I have been photographing this little angel above since she was a tiny little baby.  Her parents were the first to trust in me to take her newborn, 3 month, 6, 9, 1 year and every special occasion photos!  I am so grateful that they have asked me and continue to use me for all of their special moments.  They are the most amazing people and I have known her mom for years.  She has become an even closer friend over the past few years and called me before she told some friends about the possibility of this announcement!  I was so excited for her and her family on the possibility of a new baby.  I didn’t even think about what she was asking me!  Of course like me, because we are very similar, and can’t keep secrets for long…..she said as soon as I get the confirmation from the doctor I want to document and announce this!  How cool and fun for me!  We talked and planned ideas and she right away, like she always does, got the cutest little shirt for Addy!  AW!!  Big sister!!!  Momma is doing great and due in the fall and even if Addy doesn’t understand quite yet, she will be so excited to have a little sister or brother!  I love the photos because although we planned what we wanted to do.. Addyson was her usual star self and made the pictures even more adorable!!  And then we had to do some cute Valentines and Easter photos of her for mom and dad!!

I love this little guy like he is my own! He is the sweetest, funniest, cutest little boy I know!!! I have known him since he was in the making and can’t believe is he gonna be 3! Side note he is taken lol!! By my 2 1/2 year old daughter!!! Hehehe!! So his mom and I planned a day just for him!! Take him down to the studio! Photograph his beautiful little face… write out his favorite things and have him pose with it… dress him in his Superman cape and mask and boots and underwear with a fan blowing his cape! I got him a little John Deere hat for his birthday because he loves his diggers and bobcats that his daddy uses!! So we get there and he’s excited!! I show him my studio and I start photographing him! After about 10 minutes his attention is not on the task!! What 3 year old wants to sit there and do what his mom and I are telling him to do!! The chalkboard…well that’s fun!! Even more fun for him to erase it over and over and want to chalk on it!! So funny!! We were trying so hard to just have him hold it and look at us! The one picture I did get that it wasn’t erased ended up being something I love! Candid and him looking down at it! I got some great shots of him laughing and making silly faces at me!! Its funny how you try so hard.. and I have to go back and remind myself that he’s 3! If I force him into doing something he doesn’t want to do… then it is no longer fun for him!! And besides some pics for mom, that’s what is all about!! After the day was over we were like well that didn’t go as planned… but as I look at the pictures more and more I love every single one of them more and more!!!! Each one shows exactly his personality!! Cute, funny, smart, and a little stinker!! And I love each picture and him so much!! So you will notice there are not any cape and Superman pics…. He wouldn’t put the cape on! We got him to somehow put the rainboots, socks and underwear on! While coaxing him into putting the cape on and showing him how cool the fan was going to be…he kicked his boots off, tore his socks off, and next thing we know… his underwear are off too!! I couldn’t take a picture because I was laughing soooo hard!!! Think we pushed it a little too far and he just didn’t want anything to do with it!! Gotta say that’s one photographic moment that’s going to go down in the books as the most entertaining of my career!!
