terrific twos | sneak peek | little bits

August 24, 2011

what is this terrible two thing? yes two year olds are sassy. they are finding their voice. using their words a little. lots of tantrums.

but really it’s just a learning phase. they have so much going on inside their little heads but the mouths simply cannot keep up. they get frustrated that we can’t understand

what they are trying to say. goodness. how many times have we asked our two year olds “ummm sweetie what did you say?” and you hear “bluffin fat cappy fish” and since this was the THIRD time they’ve said it-you know good and well you have to pull the nod and ‘oh yeah’ move.

as moms, we often get pretty snazzy at translating though don’t we?

sally, “nid doos keep.” and you look at mom puzzled and she nods and says “oh she’s just asking you for some grape juice.”

aren’t you glad to have mom around to translate?? whew!

well one of my favorite things as a children’s photographer is to just get down and observe. especially with toddlers. they just want to know you are in their world. i don’t want them in mine. how boring is that? i’m already IN mine!

but following them around. seeing what makes them smile, laugh, throw me looks of puzzlements, the serious looks…and really just capturing them.

i really really enjoyed this session and not just because my star subject shares the same birthday as i do.

(but that is pretty darn cool i have to say!)

and we ended the day with some ice cream. it’s always fun to see what my toddling subject will do with theirs. some attack the top and chuck the rest. but Miss K totally went for the bottom first.

maybe she knew that’s where all the yummy chewy chocolate was hiding? mmm!

as always. i have the best time photographing little people. they are so fun- i just get pulled right in. thank you miss K and i hope you had the BEST birthday!

so i lost my first tooth | sneak peek

July 18, 2011

I featured her brother a while back. And I couldn’t NOT feature her too. Fair is fair right?

Losing your first tooth is a big deal and I love that she shared with me!

The toothfairy that visited her, totally needs to finish my house.

Money, a sweet little note…man! Our toothfairy slips a buck under the pillow and steals the tooth. 😛

Thanks Miss Sofia! Next tooth you lose- please leave a little note with your tooth sharing our home address so your fairy can swing by here. 😀

Sneak Peek | Mister N | Little Bits

July 25, 2010

Here’s a quick peek at Mister N. Almost 2, and ALL boy. A little bashful at first but he soon warmed up. I’m irresistible that way. 😉 I think just about every time he smiled or giggled my camera was pointing at the ground- the way of the toddler. 😀 To not be ready the same time you are. 😛

It was fun to have a boy session and fun to use a new lens. So…lots of images to follow. :)

What a fun & cute session!

    I’m so behind on looking at your pictures on facebook :( my computer likes to pick and choose times for me to be able to actually see them now, it’s frustrating and only happens with FB
