Cullen | 3 Months

woohoo a portrait session for my own child... Ok doing a session with a 3 month old is far from easy, its a very awkward age for them, they can't sit up, the can't really hold their head up, most of them hate to be on their bellies; they are too big for newborn poses, and don't sleep as much or curl up as well. All these taken into account, I was determined to get some images of Cullen.

Another photographer told me that this was a great age to do Macro Shots of all those cute baby parts, so I tried it and boy was she right! Thanks Andrea! I enjoyed taking these pictures of Cullen, I even have a large print of the macro shots ordered, and I can't wait to see it hanging in his nursery!

Cullen | 12 weeks

I am told daily how much Cullen looks like his dad, I'm so glad because I think Tony is pretty cute myself, but I gotta admit when people don't think your child looks like you at all well sometimes for this hormonal mama I take it a bit offensive. After all I am the one who carried him for 9 months! I finally figured out how to get Cullen to look like me, I bought him this shirt.

Can't you see the resemblance?

Family | Our Family Portraits

We met up with Sarah from Pazy's Portraits to update our family portrait. Chasing around a toddler with a newborn in tow is quite the challenge, but I think she got some great images for us to have forever. You'll see a couple of these featured in our holiday card this year but I don't mind giving you a preview before hand.

to (great) Grandmothers house we go...

I love my Grandma! She is such and important part of my life and I want to share her with my sons. I don't get over to her house as much as I should (or want to) but when we do make it over there we have a blast!

My Grandma came up to the hospital when I had Cullen, but as everyone knows babies change so much, I love how Great Grandma and Cullen are looking at each other in this picture, its so sweet!

A little blurry but with my mommy goggles it is an awesome picture! I just love my boys sitting all happy with their Great Grandma, I know they are so lucky to have one in their lives.

Cousins - what kind of a trip to grandma's would it be without inviting your cousin along. Jonah had so much fun with Caleb in the leaves, Great Grandma's house had a LOT of leaves!

Cullen | 10 Weeks Old

Today, I had a quick minisession at a beautiful park, if you haven't checked out my photography blog lately you should! I've been able to photograph some beautiful people this year. Anyway today I decided to bring Cullen along, the weather was nice and I was able to bring a helper (i.e. grandma) along with me to take care of him while I photographed my client.

Because I always come prepared for an in promtu session for Cullen, and because he was in a great mood, I was able to get some more outdoor photos of him. Isn't he the cutest??

Its Voting Day!

We are lucky to both have good jobs, Tony's job allows him to have election day off of work so he can go vote. It helps immensly to have both of us go into the polls together. I'm not sure I would have been able to go vote if I had to go alone with both of my boys! they are handfuls!

Cullen's first time at the polls - showing off the babyhawk - one of my favorite pieces of baby gear, a definite must have in this house!
