…to have an even faster birth. Her last baby came fast, but this one came even faster! It really amazes me how much quicker labor & delivery tends to be when you’ve already had your first baby. All of the births I have photographed where mom is having her 2nd or 3rd baby have gone extremely fast. Although one would think that a fast labor & delivery is “better”, I think otherwise, as far as pain goes. True, it is less pain to have to endure as far as timing is concerned, BUT, because it is so fast, the pain is that much more intense (in my opinion). You figure that your body is working double time to move your baby down and the pain….unreal. Even with my 2nd baby, the labor & delivery were VERY fast. Like, eons faster than with my first…but man, the pain was much, much, much worse. Maybe because it was not gradual pain. It just hit like a ton of bricks at once and contractions came back to back to back. Right on top of each other. Eeek. My baby was a little over 6 pounds. So get this – this mommy’s baby was 9 pounds 8 ounces! Wow! Her 3rd baby. Extremely fast and intense labor & delivery. No meds, no intervention. All natural. I know, major, major, MAJOR big ups to her. What an amazing woman! Really! She is so strong…and brave. And, she is the sweetest, loveliest person you will ever meet. Lucky? Yes, I am really lucky to be doing what I do. On top of the incredible labor & delivery – her sweet baby had to go to the NICU when he was born. My heart sank for her because she just wanted to snuggle him and take in all of the amazingness of her newborn…but instead they wheeled him off to the NICU :(  So, when she told me he was finally home, I was beyond happy…such a relief knowing that he was better & getting to spend time with his mommy. Here is the story of her baby’s birth in photos :) I am humbled. I am thankful that they allowed me to document their unforgettable journey.

…at 14 months, she was just as fun to photograph as she was at 8 months! Talk about perfection! She is cute, sweet, bubbly, happy and so easy to photograph. As long as she had flowers and leaves to play with, she was as happy and easy going as can be :) And wow, her beautiful blue eyes. Oh my! And I must say, her smile has got to be one of my favorites to date. I love the different variations…mostly I loved the big open mouth smile with tongue and teeth showing, and her little shy closed lip smile :) She is so lovely!

…than an adorable baby girl in a field of flowers with her beautiful mommy! There must be something about this particular field because  so far, babies I photographed here do not want to be put down by mommy and daddy! Yes, she wanted to be held for most of the session, but that is ok and I really love how things turned out. Some amazingly sweet and tender moments between her and mommy & daddy :) The light, the field, the dress, the sweet little girl…sigh, it was so lovely :)

…my, how quickly 7 months has gone by. Were you really safe & cozy in my belly a mere 7 months ago? I can’t believe it. Look at how big you are! So much personality…and gasp – crawling! Mommy was late in posting these 7 month pictures of you, next week you will be 8 months! This makes me sad, very sad. With your brother, I was so happy with each milestone. I remember thinking to myself “I can’t wait until he sits up, I can’t wait until he crawls, I can’t wait until he walks, I can’t wait until he sleeps through the night”. But with you my angel, each milestone makes me sad. Sad because it means you are growing up, and getting one step closer to being a big girl :( Even the night wakings. I enjoy them. It means time we can cuddle. I can nurse you in a quiet room, hold you, be still with you. It’s lovely. You need me and I need you. Can I keep you this way forever? So sweet, soft, cuddly and small? Of course not, but what I can do is savor each fleeting moment. Take pictures (both physically and mentally) so that I can freeze frame these beautiful moments in my heart & mind before they fade and you’re off and running with your big brother. I love you my little angel.

  • Jennifer (kaylin's mommy) OMG JULIE!!! she's adorable!!!! I just want to hug her!!!! goo job mommy!! ;)(05.12.2012 08:08am)
  • Gigi Dear my precious baby grand-daughter Emi, u are so cute + so precious!!! u r also a pretty + beautiful baby!!! luv your cheeks, arms, legs, toes, lil fingers, & your BIG BROWN EYES just like your daddy!(10.08.2012 02:37pm)

…that is the one word that pretty much sums it up. What an absolutely charming little guy! He clearly, clearly has an extremely adorable smile (and laugh) – but I think my favorite was his more pensive and serious look – which he gave a lot of while eating a yummy cupcake at the end of the session :) It’s not uncommon for parents to express concern if their little one(s) don’t smile as much as usual during shoots. But truthfully, I prefer it when the babies give a range of emotion from happy & smiley to serious & even clingy. In fact, some of my favorite images are those when babies want to be held by mom or dad – cuddles and snuggles :)  I definitely got a wide range from this little guy – smiles, giggles, thoughtful gazes & cuddles! An energetic and sweet baby boy with a big personality!

Amazing! Yes, these sweet girls are amazing. Amazingly adorable and lovely. It was clear to see that their personalities are pretty different – even at only 12 days old!  One was very spunky and certain of what she wanted and didn’t want…and the other easy going and relaxed! But they were both suuper duuper cute. Gorgeous complexions and perfect little lips :) And a huge congrats to mommy & daddy for having three babies in under a year; and major WOW to mom for carrying her twin girls to full term – how rare and amazing is that?! Couldn’t be more true that this family is amazing in every way!

…not one, not two, but three! Three very adorable boys, full of energy and personality! Can you imagine how handsome they will be years from now?! They will be heartbreakers for sure! But for now, they are just as cute as can be. Adorable and full of spunk! And when I say “spunk” – I mean it! They are on the go, on the move, ready to rock & roll at all times! I’m not sure I’d have enough energy for three boys :) Mom & dad are truly amazing. Watching them with their boys is unforgettable! An absolutely gorgeous family!

  • Sue Miller What a Beautiful Family!!! I can't believe that Brad is all grown up! He is so handsome, and his wife is beautiful - it seems like it wasn't THAT long ago that Brad & Jennifer were little ones, too! The "BOYS" couldn't be any cuter - they look like little angels. God Bless Mom & Dad - they are going to need a lot of energy & patience for ever & ever with their darling sons!(05.29.2012 04:51pm)

…a playdate, not for the kids, but for me :) haha! I had a great time playing and hanging out with these two handsome guys. I must say, one of the perks of what I do is getting to act silly, letting my inner child come out to play and giggling to my heart’s content during sessions! I thoroughly enjoyed our playdate!
