Getting started on Christmas | Cincinnati OH Newborn Photographer

I decided I better get started on Christmas photo's if I plan to get all the ones that I want and have in mind. So Today I did Nolan's.

This one is my fav:
My fav.

Santa Baby

Leave some presents

I plan to do each of the boys separate and then try for the hard task of getting them all together. Then of course The whole family. We will see how it goes. :P I really need to get a remote trigger for the shutter for my family shots. Last year it was less than fun running back and forth for the self timer. I am sure it will be even harder with Nolan this year. I just have no clue which one to get.

Happy Birthday daddy!

In honor of Chuck's birthday we decided to bake some brownies. Nevin wanted to help and got all geared up. I of course took the opportunity to take a few shots once the brownies were baking!

Making something special


Nothing special planned for today. Chuck has to work, but we plan to celebrate this weekend! :)

1 month already

I can't believe a month has already come and gone sense Nolan arrived. It seems like he has always been a part of our lives in a way, but it just makes me sad that time is going by so fast. He is growing so fast and developing more of his own personality each day. I just love his little expression in this one:
My sweet baby boy

and of course a baby toosh shot:
I just love this little face

Little baby blue | Cincinnati OH Newborn Photographer

I love when he makes fishy lips, of course it's just one of his many ways to say he is hungry, but adorable none the less.
Fishy lips

I think he is starting to realize the big black thing (my camera) is just another part of me.
Little baby blue too!

A beautiful Sunday

Nicholas and I went out Sunday morning so I could take his pictures. We had fun goofing around, he was trying so hard not to laugh at my silly jokes. He is getting older and it really shows in his personality. I can't believe how fast time flies, I look at Nolan and remember Nicholas being just as tiny. He is my first baby and will always be just that (my baby) in my heart!

Couldn't resist... | Cincinnati OH Newborn Photographer

I got this little outfit for Nolan thinking Christmas photo's, as it would be easy to get everyone something coordinating. I just couldn't resist trying it on him and when I did I had to take some photo's!

He is such a happy baby!

Curious baby | Cincinnati OH Newborn Photographer

Playtime in the crib

Nolan had some "playtime" in his crib yesterday and just loved it. He was so cute concentrating on the bumper pad and watching the mobile.

concentrating  on the animals.

Enjoying the space in his crib

He is 4 weeks old today, I just can't believe how fast time goes by.

Brothers | Cincinnati OH Newborn Photographer

Nevin and Nolan fascinated with each other:

I just love the connection Nevin has with Nolan already. It is so sweet, he is a wonderful big brother!

One on Wednesday...

Just wanted to share this one of Nathaniel from yesterday.
After we took pictures outside I realized we needed some more warm clothes for the boys. So I decided to be brave and take the 3 younger boys to the mall by MYSELF, I def. need a double stroller for a task like that next time. We made it through one store and I was worn out. one baby in the sling, one toddler hiding in clothes racks, and one complaining of hunger because we walked past the food court. Oh the joys of motherhood! :P

Silly boys

I took Nathaniel and Nevin outside for pictures this morning, This is the first one:
Nathaniel & Nevin
Which really captures their personalities. Nathaniel is a thinker and always a bit more serious than the other boys. Nevin on the other hand is so free spirited and playful. Now this is after Nevin decided to yell out "POOP!"
Nevin said something to make him less serious
What is it with boys thinking bodily functions are such a funny thing to talk about?! (I remember all my boys, excluding Nolan of course he is still to little and 2 of my nephews sitting at the dinner table and all you could hear is laughter and talk of bodily functions. Silly boys!) Nevin will just randomly say it and the boys laugh so it's been an on going thing.

One more of my silly little guys:

Pumpkin patch

We went to the Pumpkin patch this weekend, the boys had a lot of fun. Nolan hung out in the sling. It was pretty sunny, but not as warm as I had hoped. Here is a picture Chuck took of me and all my boys.
Me and my boys at the pumpkin patch
And one my sister in law took of our whole family. (our first one with all of us together!)
The whole family.
Witness that brotherly love. hee hee

Nevin and the leaves

Nevin and I got to play outside in the morning on Wednesday while Nathaniel and Nolan were sleeping. Nicholas was already at school, so it was nice to just get a bit of play time with just the 2 of us. I think he enjoyed it, I know I did even though he decided to throw leaves at me. :P

Getting a handful together:

Showing me what he is going to throw at me, he looks so proud of his plan... doesn't he?
Showing me his leaves

Love that he still has one stuck on his jacket from throwing them at me, and of course he is getting more.

My future photographer | Cincinnati OH Newborn Photographer

Nathaniel Is always so interested in photography. He likes to get outfits together for himself and pick his own spots when I take his photo's. He even tells the boys what to do when I am taking theirs. :P He loves to use my point and shoot to take random pictures and fill up my cards. hee hee.

I realized I didn't have many pictures of Nolan and I together yet and asked Nathaniel if he would like to take some for me. Sure enough he was more than willing. I set up the tripod and put the XTI up on it in full auto and let him go for it. I think he did a great job. Here are my 2 favorites:

Crystal Blues

Nevin has the most Beautiful crystal blue eyes I have ever seen.

Big blues
I love them!

Chuck has Brown eyes and I have green. Nicholas and Nathaniel have brown as well. Nolan's are blue, but I think they will change like Nicholas' and Nathaniel's did. We shall see.

Look at all that hair! | Cincinnati OH Newborn Photographer

I just love Nolan's wavy blonde hair, and peach fuzzed body...
Sweet boy


And my happy babies sweet smile could just make me melt!

Where's the milk? | Cincinnati OH Newborn Photographer

It always cracks me up when Nolan shoves his hands or arm in his mouth and tries to latch on, he gets upset when he realizes they have no milk for him. :P
yummy arm

Just our little pumpkin | Cincinnati OH Newborn Photographer

Chuck got Nolan a bunch of cute Halloween outfits, This Jack-O-lantern long sleeve is one of my favs. Here's our little pumpkin. I just love catching his smiles:
Sweet dreams

Cutest pumpkin in the patch


A couple more of our precious boy:

I think he actually looks like me in this one, I could just be hoping because he is so darn precious and everyone keeps telling me how much he looks like Chuck and Nathaniel. :P

Two weeks | Cincinnati OH Newborn Photographer

Nolan turned TWO weeks yesterday, Time is already flying by. I can't believe it. Here he is yesterday with Nicholas, who just couldn't wait to come in and hold him after school!


I had planned to do a 2 week shoot for him yesterday, but completely forgot Nicholas had rehearsal so we had to have an early dinner and head out. At least I got a few snaps of him with his biggest brother. :)

Fall is fun!

Two posts in one day, it's like Christmas came early. :-P

We have been having lots of fun with all of our falling leafs, Nathaniel has a little rake and makes himself piles and jumps in. He loves picking out all the red ones for me because he knows I love them. He wanted me to take pictures of his favorite ones, so of course I ran in grabbed my camera and took a few...
Fall is fun!
