Sneak Peak: Brother and Sister "B" and "K"

I had my hands full on this shoot last night. These two kids had more energy than I could imagine! I had such a hard time keeping up with them while they were running all over the park. I had to bribe them with suckers towards the end but I was able to get some great shots just before the rain started falling! What luck! Check out these two...they were both such hams--striking poses like real little models!

Sneak Peak: "Baby D"

I had a session with 1 year old "Baby D" this morning. He was such an adorable little boy who totally wore me out! He was all over the place...jumping, dancing, and grabbing the camera. It was such a fun shoot! Check out his big brown eyes and curly hair!

Happy Anniversary to me!

So, Alex and I have officially been married for 7 years! Yay to us! For our anniversary we got a babysitter and were going to have a nice dinner without children interupting us every two seconds. Well, since we were going to get dressed up a little I thought it would be fun to go do a photo shoot since we never have good photos taken of us.

In the process of doing the shoot, I learned that I am NOT a model!! The photos ended up turning out great but I am definitely much more comfortable behind the camera than in front of it.

Anyway...here are some of my selected photos to share with you. Enjoy!

Sneak Peak: 6 month old times 3

Here are a few sneak peak photos from a recent session of 3 six month olds! There were actually supposed to be 4 of them, but the timing of naps and eating with 4 babies just didn't work out. They all did a great job with the session! So, here are a few of "Baby K", "Baby K", and "Baby L".

I just have to brag...

I just have to share this photo of my husband and son looking so adorable! We went to Asian Fest in downtown Columbus a couple of weeks ago and I just happened to snap this photo of them playing around.



And because I never have any good photos of myself since I am always behind the camera, I will share this photo from Yellow Springs of me and the baby.



Enjoy!

Sneak Peak: "Baby L"

Here are a few sneak peaks from today's 6 month session with "Baby L". He is such an adorable little baby! You can't tell from the photos, but he really is normally a pretty happy baby. I have done his newborn and three month photos as well, so we are on a roll. I think he was going for a "serious, moody, model-look" this session, though!












Of course, the older sibs had to get in on the action as well. Aren't they the cutest little family ever?!?!

Here it is!

If you are reading this, you obviously have made it to my new blog! I decided to finally enter 2007 and get with the blogging. I transfered the very few posts I had on my other site to here so they will all be in one place. Be sure to add my blog to your bookmarks and check back often! I will post sneak peaks from recent sessions, special deals, random info, etc. as often as I can. Feel free to add comments as well! I LOVE feedback...especially if it's good feedback! ;-)

Enjoy!

A different kind of "baby"

We went back home this past weekend for the Gwen Stefani concert. Chasen, Alex, and I had a great time! It was Chasen's first concert; he thought it was pretty cool to see Gwen singing all the songs he sings along to in the car!

Anyway...while I was home I did a photo shoot of a different kind of subject...a car! I have never shot a car before but it was kind of fun! I didn't have to chase it all over the place, con it into smiling, or worry about it blinking during my shot! It just sat there and did what I wanted. What a dream subject! We did get stopped by the police at one time though but no tickets or jail time was issued, so all is well!

So...here are a few selected shots from the session. Enjoy!





Sneak Peak from "Baby H" and his brother "G"'s session

7 month old "Baby H" was a dream to photograph. He was so happy to be playing with his Daddy and smiling for the camera. Usually I end up with at least one or two crying baby shots, but not this time! He was such a little angel! I am so in love with this first image, that I put it on the home page of my website.







5 year old "G" did amazingly well also. I pretty much just followed "G" and his Dad around the park while they played and explored. "G" had so much fun playing in the stream with his shoes off (much to his mom's surprise!). I'm seeing a great Father's Day gift in several of these shots! ;-)




6 month old "Baby K"

"Baby K" was so happy during this whole photo shoot. He had just learned to sit up so he was so proud of himself to be sitting and playing. He just couldn't stop laughing and giggling at Daddy making faces behind me. The whole shoot took maybe 45 minutes and I got so many good shots out of it!

6 month olds "Baby K" & "Baby K"

Check out the eyes on these little guys! Six month olds "Baby K" and "Baby K" (they actually share the same name and are only 5 days apart) were just hanging out enjoying each other's company so I couldn't resist snapping a few photos for the record.





Here are a couple of "Baby K" and his Mommy:
