Happy Halloween!

It is that fun time of year again!  And who doesn't love Halloween :)  And I love it even more when both of my girls are agreeable and excited to be photographed without even a bribe...the painted faces and getting dressed in their costumes were bribe enough this time :)  I just had to share one of my 2008 Halloween favorites!  My little kitties were totally into it with the growls and claws.  Sara my black cat is 6 years old and Jenna my tiger is 4 1/2 years old! And they can hardly wait for tomorrow night! Have a safe and Happy Halloween :)

Rockin' it

The boys did rock it!  Look at those smiles :)  This is the third year I have photographed these adorable brothers and I was so excited to see them again!  They have both grown up so much! Here are a few of my favorite images from their session!

Big brother Aiden was ready to go the minute he walked into the studio.  He was all smiles and so easy going - he was up for anything!  For little brother Danton it took a little longer to warm up, but wow was it worth the wait!  Once he was ready, there was no shortage of smiles from him either!  And with some help from mom & dad the boys just kept laughing:) 

It makes my day when a session comes together and the amazing spirit of the children I am photographing is captured in the images.  This is what is it all about for me!  

Thanks M family for sharing your boys with me again this year!

Little Max

Aww..what a handsome little man!  And look at all that hair :) This was like my ultimate session...aside from having a beautiful little model, I was able to visit with a friend too!  And little Max was perfect! So alert, barely fussed and within 30 minutes we captured all of our beautiful images!  

Jill, thanks so much for letting me "play" with Max!  It was great to see you and catch up a little bit!  Your little boy is beautiful!  I can't wait for you to see the rest of the images we captured.  Enjoy a few of my favorites!

Sunshine & mosquito's...

Sunshine, beautiful fall colors...and mosquito's?  Yes, the mosquito's were out in force on Sunday and unfortunately Alex and Charlie have some of the battle wounds to show for it. 

But, Alex and Charlie just kept on smiling (even while under attack).  And mom even had a special Mickey Mouse song to that was perfect for coaxing out those smiles!  By the end of the session both of the boys had their own "shots" they want to try!  I think we all had a great time!

Thanks so much to the B family, especially Alex and Charlie,  you were troopers!  We captured some wonderful images and I hope you had a much fun as I did!

Wonderful weekend...

What a great way to start off a session!  An image of beautiful little baby Hendrick sleeping...what is not to love about this little guy!   This was literally the first image we captured of 3 week old baby Hendrick and it is one of my favorites!  

This was my first session with the M family and they were such a pleasure to work  with!  So relaxed and go with the flow...I think I had more fun than they did!   And big sister Addison was so wonderful with her new little brother...sitting with him and giving him kisses.  She even showed me her dance moves as she grooved along with her Gymboree video! Thank you M family for letting me be a part of such a special time in your lives!  I hope you enjoy the sneak peek!

Pretty in Pink!

It is hard for me to believe that Abby is already 3 years old! I am sure her Mom & Dad feel the same way.  I was so excited when the day of her session arrived because the L family is always such a pleasure to work with.  I have had the privilege of photographing Abby since she was one year old & it has been so much fun for me to watch her grow!  Abby was all smiles and giggles for her session but she did slow down to read few books (quickly) and do a puzzle.  That was really amazing to watch her sit and figure it all out on her own!   Mom & Dad enjoy your sneak peek!

Seniors 2009 - Rachel & Matthew

I had such a fun afternoon!  It was great to see the S family again, listen to a little ABBA and capture some beautiful images. 

Rachel and Matthew are currently in their Senior year at Sexton H.S.  I met Rachel and Matthew last fall when I photographed their family portrait.  In addition to being brother and sister they are twins as well!  I am so honored that I had the opportunity to photograph their senior portraits!  And it was also great to visit with the family too, even Grandma was here from the U.P.  

We captured so many beautiful images!  And Rachel's dog Chip was so adorable and such a great model!  Here are just a few of my personal favorites. Enjoy your sneak peek!
