{family} Dave, Carol and Ethan

A friend of mine gifted her session to these wonderful people because she thought it would be nice for them to get family pictures taken.  Dave and Carol hadn't had pictures taken in quite some time, let alone a custom photography session.  My friend is going through a lot in her life right now.  I thought this showed great character on her part to be going through so much and still thinking of others.  I was sad for her to miss out, but happy to meet new people as well.  The S family was so fun and easy to be around!  I really loved that they could open up and be silly from time to time.

{children} Rhodes: Three Months

Oh, baby!  I adore this little guy.  I love it when parents let me get my baby fix.  I am willing to feed, burp, dress, hold, and even get in some play time in-between shots.  He was so smiley for me today!  Mom and I joked that he is definitely trying to work up a good belly laugh.  It's coming soon, though, and I can't wait to hear those little baby giggles!  Until next time, sweet man...

{family} Tom, Cheryl, Tom, Susan, Alec, Miles and Graham

Oh, these gorgeous boys!  Miles and Alec could very easily pass as twins.  When I first saw the boys get out of the car, they reminded of those Gap or Old Navy models.  Mom is definitely going to be busy fighting those girls off with sticks, not one, not two, but three times!  This family was so fun and easy to work with.  They all told me how painless the shoot was as we were wrapping up.  That was great to hear!  Thanks, E family, for a wonderful experience!

{family} Joe, Elise, Phoebe and Liam

It's not every day I get to see people from my past, let alone work with them.  I usually turn to Facebook to help find old friends and make new ones.  I hadn't actually seen Elise in person since middle school.  That seems like ages ago!  She hasn't changed a bit - still as pretty and sweet as ever.  I love connecting with people from my past.  I get to see how much their lives have changed and how great they're doing.  It doesn't shock me a bit that Elise has two gorgeous children of her own now.  She was always a beautiful child herself.  Little Phoebe is precious, as is her baby brother!  Those glasses, that dress, those boots, those big eyes.  I could eat her up...both of them!!
