Sometimes its just fun to play around with the same image and a variety of textures to get a different look.  Here’s a couple more from today.

Another adorable little man :)

If you follow my blog at all, you will recognize the “little man” from my session this morning, since I have taken his pictures so many times.  I haven’t seen his family in a while as they moved away, so it was so nice to see him again and see how much he has grown.  He has been one of my very favorite little people.  He is cute as can be with a personality to match.  I have just wrapped up this session and can’t wait for him to come back.  Okay, Kelly and Adam can come too, lol.  Seriously guys, thanks so much for making the trip out here and for being so great to work with as usual.

When Ayden arrived he was a little sleepy but it didn’t take long for him to start to perk up.  Then before you knew it he was ready to jump on the bed.  Just like all little boys.

But this little one must be able to get away with some fun stuff like that because just look at the face he gives you.  How adorable is he?

ayden5

Back to serious.  Hmmmm…..maybe he’s going to be an actor, lol.

Then he noticed a fly in the window so Adam had to catch it and let him go outside.  Afterwards he was very concerned about where he was and this was his concerned face.  He just makes me giggle.

ayden2

What a good looking bunch.

ayden11

I absolutely love every “Ayden” face.  Happy, sad, serious or just thinking.

Love this next one with his finger in his mouth.

So what is faster than a speeding bullet, can eat cheerios faster than you can dish them out and is able to melt the heart of any old photographer?  Well, it’s baby Carter and thats who I spent a few hours with on Saturday.  I shot his mom and dads wedding a few years ago and now this little guys just celebrated his first birthday.  He has the bluest eyes and sweetest smile and I seriously wanted to scoop him up and take him home with me but somehow I don’t think mom and dad would have let me.  Nor Grandma or Grampa for that matter.  Anyway, shooting the photos of a one year old is not for the faint at heart.  You have to be fast and flexible.  None of which I think I am these days.  But, with the help of mom and dad and a big box of cheerios, we were able to capture some great “1 year old” moments.  I hope you enjoy them 🙂

Isn’t he just the sweetest thing ever?  🙂

carter11

Now it didn’t take long and we couldn’t keep up with him anymore so we broke out the box of cheerios.  This could be an add, lol.  Doesn’t it remind you of those “e-trade” commercials with the talking baby?  Hmmm…..you could buy 4 boxes of Cheerios and with this attached coupon save $2 per bag of diapers……

carter4

Okay, I know he’s not looking at the camera but I just had to throw this one in because of his lashes.  Are you kidding me?

carter3

Blowing kisses.

carter2

I just love babies expressions.  Here he is playing with daddys Mickey Mouse from when he was little.  Aweeee….

carter10

Just look at how cute I am?

carter9

And not just cute, I am smart too.  I can read Mommy’s books.

carter111

carter7

He was really interested in getting his hands on my camera and was coming right for it, lol.

carter12

Dad was ready for this shot but somebody else had other ideas, lol.

carter5

Puddle time!!!

carter14

carter13

Like I said, sooo cute I could have taken him home.

Almost Spring!

Well its nice to finally have some decent weather but I am not holding my breath that it is here for good.  I heard something about crows the other day and two more snows.  Let’s hope thats an old wives tale.  If not, here’s something pretty to look at when things turn ugly. 🙂

This weekend I had a blast taking pictures of this special little guy.  He’s extra special because he is my boyfriends grandson.  I can’t believe the amount of photos I took of him and have just started to go through them.  Here’s a few of my favorites…..so far 🙂

I had a fun time with the Thompson’s tonight.  The kids are all such individuals which made the shoot very creative and fun.  Thanks guys!! 🙂

thompson62

Such a nice couple 🙂 Thanks for making the drive out to my place!

thompson1

Look at those eyes.

thompson31

 The gangsta, lol.  This guy was so cute.  Sorry buddy you probably don’t want to hear that, lol, but you were.

thompson41

 These next two boys were pretty serious, but when you let someone be serious when they want to be it sure works.  They rocked it.

thompson51

 And back to this beauty.  She was more of a fan of the camera than her brothers so we played around a bit and did some more creative stuff.  She’s great.
