My little family

Albert is almost two weeks old! I can't believe how the time has flown by. I bullied my husband into taking pictures of the baby with me. For the whole 20 minutes I had them captivated, he kept apologizing to the baby stating "I'm so sorry, you're going to be hearing that noise often" when referring to my camera shutter clicks. :) Things I learned - directing strangers is way easier than directing your own family. Strangers will take heed that you might actually know what you are doing. Family just sighs and asks if you know what you are doing. Overall though I thought we got some nice shots of Todd and the boys.

I love how Todd is looking down at Albert, and how it looks like Albert is smiling up at dad (even if it is just a gas smile)

and for my favorite shots, baby body parts!

I think I had about 10 seconds to try to get this shot. It wasn't easy positioning a newborn, and a three year old in a still posed hand position!

My boys!

Introducing the arrival of Albert Tien, our newest addition to our little family! Born ten days before his due date on August 7, 2008, weighing in at 8lb 8oz and 21 3/4" long. Big brother Samuel has been a big help and we all are in love.

Izzy - 10 days old

Meet Mizz Izzy.

She's the cutie daughter of a woman in my DDC (due date club) who ended up being born in July instead of August. Her mom was gracious enough to let me come over and practice taking some more shots of her newborn and her other gorgeous children. I was fairly excited to be taking pictures of other brown eyed kids like my own, and working with more indoor natural lighting. I really enjoyed working with this newborn because it was my first session that didn't involve a lot of crying and sweating (on my end and theirs!)

Izzy and her brother, check out those cheeks!
