Hello 2016, I've been waiting for you!
Yay!!! First portraiture blog of 2016!! The idea for these blogs will be a place to showcase each session in it's entirety. I will share a little bit about the individuals involved as well as the experience. Each session is very special to me because I have the honor of capturing these memories.
With that said, I figured the first post would be of my little ones. I have three kids; Mia is 9 years old, Lorenzo is 6 years old and Niko is 8 months old. Each child is interestingly different but each is such a special soul.
Mia loves everything cat and sharks! She is a great big sister and I often look to her to help me out with our infant. She loves to read and share her knowledge about sharks. Mia and Lorenzo both are taking music lessons at School of Rock. She is taking vocal lessons and her current songs are "Radioactive", "When the Love Runs Out", and other classic rock goodies. She is in the 3rd grade and works hard to be a great student. She is my laid back babe and enjoys hanging around and cuddling.
She loves her family and her animals specifically Vanillope, our Siamese Pointer. We adopted this sweet but crazy girl from Petsmart (growing up we had the EXACT same cat and she was my BABY!!) and there's just something about the bound they have created. She loves to do crafts like me and takes pride in her work. Mia is a sweet girl with a helpful and kind demeanor. We are blessed to have her be our eldest with two busy boys
Oh Lorenzo.... My middle babe with a passionate and loving heart. He is playful, sweet, and loves life. You can find him any given day playing with his lightsabers or watching one of the sagas. He is a Star Wars boy! Him and Mia enjoy naming all our family members characters from the movies. He is currently Luke, Mia is Leia, I am Padme and dad is Anakin. Oh ya... Niko is baby R2D2. Lorenzo is an active little boy who enjoys being outside riding his bike, scooter, or playing make believe with his friends in the neighborhood.
He is 6 years old and in Kindergarten! He is a fantastic student and loves to write in journals. For Christmas, Santa brought him a few journals and he has already written on each page. He is a determined little boy who likes to finish each task to the end. He is a diligent worker and loves a new challenge. He is super silly and likes to make everyone laugh and happy. Lorenzo loves his baby brother. Every morning he goes into his room to say "Good morning buddy". You can often hear him saying in Niko's ear, "I just love you".
Lorenzo is extremely intelligent and I just know his future is a bright one!
My angel baby. No really, we tried for almost 3 years to conceive and due to some health problems (PCOS), we were not successful. I went to see a fertility specialist and started treatment for one month, July, and it did not work. In August I visited the doctor and he said that my body was not responding and we were to take a month off and start again in September. I was devastated. When I got home from that appointment, Daniel, my husband, said to just relax and let it happen naturally. Keep eating healthy and working out and if it was meant to be, it would. Well at the end of August, we conceived naturally. Niko was born May 14, 2015. He is 8 months old and such an absolute joy to everyone's world. He is a smiley baby who is extremely adaptable to every new situation.
He is currently learning to eat real food. He has only tried green beans and did not even FLINCH when he tried his first bite. He is crawling everywhere and I love to keep up with him. He is a fantastic sleeper (like his big bro). He takes two 2-3 hour naps and sleeps through the night. He LOVES music. His favorite toy is his keyboard and loves to hear daddy play his guitar.
Niko loves EVERYONE (except Santa) and will smile and laugh with one work said to him. He melts my heart every single day. He really is something special. Daniel and I both say it everyday, we can just tell. He is a cuddler and a lover. He is gentle with the puppies and kitties and likes to lay on Izzy's belly. I can't say enough our our little man. He is a true blessing, as all our kids are!
