Sneak Peek: Noah {NEWBORN}

swoon. Do you know what is the end to a really, really good day? Editing pictures from a newborn session! Especially one as dreamy as little Noahโ€™s was. Now, for those of you who have never been present for a newborn session, they are usually a lot of work. A lot of sweating and shoosing…

    Jamie, Your strong spirit and love for your son are so evident in these beautiful pictures. We continue to admire your willingness to raise your child while your husband honors the United States of America with his service.
    We are so very proud of you as a mom and wife. We hope you win the free portrait because of what you give to America. You give your husband the perfect gift of total support so that he can serve our Country.
    Thank You, Love
    nana and papa

    Oh, how your special Soldier must miss you! He will be thrilled with these awesome pictures… A beautiful Mom and Wife! A handsome little boy! God bless and keep you all. Special prayers are being whispered with deep gratitude for your Soldier and your family. Love from a two Soldier Family

  • Brian LiebensteinMarch 23, 2011 - 10:41 pm

    Hang in there. Don’t know if your husband is part of a large group of Liebensteins from the midwest whose ancestors included a Phillip and Conrad, among others. If so, we might be third or fourth cousins. Here’s praying everyone returns safely to Fort Lewis if that is where you’re stationed. If I can still judge photo feelings after a slight break from taking photos for a couple of newspapers for more than a decade, I am confident Ms. Mandie captured your little fellow’s love of his Daddy rather well. Your soldier will undoubtedly be proud to get these. – Brian Liebenstein of Tigard, OR
