I have the fondest memories of my cousins. They made me giggle and laugh and were the holder of some pretty funny secrets. So it was with great pleasure that I was asked to capture some sweet smiles and moments for these cousins and siblings. Here are some snapshots of our time together. More to come with your gallery. Enjoy your sneak peek, M Family.

Meet the youngest...
MR. C.
At just 3 months, his deep blue eyes made me swoon!

Meet MISS L.
LOVE her sweet tongue smile! It was beyond cute! Lucky me! I get to photograph more of her at her 6 month milestone next week!

Meet Mr. C.
Cute as can be with a charming little grin. He told me he liked cheese on his cheeseburgers but not pickles or onions or mustard. For some reason that made me giggle.

Meet Mr. B.
Warm brown eyes and Big Brother to Miss L. He also has the power to read minds and rock the camera with his GORGEOUS smile.

{Because quote}

I came across this last night on one of my mentoring sites. Worth thinking about if you are on the fence about investing in child or family portraiture...

Because …

Baby lips and noses and toeses are the sweetest.

Because …

Little moments make life big.

Because …

Life is too short to forget.

Because …

Tomorrow is too long to wait.

Because …

There are no do-overs.

There are a million reasons to invest in beautiful images of your family. But maybe the best one is …

“just because.”

Get on the internet. Pick up the phone. Save your pennies.

Do what it takes TODAY to ensure that your family memories are captured for a lifetime.

The first thing most people would take out of their house in a fire?

Their photo albums and pictures.

Not … cars or clothes or couches or counter-tops.

{Eye Candy}

These two blue eyed brothers are some of my favorite subjects to photograph. Those eyes! They get me every time!!!
They are like eye candy to me! Yum! Yum!
Grandma requested to do a special session to capture these two at some really adorable ages. It made me think back to the photos I took of my 1st two boys when they were 4 and 1. Seems like such a long time ago now that they are 14, 11 and 8 but in some ways,
it's seems like yesterday looking back at those photos of them.
Though these two brothers are at a challenging spread, talk of Batman costumes and Halloween candy, helped to capture some of these sweet grins. I'm really thrilled at how they turned out
and can't wait for their family to see the rest.
Just a sneak for now.

{Bring On the Fun & A Little Beatles Please}

I had one of the best times photographing this talented family tonight. I'm always excited when families go along and trust me with my photo ideas. I already knew that music played a big part in their lives, so when the idea came up, they were happy to bring along some of their instruments. I even got a little Beatles played for me. I was a lucky girl tonight!
Thank you, A family, for sharing some fun moments with me. You have a wonderful family. It was so nice to see you all have fun and an even greater pleasure witnessing the love and affection you have for one another.
You are so blessed.
Enjoy your sneak peek!
More to come real soon!

{John Deere Baby Turns 1}

I have had the honor of documenting this cherubs 1st year. You can see his pictures here and here. I can remember his 1st session as a newborn because his daddy could not wait to get him on his John Deere tractor. Dad had it completely restored prior to this little man's entrance into this world. You see, this tractor belonged to his daddy so it's special appearance in this session had great sentimental meaning to mommy and daddy and I'm pretty sure, grandma and grandpa too! With so many darn cute ones to share, I narrowed the peek to these. My favorite shot of the day is this first one. It just cracks me up and I don't know about you, but I could look all day into those deep blue eyes. Once again, AB&C, thank you! I feel blessed to have such wonderful friends who trust me with capturing these special milestones for them. Enjoy your glimpse!

{2 Great Kiddos}

I love these two kiddos. This is my second year photographing them and they are two of the nicest and well behaved kids I've ever been around. (I think I said that before but I truly mean it!) They are a photographers dream! I mean, who wouldn't want to photograph them? Take a look at these GORGEOUS and FUN kids! Enjoy your sneak peek, H Family. Like Q said, I can't wait to do it again next year!
Thanks so much for sharing your children with me.
XoXo, T
