I have loved watching this family grow and capturing some precious moments for them. You may remember from last spring when Ramona & Dave were expecting #2. You can see her maternity pics here and here.
Well, Baby Maya is now 8 months old! Her big bro David remembered me from last time and even showed me his belly again as soon as I walked in the door. No baby in there anymore ;)
Meet sweet, little Maya:
She was very serious at first, but she eventually loosened up a bit and came out of her shell ;)
Just trying a little different look here:
I took her big bro, David's, 8 month pics in this same chair.
There's the happy girl!
Ramona, it was so great to see you & David again and to finally meet your baby Maya. Thank you so much!
Do you remember that proverbial "something in the water" I was talking about? Well, apparently it is no joke. And I drank it. That's right. You can add me to list of every Tom, Dick and Harry that I know that all have buns in the oven :)
As you can imagine, we are over the moon. The part I am not so looking forward to is the suicidal nausea I suffered with my pregnancy with Brynn. I practically had to be talked down from the ledge. My doctor told me I will be fine as long as I keep snacking all day and night to keep my blood-sugar level up. Normally, I am a three-meal-a-day-kind-of-girl, but I am following doctor's orders and I am snacking like I have never snacked before. But, I can still feel it...it's lurking...bubbling under the surface...waiting for me to let my guard down so it can rear its ugly, green head. I may gain 100 pounds this time, but I am going to feel good, darnnit.
Brynn was so excited when we told her the news, that she actually asked me to take her picture. That was a first. I think she just liked her funky outfit she put together all by herself. Needless to say, she is pumped to be a big sis. Can you tell?
I'll try not to complain to all of you too much about how yucky I feel. I am really hoping this pregnancy is going to be super different from my first one. I would so love to actually enjoy it. Truth be told, it is so obviously worth it otherwise no one would do this ;)
Everytime I pick up my camera, my heart starts beating a little faster.
I am a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP), which is not that common...that test nearly kicked my butt. I am also a proud member of Professional Photographer of America (PPA), Professional Photographers of America - Northern Illinois (PPANI) and Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI).
I am a hugger. I am shorter than people think. I try keeping life simple. I love home improvement projects. I love a spontaneous dance party and I keep music playing in our home 24/7. I eat more cereal than Jerry Seinfeld. I call Geneva, Illinois home.
Drop me a line if you saw something that made you smile.
