Four make me smile

My mom is one of four, and my three aunts are three of my favorite people in the world. I can’t help but be reminded of my grandparents’ strict but loving house whenever I get a crew of four for photos.  So I guess it’s safe to say I have a particular affinity for families with four kids. I truly admire them – I’m so impressed, and these guys were no exception.

I am sooo in love with the one of baby B stepping out of the line of four and doing his 18 month old thing. That and as I was leaving, as he sat on the front steps all by himself to wave me goodbye :)

Dimples and a fantastic smile

This little 3 month old cutie blew me away on Sunday – she was just full of grins and her dimples were perfection. Even when she rubbed her eyes with the universal sign for, “Um, I’m tired, guys” – she still held it together and even gave out a few more smiles.

Wonderful to meet you guys!

She clearly is ALL about that camera!! Absolutely adorable.

She is SOOO cute!!! I can’t wait to see her again!!

8 years in… still perfecto

I just looked it up and realized this is my 8th year shooting L&W – I started when L was three and W was one.  Now look at them! L is climbing trees and channeling Katniss (she’s read the whole series three times) and W is sporting the adult teeth (but still able to be scooped up by Dad, luckily).  The one on the swing with both of them peeking through their swinging feet is so cool.

Just adored seeing you guys as always. :)

What’s the loudest noise you’ve ever heard?

I know what mine is.  I gave these guys a challenge: see if you can wake the neighbors (they’re one of my neighbors, so I knew I’d hear about it later), and boy did they.  Truly some of the loudest hollering I’ve ever heard.  Good on you, guys.

Twin (nearly) seven year old boys and their two and a half year old brother – they were ready to have fun. I love Mom’s face in the tickle picture (we turned the tables and the boys tickled their parents).  That and all the pretty pond/duck pictures… can’t go wrong with all that nice reflection.

It was so fun running around with you guys!

please start mass producing such cuties

Three having fun in the sun

Bummer when the grass is wet, eh? This happens so often to me, but it still makes me laugh. So when it’s been a rainy morning, but it clears up (or even early some mornings when the dew gets the grass all wet) and we go outside – more often than not, one of the kiddos does not want to touch the grass with his or her ACTUAL feet.  These guys were no different.  The girls did all right with the grass, but sweet Z requested carrying service over all wet grass, and as long as we didn’t have to touch the grass, all was good.  Enter stone wall, thank you very much.  The one of the three kids sitting together in the wagon but looking off in the same direction with a “meh” expression totally cracks me up.  I love how similar their facial expressions are!  No question as to family resemblance here.

So much love and laughing with these guys.  Thanks for having me over – this was really fun!

Curls and giggles

I feel like an old lady when I keep saying things about these babies getting bigger and bigger every year – but wow. The curls on this big sister and the walking around little brother… where does the time go? Gorgeous. I love the flying in the air one, the pushing on the swing one (Dad’s expression is the best part) and the cuddling family one outside.  Really fun to see you guys!

Happy birthday, baby girl!

This fantastic little girl and her mama did a baby’s first year package with me this year, and opted for package #2 – with 5 photoshoots in the first year.  This means I really felt like I got to watch her grow — it was so fun for me.

She’s really just an extraordinary little girl.  I love the 1 year old she’s become.  She’s quirky and funny, as she pulls herself up on the furniture and smashes granola bars in her mouth.  She adores her big brother, black lab Harry, and the two of them have a pretty amazing relationship.  He’s super gentle with her, and she just loves to play with him – even peek-a-boo ;)  And I love the picture we got where she stands up for her mama.  Such an exciting time.

Thanks for sharing this year with me!

Happy Birthday Sweet Ellie! Such great shots and I too adore the one of her standing up! Love the ruffles!

Another of the boys turns two

So it’s a family tradition for these guys – we did this back when big 5 year old brother C was two, and now it’s two year old middle brother O’s turn – we spent most of our time getting fun pictures of him this time.

I think my favorite one came at the very end, as he was hiding from me behind a pillar in front of the house.

Peek-a-boo :)

See you in a year and a half for Mr. D’s moment in the sun!

Brother adventures

Oh I love going back a year later! Don’t get me wrong, it’s wonderful and amazing to chronicle babies throughout their first year (now I feel like I need to link to the Baby’s First Year package), but there’s this incredible fun surprise for me when I take one set of photos when a baby is first born, and then I get to arrive at the house and walk in the door a year later and find this little tiny person, doing so many amazing things.  They just change so much in that first year, it gets me every time.  These two guys are no different… and big brother C I’ve seen since he was a little tiny munchkin too – and he’s now a big boy of three.  This shirtless reading picture of the two of them kills me. Kills me. Adore.

So this August 30th photoshoot marks the official last shoot of the summer for me. Now on to the craziest month of the year… FALL! It’s the best. My schedule is here if you’re interested.
