Easy pesy 1 2 3asy

Shooting this adorable baby girl was so easy. The lighting was perfect and she LOVED the camera. She would just stare at it. There were lots of belly kisses to get some smiles out of her because she took her session pretty seriously :)
She had such great hair we had fun putting all sorts of accessories in it
Purple is defiantly her color, it looks amazing with her dark hair
Her mom looked AMAZING for just having a baby.
I love this little tiny smile. Its as if she was saying "I guess I'll give you something"
Thank you for the super fun and oh so easy photo shoot ;)

Pay Back Photographer Style

Sunday morning was awesome. It was my turn to repay Elizabeth for our fabulous family pictures. I had so much fun taking them! We were worried at first because it was raining pretty hard. Luckily I thought of a place by our house that has a cool bike/ running trail that goes through a tunnel I thought would make a urban chic background.
I know I am bias because I took them and Elizabeth is one of my closest friends, but HELLO how cute are they!
Elizabeth did such a good job of putting together such awesome outfits. She and Bandon looked like they should be in a clothing add:
Gwyneth was so adorable! I felt awful making her be out in the cold since she had been so sick earlier in the weekend... its all for the pictures though right?
Poor Atticus was so cold. Elizabeth was so prepared with hand warmers and everything, it was just so cold. What a trooper
Elizabeth and Brandon pretended to beat each other up to coax out these cute smiles, you gotta do what you gotta do!
I hope you like them as much as I do Elizabeth! What do you think same deal in two years?

Smilie McGee

This little fellow was an absolute dream to shoot! He was smiley and giggle the whole time. I have been doing so many under five month shoots that I forgot what a snap it is to get adorable pictures of seven month olds.
Anyway we would place him he was grinning away for his momma
who (like most moms) suffered from the occasional "attack of the face" (I LOVE when Abby does this to me... it makes me feel so loved).
It was great working with such a happy camper
I had to post process these SOOOO fast since in about an hour the movers come to take my computer away ahhhhhhhh! What will I do with out my MAC for four weeks! I'll tell you what, my pictures are not going to look like this:
Next time I see you it may be from East TImor. As Kathleen Kelly would say "Good night dear void"

LIttle Henry

This little guy was just five days old when I got to take some pictures of him. No matter how many newborn sessions I do I am always blown away at how tiny they are!
After his Mom got him to sleep he was good and zonked for the duration.
I almost felt bad finish and having to get him all dressed again :) Although everyone was pretty happy that we could turn the heat off haaa!

What happens when you are my friend

Your kids become subjects at the drop of the hat. We took these off the cuff today before heading to Monkey Business.
Gotta love the hat!
Quick outfit change...
I taught Cady how to make a pettiskirt and finished this red one for Quinn. I seriously have NO idea how I made so many of these this last summer!
Jarrett was doing these cute little sneaky peaks over the couch so I had to catch one

Birdie Girl

I had so much fun shooting this little doll. Her parents call her Birdie, how cute is that! I knew it was going to be a fabulous shoot the moment I walked into their home and wished I could call it my own! McCall was a dream to work with and had me laughing the whole time. Add in the fact that Birdie was a smiley happy girl and tah-dah dream shoot!
Birdies nursery was so serene I loved it! We had to get a shot with her cute mirror. Luckily she looked at me just when I took it!
Plus I kept telling them that good looking people make my job soooo easy!
I loved their wedding rings so I had to get one with Birdie sporting their bling.
Again I have been having the hardest time choosing my favorites between black and white and color. Well at least with my philosophy my clients don't have to choose and get all of them :)
Thank you thank you thank you for such a fun shoot!

The power of a red head

This little man was so adorable! He was very serious and very interested in everything around him. He had the cutest little dimple, couple that with his red hair and you get stinkin adorable! I had so much fun being crazy with his mom trying to get him to smile. If someone had video taped us it would have been pretty fun to watch!
I made that bow tie... I think I am going to make a bunch more now that I realize how easy it is!
Look at those blue eyes! I just love red hair with blue eyes. I totally thought with Chris's red beard and my Irish roots we would get a red head-- no such luck yet :)
Doesn't it look like he is puckering for a kiss?
The tie I got for our Family pictures for Sam. Isn't it adorable! It is from Matilda and Me on Etsy
He is just learning to sit up so there was actually an arm in this picture but I photoshoped it out-- woo hoo for photoshop! I had to include this last one because it is HILARIOUS! When you catch such silly faces... he is saying ughhhh how much longer do I have to be cute?

{Virginia Children's Photographer} Work it girl!

I really love my job. I get paid to take pictures of adorable children and get to meet the most wonderful people in the process. This weekend I meet McKenzie and Ali. Oh my goodness were they ever adorable. I had so much fun with their mom and Grandma there to help. This shoot was complete with out fit change which I LOVE.
We got some great princess shots of them kissing a frog but this adorable candid came after, is McKenzie imparting some wisdom to her younger sister?
McKenzie was a dream to work with. She gave me serious, she gave me big huge goofy smile, she was wonderful
Ali did wonderfully once I figured out that she didn't want to just sit there and smile she wanted to WORK it! She wanted hip popped attitude shots (Plenty of those in the next post)
I am going to leave their rockin' "urban" outfits for the next post but here is a sneak peak:

{Virginia Infant Photography} Wadin' through it

I had the pleasure of taking pictures of cute little Mr. Wade. He was SOOOOOO good! He was happy the whole time and LOVED the bean bag. The second we would lay him on it he went all serene :) Here are some sneak peaks for his wonderful Mom who I loved working with.
or maybe black and white
Lovin his BLUE eyes
Wade's mom had the most gorgeous furniture. I wanted to pose him on all of it :) If I remember correctly her grandmother painted this beautiful blue hutch/side table
The first shot of the day:
Wade's Mom is like me and LOVES black and white so of course I had to turn in BW just to see... pretty sure I love it!
There are so many cute ones.., I will probably have to do another sneak peak!
