Sneak Peek + Family

Another sneak peek of a very beautiful family.  Little "S" won my heart when she got there by just sleeping.  There is nothing better than a sleepy baby, and she let us tug on the blankets and move her all around....... she was a tired little girl.

Next is the big sister Miss "O", isn't she adorable?  I love that she brought her bunny along.  When I was taking pictures of her little sister she was taking pictures of bunny.  Bunny smiled too :)

Gave the girls a little playing time.

I have really enjoyed spending the time with all these families and especially enjoy helping them to treasure these moments in the lives.

Family Sneak Peek

Another family that I had the pleasure to spend a day with.  Their location of choice was Big Falls.  It's so pretty there and they certainly love that location.  Hard part with the Falls is keeping on your feet when trying to move from one location to another but we all managed.

There is a sense of peacefulness in all these photos...... 

well when we weren't slapping mosquitoes :) 

Thank you all for spending the morning with me and letting me capture your memories.

Another family sneak peek

The great part of taking photos is meeting all these cuties.  
These two are certainly full of smiles and personality. 

Love this photo.

The little one is a thumb sucker..... I love thumb suckers when they are little.  My 3 were all thumb suckers and they didn't quit until they had braces. (sorry kids)

The boys were certainly interested when dad made the frogs jump.  They were so fun to watch, they would giggle when the frogs jumped and splashed in the water.

One more just because he was such a tractor lover.

Family Sneak Peek

I met up with this family on Saturday and instantly fell in love with them.  The kids had so much energy and were not shy at all.  We started out with a family photo and got all 3 kids standing still for .2 seconds. 

Miss B didn't mind the camera at all and could sit still for at least 2 minutes.

Next is Middle B and he was the fastest one in the family.  He stood still for 10 seconds at the most.

And then Littlest B was so darn cute.  He tried to keep up to the other two but he's not quite fast enough yet.  Soon though

And then mom and dad tried to get in a few photos while Grandma kept all 3 "B"s from falling in the river or running into the street.  Thank you both for an enjoyable morning, you are doing a wonderful job of raising 3 very energetic kids.  Your hard work will pay off when they are older and being so close in age they will be best friends.

Beautiful Miss A's Sneak Peaks

What a pretty little girl and her personality makes her beautiful.  I remember her momma when she was about the same age and Miss A looks just like her.  We had such a fun night getting her to stop playing long enough to look up every once in a while.  

I don't know if I like the color or the black and white so I gave you both.

Oh so sweet, love the bracelet.  Items like bracelets and painted fingers and toes make a huge difference in photos even though they are small and sometimes they aren't noticed it's the times that they are that count.  If you're getting your little girls photo taken please take the time to put on her bracelet that she might have just for church and paint her nails you'll be happy that you did.  

As my sister-in-law always says "It's the small details that make the difference"

And again black and white stole my heart

Miss A you are a natural!!

Tis the season for fruit photos.

And one more fun photo of Miss A being silly.

Sneak Tease

Just one pic for tonight, it's late but this was such a fun session that I couldn't resist sharing one before I hit the hay.  I have lots more coming so keep checking back in to see how beautiful this little girl is.

Loving the sunset lighting up her hair.

Purple Glads

Lynn and Jesse gave me Purple Glad Bulbs for Mothers Day and they are beautiful.  I never planted them before but I can tell that next year I'll need to grow more colors.  They are so pretty and last a long time, the only bad thing is they don't stand up straight in the gardens, but that just means they have to come in the house.

Family Sneak Peek

Such a sweet family and this little girl is just adorable in her pink ruffled dress.  Mom requested fun casual moments which are my favorite kind.

Miss G didn't like the wood chips on her feet, but I love the pouting face she gave me.

Missing Grandkids

My grandkids have been missing from this blog for some time now and I'll tell you why.........  Elly hates her picture being taken, Garrett and Elly run, jump, hide, scream, chase, and even sometimes cry, and Mr. Max is a fuss-bucket.  So when they are here I just enjoy them without the drama the camera causes.  

Tonight Lynn was bringing Mr Max over but she didn't want me to have to take care of fuss-bucket and chase Mally so she was leaving her home with daddy.  It took a lot of convincing but I finally got Lynn to agree to bring them both and I would be fine.  (I think she forgot I raised 3 children)  So we were set for tonight and then Shan calls and says "can you pick up Elly and G-Man tonight?"  Sure I can, but I thought to myself {Lynn better not find out}.  Well Shan told Lynn that I was going to have her two so she sends me an e-mail and says "I will leave Mally home, that's 4 kids you can't possibly want to take care of all 4 of them".  I told her all 4 would be fine and she better bring Mally or Elly and Garrett would be upset and she would soon learn that 2 kids is a lot of work but add #3 and/or #4 and it doesn't change much.  She e-mails back and says I guess you come from a family of 11 so 4 is no big deal to you.  I told her to remember Grandpa Earl on Father's day weekend with all his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren that were playing, running, jumping, screaming, fishing, biking, eating, and crying while he sat in his lawn chair with the biggest smile on his face and then he says "I think we need more kids in this family".  That's where I get it from.... there is never too many kids and there is always room for more.  

So tonight while I was here by myself with all 4 monsters Maximum decided to have fussy time so we walked and jiggled and talked and stripped him naked to try to dry him off from the sweat and drool.  He finally got comfy and I sweet talked the other 3 into taking one picture for me.  I told them it would be fun we would go outside and they could all squish together into one chair.  They all agreed, I didn't really think it would happen but I was willing to get what I could.  

IT WORKED, I love these kids (but remember there is always room for more) {wink, wink}

When Grandpa came home he got to give rides to the 3 monsters that hardly let him in the door and they're asking for a "4-eeler rides".

Poor Maximum doesn't get a ride yet but he sure is cute.
