The Croll Family

On Saturday, I shot the Croll family, and we had a blast! We know the Crolls from Monsanto where Kelly works and their kids go to daycare with our kids. In fact, their little C and our Drew are in the same room right now, and we think they are trouble makers together!

They were very flexible and open to suggestions on location so we chose the Botannical Gardens when we remembered there is free admission on Saturday mornings! Tim came with me with the kids, but quickly left us to our own devices! With 2 1/2 year old twin boys and an almost 1 year old, you can imagine that this was a challenging shoot!

Luckily, they did great! We kept their attention for an hour with candy, funny noises and lots of goofy faces. I hope the Croll family is happy with these photos; it was wonderful of them to trust me with this shoot!

Welcome Baby J

As you all know, I shot my good friend Melissa when she was pregnant, and I couldn’t wait to get my hands on her little guy for my first newborn practice shoot. He was a dream to photograph! He slept a lot, let mom feed him and then let ME put him back to sleep! The warm temperatures and noise maker we used probably helped, but I sure like to think I have the newborn touch!

He let me move him and pose him and just kept sleeping. I hope all newborns are this agreeable! :) Baby J is a doll, and I look forward to ‘practicing’ on him for a long time to come!

Bumps Are Beautiful

My good friends S & M are expecting their first little one and I offered (or asked, or begged…) to take some maternity shots for them. They were so kind as to indulge me! They were willing models and we had a wonderful time! Can’t wait to meet their little peanut! Burchette2 Burchette Maternity
