Family...4 months later | Yorktown Family Photography

I promised these guys I wouldn't blog about this shoot until after Christmas... :) Well, it's after Christmas!

Back in September my friend Whitney contacted me and set up this shoot as surprise for her mom. Her brother and his daughter were going to be in town briefly and she wanted to get some pictures of the whole family. It was going to be her Christmas gift :)

Now that Mom has seen her gifts and has her pics hanging in her home, I felt like it was finally safe to blog a few of my favorites from this September shoot.

The weather was just starting to get chilly... and as I sit here looking out my window at several inches of snow... I'm smiling because I know that, soon enough, it's going to be beautiful picture-taking-weather again :)

Here we go.

Meet Mabel...


This little one is so full of spirit, she's just a joy to work with. Naturally photogenic and very much comfortable in front of the camera, we had a great time together!


And this is Mabel and her Daddy... you guys know how much I love Daddy/Kid pictures... this is another of my favorites. I think it's the color...


No! No wait... No this is my favorite.


And here's the whole crew.


And Whitney and Mabel... together... love this one too...


But this, I think, was my favorite from the session. I should say it's my emotional favorite...for sure it's not technically perfect and the baby's not looking at the camera (he was seriously sick of me by that point), but it speaks to me. I think maybe... because when my kids grow up... I'd love to have a shot like this... all of them with their kids and spouses... all together... happy and successful. Content.

Merry Christmas Whitney's mom! You've done a great job with your two kiddos...they are beautiful and gracious and great parents themselves :)

Until next time,

~ K

Cassidy | Hampton Baby Photography

This morning I had the pleasure of playing with gorgeous little Cassidy. At three months old she's not the curly, sleepy newborn that I'm used to working with, but... I think ... I have to say... I might like this age a little better!!

She was alert... she smiled... she played.... ** Sigh ** It was wonderful! Coming from a mom of two boys, working with this little girl was just heaven.


Doesn't she have the most beautiful blue eyes?!


She did a little sleeping for us...


...but more time awake and smiling and gurgling and talking...!

Thanks mom for coming over to play!!

Until next time,

GIVE.

A few facts:

* Haiti is the poorest nation in the western hemisphere...

* BEFORE the earthquake six days ago, over half of Haiti's inhabitants DID NOT have access to clean water. Imagine now...

* People are fighting and children are being trampled, over access to food...

* Buildings were still crumbling five hours after the initial quake...


Haiti's Earthquake Destruction: TIME Exclusive Photographs



Whatever motivates you.. if it's the facts... or the images... it doesn't matter.

Just give.

A few dollars. A few hundred dollars. A few thousand dollars.

Just give.

Noah's Hair... round II...

So. If you've been following this blog for a while... (see this post) or if you're my friend on FB, you may have heard tell of this...

...the fact that my husband thinks he's a barber... when he's SO not...

Many of you have been asking for pictures. Here you go:



I know, I know... you'll say, "It doesn't look baaaddd!! He's cuuutte!!"

Yes. Yes, I know this. (If you could see me now, I'm pouting. Like a 2nd grader. I'm pouting). But his hair was so toddler and so fantastic and it just fit his little personality and spirit... and now it's gone. It's gone.

It's no big deal to men... to dads. But this is my baby. My last baby. That was his baby hair... and I loved it.

So.

I'll survive. It's just hair...

But still...
