    TOPIC: Family Sessions.

    While my friend Caroline is certainly the client I’ve known the longest (we were in diapers together), there are several others who I’ve known for almost as long.  Shelby, for instance, was my next-door neighbor starting in kindergarten.  And while I was on today’s shoot, Sam reminded me that we were in the same kindergarten class.  I knew I’d known him for a really long time, but I had forgotten just how far back.  He was always the life of any classroom, with a big happy smile on his face.  His beautiful wife Leslie also went to school with us in middle and high school.  I hadn’t met their almost-two-year-old daughter Camille until this session, and she was such a perfect Sam/Leslie combo: sweet, sassy, hilarious, and relentlessly curious about her surroundings.  She totally led the way during her shoot and giggled the whole time.  And for the grand finale, she led us in a little session of Prancercise.  Mic drop.

    Forging Ahead | Memphis Family Photography

    When I last photographed Dax, he was just a few days old and was already attempting to master the art of male modeling. So it was a joy to come back about a year and a half later and see how he’s coming. Verdict: awesome.

    We met Amanda and Timothy at Overton Park, because Dax is head over heels in love with Rainbow Lake Playground. This is probably because he is curious about everything: he was running, climbing, and investigating throughout our photo shoot. He managed to climb the steps at Memphis College of Art all by himself (with plenty of spotters at his back, of course) and was so pleased when he reached the summit. Then we went into the Old Forest, and my mom and I lifted our voices in a joyful (?) noise, singing a caterwauling version of “Jingle Bells” so bad that he couldn’t help but laugh despite having been paused in his running for a moment.

    After we had covered plenty of ground, we led him to his reward at the playground, where he decided to try out the big slide. He was a little alarmed at first by how steep it was, but that was quickly replaced by a look that said, “DUDE. That was AMAZING.”

    2.O | Pittsburgh Family Photography

    During my fall Pittsburgh trip, we celebrated the second birthday of my friend Laura’s son, Mr. O. Last year we did photos of their whole family prior to his birthday party, so we decided to continue the tradition. (Next year they’ll have a new member, since Laura is expecting again. Yay!!)

    This year O is chatty and into everything, but most especially trains, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, and his morning milk snack. He’s just about the most agreeable kid ever. His uncle Bob got him a play workbench, and he spent the next morning yelling, “Ham ham ham!” as he hammered away. The cutest.

    Here are the family pics and a couple from his cupcake feast. (As always, he was more interested in his vegetables, which is a statement that, sigh, I wish I could make about myself.)

    Tea for Two | Arlington Family Photography

    Second birthdays are the theme of the year (as I imagine third birthdays will be the theme of next year–funny how that works). The day after Tamsie and Evie’s second birthday party, we reconvened in Arlington Depot Square for official second-birthday family photos. This was Aunt Mo’s first time curating outfits for a shoot, since the girls’ dresses were my present to them this year, and I think it turned out so sunshiney and happy.

    The girls were incredibly enthused by the train passing by mid-shoot, which we watched from the porch of the tea shop. But nothing pleased them more than running up and down the ramp over and over again. Tamsie dropped her slightly-too-large bloomers a time or two so she may have lost some reps in trying to pull them back up, but that didn’t dampen her glee one bit.

    Happy (at this point very belated) birthday, girls. Aunt Mo loves you so much!

    On the Verge | Germantown Family Photography

    It has been such a wonderful year getting to watch little Eli grow up.  When we did this session at the end of November, he was on the verge of a few things: his first birthday, his first steps, and meeting his little brother.  Caroline and Fred have since had little Ethan, and we did has newborn shoot a month ago so you can tell I am really, REALLY behind on blogging!  Forgive me?

    Here’s ever more compelling evidence that Eli is just about the sweetest kid in the world.
