We had dinner with my Godson and his parents tonight, little E is a bouncing, bubbly, happy little man! It took him no time after dinner to get ready to have my camera in his face…

It is so hot here these days that it seems the only time to go outside is in the evening, but it was still hot. If I did not have my camera in my hands I more than likely would have joined in. Why can’t adults run and play in the water like little people?

maybe we would be afraid of the looks we would get for something like this…but how cute is he?!!

These are my sweet, beautiful, little nieces. They are graceful and tough at the same time. Little L here could run circles around the twins, she could chase them both down, tackle them and pin them down by sitting on them BOTH. Isaac and Logan loved every minute of it…

Little K cracked me up sticking out her tounge most of the time, I did manage to catch her pretty little smile…

We can’t wait to see you guys next month!

Remember this little guy? Well he is now six months, sitting up and contemplating joining his Daddy as an HPD Officer…

Look at these eyes! So not fair that little boys get great lashes when so many girls pay big bucks for those kind of batting beauties! WHAT a cutie-patootie!

Seniors Rock the Farm

Friday, June 19th, 2009
At least this one did, everyone was surprised that I took Harry’s beautiful cousin to the “part’s yard” at his family’s farm to get some portraits…she is gorgeous in any location but how cool that at her own family farm and the fields she has helped harvest in the past become a photography setting for her. One year left of high school then she is off to college..

Photobucket
This is one of my favorites…

Photobucket
maybe this is my favorite too…

I liked this in black and white…what do you think?

Happy for rainy days…

So I had the great honor to photograph some friends of ours on our vacation. We did not however think this was going to happen since we woke up in Wichita on Friday morning to a ban of thunder storms but we were able to dodge the rain drops and the lighting was perfect!

Harry had the honor of knowing this couple in college and I have had the great pleasure to get to know them and their beautiful little girls over the years…

This was my favorite family shot…if all family’s posed this pefect this naturally then I should have no problem in the future, what a great looking bunch!

Love just pours out of their skin for each other, it is so inspiring to see a faimly like this, they are very centered, God loving and they just devour all the details of life. I want to be like them one day! G family thank you so much for letting be be a part of your morning and giving me the opportunity to photograph and get to know the four of you better!

Definately not in Kansas anymore…

Wednesday, June 17th, 2009
Phew! Over two thousand miles, too many fast food joints to mention, all sorts of weather, happy but overly tired twin boys and a happy bouncing yet sometimes screaming baby. We made it to and from Kansas on our annual visit….although technically we did not go last year or the year before due to pregnancy and sick kids. We had a week chalked full of cousins, friends, Grandparents, Great Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles and a partridge in a pear tree…ok, wrong time of the year but I did get to see some cool owls~ I think my photo total came out to about 1800 photos in all, but I did have the great opportunity to do two different shoots which brought that tally up. The best way for me to share is to give you all a little every day. I am still editing but have got a good chunk of it done already.

Photobucket
We stopped on the way up to the farm for this shot (whats another 30 minutes to 17 hours straight through?) This was a windmill farm in some little town in Oklahoma. The sun was setting and it started to rain on me but I really could care less, I knew on the way up I wanted to stop here. We were however being watched by a state trooper who ended up following us to the state border, just to make sure these Texan’s would not start trouble I guess.

Photobucket
We packed for summer, shorts, sandals, its June you know. Nobody told us it would be 47 degrees when we arrived in Syaracuse. Harry came with me early on Monday morning to get some shots of different stuff around the farm, we froze. No complaints from me though, it was 104 upon our return to Houston, You Kansan’s have NO idea how lucky you are…oh and if you ever complain about your humidity again I will insist you come down to check out ours so you won’t mistaken beautiful weather for the steam bath we live in.

Photobucket
More cows, cows are afraid of me, they did not like my camera either. I tried to explain that it was really cool and could take amazing pictures. They turned and just walked away. Cows are rude. I did think it was funny how these two cows were hanging out, especially since their tag number sequence was in order!

Photobucket
This is Harry’s Grandparents, I love to think of how two people falling in love so long ago could create such a huge family that continues to grow, within one year there will be seven babies born, how many great grandchildren does that make now? I pretty much lost count at three.

Photobucket
Speaking of great grandchildren, here is Logan on Grandpa’s tractor…

Photobucket
and Jonah in the tire of the same tractor…

Photobucket
I was able to talk Harry’s uncle into bringing a tractor around so that he could have a photo with his grandkids, this was taken in Harry’s parents front yard…no way that could fit in my front yard, I think the tractor is bigger than our house!

I have lots more to come and some neat previews for those of you that are patiently waiting from our little mini sessions…I can’t wait to show you!!!
