Sneak Peek: A Fall Full of Photo Shoots!

This Fall was C-R-A-Z-Y busy with photo shoots.
From October until December every weekend was busy with a photo shoot.
I told myself I wouldn't do any photo shoots after Thanksgiving, but we had a lot of rain in November, so some of them had to be rescheduled into December.
I had 5 photo shoots in 5 days the first week of December.
It was a lot of fun, but a lot of work
(especially on top of teaching & taking care of the girls)
That is why I am just relishing in our unscheduled time this week.
Today is our 3rd straight day of pajama/crafting/baking/not leaving the house.
I love it :)

Here are some sneak peaks of the sessions I had this Fall:

The E Family:
How cute are these kids?

The V Family:
Isn't Baby Keith precious?

*****************************

The N Family:
These 2 boys have LOTS of energy!

*****************************

The N Family:
Such sweet boys:

*****************************

The J Family:
This little guy is SO adorable!!!

*****************************

My friend Kristin asked me to photograph the birth of her daughter and it worked out well because she was 4 days late & delivered her on Veterans Day (which meant I didn't have to go to school for 2 days).

Can I just say I LOVE photographing births? This was my 3rd time & it is amazing every time.

Moments after she was born:
Sweet Baby Tatum:

The Y Family:
Maddie & Mommy:

My friend Heather's kids:

(I also had the privilege of photographing his birth in August)

The C Family:
Ashton is such a BUSY little boy, this photo shoot was a workout! :)

The H Family:

The M Family:
These were also Emerson's 1 year pictures!

Newborn pictures for Baby Caleb:
I love this one:
Welcome, Baby Caleb!
Behind the scenes....Dad was concerned Caleb was too cold, so he busted out the hair dryer to keep him warm. Hysterical.
