Work in progress.

I’m in the process of building a new website! Now, between kiddos, shoots, and everyday life, I anticipate this is going to take a while. If you would like to see some of my more current shoots, check out my Jamie Deurmeier Photography Facebook page.

Thanks!

Baby Michael

It’s always a delight to photograph families through their different life stages. From engaged to married. From pregnant to having a newborn. From one child to two…

The wave of love that suddenly covers you when you welcome your baby into the world is indescribable. It’s something that can only be experienced or reverently observed. If you’ve experienced it, it’s easy to recognize in others. These guys are swimming in it.

Congratulations to Angela and Jason! Your little boy will make your hearts grow in love more than you can ever imagine.

Happy 1st Birthday, Riker!

Usually, these sessions will have a little break for the baby breakdown…not a dance (though, I wish it were a dance!), but an emotional breakdown. It’s pretty standard. Kid’s are cool with the camera until they just aren’t anymore and then they let you know it. No big deal, just part of the routine baby shoot. So, I was pretty amazed at how easygoing little Riker was. He didn’t complain. Didn’t cry. Didn’t even notice me too much, making my job incredibly easy-peasy. And the cherry on top was that he was smiling the whole time! Stellar!

Happy birthday, little guy!

May this year be as happy and easygoing as you are.

Daily Life: Eliot’s Birthday Breakfast

This year we took Eli out to breakfast on his birthday. He wanted to go to a little cafe downtown for pancakes. So, after dressing up in our Halloween costumes we headed out. We were lucky enough to be seated at the window where we had front row seats to watch the crowds of children dressed up for trick-or-treating in the village. We saw dragons, princesses, Waldo, witches, a Cabbage Patch Kid,  a chicken, a gazillion Spider Mans, the Flintstone family, and more superheros than you could count…all pint sized of course, which made for a very entertaining breakfast. Needless to say, we had a hard time getting Eli to focus on eating. It was just too much fun.

Eliot’s Halloween Birthday Party

The weeks leading up to this have been busy busy, but also a lot of fun. Picking out music, fabric for costumes, decorations, goody bag treasures, pumpkins, painting signs, making and sending out invitations, etc. Eliot was right in the middle of it all giving each detail his little seal of approval, so the party was that much more special. It was something that we did together (as much as it could be) and it was created with his likes in mind. Of course, it was a team effort! I am so thankful to all the family and friends who pitched in to make Eliot’s party a memorable one. Without their help I would have had to have grown a few more pairs of arms to get it all done.

Thanks for all the effort and love you all put into this day!

And thanks to Erik and Uncle John for snapping some photos!🙂

Angela and Jason

We cut it pretty close, but we were able to fit in a maternity shoot before Angela’s delivery! I’m so glad we did. During the shoot I kept thinking (and saying out loud), “You guys are so ridiculously good looking…it’s just silly.” They were both glowing! You can see the joy and excitement that overflowed from the anticipation for the arrival of their baby boy who was to be born literally at any time! Their love and connection is so sweet. I can only imagine how it will carry over to their little one. And I am so happy for how their hearts will grow when he finally arrives in that sacred moment. Everything will change. Love will, somehow, be better than they have ever imagined it could be.
