Ava was so much fun this year! She took so much pride in the gifts she gave people and she was just as excited as they were when they opened them up. It was fun to watch. She has been watching me take photos and has been requesting a camera for some time, she was thrilled to get one of her own. She took over 100 photos!
She will have to start her own blog soon! I believe that at least 90 of the 100 photos are of her gifts. It was so cute, she would set up the shots carefully, the dolls had to be just right, Olivia even started to help. As you probably have seen in one of my other posts, Olivia loves rubber ducks! She was very happy to get a "GINORMOUS rubber duck" (Ava's description... which she got from the Will Ferrell movie "Elf") from her big sister for Christmas.
Olivia loves to play mommy to her dolls. I could have watched her all day as she set them up, spoke to them, and most importantly to her, ensured that all of them (Olivia included) had pacifiers.
After all of the gifts, food and company, our girls were overtired and full of sugar induced energy.... Ava was running circles around us (literally) and Olivia could not decide what she needed anymore, but it wasn't pants, she assured me of that!
What great memories we made! Christmas can sometimes become a whirlwind of gifts, company, and food. With all of the rush, I hope that all of you had time to soak up the ones that you love. God Bless you in the new year!

Now, meet Evan! He is such a sweet little guy and very laid back! You can tell that his parents and his brother just adore him!
It was so much fun to finally have a day that we could be outside for photos! We made use of a great park just outside of their back yard! It is somewhere that their family spends a lot of time. I am jealous that they have such a great place to play everyday!
I am so excited for Deborah and Tony to see these! I love Evan's smile, that soft baby hair, those two tiny teeth and they joy he puts on his mommy's face.
Elijah is so sincere... he LOVES his daddy...

Jack has the most beautiful blue eyes...
Jessica is a beautiful 3 year old. We got to spend a lot of time together... she shared her snow globe with me, we talked Christmas, played on horses, jumped on the bed...we had a great time!
It is so much fun to watch kids play. Jessica set up a delicious tea party for all of us and her favorite dolls as well.
This picture totally makes me laugh! Leave it to a three year old to delicately throw back a cup of tea! I am sure that she did not miss a drop!
Thank you for letting me come into your home and get to know your family! I had a great time!

Tonight Oliver (my nephew) and his parents came to visit us. Oliver's parents were the providers of the loud singing polar bear trio... this year they brought along an eight foot Frosty for our yard! I am wondering what our neighbors are thinking right now! The kids love it when they come to visit!
Isn't Oliver handsome?! Look at those cheeks... don't you just want to squeeze them! He is just the sweetest little boy! Oliver is 8 months old and very inquisitive... he loved the Christmas lights and even tried to eat a few of them! He is a motivated little guy... he is completely mobile, and will surely keep his parents busy for hummmm the next 17 years! I just love this little boy! How can you not fall in love with those blue eyes!
Thank you Kaia and Joe for coming to visit! I am so excited for you guys to have little (or not so little) Oliver in your lives. You are so blessed! Christmas will be so wonderful and fun for you this year!

I have known these boys since the day they were born. It is so much fun to watch them grow into their own personalities. Brydon (above) is the ham. He knows just what to say to get everyone laughing. Jake (below) is a tad more serious, but just can not help but laugh and thoroughly enjoy his brother's humor.
These two little boys are complete heart breakers.... even though we did talk a lot about boogers! It was a great afternoon and a privilege to take photos for the this family! Thank you Chris and Stace!

Adeline's parents completely adore her. It is so obvious that with their love this little girl is going to grow into an amazing person! It was such a pleasure to be in their home and shoot photos for them. They have not had photos taken of her before so I felt quite privileged to have the opportunity to capture the beauty of their little girl and the love they have for her!

If you guys are interested, I am planning on some short mini sessions to get some family shots for you. I am thinking approximately 30 minute sessions and I will give you a disc with approximately 10 shots for you to print as you wish. The cost will be $50! I am planning on doing this on location, possibly a local university campus. If you get a couple of your friends together and we can meet where you want and the price will remain $50... if there is at least two families. If you would like family shots in your own home or yard, the price will increase to $75.
The dates that I am tentatively looking at for this are Saturday November 17Th and Sunday December 2nd. Email email@example.com if you are interested in signing up for a time slot or if you just have questions.

I had a great time this afternoon doing a shoot for some close friends. We have so many leaves at my house that I convinced them to stay and play in them for their "mini" session. Their new little one is one of the most precious little things I have seen in some time! Here are a few shots from their session.
Little Zoey is so dang cute... it was hard to choose the pictures for you to see. She is so animated... her eyes tell such a story. What a cutie!
Of course Ethan took a little time out to jump in the leaves! He had a blast! Who wouldn't?
