Grace Marie, Grace Marie…what a busy bee you are! :D Gracie was my Cinderella and what a curious little girl she is! Half the pictures I got were of her looking around or running to investigate something, like the whereabouts of the wild bunny that she and I spent a good 15 minutes trying to catch in the beginning. BUT the other half of the pictures I got were gold! I love her stare with those deep eyes of her’s and I absolutely adore her giggling! She, on the other hand, loved the dress and gloves and thanked me many times for her “new pretty dress and new gloves”. After trying to explain to her they were just rentals I finally just nodded and said, “You’re welcome sweetie.” Thankfully she forgot all about the dress when I promised her ice cream after the pictures were over! haha

And just a few for Melinda. Thanks for letting me have her for the whole afternoon! :D

This is a record for the fastest sneak peek I’ve done! I came home and pulled all the pictures from their session, backed them up, opened up 2 or 3 to get a feel of the editing I was going to do…all pretty routine. I edited 2 and then a few more and then a few more and before I knew it the clock read 3am!! Ack! I just got carried away with this photogenic family! :D
I was really excited to get with this family for 2 reasons. 1st of all, I was thrilled to hear that they had a 7 and 9 year old! Yay for kids being old enough to 100% understand what I’m telling them! haha The other reason I was excited was because right off the bat Shanell requested something urban, which I don’t get to do very often. All of them were so great and easy to work with plus I absolutely LOVED that  they were always giggling or teasing each other because their smiles were so genuine! And can I just mention how polite these kids are? We were getting ready to pack up and leave when their daughter came up and thanked me for coming and taking their pictures! Aww…Anyways, enough talking! You came to see pictures! I hope you love them as much as I do!

Shanell & Tyler, I had such a blast with your family! I loved that you wanted to do something different! I think your cute family fits perfectly with this area!!

I’ve been looking forward to this one for months! Not just because they’re such a cute family but because they won this session at the silent auction for my cousin who was fighting leukemia!! Ever since the auction I’ve been curious about the family that won it but I didn’t hear from them right away. Then I had knee surgery and I was hoping and praying that they wouldn’t call before my knee was healed up so I wouldn’t disappoint them. It all worked out for the best because my knee is better, the leaves were just turning that gorgeous yellow, we had perfect weather and their baby girl Hallie ( I hope I spelled her name right Danielle!) is just about to turn one so we were able to get a few pictures of just her to mark her upcoming big day!

Danielle totally made my day with all the props and outfit changes she brought but to add a cherry on top they brought their family dog to be a few pictures too! LOVED it! So to the future clients you should bring your pets! Except snakes…I don’t handle anything without legs, it’s unnatural! :D Steve and Danielle’s little girl could melt anyone with those big blue eyes of hers and that sunny smile that was out the play almost the entire time, that’s a feat for a one year old! :) I had such an easy and beautiful session with them, I’m so excited for them to see the pictures!

Steve & Danielle, You guys were absolutely wonderful!!
