Oh my, little Audrey was so happy and the perfect little model.  Just a 10-month-old but I think she has already got "it".  I didn't even have to pull out any puppets, bunny ears, singing, etc.  We only needed smiles.  Then she would mix it up with some adorable serious faces.  And all this during a mini session.  She was so much fun to photograph! :)

Another mini session.  Another sweet set of sisters.  Another baby who just totally went with the flow.  Another 2 year old who was so funny.  Some of the family shots from this session are my favorites, but we'll keep those secret until holiday cards go out.  But I couldn't wait to share a few of these pretty girls...

Finally, finally, finally I've taken photos to show some samples of the albums.  I love these albums and, if given the chance to see them (especially in person), I know you would love them too.  Think what it would be like 6 months, 2 years, 5 years, 10 years, 20 years from now to have something like this with your family photos.

Charlotte and Susanna (and their parents) were my first mini session of the holiday season.  They are some of my favorite clients and I love seeing Charlotte (she totally makes me laugh).  I won't lie, it was a high energy morning.  Four 2-year-olds (plus their siblings) within 4 hours is... well... a lot of 2-year-olds. :)  It was a fun start to a fun morning.  A few from our session...

I've said it before, but it really, really is so cool that I get to do something I love and that gives me the opportunity to meet such awesome kids and families.  If these boys are ever looking for a sister I'd definitely throw my application in the ring! :)  Not only are they cute and handsome, but they seem like such nice, kind, fun, smart boys.  And the littlest guy... he was cracking me up because every time I put the camera up he was ready -- all that happy in such a little package -- I wanted to sneak him in my camera bag and take him home.  And wait until you see the whole family -- they are so photogenic and sweet together (but you'll have to wait until after the holidays to see those).  For now, the boys...
