Mr Cutie Patootie

What a cutie this guy is!!  He totally had me worried - I think he was needing some action - oncel we pulled out the bucket, well, the rest is history!! .  Then,  we could have stayed in the park for the rest of the day!!  He loved the white bucket!!  He is such a doll with those big eyes and round cheeks!!  just makes me want to giggle!!

mesmerized by these lovies!

I absolutely fell in love with this sweet little girl... she just makes me want to almost burst with happiness every time I see her!  Young as she is, when I arrive she always greats me by my name with the biggest smile ever!  She could truly ask me to buy her the world in that moment and I would!!  Along comes Mr Blue Eyes and I'm again surprised at how much space your heart can hold!  This is the sweetest family and I love that I get to follow along as they raise their family. 

love this little guy.... and his big brother!

I adore this family!!  they are just so down to earth and easy to be around .... and the boys are over the top sweetness! 

these two are going to have so much fun as they grow up!!

Somebunny adorable arrived!

I can't even begin to say how sweet I think this mom and dad are... two of the nicest people you will ever meet!  So it's no surprise that their little guy is just a dream!  He arrived near Easter and we just had to use the bunny ears!  He's way too cute and loved getting to see how happy he has made his mom and dad!  much love to you all!

what a wonderful little guy!  He wasn't sure he wanted to participate, but as soon as he settled down, we were golden and he let us move him all over .... he was a doll.  It's sweet to see how his big sisters adore him... think this little guy is going to have a lot of girl attention growing up!

big families, big fun!

How many good looking people can you fit into one family??!  This session was such a blast... the kids were so easy to work with and they just played and laughed and we captured some amazing moments and images that I hope they will cherish for a long time.  Something so wonderful about getting family all together and the silliness and love that everyone shares.  It always makes these kind of sessions some of my favorite -- and this family is truly wonderful!  Not only do they look good on the outside shell, they are such nice people!  Hope you all enjoyed your time together!
this baby could produce a smile on cue like no other!!

they may not frame this..... but it just makes me giggle! ..... and it led us to this incredible  image below

only with cousins.......!!

I LOVE this photo!!  It is SO them!

double time...times two!

What a pleasure to get to see this family again and meet everyone.  I met J when she came to me for a maternity session.  It was a special connection with J, not only because she was pregnant with twins that she happened to be naming the same names as my oldest and youngest daughters (yes, both first and middle names are identical minus the spelling!! So strange!), but she began to tell me her story of how she would be delivering while her husband was flying in Afghanistan in service to our country, and would be missing the birth.  I had been thinking about adding the option to do birth photography.  I offered to capture the moments of her in the hospital and giving birth... and she invited me to capture it so her husband would feel a part of the birth process.  It truly was one of the most amazing experiences I've had -- and one of the nicest families I've ever met.  When her hubby came home, it was such a surreal experience to meet someone I felt such a personal connection with, while never having met him in person.  Here they are with their beauties at 2.  Aren't they gorgeous?  ...... And, yep - that isn't one set of twins, but two!!  These guys are going to have a blast at family Thanksgiving dinners and get togethers!!  Love these images, guys!  It was wonderful to see you!

aren't they gorgeous??

love the moments when everyone stops paying attention to the camera!
