It has been a busy season for all the hats I wear. Teaching, writing, photography – these things come in waves. Sometimes they all converge the same week and I wonder what I’ve done to myself.
I don’t advertise for photography outside of this blog and Facebook, mostly because I accomplish photo sessions during free time, so that means I’m not booked solid with one session after another. (Since it’s a hobby and not a career, this is key.) Yet, I still love doing them. I especially enjoy kids because they aren’t self-conscious, they mostly don’t care what they look like, and their smiles are so… pure, especially once I get them laughing.
Newborns are my favorite, by far. This segment of time is so short and it passes too quickly. A yawn is still novel.
Engagements aren’t bad either, y’all. Particularly in autumn.
And at six months old, when babies can finally respond to your crazy sounds and hand-waving, you occasionally get a good snapshot of a real smile.
Clearly he gets eyelash extensions.
Let me know if you want some photos taken in December. I have a little time.
