Happy New Year, Happy Valentine, and mostly welcome to Mack!
I go through this periodically, a bit of a lacking presence on my blog, followed by sincere apologies for disappearing. Like everyone I know “I am very busy”, lame excuse but here it is. I started the New Year not so much with new resolution but more the promise to keep the door open, to take the time to follow my dreams. And do I know how to dream! We are extending the house… a bigger studio, women photography, I’m learning to make jewelry… Jewelry, that’s right, and pretty soon (in 2 weeks time) you will see me with my girls holding a little stand on the Palafox market. I will be sure to send a facebook notice prior.
On to this sweet boy. He is the smallest baby I have ever photographed! Jessica brought me her son Mack last week to photograph him at 4 pounds and 6 ounces! He is a preemie and such a strong healthy little one, he was quickly released from the hospital. I was very careful to keep him warm during his session and we were able to get several very sweet poses, great memories for his parents.
Mack is sporting a lovely bonnet, knitted by yours truly:)
Howland, Pensacola newborn photographer
The year is going by so quickly, next week it’s Thanksgiving and already there is a feel of Christmas in the air, with decorations up in the streets, the houses… Let’s not even mention the stores, most went straight for Christmas and forgot about Halloween altogether!
Amelie and Kent have plenty to be thankful for with this sweet boy of theirs.
Skyler, 1 year old, already!
It really feels like just yesterday when I first met Skyler and photographed him as a newborn. Yet, today he’s learning to walk!
I know I’ve been favoring Facebook and seemed to have forgotten about my blog. I do much prefer the blog configuration, as I’m all about the images, it’s definitely here that you can see them better! However, I get instant feedback on FB, giving me the impression that I’m really sharing my pictures with an “audience”, and it’s very gratifying. I’m also exploring Pinterest, what an interesting concept! We have made so much progress in sharing with the world thanks to the internet in just these last few years, it’s mind boggling. The only downfall is that it can suck you into a time warp zone. I’ve learned to keep myself on a timer to try to fend this danger.
Today, a few images from Skyler’s first year session.
How smart of his parents to have bought this basket after his newborn session. It will be really cool for Skyler to use it later, maybe as a collenge student, and to have these pictures of him in it.
Vivian, bundle of sweetness
An other great session with sweet Miss Vivian. A very happy little girl, a perfect little model. It’s not always easy being a model, lots of change of clothes, sometimes you even need to get out of your comfort zone and undress… completely to the request of the artsy photographer. Sometimes you even get stuck in a basket, but there’s also playtime, snacks, and a nice warm bath.
Oh, but it can be exhausting to be a model at times!
Nothing that a little hug time won’t fix…
Overall it is a fun day!
It’s happened again: a little trip to France, I distance myself from my computer and then I neglect my blog. I apologize, I did leave with all good intentions to share all the beautiful sight seeing with a constant flow of images. It didn’t work out as planed… I just really enjoyed myself, my family, my vacation, learning to knit (ohhhh, I did learn and have many adorable newborn hats to show off very soon).
I’m back and in the groove of things, all 3 children well adapted to their school and schedules. Isaac is to blame for lagging in getting our routines down! I hope all faired well.
Today, Chaz is the star of the show.
In the next 2 fallowing images, Chaz is modeling 2 of the hats I’ve made this summer,
Chaz with his mom, Lindsey. Holding a baby is like pausing the world, the purest moment, complete bliss.
We forget, newborns are SO SMALL. Chaz with his dad, Quint.
First grand child for Diane,
