Last night as I was finishing up editing some newborn photos and moving onto another set I realized that my mind was racing…I couldn’t stop thinking about how much I really love what I’m doing. It was late, the kids were already asleep, I had some DVR’d shows (American Idol) that I needed and really wanted to watch…but I didn’t want to stop doing what I was doing to go into the other room to relax. I was thinking about the shoots that I have planned for next week – including a 2 day shoot at a school that I am so very excited about, and the shoots that I have in my mind that I want to do and I realized that I was just so excited about them.
I know that I am very lucky to have the opportunity that I do to live out my dreams and be a photographer. I know that I’m lucky that I have my three kids who are willing (most of the time) to model for me, test out locations for shoots and try out some of the ideas I have floating around in my head. I know that I’m lucky that I have a super supportive husband who encourages me and pushes me to be the best me that I can be. I’m lucky for the amazing clients that I’ve met and been able to get glimpses into their lives.
I think that before I go on too long about all this, I’m going to stop and show three photos of a recent newborn session for my Thursday Three Things of the week. If you ‘d like to see more of this sweet family check out their maternity session and a sweet peek at their baby here.
Another reason I love my job – I get to play with sweet babies…can’t really beat that.

I love all three of these pictures – the first one, I love seeing his hand over his wife’s – second one is so precious and the third one, I love the fact that the mother is holding the baby’s thumb:) Great shots:)
These are beautiful baby pictures. My favorites are the couple on the couch with baby, and the one with Mom holding the baby in her hand and the baby’s arms are hanging down. How much more can a person be relaxed? They are a beautiful family!!
