"A" Family Photo Shoot

Saturday morning I had the pleasure of doing a photo shoot for the "A" Family. This photo shoot was especially special to me because the 'mommy' of this family is one of the kiddos in a family I used to babysit when I was a teenager! (I just love that family!) So here is Amy, along with her hubby Mike, and their boys Charlie and Ben, bright and early Saturday morning.
Baby Ben is such a little cutie!
Charlie is the adorable big brother!
Mike & Amy (aka Daddy and Mommy!) I really like this picture!
The whole gang toward the end of the photo shoot. It was heatin' up outside, but they all look great!
Sweet shot of the two brothers. This is just so precious!
I think Charlie looks a wee bit ornery in this picture! :o)
"Okay, I'm thinking of a word that starts with 'n' and ends with 'ap'!" I love the cute way he sucks his two little fingers!
He's so cute, you just want to hug him!
The whole gang...
Smiley Baby Ben on his mommy's lap...
Charlie getting some hugs from his daddy...
A black and white photo of the whole family...
Cute couple!
Here are the boys on the "Nebraska" side of the blanket for Daddy. You'll notice in the first picture of Ben, he's on the "Mizzou" side of the blanket for Mommy! :o)
You know how I love those sweet little baby toes!
Smiley Charlie...
I always like to get a 'real life' picture...
Look at those gorgeous eyes!
I LOVE this picture! I have a feeling it really captures his personality!
This one is so sweet...
Boys and their daddies have so much fun together!
Charlie...
Baby Ben...
With their hands full, off they go!
It was wonderful to see you and to meet your family. I will finish editing your photos in the next day or two, then I'll put your portrait cd in the mail by the end of the week. Thanks so much, Mike and Amy, for trusting your family to my lens. It was a joy and a pleasure!

"S" Family Photo Shoot

This week I had the pleasure of doing a photo shoot for the "S" Family. Dad (Scott), Mom (Tonia), big brother (Shawn-age 14), sister (Katie-age 3), and little brother (Caleb-21 months). What a good looking family!
Miss Katie is quite a cutie, and told me that she likes to have her picture taken! (You know I loved that!)
Isn't Caleb just adorable?? Love those baby chubs on his sweet little cheeks!
I was so glad that Shawn was willing to let me take a few pictures of him, too! I would say, "What a handsome young man!", but I wouldn't want to embarrass him! :o)
Scott and Tonia are the busy daddy and mommy!
Little Miss Photogenic!
Such a serious expression, and I love the slobber bobber on his chin!
And THIS is how we convinced the 21 month old to stay in place for a picture...put him next to the cool door and let him stand up! Whatever it takes to capture such a sweet family!
Love love love this shot!
I do believe I see just a bit of an attitude here!
Cutie bug on the move...
Such a sweet picture of Katie and Caleb...
A family shot in black and white...
Sweet sister...
Katie and her mommy...
Sweet little man...
Isn't this picture just so cute?? I love the interaction!
Katie...
Love the grins and eye contact in this picture of Caleb and his daddy!
Another sweet group shot...
I just love 3 year olds!
Oh my goodness...is this so sweet or what???
Cute big brother, Shawn...
Tonia and Scott...
One more group shot. (These were each a little different and I couldn't decide which one I liked the best!)
Adorable profile!
Love those deep thinking eyes!
And off they go to enjoy their summer! (I asked Shawn, "Would you rather hold your dad's hand or Tonia's hand?" He said, "I don't care; either one would be equally as awkward!" I had to laugh! :o)
Thanks so much, Scott and Tonia, for trusting your family to my lens. I really enjoyed my time with your family! I will finish editing your photos and have your portrait cd ready for you next week!
