Most days I usually don’t feel all that old. And then there are days that I’m shooting a family session and realize that I’ve known this amazing family for fourteen years, when these beautiful children were soooo little! Now that both kids are so grown up and busy in other states, their mum knew they were overdue for some family photos. And since Miss Abby’s scheduled changed at the last minute, we got creative and flexible. As long as they didn’t mind that I was coming straight from Muckfest with mud in my hair and looking like a complete mess, sure I could be creative and get this thing done in no time;)  I’m sure I made an even bigger impression on Abby’s boyfriend and JJ’s girlfriend and family whom I was meeting for the very first time! Despite my appearance, it was so great to connect again and to meet some sweet new faces. Thanks for having me guys….here’s your sneak peek.

I cannot believe that it was already time for Ryan’s six month session! And when his mum asked if we could add his big sister into the mix this time, I was up for the challenge. I mean it was 10 months before I ever got a real smile out of Miss Izzi and she still isn’t a huge fan of the camera. Now we are also adding in a new element. Ryan is mobile! Yep, he might be easy to get a smile out of, but this boy is on the move…always. So, a bit of wrangling, some crazy noises, excessive clapping and a constant rotation of toys and baby dolls and we managed to grab quite a few keepers;)

Here’s  a little secret….Miss Lux is actually 7 months in this session;) I actually love seven months a bit more than six… mostly because babies are a little less wobbly when sitting on their own than they are at six months, and Lux definitely had this sitting thing down. Too bad the same couldn’t be said for smiling. I mean as hard as her parents worked to get a smile out of her, there should have been some serious belly laughs. Buuut seven months also comes with bouts of teething and Lux had better ideas than to smile, which was okay since we still ended up with some really fun shots. And if you don’t just seriously fall in love with these gorgeous eyes of hers, you’re probably not human;)
