A lot of photographers I know work with an assistant either all or most of the time (especially with newborn sessions). I haven’t had the luxury of an assistant…until I got to work with Bob. That handsome man right down there was awesome to me! Usually during my newborn sessions, the dads are pretty helpful. They like to be hands on and do what they can. But Bob was on a whole new level. He was my right hand man the entire time, grabbing blankets, holding the blow dryer, calming his little baby, and basically anticipated my every need. He was awesome!! I may have to hit him up for my next newborn session.
This is Fletcher. He’s Bob’s son. He is a very special, very loved little guy. To say his family has had a rough few years would be a dramatic understatement. One of the many losses his family faced was that of his big brother Tyler at just a few days old. I cannot even begin to imagine facing a loss like that, but this family has worked through this tragedy with such grace and love. They are a true inspiration.
I should be doing some serious work right now. The husband is out squeezing in one last day of hunting (because it snowed!! I still don’t get why you need to hunt in the snow, but whatever), and the baby girl is taking a much needed nap, leaving me some much needed quiet time. So instead of being uber productive, what am I doing? Filling up our little boy’s very empty closet with some online shopping. I blame it all on my mother-in-law. This morning she gave us some adorable little outfits for him and now I’m in full on baby mode. So I decided that if I blog about my time-wasted, it won’t really be wasted…it will be productive in TWO ways! 1) filling up his closet and 2) maybe showing you some cute little shops you haven’t heard of before. You’re welcome.
