And then there were the kids.... I have to admit, kids are my favorite to photograph. They are so uninhibited that they're just a blast to work with. And especially these kids since they were all so awesome and adorable (with amazing parents too).
First up were the incomparable Jolley girls. I have to admit that I'm a little biased here since they're my nieces but they are truly wonderful kids.
Then came Brody. The day that we picked for his shoot was so beautiful that I dragged my kids and a couple of their friends along. That combined with Brody and his mom's sheer awesomeness resulted in a photothon. It was so fun that I just made up my own word for it!
More Jolleys. More wonderfulness. More bias. 'Nuff said.
The Shute boys were the next day and they provided me with another one of my favorites compliments. When we're finishing up and getting in the car, the little one asks his mom, "When are the pictures?" It's a good shoot if the subjects don't even realize it's going on.
Then there were the Leo girls. Never mind the fact that they were such dolls, I loved that after 45 minutes they still weren't ready to finish our session. So what did we do? We took some more, of course.
The Morris kids were my last kids of 2011. Their mom is an old friend of the family so she wandered off to take a phone call while we took some pictures. I think that she was pleasantly surprised by their level of cooperation during our shoot. I wasn't though, her kids are super good kids.
Thanks to all these kids and their parents. I had a blast and I hope that they did too!!
