As much as I love photographing kiddos, sometimes it is so nice to not have to jump around and sing silly songs to get people to look at me, and to crack a grin. Sometimes the furry kiddos require a little extra attention, but this guy, although excited to be at the park, was a good boy! It was fun walking around the park with you guys today- have a great weekend, and enjoy your sneak peek lovebirds!
This darling little redhead is just one of my favorite little ones to photograph---she is full of grins and smiles, and has the best wardrobe of any tot I know! In addition, her mom and grandmom are pretty fantastic too( and not just because they excel at singing goofy songs and bringing awesome distraction toys!) , and seeing them is always a bonus! This morning, we got a jump start on Christmas pics and now I'm itching for the holidays, and it's not even Halloween yet! Enjoy your sneak peek you guys!
This little guy is just destined to be best friends with my new arrival, I just know it. I can already see them getting into trouble together and mine hasn't even been born yet! (Now I'm sure that has nothing to do with the fact that his beautiful momma and I have gotten into trouble together a few times....). But seriously, with these gorgeous eyes, and sweet little features, how could this one not get into trouble, breaking every little heart in town? He has mine, that's for sure...enjoy your sneak peek you guys- love you!
This gorgeous momma to be was just glowing the night of our session. Road rage and getting yelled at on "county roads" couldn't even put a dent in her enthusiasm, and it was so much fun to work with her (and hubby too of course)! Enjoy your sneak peek - can't wait to meet your little bundle of pink soon! Oh, and leave some love- with 20 comments, momma will get a complimentary 8x10 courtesy of KSP!
This sweet little thing is turning one and I can't believe it. I have a canvas of her hanging in my studio from her newborn session, so for me, she has been frozen forever at that age...until now! While she has grown up into a beautiful little girl, it's uncanny the resemblance she has to her newborn shots---the full lips, gorgeous head of hair, and dainty little features. Here she is as a newborn-- http://kristinstaplesphotography.blogspot.com/2010/10/just-perfect.html and today, just as sweet! Happy Birthday sweet girl!
Ahhh, this little man has done it again. Despite out best efforts, mom, grandmom and I could not get him to crack a smile for us---we got a few fleeting grins, but alas, the smile evaded us once again. I can't say I have ever seen a more serious one year old. But I do have to say that what he hides in smiles, he more than makes up for in the cuteness department! Happy Birthday little man- it has been so wonderful to watch you grow this year. Momma- enjoy your sneak peek- you earned it!
These handsome brothers were a pleasure to photograph this morning! The camera just loved them, and it was the perfect way to spend the start of a gorgeous day! It was wonderful meeting you guys- don't break too many hearts!!
This little darling stole my heart the minute I saw her...her wispy strawberry blonde hair reminded me a little bit of Cooper's when he was a baby, and her sweet, delicate little features took my breath away. Maybe it's because we share a birthday, but I just couldn't get enough of her...and she didn't seem to mind me too much either! It was so lovely meeting you little K (oh, maybe another reason I love her- she shares a name with one of my absolute favorite people- my little sis), and it was wonderful catching up with your parents too- it had been too long! Enjoy your sneak peek B family, and if little K gets 20 comments on her blog post, she will geta complimentary 8x10 with her order!
So this session started off just how you would expect a session with twin toddler tots to go---a little crazy, a lot fun, and a definite challenge. After they warmed up to me though we started getting some cute shots. Emboldened, and while they were sitting together on a crate, I asked little man to hug his sister....or maybe it was vice versa.....and within seconds they were rolling around on the grass. I just couldn't help myself---how wonderful to have a best friend for life, there with you from the first minute. We go some really cute shots mom, but these make me want to cry---they really show how much love they have for each other and how much fun they have together! So while you will get a bunch of non-wrestling shots in your gallery, these were my favs, and the ones I couldn't help but share- enjoy!
This sweet little pumpkin was such a treat to photograph this morning. We had started her first birthday session on Irene eve,and had to end early when the dark clouds rolled in. I can't say I'm upset about that though, because today, the little pumpkin warmed right up to me and we were able to get some beautiful smiles and great expressions out of her! And, this session reminded me of just how much I love the fall--great seeing you and the mini me today D!
If one feels the need of something grand, something infinite, something that makes one feel aware of God, one need not go far to find it. I think that I see something deeper, more infinite, more eternal than the ocean in the expression of the eyes of a little baby when it wakes in the morning and coos or laughs because it sees the sun shining on its cradle -Vincent Van Gogh
What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories. ~George Eliot
