Annabelle is turning ONE!









 
I had a tough time narrowing down the photos to publish of Annabelle because I LOVED THEM ALL! She is such a doll. And her mama is adorable. And her slightly bearded dad is ever-so-nice and built that impressive fence that Annabelle is posing with. (Basically, their family is the whole package.) Thank you for giving me the chance to photograph you guys! Happy first birthday to Annabelle and good luck with your new addition!

Baby Nate (and family!)

 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Last week I was privileged to take photos of sweet baby Nate (only five days old!) and his adorable family. Those second babies seem to have this uncanny ability to grow up twice as quickly as their older sibling. Thus, I'm so happy I was able to help capture those precious first moments at home.
Enjoy those delightful little boys!

The Brown Family





I shot photos of these lively little boys and their parents this weekend at Centennial Lakes Park. (Great location for pictures! I kind of want my own family photos taken there.) As usual, I feel like I can skip the gym this week after chasing after tiny children. Despite my exaggerated exhaustion, I'm really pleased with how these turned out!

October via iPhone

What life looks like according to my phone photos lately:
 
 
Our festive kitchen table. (Can you spot the bite marks on the shiny pumpkin from last year?)
 

Carving pumpkins at Grandma Michele's. I think the face on the left sums up how Cece feels about pumpkin guts.
 
 
Goodness. Those cheeks and chins just slay me.
(Photo courtesy of Grandma Michele!)
 

A chilly but fun morning at the farmers market last week.
 
 
Our most recent and current favorite hobby. (Joe is all that is man. Hubba hubba!)
 
 
Speak of hobbies, I recently started a Facebook page for my photography and announced that I am open for business. And fortunately, people are taking me seriously and I've done eight photo shoots this month. Thank you everyone for the support and referrals!
 

There's never a bad shot of an October sky.
 

Sitting no longer interests me, mother. I shall attempt standing whenever and wherever I can!
 
 
What part of "We are NEVER going to bed," don't you understand, Mom?

 
This week Princess Anna wanted to help me rake leaves. She took two swipes at the leaves and then handed the rake back to me. And then lost her princess shoe in the massive leaf pile. And then asked me to find it for her.
 
Fall is fun, no???

Seven Months!


 
Last week, this little lady turned seven months old. I wanted to get some nice photos as we've had some blessedly warm days this October and she's sitting up like a pro.
 
She is also
 
...trying with all of her might to crawl.
 
...pulling herself up to standing in her crib (yikes! Time to drop the mattress down!)
 
...liking her first tastes of rice cereal (BTW, I forgot how darn messy it is to feed babies. I'm real behind on the food thing this go-around)
 
...babbling and babbling. She has a lot to tell everyone.
 
...seriously loving other babies. She squeals and tries to lunge at/play with babies her size. More play dates please!
 
All in all she is just delightful. I knew I would love our second baby with all of my heart, but she really is more wonderful than I could have imagined or asked for.



 
^^^Things got very Glamour Shot-esque around here recently!^^^
(We had to get creative coming up with different places around our house to take pictures. I slightly regret painting the walls varying shades of turquoise when we moved in.)
 
But the below photos are my FAVORITE.
 
 
(Had the wrong white balance setting for this photo, but I don't care. Still love it.)




 
 
 
So, there you go. Your daily dose of Miss Rosie!
