I shot my neighbors....................

It's ok, they asked me to. ;)

They are a beautiful family with lots of love between them.

Austin is so photogenic and pretty much always has a smile on his face.

I brought my son's little wagon and was glad they enjoyed it. Mom brought suckers, which they enjoyed even more.

I have such a hard time narrowing it down to just a few for the blog. Each image offers something different and I always want to be able to share that. This one offers Happiness.

Paytie Cole

IMG_4241

I finally got to see my Great Niece Payton when I went home to do Josh's senior session (see previous post). We only had time for a few quick images inbetween everything else, but don't you love how much personality and insite you can get from a child. It's just right their on their face. She is four and she is mama's and Grandma's baby. Actually Grandma isn't Grandma, she is Nan. My sister is just too cool to be "Grandma". ;)

You know, we hear it and say it all the time; how each child is so special in their own ways, but when I see children with their families and the things they say and do and their own little ways of connecting with each other - it is true. We all have the same thing in a slightly different package. The love, the happiness, and the real joy from the little hearts that walk around outside of our bodies is what keeps us focused and real and be able to get up and do it all again the next day. We work hard for them, we play hard for them, and we generally don't have a lot of time for ourselves, but it's ok. We give them that and more if we could.
I love when a parent loves an image of their child or family and it really means something. It's great to be able to record in a small way some of the feelings at this point in time. All of the little everyday things we do and share, I believe is where our value lies. Big accomplishments are of course great and I'm all for growing and being productive in life, but to constantly love someone and as they say "write on the slate of who they are" is extremely valuable, rewarding and a huge responsibility.

I have another lovely family to post here soon as well and I can't wait to show them! They do have to wait though, even though they tried to sneak a peek; just because they live across the street. Who do they think they are?! ;)

And - one more of Paytie in the pool just for fun. She has the swimming gene. This is her in the deep end.

Keepin it in the family.........

IMG_4605

It's so hard to believe my nephew Josh is graduating from High School this year. I am happy to have him as the subject of my first senior session. I got to drive over and spend the day with my sister's family - I haven't seen them in forever. Josh rocked it out with his two guitars and his "angry pants". Yes, that is what they are called - although you don't see them too much in the images I chose to post here.

Josh is a great swimmer like his sister and is planning on swimming in college so we had to spend some time at the pool. When I showed him a couple of shots on the LCD, he said that I have "camera magic". No, I think it's called good genes and handsome guy.

Reagan - omics

IMG_3890

Look at that face! Baby Reagan is almost 6 months old and ready for her close up. Ava (below) is the big sister and always up for fun, craziness, lots of posing and shenannigans. This was a moment inbetween all of the above.

IMG_3957

Our first session was last year with Miss Ava and baby Reagan was still in Stephanie's belly. Stephanie is best friends with Darci. Darci is my marketing guru that works for me for free, referring all and any friends and family my way. You will see her mentioned here often. ;)
