Well Andrew just keeps getting more handsome! Being home a week he had sleeping, feeding and smiling down. I can’t wait to see him again in 6 months!

 Another beautiful baby for the Giannini family and I’m so glad that I got to photograph them again. This was such a great newborn session… parents comfortable in front of the camera, a baby girl that sleeps the. entire. time and big brother that really doesn’t want much to do with us. In the end we were able to coax him into a few shots :)

I got to spend another great day with the Abraham’s! We had some sun and wind plus a shower or two….typical Oregon weather. Sweet baby girl was a little sick and chilly towards the end but was as cute as ever. Can’t wait to see her when she is walking!

I was so excited to photograph the Gross family as I had done her sisters family photos a few times and several of her friends. Such a fun family! I was so impressed with the kids as an hour before their family shoot we did an extended family shoot with their grandparents and cousins and they were so great for both!

I think taking photos of your family are so important but even more so to take the time to include your grandparents, parents and siblings. I had such a nice time spending the morning with everyone, in a beautiful location, kind parents and five kids (plus a pug that didn’t want to be left out) that did such a great job!

Photographing births can be tough… you are on-call, it’s long hours (babies don’t just pop out when we want them to), it’s always in the middle of the night… but oh my goodness, it is SUCH an adrenaline rush, the most amazing experience. I was so honored to photograph Andrew’s birth story, to be with them on their most important day as I know how long they have waited for this day to come. This was not the easiest birth and Amy (Toby too) was a champ. I had never seen a c-section before (a bit nervous) and was so excited when the nurses finally said I could be in the OR (I would have been so sad to not have been able to document the best part!).  I know how lucky they feel to finally have Andrew but he is the lucky one.
