I sure have been busy!  I got to do a family/newborn/baby shoot, a senior portraits session, and did 2-month-old photos of Maisy.  We also went to a Brewers game with Josh’s parents!  Basically, the week was full of photo fun and some newness with Maisy – I finally got her pathetically adorable frown on camera and she tried out the Bumbo this week and loved it!

Maisy Joy is 1 month old!

… well actually she is 2 months next week but these photos were taken at 1 month.

Being a Mom is so much better than I imagined, Maisy is way more fun than I could have dreamed, and I am way more in love than I thought myself capable.  Every time I look at this little girl my heart seems to bubble with joy.  I look at her and see all the goodness there is to be had in life, especially when she smiles her big, goofy grin back up at me.  I’ve been told so many times to enjoy every minute with this little girl because time will fly so I am trying my hardest to do just that!  On of my ways is by taking photos of her like this.  I’m thankful even more now than ever for my passion for photography because this really is the only way I get to freeze my little girl in time.

My intention for this shoot was to also get her outside but that just didn’t happen.  Maybe for her 2 month I can do the outdoorsy things I had hoped to accomplish in the 1 month… we will see.  What I did do though were some basic shots of her because I want to do the same shot every month for a year to better see how she’s growing and changing.  I also did some on the quilt I made her and photographed her adorable little details (eyes, mouth, etc).  I’m also tickled that I got some photos of her with Grammie and even me!

a Photo a Day | June 16 – 29

I went into labor on June 16, finally had Maisy on June 19, and stayed at the hospital until June 21 as my husband and a bunch of fantastic family and friends moved us into our house.  Finally, on June 21 my husband brought me and Miss Maisy home and I’ve been figuring this mom thing out while trying to unpack and catch up on my photography work… all while trying to rest and recover from giving birth.  The past two weeks were not forgotten photographicallly though!  During labor my doula took some beautiful photos on my phone.  After birth and ever since I just can’t take enough photos of Maisy!

Meet Maisy Joy Calhoun!

I know now-a-days  it is customary to immediately post pictures of big life events on Facebook.  I just couldn’t do that.  Firstly, I’m a photographer and I wasn’t about introduce my baby girl to the world any other way than with my fancy pants camera.  Gotta do the little lady justice!  Secondly, I know that eventually I would post pictures of her on the web but I stubbornly wanted to keep her from that… even if just for a little while.

Yesterday I did it.  I took some pictures of my precious Maisy.  It was actually hard for me to make myself take pictures of her when all I really want to do is stare at her with my own two eyes and hold her all the time.  I could only manage a few photos because we also just moved. We closed on a house the day after Maisy was born.  So, my house is slowly but surely being put together and boxes are getting unpacked but I certainly am limited in how creative I can get with pictures for now.  I figured that’s alright though because, in reality, y’all just want to meet her and I don’t need gobs of photos to do that!  Besides, I have a lifetime to take pictures of my little beauty!

Anyway, with no further adieu, meet my daughter, Maisy Joy Calhoun!
