As I sit here and listen to the cold rain pounding outside, I am longing for a couple days ago when it was 90 degrees outside. Remember that? I am not a fan of cold. These images that the P family helped me create last July are helping me feel warm and sunny again. I absolutely love the colors in these portraits - everything happy and loving and fun. Just like their family. :-)

Sticking Together

This is the B family, the lovely family of Lindsey the photographer. We got some fantastic shots of her family and at the end decided to do some of her with each of her kids just because she's always on the other side of the camera. I am totally jealous. Thanks Lindsey for letting me entertain your kids (and your husband!) for an evening.

Focus on the Family

I vary backgrounds and poses so there are plenty of options. Sometimes I end up with more good stuff than I was going for, which was definitely the case with S&T. I don't know how you could choose between these and only end up with one. I guess that's why albums and wall collages are so popular right now. Anyway, I am at my best when I'm working with people I love, in a setting that I love (oh, and what a location! How I wish I lived closer to it so I could use it more often!). It really is a spectacular thing I get to do for my job. I can't thank you guys enough for being so generous, not only with all the chocolate and cheese, but also just in your friendship and loyalty. I can't wait to see your little family grow up behind my lens! :-)

Who Will Buy This Wonderful Morning? An Excalibur Portrait adventure.

When we were doing the conceptual work for this session, we talked about these little Ragamuffins loving classic musicals like Newsies, Annie, and Oliver. And although we had a lot of already-made pieces for the costumes, they still took many many hours to shred, age, and dirty. I love the end result almost as much as I loved spending an hour with these absolutely precious little children. They are just as sweet as they look - no Photoshopping trickery there! :-)  photo IMG_1856.png  photo IMG_1999.png  photo IMG_1947.png  photo IMG_1921.png  photo IMG_2081.png  photo IMG_2048-1.png  photo IMG_1923.png  photo IMG_2037.png  photo IMG_2089.png

I hope you have the happiest married life together - with your wild and crazy ways, I'm pretty sure it's not going to be difficult. Thanks for letting me stretch the limits of daylight and for just being you(s). :-) Love you guys -Kris
