White Christmas

Here are a few photos from a seasonal shoot last week.  You may remember the White family from an earlier summer session I did.  These four are super sweet and have such cute little personalities.  Little Matthew was the toughest nut to crack but we managed to get some smiles out of him after a few squeezes from me and a few raspberry kisses!! We even managed to get mom and dad in on the action!!  Check out this White Christmas!!

Michelle and family

It was another cold but lovely fall day last Sunday.  I met my good friend Michelle and her family out at Manuel's river for some family photos.  With my new lens in tow I was super excited to get a new perspective at the river and I had lots of great opportunity to do just that with with these three energetic and rascally kiddos!  They had me scaling mountains and stumbling in rivers!  But you can't keep a good girl down!!  These days, this is how I get my exercise and I can leave your their number at the end so you too can avail of their personal training services...lol!!!  The icing on the cake was Bethany calling me Nette!!  Too freakin' cool!! 

  I know I've mentioned before that I love meeting new people and reconnecting with old friends.  But I am so loving this new found passion.  Photography is a great outlet for me to do something that's just for me!  How often can we say, we love what we do?  Don't get me wrong, it's a constant state of learning but it's something I totally love learning about.  When something comes along that you enjoy and have passion for you owe it to yourself to at least give it a try.  Take a chance and don't grow old saying I wish I was younger, I wish I had more time, I should have...

Take the time to enjoy that something you love now!!

The Burtons

I am sure those of you who know Lynn well, know how sweet she is and I soon discovered, shortly after meeting her, how simply cracked she is!!!  Well, this lady is so full of fun and sun that she made the day a little brighter on our cold November 11th session.  Of course, she had an entourage with her-Her hubby Ed, beautiful daughter Candice, a handsome dude by the name of Tanner, who just loved to smile ;) and his parents.  I had a great time with this family as we hung out at Bowring Park for the afternoon.  Check out some of the fun we had!!

Amanda's darlings

The air was near frosty as I met up with Amanda and her little peeps at Bowring Park!  With Lily, Mya and Tyler in tow we headed toward the playground to try and warm up!! 

Children make the best of every weather situation and they ran and climbed and kept warm.  Little Mya ran (you couldn't stop her) and had a swing.  She looked terrified in the swing as you will see in the upcoming photo but she kept saying "weeeeee!!!".  So darn cute!!  And what's a photo shoot without the odd bribe...lol.  Lily wasn't really in the mood for photos but was convinced by her doting and wonderful aunt to smile for the camera!  Then we have Tyler and his Mom Renee, great friends of Amanda's.  After just meeting Tyler you can tell he has that natural leadership ability and was a great caregiver.  He helped the girls when they needed and showed such gentleness that is not expected of a boy his age.  Such a testament to his mom Renee! 

We did get to shed the warm clothes a little later as the sun came out to tease us with a touch of heat.  So here is Amanda and her sweet little gang!!
