I was so, so happy to meet Orion. I don’t know if he felt the same. I laugh really loud sometimes and I might have scared him once or twice. Maybe I was a little too excited. You see Orion’s Dad, Kevin, was one of my best bros when I was a senior in high school. We both loved the same kind of music and had the same goof ball sense of humor. We spent a lot of time making stickers in Kinko’s of things we cut out of the Providence Phoenix. Since Kevin is a year younger than me he would later use those stickers to decorate the letters he sent to me while I was away at school in New York City. Kevin impressed my cool and brainy roommates by writing William Blake quotes on the envelope next to these very silly stickers. “Mock on, Mock on, Voltaire, Rousseau”… I probably still have those letters in a Doc Marten shoe box somewhere. Anyway, we were bros! So how could I not be excited to see him again but only now with his lovely family. Kevin is now an artist, a painter. He married a very hip lady named Holly. How can Orion not grow up to be the coolest little man with parents like this?
He looks a little nervous… I must have been laughing.
Now this is a cool family, right? Kevin’s face, Orion looks like he is serenading Holly. I love it.
Orion is wearing a red FuzziBunz! I love a baby in a cloth diaper. They are cute AND eco friendly! They will also save you a ton of money. I know because I use them for my son, Max. If you are thinking about making the switch to cloth do it! You will not regret it. Email me and I’ll give you some pointers to help get you started.
Here we have Jackson and Carter. Jackson is the oldest. Like my first baby Jackson was a great sleeper. Then came Carter. Like my second baby Carter isn’t so good at sleeping. This has led to many a facebook conversation between Carter’s Mom and I. Over the past 4 or 5 months we have been discussing sleep or should I say lack there of. When it comes to babies we both lost the sleeping lottery. Carter needs to thank his lucky stars that he is so cute. That’s the only way he is able to get away with such torture. Christy, I hope you can keep your eyes open long enough to see these pictures. I’m surprised I have the wherewithal to even focus a camera never mind finish this blog post… zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
I just love Jackson in this picture!
I’m a sucker for a hat and beautiful eyes.
The serious shots…
Up next for the tiny shoots is Cady and Avery! When the girls came in they both sat on the floor. I put myself in position and started snapping some pictures. The first picture I took is the one on the left. Very cute and candid moment of the two sisters holding the balloons. When I look at that picture now I can literally see the wheels turning in Cady’s head. She is thinking “When can I stop sitting here and just run?” Notice the picture to the right is just Avery. That’s because Cady didn’t waste much time. She ran circles around all of us! It’s really no surprise. That’s what kids are supposed to do.
She was fast, but she is no match for me! I still got her!
I love these! How cute are her little pigtails bouncing around?
Another familiar face! Alex’s beautiful little mug has already appeared on my blog. He is a mini shoot pro! He and his family were at my mini shoot park day back in October. He was a tiny little peanut back then with a blocked tear duct. It made him look like he was always fresh from a cry. What can I say? It was sort of cute. Now he is almost a year old! The time just flies! I know his mom, Michelle, is most likely feeling a little emotional about this milestone birthday. Alex, the sweet adorable baby, will soon be… Do I even say it? A toddler! Well, we aren’t there yet so let’s not rush it. Here are some pictures of Alex as the cute little baby that he is.
Alex is a man of many hats…
There was a lot of peek-a-boo-ing and other silliness going on behind me while I was snapping photos. Alex was making everyone work for a smile! We did get one!
I actually kind of like the serious Alex.
