The promised flattering shots



Hudson James at one week old.

Last week my friend Holly came over with a black fleece and ideas for a photo shoot.
She was all on the ball too and I should have just hopped on here and made a link to her blog because she posted the  photos she took that night.
You have got to check her post out!
I stole some of her shots so here are some of mine and some of hers.
this is one of her adjusting Hudson. I just love hands....more hand photos to come soon.
Thank you Holly for the awesome afternoon!












So here we are now a week and a half into life with Hudson.
I am healing really well and feeling pretty normal. Still toting a front bum on my belly but it is shrinking every day. 20 lbs to go though, yikes! I have a feeling this will not be a bikini summer!

Love all the pictures - going to check out your friends website. Kaitlyn and E are growing up so fast.
Tell Grandma MA that every time I look at a new picture of Kaitlyn that K looks more and more like her.
Grandpa is on the highway today working so I will update him on the new pics when he gets home.
Love to you all, give Hudson a kiss and hugs and kisses to K and E from all the family in Edmonton who wish they lived much, much closer to you right now.
Grandma MM.

Love all your pictures of your sweet little ones. How fast they grow! :)

And hang in there, you will be in a bikini before you know it!

Oh my word, my useless ovaries are hurting! The cuteness! All three of them and those shots of Hudson on the fleece, LOVE THEM!

Glad you are recovering well!

Love the photos!!! Some of the shots are very Anne Geddes-like and she is my favourite baby photographer! Good job Dave and Anna - Hudson, Ethan and Kaitlyn are definitely little gems!!!

Hannah said...

WOW!! Those photos are totally gorgeous and look like they should be an on Anne Geddes calendar! Just beautiful. He is an adorable baby, and Ethan & Kaitlyn look the part of besotted older siblings. Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful family, Anna!

Oh these are just precious! What a sweet little sweetie! ; ) Sounds like you all are settling in...

Loukia said...

OH MY GOODNESS... sooo cute... lovely pictures! Beautiful! :) And don't even think about the weight you have to lose! I am nowhere near ready for a bikini and my youngest is 16 months old! Just take care of you and your precious baby and children!

Gorgeous shots, what a sweet, sweet face!

And I love the shots with big brother and sister, you can see the love shining.

Don't worry about the bikini, your boy got pretty big in there... that being said, I bet you'll bounce back faster than you expect.

MJ said...

Sweet! I particularly love Ethan's expression in the last photo!

Sandy said...

Beautiful Pics, you have gorgeous kids!!! I bet Kaitlyn and Ethan adore their new baby brother.

Jaden Paige said...
