If I loved my job any more than I do, I might just explode. I pinch myself all the time. Working with this family and working on these photos was no exception. Just so much beauty and love.
Yes, I'm behind on blogging. I know. But I am still taking photos, just in case you were wondering. I met up with these cuties a couple of weeks ago. These grown sisters wanted to give their daddy a photo session. Such a great gift! The expressions on this baby just crack me up.
These might just be my most favorite family photos that I've ever taken. Seriously. The colors, the light, the beautiful faces... And yes, I know there are more of the little guy than his brother and sister. I usually try to keep things fair around here, but I know that since he's child number three, there might not be as many photos of him. Plus, I just couldn't help myself.
This sweet momma is the director of the preschool that my kids attended. She has poured so much of her time into my three youngest kids, I just can't even tell you. It takes a village and she's been part of mine. What an honor to know them and capture these photos for them!
This wonderful family lives right across the street from us! They help us populate our street with lots of kids. There are times when there are 13 or more kids playing outside on our street at the same time. It's been an honor and privilege to live near these guys and call them friends. Here's to many more years of sitting in lawn chairs in your driveway, yelling "CAR!!" every few minutes. :-)
These little ones grew up a bit over the last few years...
And they gained a precious little brother. Amiee and Jason, you guys make beautiful babies!
This little one wins "The Most Cooperative and Outstanding Two Year Old in the History of Ever" Award!! She was seriously so amazing!!! It's not secret that two and three year olds aren't always the *easiest* little people to work with. So I'm always kind of mentally prepared for whatever mayhem may arise, but Abigail was just so wonderful!! And it's been an honor to get to know her parents. They're just cool folks!
This session was before Christmas. Yes, I know... Anyway, the weather was not great and I have been wanting to take pictures here at out local Arts and Sciences Museum. This ended being a great place for the boys to play and explore. I love what we were able to capture!
And he's this same little guy a year ago. It's hard to believe how much they change in a year. Happy birthday, sweet boy!
This is seriously one of the cutest families I know. I loved working with these guys. I love the colors, the smiles, the personality. I love everything about these photos. And now that we're several weeks out, I can say that these photos were even worth getting chiggers for. That's right...me, my son, at least three of the folks in this family all got chiggers from rolling around in that grass! Itchy itchy!
My goal is to spend the next several hours catching up on this darn blog. My guess is that I will go to bed still painfully behind, but at least I can chip away at it. And this is one of my favorite sessions!! This beautiful lady is a photographer friend of mine and her cutey pie boys. You can check out her stuff at Amanda Reich Photography. She's had "the pleasure" of photographing our crazy family and I assure you, hers is much easier to work with. BTW...I've already done another session with these guys since I took these back in APRIL!!
I had to remove this slideshow becuause it was wiggin' out the homepage of my blog. :-( So so sad.So ideally I would be posting this on our family blog, but I can't do a good slideshow there. So I'm just going to do it here. Here's my justification: A. I'm the boss. I can do what I want. B. It's photography. (with limited editing and limited clothing) C. I have the cutest kid on the planet.
