Well this summer has been HOT HOT, and the day of Cade’s shoot was no exception! Although it was toasty, Cade did a great job and still gave us lots of smiles. And when it really got warm, a few sips of water and he was good to go. This little guy is getting so big!

This one cracks me up because he looks like he is, well, cracking up!IMG_7297 copy

I love this one – it’s like he’s saying, “Please stop taking pictures of me, lady – I need a moment…”  :)IMG_7407 BW copy

This is my nephew, Cole – I can’t believe he is already 2 years old! The day of his pictures, we went outside and let him wander around on the trail behind their house hoping to capture some cute expressions. I think we succeeded. :) I love how little ones are so curious about everything outside, whether it’s a clump of leaves or a butterfly. Here is his sweet little face…

I’m not sure what he was telling us here, but I think this is so cute with his little finger pointing…IMG_6888 copy

My Mia

So this basically started out as an impromptu photo shoot after dinner one night.  The lighting in my backyard at the end of the day is amazing, and I had just gotten my new Shootsac lens bag that I had been eyeing for several months.  I couldn’t wait to take it for a spin, so I grabbed Mia and told her to get her shoes on – we were going outside!  It was the first time she hadn’t fought me about taking her pictures, and she had such a great time.  I got some of the best expressions from her, which was totally unexpected.  She was workin’ it in front of the camera!  I am so excited to have these and to be able to remember her for the way she is; her silly, inquisitive, dramatic little self.  This is, after all, the one and only reason I even started taking pictures in the first place – to be able to look back and remember my kids exactly as they were.

By the way, my Shootsac worked out great (it’s got changeable covers!). :) Oh, and it’s really hard to take a picture of yourself in the mirror. :)

Oh, little Nolan.  :)  Last time I took his photos he was such a little guy.  It was so sweet this time hearing his tiny voice – he is definitely growing up!  One thing that I definitely noticed is how well he listens!  He was so good while we were getting his pictures.  Fortunately we finished up before it started raining – although it was ready to let loose at any moment, it turned out to be the perfect morning.  Here is the little man… Nolan!
