~And baby makes five!~

After having to reschedule once due to rain, I finally had the pleasure of meeting the M family this Sunday. We had gorgeous weather for our session!! Their new 8wk old baby boy is as cute as can be. He was wide awake for the first part of the session but soon fell asleep with a full tummy and a warm cute outfit:) His siblings were so funny and good with him. What a sweet family, lots of laughter from everyone and they did great in front of the camera. I hope you enjoy your sneak peek. Thank you for a fun session!
Happy New Year everyone!!

Sweet family!

I was so happy when my friend asked me to photograph their gorgeous family. Thank you all for a very fun session. To start, cutie pie J decided he wasn't going to have his photo taken that day. It was cool, I understood. So, I asked him to please not smile at all while I was around and my goodness there were smiles abound:) He was so good with his sweet baby brother, they were adorable. Such a wonderful, loving family! I was so glad we beat the rain, it rained cats and dogs the next day. I hope your sneak peek will tide you over while I edit your session. Hope you all have a wonderful holiday.

Tres Amigas:)

Oh my goodness, it's been a while since I've blogged. Been really busy and we've been sick with the stomach flu. My little one came down with it on Sunday and then lucky me got it yesterday. We're all finally on the mend:)
I had the pleasure of meeting three beautiful girls who are great friends. They agreed to have their session at a cool location my previous client chose for her session. I'm so glad they did. I love the place with all it's cool textures and colors. It's soon to be demolished and has sentimental value for many. They were troopers because it was freezing outside at only 46 degrees. We pushed the session back by an hour and a half in hopes it would warm up, did not happen. But that didn't hinder our session. It was so much fun, despite the cold! Thank you L, N and T for a fun session. I hope you enjoy your sneak peek!
Hope everyone has a great week!

Have a great weekend:)

Sneak peek for H family

I spent a fun morning with the H family! Such a beautiful place, made even more special by the fact that Mom and Dad were married in this same location. We had gorgeous weather! What a fine day!! Thank you for a fun session. Young Mr. A kept me on my toes, literally! I got a workout chasing him up flights of stairs, playing hide and seek in hopes of capturing that perfect shot! Oh, I got some lovely shots of him! In the end, all is well with the world especially when it involves strawberry candy canes:)!! Enjoy the sneak peek! Thanks for looking!

Nice to see you again:)

Hope everyone had a terrific Thanksgiving. Our Thanksgiving was so nice, we got to visit with family we haven't seen in a while. I had the great pleasure of meeting the S family for a second session, which included their extended family. What a beautiful day, it was warm and the sun was shining, couldn't have asked for a better session. Just wanted to post a sneak peek! Thank you for a fun session. Enjoy! Happy Tuesday to everyone.

~Funny Family:)~

My session with the T family was so much fun! So comical, I can just envision how festive and humorous their family parties must be! I've never laughed so much at a session, especially with grown ups:) The siblings were either cracking each other up, squishing one another or bickering back and forth. Mom T wanted a photo with her loved ones and she picked a beautiful location. The golden reflection of the autumn colors contrasted perfectly with their dark clothing. What a gorgeous family! Thank you so much for a fun session. I hope you all enjoy your sneak peek. Have a safe, healthy and happy Thanksgiving to you all!

Second chances:)

What a wonderful time I had with the R family. You may all recognize the adorable little girl whom I had the pleasure of meeting and photographing a few weeks ago. Someone was missing from that session, her big brother! I was amazed at his striking resemblance to a "younger" Tiger Woods! What a million dollar smile:) So, we scheduled a second session for the siblings to capture an image for their holiday cards and to take photos of their gorgeous family! So glad everything worked out this time:) It was a beautiful day, definitely not typical for November. We had a great time enjoying the park, the ducks, the geese and the squirrels! We had a couple "stalker" squirrels, one I had to edit out! It was such a nice day I didn't want to leave the park! Thank you R family! Hope you enjoy your sneak peek!

The W family!

Well, this is a record for me, two posts in one night:) I'm editing like a mad woman and thank all of my families for being so patient!! Isn't this family gorgeous?! Last May, they won the bid for my CH photography package I donated to my daughter's school auction. What a perfect afternoon, it was sunny and warm. We had a great time at the arboretum. The two little ones were a hoot! Talk about personality:) We were so lucky to have such great weather. And, I found some fall color, this is the only request Mom had. She really wanted fall color. It's been so warm that many of the leaves haven't changed yet and it's mid November. I hope this works! Have a great week and thanks for looking!

Sweet family!

What a fun morning I had with the R family! The location was at their parents home and what a gorgeous backyard setting they had. We had terrific weather, the sun was shining and the temp was perfect. Little Mr. N did so well. We explored his grandparents backyard to find the many treasures they have here and there. He climbed into a tree house and had big smiles for his mom, it was so nice to have her assistance. Thank you so much, R family!
Have a terrific week, everyone:)

Thank you N family!

What a fun session on a perfect fall day. We encountered a couple light rain showers but we were able to wait it out under a tree. The N family were troopers braving the sprinkles, Miss L. didn't mind the rain one bit. She was the perfect little model. Enjoy! Have a great weekend everyone!

Three handsome little men:)

Such a fun session with these adorable brothers. Our goal was to get a photo of these cuties for their Christmas card and there will be many good choices! Plus, get some shots of Baby W, since he's turning a year old. He was just a babe all swaddled up last year in his first Christmas photo with his brothers:) He's grown so much. He wasn't too happy when we first started the session. I couldn't resist the sad picture with all those tears! Breaks your heart! We used cheerios and strawberry candy canes as bribery:) It was Baby W's first taste of a candy cane and his expressions were so cute. His mom and I had a good chuckle!
Enjoy and Happy Thursday to everyone!!

Sneak Peek for C family

The C family were fun to work with. They picked some terrific locations, very pretty fall colors. We got very lucky with no rain that day, just some clouds to diffuse the sun. Very different from the day before when it didn't seem like the rain would ever stop. Both boys were adorably cute, full of energy and had great personalities! They had some good jokes and were cracking me up:)
Thanks for looking!
Happy Monday and have a great week everyone!

Here's a sneak peek from a great session I had with Little Miss K last week! What a sweet angel! Could she be any cuter? She's gorgeous and was such a perfect model. That smile of hers was so contagious:) Anything I asked her to do, she was game and did it with a smile. Can you believe she's only three?! What a fun session we had. She loved the pettiskirt and I loved photographing her. I feel so lucky and I just love my job! Hope everyone had a terrific halloween weekend!!

Thank you N family!

It was so nice to see the N family again, this time for a session! We had fun at the park. The kids were adorable! I especially love the one of them holding hands with big smiles! Could they be any cuter:) Thank goodness for Dad, he did a great job of cracking them up:) Love the missing front teeth on the little guy, especially since he wasn't happy about having his picture taken. You would never know by this image! Have a good weekend everyone!

Thank you S family!

Here is a sneak peek of my fun session with the S family. One sweet little girl and two adorable twin brothers. The boys had me cracking up! At one point we tried to get a pose of the two boys together and it turned into mini WWF. So cute! Luckily, I had my handy lollipops to bribe some more poses out of them. More to come soon! Thanks for looking:)

Thank you N family for such a fun session at an awesome location, the Crystal Ice factory! What a sweet family, they were so much fun to photograph:) Miss M. is a doll, she was the perfect little model. Luckily the rain arrived the day before, crazy to have rain in October.
