May 5, 2016 - Baby-bump Photo-Shoot

Brianna and Casey asked me to take the final baby-bump photos for them as baby Axel is due any day now.  Blake and I met them at Kathryn Albertsons Park, and we had a delightful time.

The weather was perfect, other than a few sprinkles every now and then, and the park was gorgeous! While we waited for Casey and Brianna to arrive, Blake ran through the forest, chasing animals with his camera.  It was hilarious!

At one point, I took Blake's camera and changed the shooting mode to manual.  He took off chasing after a rabbit, and crawled into the bushes to capture photos.  He came running out to show me his epic photos...and nothing!  The frames were black!
"OMG, mom, what happened to my pictures?"  I told him to check his settings, and he was furious!  "Newbie move son.  The first thing you do when you pick up a camera is check your settings!  Lesson learned!"

Don't worry, I was able to save his photos in post-processing, but it is an important lesson to learn if you are serious about photography.  ALWAYS check your setting!
When Brianna and Casey finally arrived, we had a good photo-shoot.  I had to work fast, as I did not want Brianna on her feet too long.  She really needs to rest up for the baby, but really wanted this last session in before Axel arrives.  And we got it done!

Here are some of my favorite photos...


This is the engraved necklace I got Brianna for Christmas.  It has Axel's name, tiny feet and a May birthstone.  I thought she was so sweet to want to have it in the shoot.  <3





 Blake captured a couple of amazing photos too.  And he got the settings right!  Good job, son. :)
 He is an awesome photographer in the making!
Now we wait for that precious grandson of mine to make his appearance.  He has a HUGE family waiting to hug him and squeeze him and love him forever.  :)
 
Until next time...enjoy life, and be kind to one another.


Peace.

May 1, 2016 - Celebrating Family

Another weekend has come and gone, and great memories were made.  April ended on a great note, and May is off to a great start!

Casey came over after work on Friday to visit.  When I looked outside, he and Blake were working hard on Casey's truck.  They had all the cleaning supplies and vacuum cleaner outside.  

I went out to join them and told Casey, "Aww honey, you are nesting!"  To which he replied, "Huh? Nesting? Nah mom...I am just detailing ma rig. Gotta get it ready for the baby." 

Yep, son, you are nesting. :)




Casey is going to be the most amazing father!! That is one thing I am very proud of, I raised four amazing young fathers!

Friday evening I went to dinner with Garrett and Blake, and we had a wonderful time!  I love that my boys enjoy my company...I sure enjoy theirs. 
Saturday we were invited to attend an amazing baby shower hosted by Brianna's mom and her entire family.  Brianna's mom did not miss a single detail.  The decorations were adorable, the company delightful and the food delicious!





Unfortunately, Jack had to work, but Blake and I were there, and Garrett and Genevieve showed up later to surprise Casey.  Casey was so thrilled to have big brother Garrett there.


 They even had a little wedding cake for Casey and Brianna to celebrate their marriage.

We played fun games, Casey and Brianna got so many wonderful gifts, and it was great fun had by everyone!  You can see the full album of photos *HERE* in my Flikr Album.

I also made them another home movie to add to their collection.  :)

Thank you so much to Brianna's mom Brandi and all of her family for the amazing party.  It was wonderful to meet everyone, and come together to celebrate our Casey, Brianna and baby Axel who will be here any day now!

Life is good, and we are very blessed.  

Until next time...enjoy life, and be kind to one another.


Peace.
