Well, it’s been a while since I’ve blogged…..we’ve had a crazy summer. My husband and I took the kids up to Ohio to visit my parents in July and they were gracious enough to watch all four of them while Darrin and I traveled to Ireland! I have the BEST parents don’t I?! My husband and I had a blast and got to see U2 in concert twice while we were there. Ireland was just gorgeous and I will have some snapshots from there to share very soon….I’ve just been so busy that I haven’t had the time to get them on here. We had a great time but are glad to be home and finally settling back into our regular routine 🙂
And speaking of routine….I am happy to be taking on sessions again! My first session since I’ve been back was a newborn session for a lovely couple…..Nadia and Ulyan. They’ve been married for 4 years and just welcomed a beautiful baby boy into their family. I actually went to high school with Nadia and had not seen her for probably 15 years….so it was SO nice to get to see her again and meet her beautiful family! Baby Aleks was exactly 2 weeks old when I got to take his pictures and I have to say that he was SO good for me! He slept like a champ and didn’t seem to mind me moving him all around. The only thing he didn’t enjoy was curling his legs up….he wanted to keep those suckers stretched straight out most of the time 🙂 Aleks is just a gorgeous baby….he arrived 3 weeks early and Nadia had a really long, extremely rough labor…..and you can tell just how grateful she is to have him in her arms. She and Ulyan could barely take their eyes off of Aleks…..I loved seeing that strong bond. Nadia’s parents were also at the session and this is the first grandchild for them and you could tell they are over the moon about him.
Thanks guys for allowing me to come into your little sanctuary and trusting me to handle your most precious cargo 🙂 I hope you enjoy the pictures….I had a hard time narrowing down what to post on the blog.
