I received the annual stats report from wordpress, it should be no suprise that Donia’s photos were looked at more than any other image posted during 2014. I think that her adorable little face is worthy of a second look (if not divine worship) and a great final post for 2014. I like Donia explored my (many) environments, smiled at strangers, giggled, laughed and was surprised by my luck during 2014
we have been in transit for the last couple of day, moving from Paris to Malaga, we are tired from riding the rails, dragging our bags through train stations, eating fast food, and sleeping in small hotels rooms! But we are here now, ready to settle in for a month in one location, ready to celebrate all the gifts of 2014, and look forward into 2015.
We want to wish everyone all the very best in 2015, we hope that this is the year you make your dreams come true.
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.
“Sugar and Spice and all things nice, that’s what little girls are made of…..”
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.
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.
