Nephew Jameson

Baby Jameson was born April 17th, 3+ weeks early.  After a week in the NICU for some careful watching, he was able to go home.  After the issues with his older brother, everyone was very worried on how Jameson would do but he surprised everyone.  Shoot, my son was further in term and did worse!

Shortly after he came home, I was able to get a photo shoot done.  I have a long way to go in Newborn photography.  It is not my specialty at this moment!  But I did get some beautiful images nonetheless.

My favorite

I love this one too

This one just cracks me up!

Babies, Babies, Everywhere Babies

Our family loves to grow by magnitudes all at the same time!  It's pretty funny actually.

In 2005, my parents gained a son-in-law and a grandson within a month of each other.  I got married and my brother had the first baby of the family, my nephew.  Can't believe he will be turning 6 in November!

In 2007, they gained a daughter-in-law and 2 granddaughters.  My brother got married, and they had my niece and I had my daughter.  The girls are 6 weeks apart.  

In 2008, my cousin had his first baby, a little girl.  My best friend had her first baby as well, a little girl - that is best friends with my daughter.

In 2010, my cousin had his second baby, a little boy.  I had my son - in December, so he is now 4.5 months.

In 2011, we are up to 2 new babies already!  My brother had his third and my best friend had her second, another girl.

So in 5 and a half years, we have added 9 babies to the family and we have had 5 marriages since 2004.

It still cracks me up on how fast we have grown, Christmas dinners are now a strategic war plan on how to fit all these people at a dining room table, sadly but luckily not all of us can make it every year which helps the strategy planning.  9 babies, 1 Great Grandma, and 16 adults!

Easter on the Jersey Shore

This year we were here on the Jersey Shore.  It was a fairly quiet day, with a small hunt for eggs around the house with my daughter.  Spent a little time at my brother's with his family, and an old friend in town came for a visit and to trim my nephew's hair.  The afternoon was spent on the deck enjoying the super warm weather (Finally!!) with my grandma and editing pics.  Topped off with a yummy prime rib dinner and 2 hours of folding laundry - yes I was that behind!!

I love that one!

We had a lot of fun this weekend, including splashing in puddles and dying eggs.

Sweet and Cute!

My last mini-session of the day consisted of two sisters.  Both are just so sweet and just adorable! And all that beautiful hair made for some fun! They were natural models in front of the camera, it was such a joy shooting them.

The contrasting colors of the matching jackets was just perfect!

OMG! This photo blows my mind.  I LOVE it!  Those hats!!  The perfect pose and smiles!

Wardrobe change!  It was awesome that their mom brought props and extra clothes to change it up!

If they don't get this one in a large print and hang it on their wall, I might just have to.

Thank you Sherri for the chance to step into your world for a little while
