Happy Saturday! We woke up today and were greeted by a lawn covered with a thick layer of snow. My kids were so confused, since it seemed like Spring was coming, and all of a sudden we’re covered with snow again. This year is a crazy contrast from last year, when it was around 80 degrees in March. Well, the vision of snow was enough to cause my 4 year old to immediately get himself dressed and request some snow play. Personally, I’m quite partial to warm weather. There’s something about kids though, they get you wrapped up in their excitement. So we played, threw snowballs, and I secretly hoped that this is winter’s last hurrah.
For fun, I thought I’d show you a glimpse of what we were up to on March 14, 2012. Gotta love Michigan.
She’s here! My 7th niece (I also have 3 nephews). Her name is Karen, and she is soooooo cute! Ok, I’m biased, but she really is. After anxiously waiting all day, my husband came home and I raced over to the hospital as fast as I could! Then little Karen had the audacity to eat for the first hour or so that I was there. Finally, I got to hold her. My sister, D’Arcy is doing great. Tired, of course, but great. I’m so proud of her! She is so happy to finally be able to give her older daughter, Autumn, the sister she’s been begging for. I can’t wait to snuggle that little baby again. Newborn portraits coming soon!
Last week I had a shoot with Ellen. She had seen head shots that I had taken of her niece, and gave me a call. We decided to do them at her home in Huntington Woods. She probably thought I was crazy when I set up shop in the smallest room of her home after looking around for the best light. I was sad that it wasn’t the right time of day to get good light in her front living room, because she has gorgeous furniture and walls covered with art.
Despite it being a windy 28 degrees outside, she was a trooper and let me bring her outside to take some pictures as well. They turned out to be her favorites, and mine too. I’m so excited for the weather to warm up a bit and get outside a little more.
