    Smiling with the Sisters

    Photographing such loving, photogenic, and adorable sisters reminded me once again why I love photography so much.  I had the opportunity to capture a special connection and a sparkle that shines through their eyes…there is nothing better than that!  I get to give parent’s memories of their children, but sometimes I think they should be charging me because I get just as much out of the session as they do.  Love, love, love it.

    As I was taking these pictures and editing the set, you couldn’t wipe the smile from my face.  Once again I have to say that life is so good!  I couldn’t decide what to blog, so I’m just going to blog everything I have edited so far because the images are a story of our time together!

    School Photos of the G. Family

    My neighbour asked me to shoot her kid’s school photos.  We met up at the park on a chilly Halloween morning, and I tried to coax the kids into thinking it was warm beach weather.  They were great sports and so very photogenic!

    Meet their beloved pet Max.  Isn’t he adorable?
