here piggy, piggy…

so, harper lynn, or as we’ve referred to her this week: “swine flu baby” seems to have made a full recovery!  thanks everyone for your prayers, concerns, and the yummy three-bean chili (jjo, you’re awesome!!)!  and thanks to my sweet clients for understanding that i needed to reschedule for a date when we’re minus h1n1!  no one else in the house has any symptoms whatsoever, and we’re all faithfully taking our tamilflu & washing our hands!  i stayed home with hl for several days & just before i started getting cabin fever & seeing twins in our hallway at night, her fever subsided-thank God!!  nanny-sitter ashley came over for a shift with the girls so i could get out of the house to be among the living.  the snow made it easier to be tucked into our home, and andrew came home early to take livi out to play since “swine flu baby” needed to stay in, rest, and be warm to get better.  i was super bummed to have to cancel her durango birthday party, but we’ll surely reschedule it-any excuse to have cake is worth it to me!  here’s her invite that i designed & was totally thrilled to have sent out with coordinating beet colored envelopes.

THANK YOU all for joining me for fall mini-sessions!

micah. :durango, co newborn photographer:

micah is a beautiful newborn boy!  he was completely content while i moved him around, wrapped him in this & laid him on that.  his sweet parents were so relaxed & totally trusted me with him.  even when i wanted to lay him on a dirty old tire outside they were totally excited for it, see…

well, precious little noah is basically a toddler now, but i’m not sure i can let go…i think of him as a baby still i guess!!!  i got to photograph him at one-day-old & he’s been a special little guy to me since that day!  i got to spend a fun evening with his super cute, stylish family and we had so much fun in the beautiful fall weather, see…
