Fifty Two on Friday : Funny | Fayetteville NC Children Photographer

This year, I’ve joined 19 other fantastic photographers to do a year long journey–the Fifty Two on Friday.  You can see last week’s post here.

This week, the theme is funny.  I love this photo of Aidan–it is one to show his future girlfriends.  I love this boy.

Fifty Two on Friday : Bright Colors | Fayetteville NC Children Family Baby Photographer

This year, I’ve joined 19 other fantastic photographers to do a year long journey–the Fifty Two on Friday.  You can see last week’s post here.

Ahh…bright colors.  I don’t shoot a lot of bright colors–I do a muted warm thing.  So I shot some red.  I drive a red mustang and Aidan had to have a matching one.  He uses it to pick up women–that is the little children who come to me for photos.  He likes to jump on it and ride around showing off, and will ask for a ride from a girl in a heartbeat.  One day, my matching mustang will be his…I can picture him sitting on the hood at 16 trying to flag down a pretty young lady to go joyriding with him.

And just for good measure, one more of my growing little boy.

Fifty Two on Friday : Summer | Fayetteville NC Children Family Photographer

This year, I’ve joined 19 other fantastic photographers to do a year long journey–the Fifty Two on Friday.  You can see last week’s post here.

This week the theme is summer.  Again I had the idea of taking Aidan out to play in a sprinkler but he tends to take late evening naps (the better to stay up late with mommy, my dear) so I haven’t been able to.  We are going to the beach today though, so in honor of that–and as an incentive for me to get up early on Saturday for sunrise photos on the beach–here is a sunset in California.

I think maybe its pregnancy hormones, but I’ve been very sentimental lately. Its always just been me and Aidan at night. I’m going to miss that. I always imagined he’d be my only child–don’t get me wrong I’m excited about a new baby–but I am going to miss it being me and my baby boy. I am trying really hard to treasure every moment with him now that I can, if only he’d wake up from a nap so we could go make cookies and play the pecuter together.

This is the last Summer that Aidan will be my spoiled little only child, Mr. Prince.  My last summer that we spend the evenings just me and him, playing camping and peoples.  Of long 30 minute baths until his skin gets soggy.  Of falling asleep together watching television.  Of Saturday morning Disney cartoons in our pajamas.  Of sitting in my lap playing computer games.  Of sleeping with me in my bed so he won’t be alone.  Now, he’ll be a big brother, and I’ll be a busy mommy with 2 full time jobs and 2 babies to take care of, with so much less free time to be only his.

Fifty Two on Friday : Free | Fayetteville Fort Bragg NC Newborn Photographer

This year, I’ve joined 19 other fantastic photographers to do a year long journey–the Fifty Two on Friday.  You can see last week’s post here.

This week, the theme is free.  I live in a military town and I get requested a flag shot for a lot of my  newborn photo sessions.  This little boy is the happiest little guy to be wrapped in our American Flag–the ultimate symbol of Freedom.  Thanks to his daddy, we are free.

Fifty-Two on Friday : Whimsical | Fayetteville Stedman NC Newborn Baby Photographer

This year, I’ve joined 19 other fantastic photographers to do a year long journey–the Fifty Two on Friday.  You can see last week’s post here.

This week, the theme is whimsical-which means spontaneously fanciful or playful.  I had the hardest time thinking of something to photograph this week, but then I remembered our trip to San Diego last week, and the shows at Sea World.  Back in the days, before that Orca attacked the trainer, the trainers at Sea World would get in the water and ride the backs of the dolphins, and do tricks.  It was the best part of the park!  I was disappointed this year, though, to find out they do not do that anymore.  The trainers did a few things with the dolphins, but didn’t get in the water with the Orcas at all.  I was so sad.  Instead, its like watching Cirque du Soleil, water style.  How much more whimsical can you get with a woman dressed as a giant macaw, flying on a wire, men in spandex with weird feathers, and it all revolving around some silly story involving a girl at a window and horrible music and dolphins jumping around?  I didn’t get it.
