I Heart Faces: Smiles

I'm sorry - I'm a little obsessed with this picture. When I saw on my facebook news feed that the challenge for this week on I Heart Faces was "Smiles" I nearly flipped my laptop over! Fo-real. Mainly because it was on my lap and I was about to stand in excitement. I get a little carried away.

Look at him. Don't you just wanna tickle him?! If you scroll down after this post, you can see Alexander in all of his smiling glory. What a flirt! ;)

That will be me after this wedding planning and moving out is over. Like a baby chillin' on a blanket, loving life with all smiles. Minus the lack of teeth part :)

Babies: Alexander Currier -- Revisited

Dust in my nose, dust in my eyes, dust in my clothes. Dear allergies, I'm so sorry. I didn't mean to irritate you, but the thing is, I have to move. And you see, I didn't realize how much dust collected behind my dresser, on my bookshelves, and in my closet. Now, we're rivals, battling through a claritin that isn't strong enough to keep us together. Tears have been shed, and I've even began yelling. I think it's time we part our ways. PLEASE.

Yes, my sneezes are sounding like yells. That's when you know it's bad.

But on to the good news, and perhaps some tears of joy to be shed because this is the CUTEST almost-one-year old I've photographed!! I finished editing Alexander's shoot this weekend while Jose's family came into town to help me pack. Every 5 minutes I would laugh at myself or squeal, then turn my laptop around to show them the photo I would be working on. GET A BABY! Ha. No, really, that will be a while.

Caitlin, I am SO happy you were able to catch me before leaving Atlanta because this boy is now on my desktop background. Not only is it beautiful to be around such a loving family, but Alexander made everything so easy for me. And if you need to reminisce on what Alexander looked like as a wee-baby... you can check it out here.

He puts my crunches to shame...

I love this so much, simply for his perspective of the ball. THIS big!

Awww :)

Such a gentle and loving moment...

Who are you trying to bedazzle? Oh wait, DONE!

My new laptop background :)

New diaper? Car? Candy? You can have anything with that face!

Just lovely. I can't wait to get back into full swing! The Curriers were a sweet reminder of why I love what I do. Though I don't mind putting it off a little longer for a few weeks in Spain :)

Alexander Currier

I didn't have a sneak peek for Alexander, but I have something better: His full post! Thanks to the 3 day weekend, I was able to finish editing a majority of Alexander's pictures (I had about 10 I had to finish tonight which took me longer than I expected).

Alexander's eyes are TRULY storm eyes. They have clouds, reflections of oceans, and constantly developing. I mean, I have to say when I looked back at these photos I didn't realize how captivating his eyes could be. Thank you to Caitlin for providing me with a gorgeous backyard set up (yeah!! this was done outside!), along with the step ladder to help me get the shots I was too short for ;)

And without further adieu.... Alexander Currier

A little fuzzy, but love his expression

Alexander: "Hey, wait a minute, I recognize that face! I see her every waking second!" :)

One of my favorites! So much lint on those cute feet!

Tell me, how COMFY do these pants look?! Like the perfect pair of PJ's.... and YES, that is a zipper spot these pants have! No real zipper... but they make Alexander feel like a big boy.

And *gasp* the DOG!!! Completely hamming up the camera!! I gotta admit this one is one of my favorites... look at those eyes. This whole session had amazing eyes! haha.

These were in the backyard. How could I NOT capture these beauties?!

And last.... my ABSOLUTE favorite. It's like a painting to me. I have to say though, that tree is giving Alexander competition for being the most breathtaking element in this picture. But clearly, after you see Alexander's little baby bump, how can you not love this?!

Can we just say it was a scene from Southern Living?! Beautiful home and beautiful family. Thank you Currier Family!
