Happy New Year! Although I’m not big on New Year’s resolutions, I do like to begin a new year by reflecting on the previous year and what I would like to see change, how I would like to see myself grow, and what things I would like to accomplish in the coming year. New beginnings are such a blessing. Infused with hope, a new year, much like a new day, extends to us the opportunity to begin anew. A fresh start. A clean slate.
It’s also a time to reflect, and boy oh boy do I have a ton to be thankful for in this past year. John and I celebrated our 2 year wedding anniversary in July, we made it out to San Diego twice, I attended WPPI’s (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) convention in March, we bought our first home, spent a few days with John’s sweet, sweet grandparents in south Georgia, shopped at our local farmer’s market, prayed together, attended our favorite Friday night wine tasting, ate delicious food, caught my first fish, enjoyed great conversations with each other and close friends, and found many reasons to laugh together. Like I said, so much to be thankful for.
And speaking of life’s blessings and new beginnings, let me introduce to you this adorable bundle of joy that I had the pleasure of photographing a few weeks ago. Meet William everyone. He is four and a half months old and the apple of his parents’ eyes. This was a particularly special shoot for me because William’s dad and my John are first cousins. It was kind of a last minute thing, but the lighting was dreamy and William was happy as a clam.
Kathleen, the beautiful and radiant new mother. LOVE!!
Oh my goodness. I just can’t get over the toes!!!
Oh to be a baby again when tummy rolls are actually cute!!!
I absolutely love the picture on the left. Doesn’t he look just like a little bear?!
Of course I had to include a shot with William’s favorite toy giraffe, Sophie.
How big is William? So big!!
Kathleen and Ramsay: Thank you for sharing your little William! John and I are so excited to be a part of your journey together and to watch him grow up over the years. We’re looking forward to the day when he can join the Conger Classic!
