Pumpkin Patch Cuties

I had some seriously cute kids in yesterday for their Pumpkin Portraits. Just see for yourself...

I love this one even though I know the look was a "do we have to do more of this?" kind of look. LOL.

How cute is this little guy? He was so smiley. Mama must be doing a good job. Sweet boy. :>)

These two are growing up so fast! Beautiful. And I want one of those Oilily skirts!

Thanks for the great pose idea Amy. How handsome does he look?!?

A sweet brother and sister. He was so good to her.

This look is priceless. She wasn't going for the hay, the pumpkins, nothing. Not until mom and her friend started doing "Ring Around the Rosie." LOL. The things we do to get our children to smile!

This little girl was on the move. I'm glad I was able to capture this cute look.

Four months old and she sat up so well! Of course, mom was right by her side and grandma got her to smile so nicely. She loves her grandma - you can tell.

This little guy will be a heartbreaker. He is just so handsome. Another smiley guy.

Love the red hair! Of course I'm partial... He had these huge smiles. It was so hard to pick my favorite.

And last, but not least, my little cutie pie. :>)

Happy Fall everyone!

Only two days until pumpkin portraits! I am so in the mood to do something "fall-ish." And, so in the mood to get the straw bales out of the back of my van. With the temps getting over 100 degrees inside the van during the day you can imagine that it smells like a barn in there! The pumpkins, fall leaves and hay for the pumpkin patch sessions are a perfect way to get into the fall groove. Wish the weather felt that way too. LOL. Can't wait to see all the cute little kiddos in their outfits.

This is an image from my fun session with my friend Deb a couple of weekends ago. The colors feel like fall to me! See you all Saturday. :)

We took our son to an old car show and I got some sweet images. Cool cars and really nice people. I met someone who has a cousin who has a rusted truck sitting in their field. This is PERFECT for senior photography. Anyone interested???

Here's a couple of the cars:

Mind you, I did some post-processing of these images. I'm sure the owners would kill me if they saw what I did to the color of their cars! :>) Pretty sweet, huh?

My friend Deb was gracious enough to go outside in 90+ degree weather in jeans and sweat so that I could take some photographs of her. You can see why though. She's gorgeous.

We had a great time laughing at ourselves and doing silly poses. She makes me laugh. Good friend. Good time. :>)

Look what I found...

Perfect for pumpkin portraits! I like to change the scenery, so to speak, of the set each year. I found this in an antique store on Tuttle and Bee Ridge right next door to Pitter Patter children's consignment store. The owner was great and showed me some different items that I might want to consider for props. Nice guy. If you're looking for antiques, I would go to that store not only because they have cool stuff, but the customer service is great. He even opened the door for me on my way out. How nice is that?

What Color Is This?

This is the awesome color of K2's walls. The absolute perfect backdrop for Pumpkin Portraits! I usually hang a backdrop, but this is just too perfect to pass up. Karen suggested it last year, but I already had my mind set on the way the whole set would look. This year I want to try something different. So here we go! So excited!

This is the cute jacket I found for Carter's pumpkin portraits. I picked it up at JCPenney fr the grand total of $15.74. Can't beat that! It came with a maroon shirt with a hood, but I wanted to see what it would look like with a white shirt. Oh, and by the way, his payment for letting me take this image was a little tiny piece of gum. :>) Which he promptly swallowed. :>)

If you haven't signed up yet, make sure to call K2 at 926-1744 to reserve a session. Don't wait too long or that perfect time slot for your child's schedule may be taken.

Early Pumpkin Patch Portraits This Year

Pumpkin portraits will be a little early this year. K2 is hosting me again on September 15 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Make sure to call them at 926-1744 to reserve a session!

I got the greatest outfit for Carter this last weekend! They had a great sale at JCPenney. I found this three-piece outfit with a tan corduroy jacket with brown suede patches on the elbows, jeans and a maroon shirt with hood for $16. I may do away with the shirt and put him in a dress shirt. Not sure if I want to go preppy or hip. We'll see. Can't wait to get his pumpkin portraits this year. He's been a challenge to photograph, but now I know exactly what will make him smile (besides Candie at K2) - the word "cockroach." So boy, isn't it!?

Mr. Wide Awake

This little guy looks like he's sleepy, but believe it or not, he stayed awake for the majority of the session! Mom said he took a good, long nap afterwards.

Mommy love...

So sweet.

This Mom Really Gets It

This mom brings her kids in each year to get their "headshots" done and also gets a family portrait taken. I love that she understands how important it is to record the lives of her children and family in portraits.

Here are their cutie-patooties. :>)

Bad Blogger...Bad, Bad, Bad!

What can I say? I have a hard time keeping up with my blogging. :>)

I had a session with another really nice family from Wisconsin. One of the girls lives down here and mom, dad and sister will be moving down soon. I think they'll really enjoy their first freeze-free winter. :>)

Love those gummy smiles!

Remember this beautiful little guy?

Well, here he is at 3.5 months. Couldn't ya' just eat him up?! He has the biggest smiles. SO big that you can see all of his toothless gums. I love it!

Mom can't get enough of him either. :>) Can't say as I blame her.

Such a sweet little boy and such a loving mommy.

I took this shot over the Memorial weekend. Ahhh..to live in Florida. Now if we could just get rid of the darn love bugs! :>)

So tiny

Love to take pictures of this family! They just added another redhead to the bunch, 3.5 weeks early! She is so tiny...yet so strong. Amazing little girl. Her parents adore her and so do her big sisters. It was sweet to see them interact with her. I had a hard time choosing my favorites so there are several for mom to look at. Enjoy! She's adorable. :>)

The shot below is a la Audrey Woulard. Her work is so inspiring.

Look what the Easter bunny left behind. :>)

Being a redhead myself, I am totally partial to this family of reds. Just beautiful.

The image below gives you some idea of how small she really is with Dad's hands holding her.
