Anna would like to announce our biggest “Big Change”…
That’s right! Anna is going to be a BIG SISTER!! This is, by far, our most important and exciting change! Corey and I love being parent’s, we love our girls, and we are so totally excited about the new baby! The girls, by the way, are pretty excited too! I’m due in early March, so your thoughts and prayers for a healthy, happy baby are appreciated!
Okay, that’s a tough one to follow, but our/my next big change is…
It’s always been difficult for me to take risks, and “Jaime Lenhart Photography” feels like a big one. The good news is that I have TONS of support from my wonderful husband, family and friends that I think will help make this big leap seem a little less scary.
Photography has kind of awakened the creative side to me that has gotten lost in the shuffle somewhere along the line. I’m sooooooo not ready for this to be a big booming business; I want it to be manageable, and above all, fun for me. But, at the same time I think its time to get out there and see what happens!
I plan to focus on portrait photography. I love to take pictures of newborns, kids, families, seniors, and couples. I have a few sessions lined up already and will be so excited to show you all!
And with all these big changes, it seems like a good time for a new blog. This one has gotten waaaaay too big and ya know, it’s just time for a change. Over the next few weeks, thanks to my tech support (Uncle John and Corey) we’ll be working on a new blog. The new blog will still be our family’s personal blog, but in addition it will showcase my (eek!) professional work as well.
I think, and don’t quote me on this, I try not to pay too much attention to the technical side, that when the new blog is ready, you’ll go to lenharthome.net as usual and the new blog will magically appear. The plan is to have this “old” blog accessible still too.
So, like I said, BIG CHANGES! New baby, new business, new blog! (This on top of my new college semester starting and Cate starting preschool! Hmmmmmmm, am I the kind of person that needs to have a lot going on?) Anyway, your thoughts, comments, and well-wishes are welcome and appreciated. Loyal blog followers…we’ll see you on the new blog!
Happy Birthday, Baby
Here are her 2 year pictures, taken by yours truly. Enjoy.
This one is my favorite. I just love how you can feel their love for this little girl. I love how even though Kevin
is only in a small portion of this picture, his presence as the protector of his 2 girls is consuming.
Uh! This little family is just so stinkin’ cute!!
I Heart Faces Photo Contest
I’m telling you this because looking back over these beach pictures I found that while they “tell the story” of our beach time pretty well, they don’t totally remind me of the girls on the beach. In these pictures they are so clean! Typically, being clean lasted 0.2 seconds and then they were, head-to-toe, COVERED in sand. Anyway, clean or covered in sand, our little surfer girls sure are cute!
This one “tells the story” perfectly. Anna (above) splashing like a wild woman and Cate (below) looking at us like we’re crazy.
The girls played “car” a lot. They would line their chairs up, buckle their babies in, and take turns driving.
I call this one, “I hope you still feel small when you stand beside the ocean”. Cheesy? Yes. But true? Oh, yes.
Love this one.
First this the our place named ‘Lovin Life’ taken from the beach dune entrance. The pool is just to the right.
Doesn’t Jaime look like she’s also ‘Lovin Life’ on the front deck of ‘Lovin Life’? (This picture was not approved but I like it)
Cate was really into the pool this year. After the first 10 minutes she was actually off on her own using only her water wings. She did still occasionally drink some pool water however.
Anna was also off and running pretty quick. She was feeling pretty comfortable in the ring and as always had to wear her shades.
I think Anna wanted to lean back and have a cocktail in this picture but I didn’t want to share.
Time to get in the pool Mommy!
So, here is the first…fun with a tripod! We took the tripod to the beach one night and had way too good of a time taking self-timer pictures. The girls thought it was so fun to run into place while the timer counted down.
Love this one…
Just as I ran into the picture, Anna leapt out of Corey’s arms and into mine.
