The Easter Bunny Came!!!

The Easter Bunny made his annual visit during Claire's nap.  Here are a few photos (for my mother) of her search.

She is obsessed with dresses, and princesses, and being "beautiful".  She has been begging for a crown for weeks now, so the Easter bunny granted her wishes.

I love this little girl more than you could ever know

From her sweet little head

all the way to her teeny toes.

Bill & Kay

These are my adorable grandparents.  They were visiting all the way from Houston Texas.  A couple of days before their departure, my Grandpa called me and said that he would love some portraits of his sweet wife.  I happily obliged! We scheduled the time and place and were ready for photos!  The day came and when I saw my Grandpa, he said  "I could hardly sleep last night! I was so excited for you to take photos of Kay!"  I thought that was darling. 

It's not hard to take a beautiful photo when you have a beautiful subject with beautiful light.

My Grandpa the jokester always makes her laugh. 

This is the most adorable thing I have ever heard:
My Grandpa told my Grandma that he was so excited to have a beautiful portrait of her.  She said "Well why didn't you do it when I was 40?" And he stopped dead in his tracks, looked her square in the eye and said "Because you are more beautiful now than you have ever been!  And you weren't half bad when I married you at 16 and a half!!" 

Isn't she radiant?

Happy Birthday Queenie!!!

Today is one of my most favorite people in the whole wide world's birthdays! It's my Mama's Birthday! Isn't she cute?  I took this photo of her last summer at Crater Lake.  She is a queen and I hope she feels like royalty on her special day.  Love you Mama!

Danish Mama and children

Here is one more post featuring Baby Hannah, big brother Jonah, and Danish Mama Kathy.

Big Brother Jonah joined in on the fun too!

Isn't he adorable?

I have to tell you how much I enjoyed this shoot! Natural photos of a natural family in a natural setting (the home) with natural light.  It was so wonderful.  I am not too much of a fan of anything gimmickey (overly done props, poses, backdrops, and editing) so Kathy really felt my style and I'm so glad she suggested we do this shoot in the home.  That's how day to day life is, and that's how the memories will be, so that's how the photos should be.  They were so wonderful to photograph, and hopefully next time we can get Dad (who was away) in on the action!

Found: This Gem

You know that feeling when you haven't worn a pair of pants in a long long time and you reach in the pocket and find a $20 or even a $10 and it's like the best feeling ever?

That's how I felt when I found this photo I took of my Angel that I completely forgot about! See that angel halo!? She's an angel, and I love this photo.

A little something special...

This gorgeous gal wanted to do something very special and unexpected for her husband for their 10 year anniversary! (How sweet!) She wanted to show him that she's his, and his alone. This just goes to show that you don't have to be a "supermodel" to have the most amazing images of yourself for yourself and your spouse. They turned out beautiful, and tasteful.  Her husband is going to love these when he gets his leather-bound album of these gems on his anniversary!
