The kiddos




I took these on a Sunday afternoon a few weeks ago. Not a planned shoot we were just out playing. But I think that is why I like these. Outfits are not clean, neither are faces. Hair is not combed and I didn't ask for any smiles. This represents their attitudes almost perfectly. Isaac has been devouring any book we put in front of him- his mind never stops! We just cut Livi's hair and it is still just as crazy as ever but she is giggling and making us giggle. We had quite the round of sickness in the family and Caleb was looking pretty pathetic in this batch! He had SIX teeth come in all at once and ended up with a sinus infection so bad he had goop coming out of his eyes! Therefore, to save you from the green boogers- his sweet smile is in black and white. He is grinning like that because he was standing on the top of a slide. I still can't believe Isaac ended up in the ER before Caleb. (More on that in another post!) I turned around today and he was standing on top of a book shelf in my classroom grinning away. Motherhood is amazing and these three make it all worthwhile.

I love these photos. Photographing my grand kids is often the highlight of my week!!!

Books are good!! Stephen's new favorites are Geronimo Stilton and The Magic School Bus. I love that you are taking "im-perfect" pictures. Dirty faces and all and not all "staged" pictures. You do beautiful work! I know you'll get back into scrapbooking, you just have to wait until the kids get a little older.

It's been great to see all these new posts! I've had trouble posting regularly for the past few weeks as well. Sometimes life just is going too fast and furious to find time to blog. I'm hoping to get back to it soon, though :)

Your kids are so precious! I love all their expressions, but I must say your daughter just explodes with personality. Every part of her face communicates. What fun for a photographic mom! :)
