welcome baby lila!

i got a chance to do my first newborn photo shoot last week!  maybe it’s because i have a baby of my own, but i just never grow tired of taking pictures of wee little ones.  so far, my favorite type of photography is birth, with newborns coming in a close second.

you must admit, this family makes the most beautiful, bright eyes children!  lila’s brother luke, wasn’t afraid of the camera and thus managed to steal (more than) a few pics of his own!  their was such a sense of peacefulness in this home!  i was so happy to be welcomed in and given the opportunity to capture some beautiful moments for this lovely, growing family!

dan + jennie + ben + ?

meet the steele family!  dan and jennie, along with their little cutie, ben, are anticipating the arrival of their baby girl sometime the beginning of october.  last sunday we met at the back bay and took advantage of the california beauty there by capturing just a glimpse of the miracle of pregnancy.  it truly is one of those everyday miracles!  there is a little person inside that cute round belly – a person with emotions and a soul and tiny fingernails!  it’s just wild, if you really think about it!

the back bay

on wednesday, shelby and i met up with sarah (nugent) sweggles for a walk and then lunch. we trekked in the wild flowers at the back bay and had fun watching shelby explore snails, the dirt, flowers, sticks, etc. and trying to keep up with her as she ran. she told us herself, “i have a lot of energy!” if we could just bottle that up and sell it, we’d never have to work again :). here are some pics (of shelbs of course) from our exploration…

welcome baby benjamin!

what an incredible experience i has this past tuesday!  on 4.6.10, i was able to witness little benjamin cole goodman make his way into the world!  it was a home birth and was attended by 2009 midwife of the year, bj snell {she’s my midwife too}.  the process was so beautiful and peaceful!  and brooke did such an amazing job!  she was so centered and calm.  although i have seen many births during my nurse’s training, i think this was my first natural birth, and definitely my first home birth!  there seemed to be such comfort and ease in being at home.  even big brother jonathan and big sister kate got to see their little brother’s arrival.  what a moment!  i feel honored to have been given the opportunity to capture some of the beauty of benjamin’s birth day!  congrats, goodmans!
