The Hanks Family

This was the last large group shoot that I had scheduled for the year. The rest will have to wait until spring. What a beautiful, photogenic and fun family! We had originally scheduled this shoot to be outdoors but the weather turned so cold, it was moved inside. I was sick (I hope no one caught it!) and we had to move some furniture, and the whole Christmas tree. I was pretty worried we wouldn't have enough light but I thought I would go and see what we could get. I had to up my ISO as high as it would go and so these photos turned out a little more grainy than I would like, but I think it definitely adds some fun texture to the photographs and they turned out much better than I had anticipated on my way to the shoot. Now for the million photos... LOL

The darling couple responsible for this beautiful bunch.

I love this one. Especially the three boys in the front!

And now for the beautiful grandchildren!

I have to say this one goes in my top ten favorites for the year!

I was editing this photo when my husband Dave walked by and said he wished he had hair like that!

Okay little Curtis definitely has the biggest, bluest, most sparkly eyes I have ever seen on a baby!

Adam & Stacey

I got to shoot these two around Thanksgiving? These photos were part of a Christmas gift so I didn't want to post them before now. I love the urban look in these and am dying to do more of this type of work. These guys were the best "on camera" kissers yet!

Zoey & Madison

Zoey & Madison

I have known both of these girls since they were born, & Marina is one of my best friends. I got to shoot them when I was first starting out and Madison was a lot smaller.

Madison was terrified of the lights and my camera so I am afraid that we didn't get any true smiles out of her. But she is still pretty darn cute!!!

Zoey is a little darling. I love that long, dark hair and they both have the biggest, brownest eyes!

Olivia Nicole Walker

I got to do a session with my first niece last night. She is the cutest baby in the world (okay next to my own ;) if I do say so myself. And weighing in at 6 lbs 11 ounces (at least when she was born - probably less now) it was fun working with such a tiny newborn. She is only five days old! I finally got to use my cute basket! Now I have the hard task of deciding WHICH photos to post!

Chris and Olivia. I love the daddy daughter ones!

Heather is such a cute mommy!

Look at those adorable, skinny little legs! I love newborns.

Doesn't she have the cutest little fingers? Sigh...

Ambree, Bailey, and Brielle Nielson

These three came into the studio for a shoot on Friday. My first set of twins! They were an active pair but with mom's help we managed to wrangle them enough to get some really cute shots. Big sister Ambree had the FUNNIEST faces and kept me laughing.

Bailey & Brielle, in the buff. TOO CUTE!

Bailey did not want to smile at me, no matter what. But check out those eyes!

Brielle on the other hand, lit up whenever we sang itsy bitsy spider - such a little personality already!

Ambree was too cute and very cooperative!

This would be my vote for the Christmas card!
