The Smiths

This sweet little family was a pleasure to shoot and not only because of their great look, but because of how sweet they were through the process. It's clear that they truly love one another. Patrick and Blake have been longtime sweethearts and their love has brought about two of the most unique children. If I never believed in a typical "Irish" look, I'd be sure to convert quickly with just one glance at this group. Tiny but spry, twinkly eyes and that unmistakable red hair made for the most fun in shot after shot. Big brother Carter is full of mischief and charm but definitely a loving protector of his baby sister Camilla. I have a feeling she's got just as much of his impish ways in her as well but may get away with a little more because, who can resist that darling face? All in all, it was a great morning and our hour together flew fast by but not without a few sincerely fantastic photos- at least I think so, but don't take my word for it. Sit back and relish these for yourself.

Wallace Farmer turns 7!

Wallace and I sat in my car waiting on the rain to pass so we could get started on his 7yr. photo-op. While I let him have the iPhone so he could "beat my scores" at a variety of games, he chatted me up on everything from his baby sister to school, from his latest fishing adventures to how much he would miss me when I left Columbia. Needless to say, the latter left me with quite a lump in my throat. Wallace Farmer is a sweet, semi-shy, impish little man with a million questions always running about his brain. Working with him is always fun as he is forever offering me a bevy of new faces and poses to work with whether it be Superman, Spiderman or just his own serious or silly moves. This is a truly great kid!

Jane-Claire turns 5!

I can do little more than let these photos speak for themselves but I have to say that it has been my sincere pleasure to be a part of this sweet baby girl's life from the beginning. What a gorgeous but sassy and sweet girl she is - I love her dearly.
