last shoot

this was my last shoot of the holiday season, and i owe a mama a sneak peek!

these pretty girls recently moved to naples and upon photographing them, we found out we have lots of mutual friends here...small town.

and since finding out we're having a girl, sister shoots just get me.

happy holidays!

more from the working corner

i've been able to get so much done these last couple days and am finally seeing some major light at the end of the maybe friday, it will be finished for the most part.

so, i'm working late from my little desk in the working corner listening to this song over and over, drinking sugarless carbonated somethin'-or-other, feeling the baby kick like mad...or maybe dancing to this song. yes, i think she's a dancer.

..and a few more to share.

...and while i've ended most of my shoots and have lots of work to do, i'll hopefully soon post my favorites from this season.

speaking of favorites...a few more of baby veda...

...and some images i am so happy with after spending an evening with my friends.

lainey was in heaven to be spending time with her girlfriends and it was obvious she felt very big indeed hangin' with the big girls.

the clissolds...
(oh, amy you are beautiful...and so is your family)

"our" baylee...

and sammy mcintosh...

man, my friends make some pretty kids.

...feeling tired but totally blessed to be able to do this job...especially as the year comes to a close and i look back at all the fantastic people i've met and the meaningful relationships i've formed through doing this.

more on that later.

four lovely kids

getting a decent photo of four children first grade and under...on their first day of the end of the day...following hours in the pool and hence extreme exhaustion...well, it ain't easy.

enter evidence a: failed attempts. failed...but funny.

so, when you do find this beautiful shot with these four beautiful children...well, then you do the happy dance.

enter evidence b: hello, gorgeous children.

i have lots of photos to go through from this family's shoot, but i must say i had fun and embraced the challenge of photographing four tired, vacationed little munchkins who performed just beautifully for me.

thank you audrey, jesse, cole & beckham.

i just barely started editing this session, and these were the first three i picked.

if the first three look like this, i can't wait to get to the rest.

baby veda, you are divine.

my friends.

it was a wham-bam-thank-you-mam kind of photo shoot, but you would have never known it. three families in one hour. but the cool thing is...these people are my friends. i am lucky to know and love each of these families. photographing them tonight was one thing...but the icing on the cake was sitting with them later, downtown...outside on a street full of christmas lights. and we ate with our littles sandwiched between us. it was delicious.

my friends...joe & steph, sam & ryan and jon & suzanne...and their beautiful littles.

...and speaking of beautiful littles...

my little tagged along tonight...quiet as ever, shooting with me, patiently watching on and completely enjoyable at dinner. she helped me love on sweet emery baby and can i just say, she's gonna make one heck of a sister.

baby shots

i've got lots of images to post, but i'm out the door and promised this family i'd have some up of their beautiful little granddaughter.

i don't think i've ever seen eyebrows or eyelashes this distinct on one so little...
and she didn't make a peep the entire shoot. and if you whistled...she was all smiles.

sweet kileigh.

who sat in the rocking chair that belonged to her grandpa when he was little...

...and went fishin' by the lake with her daddy.

and precious baby jack came back this week for some santa babe shots.
broke two lollipops in the process, but it was worth it.

in heaven with all these babies.
they make me so happy!
