A baby brother for M… Cleopatra Photography – Boston Mass Newborn Photography

ok, so lets just start by saying what an amazing set of friends E has! They (the girls from her work) contacted me asking about gift certificates for their GF who was about to have a baby “any day now”. I was super excited to be a part of such an awesome gift! ahhh so adoreable! and you all know I love my newborn sessions!

Sure enough she did have that baby within a week, she contacted me and here we are… Meet Mr. W.

he was a precious little guy! not  4 lbs little but… little… he was WIDE awake for the majority of the session… but when we got him as relaxed as can be….

he finally gave in and gave up the goods!!!!

I love my job.. have I mentioned that before???? 😉

So anyways… this was an adoreable family… they had an amzing yard, and an awesome old school camaro. I’m always up for anything, so yeah….we used that too!!

I will never forget Mr. M…. He was just such a ham in the most amazing way! I mean at every turn, he was showing me just how good he was at “modeling”.

But it was all so natural…. he genuinely wanted to laugh and jump and play… and he wasn’t scared of me or the camera and all my crazy antics getting him to laugh

and interact with his new “gift”,  baby brother W….

I love the images of them together… I could have snapped all day with these two…

Thank you K and E for inviting me into your home, and introducing me to your amazing boys…. I hope to see you again in the future! Best of Luck!!!

ok everyone…enjoy a piece of their memories…

Where have you been!? Cleopatra Photography update! Central Massachusetts Photography

oh my goshhhhhh! So I just wrote a super long blog post, went to save it and BOOM.. something went wrong, and here I am with no draft!

URGGG… so anyways, here is a recap of the last post!

ok so how I have missed blogging! I just went on a little hiatus trying to get my family ready.. ready for what?

 

Oh a cross-country move that’s all!

YUP we did it! we finally made the move and are here back home (about 30 miles south of Boston)

It’s funny how when your younger you want to leave home, and as you age, no place feels like “home”

After being gone for ten years…we were done, and it was definitely time for a change.

I learned so much over the past ten years. I suffered so many hardships, and yet I REFUSE TO GIVE UP.

I have changed my life so much in the past 6 months its crazy! I started cross-fit and love it… yup I drank the kool-aid… To anyone who puts down the style or technique… don’t be ignorant!!! you can talk to me when you come to my gym…

There is no Pilates, yoga or zumba there… oh and no mirrors….sorry. 🙂 I kid…

anyways

I have lost 35 pounds since January… and almost 70# since I had my son. I feel like a whole new person…I am grateful very grateful… I did this for me, not because I wanted to make someone else happy… it was time for a change and I did it.

Earlier this year, I lost something that I thought meant the world to me, and its funny how now 6 months with it gone… I realized how I didn’t lose it at all.. I left it behind.

So here is to new beginnings…

I have had tons going on, and lots of photos to post during these past 90 days, but I am not going to blog each session separately… I know, I know…

Hey if you want to see all the sneak peeks go check out my Facebook page!

The S family at Lakes Park! Cleopatra Photography {Connected} Fort Myers and Naples Family Photography

Hi Everyone!

The day of the super bowl,

(with my husband nagging about time!!!!)

I ran out and met the S family at Lakes Park for a mini session! What a great time! Little Miss E is growing so quickly.

I was really happy when her mommy contacted me for this family session…

Miss E is already 19 months! Hard to believe that the last time I saw her, she was just 7 days old! WOW

Anyhow… enjoy a few pics from their day!

This “Modern Family” Photography at Lakes Park In Fort Myers – Cleopatra Photography {Families} Fort Myers Family Photography

Hello everyone! I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday and is relaxing! The holidays are draining! BUT! I must say I love the memories they create… moments…. pieces of our history..

So the day after x-mas I headed out bright and early to get these shots taken for the B family at Lakes Park!

What an awesome group… full of laughs, and knew how to make a joke and take one! Some of this group was from the Boston area WOOT WOOT!!! Either way they made me feel like old friends 10 minutes into the session…

Enjoy their day at Lakes Park…

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!! From Cleopatra Photography 2011….

Wow what a day… I have been crazy busy, so sorry this is just getting up now,

Today, was a great day. There isn’t anything better in the world than looking down at my two kids covered in toys… enjoying their innocent christmas morning. Forgetting about everything in the world to just have fun.

We all need that. Fun. We also need love, we need friends and we need our families…

After losing someone really close to me this month, that has really begun to sink in… more  than ever… we all say it, but you never think it will happen to someone you know… tragedy that is…

I will hug my kids tighter, I will never leave without giving my husband a hug and kiss, and each goodbye will last that much longer.

I miss everyone that’s far away today terribly…

I’m lucky I have these smiles…. they make me feel like I’m “home” no matter where my head rests.

Enjoy my babies xmas pictures…

Merry Christmas Everyone…

Well, After K contacted me saying she had 18 people for family photos she wanted done… and in that 18 there was a set of triplets… I was so excited! My first set of triplets!

I Got to Sanibel and as soon as the crew arrived we were off… So easy to photograph! I know I know… 18 people! and they all were great…

All the kids had their own personalities and they shine through in the images!!!!… shy at first.. they all warmed up quickly.
