i have been really blessed with great clients and this family was super fun!  kiddos with lots of energy keep me on my toes and make for a lot of fun memories, see…

i love it when the parents want a few shots of just them!  brian & kathryn were so cute together…

little moments like these are why i heart my clients & my job…

kathryn emailed to tell me that her kiddos wanted to do it all over again the next day…what a great blessing of a compliment!  thanks guys!  it was awesome running around with you for the evening!  let’s do it again sometime!

jake & annie are so cool!  they are both artists and extremely talented in many different genres: music…painting…drawing…graphic design…photography…they can pretty much do it all!

Jake and Annie are super cool… I remember meeting them at Livi’s party. These pics are more than fabulous! I’m definitely checking out her album!

the funny things livi says…

“can you give me some pribacy (privacy)? “-to me while she was going potty 08/09

on the plane i handed her the airsick bag and told her that it was in case her tummy felt bad.  she took it from me, held it flat against her stomach and said, “now my tummy feels much better!” -08/09

“mumsy, it’s easy!”-to my mom about getting her in her car seat & strapped in 08/09

before shopping one morning mumsy, livi, & i had this conversation:

mumsy:”livi what would you like to get”  livi:”i want an umbrella!”  me:”like mine?”  livi:”yes”  me:”well, go tell mumsy that you’d like to get a burberry umbrella”  livi:”mumsy, i want a burberry umbrella!”  mumsy:”you do!  well, go tell your mom that you need a job”  livi:”mommy, i need a job!” 08/09

“do you have a credit card?”-to mumsy as she was running into the gas station to buy some juice 08/09

hard at work…take a little wink

i am really super-duper excited about the shoots that i’m working on!  here’s a teeny tiny peek, we’ll call it a wink!  see…

jake & annie…two of the coolest people ever for sure!


a family that was wonderful to work with…three kiddos and such amazing chemistry…what a dream!
