Normally at this time of the year, I am offering Christmas mini sessions. And this year due to a change in studio locations and things not being wrapped up quite yet, I haven’t had that opportunity.  So when one a favorite family asks for a mini session, we turn it into a full session which was wayyyy more fun than any mini session would have been. Seriously though, who wouldn’t love cookies for breakfast on a Sunday morning?!

At this point, I’ve definitely lost track of how many times I’ve photographed different members of this family. And that is totally awesome, because it just means that I get so many more chances to document them all as they fall in love and then raise these amazing little humans. One of my favorite things is really watching these little personalities develop…especially since they are all so hilarious. They also are all on the move and aren’t completely into cheesing it up for the camera (except for Adrien and Connor). I will definitely be chasing down Izzi and Ry soon to actually get a sibling photo and an individual shot of Ry, since he was way more interested in bubbles, lollipops and wandering! Thanks again for having me, Morgan. I’m already looking forward to the next one<3

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 first met JJ when he was six or seven, back before my husband was my husband. JJ and his sister, Abby, were some of my favorite kids that attended an after school program at their private school. My job there was pretty much to hang out and play…oh and I suppose there was some responsibility involved, but mostly it was just play:)  Now, with both our families being connected to the military, we have had the opportunity to visit more than a few times over the years.  But that does not mean it is any easier to believe that “little” JJ is graduating!

JJ, I still cannot believe how much you’ve grown. Best of luck in life and love and if ever you need to bang on the drums, you know how to find us:)

I could not believe how fast my fall mini sessions booked up for last weekend!  Thanks a million to all of you who came out.  I said it on my Facebook page a few days ago, and I will say it again now….my clients have THE most adorable children EVER! Here’s a little peek just to prove it:)

Hannah received an awesome baby shower gift from her great friend Morgan (Adrien’s mom)…a combo maternity and newborn session done by yours truly:)  And while she was excited about the newborn session, she decided to swap out the maternity session for a little family session once the twins were about three months old.  Of course, this worked out perfectly to capture Maine’s gorgeous fall colors and to get a few shots of the kids in their Halloween costumes as well. Oh yeah, and so I could snuggle those babies again too:)

Adrien: ONE year!

December 4, 2012

Driving to Adrien’s one year session, I was feeling a bit sad.  I met this little guy one year ago and have photographed him every three months since he was born.  Of course, his momma will be sure to schedule pics in the years to come;)  I have had so much fun seeing how much he has grown and changed ….not to mention some great playtime!  But my sadness turned to joy as on my way to this session, I got word that my newest little nice had just been born!!  Yes, now Nina and Ade have the same birthday, and I have another sweet face to photograph every three months:)

For anyone who doesn’t know, I always bring a cute hat that I personally make to all my newborn sessions and the baby gets to keep it.  And since Ade’s one year session was so close to Thanksgiving, I couldn’t resist making him a fun turkey hat:)

And what’s more fun than a turkey hat?  Well, balloons of course….

Adrien: 9 months

September 18, 2012

I have been photographing Adrien every three months since he was born and there is no question that he gets cuter every single session we have!  And this session…..he finally, FINALLY gave me some full-on smiles:) I am talking all out belly laughs and grins so big his eyeballs disappear. There is no way to get through this blog post without smiling back at him.  Go ahead. Try it. I dare you:)

Exactly one month ago today, as I posted Reid’s newborn session I just knew that his family session would be even more fun:) But before I share with you all the mushy gushy love that the Strout family brings to the blog, I have to share something. Just two days after little Reid’s newborn session, he began a 14 day stay in the NICU. He had contracted a virus and was very sick to the point of even experiencing encephalitis. Thankfully, he is back in his family’s arms where he belongs with a long happy life ahead of him.

Now, I shared all that to say this…in this family their love is evident. They love each other with every bit of their souls and cherish every victory big and small. What is more, they have the pictures to prove it. So no matter where you are in your life, the time to make your memories last forever is now.

Okay, now that all the sentiments have been made…meet the Strouts:)

I am at a loss for words. I mean it does not seem possibly that just three short months ago we shot Adrien’s three month session. He can’t possibly be six months old already. And yet, just as his adorable red hair is quickly fading to blond, he certainly has grown a ton more and is even more adorable than just three short months ago!

See for yourself:)
