Newborn Portraits – Pumpkin

We got newborn portraits of Pumpkin done by the same photographer who took our maternity photos, and I can’t wait to see those & share some of them with y’all! But you know this photographer mama had to take some photos of my sweet girl too!!!

Of course, as a photographer’s daughter, this little Pumpkin didn’t really want to cooperate and stay sleepy for either newborn shoot (hopefully that lack of cooperation isn’t a trend that continues as she gets older!). That being said, I got a few sweet sleeping pictures, and honestly, I really¬†love some of the wide-eyed shots I got during our little at-home session too.

Aaaand our sleep window was pretty much gone at that point… but like I said, I don’t mind all that much!

At this point Pumpkin’s patience for photos and my light were fading pretty quickly, but you know I had to try to get at least one or two shots of our newest little Red Raider/Saints fan! There’s something so sweet about having photos of both of my girls in these clothes…

If you follow me on Instagram (@bmariephoto), you’ve probably already seen proof of what a sweet guard dog Dixie is for Pumpkin, and the day of our little photo shoot was no different! She didn’t leave the kitchen where everything was set up, and for most of the time she was just barely outside of the frame watching her baby and making sure she was ok – so so so sweet! You’ve gotta love that sweet family-focused nature of Boxers! I also love this photo because I have a shot of my mom helping me with Peanut’s newborn photos, and since she wasn’t here to help with Pumpkin’s photos, I had another assistant step up to fill in!

Are You Ready for Some Football?

This was another great weekend… relaxing, attending a birthday party for one of Peanut’s friends, church, and LOTS of good food made by the hubby. We fit in some DVR’ed shows… including some of the three part series of The World Wars (really good, by the way).

We spent yesterday evening with dinner and the US vs. Portugal World Cup game. We (like many people I’m sure) yelled in celebration as the US scored to take the lead.. so fun watching Nacogdoches native Clint Dempsey play! Aaaaaand then we yelled in frustration as Portugal scored a last minute goal. Throughout the game, you’d swear Max and I are soccer masterminds the way we talk about the game, but really… I’ve got nothin’. A little bit of playing when I was little, and that’s been about it since then. The World Cup is during orientation season, so I don’t normally even get into it at all.

 

As we watched the game, I was thinking about how much I miss football. I’m ready for it, y’all. Football season is my favorite season of the year, and I can’t wait for that first kickoff to arrive.

I’m ready to snuggle into bed propped up with pillows, or sink into the couch with my hot coffee to watch College Gameday. I’m ready for games on tv all day… perfect weekend background noise. I’m ready to take Peanut to games with me. She’s already got the appropriate reaction ready for when we yell ¬†“Touchdown!!!!”

 

So in answer to the classic question… Yes. Yes, I am ready for some football. Who’s with me?

 

And in honor of the good ol’ days and college football, here’s a shot from the Texas Tech game I spent on the sidelines taking photos… I was a very happy photographer/college football fan that day!
