A heartfelt thank you

to the secret Santa who left the gift bag on my doorstep in the wee hours of Christmas morning.  Your thoughtfulness and generosity brought tears to my eyes and I wish I could thank you in person.  I can only hope that you see this or my Facebook post and know how greatly appreciated it is to my family.  Many heartfelt thank you's to you from me and my family, and Merry Christmas!

Model Train Exhibit

Last week the girls and I went to Bandana Square to see the Night Trains model train exhibit.  All of the tiny little to-scale pieces were absolutely amazing!  The overhead lights in the room were turned down so that the city was lit up by its own lights.  Everywhere you looked there was something else to see - even in the windows of the buildings!  Very cool!

Baby V

This sweet little baby boy turned 2 weeks old yesterday and I spent a wonderful morning today photographing him and his family.  And although his big brother didn't have much interest in being photographed (nor did he want to share his puffs with me either)  :)) we did finally manage to get a couple with both boys together too!  Baby V is modeling some of my own crocheted hats that I've recently finished.  After the holidays they will be going up for sale in my Etsy store, along with a few other designs in various sizes.  Christmas may be over, but it's still cold outside!

Enjoy your sneak peek, G Family!

The Twins

Nine months ago I photographed these twins as newborns, and now look how big they are!  It was fun to see how much they've grown, and they each have their own unique personality now.  Miss H was constantly on the move, while Mr B was content to just sit and observe us.  They were both super happy babies tho, and it was easy to get smiles and giggles out of both of them!

"...um, brother?  Weren't we supposed to save these cookies for Santa?"

6 month Miss K

It seems like I was just taking little Miss K's three month photos, and here she's already six months old now!  This was a fun session with the holiday props and you can see I had a lot of favorites!  Although she was rather serious and quiet in the beginning, we got a bunch of big smiles and giggles in the middle thanks to her daddy's silliness before she dozed off dreaming of Santa.

S Family

It was rather foggy and chilly this morning when I got together with this family for a quick outdoor session, but they were all really great sports about it, even when I asked them to sit on the cold ground!  And despite it being foggy and cold, we got some fun shots.  Thanks guys!
