Hey everyone…this post is a little scattered so stay with me!
SOOOOO sorry for my absence on this ole blog in the last few weeks. Its wedding season…(and by that I mean Im shooting my 5th in a row this Saturday!!!!) and its been nothing short of craziness around here lately. We have so much to post its not even funny! We have a couples session, maternity session, & 3 weddings to show you all but first…I thought I would share with you all a few pictures of my sweet, beautiful, growing, 100% baby boy! He is officially 2 whole months old as of Sunday and I can NOT believe that time is passing so fast! It makes me so excited and so sad at the same time. And I will tell you this, I have definitely cried at 3 of the 4 weddings I have just shot when they do the mother-son dance. Here’s how it all goes down:
*DJ/Band announces mother-son dance…I pull the camera up to my eye to start shooting
*mother makes son smile and he gives her a big ole hug…my eyes well up and the alligator sized tears start to form…
*son spins mom on the dance floor…I drop the camera to my side and the ugly cry lip quiver thing starts happening…
*I look through the crowd for my sweet husband to smile at him as if to say, “Honey, this is going to be me and Riley one day..” but when our eyes actually meet I realize he is FRANTICALLY waving his arms at me and mouthing ” QUIT CRYING AND TAKE PICTURES!!!!!”…then I snap out of it and finish documenting this sweet dance with mama and her son. 🙂
Whew! Glad I got that off my chest. I promise I am emotionally stable but now I totally get it. I get why parents are super weepy at weddings. I get why mamas will fight to the death with vendors to make sure their daughters wedding day is special. I get why daddys are the best men at their sons weddings. I get it…and I can honestly say that having my sweet little boy has made me love more(in general) AND love what I do more. Its made me treasure the couples who pick us to capture their big, beautiful day. And its made me look even more forward to the future couples I will get to work with and learn…Im soooo ready to hear your love stories and meet your families and give them wonderful, unique, and beautiful images that they will love forever and ever…because I would want this for Riley too.
So, I’ll quit being mushy and get to some pictures. 🙂 The other day we put Ri in his ”little squirt” pj’s…look at the bottom of the feet on these…heheheh I love them!
This is is “hmmm…mom, i dont know if I like this camera in my face thing you do…” look
Alrighty..well…Im off to bed. You guys have a great week and I hope to have our maternity session blogged in the next day or so! Woot!
