A new addition to our family

I can’t believe its almost been a month since my son was born. It has been a sleepless few weeks. Having two kids under two is a handful. I have not had the chance to post any photos of him yet. Now that both kids are sleeping I figured I could at least post a photo and talk about his interesting birth.

My husband and I could not agree on a middle name and I figured after he was born it would come to us. For this birth I had to have a planned c section. It was planned for a Thursday at 2pm. That morning I checked the weather, and it was supposed to be beautiful and sunny. Get to the hospital and they tell me my c section is going to get pushed back a little. So when I'm finally ready for my surgery I heard a storm was coming out of no where. Storms come and go, so I was not worried about it or anything. I never really gave it a second thought. I get wheeled into the surgery room, they cut me open and the whole time I can hear the thunder outside. Then the room turns black. The power in the hospital goes out!! All the doctors and the nurses even freak out cause it was so unexpected. Luckily the generators kicked in quickly but now Im freaking out! I wanted them to hurry up and take the baby out and put me back together . I could not stay calm as the lights kept flickering through out the rest of the procedure. Talk about being a little scared. Luckily the rest of the procedure went without any issues. After our son was born we decided we wanted a middle name that related to thunder or storm as a reminder of how he came into this world. That is how his middle name Thor came to be.

2019 Fall Mini Sessions

It might be a little early to be talking about fall mini sessions but because I didn't have spring mini sessions this year since it was to close to my due date, I wanted everyone to know that I will be having fall sessions. I will be doing them like last year where its 2 or 3 sessions on different weekends. I do not have a schedule yet for them but they will start end of Sept thru early Nov. For those who have signed up to my newsletter I will be sending you the calendar dates and times before I post post online.

If you are interested on signing up for my newsletter please sign up here,scroll to the bottom of the page. http://www.bonnievelazco.com/northern-virginia-mini-sessions.

Don't worry I will not spam you. I mainly use it for notifying you about dates and times for mini sessions and any special deals I might be doing.

Mini Sessions

Usually I always have Spring and Fall mini sessions but this Spring because of my pregnancy I decided not to have any Spring Mini sessions. As of right now, I am planning on having Fall Mini Sessions but most likely it won’t be as many, as I will be trying to juggle a newborn and a toddler…wish me luck :-)

Anyhow, if you want to keep informed as to when Mini Sessions will be occurring please sign up for my mini session emails. In the past my mini sessions usually sell out within 24 hours. This would be the best way of knowing when I put up the schedule.

Lifestyle Newborn Session

As my due date gets closer I am having to rethink some things in my photography business. One of them is how I do my newborn sessions. I am slowly moving from posed newborn sessions to lifestyle newborn sessions. These sessions will be done at the persons home, there won’t be any posing of the baby, everything will be more natural. Luckily I was able to take some images of this wonderful little boy last weekend to start showing some of my newborn lifestyle work.

Cousin Valentine's day session

I wanted to do something for Valentine’s day so called up my cousin who has a daughter about the same age to do a little session together. Of course these two girls have loads of personality, and it shows in the photos. Love them !! I might have to start doing Vday mini sessions in the future.
