Grey the Fat-head

I’m sure I’ve told the story how that is the nickname my youngest got from his big brother when he was a baby because he had a big head and no hair.  ‘Fathead’ has, over the past 8 years, become a term of endearment in our family, and I affectionately use it today to describe Grey.  I haven’t seen him since shortly after his birth, and he turned 6 months last week.  Look at this face:










 And that is without a smile.  Prepare to melt:










Is he the sweetest or what?  And I had the priveledge of meeting Grammy Elaine today, and we got a great shot of the two of them together:

















Grey is also blessed with a terriffic Mommy (who always feeds me chocolate cake or something yummy she’s made) who I’m sure had we met in elementary school I would have been fast friends with.  So here are the two of them together sharing quite a laugh:









You guys are such a pleasure to work with…thanks for choosing me to capture your growing family…


Welcome, Kendall

Yesterday was my first visit with the Rawson’s.  Becky & Jeff just welcomed their first child, Kendall, a couple weeks ago.  They received my service as a shower gift (what a great idea!) and they were awesome.   Becky had given Kendall a little snack before I came, but once we started, she decided she was still hungry.  So, once her tummy was full, she was a very willing subject.  Look at this sweet face:










Becky’s mom had given her a bag of her childhood toys, so we worked them into a few shots.  (Notice the Rolf doll…he is actually a puppet, and if only he would have fit in my camera bag…DARN!  And isn’t it a  shame our kids won’t know the Muppet Show??):










Look at this girl already in love with her Daddy:

















And I love this wedding ring shot:










It was so great to meet you guys!  Can’t wait to capture your girl as she grows…  🙂

Luke & Zack

On Wednesday I went to see the Mazzuca boys.  These two are growing like weeds…just about sitting up on their own, jumping around in their bouncers…happy as clams. 










Here is Zack:










And his partner in crime, Luke:









These two are also dealing with a condition called plagiocephaly, which is abnormal flattening on the back of a baby’s head.  Luke has had the condition from in utero, then both boys had acid reflux which worsened Luke’s and created Zack’s because they slept in their car seats often in the first three months.  Also, they did not enjoy tummy time and therefore were on their backs more often.  So they were fitted with corrective helmets at the Star Cranial Center of Excellence in Columbia, MD, and now they have very nice, round heads.  (That sounds funny…but I’m not really trying to be… :))  But the Star Center was wanting some photos of the boys for literature and displays, so we took some with their helmets:









So hopefully, this week will be their last with the helmets.  They wear them almost all day, so it may be an adjustment to not have them.  But all is well…

It was great to see you guys again!
