The C Family

I seriously love my job. I get to meet the nicest people, spend a very pleasant afternoon doing my favorite thing, and then have the joy of sharing images that make mothers very, very happy (which makes me happy!). Last Friday's family was no exception!

Thank you C family for a wonderful evening!

Time to catch up again!

I've been a busy girl, doing lots of editing for my awesome clients! I love this time of year, and there's still more to come (including trying to get a picture of my own kids--wish me luck!).

I'm behind on the blog because one week ago today, my sweet Boxer died unexpectedly in her sleep. She would have been 6 years old in January--we shared a birthday. I still can't believe she's gone and am missing her terribly.

Love you Lia.
Thankfully, I've had some good distractions while my heart heals.

The S fam--our very good friends. Really that's "my" baby, I'm just letting her hold him for the picture. ; ) Okay not really. But I'd keep him!
Brothers. Lots and lots of brothers.
3 month old sweetness.
3 month old sweetness wearing his daddy's hat that daddy's grandmother made. awww.
Photoshop and I are getting along REALLY well these days. Behold, the Before:
and After. (I'm pretty pleased with myself--this is tough to do!)
Another friend of mine needed some models for her Etsy shop (turkeys are done for the season, but her Christmas items are posted, and she'll soon have more cuties modeling them on her page!)
Handsome baby nephew turned ELEVEN months old! No way!
And I had a refreshing (and hilarious) session with two grown-ups. No children. As much as I love love love photographing children, it is such a treat to have a session without any, LOL.

So. There's the last two weeks in a nutshell--three more sessions coming in the next week, but one is my kiddos and will be a surprise at Christmas. : ) I've also rented a new camera body for next week! That'll be fun to play with. How awesome to get to check out equipment before you decide what to buy. I love that.

It's not too late for family pictures for the holidays, but get in touch with me soon!
Have a great weekend!

She was not happy.

The light was perfect. The mood struck. I quickly selected the most likely child to cooperate.

She was not happy.
But I worked my mommy magic.
And she came around.
She tried to resist, but mommy magic is powerful.
Resistance is futile. ; )

The J Fam

My husband and Mr. J grew up together, so we have a loooonnng history with this family! I've known these girls since they were born. They were my guinea pigs when I was figuring out this whole photography thing. We've celebrated countless birthdays together, and watched our babies playing and growing with each other, so spending yesterday evening with them was a complete pleasure!
