I met Miss *I* and her mom on Monday which was a lovely fall day. What a hoot this little toddler is! Soooo sweet and adorable! I’m a little late on my sneak peek- but hopefully you’ll find it worth the wait!
The *S* family recently relocated to MN from AZ….and the day of their session was one of those perfect MN fall days that makes you so happy to reside in Minnesota. Truly just PERFECTION. It’s one of the little things about living here…we have an appreciation for Fall and Spring that people in other states do not. Come here for the winter and you’ll understand why
Anyhoo- on to the sneak peek…. is this family just not GORGEOUS!! Talk about photogenic and so easy-peasy to be around. They made my job a piece of cake!
Beautiful Miss *J* who’s only 7 but seems so much more mature and wise for her young years.
Spunky Mr. *A* who I greatly appreciated laughing at my silly puppet shows- this was I believe about a stinky skunk. Why is the word “stinky” so amusing to 2yr olds? I don’t know- but I embrace it!
This to me is the epitome of their ages….7 and so calm and posed…2 and ready to spring into action!
This just plain cracks me UP!
There’s just nothing like a walk through the woods in the Fall…
This one just makes me smile
Anyone who’s ever met my kids- knows they can talk. I mean…TALK. They are insane chatterboxes. It’s rare that I run into a family with kids as chatty as mine. Up till now the only kids I’ve met that could outchat mine- are my friend Sara’s (kids seen here) These 3 sisters were such a hoot! Endless chitchat and verbal energy that had me laughing, just because I felt so at home. Besides being able to tell me lots and lots of stories- they were also just completely sweet and fun to be around.
I don’t know who wins- *L* and his gorgeous red hair, or his little brother *R* and his amazing windswept ‘do. They are both so stinking cute they had me grinning for the whole session with their sweet, happy, joyous personalities. The day was overcast which gave us perfect lighting for enjoying this notorious Mpls park.
Seriously…his hair…just sooooo cute
This was the very last image I captured and I think it might be my favorite
It seems lately the newborns I’ve photographed have been of good size- it’s been awhile since I’ve had a little one! Isn’t she just the cutest thing! A few weeks old but very accommodating of my “arranging” her for photographs. I’ve been WAITING for awhile to have a teeny baby girl to try the shot in the pettiskirt so was very excited to be able to do it!
They won’t stay curled up like this for long….but I do love it when they do.
Of course baby feet….my blog followers know I have a soft spot for baby feet
I will admit to having a weakness for this pose….I just love it, and it’s HARD to do with wobbly newborns so when it works my heart does a little happy dance
Four weeks old and cute as a button! He was very interested in his surroundings however, and not so interested in falling asleep. That’s the tricky part with newborns- they go from sleeping like rocks 24/7 to unpredictable awake times within only a few short weeks! Clients often ask when scheduling sessions why I plan on 2-3hrs…it seems like a long time, but most of that time is spent waiting for baby to settle in, eat, get changed, etc. I joke it’s 2hrs of waiting and 30min of shootingYou just never know what the baby will be like that day- which is why I’m never in hurry- we’ll take all the time we need!
The great part about Baby H’s mix of asleep vs awake is that we were able to get some great photos of him in both states!
I just love his little half sneer in this one
Sooo snuggly and beautiful!
His lips just kill me- sooo stinking cute!
I love his Buddha-like pose in this….(his choice, hee hee)
I think mom and dad will find him sleeping like this for many years to come…
Okay seriously- is she not just the cutest thing?? Those bottom teeth just kill me! Miss *P* was a little unsure of the whole being photographed thing, but she warmed up to it, thanks to her parents great ideas to get her laughing!
I went to grab a few for the sneak peek but couldn’t stop- there just so many adorable ones! So they get an extra few
Must start with my FAVORITE!
Her expression just cracks me up!
Isn’t she sweet?
Look I can walk! (with some help of course…)
With her sweet little doggy
Her two favorite fingers…
Are her eyelashes not divine??
