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 love little moments like this.
Megan is gorgeous just like her mom. Hopefully we will get to do senior photos in a year or so.
See, I told you ; love
I brought my son's little wagon and was glad they enjoyed it. Mom brought suckers, which they enjoyed even more.
Jack in his own little world.
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.

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.

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.

I must eat the baby that lives in the floor.
A very ticklish girl.
Ok Stephanie and Joel, I really hope you get a kick out of this next one after all of our hard work in this room and me standing on your bed.
Like mother like daughter. Pink, polished tootsies.
I love - love this one of Ava. I can only imagine what goes on in that little mind of hers.
We had some fun.
