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.
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.
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.
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.
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!
Ellis is 1 year old!
Happy Birthday, sweet boy!
