Sneak Peek: "Miss E and Little T"

This was a whirl-wind of a family session. I shot with "Miss E and Little T" last year for holiday photos but this was the first time we have shot the whole family...including the family dog! It was about 40 degrees outside, threatening to rain and we only had 20 minutes to get shots with Dad before he had to go back to work, so we had to work quickly! I don't think I have ever gotten so many great shots of a whole family in such a short period of time. Enjoy your sneak peeks, guys! I look forward to seeing you again next year around this time!

Sneak Peek: "Little J"

This little guy was so much fun! We were worried that the winter-like weather would prevent us from shooting outside, but the rain managed to hold off for a few minutes so that we could snap a few quick shots before heading back inside. "J" was just so sweet...giving me hugs and huge toothless (okay there are a couple teeth so not completely toothless) grins the whole time! Keeping him in the same shot as Mom and Dad proved difficult as been the theme of my last few one year old family shoots but with a lot of creativity, we got a few great ones. Enjoy!

Sneak Peek: "The O Family"

I'm sure you will all remember "Little M"'s first birthday party from a couple of weeks ago. It was the one with the adorable monkey theme and super cute monkey cake. Well, "The O Family" decided that it was time to get some good family shots since we always focus all the attention on "Little M" at our sessions. As it always works out, "M" woke up from his nap in a very rare grumpy mood! He was happy to play with me and give me hugs but he wanted nothing to do with playing with Mom and Dad, and since this was a "family" shoot...he was certainly giving me a run for my money. We had to get a little creative but we got some great shots that I think everyone will love! Don't worry "C"...they turned out much better than we all expected given the circumstances! :-) Enjoy your sneak peek!

Sneak Peek: "Baby R"

Introducing 5 day old "Baby R"...the new baby sister of "Mister A" and "Little K" from a couple weeks ago. "Baby R" was only 5 days old for our shoot and I couldn't get enough of her! She was just so sweet and cuddly! She slept a little a the beginning of our shoot and then decided to stay awake for the remainder of our time together. She was a happy little thing, though. I think I only heard her cry once! It was great meeting the new little addition to your wonderful family! I can't wait to watch her grow up along with the boys! Enjoy your sneak peek!

Sneak Peek" "Little W"

I met up with "Little W" and his parents for a fun little fall shoot last week. This was such a fun family! I think I was laughing the whole time! "Little W" wasn't so convinced that he wanted to do pictures with Mom and Dad (as is the case with most one year olds) but with a little bit of convincing, we got him to participate in a few good shots. I hope you enjoyed you fun day out for family pictures, guys! :-)

Sneak Peek: "Mister J"

This session was so much fun! The location was beautiful with all the leaves starting to change. It would have been impossible not to get great shots there. "J" was so much fun to work with. He is so much like my own son so it was easy for me to relate to him. We had some in depth conversations about Batman and all his villains! Enjoy your sneak peeks, "J"!

Sneak Peek: "Mommy-To-Be S"

It's time for another gorgeous maternity session. I swear, I have some of the most beautiful mommies-to-be as clients! "Mommy-To-Be S" has done some modeling in the past, so she made my job a breeze! Two year old "Big-Sister-To-Be A" was such a cutie! For some reason, "A" decided that my name was Miko. We all started referring to myself as Miko for the whole session! It was too cute! "A" wasn't too excited to be in the photos but we managed to get a couple with her in them before she ran away to play. Good luck with the delivery, "S"! I hope to see you and your family again soon!
