Busy Little Bee

I don't know what happened but I am slammed. I thought I was doing so well, posting pictures and finishing up galleries, but I slipped behind. It may have been the holiday weekend. Or the fact that Julianna has had a ton of days off of school this month. So sorry to anyone who is waiting to see pictures. I'm working my tush off.

On Friday, I got to meet the cutest little girl. I know I probably say that about all of the kids I photograph, but each one just gets cuter than the last. Miss A wasn't too sure about me in the beginning so I left my camera by the door and we just played for a few minutes. She showe me her favorite toys and we looked at a sticker book.

Once she warmed up I started snapping away. These are actually the first few pictures I took. We went outside for a little bit too. Mom, I hope you enjoy your sneak peek. It was so much fun meeting you and your family!!

Baby Girl

I met this little girl when she was inside her mommy's tummy. She was supposed to make her debut at the beginning of the month but decided to come out a little earlier than expected.

I am always amazed at how little babies are when they are first born. Well, miss L was probably one of the tiniest I've held in a long time. She was precious and I had a great time photographing her. Mom mentioned angel wings and I almost screamed with delight. Actually I think I did scream. I picked up angel wings a while back ~ around Halloween time ~ hoping I would get use them, but I totally forgot about them. I am so glad I keep them stashed in my car!

Yisel, thanks for letting me come back and take some pictures. They came out awesome! Here are just a few. Enjoy your Thanksgiving!

Girls Just Want to Have Fun

On Saturday I visited a family who just moved here from Brooklyn. They have a beautiful house and three of the sweetest girls I've met. Poor dad was the lone male in a house full of females though. Even Maggie, the dog, is a girly girl. She loved my super soft blanket.

We did some holiday pictures as well as a few first birthday shots of little miss Charlotte. She was adorable. I brought along a few candy canes that she really liked. She was so sweet with the dog, too. It seemed like they were the best of friends.

Mom, I hope you enjoy your sneak peek. I can't wait to show you the rest!

One Little, Two Little, Three Little Munchkins

I love this family and I am so glad they invited me back for some holiday pictures. Their children are adorable, but mom and dad are two of the nicest people I've met on my journey so far.

Miss Mia had other ideas about me taking pictures today though. She wanted no part of it. Even the lure of a lollipop wasn't cutting it. Still, we managed to get some great shots. Hey Kristina, all three of them are smiling!

Enjoy your sneak peek!

Christmas Wishes

I swear I've got to start bringing a heater with me from now on. It's been soooo cold lately! Still, every time I ask someone to come outside for a few shots, they always do. Even Miss A in her sleeveless dress!

These two were so much fun and super silly too! I hope you enjoy these sneak peeks mom!

More Miss S

Jenn, I know you're waiting patiently for your gallery to be ready and I promise it will be done by this evening. Things are so crazy right now ~ it seems like everyone all of a sudden realized that the holidays are coming. Ahhh!!

Here are a few more while you wait ...

For the Tiniest Shutterbugs

If you have a child who's into cameras, here's a great article on how to teach them about photography.

They're All the Same

Kids, I mean. Jenn and I were comparing stories about our little ones and how, in an instant, it seems like they are possessed. We are in a phase now where my almost 2 year-old will refuse to sit in her car seat. She will arch her back and scream bloody murder. And it's usually when I'm in a rush to get somewhere. I feel so bad having to force her in the car, but I can't just sit and wait it out. Ahh, the joys of motherhood!

Anyway, Little miss S is 2 years old, and although I'm sure she gives her mommy and daddy their fair share of headaches, she looks like a little angel. She was a pleasure to photograph and we even went outside for some snuggle pictures. The weather is getting chilly so I think the luxury of outdoor sessions might be nearing an end.

Jenn, thanks so much for inviting me into your home. I had a great time hanging out with you guys. I hope you enjoy your sneak peek.

This is the same picture as above, just with a different crop. I love it!

I'm So Lucky

I really am. Ever since I decided to take the leap and go into business for myself, I have met the nicest people. This time was no exception. Mom and her little ones were so sweet. Actually, I shouldn't even say little one ~ miss S is almost a teenager. Isn't she gorgeous!

Little mister M just celebrated a first birthday. He had the best smile! Big brother D was a riot too. He told me I needed to get gloves for when I take pictures outside. It was sooooo cold! I'm definitely going to follow his advice next time.

Mom, thanks so much for coming out in the cold, windy weather. You have a beautiful family! Here are a few pictures for you. I can't wait for you to see the rest.

Double the Fun

This was my first time photographing twins and I had so much fun. Not only are these two girls cute as can be, but one of them is in my daughter's Kindergarten class.

I've always has a soft spot for twins. I have a twin sister myself and I love her dearly but it wasn't always easy growing up. Being compared to each other and being labeled is rough when you're young.

Anyway, towards the end of the session the girls got silly. I will post some of those pictures a little later but for now, here are some sneak peeks for mom and dad. Linda, thanks for coming out Saturday. I had a lot of fun and I'll see you at school!

A Day to Catch Up

The weather has been so yucky here lately that a lot of my sessions have either been canceled or rescheduled so I had a rare Saturday at home with the family today. Well wouldn't you know, on a day when it was supposed to rain the hardest, the sun actually came out. So I called two of my families and said, "Hey, what are you doing today?" Both were cool enough to oblige. Of course, the clouds came back, but we were lucky because it was so warm. Tomorrow the temperature is supposed to drop.

On to the cuteness ...

I swear little kids must think I am insane when I show up to a session. I try my hardest to be fun and silly but mister A was just not having it. His little brother thought I was funny though. And, even though I bet mom and dad walked away thinking we didn't get any smiley pics, I think they're going to be pleasantly surprised. Thanks Brian and Kristin for stomping around in the mud with me. Here are a few sneak peeks. Enjoy!!
