365 challenge.

I have recently discovered how much I love newborn photography, and it is so fun to be able to practice and play every day with my very own newborn. Today we had a really fun little photo shoot, and he is proving to be a fantastic little model, just like his big sister! I can't wait until I get to do this full time (*sigh, one day....). I started a 365 for Jack, just like I did with Lilly (a photo a day for a year). It's challenging, and I have to admit, there are many days that I want to quit. BUT, it is really worth it. I love the challenge of coming up with something new every day, and I get so much practice- giving me more confidence. AAAhhhh, photography. I love it!

Our new family.

Wow, it has been a long time since my last post! I found out I was pregnant a few weeks after my last post, and had a wonderful pregnancy. It was a stressful time- the end of the school year, weddings, trips back to New Jersey, and then my father passed away a month before I was due. Jack Martin was born exactly one month after that, and it was bittersweet for me.
Lilly has become a wonderful big sister, giving kisses and helping out when we ask. She is still only two, so we aren't expecting her to suddenly become a "mommy" to Jack... she is still very much our baby. Jack is a sweet baby who eats a LOT!
