never too old for bubbles

Finally. I am back from medical leave (had surgery, no worries, all is ok) and easing back into work at the studio. I would lying if I said the recovery was easy, but everyday is getting better and I am now in my second full week back to work. Of course, the piles of personal images that I meant to work on during recovery didn’t get the attention they expected. But that’s another story…

The story that these images tell is one that is far more fun! Bubbles are so much fun to play with, whether your 2 years old or 6 years old or even 36 years old (talking about me here!). I did a quick search to read more about them and was amazed to find an entire website dedicated to bubbles! According to The Bubblesphere, the largest bubble made is 50 feet long! My studio isn’t big enough for that, but we still had a good time. The pure joy that bubbles bring out make my camera very happy!




black friday baby

At least I got Thanksgiving dinner this time around!

After two days of start and stop labor starting on Tuesday night, my father-in-law’s turkey did the trick. We arrived home from dinner and two hours later, we were on the way to the hospital birthing center to meet the midwife.

The stopping and starting continued throughout the night and I needed a little “help” from pitocin by late morning, which quickly worked.

My little girl officially arrived at 1:27 pm on Friday. We’re tired, but all healthy and happy. Here she is…

Lucia Cate Hassrick, 8 lbs, 20 inches.

p.s. In case your wondering, it’s pronounced LOO-sha.


baby break

10 days and counting to my due date!

Today was my last regular day in the office. The to-do list is a lot smaller than it was two weeks ago and I was able to post a lot of new images on the studio Facebook page! There’s a few things left to do, but it’s at a slower pace than before. This baby seems to taking a lot of my energy!

I’ll be checking email periodically in between feedings, napping and diaper changes. If you’d like to schedule a session after I return in mid-February, please send an email or use the studio request form.

Thanks to everyone for making 2011 a fabulous year of awesome sessions!
