A photo of my beautiful hair and makeup artist, Shanna Campbell.

 

Yay! It’s Friday already after a short, 4 day work week! The weather is perfect and I hope you’re ready to enjoy a fun filled, relaxed weekend. This is a short, sweet blog wishing you a wonderful mini vacation this Saturday and Sunday.

If you’re thinking about a photography session for yourself, your family, or your teen girl, I recommend professional hair and makeup. After all, you’re going to want to look your absolute best in your photos, and there’s no better way to get that look than to be in the hands of a skilled professional.

The photos above and below are of my beautiful hair and makeup artist, Shanna Campbell. She is a truly outstanding professional and she’s also a lot of fun to work with. She is an expert at up dos and all other hair styles and she’s very creative if you’re looking for something new. She also understands how to work with makeup to enhance the beautiful features you already have. You’ll be in the very best hands with her. For more information about Shanna and to see her price list, please go to my website. You’ll find her under INVESTMENT.

Wishing everyone a wonderful Memorial Day.

I didn’t have a lot of extra time today, but wanted to quickly post to my blog. These photos are of beautiful baby Lenyx who was also featured in last week’s blog. She has changed so much in one week! She is getting more beautiful by the minute. I hope you enjoy the photos. :-)

Two photos, one with mother holding her just born baby and one with the just born baby crying Just born baby, a series of three photos.Childbirth photography, these are photos of the family, one shows dad kissing mom and the other shows the grandmother with mom and baby.

 

Wow! What an amazing experience! Yes, I was there in the birthing room at Mission Hospital to photograph this childbirth.

Isn’t she lovely? Just a gorgeous, perfect baby girl! And her mother looks so beautiful right after delivering her. What a wonderful privilege it was to be present at the birth of this little angel. Mother and baby are both doing beautifully. As you can see in the weighing photo, she weighed 7 pounds 12 ounces. Just so you know, she was 19 inches long. So far she has curly, light brown hair. Just adorable!

Pictured also are the father kissing mom and the grandmother with her newest grandchild.

I went back to the hospital the next day to photograph the baby on day two. She was not quite one day old when these photos were taken. I wanted to take her home with me, but mom and dad know where I live. Yikes! :-) She’s a sweet little pea in the pod, so content, so feminine. She wants to peek at the world and so far she seems to like what she sees. You can see the one day old photos below. Don’t miss them!

This was my first childbirth photography session. I am hoping to also photograph a natural childbirth in a private home or midwifery facility. If you know anyone who might have an interest, please pass along my information. I am offering free photography and free digital files to the first person having a natural childbirth who takes advantage of it.
