Riding the tracks

LOVE LOVE LOVE these images and this little guy! He is truly one of the cutest little guys ever - he's neck and neck with his cousins.... good genes run in this family and I always love getting to photograph them! (if you've seen my "what happens next card" - that's one of his relatives)

just a muffin, right??

baby blues times two!

I don't even have to tell you how excited I was to get to photograph this beautiful family - all you have to do is take a look to see why they would be a photographer's dream!! Thanks, H Family, for a fun time together!! (and I love that mom could recall the kid's favorite book word for word BY MEMORY!!! -- and it wasn't a simple story!!)

my favorites are always those stolen kiss moments...

sweet summer family

I really have to thank this sweet family -we got rained out the most I've ever had with a single family:)! But think it was totally worth it... love love love the sweet images and moments we were able to capture. They dodged mosquitoes, sweat and still laughed almost the entire session!! What a beautiful family!!

the three cutest muffins!!

love their giggles and easy way with each other....made me want to laugh the entire session:)!!

Beauty that radiates from within... Vizcaya Quince

V looks like a true princess - but the best part is that her beauty starts from within and radiates outward. I was honored to get to photograph V for her headshots (she is a Bluedog student ) and was so excited when they called to book for her quince photos. As hot as it was, with 6 million mosquitoes, she never complained or tired of being in front of the camera. She is a true beauty!

like a fairytale princess, right?!?

even out of the fairytale gown she still radiates an elegance and is stunningly beautiful...

love this...

BUT this one!! wow!! the eyes!!

ready or not... here he comes!!! (9 days and counting!!)

I wasn't entirely sure that I would have a shoot this morning with E & D - the due date for their little guy is in ONE WEEK!!! yes - one week - :)! doesn't E look incredible? I was half expecting to get a call saying that they had gone into the hospital!

I had a blast with these two and am so excited to spend the next year with them - they are so sweet!

welcome to the world!

welcome to the world, sweet girl!! looking forward to sharing this year watching this little one grow

the big trade off...see below

so we made a trade - I got to photograph a shot mom and I wanted for a shot that dad wanted desperately ~ you'll see why I say it's a big trade. I thought I could just quietly take the shot, can it -- but then mom actually dared me (double dog dare might have been the exact words:!!) to post the image to the blog....... ok, T, never can back down from a dare. Here is for all you star wars fans....

our shot...

dad's shot...

and here are the beautiful parents....congratulations, guys - I always have a blast with you!! So excited to see what we do for the six month shoot!! (hot air balloon...trapeze artists...hmmmmm....)

Celebrating 60! Happy happy Birthday!

Happy birthday to this beautiful wife, mom, sister, friend ~ it was so touching to see how loved D is. I had the honor of getting to photograph a family portrait session and the start of D's 60th birthday celebration. Although I was nervous about the 3 under 2 factor - it really didn't end up being a factor at all... I LOVE their family image.

doesn't D have the look with her poise and grace of Jackie O?? (this portrait makes me think of her)

sweet moments

sweet sisterhood ~ it's obvious how much these sisters love each other and seem so united and supportive of each other

love this one...

ying and yang

I had an absolute blast with these two - just sweet as can be with me, with each other, with everyone that we came into contact with. It was such a fun morning and I loved getting to meet M and S - even more excited for their August wedding!

at first they seem world's different - he's from Scotland, she's from Ecuador - she loves beach, he isn't fond of sand! but after hanging out with them for a few hours, I think they are a match made in heaven and I'm even concerned my fondness for them will translate into getting choked up as they come down the aisle!!! Keep an eye out for their wedding blog post - kilts, bagpipes, more sand!! this is seriously a wedding I am anxiously awaiting!!!

this is where it started ~ he proposed to her here ~ on one knee no less:)!! yes, definitely going to tear up at the wedding:)!!!
