Project 365+1 :: Day 59 :: “Innocence”

I LOVE candid shots 🙂  This little angel is the sweetest little girl I’ve ever met!  🙂  I’ve also been blessed to watch her grow up from a newborn to a toddler!  I can’t believe how fast that first year goes, and I’m even MORE blessed that I get to learn from my friends about motherhood.  It will definitely be a ride, but I will learn to cherish every moment.  One day!  🙂

Project 365+1 :: Day 41 :: “Surprise”

Well, I uploaded this picture a LONG time ago, which was really not that long ago.  It’s NOW DAy 57, and I saw that I was missing my post.  Hello! Melissa!!  SO HELLO WORLD!  Here is Day 41!  Can I say that I am a little upset that now my days are all funky 😦  Oh my organized little mind.

A little note about these flowers.  My hubby randomly surprised me one day with a cute bouquet of flowers 🙂  They were so pretty and smelled really nice!

Project 365+1 :: Day 57 :: “Baby Blue Eyes”

Now I know where the term “baby blue” really comes from!  Usually babies have blue eyes when they’re born, and when they have blue eyes, they are just breathtaking!  🙂  check out this beautiful baby girl’s baby blue eyes.

WOW.  I am majorly behind on blogging about EVERYTHING.  Sorry, friends!  I have a lot on my plate, and when that happens, I tend to procrastinate on the things that require me to focus on one thing.

2, almost 3, weeks ago, I had the absolute pleasure of photographing my first newborn, Baby G.  If you remember, I took pictures of him in utero ;), but it was mostly his momma and daddy (who are absolutely amazing and proud parents).  You can check out that post here 🙂

Well here he is!  Baby G!  At only 8 days old, he was fighting the pictures in the beginning.  He just wanted to eat and eat!  He’s definitely going to be a BIG BOY! 🙂  I cannot wait!

Project 365+1 :: Day 37 :: “It’s a Baby!”

There is no shortage of cuteness from this little guy.  He is TOO adorable, and he gets me in trouble.  Fires up the baby fever!!  I can’t wait for my own little one, one day…far in the future…the distant future.  Too many plans, goals, dreams right now, and I know that when I have a baby, I want to just enjoy him/her.  Gotta get it all out of the way before a little one comes in the picture.

Project 365+1 :: Day 33 :: “Teeny Feetsies”

Oh man!  Look at these feet!!!  I got to see Mr. G last week in the hospital, brand new.  Then this past weekend, I got to see him again.  And he is just beautiful.  Definitely a miraculous gift from God.  Babies are precious, even if they’re crying, and they all deserve love.  I cannot wait to see him grow in the next few months.  He is a blessing and is blessed with the most amazing parents and family.  There will never be a shortage of love for this little man.

Project 365+1 :: Day 29 :: “Mmmmm”

I love this little man!  🙂  I get to visit him every Tuesday and see how much he grows each week.  Here he is 7 months and eating applesauce!  Such a big boy!  You can find his momma on her blog and check out her 365 Project if you click here.  In this picture, I have just given him a spoonful of applesauce which is dripping down his chin.  Mmmmm!

Project 365+1 :: Day 25 :: “Fingers&Toes”

This is one of my favorite pictures from my visit to Gunner and Family in the hospital.  Fresh, new baby toes 🙂  Gunner is absolutely adorable, and his parents cannot be happier that he’s finally here.  I get pretty emotional about this little guy because I’ve watched Jaime go from start to finish, and I felt him in her belly (first one that I felt move in the belly).  Congrats Jaime and Travis!  Can’t wait to share his newborn shoot with you too!  🙂

Baby G-man :: Okinawa Newborn Photographer

I LOVE MY JOB.  I get to share special moments with families that just overflow my heart with so much love.  I have a major soft spot for babies which I think grew when I went to the Philippines.  Yesterday (Friday, February 24, 2012) at 7:51pm (Japan Time), Gunner was born to Jaime&Travis 🙂 I stopped by the hospital real quick so I could meet the little man, as well as, grab some hospital pics.

First of all, I have never seen a dad as happy as Travis!  He opened that door with the biggest smile on his face.  Proud daddy 🙂  Sigh.  That baby took my breath away with his major cuteness.  He will definitely be a heartbreaker.  There is so much love in this little family already.  And Jaime looks amazing after having a baby the day before.  She looks beautiful and happy and ready for mommy-hood.

The miracles of babies will always confound me, and it will probably last until I have my own children.  Stay tuned for more pictures of Gunner – we’ve got a newborn session coming up!
