A Shoot to Share!

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of shooting a "secret" session with a family of three {4}. I put the 4 in brackets because the lady/Mother was pregnant with her second child and wanted to announce it in a special way to all of her friends and family. It was my complete honor to photograph her and her husband and son giving subtle hints in their photographs that they were soon to be a family of four. I had fun doing the shoot although it was a 45 degree day we managed to not freeze.

She planned on waiting until I got her disc to her then printing them and presenting them in envelopes to her family all at once, but she liked them so much she broke down and shared them all today via facebook :-) So I'm glad she was please with them and so happy for their new addition! Here is a sneak peak into the shoot:

The yellow tones in this would be great for Mellow Yellow Monday right? :D Also I'm going to enter this into Hollie's theme "True Love" this week over at Perceptive Perspective.

This is my Sweet Shot of the week for sure!

To see these and a few more you can head over to my Business Blog and check them out!

Now on Sunday I got to see my niece and nephew, Colton and Addy. You've probably seen this little girl over at her Mom's blog. They were born a mere 5 days apart and they are getting to where they play so well together. Here are a few pictures of them being their cute little two year old selves :)

Playing with your cousin is definitely an activity right? Well I'm using the photo above as my entry to Chelsey's Show and Tell this week over at Paper Heart Camera blog where the theme is "Activity". To see more go here:

And a big thanks to Chelsey for featuring my "Brown" themed photo entry last week! To see it, go HERE.

And I'm getting two birds with one stone here. This photo is probably familiar if you look at my header when you drop by. The theme at Trendy Treehouse this week is eyelashes and the theme at Allie Photography's blog is black and white. So here is the best of both worlds...a black and white photo of my son's adorable eyelashes!

Okay and lastly the theme over at I {Heart} Faces this week is "Hearts". This photo from a recent session immediately came to mind. Not only are they holding a metallic heart but if you look closely where her bangs meet his forehead it makes a heart shape there. Their noses touching being the bottom 'point' of the heart...do you see it? Or is it just me? LOL!
