Hunter is that little boy who you fully expect to pull a frog out of his pocket. And Hunter’s mom is that mom who wouldn’t even be phased by said frog. And Hunter’s dad is that dad who taught him that frogs belong in your pocket. Once again, meet Hunter:
I was trying to think of a perfect whitty title that would sum up Greyson’s story, but I didn’t come up with one. Neither will I go into the whole story of how I was lucky enough to be photographing Greyson earlier today. I’ll just say this: Greyson almost didn’t make it. But his mommy & daddy (and a huge team of supporters) serve an awesome God and their prayers for Greyson were answered. After 22 days in the NICU, Greyson is home with his mommy and daddy and is a daily reminder to us that God is truly good.
Here are just a few of my favorites from Greyson’s session today…
Pardon my old person phrase for just a moment, but this little girl was “as smart as a whip!” (Just exactly how smart IS a whip?) You’d never believe that she just turned 3! It took her a few minutes to warm up to me, but once she did she was so much fun! Ah, to be 3 again.
Tish has the most adorable baby belly! And poor Tish, I could tell she was uncomfortable, but she did everything I asked to do! Such a trooper! And Daniel was so good to her- he always opened up the car door for her and was patient with her. I’m looking forward to meeting the rest of their family!
Congratulations Daniel & Tish!
I called them last Friday evening and said “The weather’s great! You wanna do your family pictures tonight?” And they were ready in 75 minutes. A family of four! I couldn’t get MYSELF ready for family pictures in 75 minutes, muchless 2 children and a husband! Hope, as usual, you are amazing. Here are a few of my personal favorites from their session…
Motherhood is filled with so many bittersweet moments. I love to see his smile, and I love that he can have a conversation with me about things like what ingredients are in pancakes, and of course I’m overwhelmed with pride when I hear him reading words (after all, he just turned 4!), and it’s so satisfying when I see him make a good decision all on his own…and yet…I miss the newborn moments that I was too tired to enjoy, I can barely remember his 6-month-old giggle, and oh how I long for the days when he didn’t challenge me! Like I said, it’s all bittersweet. Anyway, my little boy turned 4 over the winter and we finally got around to his pictures this past week.
