Wrapping up my pregnancy series. I wanted to take a picture with him around three days old but I was just too exhausted to set everything up. I did manage to take a few on his two week birthday and I’m glad I did because he already seems bigger to me. Now I’m going to put all 36 photos in a book for him, and get my finished tutorial on these up before it arrives!

You know when you’ve got a to-do list a mile long, and you keep putting it off again and again and again?

Well that’s sorta been what I’ve been doing for oh… Six months or so, with a video project I started for a beautiful family who had just had a homebirth.

They volunteered to let me come over and film some of their first moments as new parents less than 48 hours after their son was born. I’m calling it my Fresh 48 project. I hope to do more of these as well as birth and lifestyle family videos in the future, but I needed some awesome guinea pigs so I could show what I can do.

Harvey was born in June, I finished this project yesterday, just past my personal December 31st deadline. Better late than never right? The cool thing is he’s now six month old and this video gave his mama a bit of baby fever. … As well as myself. Which is good considering I’m getting my own little thang in three months (EEEP!)

So if you want baby fever too, watch this:

Don’t want baby fever? Well, that’s too bad cause this post is all about the cute newborns I’ve been around lately.

Another photo project I started AND finished in less than a week (GO ME!) was my first newborn session for a coworker. I did her maternity photos a couple of months ago and was happy to test out my new Christmas lens on her baby born 12-12-12!

Here’s a few of my favorite photos from the session:

And so there you have it. My sister-in-law also had her son this week. So I have a freaking adorable nephew now! They are in North Dakota though so I won’t get to meet him for a minute.

Needless to say, I had a bit of babies overload this week. But it was fantastic. I’m all revved up and ready to snuggle my own newborn again. I also wrapped up all of my pending projects and now I can focus on new ones, and have fun with my own.

I’m only four days into the new year and this doing whatever the eff I want thing is going awesome. Apparently this week I feel like being productive. Last night (tonight?) I made homemade strawberry banana ice cream with Lil’ J, then watched some Desperate Housewives while pigging out on pizza (I just got Netflix… I know I know, I’m the last person on Earth) And pregnancy insomnia kept me up all night to edit photos and write this lovely post for all to read. Pray I don’t pass out at my desk at work today, that would be embarrassing.
