Baby Lucas

Just over a week ago I went up to my sister and brother-in-law’s house – not just to visit with them, but also to meet their newest addition, my sweet little nephew.  The joy I felt when seeing my sister walk out with a sweet little man in her arms was nine months in the making, and just too much for words to ever portray in full justice.  I love my sister and brother-in-law so much; when they told me they were expecting I couldn’t have been more excited for them.  They have both been such role models in my life – my sister with such a levelheaded attitude and teaching me by her actions and Joe showing me to enjoy life (a few pranks here and there won’t hurt anyone…except I never will forgive him for that time duct tape was involved ; )…).  I know these two are going to make great parents and was assured of this when I saw them in action last week.  I’m so excited for this new chapter for them, and can’t wait to see the delight this little one brings them!

Oh yeah…so while I was there, I did snap a few shots! =)  Joe is also a photo enthusiast (I told you he’s a great role model!) and I was able to have a little fun using his studio lights, backdrop, and flash.


It was so much fun and I really learned a lot from this:  have your setting on multiple shots (you can’t expect the little ones to smirk on cue!), take different angled shots from each position (I surprised myself with angles I didn’t think would look good actually turning out as my favorite, and even snagged an idea from my mom to view him from higher up), and work with sleepy babies. =)

I can’t wait to torture my nephew in the future with new pictures; luckily he won’t remember any of this and there’s no proof that it was me who put him in that crazy hat!
