Hanging out at Grandma’s

We went to my grandma’s house up in Boswell, Indiana on New Year’s Day. It is always such a great place to go. The time seems to stand still when we go up there. We spent the night there. I wasn’t sure how “e” would do all night, but thankfully she was “baby no nap” and went to sleep at 6:30 p.m. and slept all through the night. That gave me the chance to hang out with the family for a good old fashion “hen party” LOL. We played bid ucher and really had a great time.

My grandma’s house is really old and nothing has changed in the upstairs part of the house since I was a kid. “E” went up there and I took the opportunity to take some photos of her in the place where I spent alot of my childhood. I chose to do an antique look for these. Whether they work or not isn’t important to me….these really are just for me and my sisters.

The “C” Family~Christmas session

Indianapolis, Indiana

I just love this family. I can’t believe how much baby “X” has grown in just two months. And of course his sister “A” is just as cute! I can’t wait until Easter when I get to meet up with them again. I’m sure “X” will probably be sitting up by then. It is such a joy to be able to photograph this time in their lives. This is what makes this job so enjoyable. I get the privilege to be a part of families lives and get to build relationships that will hopefully carry on into the future.

This past weekend, “X” and his family celebrated his baptism. So we did some shots of him in his outfit for that event.

You may remember this family from our first session back in October. You can view that session here: https://julielawsonphotography.wordpress.com/2008/10/17/a-little-more-of-the-c-family/

God Bless you all and Merry Christmas!

Jen Rinaldi in action

Like I posted the other day, my friend Jen Rinaldi Photography is here in Indiana until Wednesday. I can’t believe that we only have 2 full days left and then she goes back to New Jersey. I’m going to miss her so much, my girls will too. They both call her Jen-Jen. You’ll have to check out her blog for cool photographs that she did with my oldest and my niece, Brittany. Yesterday we went to the old High School/Middle School in my town with my oldest niece to do her Senior Pictures a little early. She graduates in 2010 and we thought that she would really love having two people photograph her. It was nice to get some shots of me in action as well as photographing Jen in action too.

I also did Jen’s portraits. I will be sharing those as soon as I get more edited. Tuesday we are going to Terre Haute to do an urban style session. That is going to be a good time. Tomorrow, we are hitting Mansfield and Bridgeton to see the Christmas displays.
