She is cute, bossy, talented and only one! This tutu was a great idea by mom for her session. Love the images of her and Jake the dog and also at the piano. I could have stayed all day. Thanks for peeking.

My Christams cards

I know when LOTS of parents leave our sessions I reassure them that we have cute images because they think their child was "uncooperative." It's intimidating sometimes for a child to enter a big dark scary room with props and big flashing lights. They may get up from the "posed" position for what seems like the millionth time, but I won't let you leave unless I know I've got some great images.
Just to prove my point I love to share just a few of the out takes from sessions with my sons. This is just a few of my favorite outtakes from our 300+ image session. (I still didn't get exactly what I wanted, but I have a few that will work.)
Hope you get a laugh at this crazy session.

Ethan is my best friend Tricia's little boy. He is SUPER smart, very sweet and just an all-around great kid. He loves super heroes as does every 5-year-old -- he takes great care of his "guys" and I think he has inherited his mother's OCD. There is NEVER a toy out of place.
Ethan and his mommy
From Day One, he always reminded me of his daddy, Danny. The older he gets, the more the resemblance. His smile, sense of humor and a bit of his personality, too. Here's to hoping he gained his daddy cooking skills as well! Looking at these images of Ethan, all I could see was Danny. Ethan's daddy lost his battle to cancer in 2006.
I LOVE these images of Ethan. We had so much fun during our session. I rarely get to spend time with just him and Tricia. My boys are always yelling in the back ground ;) So our photo session was a treat.
When I look at these photos, I’m little sad, too. I'm not sure if it's because Ethan's getting so big -- it seems much too fast! Look at how little he was in the photos with his mommy. Maybe I was feeling the season, or missing Danny, or just amazed as how much Ethan really looks like his daddy in all these images. Maybe I’m missing seeing Danny and Ethan together. It could be a combination of all of the above, I'm not sure. I can only imagine the goofy things Danny would have Ethan say and do at this age. Maybe that, above all.

Love you E and of course Tricia too!


Look at these little angels!

Look at what Santa brought my mom for Christmas. Good thing my dad was hunting when Teddy arrived. Not sure he would have been able to stay.
Teddy was needed my mom's bff Militmeter AKA Millie passed away early last spring and it was time for her to get a new one. He is a spunky little thing, but boy is he cute!

Of course my boys had to have a crazy face photo with Santa. Who doesn't?

I love that these two families used the next two images as their Christmas cards. I can't wait to see them!

Santa was as much fun this year as he was last year. Here are a few of my instant favorites!

Bursting at the seams

This little guys personality is so big it's bursting at the seams. I love our sessions together. We decided an Urban session fit his personality and I'm sure you can just hear the squeals of laughter. I love that sound!


These little guys are so much fun to photograph. We picked a cold day and tried to have an outdoor session. They were not having it so we packed up. Good thing my studio is only a five minute drive from this park. Then we were left an incredible variety and some super cute images! (If I don't say so myself.)
