All together now.....

Isn't she lovely?

Blustery Day.

I think the weather on this evening was 60* (chilly for FL) and it was sooooooo windy. But little "B" in his bright red jacket was surely a bright spot amongst the dreariness. He made all the people at this resort smile as they passed by.

Long Day.

I have been at a wedding most of the day. I'll share some from that soon. But after a long day on my feet it is so nice to sit in the recliner and go through this session. Adorable "N & N" were just a joy to work with, and told me all about themselves. For instance, did you know that this little girl has TWO care bears. TWO! She also happens to be turning THREE very soon, and I believe she had her big party today. So here's your little sneak peek "B" family.
Mom mentioned to me that this might be the last time these shoes get worn. I thought that was so sad, because they were soooooo cute. So I thought I'd give them a little attention.

Can't wait to meet this baby.

Had a recent maternity session with "N" and "R" who are the sister and brother in law of a friend. They were so sweet, and I can't wait to go back and do baby "N" in about 6 or 7 weeks!

This one makes me crack up. I keep going back to look at it and smile.

For "M"'s aunt, and all my other stalkers.

I am just giddy over all the comments I am getting lately, so even though I spent the better part of the night tossing my cookies, I am here to post from my death bed. (not really, but the morning sickness can wear off ANYTIME).

First, here's "M" and "O". They're baby "M's" older cousins and they had me cracking up the entire session.
and of course I had to add "M's" sister "S." She was not feeling well, but she let me get a few shots. Aren't these little outfits their mom bought for their birthday so cute? I about died when she pulled them out of the bag.

Just one...

Before I go to bed. For "J" who is a self proclaimed blog stalker (I love those).
More from this session coming tomorrow.
Things baby M likes: Her mom, her aunt, and Grapefruit!
Things M does not so much care for: Me, the camera, and having her picture taken. However, I am too quick for her!

I just can't get over these...

I am so in love with every image I open from this session. Now, I tell every family that I work with on the beach "just do your thing and try to ignore the fact that I am here." I get lots of skeptical looks when I say this, and the "T" family was no exception. However, they just did it and oh....
I mean...
It shows.
I got so many artsy, outside the box, fabulous images because these folks were such great sports. Little "Z" was not so into me, in true 1 year old fashion, but when she did about melting your heart. "J" was an awesome little model and I am probably going to hire her to come to sessions and show people how to give a natural, wonderful smile.
I have the best clients, and this family was top notch! Get ready for the overload.

Ah.....sunset silhouette

Another beach, another little "E".

This little gal was all smiles and giggles at our recent session, which is actually rare for many of the 12-16 month olds I come across. Normally they really make me, mom, dad and any passerby work for a smile, but not "E". Happy as happy could be.
Also, a special THANK YOU to my friend Lindsey who made me some tutu's! I am very artistic, but not especially crafty, so she was nice enough to do some for me. I have this red one, a purple and white and an eeennnnnsssyyy tiny one for newborns. If you'd like to use any of them at your session, just let me know!

How they grow

If you've been a stalker for a while (waving at a few of you), you might remember this tiny peanut. Well, I met her family for a beach session this past weekend and of course I had to sneak in a few of her. It was so windy and sunny, but miss "E" was quite a little trooper. Isn't she cute?

Yours, Mine and Ours.

"Have you ever seen Yours, Mine and Ours?" This dad yelled down from the top of the stairs when I walked in. "It's really real!"
And yes, it is. With 6 kids: some his, some hers, one theirs, this family is nonstop action. But it's also nonstop FUN. I could seriously thrive on that kind of stuff. My husband just passed out...
Anyway, here's a few shots of the kids. I put one of each in...the baby got 2 because he's a doll.

I didn't take this picture.

Well, I did since it's a picture of a picture, but I didn't take the original. Obviously. However I can promise that this is the first of MANY pictures you will be subjected to of this baby. Yep, it's our baby. Our newest addition will be here in May. I am almost out of the first trimester so I feel ok sharing my news now.
I will be going on maternity leave at the end of April, and I will only be doing newborn sessions and finishing up baby plans after April 15th 2008. I *hope* to be back by mid summer of 2008, but I'll be playing it by ear for a while. I want to be able to be with the baby as much as possible, but I know I'll also be itching to get back, so I will ease in for a bit. If you know you would like a session between the months of January and April, please start thinking about booking with me right after the holidays (or even before). Ok, anyway, here s/he is!
