Bloomin'

I think they choose a pretty crumby day to show their heads since it snowed/hailed today. Even though I don't have any in my own yard, tulips are so pretty and happen to be one of my favorite flowers!

A rare peak at me IN FRONT of the camera!

She kept trying to look at this hat but quickly realized if she did, she would tip over. So cute!

She couldn't get enough of her sister's doll.

Mine One Monday {M.O.M.}

While waiting for a session today I snapped a few of the kids. I was using a lens that haven't experimented with for a while. It was fun.

Not quite Sitting {M.O.M}

Here are two more from the other day. She is not quite sitting up but she is working on it.

Here is one of "J". He just gets giddy when he gets his picture taken. When he saw this, he put his hand over his mouth and just giggled. What a funny kid.

Screaming Spring

I am glad this family asked me to take their portraits. It was a beautiful day and it is always fun to watch families interact. I thought this one was really fun even though it is more of an out take. They are beautiful and doesn't this just scream spring! Thanks "B" family!

She's THREE

I guess these are her official 3-year old pictures. I had it in my head that she needed a beautiful dress so somehow I found myself at the mall. That could be a blog post in and of itself. I'll give you a glimsp of how it went. When I told her what we were looking for she said, "I don't need a new dress mom, I already have one." I should have just said yes and left. I did find a dress I loved and was willing to buy and when I showed it to her she refused to entertain it because it wasn't pink. So, she got to wear this adorable shirt and jeans for her special pictures.

By the time I got to my location, the only lighting option I really had was back-lighting. I love that the grass and flowers are peaking out everywhere. Spring is so close, I can almost smell it! :)

For you lphotogs who care, I was shooting with my 85mm and tried to stay above f/2.8 because apparently my hands are not steady and practiced enough to go lower. :)

I love this kid

Parenting is hard and frequently overwhelming. I think I am usually too hard on him. As he goes out the door every morning, I pray he has the self-confidence to stand up for and believe in himself. I hope I have taught him the right so he knows how to choose. It can sometimes be stressful, but I am so glad he came to our home. He is a special kid and seems to be very respectful of which I am grateful.
