I've been sleep deprived and exhausted beyond words...BUT...no matter how tired I was (and am) it's one newborn....at a time. My friends Maura & Kelvin had TWINS; double the work, double the blessing.  Absolutely the most amazing and craziest thing in the world. Exhausted x2. Sleep deprived x2. Maura you are my hero. You must have superpowers. The girls you're about to meet below give adorable a whole new meaning. They're the tiniest humans I've ever met and might just be the cutest bilingual babies out there. I cannot wait to watch these two grow. Maura & Kelvin- congrats x2.   Amo a todos.  THANK YOU & ENJOY!!!       

         

      Sisters are the perfect best friend.......

Welcome sweet baby Mckayla https://jamiesoucyphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/4/welcome-sweet-baby-mckayla Meet Mckayla....who could easily be confused with my daughters baby doll (the cute one, not the one that cries and giggles uncontrollably). Perfect skin, perfect eyes, ten tiny toes and perfect parents (if there is such a thing Mark and Diana are it).  Mark is obsessed with his little girl- and it's awesome to see...and of course for me to document. I am so excited that another baby girl has joined the Hopkinton boys crew. Lucky for me...my husbands guy friends married awesome girls and they're now my therapy...my friends...my wives (it seriously takes a village to survive motherhood). Welcome to the club Diana... you really are doing an amazing job. You have tons of support and people to help pave the way. If I can tell you anything now...it's nap. nap when she naps. Screw the dishes and laundry and anything else that's on your mind. NAP!  love to you both. big big hugs...THANK YOU~ & enjoy ~

Three months old already https://jamiesoucyphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/3/three-months-old-already Everyone thinks maternity leave is heaven. Let me be the first to tell you....it's the exact opposite!! It's hard. And exhausting. And messy. And ugly. And it's really really long....you feel like crap, you sleep in two hour blocks and you leak from everywhere. Gross right? It's the truth! Babies are cute... but they eat CONSTANTLY and poop non stop and boys? they pee on you. Literally. My littlest is three months old today. Finally...and already.  And he's awesome. Now that he smiles and interacts and I feel like I'm actually getting somewhere...it's time to go back to work...which will be great right? I'll keep telling myself that anyway.

I never got to make homemade play dough or see any arts and crafts projects with my toddler through to fruition... but I did stop eating donuts and that's a huge accomplishment...munchkins too. Also, really hard work!! Now that I'm a mom of two...I've learned that it's okay to watch 75 episodes of Mickey in one day...it's okay if your kid sleeps in your bed here and there...it's okay to be mad at your husband or your mom or your next door neighbor. It's okay to pee with an audience and only wear sweats....yoga pants to dress up. It's healthy to cry (daily) and it's also okay to nap whenever possible and leave the laundry sitting dirty for a couple weeks..and then rewash it several times because you forgot to flip it. Somehow... you survive it. Somehow you come out on the other end...maybe not knowing which end is up... but either way... you're a mom and you're awesome and your needed...two little kids need me...ALL THE TIME. I'm going to embrace it... at least for this moment. Tomorrow, I might feel different...and I just might have a donut.

But here... is my three month old-  who I love...and can/cannot believe... he's three months old.  Thank you Mark, family & my girlfriends for being awesome... it takes a village...no joke~ ENJOY!!

Baby Cargan is on the way! https://jamiesoucyphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/3/baby-cargan-is-on-the-way An extremely talented photographer and great friend recently asked me to capture her family in a maternity shoot--okay, okay, maybe I asked her but whatever.... talk about pressure...thankfully she said YES!!! Phew!! I envy Steph’s talent and find myself thriving to be half as good as she is not only behind the camera but as a nurse as well. She’s one of the few people in this world that you truly want to be around. You’ll see below how gorgeous Steph is on the outside too- she is beautiful, healthy and loved by well…everyone! Her husband is a complete stud and their dog……oh their dog!? If you know me you know how deathly afraid I am of dogs…(sorry steph, didn’t tell you that one) but lucky for me their first born Bauer didn’t eat me and made for an excellent model. It wasn't so scary after all! If you love Steph and I know you do…check these out! (And check out her talent here- http://stephaniecarganphotography.comThank you Steph, Reid, Bauer….and most of all you’re super lucky baby girl-   big big hugs~love & enjoy~

Nolan https://jamiesoucyphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/3/nolan After taking a few months off to have my second baby (and give up donuts for good) it feels SO good to be back behind the camera. I can't think of anyone better to start off with than a super cute five week old. This babe has more clothes than I do, huge bright eyes and a mom that seems to already have this whole baby thing down. Friends of the Fradette family are instant friends of mine!! Meghan thanks for being such an amazing mom. He's lucky to have you. Hope I get to meet dad soon....play date? Thank you- Love & enjoy~ 

  

.....and....he's done!

