Forgive me over the next few weeks as I try and play catch up from the month of December. November and December were absolutely packed for our family. Avery was born and with that came the excitement and visitors in and out of our house- and just trying to catch some sleep. Then we celebrated Thanksgiving, and not long after that Landon's Birthday and then Christmas. We had so many great memories over those two months and I feel like I'm just now having a chance to process them and get the pictures off of my camera.
So let's start with Miss Sassy Molassey herself (my sister nicknamed her that!). I knew when Avery was born I wanted to have a photographer come to our home and take newborn and family pictures for us. I could have taken some newborn pictures myself, but lets be honest, I was doing good to shower- much less take pictures. I contacted a local photographer, Melissa Sheets. I've admired her work for a while and she takes pictures for lots of our friends as well as my sister in law. I can't tell you how nice it was to finally meet her and talk photography with her. She is the sweetest person and so patient with us as we juggled a newborn who didn't sleep at all during the photo shoot and a 4 year old who was super excited and full of crazy faces that day. It was also such a relief for me to be able to put down my own camera, and let someone else take the reigns in capturing our family. I love how they turned out, and love that they were taken in our sweet girl's nursery. That room has some amazing natural light and Melissa definitely used it to get some beautiful shots. Melissa, if you happen to stumble onto my blog- thank you, thank you, thank you. We love the images!
