This past Saturday, I had a newborn photography session with 2 month old Callie and her parents, Heather and Mark. I met Heather at a baby shower I attended several weeks ago, and we hit it off right away. I gave her my card (actually -- I wrote down my web address b/c I didn't have any with me!), and I was really excited when she called me the next day to schedule a session.
There is something about black and white photos for a newborn baby. Although Heather and Mark's image CD will contain both the black and white and the color versions, I decided to post all black and white because, well, I just LOVE them! Black and white images are emotional, pure, and timeless, and I thought that it fit especially well for these images -- images focused on a moment in time.
Heather and Mark, thank you so much for welcoming me into your home to take pictures of your beautiful new daughter (and your adorable dog Kira too!). I hope you enjoy the little preview! ~Kristine
What a gorgeous baby girl!
I am a sucker for babies in hats!
Whew - that was hard work! ;)
Now that I'm well into in the honeymoon stage of my pregnancy - the 2nd trimester ROCKS - Scott and I have been doing some traveling and visiting friends. This morning I was going through some of our personal pictures from the past two weekends, and I couldn't resist blogging these three little cuties. There are babies everywhere! Plus I have 6 pregnant friends right now - it seems like there is a new announcement every week lately - so Baby Girl Pringle is going to have lots of little friends. :)
Baby Russell is 10 months and he is almost walking already! We saw him take a step or two yesterday.
Baby Hadley is 5 months old, and she is the happiest baby ever.
And Baby Kadins is 1 month old today. Happy 1 month birthday Kadins!
Stay tuned for more adorable baby girl pictures from a shoot I had yesterday afternoon.
Tonight Scott and I had our 20 week ultrasound, and we found out that we are expecting a GIRL!
*For those who didn't know, or for our prospective clients visiting our blog for the first time, we are due on May 29th. We will be doing lifestyle photo shoots this winter and spring, and we will begin our wedding spree on June 21st. Next month we will be updating our website, and I will continue to blog weekly - so stay tuned for some images from recent shoots, some funny behind-the-scenes stuff, and some of our favorite never-blogged-before images.*
Despite having a few boy dreams, I had a feeling we were going to be seeing pink, because most people I know with girls were really sick during their first trimesters and/or had babies with fast heartbeats while in utero. Baby Pringle's heartbeat has ranged from 150 to 165, and wow was I sick! I know these are old wives tales, but at least for me and most of my friends, they turned out to be true. I have loved every minute of this experience - even the nausea - but now the real fun begins...picking a name and designing the nursery.
The ultrasound was amazing. We got to see the different parts of her brain, the chambers of her heart, her kidneys, her spine, her hands and feet, and her sweet little face. She kept putting her hands up like she was waving to us. It was the cutest thing, and words can't begin to describe how much we love her already. We are so blessed that everything is going well and that Baby P is healthy.
Here is her 3D image. She weighs almost a pound.
She's too big to fit in one image, but according to books, she is somewhere between 6 and 10 inches long now.
It's hard to believe that just a few months ago, she looked like this.
Last week I had the opportunity to work with Andrew, a talented artist and model from Los Angeles, California. Well, like most of those who live there, he's not really from LA - he actually grew up right here in central PA and his art has been featured on the gallery walks in Harrisburg. I know his Mom and Dad from work, and I was delighted when they asked me to do some portfolio pictures for the second year in a row. Truth be told, I was also a little nervous, as it seems that Andrew has been quite busy since I last took his pictures. He now has a new agent, and he has recently been auditioning for all kinds of jobs, including some screen tests for some of the best shows on TV!
Andrew, congratulations on all of your success, and I hope that 2008 brings great things for you! Enjoy the mini preview. ~Kristine
