Underwater

Remember this post? Well I kind of got to try out my new camera case. The water was too cold for me, so the only pictures I took consisted of me dunking my hand and camera into the water hoping I got things in the frame. Chris…being the dad…was the one to brave the cold water with the boys. I am looking forward to warmer water so I can try it out more…meaning taking a picture and actually looking at what I am taking instead of guessing!

this is as far as I got in the water…

  • Jeannette Swan - You seem to always be having fun!!

  • bopha - How fun, I’m impressed that Rett goes under water.

  • meg duerksen - i want one of those!!

Cal {10 days old}

Little Cal….adorable! After spending a small bit of time with Cal I am more and more ready to see my daughter. I have been ready to NOT be pregnant for a while, but a newborn daughter has still been a little scary. Cal and his big sister were so sweet…he did want to sleep most of the session, but that is what a 10 day old is supposed to do right?! I think this first picture is my favorite from the day…now to figure out how to get my 3 to do something similar with their sister. Probably not going to happen.

While Cal needed a little break to eat his sister and I hung out for a bit. She is SO CUTE!

Just FYI to the first round of SnapShop girls…this is Jamie’s son….

Entering the girl world {9 months}

9 months…the final stretch! When I was 9 months pregnant with Big (my 2nd) a good guy friend of ours commented to me that I was “huge” in reference to seeing a picture of me. A girl never forgets that…so needless to say I pretty much avoid the camera when pregnant – which has basically been the last 6 years:)Chris took a few of me when I was pregnant with Littlest Brother and looking back I am so glad he did. With this little one I let him take some maternity shots in the snow and had decided that would be it. Well we took the boys fishing and the location was beautiful, so I sucked it up and decided to celebrate one last month of being pregnant….you will notice I am never looking at the camera. I cannot smile at a camera without looking completely ridiculous. My friend Shannon is going to do some family pictures for us later…forget 4 kids ages 5 and under – she has her work cut out with me!

By the way, Chris is not for hire. His schedule is too busy as is and I demand all his extra time.

Just needed to clarify that because many of you will want to hire him after seeing these and his Egypt pics.:)

And the real reason we were out there. Our water guns always break or the boys have issues with the triggers, so we use water bottles. They were in a battle and Aunt Lesley got caught in the crossfire. She is a great aunt and is totally prepared if she has boys one day!

bigenjoyed catching fish, but LOVED throwing them as far as he could back into the water. He also found great pleasure in the worm box and all its contents.

Littlest was getting pretty hot, so I gave his brothers permission to help cool him off a bit. They didn’t hesitate in listening to me.

Uncle Eric and my “nephew” Duncan.

Big had to reel the fish in fast and throw them fast…Duncan put up a fight over the fish each time.

My dad and his girls cooking dinner. Why are hot dogs cooked on a stick from the woods so good?

  • Jesse - Huge is certainly not a word I would use to describe you! You are a super cute pregnant mama.

  • Shannon Phillips - Great job Chris! Ash, you look AMAZING! I know what you mean though, I also had one of my guy friends tell me that I was the biggest pregnant lady he had ever seen! Ouch! Can’t wait to do your shoot. I will be running sprints to prepare.

  • Serena - These are amazing!! You are so cute, pregnant! I love the outdoor maternity shots…much better than the traditional bow around the belly and blocks spelling your name!!….Beautiful!!

  • Sarah - You are anything but huge… and you’re certainly beautiful! What’s even worst is when someone asks you, “are you sure you’re not having twins?” or when you’re only 6 months along why they baby hasn’t come yet. Yeah, makes you feel REALLY great! :)

  • lesley - I love your maternity pics! Great action shot of my little dog getting tossed in the water, we had a blast.

  • Lisa - You look amazing!!

  • Shanalea - First let’s just say that I am jealous you only have one month left. I have a whole 4 months and the whole summer. Second you do not look like you are 9 months pregnant. You are looking good.

  • bopha - You look great and Chris did an awesome job on those pics. Enjoy this last month, it will be over before you know it. I can’t wait to meet the newest Campbell. By the way, weren’t you burning up in jeans!

  • amanda torres - my goodness…if you are considered huge than i would have been a F-A-T cow! You look adorable.

  • Jill - You look amazing! I am so jealous because I’m much bigger than you and still have 3 months to go. Needless to say, I have been asked SEVERAL times if I’m sure I’m not having twins. Seriously? Is that supposed to be funny? ;) Great pics of your boys!

  • Ang - I still can’t believe that. You really do look great, Ash. Not only do you NOT look nine months pregnant, you don’t look nine months pregnant with your FOURTH child!

  • Christina Larsen - You look great. Wish I could have worn a strapless top at 9 mo pregnant; wasn’t about to happen. Enjoy the last month, it will go by fast.

  • ashlee - you look awesome for being in your last month!!! never be afraid of the word huge because apparently it dosen’t apply here:)

  • Jeannette Swan - Amazing pictures…I’m jealous again…1st, I was never a cute pregnant person and 2nd, my maternity pictures are so dorky compared to these!! If you want to see “huge”, I can show you the pics!

  • Georgia Davis - Love the pics. Since I just had a baby I will remind you of the upside to being nine months pregnant, your stomach is as firm as it is going to be for a while! You look adorable.

  • Emily Lusk - Whatever guy that was that said you looked huge was crazy!! I really wish I looked the way you do when I was nine months pregnant with only my second!! You look great and I am amazed that you are sitting on the ground cooking hotdogs!

  • Angie - You look beautiful!!

  • linda geertsen - Uh yeah! Amen to Jesse’s comment (and everyone else’s)! You are stinking cute as a pregnant woman who is 9 months along. Great photos!

  • Ashley - Where oh where did you get that stunning top? And my goodness, you are absolutely stunning yourself in these pics! I am nine months right now and I have been avoiding the camera like the plague after someone at my 6 month mark asked if I was “due any day, right?” ha! love your blog!
