My last shoot of 2008

What an incredible year it's been! Here's another beautiful girl I've known since she was just a few weeks old. I've loved being there as little N has grown. Here she is now, in all her three year old glory:

And telling me all about her blocks:

So wonderful to see you again! Have a wonderful holiday, and see you next year :)

Many years, big girls

I've been taking pictures of these girls every year since I started my business back in 2003, and they've gotten so big!
1145 by you.

It's sweet, because they know I'm coming, and remember having done this year after year, so the three of us just wander the house inside and out, and their parents like to keep the pictures as a surprise, so it's up to us to play and take fun pictures. I love this one out in the snow:

And ever since the beginning, the girls have always included their beloved stuffed animals, so we had to get them in a few shots, of course:
1017 by you.

And this was their favorite trick of this year's photos - the carry. I have to say it again - I can't believe how big they've gotten!

I have three more shoots in 2008, but I think I'm going to take a blogging break until 2009.

We had snow, and cuteness - all at once

Gorgeous girl B is only ten months old, but she's very sweet to her pup:

Doesn't she look like such a little angel here?

We actually had snow outside as we were shooting - it was a winter wonderland :)

And even when you're ten months old and perfect, there comes a time when the photos are done. I love this! Really great to meet you guys, thanks for a fun shoot.

A big brother and sister welcome their new twin brother and sister

4 year old big brother H likes to be the one to hold his new six week old sister and brother. Two year old sister P's job was "patter", though, and she did a fabulous job:

Three years of grins

I love going back and seeing families I've known since their babies were tiny - it's so much fun for me. I met big brother W and big sister A three years ago when they were just a few weeks old, and now they have a sweet sister L:

Ladies first, here's the beautiful three year old now:
09988 by you.

And sweet girl L - love her tongue here:

And the handsome three year old W:

All my favorites are pictures of all three? What?

So normally I like to choose individual shots of each of the kids, maybe one of all three together when we have a group of cuties in the pictures... but this time I have five favorites that all have all three of them in them. Crazy.
I love how the one thing in really crisp focus in this one is Monty - the pup in the back:
9400 by you.

These guys think their little sister is pretty hilarious:
9445 by you.

And it's always good to dance:
9426 by you.

Here are the three of them inside relaxing in the windowseat:

And of course we had to add the fourth baby to the shot :)
Great to see you guys again!

A fun 2 year old guy

We had a great time last week playing with these guys in their backyard:
9103 by you.

Isn't he a handsome guy?

I love this of big boy S being Superman with dad - the curtains behind them are so cool looking!
9055 by you.

And of course doing some of his coloring with mom:
9001 by you.

And although we got lots of cute ones of the three of them smiling all together, I had to post this one - it makes me laugh so much! Loved seeing you guys - talk to you soon :)

Big sister hugs

A huge hug from big sister M gave little sister J a reason to grin last weekend:

But her dad's funny faces were even better:

Isn't big girl M just gorgeous? I love this one:

Wonderful to see you guys again. I hope the move goes/went OK!

Five smiles, five shots

In choosing my favorite pictures from this cutie's photoshoot last weekend, I had a problem - they were all smiling shots. I know that's not a problem, but I think it says something about the temperament of this gorgeous boy:
8474 by you.

I love how his mom and dad are giggling here:
8547 by you.

And nothing beats a belly tickle:
8499 by you.

Flying high:

So nice to meet you guys! Thanks for having me :)
