Meet the new COO of LDP, Asher

Personal

He is small and sweet and social and so, so happy and I’m truly enamored in a way that I’ve never been before and didn’t quite expect.  I had Asher 6 months ago today after 9 months of heavy prepartum depression and a tiring labor.  Two weeks early, 17 hours of contractions, and an emergency c-section later (goodbye, birth plan!), I had a wiggly, tiny, bird-like baby weighing in at 6lbs 2oz.

For a while we called him Mr. Magoo because he was so wrinkly and weak.

And he rocked a sweet mullet!blog-DSC04305

Eventually he filled out with plump cheeks, a melon for a noggin, and a dusting of hair. blog-F00A8806

Possibly because I kept expectations quite low on the reality of life with an infant, he has been so much more engaging and fun than I ever imagined.  It is wild to watch him get bigger and become more able, interesting, and interested every single day.

He lights up when he sees his daddy and goes into giggle fits from silly noises.

I look at him often and wonder: who are you going to be?  Will you be kind?  Will you be a jerk?  Will you love the arts?  Will you be good with numbers?  Will you marry?  Who will it be?  Will you be tall like your daddy or short like your mommy?  Would you vote for Trump, Hillz, or Bernie?  Will you always have this perfect laugh?  Who are you?

I always thought wanting to eat the baby but just a phrase but it’s more than that.  I want to envelop him and even miss pregnancy and feeling those rowdy movements and endless hiccups.

You’ll be seeing more of Asher’s blue eyes and cleft chin as time goes on but, more importantly as far as the blog is concerned, you’ll be seeing more work.  The baby is in daycare now and I’ll be able to delve into business in a way I haven’t for quite some time.  2016 marks Lindsay Docherty Photography’s 10 year anniversary and it’s shaping up to be one of my best!

I feel extraordinarily lucky for my phenomenal husband, patient clients, supportive family, and my little nugget.  This upcoming year will be amazing as both this tiny human and my dear business grow.

Stay tuned for it all!

“When you hold your baby in your arms the first time, and you think of all the things you can say and do to influence him, it’s a tremendous responsibility. What you do with him can influence not only him, but everyone he meets and not for a day or a month or a year but for time and eternity.”
~ Rose Kennedy

The summer? Bah! That was nothing compared to what’s coming this fall. Hold on to your hats because there is a world of Lindsay Docherty Photography coming at you over the next few months. My mind is spinning and it’s hardly begun yet. This is my last totally wedding/engagement session - free weekend til December (yes, December!) so I’m taking a wee trip. I’ll be incommunicado til Wednesday because I’ll be paddling down the Delaware River for the next few days. “My, Lindsay, I had no idea you kayaked,” you say. Well, that’s because I haven’t. It will certainly be an adventure and will likely hurt. But I’m one tough cookie. I am und ...

She’s been around through some of the hardest and most spectacular times in my life. She has comforted me when I’ve cried and joined in on dance parties when I’ve celebrated. She has lived with me in 5 different states. She can be too smart for her own good. She is the best cuddler I know but has a problem with bed wetting. She loves to run but has no patience for my hobby of running just for the sake of it. She’s a great listener. She has a mouth on her, but only really in front of her friends. She thinks naps are just about the greatest things in the world. This superlative also extends to basking in the sun, unattended food, road ...
