So, every year I have a few last minute seniors. No biggie….only, this one was super last minute. As in her deadline is tomorrow!!!  Crazy, right? Well, maybe….but when you are this photogenic, who the heck cares.  There really are some people who make my job seem pretty easy;)

Meet Olivia.

Evelyn: 6 months

November 25, 2012

Last weekend I got to spend a little time with sweet little Evelyn. Ev’s mommy and daddy are longtime friends of my youngest sister and her hubby, so this session was a gift from them:)  Six month sessions are a bit difficult to plan since so many babies at this stage are so different from one another. They can’t always sit up, some are still teething and are a bit cranky, and then some are crawling all over the place!  Luckily, I am more of a “go with the flow” type photographer and I truly believe that a little playtime leads to some really fun photos.

Of course, babies can get a bit tired from too much play.  But in all honesty, Evelyn had the best pouty face ever!!

Helen, Brian and Miss Evelyn, thanks for letting me spend a little time hanging out.  Hope you love these…there are many more to come:)

I am to the point now where m brain cannot wrap itself around how many times I have photographed this family. And even better…it is still just as much fun as it was our first session. I think too many times too many of us take for granted life as it is right this very moment. It doesn’t matter what your current hair color is, the number your scale blares at you, or even your current family dynamic….the important thing is to just live in the moment. I am so grateful that I have been able to capture so many memories for Amanda and her boys and I look forward to many many more years doing just that:)

I don’t even know where to start with this post, other than I am beyond excited to meet my newest nephew or niece. And to make things even more exciting, Lauren is the last of my three sisters to be expecting.  So while she has been the most amazing aunt to her nieces and nephews, it feels like we are welcoming her into a special “mommyhood club” icon smile Lauren + Michael...and Bauer, too! : expecting

Lauren and Mike, you two are going to be amazing parents and I cannot wait to meet our newest family member!  There is nothing more fun, crazy, scary and rewarding than raising a child.  Just when you think you have got a good handle on things they will surprise you with their own ideas, and even though it will drive you a little crazy. it will make you love them that much more.
