on the move

they say time goes faster with each kid.  is it also true that each kid goes faster?  because my baby was up and crawling on her hands and knees during her seventh month, much earlier than my other two.  and she skipped the army crawling stage altogether.  i think she just wants to keep up with her two older sisters.  and here i am, just wanting things to slooow down a bit so i can take it all in before it (they) passes me by.  nonetheless, here is my baby on the move — not so much a newborn anymore.

footnote (behind the scenes): Isabella wasn’t the only one on the move that day as these photos were taken by me while rollerblading. sometimes the photographer is perhaps the more interesting subject to photograph.

carol - that’s hilarious! how were you rollerblading and still able to get clear shots? man. wish we lived in the same city. then i could ‘learn’.

a couple weeks ago, my sweet niece turned one! (meant to get this post up earlier)
she exudes happiness that is contagious — and goodness, look at those eyes…
thankful for the time we got to spend together over the summer and the special bond that is forming between her and my girls!  happy birthday serena!

Jenny - Yay! Thanks for posting! 🙂

Patti Block - Since I have known you…you are the BEST! AWESOME pics!

This precious baby was all smiles for me during this newborn session.  Hard to believe he is about to celebrate being 100 days old.  And he is still as smiley as ever.

While my previous post was of a newbie who arrived just after our return from the US, this little spud arrived just before our trip to the US.  Another case of good timing – I am so glad I was able to capture him before leaving China!

Had the privilege of photographing this handsome young fellow last weekend.  His timing was perfect — first, arriving right after my return to China, so I could catch him at 11 days old.  Then his parents said he was up quite a bit the night before.  Perhaps not so fun for mom and dad, but it allowed him to sleep beautifully through his first photo shoot, and allowed me to capture everything right before a big thunderstorm hit!
And I love the little mohawk.  So nice to meet and spend time with you and your family, London.

Rosa - Love the sneak preview! So excited to see the rest. Thanks again, Anita!
