look at him now...

do you remember when I did this pregnancy shoot
?
and
then this newborn shoot 
when griffin was just a few weeks old

well look at this little man now
don't you just want to eat him up
?
~~
girffin is now 7 months old 
and 
what his parents wanted to document was his 6 month birthday 
but 
due to mother nature being quite unreliable
and
my dislike to taking indoor photos
our shoot was finally yesterday
and
it felt so good
~~
but did you know
babies are fast in everything
?
smiling
laughing
eye blinking
hand moving
body slumping
and
tipping over
~~
I think I might need a nap today

  7. awwwww. i want one... sigh. seems like it was forever ago already... the best part about a nap when you have a newborn is when they take a nap right there beside you, ahhh, i miss those days, well...the napping part, and all the other sweet parts, the diapers and crying and all that stuff in between... not so much. :)
    hope all is well dear one.

  8. What a sweet energetic looking little boy. But then I guess most boys are energetic. I know my young grandson is! He's a cutie!

  12. Beth,I could so connect with your post today. I'm sorry I missed the pregnancy shoot and the newborn shoot (thank goodness they can be retrieved to enjoy). Catching the shots you did for his "6 mos." birthday are wonderful and I do know that they did not come about easily. You obviously made him feel at ease to capture those expressions that are so relaxed and in the moment. I had to smile at the suggestion that a nap was in order. Don't I know it?!!!

    Thanks for your comments at Simon Says. Yes, Simon has Oh The Places You'll Go in his library ... who doesn't love that book? or babies' feet? those expressions of sheer unabashed joy? Yes, I'm in love ... and I've waited a long eight years for this new man in my life.

  16. Watching my niece's baby a few months ago I realized that their faces are ALWAYS moving, their emotions transparently broadcast - so fearless. I wish I had taken some mini-videos of my kids just to see that play of feeling, but I didn't have the (then) expensive equipment. You've done well capturing the movement and energy of your little one in these photos.

  18. that pregnancy photo is stunning!! (I don't like taking indoor photos either-natural light is soooo much better).

    I responded to your request with instructions in the comments section on my blog-thanks for wanting to wear my badge!!
