Little A posed for calmly for us, and Little B kicked so much with excitement it was laughable trying to get his picture in low light circumstances. These two are twins--8th months old--but still have that newborn look. Aren't they sweet! I miss them already.
This was an experiment that worked! I created these images of my beautiful niece in her home by window light, with a piece of white fleece, as fill, to lessen the ratio of light to shadow. I used a trouble light as a strip light on her hair, to provide separation, and to lighten up the wall behind her. Love the warmth in these images and how it compliments her hair and skin.

This is one fun little boy with personality plus! I adore this child. Maybe I didn't get the tomatoes canned today, but we got some precious images to remember for a lifetime. Mom was a great assistant and it was her idea to capture her son playing with his grandpa's car that he had played with as a child. Love it!

I love these images of my beautiful granddaughter, and am so grateful to master photographer, Dave Labrum, for taking them on the spur of the moment when the weather wasn't cooperating for me to take her to the place I had planned. If it wasn't for this sweetheart, I wouldn't have ever known about the Hagerman Horse or that is is thought that camels originated there, as well! Who would have thunk.

At long last! Master photographer, and friend, Dave Labrum, took these images of my son that I so appreciate. I'm experiencing what it's like to be on the other end--the receiving end of having priceless prints of a family member. Thank you so much, Dave. I'm deeply grateful.

I'll post the most recent image of our Love Bug, but because I was feeling nostalgic I wanted to post some earlier images of her sweetness. These images were created after looking at prints by Zula Kenyon--drawn and painted in the 1920's. She is famous for her bluebird series--so I even took an image of this little granddaughter with a bird in her hand. Very fun stuff. Hope you enjoy. This type of setting fit this Love Bug perfectly because she is such a feminine, delicate, sweet girl.

Well, I have a grandson that loves to play catch as much as I did when I was growing up. I may not be as good at baseball as I used to be, but we both agreed there's nothing like the sound of the ball hitting that leather! We should have skipped the beach and found the perfect setting for a boy with his glove. Next time, slugger!

I love that we captured these varied expressions. That last confident look is what he gave me when I finally sang his favorite song right. "I'm proud of you, Grandma," he said. We had fun playing cars on the little mat that looks like a town. That's when he told me I was his best friend. It doesn't get any better than that.
