I love newborn sessions! I was especially excited for this one. Baby Drew just happens to be my new neighbor! I love any opportunity to get to know my neighbors better! Drew did wonderful for this shoot. I even got to try out a new backdrop and a couple of new props. It is fun trying to come up with new ideas and finding stuff to use that hasn’t been used before. His dad is a phy ed teacher so he’s really into sports. We were able to incorporate his baseball glove into some of the pictures. It’s so fun seeing how small Drew is next to his daddy’s glove. They grow up so fast, and it’s great to be able to look back at photos to see how small they were when they started out.
This shoot is a great reminder to me of why I LOVE doing on location shoots! People have the funnest stuff in their homes! I could tell the instant I drove up to their house that it was going to be a unique and fun and beautiful newborn shoot. I was right. The painting you see in some of the photos was one that the dad actually painted. I was so impressed. This couple had such an eye for decorating. They were also super sweet. The dad even showed me the play set he got up before the new baby came. It was his way of “nesting”. 🙂 I loved it so much that we went and got the same one for our little guy who just turned 2 in June!
What a wonderful Easter! If you don’t know this already, I attend Calvary Chapel in Bemidji. The service was great! We started out with worship (I played bass, guitar, and sang). We heard a great message. Then we ended it with prayer and fellowship.
After the great service, my parents came over for lunch, which consisted of take’n’bake pizza and the new Cabela’s Dangerous Hunts 2011! I could hardly get my husband and father-in-law away from the game!
We ended the evening at my grandma’s. There were about 20 of us that gathered for a yummy turkey dinner and an egg hunt. The newest great-granchild just turned 3 months. His name is Austin, and he was SOOOOO cute! This little guy looks just like his daddy. It’s so fun to watch my cousin and her husband move on to this next exciting stage in their life. I was so excited to take a few, quick shots for them! Aren’t they an adorable family?!
