and Girl 2's turn...

Girl 2 wanted a turn to be Photographer too, so they reversed roles, however this time, "mom" (played by Girl 1) was rather bored, apparently, and just gave Girl 2, Photographer, free rein to do what she wanted in her session, ha ha!!  It was so much fun to watch both of them taking their turn at doing what I love doing!  :)

Girl 1, Photographer

After my mini sessions with Girl 1 and Girl 2, they decided they wanted to "open up" their own studio.  I love how much they've learned from watching what I do.  Girl 2 was the "mom" who brought her baby to the studio.  Girl 1, Photographer, chose a cute hat to match the baby's outfit, and then arranged the baby gently in a basket lined with a soft, fluffy blanket.  When she was ready, she removed the pacifier from the baby's mouth, (baby was a little fussy in the beginning) while "mom" stood behind the photographer and distracted the baby with an M&M to get her to smile.  (ok, so I don't use M&M's with babies to get them to smile, just so you know, but I have been known to get a smile or two out of a two year old with one!)  ;)  After trying a few different angles and shots, the photographer announced she had gotten enough photos and gave the baby back to "mom".  The last photo here is from Girl 1, Photographer's sneak peek!  :)

And then it was Girl 1's turn... I love this girl and her beautiful expressions too!  :)

A girl and her elephants

It's been awhile since I've done a mini session with Girl 1 and Girl 2, so while Girl 2 was busy playing with her elephant family, I picked up my camera and started clicking.  I love the concentration it takes to stack elephants, and the joy when she was done!

Boys times two

I had the great honor of photographing my lovely niece this morning.  Not only is she sweet, funny, and looks beautiful pregnant, she is also expecting twin boys!  The nursery is decorated in cute little monster decor, so the boys are already being affectionately nicknamed "little monsters".  :)  I can't wait to meet their "little monsters" next month!

Baby A

This little darling was a joy to photograph this morning.  She was wide awake and alert when I first got there, but it wasn't long before she soon slipped into baby dreamland.  Sweet dreams, Baby A.

Frozen Bubbles

For the last two days we have had arctic temperatures here.  Lows have been in the -20's, with wind chills double that, and our highs during the day hadn't gone above the minus teens.  Today we finally made it above zero (although not by much!) so I decided to take my camera outside for a few minutes and blow some bubbles.  They quickly crystallized into some pretty designs before collapsing in on themselves.
