Sneak Peak - {M} Family

I have so much fun each and every time this family comes to me for pictures...and I love the fun props that mom brings for the sessions too ;)  It was so, so hard for me to just pick a few, I wish I could post them all!
And then...how in the world could I not post this!!  I have come to find out that 6 month olds are my absolute favorite!  We had a hard time getting some smiles out of her but we got a lot with her tongue out...I remember this from her newborn pictures too.


And how much fun is it to have a 2nd birthday cake smash!!  Remember his 1st birthday?

I definately can not wait until the next time!!

"Fill Their Stockings"

I have been so beyond blessed to meet some of the best photographers around, simply due to my passion for the orphans of the world. One of the items on my bucket list is to be able to go on missionary's with my girls, when they are old enough to understand, to help with the worlds orphans...but some people think I would probably take one home(and I can't say I wouldn't!)My whole photography beginnings started from simply following a ton of wonderful adoptive families' blogs and one led to the next, to the next, and so on. 
I attended a workshop in 2011 in the cities and met Lisa through my mentor's website.  I was so in awe of her awesome photography but was so intrigued by her adoption stories!  She had many surprises along the way but what a beautiful and perfect family they now have!  And to top it off she is an awesome cook...and shares many wonderful recipes ;)
So...starting November 25th...these three wonderful ladies will be hosting the "Fill Their Stockings" giveaways.  Your donation will go directly to the charity featured on each of the 3 blogs, Stefanie for An Orphan's Wish, Lisa for Half the Sky & Diana for Pearl River Outreach, and to benefit the orphans of the world!  This is a great time of year for this giveaway as I pray more than ever for the orphans just wondering if they get any special gifts, even just one for Christmas.  Or do they really know the real reason for the season?
So, hop on over to these blogs starting on Friday and enjoy the great giveaways!!  I know I will be participating!

Sneak Peak - C Family

This is a family that I have known since I was little...you may remember the oldest granddaughter from a mini session I did this summer in Oklee.  And she was as cute as ever this time around too!  I also got to capture her twin cousins...what fun! 

Aren't they the cutest!!
My brother graduated with their dad and I hadn't visited with him since they were in highschool..definately fun catching up!

I just love little M's tights...that is one thing that I miss about my girls growing up...all the cute outfits!!

And last, but not least, M....I just love her curls in her hair!

Thanks C family for choosing me to capture your family...it was so great to catch up with you!
