Kids!

Our friends Jeremy and Ashley’s little flaming redhead, Harland.

And Henry, the 2-year-old..

And Claire Elizabeth, the 3-year-old blond beauty…

The last three are of Jodi and Bob’s precious adopted daughter Maci.  She’s turning three, so we took her to Dawes and I followed her around while she explored nature.  I did her 2-year pics last fall, and just like then, she was not too happy about the camera at first.  So, I play and talk her and eventually she warms up to me and even lets me take a few shots.

Her best smile was for her mama…

Growing

Well, I’ve survived my first “training” wedding of the year!  It was fun but also good to get that out of the way–kind of like that first jump into a swimming pool.  Cold but bracing, and every jump after that is a little bit easier.  Gotta get used to the water!   

The biggest personal benefit, I think, was removing some of my fear of the unknown and realizing I can survive a ten-hour wedding day with not too much wear and tear.   Oh, and now I know that I made a wise choice of shoes–the black leather flats I bought based on their comfort level and relative cuteness wore like a dream–no sore feet or blisters!  Next best thing to slippers.

This whole experience, it turns out, is about so much more than making pretty pictures!  In the process I am learning a whole lot  about myself, as a human being who must interact with other human beings.  Yes, I am having adventures and spreading my wings, but I am continually brought back down to earth by the insights given to me as others reflect my own characteristics back on me!  More on that later…

Spring Chickies

Baby Candice–remember some pictures I took of her last fall?  She is growing up into a lovely spring chicky.  Her headband is made by her mommy, Carrie Spicer!  She will make one or four for you–or just anything else you can dream up.  We are contemplating making tutus and all kinds of hairbands and hats and bows for baby girls…

The little cherub in the fuzzy hat is Willow Grace.  She is modeling a hat made by Dawn Petty, who is also a local crafter and performs magic with her knitting needles!

And last but not least, a real live ballerina! So this is why people have baby girls…

P.S. I am running a Spring Chicky Special for newborns and babies under one year.  From March through May, the cost is $40 for a 30-60 minute session with your baby, and I am creating a special Spring Chicky package on stephanieshawphotography.smugmug.com.  Call me to set up an appointment!  It’s something I wish I had done when my boys were tiny!
