So, yeah.

It seems as though an entire month flew by and I didn’t blog one bit.

Ouch.  Didn’t mean to keep you waiting.

It started as just an oversight, and then it turned into avoidance because I was cranky, which turned into avoidance because it was daunting.  But, here I am.  Let’s dig in.

I did a photo shoot for a dear friend of mine.  The idea started because she’s pregnant and I wanted to do some maternity pictures.  It morphed into more of a family photo shoot, but I had fun and I think the kids did too.  Here’s some of my favorites:


I like this one.  It reminds me of the generation where being glamorous was celebrated… the days of Marilyn Monroe, Jackie O…


I like the way the blue in her shirt makes the white flower pop.  I also love that the remnants from a self-given hair cut are evident.


I wasn’t crazy about this one, but it’s growing on me.  The dress was such a pretty fabric I wanted to show it off, but still not one of my faves.


This is the whole clan.  It is challenging to get everyone together, looking good and smiling, so I’ve learned to just capture what I can.  This is a little more real to me, and seeing the girls in this picture makes me giggle.  Their laughter tickles my ears.

I cannot wait to see how a little man changes the dynamic of this family (he will have three big sisters!), and I am going to do a shoot when he finally arrives.

So until then, I am (im)patiently waiting for his arrival.
