I can’t wait to get the full post of handsome little Elijah up for you, but I thought I’d better give you a preview.  This afternoon was a fun day full of newborns photos and big sisters photos.  I only got peed on once (thank you to every newborn client I’ve had to prepare me for motherhood!) and got to dance with a two year old.  It doesn’t get better than this.  Check in soon for more of Eli and his big sis Grace.

You couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful day on Saturday.  It was the perfect day to celebrate Kennedi turning one!  Here’s a picture from the day to wet your appetite.  There will be more to come…

Purpose behind names is so important to me.  Ask Mike.  We’ll be sitting watching TV and I’ll hear a new name, and I have to look up the meaning.     And it’s not necessarily the meaning, it can be why you were named something.  Like Mike and I’s middle names are both family names, and I love that!  So when I learned that the 4 day old I was photographing was named Calvin, and I saw on his bookshelf a work by John Calvin next to “Good Night Moon” I realized he was destined for great things.

And can I tell you I also love taking pictures of newborns when they’re so new! I mean, four days old is right out of the oven!  And what a handsome baby at that.

I LOVE his smile!

Another smiley one…

I got to admit, this is one of my favorites

To counteract the smiles, I had to show you he was a real baby…

Siegmunds, your son is handsome.  And your love for him fills your home.  I’m so excited for you and your new family!

I’ve lived all of my life in Washington, less college, and I’ve never seen it rain like it has in the last few months.  It probably wouldn’t matter to me all that much, except I’m a photographer that likes to shoot outside.

To honor the patriarch of the family, we set up a family shoot with the Holmes family.  Saturday was fast approaching, and the rain was stalking our weekend.  The only other day I prayed so hard for it not to rain was my own outdoor wedding.  Saturday I woke up to the sound of down pour.  My heart sank.  I drove to Kirkland in the rain, with no sign of it letting up.  I pulled up to the park, and suddenly, the clouds parted!  It was like my prayers had been stuck in the clouds and finally made their way through!  The one hour without rain that day was the hour of our family shoot.

And look at this handsome man!  Well worth the rain stopping for…

And his lovely family

Thank you all for such a fun day!  It was great working with you!

What’s that saying about girls?  They’re full of sugar and spice and everything nice?  I think it should include giggles, bows, “hurrays” and Dora the Explorer.  Or at least it should for my niece.  The first time I saw her, she was just a babe…sleeping, crying, eating, those were her MOs.  Now, this little gal if full of life, beautiful, and a kick in the pants.  What a joy she is! 

 

I’m sure you noticed in my last post about Avery that her parents have some stunning blue eyes.  It is true that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

This is one of my favorites from our time.  Mike and his brother were playing “1, 2, 3!” with Avery.  Ah, I wish I was small enough to still play that game!  I love the angle on this pic, but most of all I love the sunlight!  Well no, most of all I love my niece in it, then the sunlight.  Family first, then photography. 

Yesterday was Avery’s 2nd Birthday.  That’s right, St. Paddy’s day.  Couldn’t be a better day for a Paterson!

Easter eggs and flowers

So the rain hasn’t been the only delay around our house.  Sorry for leaving you hanging last week on the blogging!  It was a bit crazy at the Paterson residence.  And it’s female resident being the chief culprit. 

Going back to the rain though.  We rescheduled the spring Easter shoot for fear of rain.  I know there were some of  you that had wanted to do the shoot, but weren’t able to do.  Our new date is March 28th.  We will have a back up, so rain or shine, that shoot is gonna happen!  And I can’t tell you how excited I am for it.  I’m going to have my own roost of little chicks, as well as Easter eggs and basket.  It will be so much fun!  So, if you felt you had missed out this weekend, you are welcome on the 28th.  Space is limited though, so let me know soon if you are wanting a spot!
