happy hearts: parts is NOT just parts


so, i'm a foster mom...without any foster kiddos right now. but one of my friends has a house full...she's a little nuts like me! anyway, one of her precious peas never got newborn pics.
so, i love photography...and babies!
and photographing babies is uber great!!!

i was so excited...and he was tired and hungry...of course.

i love baby expressions and foreheads...look at the intense thought here.

and being cute and cuddly is so stinking exhausting!

don't you just love those sweet little baby hands and feet???
so, my fun and excitement for this month included doing a photo shoot for some very happy and joyful birthparents who never got newborn pics of their precious pea...

it's not much, but it's def something that i know i treasure as a momma...so in honor of project{happy hearts}, i used some of my skills to give a smile to someone in need.

come and join in the fun! go see more at chronicles of a mommy.

Not much? Are you kidding me? That is EVERYTHING to a parent! I would LOVE to have had newborn pictures of Lincoln & Ruby Jane. Instead, we have sanpshots and 7 month old pictures. That's OK though, we're all good. My point is, that you did something great to make someone's hear HAPPY...and you have mad skills dear friend. Mr. Linky is back up and running. He was being a litte funky earlier. Sorry!

Elizabeth said...

Wow, those are great pictures! So sweet of you to do them.

What beautiful photographs of that sweet little one and what a lovely gift to give the family.
I can't tell you how many times I wished I had newborn pics of the kids I have adopted. :(

Blessings!

I never thought about foster kids not having any baby photos of themselves before. How sad!

Are you a professional photographer?

I agree with the above comments. Your photos capture the innocence and also go to show what a big heart you have. I think you rock! Stopping by from SITS rollcall to say hello.

First, I love that Harry Connick Jr. Song you have playing. What album is it from? I thought I had all of his music.
Second, I love those pictures! That baby is adorable.
Third, What a fun way to pass on a smile.

These lovely pictures are not good. Not good at all. They make me think that maybe I am ready to have another baby. Yikes!

I am going to wake my kids up from their nap and get back to reality now. :)
