Preston, age 4

Thursday, January 23, 2014

Oh, Preston.  Most four year-olds pretty funny, but YOU, you're HILARIOUS.  If your future doesn't include acting, I'll be mighty surprised.

Um, are you KIDDING me with that look, Kid?!  That one above definitely ranks way up there on my favorites list.  WHOA.

Towards the end of the session, there really wasn't much left to do than DANCE.  Our pick?  "Cruise" by Florida Georgia Line featuring Nelly, one of Preston's and my personal favorites.  Judge away; we have no shame!

Happy birthday, Preston!  What a joy and an honor it has been photographing for you the last three & a half years!  Your mom & I have already started planning your senior pictures and I can't WAIT to see what a great young man you become.

"Miss Jennie"

Matt, Emily & Ryleigh

Seriously, my friends make THE cutest kids.  I know, you're probably thinking, "Well, of course she's biased."  I don't think I am.  The proof is in the pudding, people!

This shoot was meant to be only of Ryleigh, but I was able to talk Mom & Dad into joining in.  You see, Emily "didn't have make-up on and her hair wasn't done."  Matt "needed a hair cut and was just wearing a t-shirt."  Here's the deal:  Not only are they going to be glad they jumped in these pictures right now, but Ryleigh is the one who will really treasure these.

Also?  I actually super love their laid-back, "undone" style; much more natural.

Her expressions.  I just can't deal!

I can't wait to see Ryleigh in another six months, when she'll be even MORE full of personality, I'm guessing!

Thanks, Matt & Em!

Adam, Myra, Jack & Baby Girl

Thursday, January 9, 2014

Adam & Myra are a hard couple to forget.  I was incredibly lucky enough to be chosen as their wedding photographer a little over two years ago.  You might remember this:

As magical as their wedding was, what's even better is they have now begun their family, first with little Jack, and now they're awaiting their [sure to be beautiful] Baby Girl.

For the most part, I, pretty much, forced them into this session.  (What can I say?  They really are such an awesome family!)  Mama Myra had adorable visions of Little Jack snuggling up on her belly, but let's face it, and as I've said before, the best laid plans often go astray.  Jack was a tired little boy upon his arrival and promptly fell asleep:

This gave Mama &amp; I plenty of time to photograph her alone.  And you know what she said?  She's not photogenic.  Let's just take a 'lil look-see and I'll let you form your own opinions on THAT:

Then we brought Adam, Baby Daddy, and one of my oldest friends, into the photos and, well, these ought to speak for themselves.  Enjoy!

Gosh, it's really too bad they take such *terrible* photos!  ;)

Congratulations, Adam & Myra (and Jack)!  May you continued to be blessed.

Cheers and lots 'o love,
