Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you all know that I have a new blog. I am changing blogs so that I can display my photos in a new and beautiful format. I am so excited about it and couldn't wait to share it with you. You can check out my new blog at www.chappellphotoblog.com. I will be posting only on that blog from here on out, but for those of you who are nostalgic or want to view my 2008 work, feel free to continue to browse this blog. Thanks for making this transition with me! I promise that there will be plenty of new posts to come.

This past weekend was my Mom's birthday, and knowing that we are not up for traveling quite yet, she came down to visit and celebrate with us. It was a very fun weekend. On Friday, we went to a park to enjoy the amazing 70 degree weather (who knew there would be snow 2 days later). I absolutely adore my mother and I am so grateful for her! It was so fun to celebrate her this weekend for being the wonderful mother and grandmother (Mom-mom) that she is. While she was here we worked very hard to coax some smiles out of Hayston. He is showing us his adorable happy faces more and more right now, so about an hour and 100 pictures later (thank goodness for digital) we were able to finally capture his amazing little happy face. So here are a couple happy birthday smiles!
Hayston's first adventure to the park...love this next crazy talking face...Finally the BIG smile!Check out his adorable right cheek dimple...just like his Dad...don't you just want to kiss that little face?All that smiling is hard work for a baby, so he took a little snooze curled up on his Mom-mom...Happy birthday Momma, we love you tons!

On Wednesday Hayston and I went over to a friend's house for his first "play date." Miles was born just a day after Hayston but weighed almost 3 lbs less than our big guy. We had so much fun hanging out with Miles and his wonderful family! Chelsea (Miles' mom) and I are hoping that Hayston and Miles will be great friends one day. While I was there I took a few photos for Chelsea of Miles and his big sister Ada. They are such an adorable family!! Here are a couple of my favorites...love the blue eyes!big sister Ada...I love this series of Ada eating lunch...so adorable!some Mommy time...love this one!
I can't wait to pull out this picture of Hayston and Miles laying side-by-side when they are older...(so embarrassing)BIG stretch...and lastly, I think my favorite from the day...Thanks for having us over guys!

For the last week or so I've been too tired to think about taking pictures of Hayston, but yesterday I missed my job as a photographer, so I decided to bring my camera back out. I have to say that I'm so glad I did because I was able to capture a couple sweet moments in our family's day-to-day life, especially between John and our son. It was such a good reminder to me of why I LOVE what I do. I love to capture the often missed moments in life. Hayston is growing and changing so much, so quickly, I don't want to miss out on what makes life with him so special. I have always felt it is such a privilege to be invited in to my client's lives and be able to capture these kinds of moments for them, and it was so much fun to have the opportunity to do it for my own family. So, thanks to all of my clients for letting me into the precious moments of your lives and inspiring me to cherish them in my own. Enjoy this glimpse into our family and home! Hayston is still pretty sleepy all the time, but I love his BIG yawn!it's the little things...like sweet little toes!John had a late night with Hayston the night before last, so the two of them ended up taking a little snooze last night after dinner. It was a beautiful moment!I don't think there is anything sweeter than a baby falling asleep on it's Dad's chest. I'm so glad I captured this moment between my guys...Hopefully, there will be more sweet moments to come!
