Jack Owen & Lucia

August 22, 2011

Photographing babies is always so touching to me, and having the opportunity to work with twins makes it that much more amazing and special. Jack Owen and his sweet sister Lucia were so precious to work with. When one got fussy, we would just snuggle them together, and they would settle right in, happy and comforted by one another’s presence. Their connection is so strong and beautiful. The last image shown just wipes me out.

Now that all three boys are back in school and the renovation project is settling in (still not done but getting there!), I’m finally able to focus on catching up on the Bella Blog, and I’m so happy to finally share so many of the Sessions that have touched my heart over these past several months!!
The first posting will answer what is now the age old question of which color the dots in the nursery would be (Pink or Blue?). Meet sweet Gavin.KanG1KanG2KanG3KanG4KanG5KanG6

The First Day

August 19, 2011

I knew Cole was happy when he plopped down after his snack Monday afternoon and told me all about his day. He added a simple question that summed up exactly how little he still is. He asked if he could go back to Kindergarten again tomorrow.

Here are pics from his first day. I drew a heart on his hand so that if he missed home he could just look at it and remember how much we all love him. I smiled when I noticed that he closed his little fingers around the palm of his hand while we walked to the bus stop. Grant stepped up as the Big Brother – stayed with him on the bus and brought him to his classroom all week. It was great for him to be the biggest brother for once – I’m so proud of the way he helped Cole feel comfortable at his new school.

It’s going to be a great year.
