The First 20

While not the type of photos I typically take, this is a project I've been working on for a while. 20 months to be exact. Each month we take a photo of Alexandra sitting in the same chair to see how much she has grown. It's so crazy how much she has and hasn't changed. I think it's pretty safe to say my baby has become a kid. When the hell did that happen?

Almost a year ago I had the chance to practice shoot my niece Isabella as a newborn. I still can't believe how much she has, and hasn't, changed since way back then. She is growing into the little princess her mommy hoped for, but has enough spunk to keep it real with her big brother.

If I could go back in time I would have taken my flash photography class before this shoot. There were so many shots I missed because I didn't know how to harness the power of flash. I am happy though that I was able to hide her diaper rash and blood test heel pricks. I remembered my sister mentioning them but wanted to make sure to capture the cuteness of a baby's bottom and tiny little feet.

While I will always love the "princess and the pea" shot, I think my favorite is one of the last when she finally opens her eyes and gave me a look of "who are you and why are you so close to my face".

Introducing Mr. & Mrs. Robert Carrier

Hard to believe it's been three years already, but time flies when you're having fun. The next stop down memory lane is my brother Bubba's wedding to the fabulous Miss Cassie. We were lucky enough to have dinner with them recently and it was so nice to see that the love in their eyes from their wedding day is still there today.

On a photography related note, it was also interesting for me to see how much my skills have grown since then. I still love these pictures, but can see where today I would have done better. One of these days I may actually be brave enough to take pictures of people I don't know. Until then, I'll just have my fun harassing the family and trying not to make the kids go blind.
