Guess who had their very own “I’m (almost) 4 Now” Photo Shoot today? 🙂 I’m sooooooo excited to post these pictures of my big girl…but for now, a quick sneak peek in the photo frame at the top of the blog. Stay tuned, more to come!
So, the email I got from this mom said that she and her family hadn’t had a family photo taken since her son was 18 months old. It was time! 🙂 I loved this family! We had a great time at the park near their house. They were super easy to work with, fun, and the kids were AWESOME!
And for those awesome kidders, I’ll start with this one, my favorite! Thanks for being so cute, you two!
These two are pretty cute too! And fellow teachers are always a delight to chat with!
Or maybe this one is my favorite?
Oh! And I loooooove the one of big brother in the top right! This little guy was great, and I hear he’s hoping we’ll use his name for our little boy. 🙂
And beautiful little sister. She was so excited to get her pictures on the swing. What a doll!
Thanks guys, I had a great time with your family! Let’s not wait so long for the next family picture, okay? 🙂
First, I have to thank the Big Red Couch family for the next 2 posts! They sent these next two adorable families to me and, for my little biz, word of mouth is everything! So, thanks guys!! 🙂
This sweet family had to reschedule once due to our lovely Ohio weather, but thankfully, the day of their shoot was great! I had a nice time with these four. Their love and closeness to each other was so obvious, mom and dad were relaxed and so easy to photograph, and the kids! Well, the pictures will speak for themselves….A.DOR.A.BLE!
I loved that this family was up for casual, natural photographs…totally my style! And they picked an awesome location, Sippo Lake Park.
Little sister…The beauty of doing this kind of low-stress shoot is that the kids are comfortable and natural. The best shots of little “E” were taken in the comfort and safety of her Mama’s arms. Adorable.
Big brother, “J”. I know! Those eyes!!! That hair!! He was a great little guy too, very personable and polite! 🙂
I loved watching how little sister already looks up to her big brother. She watched him so carefully, it was dear.
Such a sweet couple! Wasn’t it great guys, being all alone in the woods? It was so quiet and peaceful, like you were the only two people in the whole world!?
Haha! Any parent of little ones knows what a laugh that is! This is what was really happening during this picture. 🙂
Thanks so much! I had a great time hanging out with your delightful family!
Have a good weekend, all! Check back soon for another wonderful family photo session.
Halloween was SO fun this year! The girls were way into pumpkin carving and trick-or-treating. And selfishly, we just LOVE getting to do all of the fun Halloweeny stuff we did as kids, all over again!
So, here we go…up first, pumpkin carving!
Every year, Cate’s favorite part is putting the pieces back in the pumpkin. Although this year she did actually touch all of the “squishy stuff” in the pumpkin….Anna, not so much. 🙂
Up next, trick-or-treating, of course! Cate was a “witch” and Anna was a “pumpkin”. As usual, they decided on their costumes a while ago and never wavered. Cate loved passing out candy! She wanted “wild witch hair”, so I did a trick that my mom did with my hair when I was little…lots of little braids on wet hair, let dry, and wiiiiiild hair! (We used to call it Stevie Nicks hair).
Our sweet little pumpkin.
I did not take into account my big girl’s slight fear of the wind (for real) with this costume. It took just one time for the wind to threaten to blow her witch hat up into the air before she decided she’d “better not wear that hat!”. 🙂
The girls had so much fun trick-or-treating with cousins Lily the Cowgirl and Charlie the Lion!
Nana and Papa had fun with all of the kids too!
That pumpkin bucket is tooooootally hiding my big belly, right?
Hope you had a Happy Halloween too!!
Within the past two weeks, both Corey and I had the opportunity to hang out in Cate’s class for the morning. It was wonderful! I brought my camera to take pictures for Cate’s teacher, and Corey helped the class stuff a scarecrow.
We were both so pleased to see how respectful the teachers are and how much they care for each of the children. We are so thankful to be sending our big girl to a school who’s values and beliefs are so very in tune with our own.
Love this one! It was “picture day” so the kids were extra spiffy.
Cate and her buddies.
Cate, so proud to be the “5 Minutes Left To Play” girl.
She was also the weather person.
Show and Tell. She and her teacher were looking in her bag for her show-and-tell item, but then Cate said, “I brought my mommy!”
My baby is one of the tallest kids in class. 🙂
Corey and I both had so much fun, but Cate is really the one who is THRILLED to go to school each day. She’s already learned so much…making friends, sharing, and INDEPENDENCE! We’re super proud of her.
