Double Goodness

Oh these girls!  I have loved getting to photograph them since they were "that" little!!  Actually I photographed them before they came out of the womb, because we did a maternity session with Mom. I have loved getting to know them and look forward to getting to catch up every year....  how I love the timeless quality of these images!

Until next year, Dear M and family -- thank you for asking me to be a part of capturing this amazing session!

And she's off!

I've never met a baby that smiled more, giggled until you wanted to giggle with her, or just radiated happiness and beauty the way this little peanut does!  She's just GORGEOUS!!! and I'm sure her parents got tired of me saying it, but she is so beautiful and delightful that I couldn't help but gush every time we've been together.  Oh dear - you  totally melt my heart!!  

The funny thing about this, is it looks like pure joy as she runs to daddy and he is all hers -- until she seriously sidesteps and keeps running past him!!  I don't know how this wasn't blurry from me laughing so hard! xo

Joy - PURE joy!!

Going to the Candy Shop

It's only appropriate that we went to the candy shop for this sweet girl and her family - I'm so excited to get to have  met this family and work with them to capture this special time in their lives!  They are like that family you just like to hang out with because they are so relaxed and easy to talk with.

Up up and Away! No One is Cuter than this today!

OH MY!  I want to buy a billboard and paste this for the world to see!!  I am in LOVE with this cutie and how this turned out!!  It was a total collaboration with her Mom - and bravo, A, for bringing the balloons and finding this basket! M's a doll and have loved every time we get together!  

are these the cutest shoes ever??  love the mini espadrilles! 

Sometimes not even cake makes it better!

Happy First Birthday to this little one!  She was such a trooper -- ear infection and hot as heck was making it for a not so fun time - but she still managed to give us some sweet smiles before I think she was back to the doctor to recheck the ear. You almost wouldn't have known by her cuteness that she wasn't feeling her best.  What beautiful girls these three are!

The Whole Package... Car Stopping, Jaw Dropping Beauty!

GORGEOUS!  there are no other words -- except there are!!  She is so much more than just this undoubtedly gorgeous outside - she is smart and athletic and warm and polite.... really, the list can go on and on!  During this part of the shoot we actually had a group of young men on vespas pass by and nearly crash -- first time I've endangered the public during a shoot!

One of my absolute favorites!

Stolen Heart

She stole my heart from the moment I met her, this little one! That almost red hair, loveliest smile.   There is a sweetness about her and the way she holds my hand as we cross the street during a shoot that makes me love her like she's one of my nieces.  Who knew she would have a brother with the cutest twinkling blue eyes - you know this is the kid that everyone is going to follow around.  So good to see this sweet family!
Did I mention their mom is gorgeous??

Happy First Birthday, M!

So much cuteness I almost can't take it!!  He has to be one of the most mellow, happy little guys ever! (well, unless you make him get his fingers sticky with cake!!:)  What a beautiful family that I've loved getting to know.  Happiest first birthday, M!

Always love getting to add grandparents in!  Love these happy faces
