I love parent/child images that really show some LOVE, some emotion, some connection. I love mama's who want to be captured lovin' on their babies. I have spent far too many years avoiding being in front of the camera and my kids will one day wonder where the heck I was. Take some photos of yourself with your kids. Beg someone else to snap a few. Go to a professional photographer and have some created. . . whatever method, just do it! Your kids will not care that your hair wasn't the way you love it or that you had twenty pounds to lose, they will just see the love you share.
All of that said, I was seriously delighted when Charlie's mama agreed to jump in for a few images of the two of them. K is gorgeous and has the same amazing smile as Charlie. The two of them have a beautiful connection that was evident immediately! I LOVED watching them play and love each other. Here's just one little peek for K! I hope you love it, I really do. And I'm going to make myself not share anymore for a while, I want K to have some surprises when her images are all ready, lol! Which HOPEFULLY will be mid week next week! I will have some more fabulous mama/kiddo images coming soon though. Of another gorgeous mama and her babies! Stay tuned!

the coolest little dude, Charlie.

ok seriously, I feel so lucky. Photography is such a joy for me, just being able to create photographs is a treat. But add to that, the amazing people I get to meet because of it and wow. I am just so lucky. Really blessed is a much better word.

I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Charlie and his beautiful mom, Krissy, a few weeks ago and boy did I have fun! Charlie sang, he danced, he jumped and ran, he LAUGHED and made me laugh. He was a total doll. Beautiful, soulful eyes and amazing smile. I wanted to put him in my pocket and bring him home with me! I will be posting some more images of him in the coming days because I just love him, lol!! I sincerely hope Krissy enjoys these. And I hope you can all see through these photographs just how much fun we had that beautiful, sunny afternoon.

Krissy and Charlie, thank you for coming out to the shoot. I am a better person for having spent an afternoon with you both. I'll be back with more in a couple of days!

That's how I feel lately, lol! Way behind with my online friends-I'm so sorry I've neglected you guys!! I'm hoping to get back to my old groove soon. After traveling for nine days straight, I just have lots of catching up to do!

I met this little cutie over the weekend at the "See the Light" workshop, put together by the ohsoamazing Marmalade Photography. I feel like my business/marketing has had this great shot in the arm! I have so many wonderful new ideas to implement, changes to make! I can't wait!For my photography friends, if you're looking for a business/marketing/shooting boost, check her out! I'm so glad I went!! I have so much more to share and to tell you guys! And just wait for Charlie, omgosh, I fell in love with that little man! He'll be making his blog debut soon!

Thanks to my friends who asked me where the heck I've been, lol. And apologies to my blog who is feeling neglected. I'll try to do better!
