Quinn- 6 months

Every time I get to photograph a newborn baby I am in awe of their newness (if that is even a word).  Then when I photograph them 6 months later I am amazed at the changes you see in such a short period of time.  Quinn was no exception!  He was such a tiny 5 pounder when I first met him and now he is 6 months old and I can't believe it!  He is still a peanut but for such a little guy, he sure knows how to control the world around him.  I had about 30 minutes with Quinn before he decided that he had, had enough with pictures.  In spite of that, we got some adorable shots!

Graduation Time

I know that it is hard to believe that it is graduation time here in Utah since we have not seen the sun for more than 3 days at a time for a while.  Alas, it is that time of year.  I will share two seniors with you this week.  The first is Nicholina, who has worked very hard to graduate from college.  She is a single mom who has an amazing heart and is beautiful in every way. Nicholina brought her son along so we could do a few pictures for her announcement.  Like most little boys he did not want to take pictures but I think they turned out awesome despite his angst.

If there is any advice I can give to moms out there it would be this:  Share you big moments with your kids.  Let them see you be successful.  It will only drive them to be successful when they grow up (even if they don't seem like they care right now!)
