My little brother is hiLARious

This is one of my FAVORITE pictures I’ve ever taken. Love. Love. Love.

Met these cuties last weekend, when what was supposed to be a rainy day cleared up for us and allowed us to play both inside and outside.

Inside we got to do fun things like play on the bed…

Play the piano…

Chat with bear friends…

And color some princess books.

Big grins inside:

And big grins outside:

And of course we had to play on the swings a bit outside.

Wonderful to meet you guys, thanks for having me come out!

Beautiful pictures. Well done!

Rolls, rolls, rolls, and even a DIMPLE!

Last Tuesday, just when I thought all I needed to get through the day were some squishy arm and leg rolls, this little ball of awesome showed up and killed me with his dimple. Come ON now with the cuteness.

Now I won’t bore you with my color commentary, I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.  Let me just say… delicious.

Wonderful to see you guys!

How has no one eaten this baby yet?

Kate - July 26, 2011 - 10:01 am

He is just the absolute cutest! Wonderful pictures!

Linds - July 28, 2011 - 11:06 pm

Absurdly cute! Nice work, all around… baby, photographs, the whole package. I’m a big-time fan. :)

He’s three and she’s one

So I know I always gush about these guys on the blog, but I think the fact these two kids are practically our niece and nephew means I get to spend a minute or two telling you how amazing they are.  It’s a double birthday month for them – little sister L turned one early in July, and tomorrow is big brother H’s 3rd birthday.  It was a blink of an eye (ok, fine, maybe a long blink… it was 4 years) ago that I shot (my one and only EVAH, please don’t ask me to shoot your wedding, I’m soooo not a wedding photographer) their parents’ wedding, and now there are these two beautiful, perfect babies in the world, thanks to this awesome couple.  OK, photos will do the rest of the talking.  I just love these guys. Happy birthday, babies.

Watching Jess in action never ceases to amaze me. She has techniques to turn a sad / shy / unhappy child into a that’s-how-I-want-my-child-to-look-in-photos child. Simply brilliant!

molly chanoff - July 25, 2011 - 1:39 pm

these are sooooo beautiful! i am dying! jess! you are a MASTER!

marni chanoff - July 27, 2011 - 10:16 pm

It is hard to believe that these photos came from a quick shoot on a lazy afternoon. They are so incredible. Jess, these are the best gifts we could ever imagine getting. We love every one of them and will appreciate them and YOU more and more as our beautiful July babies get older. I mean, how many more years will they agree to the double diaper birthday shoot? Thank you!

What wonderful pictures! And since I have not yet met the one-year old, and it has probably been at least a year and a half since our last meeting with Hayden (lovely BBQ in your backyard then!) I am so happy to have these to look at and marvel at how beautiful the two young Chanoffs are doing!

Ten shoots in!

I’m in my ninth year as a baby photographer (in May 2012 I start my 10th year!), and these guys are the first family to hit the ten shoots mark. Congrats, guys!  I have loved each and every shoot we’ve had over the years, and I’m always so honored to come back and see you.

These three boys make me so happy – they have such fun together.


One mama shot with her whole pile:

Mama with her baby:

And one of the five all together —

Daddy shots…

With his oldest, giggling:

With the middle guy, horrified by the spectators discussing a girl from his class…

And giving the littlest a swing:

You guys are wonderful as always!

Tossing the ball around with two of their beautiful cousins.  What a team!

Jean diapers and ONE!

This handsome guy is turning one this week, so we had to take pictures to commemorate the occasion. I got to see him when he was just super tiny for his newborn pictures, and again when he was six months old – and now look at him!

His mom got those hilarious jean diapers Huggies or someone is making these days, and they made for some great shots :)

Mama and her sweet boy – I love this one:

The water table is his favorite place – his expression can’t be beat:


And they got him a cupcake for the birthday, love these three in a row, telling the story of the experience a bit…

Awesome to see you guys again!
