two adorable boys

Long time no blog....let me catch everyone up on what's been going on around here. First, our son is finally feeling better, although the medication from his surgery (tonsil and adenoid removal) is still making him not feel great. I can easily say I am glad it will be all over soon. It is hard to watch your kids in pain! I am getting back in to the swing of work and we be returning a lot of emails and phone calls :)
Now onto the photos! This session was too cute. I encourage everyone who is booking a session with us to take some time and read the "investment" section of our website. It has all kinds of helpful hints to make a session go great. One of the things I write about is clothing. Clothing, location, and light set the stage for a great photoshoot. For this shoot the mom of these cuties took my advice and went to check out the clothing websites of Gap, Old Navy, and Gymboree. There she found clothing inspiration and these outfits that the boys are wearing. I love the details of their outfits. Everything was perfect from their hats to their shoes...not to say that I do not like simple outfits. In fact I photographed these boys back in February in plains jeans with no shirts in a huge field of grass, which I love just the same! If you follow my blog you know I am obsessed with fields.
I really loved everything about this shoot. The boys made me run around a bit after them, but it was totally worth it! Seeing their photos make me wonder what it would have been like to grow up with a brother or sister. They have so much fun together.

It looks like fall is here. What kid does not love throwing leaves?

A bit longer

Well our son had his tonsils and adenoids taken out on Friday and he did really well. He came home happy and in minimal pain. It looked like a fast road to recovery...but there's a bump in the road. He has not felt well the past 24 hours, has a temp and is getting sick. I am guessing that means we will be heading back to the doctors as soon as they open. It's 4:15 am right now and I am pushing off heading back to the hospital.

So please give us a few extra days and we will back to normal...I hope :) I know a few people have left us messages and we will return calls ASAP.

We'll be out...

We will be out for a few days. Our son is having his tonsils and adenoids taken out tomorrow morning. Please email us and leave messages still...just know we will call or write back early next week :)
What would a post be without a few pictures? We did a mini shoot of our kids tonight. Once more we use them as location testers. I think I may like this new spot :)

They keep growing!

It's so amazing to see how much kids change in 1 year. I did this family's pictures 1 year ago and their daughter was just a baby. Now she walks and understands 3 languages! She will be one smart little girl. Now about her parents...I love these people! I have so many stories I could tell about them (mostly the momma) we worked together at Old Navy back in 1997. I feeled so blessed to be able to now capture memories for people that I love. Wu family...I hope you like them!

I need to explain this picture. Her parents said "home alone" and this is what she would do! :) She was so cute!

Time to breathe...

What a crazy week we had! Our son started his first day at a new private school. I was so scared for him, but he did so well. He already had friends there from church so he felt very comfortable. By the 2nd day of school he walked on to campus like he had been there for years :) I'll post a picture of that soon as I have time to look at them. These past two weeks have been crazy! I have two more photo shoots to blog in the next few days. Both sessions were great! Since I have one of the sessions open on my computer now, I'll give you a little taste of the fun.

How cute is that outfit?!!! When I post the full blog from this session I will share my thoughts on kid's clothing and why I think it makes all the difference. More to come :)

Little Miss M

If you follow my blog, you've seen little Miss M before. For this shoot we did something a bit different. We did an urban photo shoot and I think she looks so cute! This gives kids the chance to really bounce around have some fun.
