A few weeks back I had this sweet family over for a family portrait. I do most of my portraits outside, but we decided to stay inside because of the little prince. How sweet was he! Of course it’s always quite the challenge with those little ones. The prince needed to eat and then after at least two more feedings was ready for a close-up. It was too funny! I guess he slept like a king after we were all done. Thanks for being so patient mom and dad!

Here are some of my favorite images! 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!

Last weekend these sweet girls came out to my house and we did a bunch of fun shots. The weather was awesome…with a small exception of all the bugs that came out as we went down in the valley.

The girls had lots of different outfits and we had a great time. I think these turned out really cool!

Check out some of my favorites. Enjoy!

I’m trying to move forward, but have a little catching up to do from last year. Yeah, that sounds like a loooong time ago, but it’s only been about two weeks.

In 2007 I was so fortunate to be asked to document the wedding of Abbie and Zach. This fall they had a beautiful little princess, Nora. Congratulations, she is soooo sweet!

Right before Christmas Abbie’s mom called me to see if I could come over and take pictures of Nora and her eight month old cousin Dunkin. Of course! Whew! I have to admit, it was a little busy…but oh how fun. What a nice family. Grandma grabbed both great-grand kids in her arms and we did our best to make them all happy. Little Dunkin…well, that is kind of an understatement…he was such a big kid I had a hard time with the idea of him only being eight months old. I even asked if they thought he would be able to hold the baby. Needless to say…they just laughed at me. I guess it’s been a while since my babies were that little.

Here are some of my favorite shots. 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!

Earlier this fall I did pictures of two sweet brothers; Jackson and Jacoby. When I pulled up I had envisioned them sitting in front of the house…did a bunch of pictures…and by the time we got around to my idea…the boys were done. I came back to get just that one shot and think it turned out super sweet. It ended up on the Christmas card I made for the family. I will show some cards in my next post.

The house picture and another favorite were both worked to look a little more artsy. I can’t wait to see how the second one will look on the wall!

Enjoy!

One of my sweet nieces, Rachel,  just had a baby, well actually it’s been about a month. He is soooo precious and has that wonderful baby smell. A while back they came over for lunch and I got a couple of snaps of the sleeping prince…and one of big brother playing on the floor. I should have taken lots more shots, but hey, sometimes you just gotta take it all in.

He is such a good baby, but I have hardly seen him with his eyes open. I guess it would help if I went to visit a little more often. Gotta find the time!

Enjoy these few shots of…baby Mario…as we jokingly call him.

Check out those itty bitty toes!

Right after Christmas I was so fortunate to be able to go home to Elli’s house to capture a few moments with her. A couple of years ago I also photographed Bryce. He is so grown up now. Amazing! Here are some of my favorite shots. Enjoy!

I had the pleasure of making quite a few Christmas Cards this season. Here are a few. Enjoy! Also, wishing everyone a very merry Christmas and everything good for the new year. God Jul og Godt Nytt År!

Laura called me to come out and get some pictures of her kids. I had fun chasing the kids around. Gavin was as willing as Gunnar was not. Gunnar wanted to drive the ATV around instead. Forget doing pictures, this kid is a machine buff.  : ) We had fun and got a variety of fun images.  For their 4×8 Christmas card I did a variety of styles and Laura immediately went for the retro look. Thanks for the fun day!

This little princess was her mother’s favorite for the 5×7 folded watercolor card. It turned out beautifully!  Kenny herself came up with the wording, which I think is soooo sweet!

Here is the inside that folds down. Aren’t the kids just yummy!

Artsy feet. Too cute. I especially love how Pauley’s shorts look so short and Gabe’s shorts look soooo oversized. Let’s not overlook the baby chubs on Libby’s arms. Sweet!

My sister-in-law called me up, as usual  : ). “Hey, Kathrine, would it be any trouble to make a card for us?” Of course not! I love making cards and took the cute shot she emailed, enhanced it and made three different ideas. Both her kids and ours agreed on this design. This card is a 5×5 and as always metallic. I LOVE metallic!

The first time I met Heather and Abe and their kids I did pictures for little Theron. He’s not so little anymore and this time I got to photograph the whole family. First we went up to a cabin and did some shots by appletrees and tall weeds. What a blast! Later I went to their hose to do a couple of headshots. Young kids are always challenging, because you have about two minutes to get what you need…then the’re DONE!  : ) Big brother Joey and Theron were awesome and I had a hard time putting my camera down. Thanks for playing with me! This is the front to their 5×7 folded watercolor card. The blue turned out just as bright and blue as I had imagined. The icy blue is Heather’s favorite color as well. Cool!

Here is the inside. I just love the wording Heather added. Gotta love those toes!

What a sweeeeet moment with the boys! I have to do something artsy with this shot later. It is just too cute!!!

This is our card this year. I wanted a little space to add a personal message to each and every one. Usually I add a letter with updates from the past year, but this year I just didn’t have, or take, the time. There’s always next year! I enjoy getting them, so I’ll do my best.
