Newborn photos

Sorry for my absence.  Taking care of Caleb has seriously kept me from doing much else.  I've really loved this time with him and wouldn't trade it.  I'm a little ready for a schedule but don't want to leave him.  Can't I just take him with me to work?

When Caleb was 6 days old, the wonderful Emily Brandt came to our house to do newborn photos.  Oh, how I love them!  At first, Caleb wouldn't go to sleep and he refused to lie on his tummy (which he continues to do making tummy time fussy time!).  She kept saying, however, that he had great awake we just went with it!

It's really neat to watch a newborn session.  There is definitely an art to it.  Lots of pillows, blankets, heating pad, heaters, and other props.  She brought some hats, blankets, boxes, and crowns.
 I just had a sweet gown I wanted him to wear,
an Alabama helmet hat,
 and a blanket that my grandmother made for me when I was a baby.  We were able to use it all for some wonderful shots.
We even got to use the project I made for Caleb's room!
Of course, Kate got in on the action, too.  Emily said she needs her to be her model!  Ha! 
She kept wanting to help which made her upset because we just needed quiet, but she loves Caleb so much she just wants to be near him, touch him, and watch him!  So blessed!
  David got her dressed after picking her up from school; then he played with her outside.  He was really tired after but I appreciated it a lot!  (Kate loves her Daddy, too!)
This whole time has been a learning experience for me.  It might drive us crazy sometimes,
but David has been great to help me and be sure I get some relaxation time.  My hero!
We got some great family pictures.  Then Emily waited and waited and waited...and we finally got it.  A smile!!!

With our package, we get a jump drive with the edited images and the copyright to print and web publish the photos.  I love that we can order however I want. 
Emily will be coming back when Caleb is 6 months old.  I can't wait!!!  If you need a photographer in MS who is great and reasonably priced, give Emily a call at ekb Photography.  She's great with kids, too...Kate loves her because she brings a harmonica!
Thanks for capturing our family, Emily!
