View From the Couch

Wednesday, June 29, 2011

I've been sick the past few days. Home alone. With two wild boys. I really needed some downtime today. Actually, I really needed it yesterday. But, the boys didn't oblige. I got some today instead, and believe me... I wasn't complaining. E had fallen asleep on the couch, so I plopped down beside him and finally put on "Eat Pray Love". As I was watching, I looked down to admire my beautiful boy's face, then hopped up to get my new 1.4 lens and see what it could do. I'm obsessed with his eyelashes, so I love this.

And then I looked up at the screen and saw this, and thought, at that moment, I couldn't agree more! It's not often I get to plop on the couch, and do, essentially, nothing!

Now that the kids are peacefully in bed, I'm gonna go watch the rest of that movie ;)

The McGowans - Dracut, MA Family Photographer

Sunday, June 26, 2011

Meet the McGowans, one of my favorite families in the whole wide world, and some of my dearest friends. We had so much fun during this session. For two boys who really aren't big fans of having their photos taken, I can't believe the amount of adorable shots we got. I just love the energy in these, and how you can see the transition from sweet, cooperative smiles to wild and crazy boys. I may be wrong, but I think I see a super-hero in one of these ;)

Little Miss A - Dracut, Ma Newborn Photographer

Friday, June 17, 2011

So, since I've had my photography business going for almost a week now, I feel it's time to start doling out business advice. If you are in the process of starting your photography business, the first thing to do is talk to your neighbors, and convince them to have a baby just in time for your business to open.

Okay, maybe that's not exactly how it happened. But, how lucky am I, to be able to launch my business with a beautiful newborn girl who happens to live conveniently across the street? And, is the daughter of two very agreeable parents, and very dear friends, who let me barge into their home with a butt-load of gear? Seriously!

This little beaut was about 10 days old when we took these. She stayed awake longer than she ever had in her 10 days of life, because, you know, I wanted her to sleep ;) But, finally, there was one big yawn, followed by one peacefully sleeping baby. We even got a little smile out of her :)

Reading in Bed

Wednesday, June 8, 2011

One morning, while I tried to steal a few more minutes of rest, the boys sat on the bed looking through the set of Beatrix Potter books that were mine as a child. The light was so pretty, and they looked so sweet, it was actually enough to drag my butt out of bed, and downstairs, to get the camera. Of course, once E saw it he took off, but my little guy let me have some fun. I'm glad he did, because this first one is one of my favorites I have of him thus far!

This one just cracks me up!  Look at his little book holster! Ha!
