Sneak Peek of the "W" family!

Everything was going perfectly for the "W" family until little "I" fell asleep on the way to our session...she was not quite ready to wake up and smile for us. After a walk with Dad, while we took baby brother "E"'s pictures, she cam back and we had a great time! I love the family shot, and the candid one of the kids...I cannot believe the "E" is now running around with "I"...seems like yesterday he was a tiny bundle. I love watching your family grow and the kids being so close. "I" promised not to get upset next time and have a red nose- was so sweet....enjoy the sneak peek and gallery!

Sneak peek of the "W" family!

Tis the season to edit! I have been non stop editing to make sure all my later fall clients have their images:) Thank you for being so patient as I work through each one...I love what we captured, and the fall look that day. Your son is adorable and was soo great the whole time! Cant wait to meet!

Sneak peek of the "M" family!

One of my later sessions of the year!We got lucky and had really nice weather! Mom did great with dressing the kids warm and sooo coordinated. It was little "T"s birthday, so we sang happy birthday on the bridge. Candids were the favorite, so our session was very relaxed and everyone had a great time. These are a few of my favs.

Sneak peek of the "C" kids!

This is one quick post! Had to share...will add more tonight! Love these kiddos.
Im back:) The "C" kids have been taking pictures with me for more than 3 years now, and are always one of my favorite sessions! I love catching up with Mom and seeing how the kids are getting sooo big. We went to one of my favorite places, and had really great luck with the weather. Mr. "G" had us working from the start but then warmed up when we did some "fun" shots...I think the photo bombing was his favorite! I love the candid nature of these and hope you do too!
