High energy wouldn’t even begin to characterize most photo shoots with kids under the age of, oh, who knows?  And these guys weren’t any exception.  Luckily mom and dad were cool to just let me hang out snapping away, catching some of the crazy and love and wonder.

Though big sis was happy to ham for the camera….

The day was really meant to be about this butter bean…..LMW_7262 - Version 2

Very occasionally a couple will ask me to get a pic of just them during a family photo shoot – and although it doesn’t come as naturally to me as photographing kiddos, I always love being able to get a few images of just mom & dad – both for them and for their children as they grow.

And boy does getting two kiddos this age to take a family pic get to be a whole lot of crazy (and usually funny) work!

Thanks you guys for a lovely time!

My friend had a baby boy at home a few weeks ago, and it took me nearly three weeks to come say hi and take some pics for them – but we had a lovely afternoon visit amidst sporadic photo-taking.  I love talking to fellow birthie-folk, so thank you my dear!

Big sister was sleepy, but very sweet when she could sit her bottom down still enough – I love this one, one hand stroking her brother’s head, while still managing to suck her thumb – all the while listening to her mama read a story.  That’s what I call multitasking.

Big sister had a beautiful bright room, and she insisted I get under the canopy for a bit and color pics.  I think I want one for over my bed now!

And then this chair.  I love it.  They want to have it re-upholstered – I told them they need to find the exact same color.  I loved it!

Congratulations my friends!

I’ve known this lovely family for some time now as they took our birth class at HB and asked me to be their doula – so I was there when this pumpkin was born – and what a beautiful birth!

I was so happy when they asked me to come do photos with them, and what a fun and sweet Sunday morning at Picnic Point it was…..

Thanks to all of you – I so enjoyed our morning meandering!  Glad we finished up before all the other Sunday morning meanderers!

This was the largest family grouping I’ve done, and boy did I learn alot!  They were happy folk though, and that makes all the difference….

For the most part, I love color, but with so many different groupings of folks, I loved the way they came together with the black and whites.

This family is hands-down one of the most beautiful families I have ever met.  We squeezed in a photoshoot on Christmas Eve in the span of an hour so that everyone could be there – it was crazy-crazy-crazy, but there was much laughter lots of kissing and loving each other up.  Quite sweet.

These kiddos were sweet, and so sweet together – I hope that if I ever have a son, he is as sweet with his younger sibling(s) is this buddy was.

Good friends with young kids + formal shoot = don’t work (for me).

I laughed my BUTT off trying to get a formal family shot for the Christmas cards with these guys – I’m creating a “outtakes” version for them that I’ll post at some point.

But at least there were a few other worthy shots….

Next year I don’t think we can tell the kids we’re doing a shot for the Christmas cards – it’ll have to be a super secret snuggle on the couch affair methinks.
