Sweet Pea "A" {Cary Newborn Photography}

What a sweet pea this little one is. Here are a few of my favorites. The first is some new props that I've acquired recently.   Love that crate from Anthropologie!  The second is a new twist on my very popular towel shot. For the next newborn I photograph, I'll have to hunt for a pea to layer between the towels. Who wants to be the next newborn session? :)

Love this little lady {Chicago Kids Photography}

She was smart enough to know that the purple belt that went with her dress was not the "karate belt" I tried to sell it as. She loves to pose, in a very princess and dramatic almost disco kind of way. And she was a trooper when her boots kept getting stuck in the tree, and as she fell forward, I rescued her from falling on the ground. And she loves suckers that turn into gum (aka blow pops). She's only 2 days older than my son, and her mom and I compared back-pain and other pregnancy related grievances before they were born. And many years before that we shared boyfriend-related grievances. Thankfully, we're not married to those same silly college boys. We found better ones to marry. Time sure flies, but I do think that things keep getting better.

Last Bit of Summer {Chicago Kids Photographer}

It's kind of funny, because this session was two weeks ago, and we were joking that we were "faking" summer. These adorable little girls were bundled up in coats when the weren't in front of my lens. But, after last weekend, you would think that summer is still here. We always get that last warm weekend in October.

It was a real treat to photograph these girls. They are the nicest girls, and I had fun playing "gimme five" in between takes. They were troopers in the cold, and are just good kids. Sweet, kind, respectful, loving. A real joy. And it was a treat to work at this location. I love water and beaches.  And it was even prettier as the sun was setting.   I think I'm going to have to take my own kids here for a session next summer.

Here are a few of my favorites.

Brett - Class of 2011 Cary-Grove {Cary Senior Photographer}

Here's Brett.  He was a natural in front of the camera, and was super fun to hang with.  Here are a couple of my favorites.  There were many favorites, but I can't make this blog all about him.    So, I had to pick just two. I love the one on that white wall with his killer eyes.     I'll be posting more on facebook soon, so be sure to check out that page and become a fan.  Link is here.
