Danielle is only 11, but seems to have an essence beyond her years. She wanted to include some of her pets into our shoot, which was good because I don't think we could have kept them away if we wanted to. Her dog Yogger is here, but she has two cats as well. I love Yogger's sad eyes and face and sweet disposition. He's just one of those lovey dogs that you could take home with you. I love the images of them together because Yogger's eyes are so sad and Danielle's are just so happy and full of life.

Yeah, TWO!

Today is my beautiful Roman's birthday! He is a strong and happy 2 year old. He is so special and it melts my heart everyday that I get to be his mom ; or MomMom, as he calls me. I have lots of images from all of our fun that I will try to post tomorrow.

All In The Family

Three beautiful girls makes my job easy; mom and dad aren't so bad themselves as well. Michelle and Kevin were gracious in allowing me into their home and going along with a few of my ideas. The images I usually love best are the ones that clients give me funny looks over. Thanks for trusting me.
We have a whole series of Kate making silly faces (courtesy of her father's encouragement). This one is my favorite.
Michelle , I would love to see this first image in that frame above the chair in the office. It would be a fun conversation piece and visitors would have to do a doubletake!

A beautiful family on a beautiful day outdoors. Lots of playing and exploring to do before the sun set. Kristi and Scott had fun with the girls, just hanging out and being silly. I love it when a family can relax and not take themselves too seriously. It makes for some honest images and really shows the relationships they have with one another. I chased the little one around quite a bit, as she was always on the go and not interested in me one bit. There was too much to do. I love the one of dad and daughter in the field. Just a simple hug and a kiss, but look at that smile! She's beaming with joy.

A Cool Cat..............Or Mouse, rather.

I haven't had a chance to process the images of my kids from Halloween yet, but here is one of my Roman in part of his costume a few weeks before. This is so sweet to me because he is holding his Mickey Mouse (Gee Gee) and is wearing the Mickey Mouse ears for his costume.
Is it just me, or is this just too much of a grown up look and stance for an almost 2 year old? My goodness, they grow up quickly!

This beautiful little boy could not have been more patient with us. You never know with babies what kind of moods you are going to get. They often change very quickly as well, so you just go with the flow and not force anything and great stuff happens. It was chilly, but with the sun out we managed to grab some stuff in the backyard. I'm so glad we did, because this first one is just one of my favorites. We oohed and awwed when put him down in the leaves and saw this expression. We knew it was a keeper. It was Dad's idea to give him a bath just as we were wrapping up. I had to just pick a couple from bathtime because so many of them are precious. At first he didn't like the water at all - and he let us know about it. But after Dad's hands warmed up and the water cooled down, he was totally loving it.
Joe and Melissa are such natural first time parents; as are Kevin and Darci from the previous post. It's so nice to see how calm and relaxed they are around their babies and how soothed that makes them feel. I told Melissa she should become a baby whisperer, because she just had to shh shh Owen and he would become content again.
It was great chatting with you both as well! Looking forward to more Owen sessions this year.

9 days old!

We were so lucky that this little one was awake almost the entire session ~ those eyes are full of so much personality! We kept the house nice and warm and it did the trick to keep him relaxed and comfortable.
Grant is just 9 days old here and was born on my birthday. We did his mama's maternity session just awhile back too. If you scroll down a couple of pages you will see her. She's the Itty Bitty Baby Bump. This was no Itty Bitty Baby though, weighing in at 8lbs 1oz. You never would've guessed by looking at her.
Darci and Kevin were so tired but were real troopers letting me stay and do my thing. I LOVE newborn sessions, so if you are expecting please give me a holler. We've got two more sessions booked so keep an eye on little Grant growing up this year.
