In your best Elvis voice, say, “Baby Chunkin’ love”… did you do it??

I don’t have a voice as dreamy as Elvis and I sure as heck don’t have the moves as good as Elvis, but I can not help but belt out an Elvis voice for some reason when I look at this gorgeous baby!

I had recently completed a recent session of that adorable red head baby (LOOK HERE) and I noticed on her momma’s facebook page that that sweet blue eyed babe was sitting with other babies her age. My eye totally zoomed on on her friend and her sweet baby rolls! – ok now say that in a southern voice! Oh I had to get my hands on this baby- so I did what any other baby crazed photographer would do… I facebook stalked the momma and begged for her to come see me so I could get some photo time with her little one. Thankfully- she agreed and didn’t call the cops on me! Seriously, you can totally be my lifetime friend with either food or babies or pay me with food or baby time.

Total off subject but the food comment reminded me of the movie Multiplicity

“I like pizza, steve”multiplicity_6

ok… so focusing back at the subject. I really did have so much fun during this session. Mom was AMAZING and so sweet and even baby K’s sister came along to help and be a part of the day. I really do love babies- every stage of them and being able to capture details of them… well… in a way it makes me speechless…. and in her case, I want to just keep squeezing that baby chunkin’ love.

Babies – of all ages are SO MUCH FUN! For this special session, baby “J” is a baby on the move but all in a fun – good way. So playful and so much fun. I melted at his smile with his strawberry hair and blue eyes – I mean how can one not just melt!

 

For our session together I set up a mock bed filled with soft blankets and pillows for baby “J” to play in. He did keep his daddy busy as the baby wrangler for when baby “J” wanted to escape the scene. Here are some photos of a sneak peek into our session together!

I am not sure why I chose that title for this blog post, except for when I look at these images from this session, my mind yells, “American Made”. There is just something about this family that was just authentic!

I also have to share a little secret. This momma, who I met last year through a business group (she is a Mary Kay Consultant and makes beautiful jewelry) and planned this session to be only the kids- she did not want to do any family images. My clients are the boss and I will of course respect their wishes… except this time.

Let me explain

I was having a great time with these lovely kids and I kind of tricked dad first into getting in some photos with their son- it was just too cute of a moment to pass up… then I told all the kids to jump in with dad…. and then I just had to do it… I made momma jump in for a family picture. SO, yeah, I did a little trickery, but I hope they thought it was worth it- I know the kids will, if not now, when they are older!

Take a sneak peek into our session here in Johnstown Colorado!

Recently I tagged along with hubby – he on his motorcycle and me in the van with all the kiddos, up to Estes Park here in Colorado. It was a beautiful sunny day- just perfect for a little road trip. The drive was relaxing and much needed time with the family.

After we walked around the town for a bit and I watched my son play “photographer”, it is really interesting seeing what they see in photos- and what they actually take photos of! –  our time was out and we needed to head back home. But then I remembered that we were REALLY close to the Stanley Hotel and I have been wanting to see inside there ever since I saw the Shining as a kid. I made the announcement to my kids that we were going to take a quick detour as I really wanted to see if we could get a glimpse inside the hotel. I heard that you had to pay just to even get in the parking lot, so I knew it would be a really quick visit/ drive around.

As we turned on to the loop in front of the hotel, I shrieked like a child! Not only was this place just magnificent, I also saw my first Elk- and a LOT of them! They were just grazing there on the front lawn- not caring about the cars or the people watching them. We drove up a little further to turn around and RIGHT THERE, stood more Elk! I felt like we were in a drive through zoo!
