My last family of 2011!

I feel so blessed to know so many great families.  This family we've known since we moved out here 6 years ago.  Their daughter has baby-sat my kids, and the boys are so good to my little boys.  In fact....this is my family in about 10 years!  Girl, boy, boy!  If my kiddos turn out like these kiddo's I"ll be one lucky mama.  
One of my favorite things about this photo shoot was their dog Kali.  She is an old, sweet, mama, and has had some surgeries as of lately, and they wanted her in some of their pictures.  Having had a childhood dog, I was more than happy to!  I know there are photographers out there that just do pet photography--so it was kind of fun to do my first.  It was much like photographing a toddler.  :)  You  have to be fast, and talk in a really high voice.  lol

Done for 2011!
Looking forward to Spring, and photographing Seniors.  :)

Sweet Baby Reeve

Look at the sweet baby girl!!!  She is such a sweetie, and so happy for Shandie to get a little girl.  I love the last picture of this post, where big brother Dylan is looking up at Mom holding his sister.  So sweet.

Halloween Friends

I'd like to think that there are benefits to being my friend.  lol  Well, at least when your kid is friends with my kid...there are benefits.  :)  And its even better when it goes both ways.  This morning I got to hang out with with my friends and Will's friends.  He started to get a little bugged when he wasn't in any of the pictures but, we did his photos last week.    Time flies so fast, these babies won't be babies for much longer.

These two Angry Birds were such troopers--they had just come from an immunization visit, and a surprise flu shot.

Halloween Photo Shoot

I wanted to try a new location in Simi for pictures, so I took my kiddos out in their costumes for a fun photo shoot.  My son, was quite in character--a very serious Thor.  My daughter has been obsessed with dragons for the past 2-3 years, so she was thrilled to find a dragon costume again this year.  My baby loves Buzz lightyear, so I actually bought him Pajamas from the disney store.  They are made much better, and he can where them again and again after Halloween.  That is thrifty Liz for ya!  :)

Go out and get great photos of your kids in their costumes.  Its so fun--here is a link that I love about photographing children for Halloween.  Tips for Great Halloween Photos

There's Nothing like your First Baby

There is nothing like your first baby.  You have no idea what you're in for.  Everything is so exciting, precious, stressful, and wonderful.  These guys took me back eight years when we had our first little girl.  This little lady is a doll, and mom and dad are pretty great too.  :)

Family Photo Shoot

Oh how I love this family.  They are a repeat from last year.  You can see last year's photo shoot here.  
This little guy has grown up so much.  He is going to be GOOD at sports when he grows up.  No fear--his dad has had him up on the wake board with him already.  He is such a little ninja!  He was running and summer-salting all over the place--serious skills!
