1 Year Photo Shoot

18 Feb

No, sorry, this isn’t the monthly rundown – still working on that puppy (and the 11 month one, haha). Jennifer Soots Photography, who did our newborn and 6 month shoot as well, came over a couple hours before Parker’s birthday party to take his pictures. We decided to have her come the day of the party so that she would be there to take pictures of the party and the cake smash as well. Even with all the chaos of trying to organize the pictures and the party at the same time I’m so glad we did it this way so that I didn’t have a camera attached to my face the entire day. Below are some of my favorites and I’ll have more included in the rundown post of the party. So happy with how they came out!

Fun Fact: Jennifer arrived to take pictures 15 minutes early and I still hadn’t done my make-up. So I rushed into the bathroom and tried to hurry to pull myself together. Well when I clamped my eyelash curler on my left eyelashes I somehow lost my grip and the eyelash curler flung out of my hands and landed on the floor. I bent down and picked it up and as I went to put it back on my eyelashes I realized there was a huge clump of eyelashes stuck to it. Eric was in the bathroom too and I turned to him all wide eyed and he was like, “are you ok? holy cow, half your eyelashes are gone!” I immediately turned to the mirror and yes, from the middle of my eyelid to the inner corner of my eye every single lash was gone. I was stunned. Stunned because I didn’t know what to do when I was supposed to be taking professional pictures at any minute and stunned at how this whole episode didn’t hurt – like at all. My eye never stung or got red or itchy or anything. If the eyelashes weren’t left on my curler I wouldn’t even have known it had happened. Apparently it was a clean pull – so weird. I went into my bathroom closet and of course I had like 5 pairs of fake eyelashes but zero glue. Luckily I don’t have super lush eyelashes to begin with so after I did my make-up it somehow wasn’t that noticeable (eyeliner really helped) and Jennier joked she would edit in eyelashes on any close up. I swear this would only happen to me!

P’s 6 Month Pictures Part II

19 Aug


















A few more pictures from our 6 month session with Jennifer Soots Photography! Some of my favorites are the close-ups of him on the quilt and the funny fact about that is I was just changing his diaper in between takes when she decided to snap a few. Enjoy! I have one more set to share!

Parker Newborn Shoot Sneak Peek

12 Feb

20120212-042747.jpg

Yesterday Parker had his newborn shoot and besides 4 or 5 open air accidents (on the floor, on his blankets, on mom & dad) he was a champ!

Here is a sneak peek photo our photographer, Jennifer Soots Photography, posted on her Facebook page last night.

As you know, our family loves books/reading so we had to do a little bookworm picture! I’m sure this will elicit an “oh mom,” out of embarrassment later in life, but when he brings home straight A’s he’ll know who to thank!
