Foto Friday ~ Emotion

Its Foto Friday, and the theme for this week is...

 "Emotion" 

I've been wanting to share some pictures that fit this theme perfectly, but I didn't know how to share them until now...

One of the first projects I worked on this year was a scrapbook for some dear friends named, Lisa &  Alex and their baby boy, Asa. I haven't shared the pictures of the scrapbook yet because we wanted to give her the album first to avoid spoiling the surprise. The scrapbook is a very delayed baby gift my friend, Jen Counter, and I promised Lisa last year! Jen is this fantastic photographer (she's awesome), and she took some beautiful pictures at Lisa and Alex's baby shower and some of Lisa during her pregnancy.  My part of the gift was to put those amazing pictures into a scrapbook, and unfortunately it took me almost a year to get that done for her (Asa turns 1 in a couple of months!) . The great thing was that we gave it to Lisa last week when she least expected it, and her reactions were just great! So I happen to take some shots of her as she flipped through the book.

They exude Emotion!

First off I I have to say it that it makes such a difference to scrapbook with beautiful pictures, so I want to share a few pages in the book so you can see what she is reacting to...



 Here are her some of her reactions... Enjoy!

 






Don't you love it!
You can feel her excitement and her surprise as she flips through each page.
She was so cute!

To be honest, I wish the quality of the pictures had been better, but the lighting was bad in the coffee shop, and it affected the look a little bit. However, I wouldn't trade them for the world as long as I can remember her reactions like this.

It was a wonderful morning for all of us! Jen and I gave this too her with a lot of love, and we were soo happy to see how happy it made Lisa. She told us it was the best gift she had ever received. Awww...soo sweet!

Lisa and Alex, we hope you enjoy it always!

Thanks for stopping by and Happy Foto Friday from my corner to yours...
