I love newborn babies, okay, I love all babies…

And I have great admiration for professional baby photographers. My wonderful friends Brett and Amrita proud new parents allowed me an opportunity to take a few pictures of their beautiful baby girl.

I was over to visit Amrita, Brett and Miya on Monday and of course to take a few pictures. Miya was a sleep when I first arrived and Brett was holding her in his lap. She had just eaten and was dozing peacefully.  It was a wonderful afternoon and I can hardly wait to get through the photos that were taken.

 This one was fun, but only take two attempts, little Addilyn tipped over the first time! On the plus side it won’t be long before she rolls over all by herself.  The big girls Skylar and Alexa were perfect, they remembered to watch me, not the baby, so I could get the shot.

Saskatchewan Rough Rider Fan – Addilyn

A baby will make love stronger, days shorter, nights longer, bank balance smaller, home happier, clothes dirty, the past forgotten, and the future worth living for – unknown. 

We first met Addilyn before Christmas, she is now about 5 months old, and has clearly made some major decisions about how she will live her life – afterall cheering for the Saskatchewan Rough Riders is usually a life long obsession.  Okay maybe, just probably, she had some family influence, I think it was Grandma Carolynne that bought the jersey, and the socks seem to be a big hit.

Carolynne brought the whole family by a while ago for photos, so we will have more photos during the week, they are almost ready.

I love photographing babies, and visiting with the new parents, it is such an exciting time. It always brings a smile to my face when I get the opportunity to spend time with the new family.  Thanks Cameron and Jes, your photos will be ready shortly.

I have hit a wonderful time in my life, my children are all grown up and they are off enjoying their lives. Yes they visit, and we do things together, but I don’t have the day-to-day worries and work that I had as a parent of young children. Their friends, have also grown up, and this is where it gets good, they are getting married and having babies of their own.

Addilyn is part of that next generation.  Spending time and taking photo of this beautiful little baby gave me a chance to have a visit with Cameron and Jessilyn, who I haven’t seen in quite some time.  I am new to photographing babies, and it seems to take longer than it should.  Babies need changing, and feeding, and kept warm, but not too warm, and they are not always wanting to laying just the way we want them, but I do my best.  All this extra time give us a chance to chat.

Thanks Cameron and Jessilyn for your time, it was wonderful, almost as good as the photos! more to come.

Happy Friday to everyone, I hope Zak’s smile brings a smile to your face.

Zakary at Riverside Park, September 3, 2012

Six month old,  Zakary at Riverside Park, it is amazing how fast the time goes by when I am with children, it is so much fun watching them.

Yesterday was a great day, while it was a little windy, the sun was shining and I had a chance to visit with Kim and her little man Zak who is now 6 months old.  He is a cutie. His little red T-shirt even proclaimed “local cutie” so appropriate.  It is amazing to me how much babies change in the first year. Checking back through the blog you can see just how much he has grown.

We spent a couple of hours sitting in the grass, visiting while making funny noises all in an effort to get Zakary to look at us and smile! He was quite fasciated by the grass, less so by us! I don’t know about him, but I had so much fun I haven’t stopped smiling, and I am already looking forward to next time.
