All 4

I can't believe I managed to get a picture of all 4 of the kids looking at me!! Anyway, I don't know if this is the best picture in the world but as a mom I just LOVE it! I ordered a hand stamped locket I found on Etsy and had  to get a picture of them to put inside the locket. I will have to post a photo and the link when it comes in. Here they are...

I couldn't manage to get the paci away from Mackenzie. She was crying so hard I had to settle for the pacifier. Whew...she cries a lot. Samuel cried a lot and I think she cries as much or more. Oh least I know they don't stay little that long. So, hopefully it will fly by...the crying part.

My new model....Mackenzie Faith

Well, here she is...Mackenzie Faith. She weighed 8lbs and 5oz and was 18 1/2 inches long. Its a good thing my Dr. induced me early or she might have been 9lbs and 5oz. Since the day we found out our due date Chance has said we were going to have her on his birthday, March 11th and she barely made it. I went in to be induced at 6am and didn't really start having contractions until about 2 in the afternoon. My body reacted pretty slowly to things so by 10pm I was ready for a baby and an epidural. I ended up with an epidural that worked so good I couldn't walk until the next morning. If I didn't have the baby by 12am I would have had to have a C section so there was a little more at risk than missing Chance's birthday. She finally came at 11:39 pm. I hope this doesn't mean she's going t be a procrastinator : ) Here she is....I'm sure there will be more to come.

Winter Sessions....

Here are a few from my winter sessions. I'm wrapping things up and getting ready for Mackenzie. I'm pretty sure the name is going to stick this time since Samuel, Brianna, and Alexis are all calling her least Alexis is attempting to say that long name: ) 

I guess I won't tell a story about each of these since there are so many different people. I had a lot of brave clients this winter. Some of these sessions were really chilly! Thanks for being such good sports!

Oh, yeah and I just had to process this one with the final proofs. I thought this was too cute...look at that lip. In his defense he had just woken up from a nap and it was quite chilly out. 

I don't know if you noticed but I have a new watermark! I had someone at Design Outpost design it for me. I'm thinking when I start back up after maternity leave I'll have a new look to my site. I'm changing my main color from brown to black for what might seem like a silly reason...its really hard to find brown photo packaging. So, I'm just going to change everything and while I'm on maternity leave I'm planning to get a new website, take some time photographing my family, and take some online workshops. 

Next, I attached a picture of my "diaper cake" from a diaper shower my friends Katie, Julie, and Chelsea threw for me. I was so impressed with this cake. I'm sure you've seen them before but this has to be the cutest one : ) You can probably see that everything on the cake is functional. Some of the little decorations are hair clips and pacifier holders. Anyway, the shower was a huge blessing and I'm so thankful to have so many precious friends in my life. God is good!
