There is an old saying, "The Cobbler's children have no shoes". Which basically means that the cobbler puts so much time into other people's shoes he doesn't have nice shoes for his own kids. Well, nothing rings truer in my own life. Yes, Ray and I have our Portraits taken bi-annually, but I haven't had a proper family picture with my family for quite some time. Honestly they are all pretty hard to convince (sound familiar?), even the photographer has trouble getting her family in front of the camera. My Brother and his girlfriend are expecting their first child this January.  I've been hounding them for months to let me photograph their Maternity portraits, they had all plans of just skipping them. I wasn't about to let this moment pass with out documenting it. Finally they gave in, if for no other reason than to shut me up { ;) }  The beginning of November our schedules actually met up, which during the Christmas season is a miracle for me.

I always laugh at the amount of people my brother knows, and this day was no exception.  Our session only last about an hour, but with in that time my brother managed to spot one of his friends driving by while standing in the middle of a field posing for the blanket shots. Anyone who says my brother isn't a great multitasker has never witnessed this phenomenon. Because of this I have great faith that when left in her daddy's care, my new niece will always have an eye on her, no matter what else he is doing. He doesn't miss a trick!

So now it's just a waiting game to meet the baby, the next few weeks are going to drag on for sure. I suppose in a few months I should start working on getting my parents into a real full family portrait, once the baby is a bit older of course.
