I can’t believe my son Henry is 9 months old! It seems like just yesterday I was shooting my last wedding with a giant belly and swollen feet.

He has to be one of the easiest babies……he sleeps/eats and giggles.  { you can cross off the sleeping…..he has had a relapse in the last couple of days. Oh and the teething……his last episode had all four top teeth come in….that was fun. }

His latest development is crawling and couch surfing. I knew this day was coming and I have been dreading it. Up until now I’ve been able to plop him down in one spot and get some work done.

But now…….not so much work. I try to get a bit done everyday. Check a one or two things off my list.

So as promised I will now admit that I am not a super mum! { To check out waht I’m talking about go to my fellow Photographer Chenin’s  blog post }

I routinely go until 2pm without showering. I eat my son’s left over banana cereal because I don’t have time to make my own. I secretly fantasize about running away for a couple days just to get some work done. I keep trying to give my son a soother hoping that one day……..he will take it back and I will no longer be his personal pacifier. I could go on.

I thought being a wedding photographer was action packed…….I had no clue what being a mum would require a degree in Psychology and 6 months cardio training.

I love my son. Henry has brought more joy to my life in 9 months than my entire 35 years has given me. But he sure does keep me on my toes.

And now I must run because he is just about to pull the tray out of the blueray player and my loving husband will have a heart attack.

Enjoy the pictures…….

Now for some out takes……

Crawling is making this harder.

Sometimes he isn’t even in the shot. I want to get this one as a HUGE canvas for Henry’s wall.

Well the babymoon is over and I’m officially back to work.

I photographed Maggie + Rafal back in August of 2009. I think it was a test……they soon were engaged and I was booked to shoot their wedding.

Even though my fingers almost froze off during the outdoor photo session…..I think we manages to get some pretty cool shots.

Maggie’s attention to detail made my job so easy. Everywhere you looked there was something to take a picture of.
