If you know me even slightly, you will know that the sun, on session days, is my mortal enemy.  I can’t think of a time where I have ever embraced or enjoyed having the sun shine when I was doing a photo shoot.  However, in spite of that little set back, I was able to work with these three beautiful sisters and enjoyed every second with them.  Not only are they stinking adorable, but they were naturals with the camera, as you can see.

Sometimes I think I have a great idea.  One that’s been done by others who have had success.  So I do it.  And I don’t have the same success that others do.  But then I think, what is success?  It’s one thing for one person while it is something different for another.  In the end, I did have success.  I was able to shoot a beautiful mama with her three, sweet babies.  I didn’t need an entire day filled with sessions to fulfill what I had set out to do.  Being able to spend a short time with these four was enough to make my day.

The second I heard her name I just knew it had to be from Anne of Green Gables.  One of my all-time favorite movies books 😉 (my kids judge me for preferring movies over books).

Probably one of the sweeter names I have heard in a while.  I love all of the older names and prefer them over new, faddish names.  Call me old-fashioned, I’ll take it.

Oh, and I was right!  Her mama said they got it from the book.  Points for me!!!

yours, mine & ours

What a beautiful family!  When you blend together two families, there are usually bound to be issues and kinks.  I’m sure there are some in this group as well, but when I took their family photos, you would have thought they had been together always.  And with a new little one on the way, it will give this couple a round number of six.  And it’s a girl!  Good thing, because big sis is a bit out-numbered.

It was quite a humorous session.  With 15 mph winds, a temp high of 45 and no sun, you can imagine the chill that was in the air.  But we made the best of it by keeping the cars running and doing shifts.  Mom and Dad, just kids, whole family, just boys, etc…  You get the picture.  And it didn’t hurt too much either that I had a package of chocolate sandwich cookies in my car.  Hey!  I know this brood and what it takes to keep them on my side!  I, like most, am not above bribery for a good shot!

These were taken on one of our last decent days before our first snowfall.  Wait!  Did I just say that?  Ugh.  Also with one of our last remaining fall-ish bushes.  I have done a lot of sessions over the last ten years.  And a lot of those sessions have been fun, heart-warming and memorable, but none so much as this one.

This couple was hilarious!  They were sweet, cute, understanding of my lack of Spanish comprehension and so, so patient when I tried to pose them.   I have literally never laughed so much at a session as I did at this one.  I think a close second would be my own with my husband because he cracks me up.  But then I was on the other side of the camera.  Anywho….  This session will definitely go down in the books as one of my all-time favorites.

But the most beautiful part to it all was the genuine love they have for each other.  I don’t speak a stitch of Spanish, but I didn’t need to in order to understand why they have been married as long as they have.
