Photo Time!

Every year for Father's Day, Connor and I go and get a picture taken with the two of us, which becomes a present for both Jeremy and my father. This year with Jer leaving, I decided we needed to have some pictures taken with the whole family, as we haven't had any done of the three of us since Connor was three weeks old.

One of our friends recently had pictures taken, and she recommended an awesome photographer to us: Lucie Holloway. She's also a military spouse based in the area, and she has fantastic rates and was really flexible and willing to work with us. It's hard to find a photographer that works well with a special needs child, but Lucie was really accommodating, and we ended up not only getting some great shots (over 200 photos-- crazy!), but having a blast in the process. She's got a bunch of them posted up at her website which you can go check out, but here's some of my favorites:








I think that with Jer leaving it becomes even more important to document all those little moments-- Connor will be completely different by the time his Daddy gets back. I'm so glad we went and had this done, and it was so much fun that we might have to make it an annual affair!

Great pictures! How do I order copies?

Great pictures! I know it'll be tough to have your husband gone for so long. The way he looks at Connor is so moving.

Connor's Mom said...

She gave us a CD, Mom, so no ordering is needed!

Hey, Julia O'C-- meant to ask, is Emmett doing okay? Last I heard his shunt might be acting up, and you hadn't updated in a while...

Everything all right?

May I get a copy of the CD? Or would you upload the pictures to the family web page? Thanks!

Connor's Mom said...
