An apology

I had to put a quick note up here to apologize to twenty-three of my November families – I gave up on blogging this month in the effort to get your pictures edited and to you ASAP… but I love being able to choose my favorites and put them up here.  So I wanted to say sorry, guys, and I’ll get back to blogging my 2011 sessions, I promise.

Thanks for your understanding!

A visit from the left coast

I’ve been a terrible blogger this month, I’m so sorry.  I’m rushing to get everyone’s photos edited and out to them as fast as I can, and that often means sacrificing the blog posts, and I’m sorry about that.

So Evan and I always say if we were to move anywhere in the world it’d be San Francisco.  I love it out there.  But it’s FAR!  It’d be hard to leave all our friends and family, not to mention all my wonderful clients. But I’ll admit a part of me was jealous when these guys moved out there last winter – we’d just done their 2nd son’s newborn pictures, and so I was also sad to see them go.  Imagine my surprise when I got an email from this mama saying they’d be in town and could I take pictures of their now 1 and 3 year olds.

For people who have fun like this? I couldn’t say no.

These are the two handsome dudes, inside sitting still for just a minute:

And the fun part of this shoot was that because they were only in town for a few days, we got to double up the photoshoot with a big monster playdate they were having with tons of their Boston friends.  An old bud of big brother S’s:

They got some run-around outside time:

Even little C got to show off his run-around skills:

And some tickles from his mama:

We got some new babies:

And some old friends — beep beeeeeep…

And even some grins from a little guy who didn’t feel so well…

It was wonderful to catch some time with you guys while you were in town.

Three scooter-riding airplane fliers

I don’t usually start a blog post with a family shot, but this one says so much about this super fun family, I love it.

Best expression ever – and love littlest brother A in the background, also pointing his airplane to the sky…


Hop on the scooters, head to the hill!

What a crew :)

You guys were a treat as always – thanks for having me back!

Another gorgeous two under two

A kiss? From a big brother who isn’t even two years old yet?

Rare.  And when it happens, and you also get curly eyelashes and an adorable three month old sticky-uppy do and sweet little splayed fingers… awesome.

Love this, nothing beats playing in my sister’s crib while she snoozes…

Great to see you guys as always!

Big happy sis, leetle sweet brudda

Favorite, favorite, favorite!  I love this one so much.

But this one’s pretty great too.

Wait, wait, I actually love this one a lot too.

The curls on big sister aren’t to be believed.

And the grins on little brother are pretty fantastic too.

These two are really close in age – less than 2 years apart.  So although when we did these photos big girl K was (just barely) 2, I’m sneaking them into my two under two category for this blog post, because I know what a challenge it is for parents who have children that close in age, and it’s fun to see photos of other families who’ve done the same.

Great to see you guys again!

Six is a charm

I have to start at the end with these guys, because this is one of my favorite pictures of all time.  Dad’s expression, looking over at Mom, who’s just coming into the frame. All four of them, piled up on him… it really couldn’t be more perfect.

Unless, of course, we piled all six of them onto the hammock and the strings of the hammock started breaking one by one, scaring the little guys and making the bigger ones dissolve into laughter until the whole crew ended up with butts on the wet ground.  Good times make for really good pictures :)

But I digress…

Youngest to oldest… (actually, I’m not sure if I got the twins in the right age order or not…)

It was wonderful to see you guys again!
