To all the mother’s, have a blessed and happy weekend. I can’t believe River is 7 months old. He is a bright light in our lives, he teaches me deeper meanings of joy and he is the reason my heart flutters awake every morning.
I moved his crib so we could use the wall for a little shoot. One of River’s nursery features used the line “A River in a Forest”, I loved it and that was my theme for his 7 month shoot. Although…more like a River Owl in a Forest. Dan has started calling him River Bird or referencing him as such. For example, “there goes River Bird again” or “I hear the River Bird”. River has taken to squealing and making bird like sounds, especially in the morning. We like waking up to the sounds of little River Bird.
Life has been flying by. I’ve been snapping away but have had little time to edit my own pictures. I just sat down this evening in hopes to get a few done. These are a few of my favorites.
There are two things that calm River down if he starts to get fussy (which, he rarely does): Music & Going Outside. He prefers live music, but the iPod is acceptable as long as there is also dancing.
Bath time is another favorite past time. In fact, I should probably say that there are actually three things that calm him down. Bath time can fix all problems.
He loves his Daddy.
I think this is quite possibly my most favorite picture of all times. I will be printing a copy for my desk.
A few quick housekeeping things… There has been a little confusion about the new family session donation policies and I am going to tweak it a bit. I knew there would be some kinks to work out… I’m going to raise the donation amount for the session but the session will now include the digital files. However, I will only be taking a few donation family sessions per month so it will be first come first serve. I’ll be updating the details soon. My heart really is to give back, but I have also learned time and time again that my time is valuable-esspecially now that I have a little one. Thank you for understanding!
