‘Twas a good week around these parts. You?


View our first week of 2012.

Also: Vivi’s second week on Babble.


  1. Addie looking in the window is lovely!! (of course, they all are, but her grin lights up her whole face)

    @pgoodness, She’s such a splendiferous big sister.

  2. yep. That looks kind of like the perfect week to me. 😉

    Casey Reply:

    @alimartell, It involved a lot of hot chocolate with whipped cream (not pictured for guilt’s sake.)

  3. Addie seeing her sister? Melts my heart!

    Casey Reply:

    @OHmommy, Those two, they’re my sunshine.

  4. You take AMAZING photos!!!!! They make me just fall in love with all of these beautiful moments!!

    Casey Reply:

    @Jenn Marie, Oh thank you so very much!

  5. Love your photos! Such talent!

    Casey Reply:

    @Rose, Thank you darling.

  6. Amazing, as usual. I <3 them all. And as the mother of three boys still hoping for one more shot at a girl, there's just a twinge of envy every time you post such girly lusciousness. Not that I'd trade a single one of my little monsters, but, you know, a streak of pink around here would be nice.

    The one that really blows my mind, though, is the one of Emily. If you look closely at that picture, you can actually SEE the contraction she's having. Just wow.

    Casey Reply:

    @Chrysta, Yes! That’s when things got really serious and I was standing there with my mouth open wondering “Do I TAKE a picture of that?”
    Yes, yes you do, because damn.

    Chrysta Reply:

    @Casey, I totally had to scroll back up and look at it again. You’re so right. DAMN.

    While I was at it, I looked at the rest of them again. And in the one with Addie, I realized that she is about to enter the awkward teeth stage. You are SO going to have fun with that. Photographically, I mean. 🙂

    Casey Reply:

    @Chrysta, I just found out about the awkward teeth phase. That was never in the owner’s manual.

  7. Oh what a beautiful week. xo

    Casey Reply:

    @tracy@sellabitmum, thank you, it truly was.

  8. The old wrinkled hands holding that teeny tiny new head. ugh very deep breath.

    Casey Reply:

    @Jamie, makes me want to go out and find lovely old hands to hold my baby’s chubby hands.

  9. I just love your pictures. What type of camera are you usng? And do you use natural lighting?

    Casey Reply:

    @C, Thank you, I have a Canon DSLR and all of these are natural light but I also use external lighting at well.

  10. I see and feel so much happiness and love oozing from these photos.
    It looked like a good week indeed.

    Casey Reply:

    @Kimberly, Thank you. 🙂

  11. Simply wonderful pictures. Thank you for not only sharing your talent, but also sharing bits of your life with us.

    Casey Reply:

    @Ami, Whatever, you are part of my life.

  12. Your girls are beautiful.

    Casey Reply:

    @Sunshine, So is yours. I want to take her picture again, okay?

  13. I love this idea of a week in photos!Is it easier than a photo a day?
    Vivi in the hat? SO cute!

    Casey Reply:

    @Amy, I’ve been doing photos everyday but compiling them weekly, seems to be far more manageable.

  14. I’m doing a Photo365 (taking one day off so it isn’t a Photo366 – which sounds kinda made up, you know?). One photo every day, although I find I do take photos in batches – because of time constraints.

    Meanwhile, I had a very good weekend, got some honey-do stuff honey-done. Your pictures are very, very good – I really like the grandma shot.

    Casey Reply:

    @lceel, I’m totally calling it a 366 and mocking everyone with their measly 365s 🙂

  15. Oh good Lord. Hello, birthing photo that hit me like a contraction and took me right back to giving birth myself. Thanks for that!

    Casey Reply:

    @Larita, No problem, I tend to awaken the uterus in many.

  16. LOVE this post…love your blog! 🙂

    Casey Reply:

    @Shannon McAvoy, Thank you Shannon. *blush*

  17. Week 2 was just full of awesome for you!!!
