These small books are so awesome!

I have one with my own kids in my purse. The covers stick together with a magical magnetic force. LOVE the stylish brown leather cover. It is pretty awesome!

I made these two minibooks a while back, but I just wanted to show off how the clean design makes these so special. People that see these are ALWAYS impressed!

First up…Libby, Gabe & Pauly. Enjoy!

Next…sweet Fletcher. Enjoy!

Christmas was crazy…but fun…

Sooooo…here I am again…behind schedule with lots of posts to do. I will try my best to catch up.

It was early December and the weather was icy cold. I got to meet this handsome prince and his sweet parents that just came in from a long trip from California. Just a few months old, Fletcher had amazing skin and so alert. After a little milk break he totally melted into a milk-coma before perking up and ready to play.

Thanks for bringing me your sweet baby! I really enjoyed meeting all three of you.

Here are some of my favorites…and no!…I’m not known for being able to cut too many images…so here goes… Enjoy!

A milk-break does the body good!

These kids are just fun fun fun to work with! Of course the latest addition to the family, Hadley, is a heartbreaker. She totally pulls off the cute and the attitude…

Here they are…in the latest addition of products that I offer…the MINI BOOKS. These are wallet size…and fits perfectly in even a smaller purse. The covers are magnetic, so they stick together. There is also an option to add a clear cover to store them in.

Easter is over and all the bunnies have gone home. Except for these two that were hiding in the barn with our pony. They were found when my husband cleaned out the barn, but Mamma bunny didn’t want them back, so they moved in with us. Do you think our kids were excited? Just a little!

Kamilla and Shadow, as they were named by our kids, were fed with a syringe for the first week or so. Now, they munch on grass and dandelions that are picked fresh daily.

The bunnies have grown a bit since these pictures were taken. I just couldn’t resist the bunny-in-the-shoe-shots…and then the kids came home from school and wanted to be in a couple of shots as well.

Enjoy!

A little while back I went back to photograph Joey and Theron’s baby sister. She is so sweet…rolls and all! What a fun bunch they are! The boys were very excited to get their picture taken, but Theron thought one was good…DONE! Not so fast Mister! I did some more of the princess and worked my way back to him. Joey…well, what a card! He made all the funny faces in the book…and then some. In the end we got some sweet stuff. Thanks guys!

Here are some of my favorite shots. Enjoy!

What a handsome little 6 month old boy! He had just woke up and while enjoying a dairy drink he was just smiling and talking up a storm. Those little ones sure have the sweetest sounds! He grinned and smiled and drooled non-stop for his mom and me.

Jacoby’s house is right next door to a golf course, so we headed for the “back yard”.

Check out the first couple of teeth in that sweet face.

After a little while big brother Jackson showed up and brought his big-boy tractor. Jacoby was pretty much done with the shoot right then…he’d rather check out the tractor. Well, I tried to squeeze in one more that I had envisioned as I got to his house initially. It just wasn’t happening though… Jacoby had had enough…it was time to explore instead. Oh well, what can you do…just love them.  : )

Here are a few. Enjoy!

My sister’s baby came early and my baby came late, as all three of my kids did. Instead of being two months apart, our boys are one month and one day apart. I should really dig out a shot from their first birthday, they were so cute…with a cherry on top! Matching green shirts with a frog and a party hat…it was quite a sight!

Well, today is Theodor’s birthday…six years old…wow! What happened? These boys are now scootering, riding motorcycles, diving, doing flips on the trampoline and know how to run ANY Wii or Playstation game. I am actually okay with it though. What I have enjoyed with all my kids are the different stages they go through…and at the end of the day they all still love to snuggle. Mmmm…enjoying it while I can!

After the kids came home from their summer activities, basketball and cupcake decorating (posting stuff later), we got on the computer to Skype Theodor and sing him the “Happy Birthday” song. Luckily they were all home and our kids had a fun time visiting via Skype. He had just received the letter we sent last week with cards from each of our kids, and one from Stine’s friend Grace, plus a bunch of Diego band-aids.

Here is a cute shot of my oldest daughter visiting with Theodor, his baby sister and my sister. Plus a cute curious friend in the background. Thanks to Skype we get to see and speak to my family at the same time, for FREE. Lovin it!

Friday morning looked gloomy and grey. I checked the weather forecase, which predicted more clouds and possibly rain. Oh well, I thought…you take what you get and make the best of it. Right before I left my one daughter looked at me and stated that the weather was going to be sunny and super ALL DAY. Thanks sweetie, I told her, thinking what a positive mind she had. As I drove to the Winnebago Valley Park, where the shoot would be, I could see blue skies to the north and…was I just imagining this or were the clouds going away…? By the time I got to the park the clouds were almost gone. Amazing!!!

I met Natasha last year when she and her mother came to visit me and see me and my work. Now I got to meet Joey. I think Joey smiled and made jokes the whole time. What a fun couple! What a treat! Later this summer I get to shoot their wedding as well. I’m very excited!

Here are some of my favorites. Enjoy!

Yes! I know…sometimes it takes me a while to get through stuff. My family is usually the ones that have to wait. I’m trying to get ALL my photos processed. That means going through every file and doing something with them. Here are some shots from last year!!! Ezra turned 1 last February and I’m just getting to it now. There are a few cute shots of some of the boys running around in their underwear that I wish I could post, but have decided not to.  Here is a couple of shots of the birthday boy and his cousins playing pirates. Cute! First a few shots of baby Auryn.

Gotta love the cake in the refrigerator…right next to the bottle. 

ezrabday2008-57

The birthday boy himself. Happy Birthday Ezra! HURRA!!!

ezrabday2008-70

All partied out…

ezrabday2008-72

Jakob…trying to show me his pirate face.

ezrabday2008-75

Cousin Nick is also a great pirate!

ezrabday2008-81

Isaac staring me down with his good eye.  : )

ezrabday2008-99

Noah the pirate. The eye patch is cool, but a little tricky.

ezrabday2008-84

A bunch of pirates…up to no good…with their treasure map. Watch out!!!

ezrabday2008-871

Clue number one takes the pirates to the basement. They are just too cute!

ezrabday2008-88

They found the hidden treasure chest. 

ezrabday2008-89

Now lets see if they can share or if it will be every kid for himself.

ezrabday2008-91

So far so good…

ezrabday2008-953

Jakob with his share of the treasure.

ezrabday2008-97

Noah has his part. Check out the ring on his finger. My kids were wearing the rings for days afterwards. Thanks for a great party guys!

How lucky am I! I got to meet a fun bunch of kids just a couple of days ago. There’s Pauly (14). He was so patient with his younger siblings. What a sweet guy! There’s wonderful Gabe (4) and the little cutie, Libby (2). Of course little Libby kept her brothers busy. She had no time to stand or sit still, but hey, that would almost be crazy to expect.  : ) As I have mentioned before, two-year-olds are always on the move, just the way it should be. I did manage to get a couple of brief moments of little Libby and her amazing family! Here are a few of my favorites.
