M 4 H – Project 52 – 2014 {Week 3 ~ Inside} – Sherry Lane Photography

Francesca has so much passion for dance roaring through her blood.  She is constantly moving, twirling, performing. She is a natural.  When I was thinking about what I wanted to do this weeks theme I got super giddy at the idea of doing it at dance class.  And it came out just how I wanted it to in my head.

Grainy goodness.

 I wanted an image that was hard to tell the era it came from.  OH what I would pay to have this photo of me as a little girl.  I can’t wait to blow it up for her room.  I only wish she had little leg warmers on 🙂

Week Three – Inside

The passion for dance runs deep inside my five year old daughters soul. I cannot wait to see who she becomes.

M 4 H – Project 52 – 2014 {Week 2 ~ Imperfection} – Sherry Lane Photography

I thought all week about what I wanted to do for this weeks theme…. I wanted to be artistic.  Do something different. Push my boundaries a little…  And then, I got the Flu.  Blec.  Our house quickly turned into little imperfections all over the place! I was just too sick to get up and photograph them.  My sweet Alyssa helped out so much this week with her brother.  I was so incredibly thankful for the four snow days she had off from school!  I was sad to see her go in on Friday!  My little helper was gone!!

Also a HUUUUUUGE thank you to my daddy.  He came over and got snowed in our germ filled house to also help out while I was sick.

This morning Alyssa woke up not feeling so hot.  I was thinking she may have snuck by this one… But I am not surprised she caught it either!  She took care of Dominic so much for me.  And he had it too!

Week Two – Imperfection

Our imperfect week of the yucky flu bug.

M 4 H – Project 52 – 2014 {Week 1 ~ Reflection} – Sherry Lane Photography

I am starting this “project” with a very light hand.  I have tried to do 365 days of photos, monthly photos, whatever the name before and have not succeeded greatly.  I then stress out and feel like a nerd because I can’t even do it!  I am going to give myself a goal of doing half of these projects for 2014.  So 26 photos.  26 random weeks.  I mean, I am not super hero, but I do wanna document my everyday life more.  I am hoping this can guide me to do so.  I think it is the “theme” that gets me.  I over analyze…. and then question myself FIFTY TIMES after I have selected “THE PHOTO” and get all negative nancy on it.  I will try NOT to do that this time – cause if I do, its a set up for failure!

I have followed Sarah Cornish(#my4hens) on Instagram for a while now.  I am not even sure how I found her, but our girls are around the same age and I love watching the similarities between them.  SHE for REAL is a superhero.  She has a very successful photography business and just had her FIFTH baby!  I actually fell in love with her IG feed before I knew how popular she was.  Then I was like, woah!

If you wanna play along, here is her full blog post with all of the details.

Week One – Reflection

The way she treats him is a reflection of me.  I am trying to remember this more and more often, for all of my kids.

Sherry Lane Photography – St. Louis Photographer – 2013, What a Year!!

 

Happy last day of 2013!

This sure has been an awesome year both personally and business wise!  I took the year A LOT slower with the anticipation of our new family member joining us in May!

While multiple things have changes in our lives, it has all been for the good here! I cannot wait to see what 2014 brings for my family and business.

A special thank you to a handful of photographers I was honored (SO HONORED)  to work with this year second shooting at weddings.  It was a BLAST!  Here are just a few that I was able to use for my portfolio 🙂

The rest of this post is FILLED(in no particular order!) to the brim of awesome families I had the pleasure of photographing this year.  I also included some special moments of my own family if you see some familiar faces!

 Happy New Year to you!!

Lincoln Ulysses – St. Louis Birth Photographer – Sherry Lane Photography

Happy Birthday Lincoln!

I am super excited to share this birth story of a lucky little guy who has FIVE big brothers!

I had been anxiously waiting calls and text from Tammy for a few days nearing her due date.  And of course the day St. Louis was to be graced with their first snow storm I got the text!

 5:56am – “headed in!! I will keep you updated! :)”

We had a little snow early that morning so they hit some traffic getting in.

I was super excited!  I had all my gear packed up from already being “on call” for the few weeks prior.  So I got up and started getting myself ready. I packed my kiddos bags and headed to the sitters around  9 am.

 Got another update then from Tammy.  9:34am – Will be starting pitocin and breaking water around 11am!

I knew I had some time so after I dropped my kids off I got some editing done… answered some emails… ran some errands.  Had lunch alone!  First time in a long time! 😀

I got another update close to 1pm – Got my epidural and will be checked soon!

I grabbed lunch pretty close to the hospital, cause you never know!  I wanted to be close.  And once I was all done, I couldnt take it anymore, lol. I just had to get there!

I arrived at Mercy just as Tammy was being checked and she was about a 5/6.   I personally went fast after hitting that point, so I was glad I got there when I did!

Tammy and Dave have FIVE amazing boys already, sweetest boys ever!  AND they are seriously A.DOR.A.BLE!! They were all just hanging out with family members between the birthing suite and waiting rooms.

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (6)SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (7)

^^ That little guy Henry is hiiiiiilarious!

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (8)

That cute little basket was used to put Lincoln’s foot prints on the inside of the lid for a little keepsake basket!  Such a great idea!

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (9)SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (10)

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (11)SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (12)

Lots of fun and laughing going on while mom just labored right along!

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (13)SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (14)SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (15)

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (16)

Tammy loves her some Super heros! I mean how could you not with all these boys around!

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (21)

Tammy started to get a little quiet.  Kept checking her contraction markings on the monitors.  I had  a feeling she was starting to get close!

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (20)SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (19)SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (18)SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (17)

A little visit from the boys’ god father.  And he brought flowers!

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (22)

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (24)

Tammy really started to show signs of feeling some pressure.  Taking deep breaths and closing her eyes to concentrate.

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (25)

It was just about time!

( I have to admit, watching all this when I was just here 6 months ago brought back everything like it was yesterday! )

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (26)

Dave got everyone out of the room and made sure all the big brothers were settled with family.  He was ready to meet the new little guy!!

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (28)SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (29)SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (30)

Letting everyone know, its go time!

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (32)

How adorable are these!  Miss Tammy is a little crafter!!

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (33)SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (34)

Dave was just ready with jokes!  Ready for an arm wrestle?

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (35)SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (36)SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (37)

WHO gave Dave the cord cutter already?!?

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (38)

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (39)

Tammy did so great!  Her contractions slowed a little when it was time for her to push.  But this great group kept her motivated and ready to meet her newest super hero!

SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (40)SherryLanePhotography_Lincoln_Birth_Session (41)

She did great working through the pains!

Each brother got a copy of their new little brothers foot prints to take to school and show off!

The brothers down the hall in the waiting room just could not wait ANY longer!

I wish I would have written down everything Henry was saying!  We were ALL laughing at him.

 “Hims come home with us now mommy!”  “We get to keep him cause hes outta your belly now!”  “Hims crying for a binki!”

I just was in love with how the older boys were just as excited about the new baby!  They wanted to know everything the nurse was doing with him, and why!!

After his bath, he got to finally hang out and relax under his little warming lights.  He sure did like that part!

Umbilical cords are just crazy neat.  Everything that little guy needed just passed on through that one little cord.
