I have a new niece! My sister really put me to work with this last baby of hers! Maternity, delivery and newborn photos. She owes me a good dinner and alot of babysitting!
The maternity session was photographed in this patch of trees that I always drive by when bringing my daughter to school in Stillwater. Its just this patch of wildlife behind a church that is so awesome. To the right is a bunch of tall pine trees and to the left is a field the the sun sets behind. There are so many awesome spots just like this in the Twin Cities! Her maternity session was COLD and SNOWY. If she wasn't my sister, I maybe would have felt a tad bad that she was half naked and I was super bundled up LOL!
The delivery story is kind of a funny one. After 41 long weeks, she finally got induced on a Tuesday.. I told her I would come and photograph the delivery.. but she spent the whole darn day just laying around in the hospital dilating! So finally she calls around 430 and says it will probably happen soonish. I had an appointment at 7pm.. so I told her to tell that baby that I was coming down around 5pm and she had better choose to pop on out of there by 6:30! ... Mira arrived at 6:22pm =) ... oh! and I cut the cord
Mira did such a good job at her newborn session. I brought my daughter along so she could play with her cousins while I played with Mira. Baby Mira is a little grazer! She never ate until she was totally full.. just a little bit here, and a little bit there.. just enough to get by for awhile. But otherwise she was a dream to work with. Cant say the same for those sisters of hers though!! LOL! Clearly this auntie may pick on them too much cause they far from took me serious! They had the goofiest looking faces for me =)
Take a look at some amazing shots from all her sessions!
