Baby Baumgart | jamestown, ny maternity photographer

Late fall, and winter shoots always require a bit of fast work and bundling up … but this year’s record low temps have required a new level of tough; for myself and my brave clients.  Though the experience is a bit less comfortable, shooting in the winter allows the opportunity for beautiful, serene, and unique images.

These two were so fun to work with, and I am looking forward to capturing their sweet little one a month from now!

Jen, you are beautiful

Noticing …

Today is my son’s last day of school before Christmas break.

I will love having him home the next two weeks, but the opportunity of this last “quiet” day is not lost on me. My “to-do” list is a mile long … personally and professionally, and today I intend to put a large dent in it.

As edits, Christmas cards, and final print orders are all wrapping up, I am looking forward to settling into a slightly slower winter pace. I will begin teaching my Spring semester course Creative Modern Portraiture mid-January, while maintaining a busy shooting schedule, and hopefully updating this web-site. I have entirely too many beautiful clients that I have yet to post! Many that will be kept off-line until after Christmas giving is through …;)

One thing that this career has so kindly taught me, is how often we miss the blessings and beauty surrounding us. The noise and hustle of life can easily blind us to it. Watching my clients this year as they realize how beautiful they, and each of their family’s are … I am trying to write on my heart to notice more. Sometimes it takes a quiet room and an image, to see “what we are living” from a new perspective, but how wonderful if we can do so more often.

While it is quiet here … I hope that each of you have opportunity to “take it all in”, as you encounter the highs and lows of this time of year, finding peace and joy through the busy-ness.

Merry Christmas!

Ephesians 2:14 “For He is our peace … ”
