I just love these images of my son's friends and their mom, such a photogenic family...

I just had the opportunity to do another newborn session, and photograph the big sister too. How cute are these kids?!

another new favorite photo of my son...

I couldn't wait until I finished editting the session, I had to post it now. Straight out of the camera, all I had to do was burn the background. Oh, it's so wonderful when he looks at me AND smiles.

and the rest of that gorgeous baby's family...

If you've been following me for any length of time, you'll notice that I've never shot a large group. But I'm always up for a new challenge & learning new facets of photography, so when my friend asked me to shoot the entire extended family, I jumped right in. And look, we even got her 2 year old to smile! (He was pretty mad that I lied to him about seeing construction vehicles in my camera lens if he looked hard enough.)

lookout, baby fever!

Also over Thanksgiving weekend, I had the privilege of seeing another friend from high school and meeting new members of her family. She just had the most precious baby girl, and I asked if I could photograph her. It was my first newborn session since my daughter went to be with Jesus, so I don't know what I was thinking, (other than "oh my gosh this baby is so gorgeous, I just have to photograph her!") but God gave me the strength to not only get through, but thouroughly enjoy the session. I almost cried happy tears as I picked her up to soothe & reposition her. This shoot was such a blessing for me. I hope you enjoy the photographs of this beautiful little girl as much as I enjoyed taking them.

One last outdoor shoot before it gets too cold...

Thanksgiving weekend I met up with a friend I haven't seen since high school to meet & photograph her family. My last outdoor photoshoot of the year. They were brave, because it was pretty cold! The girls were such good sports...we hiked the whole nature trail and stopped several times to ditch the coats for pictures.
