Here are a few shots of Finn and Laira. I think they are just too cute together.

big sister

November 27, 2008

This is yesterday’s newborn’s oldest sister. She is a senior in high school. We braved the cold and wind for her senior photos. Looking at her you’d never know how cold it was. 

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving. We are taking the kids to see Madagascar this afternoon and are hoping Finn will sit through it.

baby sister

November 26, 2008

This little one is the youngest of 5. Her oldest sister is a senior in high school (whose senior photos I will be posting later). Mom said she usually sleeps all morning, of course today she was up for the first hour and a half I was there. Finally we were able to get her to sleep to get some cute sleeping shots, but first we got some of her wide awake.

another family of boys

November 24, 2008

The last few families I have photographed have all had boys. These brothers were absolutely adorable. Their mom owns Willow Creek Studio. She makes tote bags and memory blankets. You have to check out her site. Her stuff is so cool, I especially like the military bags.

my pay it forward

November 23, 2008

For my part in the Pay it Forward project, I met up with Beth Cardwell and her family. We did the majority of the session inside their house because it was 28 degrees outside. We did manage to brave the freezing temperatures to get a few shots outside.

snow dogs

November 21, 2008

We had our first snow today. Thank goodness the kids boots and snowsuits from last year still fit or they would have been really upset that we couldn’t go out and play. The dogs LOVE the snow, especially Sebastian. He loves catching snowballs. 8 years old and look at the air he gets!

around the house

November 17, 2008

Just a few shots of the kids playing around the house today. I am trying to get into cold weather mode, which means shooting indoors. First, Reese playing hide and seek. She likes to hide under the covers in my bed.

This photo was taken at 2000 ISO! Any photographers reading will get why I am excited about this!

family

November 16, 2008

This family was a lot of fun. We met at a local lake and the boys were excited to get to feed the ducks at the end of the session.
