Baby Photo-shoot: Cyrus

My 2nd son, Cyrus Abraham, came into the world on June 25th, 2014, 1 week & 1 day early. He was quite ready to come out too, since from labor to delivery was only  about 4 hours. He was 8lbs 6oz & 20" at birth. If he "cooked" any longer he probably would've been as big as his big brother was at birth.
I was looking forward to doing some photos of him in the hospital, but that didn't really work out. He kept crying because it was too cold. I took a couple in the hospital & did the rest when he was 10 days old. I'm still hoping to get some of him & his brother before too long!
This was my first photo-shoot with a baby. I enjoyed it, it was rather a peaceful experience for the most part.
The first 3 pictures are the ones he is 1 day old.

Dandelion & Iris

I really, really wish I had a macro lens for my camera. I think it'd be so fun to take some awesome close up shots of things!  Till then, I work with what I have.

I edited the Dandelion & one of the iris photos with a bit of HDR

My son turned 3 a couple weeks ago, and if anyone has photographed children you know it's pretty hard to do. So, I chose to just get him in action or when he wasn't expecting it.
I am terrible at getting these milestone photos printed! Anyone else?

Flowering Trees in our Yard

For those of you that are new to my blog or didn't know,  my husband and I bought our 1st house in October of last year so everything in the yard is new to us. It actually bugs me that I don't know if flowers are planted or what certain plants are. At least we have a couple of crab apple trees for the pretty blossoms in the Spring, otherwise I'd rather a different type of tree in the yard.

Bald Eagles

A couple weeks ago we took a drive  to Alma, WI on the Mississippi River. Ever since first going there I've wanted to take my dad to see the area. The area is known for Bald Eagles and this time we finally saw a few! I got right under the eagle but I wasn't quite at the right angle, and then he flew away. We also saw 2 other bald eagles, one was smaller.  A family perhaps?  The last photo is of the other two.

Father & Son

Today is my son's 3rd birthday. So I thought I'd post a recent picture of him and his dad till I get around to hopefully taking some 3 year pictures of him.

Creepy Shoes

On  a ride to the state park, outside of Connersville, WI we came across some shoes in the tree. No biggie, right? Until just up the road we saw another pair and another. Then, we came across shoes lined up on the guardrail. I  was creeped out! But I told my husband I wanted to stop on the way back to take some pictures of it since it was so odd.
The area felt really strange to me when I got out of the car so I snapped some quick photos. Most of the shoes on the rail were bolted down, making it even weirder to me. It was creepy seeing all those shoes sitting there. Of course, my husband thought I was insane, but whatever. Anyone else creeped out with me???
