New Baby Love and a Teaser

This little man has been long, long awaited. It's a bit different to take the photos when you are good friends with the Mom and Dad, and you are just so darn excited that he's here! I kept tearing up at this session because not only is he a little angel, but he's got two loving parents who are just going to be so great at raising him. Welcome to the world baby O'Shea!

Now for the teaser. There is going to be a BIG addition to Fresh Sugar coming this fall. A new side, a new style, a new site.
I'm super excited, and will let you know more in a few days - because I need YOUR help to get things started!
Stay tuned.

Big Mac Is Gone!

I had a complete hard drive crash this week, and my computer, which is affectionately named Big Mac, is in for service. They've managed to recover everything, but I had just backed up everything two days before, so all sessions are safe and sound. Unfortunately though, I am not able to work on anything until I get Big Mac back - so I'm sitting by the phone waiting for them to call and tell me to come and get it.

I don't think this photo needs me blabbing about it too much, it really does speak for itself. This family is the best, I think I overstay my welcome everytime I go over there, I just have to much fun at these sessions - I never want to leave.
Happy, happy family. And it shows, doesn't it? ;)

The Moment

As my clients can tell you, I rarely pose anyone, but let everyone interact with each other and I try to capture what's going on.
Of course, sometimes I will brush some strands of hair away, or suggest certain things to do with arms, but I don't go crazy with posed shots.

Which is how I can get these amazing, emotion-filled portraits that just really speak for themselves. I love when I get home and take a look through the photos as I'm uploading them, and I just see that "Moment" that I was lucky enough to be a part of. Sometimes it's a little baby smiling in his sleep, sometimes it's a look or a touch that dad gives to mom.
I seriously have the best job in the world.

This 9-month old guy said his first word in a field of clover at Sunday's session. As he was looking at stalk of clover - he said "daisy"! Ok, maybe not really, but it sure sounded like it. I know I talk an awful lot about fun families, but I am just so lucky! My clients are all just a total hoot, and this fam was no exception. I love my job - I had a fantastic morning at the park!
