What a gorgeous, wide open smile

Don’t you just love how this little sweetheart opens her mouth so wide to smile for us?  With her cute little tongue peeking out?

Having some fun with Dad:

And then, wait, not so sure about what Dad just suggested…

Love this, with mama looking on…

We got to pop outside at the end of the shoot — a girlie and her mama again:


Great to meet you guys!

Playing in the driveway

For the 2nd time shooting these awesome kiddos, we played in their driveway – and it was, again, super fun.  Their mom jokingly apologized for her kids running me over with the car, but how fantastic is this cool, functional Mustang? A few skidmarks on my jeans are totally worth the giggley faces.

Now you might remember this driveway from our shoot a couple of years ago, when the most opportune thing happened – the mailman arrived with the mail and we got the most perfect shot of the two kids and their pup going out to say hi to the mailman.  It really is one of my all-time favorite moments captured.  You can see that old pic at the bottom of this post from two years ago.

But this year’s pictures are pretty great too – now that these guys are six and four, they have the best time together.

Except when sometimes they don’t. ;)

Lovely lady.

Sweet, freckled kanga.



Wonderful to see you guys again!

Jason Savage - May 31, 2011 - 9:35 am

wonderful shots of a fantastic family.

Carole Carter - May 31, 2011 - 11:34 am

These are lovely! I also loved going back to see the last ones of the family. You capture the true spirit of both children and adults. Well done!

Katie Ouellette - May 31, 2011 - 12:09 pm

As always, the pictures are outstanding. Can’t wait to see the whole lot!

Caitlin Flanagan - May 31, 2011 - 4:14 pm

PAM DIXON - May 31, 2011 - 5:49 pm

I loved these!

Mariko Wilcox - May 31, 2011 - 8:19 pm

Makes me want to meet your adorable munchkins some day even more. I love the natural look of happiness captured in the photos.

Handsome, handsome, and still adorable

Been a few years since I’ve seen these guys, and while their little sister M went from two to five in those years and has stayed adorable and super fun – big brothers A and C have spent those years growing into handsome, cool young men.  They were even willing to hang out with their parents in the backyard and tickle their little sister. 

First, Miss M:


And A:

And just a couple mama/daddy littlest girl pictures…


You guys were fantastic, thanks for having me out!

Elias habre - March 11, 2013 - 3:47 pm

I love this video and i like it

Two years later, another 3 month old photoshoot

Two years ago I met big sister M at her 3 month old photoshoot, and now these guys have moved and have welcomed a new little guy into their lives – G’s just 3 months in these pictures too.  I loved this big window in the bedroom – cool family picture opportunities:

Doncha love the sweet ‘do?

Someone was interested in being the star of the show – she was awesome…

See what I mean?

And before I show you how super incredibly handsome G is, I have to show you these splayed fingers and perfect tootsies:

And now check this dude out.

Noting his cute belly button:

We had to zip outside for some bubble blowing:

With the whole clan:

And sometimes we just have to grab a mommy/daddy picture – our lives get going so fast when we’re parents, I love taking a minute at the end of a shoot to remember that all this started with a great couple of people coming together.  Don’t be mad at me for loving this one when you’re getting squeezed, Melissa – it’s just too perfect!

Fun to see you guys again, thanks!

Anna - May 16, 2011 - 1:02 pm

Kelly - May 16, 2011 - 1:17 pm

Jamie - June 21, 2011 - 11:37 pm

Beautiful Family and stunning photos’!

That boy can hook a trout!

With over a thousand photoshoots under my belt, it’s hard to introduce a new kids activity to me.  Not to say that I’m bored of any of it – I’ll play Legos and dressup and take fun pictures of it happily for the next many decades, don’t get me wrong.  But this one was a totally new one for me.  Raise your hand if you knew you could buy all different kinds of real-looking stuffed fish with little loops of string in their mouths – and that kids can hook them with their real fishing rods and practice reeling them in in the backyard.  So super cool.  This tiny fisherman fishes with his dad as often as he can (almost every night after work – LOVE it) and when he can’t get to a real watering hole, is content to cast and reel in his funky stuffed fish in the backyard.  Just awesome.

His sister is a total swing addict.  Been there – I hear you, M.  Swinging rocks.  Or as my Sadie calls it, “finging”. Not to mention the awesome tongue.

Now many years ago this fisherman daddy and I worked at a small company together – pre-marriages, pre-kids… and I just love getting to see people like this over the years as their kids grow up.  Just such a wonderful family:

Running around outside:

Giving hugs:

Just being handsome:

And donning her custom-crocheted outfit from her grandmother…

Loved every minute of it, guys!  So nice to see you.

Two handsome boys take their Communion

So I have to start by showing you these two eight year old guys together with their beautiful mama, since Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Aren’t they handsome?  Love the white linen shirts and seersucker pants for their Communion pictures – just perfect.

First I’ll introduce handsome Mr. A:

A, leaning up against a tree:

And A with his papa:

We tried to really separate the shoot so these guys would each have their own galleries for their Communion albums, so next I’ll give you a few of Mr. R, looking dapper:

R again, with a nice grin:

And last of R, with his mama:

With their big brother P:

And now all four.  It was great to see you guys as always!

Double perfection

I met this perfect pair of three month old boy/girl twins last weekend – I love this as sister A gives a little giggle:

And here you can see their beautiful faces a bit better:

When one’s feeling good, the other… sometimes… isn’t…


And first to introduce the young Mister S:

And the lovely Miss A:

Had to share my favorite bum view…

It was great to meet you guys!

Klara - May 8, 2011 - 4:28 am

Divni su!!!They are beautiful!!!

Fantastic expressions

And  for me, of all the fantastic expressions, this one takes the cake – eyebrow raise/splayed fingers and extra arm/leg rolls and all :)

But actually, the whole shoot was full of awesome expressions:

See what I mean?

But J seemed nonplussed when presented with Dad’s tongue…

But he was easily won over.

I just love this pensive profile:

WIth his lovely mama:

And then some knuckle dimples…

His mom’s necklace was his favorite:

It was wonderful to meet you guys, thanks so much for having me out!
