A laughing family and some fun pagent shots

So last year with these guys we did a bunch of photos of the kids together (adorable), and then at the end, their oldest daughter had started saying she wanted to try beauty pagents, so they had me do some "pagent" headshots for her.

Well, who would have guessed? She LOVED the pagent thing. Her mom laughs about it, but when a kid has that much fun doing something... you can't say no, you know? She even won Best Photo in the pagent, so that was cool. So now... this year, when her mom called me, we figured we could try for family photos first and then also snag a bunch more pagent shots. Here's the gorgeous group having a laugh:

And little baby A isn't a baby anymore! I can't believe how big she's gotten... and how adorable she still is. Love it.

And then (how'd you guess?) here come the pagent shots. I have to tell you - 5 year old S is hilarious! She had her ups and downs during these photos (all the costume changes took us a while, and she was a trooper to put up with it all)... but I have to admit, she's a complete natural when it comes to this stuff. Incredible energy, spunk, and such a twinkle in her eye. Just a pleasure to photograph :) And so fun for me to be creative in a different way with these... really out of my normal style, but totally fun!

(Jeanne, don't worry, we got so many great ones it was hard to choose just a few for the blog... I'll have all of the pagent ones ready for you ASAP! Can't wait to show you.)

And the little ballerina patiently waits. I'm just a sucker for the light in this one. So soft and elegant.

Modeling in her future, maybe?

And my most favorite pagent shot of all - isn't this fantastic? Thanks to Dad for holding the hose and thanks to Mom for letting us get all wet! I think it was totally worth it.
