first photo session.

A couple of months ago I received an email from Kristie, a fellow scrapbooker that I met through Scrapbook.com. Kristie lives in my town and she and her husband were expecting their 3rd...and 4th!! child and she wanted to know if I might be intersted in coming to do a photo session of them when they arrived. I was so over-the-moon excited and incredibly flattered.

The big day came just a week ago and those sweet little babes made their arrival - at 3 weeks early but healthy and so very beautiful! So on Wednesday I went to spend the morning with them and do my very first photo session ever (for someone other than family :)). It was truly amazing. I was in awe of these two and how different they were even at 5 days old. Baby Boy was so calm and laid back, very even tempered, while his sister was much more fiesty and with a headful of hair! The session went pretty smoothly considering we were dealing with keeping not only one but two babies happy. Kristie, her friend Erin (and my friend, Stacy) did such a fantastic job helping me out during and preparing me before!

So to Kristie I want to say, thank you. Thank you for thinking enough of me and my work that you were willing to share your family with me for the day. I truly appreciate you giving me the chance to learn and practice and I hope you're pleased with your images!
How can your heart not melt seeing these two? Isn't it precious how their faces just snuggle so close together? At one point, she was even sucking on his fingers and nose!
Look at those sweet baby bellies. They were so new that their umbilical stumps were still attached.
This is baby girl - just look at all that beautiful hair and those perfect features.
And her brother - such a snugglebug! He was still so "bendy" and would just curl into a teeny ball while his sister preferred stretching out everywhere!
Do you think Kristie would have noticed if I took them with me when I left?
Yeah.
Me too. ;)
