Christmas Miracle

This little guy is nearly a month old and still teeny-tiny. He is a gem who couldn't hold out until his due date of early January. Lucky me! I got to take his pictures this morning. I had a great time with this cutie and his wonderful family. Thanks to his mom and dad for making me feel so at home for his entire session! *click on any picture to see it larger.

One more... I'm having fun going through these...

'Tis the season

I took a few minutes out of our busy holiday season to chase around this darling 2 year old. He was full of energy and not easily amused by my silly sounds. He did enjoy chasing the "meow meows" though. I love this photo of the whole family. Aren't they a good looking family!?

Bestill my heart!

This little guy stole my heart. He is the sweetest little thing and was so happy even though it was naptime. Children like him make my heart smile. **Click on any photo to see it larger.

I had fun with two precious little girls this morning. The younger sister gave me a run for my money, but eventually cracked a smile or two. She was being a typical 3 year old little girl. I'm glad that she did warm up. Her older sister was a perfect little model. She was willing to do just about anything I asked. Here are a couple of my favorites. *click on any photo to see it larger

You can tell it was cold from the rosy cheeks and pink little nose on this precious 2 year old. He was a typical 2 year old who worked well for treats. Despite the cold, we got some great pictures of them! Enjoy this sneak peek! *click on any picture to see it larger.

One more family session for me today. A great family with children who looked where I asked and didn't run away. Well, we did try some with their dog, but she did run away. Other than that, a great session. The fall leaves were the perfect backdrop for them. *click on any picture to see it larger.

Jake and his family

Can you guess who Jake is? At 2 years old, he lives up to the energetic stereotype of toddlers. His family was great working around him and getting the perfect shot. Thanks everyone for the great afternoon! It was fun. *click on any picture to see it larger.

Girls, Girls, Girls!!

This family was complete with a houseful of girls. The two older sisters were so helpful getting the little ones to smile, laugh and play. I had a great time taking their pictures on the unusually warm fall day. *click any picture to see it larger.

A great family!

Seven of them all together and they were all smiles for me. Take a sneak peek of the children in this great family. Look at the baby of the family... isn't he a doll!?

This afternoon, I met this great couple near the bay. It was 40 degrees outside with a bone-chilling wind. They were great sports! Aren't they a perfect couple? Thanks for sticking it out in the cold! **click on any photo to see it larger.

Yay! Look what I got to play with this morning. He is not even 2 weeks old yet and a perfect angel. First time mom and dad were precious and let me do whatever I wanted with him. Grandma was the BEST assistant I've ever had! All in all a perfect session. *Click on any photo to see it larger.

I had the pleasure of photographing these 4 cousins this afternoon. They were all super subjects. The 3 year old started off with a bang, then decided it was more fun to act his age. What 3 year old wouldn't want to run around and have some fun? The rest of them were awesome! They made my job much easier and even were able to suggest pictures they wanted. *click on any picture to see it larger*

Is this the fall?

I was a bit worried about having this photo shoot on the beach in late October, but our crazy warm weather made it possible. This beautiful family drove me out onto the beach for the perfect location. The little man was a perfect ham and played around with the sand for nearly two hours without getting fussy. Amazing! *click on any photo to see it larger*

My Little Dorothy

I snapped a quick few photos of my own daughter in her Halloween costume before running out the door for a photo shoot yesterday afternoon. I was so pleased, I thought I'd share.


I was invited to come photograph a large family yesterday. They all looked fabulous! Here is a picture of 7 of the 27 that were there.

A Good Friend

My good friend was supposed to come this afternoon so I could get some great pictures of her SO VERY PHOTOGENIC children. Well, that was a good plan, until she started to come. Her little girl started to feel, not so well. Poor thing cried the entire time I was taking pictures of her brother. I was able to get photos of this cutie. I'll have to catch his little sister and mom another time. They all looked so good dressed up, too. I hope she is feeling better soon.

Pumpkin Patch!!!

This family had a wonderful home, complete with a pumpkin patch nearby. Taking photos in the pumpkin patch was a dream come true. This brother and sister were the perfect models and came up with some very creative ideas. Here's a sneak peek from today's session. **click on the images to see them larger**

Baby blues and a fun kindergartener...

Little A and her baby brother were the perfect photography subjects this evening. They offered up plenty of smiles and made things fun. Here are a couple of pictures from the session.

Full of love...

I spent the afternoon with this wonderful family. They are so full of love, I could see it throughout the session. Mom and dad are so tender with the newest addition, a precious little girl, and are so much fun with their older daughter. I am glad I had this opportunity. Here are a few photos from this afternoon.

Travelers from afar...

I had the pleasure of photographing this family tonight. Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt and Uncle flew in this week from Washington state. Little 'O' who turned 3 recently was a perfect model. I wish all families got along this well and were so much fun to photograph.

Another baby girl

This precious girl is a friend's fourth baby. She is sweet and very adaptable. She shares her house with her two brothers and a sister who are all 3 and younger. Her mom has her hands full, but seems to love it all. I was thrilled to be able to take this little one's photos this morning. She was bright eyed and content for most of the 2 hours I took pictures. Isn't she a doll?

Risk Takers

We were attacked... by mosquitoes. This family was willing to risk the possibility of west nile, malaria and other illnesses to humor me. I think it was totally worth it. I was even graced with a smile from a 2 year old, do you realize how hard that is to get? Look at how great they look!

Fresh Little Beauty

Baby "C" was the sweetest little thing. She is only 10 days old and slept nearly the entire 2.5 hours I was photographing her. I could move her into positions, change blankets and such without waking her up. She is clearly loved by her 3 sisters and a great addition to this family.\
