Lucas is two!!

How in the world is this kid already two years old?!?!  
And wow--I was not ready for his energy!  This little guy was busy!  He was running through the field, tripping and crashing on everything, but he loved it and never was bothered.  I needed to have worn my running shoes to keep up with him.  What a sweetie he is.  :)
Lucas's mom is a good friend of mine, who has been so supportive of me and this journey I've started.   She was pretty much my first subject that wasn't my own  kiddos.  I appreciate so much her encouragement and support these last couple of years.  Enjoy her handsome little man.  :)

Baby Garrett

This guy was really fun to photograph!  He is just seven days old in these photos, one of the youngest I've had.  Loved it!
We did his mama's photos just the week before.  She had him four days later.  

Love his eyes open in this one.  Looks exactly like his siblings, so cute!

School Pictures

So our school does Spring Pictures.  They bring in a photographer that has a green screen and takes photos, the kids get to choose their back grounds, they love it.  Me....not so much.  I think some of the backgrounds are quite tacky....But...I still buy at least one page.  Even though I know I can get something much better, I can't refuse them.  Lol--something about their faces.  :)  



38 Weeks!!

Its fun what you learn about people when you take their photographs.  I really enjoy chatting away, and hoping to get some natural emotions out of people.  Come to find out, this friend of mine is a natural in front of the camera.  Turns out she has had some "pageant" time.  Oh yeah!!!  Such a shocker to me!  This is the mom that is totally into bugs and lizards and, and going to Costa Rica.  Never would I have pegged her for a pageant girl.  :)  Love it!  So many fun layers to people.
I talked her into doing some photos because this is her last baby.  I think women are very hesitant to be photographed super pregnant, because you feel horrible! But, the more I've thought about it, these pictures are not for you....they are not meant to go on your walls....they are meant for your children.  Especially your daughters.   Because one day they will be young mommies, and what a treasure it will be to them to have a picture of their mom in the same stage of life.

Bollard Kiddo's

This photo shoot was a long time coming.  Mom had the outfits, we discussed what we wanted to do, the weather tried to stop us....but we finally got it done!  These kiddos are adorable!!  Mom is one of my favorite clients, she is always very generous with her compliments.  :)
