He's here



May 31, 2010     Personal

280 days of anticipation and 24 hours of labor later, our precious little boy is finally here. Alexander Joseph McCauley entered into this beautiful world on May 26th at 7:55 p.m. He was 8 lbs 4 ounces and 22 1/2 inches long. The little guy has quite the set of legs on him. :)

The entire experience has overwhelmed me with love and finding the words to describe it is impossible. Although we had 9 months to prepare for this day - reading books, talking to other mothers, going to child birth classes, etc...nothing truly prepared me for what is now my life. I had plenty of time to dream about what his birthday would look like, but the intensity of labor surprised me (to say the least) yet transformed me as the hours passed by into this person who would do absolutely anything for this little guy who is propped in my arms as I type. My heart is overflowing and my eyes are rarely on anything but him. My life has completely changed...and I'm convinced it doesn't get any better than this.

(there are more photos to come but I have a little guy calling for me) :)



Our sweet little Alex





My everything :)

273 Days



May 19, 2010     Personal

273 days marked off the calendar with only 6 more to go before my due date...not that I'm keeping track. :) To say the past 9 months have gone quickly would be an understatement. I fully expected them to drag on and on, but much to my surprise, here I am wondering how we reached this point so quickly. Eric and I are just days away from meeting the little man that will forever change our lives and the mere thought of him makes us speechless and overwhelmed with so many emotions. I keep imagining seeing his little face for the first time and holding him in my arms...and watching Eric become a Dad (he's going to be SUCH a good Dad!!) Oh how I can't wait for the big day!! Stay tuned! :)



1 week to go (or 2 if he's pokey)



The growing belly from 20-39 weeks!

April



May 18, 2010     Portraits

My heart is overflowing going through these pictures of my sweet little niece, April! I know you have all seen her many times before on the blog, but these are her "official 5-year pictures" and I just had to share because (I know I'm biased) but I don't think she could be any cuter! :) It's amazing looking back on all of the photos I've taken of her to see how much she's grown-up ... in what seems like a blink of an eye.



The tutu was absolutely perfect :)





My favorite!



Trying to be serious :)

DJ, Elizabeth & Addison



May 13, 2010     Portraits

I just love our neighbors. :) As I've mentioned in previous posts, these guys started out as clients before quickly realizing that we live exactly 1-block from each other! You might remember them from here and here. I absolutely love photographing them even though it's hard to keep the camera from shaking like crazy from all of the laughter that is had. :)

Elizabeth is having her 2nd little girl on May 25th - the same day that I'm due! It's going to be a fun summer on Major Avenue! :)


At first, I was a little concerned when I would take a picture and Addison would squeeze her eyes shut...she's almost 2. :)



She then told me what was up.



Mom and Dad did a little pleading



And alas, Addison smiled...with her eyes open. :)







She's quite the serious clapper.



One of my favorites!



Elizabeth is one hot mama! I can't wait to meet her little girl at the end of the month!



I just love this series in the field...













And it only makes sense to wrap it up with a little peek-a-boo!

Erin



May 12, 2010     Portraits

This weekend I had the pleasure of photographing Erin because she needed some photos for her website! She might look familiar to some of you, as Erin is one of my oh-so-fabulous assistants at weddings. Normally, photographing other photographers is tricky (many of us, like myself, prefer to remain BEHIND the camera), but Erin is a natural so my job was easy!
