Photo Shoots

 We had an amazing photo shoot last week with one of the fantastic photographers we work for.  
I can't tell you how excited I am by how these turned out.  

Our hope was to capture our family as we are now...  in our element...  in our home.  

I was really nervous that there wouldn't be enough light in our townhouse...  but Jess did a fantastic job!

Meet Holland Taylor Hess

Holland's entrance into this world was...  a little bit dramatic.  

Not only was she almost 3 weeks early, but the surgery that brought her into this world created some rather interesting side effects for her mother.  

I'm not going to go into the whole long story here, except to say that in the process of my surgery, I had a really weird, and rather unsettling (for those around me.  I have no memory of it) reaction to some of the medication that was used in my epidural.

As a result,  She was a little bit late in getting to meet her brother and the rest of the family...  
But meet him she did
And he loved her.
He is by far her biggest fan, as you can see. 

We are all pretty big fans too...  Just take a look at that face:

More soon, when we're getting a little more sleep around here...
