Sneak Peek - A Family Gathering

With this whole family together in town, just after the holidays, we scheduled a shoot for family photos. A sweet little girl and a new little boy were the centers of attention. It was a lively morning indeed!

Towards the end of the shoot, we all headed outside for some final photos. Here are a few indoor shots, more to come from the outside.  Everyone was such a good sport, in spite of how cold it was.

Thank you for the opportunity to photograph your wonderful family.
Wishing you all the best in 2011!

Sneak Peek - A Welcome Addition

What a fabulous way to kick off the New Year!  This family brought a brand new little guy into the world and into their family right before the end of the year.  I was lucky enough to photograph everyone on January 2nd and what a fun shoot this was.  This beautiful little girl was a very willing subject and more than happy to do whatever I asked of her.  Normally rather shy, she completely bloomed in front of the camera.  And, while I thought the little guy wouldn't be awake for long, he was such a trooper and stayed alert for the entire shoot.

I feel so lucky to have met your new baby so early in his life. Thank you for allowing me photograph your entire family.  I look forward to watching your little ones grow - just hopefully not too fast!

Sneak Peek - A Family of Nine

This family photo shoot marks the end of my sessions for 2010. I loved having a session on the second to last day of the year.  Everyone was home in his household for just a few days around the holidays so we made sure to get a date where everyone could be included.

I started out photographing the kids.  They were an absolute dream.  Both kids were more than happy to let me click away while they stared at me with those gorgeous eyes of theirs.  I do believe I could have photographed them all day long.  The little guy said "yes" to whatever I asked of him in this sweet little voice. I'm not sure he said "no" even one time.  They both just stared into the lens with those beautiful dark eyes and I happily clicked away.

We got shots of every family within this family and 
I truly enjoyed getting to know each of them just a little bit.  
 I absolutely love that the dog is winking in this one!

Getting the large group shot lit inside properly was a challenge so outdoors we went.  Everyone was such a good sport.  We still had a bit of snow but it was chilly and drizzly.  The dad of the whole clan kept me laughing by observing my personal comments after each shot I took.  I guess it's a little more telling than I realized.  After a few "okay" and "good" comments from me post shot, I gave them an "awesome!" once I finally got what I was looking for.
It was wonderful to meet everyone.  
I wish you all the best in 2011!

Sneak Peek - Five women and a Dad

Oh, what a fun family photo shoot this was! A family of 4 girls plus Mom, Dad is certainly outnumbered. But, he kept us laughing the entire time.  The silliness reminded me so much of my dad when I was growing up and I loved every minute of it. We started out inside the house and everyone was wonderfully wiling to do whatever I asked of them. Then, we all decided to brave the cold and took some fun shots outside in the snow.  I wish everyone had a beautiful background of winter white snow for their photographs!

Thank you for the opportunity to photograph your beautiful family! 
Wishing you all the best in the New Year!
