Sonny Acres

We made our annual trip to the local pumpkin farm, Sonny Acres. In tow were my folks, my sister, my brother, Des, and first-timer Lucy. Seeing my little chubby pumpkin amidst a sea of real pumpkins made my smile stretch from ear to ear. Our trip was a few days after my birthday, a very […]

Lucy Month Eight

Maybe it’s because we’ve been together every day for a while now, but I haven’t felt time has gone by fast until  this month.  Until now, time has gone by at a reasonable rate. When I’m with Lucy, I rarely look back and I rarely look forward. My biggest wish is to be with her […]

Lucy Month Seven

Wham, her hand slams on the table. She looks at me – eyes wide, mouth open, and a little grunt squeaks out. Hit me again, I want more food.  She takes in her spoonful of the daily special. A little bit of the food finds it’s way through her lips and on to her face. […]

Lucy Month Six

This month was a special one. It was a month of big milestones for both us and Lucy. After moving eight times in ten years, Des and I finally picked a place to sink our toes and grow some roots. We both agreed we are staying put for at least five years.  This was our […]

Lucy Month Five

Lucy turned five months on July 21, just days before our big move to the suburbs.  Scrambling for ideas to document her fifth month in our lives, I played on the growing chaos of our apartment.  As you can see Lucy ended up in a  moving box, with all of her stuffed animals and a […]

Lucy Month Four

The milestones seem to be coming faster and faster these days. Lucy went on her first plane ride and international trip. The day before the big trip, she learned to roll from her back to her stomach with ease – no arms getting stuck under her ever-growing and adorable belly. Then the day after we […]

Lucy Month Three

Here we are at month three. A little late, but here nonetheless. This wee one is taking up a good portion of my schedule these days. She’s very interested in my day-to-day activities – cleaning, cooking, walking Gordon. She’s very social, and especially likes being in crowds. She loves being outside, watching the leaves dance […]

Lucy Two Months

The second month is so much different than the first month. And I’m sure the following months will be just as different as the second month. Lucy has really started to show her personality. Awake, and alert for a good portion of the day. Smiling. Cooing. All the beginnings of a little girl with a […]

Adorable Italia Sisters

Here is a sneak peak at a mini-session I did with the Italia family. These girls are so photogenic. I mean, look at that photo above. I love it. Everyone is always trying to get their kids to smile for the camera, but sometimes when you let them be you can really capture their pure, […]