Ryan Andrew Soucy https://jamiesoucyphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2014/1/ryan-andrew If you followed along with my pregnancy on Facebook you'll know my addiction (yes, addiction) to dunkin donuts. Munchkins, glazed donuts and coffee rolls were part of my daily diet. Luckily I passed the glucose test and didn't gain more than 60? lbs. =). Ryan Andrew Soucy made his debut into this crazy world on New Years Eve. I chose his birthday (scheduled C section) but he had already decided on it....as my water broke at home just hours before I needed to be at the hospital. Smart boy. I'm totally sleep deprived and super in love. I took a few pictures of baby Ryan (while his sister was at school) and wanted to share. Thank you for the calls, texts, likes, and many different forms of support. Thank you thank you thank you! Love & Enjoy~   Jamie

The Farrar's https://jamiesoucyphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/11/the-farrars Jamie and I met ten years ago in college through a friend (yup, a Twomey <--a blog fave). I used to go out to Worcester State probably every other Thursday night and hang out with the most fun group of girls ever- and let's face it- the WOO was way more fun than UML!! Jamie was one of those awesome girls and I couldn't be more psyched that we never lost touch.  Jamie was always talking about her boyfriend Doug who was over seas- or in the seas....in the Navy. Totally hot right? And super awesome. Thanks Doug!!!  She waited what I thought was forever for him-  fast forward many years later- and they're below; married with two awesome boys- one of which wanted NOTHING to do with me or my camera. Jame, love you lots. Love your family. So much love. Thank you! ~Enjoy~

Another set of Twomey's https://jamiesoucyphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/11/another-set-of-twomeys Remember in 5th grade when you were asked to write a story about your hero? If I were asked to do that again today I would totally write about Andrea Twomey. Seriously. She is the most well rounded human I think I've ever met (unless my mom reads this- mom you're still my hero). Andrea and Joe have four, yes, four children and they are all.....girls. Joe might be the biggest Boston sports fan on the planet but he produces only girls. Fact. So.... Andrea asked me to take their family photos at Gibbet Hill in Groton (a fam favorite this year). I couldn't turn this one down. I haven't giggled as much as I did that afternoon in a long time- 4 girls, all under 6 and a LOT of craziness. So Andrea- you have mastered being a mom, a physicians assistant and a super model (okay, okay) and this year- you're my hero. Joe and Andrea- keep up the great work. And maybe...just maybe...you should try one, more, time.  love love love to you all- Thank you & Enjoy!!!!

The Garvin's https://jamiesoucyphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/11/the-garvins Everytime someone asks me to take their pictures I get nervous and excited at the same time. When Viki asked me to take her families pictures- I actually couldn't breathe for a second. Okay- lying, but seriously, I was really nervous. Viki is the type of person you want to be excellent for- so the pressure was on. I met her, her two children and six other cousins in South Boston on a gorgeous fall day. Perfect weather, perfectly dressed children and a lot of running around gave us these pictures below- I'm sure they'll make great holiday gifts for the grandparents- Viki- your family is awesome and thank you for asking me to capture them in photos -I can breathe again.  love love love & enjoy- xoxoxoxoxo

Ellie https://jamiesoucyphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/11/ellie Julianne and I met when we were three. We grew up playing on weekends at Lake Winnipesaukee on our boats (I know- you're jealous). Through college we lived together...and now many years later Julianne has married and created an adorable little girl named Ellie. I'm so happy we never lost touch-and she asked ME to take their family pictures. I'm so lucky. Thank you Julianne for being my forever friend- and Patrick for being such an awesome dad and loving your family. It's so evident in these photos-  Thank you- LOVE & enjoy~

