This little guys momma and I played phone tag for a few days before we finally were able to connect and schedule a session. Man, I am sure glad we did because this little man was sooooooooo stinking adorable. He was a model baby for sure. The smiles, grins, poses. His big sister was so easy to work with too. Two naturals, check it out >>

Easter Mini’s (w/ baby chicks) 2014

// Author: Lauren // 0 Comments

It is that time of year again – Easter Mini Sessions! YAY. I have to admit these are my FAVORITE sessions, because seeing the children’s reactions to the chicks is always sooooooooooo much fun! So here is a sneak peek of my day in the studio with the kiddos and chicks.

Antonio – Oh my word. His facial expressions had me laughing so hard when I loaded his pictures! These are only 3 out of 20!

Carly & Olivia – These two are pro’s at my Mini Sessions by now and I love it. They are also great chicken wranglers! & I always capture lots of silly faces that keep me laughing while editing.

Ellie- This was my first time meeting this sweet little girl and she was ADORABLE. So sweet and slightly scared of the chicks but she held one like a pro and posed like a model.

Emma-   This sweet little one stopped by and she just happened to be exactly 5 months old! She had grown so much since I captured her at 5 days old. Such a sweet treat to see her. She was just precious & BEAUTIFUL blue eyes.

Madison –
I was so excited to have this sweet little girl stop by again with her beautiful curly hair. She did great with the chicks and even brought her bunny with her. I loved it.

Paxton- Seriously, he was a natural at just 5 months old! He looked at the camera and grinned. I could photograph him everyday! & He did so well with the chicks for such a young age. Oooohhh, and the bunny ears & tail…. adorable.

Thank you to everyone who stopped by. It was a wonderful day with the kiddos and chicks. I look forward to it again next year.

Grasyn & Brayden {Auntie’s Boys // March 2014}

At the beginning of March, I made a trip south to visit my nephews. It had been far too long since I had seen them last (when we visited Disney World over Thanksgiving) and even thought they are headed home for Easter this year (yay) I needed to see them soon. The warm southern weather and sweet sunshine is just an added bonus. & to accompany their weather, the U Pick Daffodil Fields were in full bloom, so we put on their Easter outfits and took a trip over to pick Mommy some flowers while she was working…

boys will be boys, and they have their moments – but these two are also best friends.

the sun was bright and there was tons of squinting … but i think we still captured a few nice memories.

Auntie even got to capture a picture – at least my B-bug was looking at the camera.

We got a nice shot with Grandma too.

I miss those boys so much – hurry back to PA soon!

Here are also some “outtakes” from my cellphone captures… because I don’t carry my Mark II every where I go. Warning: poor quality but precious moments ahead >>

They love their jeep rides through the woods.
