First off, this is the BEST family. I love them. They are so good to me and always think of me first. And they are so in love. Each one of them with everyone else. I have posted several photos from this session already, but really, it was such a fun session and the photos are so beautiful because there is just so much love, joy, and happiness here. And the children are pretty cute, too. And mom and dad are also gorgeous:) I am so happy they came to Boulder to do photos with me and I hope you guys come back again next year! Maybe with a new baby…? That’s just a hint, I just want to see you have another one:)
So I am feeling MUCH better. Healthy and good and way too thin but that is not the worst problem to have. I tell myself I look like a gorgeous model and that makes me feel better about it. It is nice in a way, because my illness makes me not want to eat. At all. I have no appetite. It just isn’t there and when I eat I have to make myself, which is not often. So I do a lot of protein smoothies and Green Machines. And the only food I actually like eating right now is oatmeal and yogurt, and that is good for my tummy, so I have that going for me. Seriously, am I a Zen master at always looking at the positive of everything or what? I heard a quote recently by Wayne Dyer:
“Loving people live in a loving world.
Hostile people live in a hostile world.
That’s my motto for the moment. Choosing the world that I live in. It is a great feeling.
Ok, so I have done a few shoots with this family and it is always fun to break it down with links so you guys can see the photos from all their previous family sessions (and one commercial photography shoot).
1 year of Elodie
Commercial Photography shoot (Holly was totally pregnant for these and you can’t even tell! I gained 55lbs with Amelia)
Maternity Photos (I love these, some of my very favorite pregnancy photos in my portfolio)
Incredibly stunning Elodie (this is from this past family photo shoot-I love the wind blowing back her hair like we staged it with a fan, yet we did not. I am totally serious. No fan.)
Gabriel and Daddy loving each other and having fun (also from this last family session-just a series of the same exact photo yet each photo tells its own unique story about the two of them)
I thought there were more blog posts but it is too late to look for them. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I am going to bed now, at 10:30pm, what do you think of that?
Ok, lots of fun photography family shoots coming up! But the thing I am MOST excited about is a birth I am photographing at the end of the month. Birth photography is such a passion of mine, and I really wish more people valued it. I give a super duper discount for photographing births just because I love it so much. I am also a doula, which I think helps me capture the raw emotion of it all, you know? You should see my birth photos of Amelia by photographer Kim Rodgers, they are stunning.
Maybe more tomorrow, we shall see.
