a joke)! Mom and Dad were so in love with their little girl; she hammed it up for the camera perfectly. She was all smiles, even between mouthfuls of Goldfish crackers.





It Goes By Too Fast

Monday, April 28th, 2008
Doesn’t it? First met this little guy at 6 days old…next thing you know, he’ll be a teenager! Which means I should blog this before he gets there. Ha ha.




Here he was when we first met: http://jaynemaltbie.blogspot.com/2007/10/sleep-like-rock.html

Old and New

Wednesday, April 16th, 2008

I had the pleasure of working with 4 generations of women (well, 3 women, one baby) back in January. It was a great experience to listen and watch them interact with each other. I felt really privileged to have been chosen to document all of them together. And to talk to Great Grandma…way cool. She told me a story about back in her day, and I was all ears. It totally thrilled the historian in me. :)





Where to Start?

Friday, February 1st, 2008

Yeah, so as if you didn’t know…I suck at blogging. Keeping up with it anyway. I am one busy girl these days. I’ve had so many sessions from last year that I never had a chance to post. I’ve worked with so many beautiful families and children. It would be a crime not to show them off. So look for posts from old sessions, as I have lots of them to share. ;)

I’m working on improving my website and blog this year. I will also be running a bunch of promotions and specials as well as looking for new models for my portfolio…so look out for that.

Anyhow, without further delay…Tyler and his wonderful family for thier Holiday portraits. Love his little smile.


Sparkle and Shine

Friday, November 30th, 2007

Have I ever mentioned how much I love my job? The truth is, I work with the most beautiful people, inside and out. This family welcomed me into their home for a newborn session a while ago (hmmm, I should post that one) and I had the best time working with their beautiful daughters. Celia has such a bright personality (and the most beautiful face). And now it seems little Mira’s is coming out too. They must get it from their parents; the nicest bunch of people you’ll ever meet. Hope you guys love this sneak preview…super hard to choose images to share! Happy Holidays!

Ready for Baby Sister

Friday, November 30th, 2007

I was so excited to be able to photograph Julian and his family again. I shot his Mom while she was pregnant with him and now again while she is pregnant with a baby girl. They are a gorgeous family and so easy to work with. Julian was having a blast jumping around on the bed. He was dancing up a storm. I know he will be such a good big brother. Can’t wait to meet the new baby!





Cousins

Wednesday, November 28th, 2007

I had the pleasure of hanging out with some friends and shooting their holiday family portraits. I love these kids! They were so much fun to work with. I think I laughed more than they did. I’m excited for the two new little boys on the way. They will be here soon, so look out for some newborn photos! Can’t wait! Happy Holidays guys!