Tommy https://jamiesoucyphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/10/tommy Tommy and I met this past weekend for the first time ever. It was pretty much a love/hate relationship. I loved him...but the feelings were not mutual. Lucky for me- he's cute even when he cries. Tim and Lauren were super laid back through the whole shoot and have to be two of the nicest people I've ever met. Tim also went to Groton Dunstable and I think every girl that knew of him had a big time crush (sorry girls, secrets out). Lucky Lauren, you landed an awesome guy and I'm so happy you two got hitched...AND made a perfect baby. Thanks for letting me take your photo's...I hope I see a lot more of the Mersereau's....   thank you- love & enjoy~

Welcome to the world baby Luke https://jamiesoucyphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/10/welcome-to-the-world-baby-luke Baby Luke wasn't supposed to be born for another couple weeks...but he's here and he's PERFECT. You might remember baby Lane from just last year. She's now a big sister! If you know me you know how much I love the Corey's and their now family of four. Thank you Becky for letting me steal your baby for pictures and being such a real friend. We are so lucky to have you guys in our lives... some people just make life.... sweeter. When two amazing people fall in love....family happens.   Love you all- thank you for allowing me to share. Many hugs~ Enjoy

Cam, Jake & rents' https://jamiesoucyphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/10/cam-jake-rents ohhhhh fall how I love you. The colors this time of year are awesommmme! I'm so happy that this shoot finally happened- after rescheduling three times in six months thanks to rain...it was well worth the wait. Krystal and Peter have two of the cutest and funniest kids I've ever met- no doubt they get their personalities from their parents. I'm actually still laughing at Cam and how to his mom he was misbehaving...but to the camera he was hilarious. yup, still laughing. Jake...don't ever stop smiling. You're going to be such a ladies man! Thanks Krystal for being an awesome mom and marrying a great guy who makes a comedian father. Good sports all around- lots of laughs in your house, lots of love and many many thank yous! Enjoy~

The Blanchard's https://jamiesoucyphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/10/the-blanchards Yet again I fall in love with another great family. I met Megan at Stroller Strides, an awesome place where you can bring your babie(s) and get your butt kicked for an entire hour-really, it is awesome. And I should still be going....but I'm lazy and I don't. SO, back to my friend Megan. She's a mom that seems to have it all together with her busy life raising to two very energetic girls. Abby and sweet baby K are hilarious to chase around and they loved the camera. I took a four hour nap that afternoon- This shoot was also at Gibbet Hill in the peak of fall foliage-my favorite time of year!  Paul, thanks for being such an awesome sport and best of luck to you with your house FULL of estrogen. I can already tell you're going to be the "cool dad" forever. Best of Luck- lot's of love and THANK YOU!

The Twomey's https://jamiesoucyphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/10/the-twomeys No doubt that if you live anywhere in the state of Massachusetts you've heard of the Twomey family. They're famous. And they're awesome. And I was lucky enough to take pictures of one of the (many) original Twomey boys and his family. Talk about pressure! Dan and his good looking/smart/funny practically perfect wife Lannon have two children and I'm in love with them both. Not sure if I like Patrick's smile or Liza's thighs more but either way- my morning was full of laughs and catching up at Gibbet Hill in Groton. Thank you Dan and Lannon for being so great- and trusting me to capture a small part of your life in pictures. LOVE LOVE LOVE & Enjoy~

Ava, a perfect 6 month old https://jamiesoucyphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/10/ava Sean and Jess went to GD-class of 01'....and they're kiiiiiind of a big deal. Long story short, they married, live in (yes, in) an apple orchard. They have apples, tractors, 2 cute dogs and best of all....an insaaaaanely cute little girl named Ava. I've never met a baby that smiles so much. Seriously. This is by far my most favorite photo shoot yet...and you'll soon see why. Ava made me look good (thanks, girl!).  Sean, Jess...love to you both. You're doing an amazing job raising such a happy baby girl- I hope this is the start of many hang out/photo shoots =)    There are a LOT of pics below. I'm sorry I'm not sorry!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE ~and enjoy!!!!

Lucy https://jamiesoucyphotography.zenfolio.com/blog/2013/10/lucy I love meeting new people through past photo shoots. Grayson & Quinn's cousin Lucy is the star below =)  I met this very busy 17 month old a couple weeks ago at Lynch Park in Beverly (one of my newest favorite places). Lucy is cute, curious and super into everything.... except camera's. Lucky for me...she likes to have fun and I was able to chase her around for an hour. Here's what I saw on that perfect fall day- thank you~& enjoy!
