Curls and Baby Gates

Ella is fifteen months old in these photos. Our house is now seriously babyproofed with gates and a play yard--which Ella sometimes likes to play in and sometimes wants to escape.

Mommy, I don't feel so good

Even when she's not feeling her best, Ella still has bright, beautiful eyes--and I still can't resist taking her picture.

At The Beach in Stormy Weather

Today we had a photo shoot at the beach, which sounds great for spring, but sometimes (like today) means stormy weather.

The family was full of love and smiles despite the cold, and we had tons of fun for our hour-long session.

Here's a sample of our morning:

Too many pictures of Ella

I thought there would be a chance I was taking too many pictures of Ella, so I packed my camera away and go at her with my cell phone as though it were sufficient.

But then I found this blog, Enjoying the Small Things, and a woman posts photos of her children and their environment every day with what she writes about, so I thought, "Yes!"

I'm going to post a few old photos of her, but my camera is coming back out with a vengeance, baby.

It helps, too, that she's reaching an age where I don't have to hold her all the time. Even at the park she crawls around on the playground. I have to be careful big kids don't trample her, but I can do that from behind the lens, right?

Baby I'm Yours!

With my new station in life as a mother, I have added babies to my repertoire of photography subjects.

This year I had the pleasure of photographing my friend's son, Alex. We did a little photo shoot in my apartment, where I maintain a little studio (also known as Ella's nursery). Next week we get to do a family photo shoot at the beach/pier/park. I can't wait! Alex has the most adorable blue eyes and crooked little smile.

Roaming Rome

The photos are finally here--believe it or not this album is the abbreviated version of 927 photos is now 215 photos. Here are five for a taste:

The trip was a wonderful business-related surprise--Justin made a presentation about the research he has been doing for the past five or six years with Hal Hoffman, and I roamed around with my camera every day taking photos of everything I could capture during our four days there.
