New Photos at Melissa Hancock Photography

Check out my photography website for more of my photoshoot of Shon and Caitlin’s family…and be sure to scroll down to see Denny and Crystal’s shoot right outside the Woodmark Hotel!

Crystal Maternity…

[This post was originally written Aug 8 and is snatched from my photo blog and content is officially out of date since my sweet nephew is now over a week old! The c section went perfectly, the baby so healthy and a spitting image of his big brother, and tomorrow I’ll be shooting his newborn photos! Name is still TBD, as of Sunday, but maybe I’ll have good new to report tomorrow??]

I’ve been blessed with all kinds of beautiful people in my life, this here is my sister in law Crystal, and she’s such a beautiful person! She is also having a baby tomorrow. After so much anticipation, the countdown is on: in t minus 8 hours she checks in for a repeat c section! We can’t wait to get the word that this little guy has joined the family! He will be the closest boy cousin to my own sweet baby and is already so adored!

See for yourself!

[BTW, Mike wanted to title this post “what comes in, must come out”! Creepy, and yet oh so appropriate!]

Perhaps my favorite from this session

and my own little monsters had to get in on the chair action! I love these cousins!


Preview for Drew and Nick

Can you even believe that my brothers are about to begin their senior year! I can’t, but it is probably for different reasons that most readers out there! I am beyond amazed each time I hear of all the great things these kids are doing, who they are and who they are becoming. Amazed. They are spectacularly good kids and have great things in store.

Now if only we could convince them to come to UW and stay with us! ;)

Here’s Drew. He’s the oldest…by 45 minutes, and he is also Lily’s dream boy. Drew and Lily clicked while he was here. Drew likes long walks on the beach, picnics…just kidding, but he is a fabulous soccer player, euphonium player in the marching band (I got it right, this time, RIGHT??), boy scout and all around cool guy. He’s a mellow kid and is so easy for me to be around, because I feel like of all of my siblings he is the most like me.

And then there was Nick. He is the youngest twin, for all intensive purposes, but is such a strong leader in the family and otherwise. Nick is drum major in the band, another boyscout, and black belt, hard worker and has a great sense of humor! He’s also single, for the moment!

oh yeah, and one of the two of them!

we interupt our regularly scheduled broadcast….

for some headshots.

My mom has spent the last 10 days with us, she left yesterday and every task I’ve done today has felt off because we weren’t completing it side by side. For me, one of the highlights of the trip was sneaking off one afternoon to take some new headshots and do a little shopping.

My mom is pretty remarkable. Obviously she is stunning- a real natural in front of my camera- but she is also a talented businesswoman: the REO industry’s It Girl Woman, a cover girl for the REO Insider magazine, director of vendor services for Freddie Mac/Homesteps! I was blown away by how much fun it is to shoot headshots, adults are sooo easy by comparison to photographing children!

Thanks for asking me to take these, Momma! I’m having a hard time choosing which one to frame for that gallery wall I’m dreaming up!
