My Week With the S Family

One of my Project 2012 weekly blog posts featured my time throughout the week with the S family, while dad and mom were at the hospital having a baby, and again so dad could go back to the hospital a few days later to bring mom and baby home.  I photographed most of my time with these four wonderful children.  What an amazing, wacky, fun time we had together!  And our time together ended on such a sweet note, when baby sister came home.  So, in pictures, here is my week.

Welcoming Little Miss C

The below is a beautiful shot of mom.  I can't believe she just had a baby; she's still glowing!  I know the picture is blurry, but this is the only shot I have of her.  I didn't even take it, since I was too busy holding/adoring Little Miss C.  Throughout the week, I had let all the kids (except little E) use my camera.  I kept the settings on manual mode, too, and they took some great shots.  Miss K (big sister in the above image) is, in my opinion, a budding photographer, and used my camera the most.  Although her mom was slightly alarmed at her just picking up my camera and shooting, Miss K took the below shot.  So don't think about the blurriness of a shot captured by a six-year-old!  Yes, six.  Not bad, huh?

Up next--photo session with Little Miss C.  I can't wait to share the images; they turned out simply beautiful!  :D

  1. I guess I always thought that we were the only ones who used a pizza cutter for our pancakes.
