Kenison Pictures

The original location we picked for this family's pictures turned out to be completely and unmanageably busy so they sportingly agreed to try out a completely new location. And I'm really glad they did because not only did we have the place all to ourselves, but it turned out to be a great place for pictures.

Get ready for three of the loveliest girls.

And some nice lady even brought over this adorable antique tricycle. This shoot was really so fun.

Fuentes Pictures

This is the third time I've done pictures with this family and I just adore them. I love so many of the pictures from this shoot.

Remember these little heartbreakers from last year? If anything they're more gorgeous now.

And now they've added another beautiful girl to their collection.

Thanks you guys, I had a great time!

Duffin family

After the cold cold weather of mid-October, I was worried that picture-season had come to a close. Fortunately it warmed right back up and this last week has been crazy busy. This family had great energy and they were just awesome to work with.

The kids were so cute and fun to work with. They were silly and loved to run around but they pretty much did everything I asked them to.

There were so many from this shoot that I loved... sorry!

Look at those lovely blue eyes!

Baby Milo

My dear friend Jessica brought her darling baby boy over for some pictures. I had a fabulous time with them. It's lucky she dedicated an entire afternoon to this, because little Milo was so determined to be awake that it took a while to get him resigned to the idea of taking pictures. I think this is the only sleeping picture we were able to get.

He was awake the the rest of the time but fairly agreeable. Milo's dad had a special blanket when he was little that has been saved all these years. We took some pictures with 'Lankie'.

And then when Nate was on his mission, he had another special well-loved blanket, 'Mission Lankie'.

Thanks baby Milo, you are so precious and adorable!

Sanford Family Pictures

I did this cute family's pictures last week and I love how they turned out. It was such a beautiful fall day and we were lucky that it was warm weather.

The two girls were completely different, one was 100% cooperative and easy to take pictures of.

And the other was SO tired and shy (there was a chicken running around that she was afraid of) but we did get some lovely shots of her.

They're so adorable!

Thanks you guys!

Jackie's maternity shots

My ever-so-beautiful sister-in-law Jackie is expecting a little girl in the new year - so it was the perfect time to take some belly pictures of her!

We loved playing around with all the lighting options available in my house - this is my daughter's pretty daybed but we loved the soft pink canopy.

I love the light in this picture but it makes me laugh because we had a black backdrop hanging off the back deck with the barbecue grill right behind her and both my kids running around like little crazies.

I wouldn't have guessed this would turn out as cute as it did - I love the contrast.

I love the bright colors of this one and the light was so fun to play with.

This shot looks so easy-breezy but it was a nightmare. Sheer fabric hanging from the trees, the neighbor's cat attacking everything that moved... we loved how it turned out though.

Our family pictures

My entire family got together for a big group picture. We loved the location where I did the previous shoot so much that we all met there. My dad brought his camera to take a few shots and my sister's boyfriend took the group ones after I set everything up. It was a much better arrangement than the set-the-timer-and-run technique that had been previously employed. Especially since my shoes were not of the 'sensible' variety.

My dad, the two Joes and the cutest grandson ever.

My mom and her three girls. My daughter put her foot down and wouldn't be part of this picture.

I never took engagements or bridals of this sister when she got married, so I took lots of pictures of the two of them to make it up to her.

Plus now they have a new addition - a furry clawed one.

I love this picture of my three cuties.

15 phone calls to decide what colors we were wearing, 2 hours of shopping for jeans, probably hundreds of combined miles of driving and 183 pictures later we have the finale - the big group shot.
You guys are awesome! I love you!
