I met Paisley when she was about three weeks old. She is just a little peanut at about 7lbs and once she fell fast asleep curled up into the cutest photos.

It is always fun to photograph people that feel comfortable with you. Who better than family for that?! This is my uncle and his family along with his mother-in-law Rose. The kids stopped texting and video gaming for an hour or so to get some shots with their parents and grandma. I hope my boys let me do a family photo when they are teenagers!!
Every Christmas the White family have all the cousins take a big photo for their grandparents. This year was a wintery wonderland photo. There wasn't any snow on the ground but it was plenty cold outside. We got a few shots outside before we went in and warmed up. Luckily there was a beautiful stone wall next to a window that we got to take advantage of!
These two boys wanted to get all the good photos out of the way and get to having some fun. They specifically requested me to photograph them having a leaf fight and wrestling. It was funny but we had to make a compromise. I told them that we had to get some smiles in before all the fun. Once we were finished up they were only worried if I got any good ones of them playing!!

Sometimes we dress our little ones in fancy clothes and get special hair cuts for photo day. We tell them to not play in dirt to keep their face clean and to not make that silly face.
I say play in dirt and make that silly face. I think shaggy hair looks adorable and no clothes is better than fancy ones. Often my favorite photos are when I am not trying to get the perfect photo. Tonight I was dressing my littlest for bed and put some warm socks under his pajamas since it is going to get a little chilly here in the midwest. I looked down and saw the cutest, chubbiest little legs I have ever seen.
Simple is best. Simple is usually what is real.

I was lucky to be asked to do photos of a friend and her growing belly. She is 29 weeks and is glowing and so excited. We were able to capture some photos that will help them remember this time that is so exciting but is gone so quickly.
This was my first maternity shoot and I am completely in love. It was so fun to work with Emily and Ben. I absolutely can not wait until I get to do more belly bump photos. Being around a happy, pregnant lady made me miss being pregnant myself. If I took belly photos everyday I would probably try to talk my own husband into a third little one!

I sat on a blanket with my camera in a yard covered with golden leaves yesterday watching kids just being kids.
There was playing in the leaves
Bright colored chew toys
A little bit of pouting
Roaring like a dinosaur
Being an artist
Falling down with a smile
Toting around the necessities
Eating leaves before mom sees..
Talking to your best friend on the phone, kind of..
Watching the world while standing on your head
Laying back and watching leaves fall to the ground
and enjoying the breeze
Have you acted like a kid lately?
It is so much fun to watch kids be kids and get to see it all over again in photos. Here are some more of my favorites from my day.
These eyes could brighten anyone's day
