Seniors are my favorite…remember? I have no shame telling everyone how much I love my seniors! I have had so many seniors from years past stay in touch with me and I love it so much! Somehow I book the sweetest seniors and Meagan was no different. This girl was so much fun to photograph because she was sweet as a button and is so beautiful! We found some green and natural areas since that is what her favorite style is. She even had a special spot in mind that ended up being one of my favorite places to go!
You are a stunning girl, Meagan!
I just love how all the seniors I get end up knowing each other in some way or another. The best thing for me is when friends recommend me as a photographer and I end up working with a group of friends by the end of the year. This is what happened with Lauren and several of her friends this year. I loved this group of girls as they were all so excited about their senior pictures and were just so fun to work with. Lauren is headed to Mizzou in the Fall and is all ready! Ok, maybe not all ready but I couldn’t believe that she already has her placement for her dorm! Crazy… considering it’s only April! Once you have your room, you feel like everything is official, you know?
Lauren, you are a beautiful girl! It was great to meet and work with you. Thanks for getting up super early to take advantage of the light! It was worth it!
Month two for Emery came so quickly! Shawn and I are officially telling people that we have an awesome baby. Because, well, she’s totally laid back. The girl only cries when she is hungry or tired and she really put herself on a little schedule. She’s like clockwork in that she eats just about every three hours. Is she sleeping through the night? Close…but not yet. She gets up once a night to nurse but then she goes back down. I’m not too eager to stop this, although that would be amazing! I just can’t complain about it at this stage in the game because I’m getting plenty of sleep. She likes to sleep in late which I can appreciate since I’m not yet back at work. I’m not sure how we lucked out on such a good baby…but we did. I joke around that I deserve such a happy baby because I carried her for 41 weeks. Anyone who carries a baby that long deserves a smiley baby. For real.
Baby girl is still going everywhere with us and I plan to continue that for as long as possible. I’m so glad she’s a go-with-the-flow type girl because that’s how her dad and I are. Shawn and I like to make last minute decisions and would prefer to play something by ear rather than plan it. We’re hoping she will always be like this but we know we are out of our minds for entertaining this idea.
This past month Emery has been smiley and cooing like crazy. I feel like her eyes have gotten bigger too, but that’s probably just because she has been so alert. Emery is in the 87th for height and the 44th for weight. I don’t really pay too much attention to the stats, but people always ask! I do look forward to hearing where she falls though since it changes month to month. We’re proud of our little girl and as much as we want her to stay this little forever we are also looking forward to watching her grow. In the mean time, I’m trying to take in all the smiles and take plenty of pictures because time is flying.
Edited to add: I’m completely honest on my blog so I thought I would add that since typing this we had a bad night. Last night Emery woke up FIVE TIMES from 10PM-8AM. This better be a growth spurt because there won’t be any of this in the future.
