J and his little sister C came to see me at the end of March. J didn't know it, but I'd photographed him before, when he was just learning to sit, and it was now his turn to share the experience with his little sister, who was just the same age that he was when I saw him last.
J some of you may remember, used to be featured on an older version of my website, and was the little boy in overalls whose close up face shot with somewhat crossed eyes and loads of drool made everyone oooh and aaah about how cute he was. Well, he still is, but he also shares the spotlight with his little sister, C, who is about as hammy as you can get. Her personality is no doubt emerging, but mom and dad already know what is ahead - loads of fun and giggles with this little one!
After all, she POSES!! This was completely not my doing, I swear! She literally took this pose, and then mom and I cracked up that she was so dainty!!
She reminds me of the Gerber baby....such a perfect little face. She should be on jarred food!
It certainly doesn't hurt that mom and dad are just the most fun couple, and are lighthearted and treasure their family images. Photography means a great deal to them, and capturing images of their children as they grow is a true treasure.
No doubt she is "daddy's little girl"...
We can't do a blog posting without posting J, can we??? Of course not!! He is my new best friend! Knowing his mom and dad were coming to order images today, he was upset that he wasn't invited...but I saw him later on when dad came to get their DVD slideshow that they ordered for themselves and Grandma, so I got a chance to spy my little bud ;)
What mom doesn't love an image of herself mothering...playing...loving, and being completely herself with her child. This was shot without mom knowing, and the result is pure and magical.
It was my pleasure to document this time for you, Kim & Troy, and I am sure these images will represent treasured memories for a long time ahead. I look forward to watching them grow up, and am lucky that you are also sorta neighbors, so I can still spy the kids in between sessions. All the best and thank you for entrusting me with your memories!
