A sugar cube will do ya’…

This is one of my absolute…all-time…favorite…no nonsense…drama-free…solid girls…from one of my all-time favorite families.  Sweet Parker has a love affair with this big gal…and college, et al. is about to come between them.  What a fun morning and a total pleasure watching you with her.  Love that the pocket full of sugar cubes kept her curious and flirtatious!

Have a great rest of the summer…and the Dews want a send-off before you head to Ole Miss!

Sand-bathing…

I am always amazed that children can enjoy sand as much as they do.  My husband goes to the beach…refuses to take a chair…stands anxiously around those enjoying the sun…and then despises the packing up/riding home routine.  His theory…he’d rather take nothing to the beach so nothing gets sand on it.  I get it to some degree…but I can at least enjoy myself.

These two…don’t mind it one bit!  Love it.

A HUGE heaping of love…

Boy, sometimes it’s a super small world and God puts you right where you need to be.  That’s exactly the way I felt when I drove away from this big ole’ family last night.  So much love and joy amongst ALL of them…I could see, hear and feel it.  There was laughter, music, dancing, flirting…just fabulous.  They’ve got stories from Kazakhstan to Scottish Rite to being ninety-eight years old to seeing the ocean for the very first time.

I walked in and we immediately started playing the Athens name game…realizing we had some pretty close connections…outside of the ones that brought us together for the shoot.  When I left, I quickly made more connections for three families who never dreamed of or ever wanted to be initiated into the same club.

Life is light and happy for these in this first picture.  Ohhh the life story that could be written just between the two of them.

~ Peeeggg ~ it will come back to you…

I most enjoyed my afternoon with this sweet family.  I feel like we are old friends as we seemed to discuss everything from baby poop to world peace.  Sweet “P”, Mama and Daddy are all adjusting nicely…but I’m not so sure about the furry older brother!  I’m sure baby girl will grow on him soon.  Here is a little sneak peek…and I’ll put the rest up soon!

Small world…

It’s a crazy small world – when two unrelated clients/families in the past month – have had connections to DePaul University.  My son goes to DePaul in Chicago, IL and I had never even heard of the school until he started the college search.  Meeting this family was such a treat as each and every member, small children included, had a pleasant, happy disposition.  Chicagoans are fabulous people!  Here is a sneak peek of our morning together!

Sweet Lily of the Valley…

I love my work and shooting a delivery is by far one of my VERY FAVORITE things to do.  This sweet couple is special and possess an incredible energy and presence together.  They are easy-going, happy, supportive and on the same page.  Smith…party of FOUR…you’re rockin’ and rollin’.  Cannot WAIT to shoot the 2-week and include little man.  Thanks for a fabulous evening.  Oh…and remember this not too long ago (look familiar?)
