Two Thumbs WAY Up:)

I hear they grow up in the blink of an eye. That seems pretty quick and I don't want to miss a beat. A friend referred me to Jennifer Fauset. Jen does all sorts of amazing photography. I'd seen some of her work in the engagement collection but never with children. Today I had the pleasure of spending a couple of hours at her house with her ADORABLE kids while she attempted to take fantastic pictures of my stubborn son. The pictures turned out amazing...the "attempted" comes from the fact that she just couldn't get exactly what she wanted.

Like all newborns, Canyon spends most of his day sleeping... so we didn't think we'd have trouble taking some glamour shots while he was zonked. Little did we know that he is more like his father than I could've ever imagined. The stubborn little guy woke up when we arrived and stayed awake for a full 3 hours. Those three hours were spent cuddling him, feeding him, soothing him....but instead of drifting off into a peaceful slumber...he just stared at the three of us, determined.

I can just see sweet Zach holding him last night telling him, "They are going to try and take pictures of you tomorrow, those darn women. Don't conform buddy, don't conform."

The pictures turned out to be better than I could've hoped for. I don't have any copies yet but if you'd like to see some, visit Jen's blog at
You can also view our pics and more by searching Fauset photography on Facebook.

If you're looking to capture a special moment at any stage of life, I really recommend giving Jen a call. She's AMAZING! (link to her website if you want more info:)

I love love love them! Especially the 2nd to last look amazing and he looks too sweet!

Can I just say it is CRAZY to see you as a mom? I guess that happens when the last time you hang out with someone is when they were 14...that is what I still picture when I think of you and Jan!

Congrats on your little family!

My favorite, no I couldn't say favorite because I love all of them for different reasons. But I absolutely love the one of you kissing him. It really captures the tender feelings a mommy has!
