Our family loves photo shoots…well maybe I love photo shoots and my family tags along, but needless to say that I love documenting milestones in our lives especially the birth of our children. We had Nash’s photos done recently by our wonderful family photographer Jason Kelly. This time around we opted to incorporate the whole family into the photos. I wanted to have memories of Isla with her new brother and of course some photos of all four of us. Isla was super excited the whole time. Like, way to excited! We managed to get a few shots of Isla with Nash but most of the time was spent watching her like a hawk and trying to get her to keep her hands to herself. She hasn’t quite got the concept of “gentle” yet. We are working on it daily!
Nash had a major case of the poops on this particular night. He pooped on his dad 4 separate times and topped it all off with two very high velocity pees. It was quite the scene in Jason’s studio and of course he had to take some pictures to remember the event.
Looking at the pictures they showcase our family to a tee right now. Nash was awake most of the time, furrowing his brow in almost every photo as if he was thinking “get me out of here and where is my boob?” My eyes were puffy and black, not sure when the last time was that I washed my hair, my belly shows all of the signs of a recent birth, Isla is going crazy because it is passed her bedtime and Dana is clearly wondering what the he** he has gotten himself into! Or he is tired. That could also be the reason! They are different from Isla’s newborn photos in the sense that she was our first child and everything was a little more calm and we weren’t completely sleep deprived yet. Now, these photos showcase our growing family and all of the craziness that comes along with it. I couldn’t love them more!
