Tea For Two

She takes her hand. She watches over her. She loves her dearly.
She’s the big sister after all.

But in a moment, the full name is yelled out followed by “that’s mine!” She is still young herself…
a big little girl.

She takes her hand. She looks up to her. She loves her dearly.
She’s the baby sister after all.

And in a moment, tears erupt because big sister has taken off down the trail without her.
She wants to be big too.

Big Sister. Little Sister. Forever Friends. Bonded.

Christmas Time is Here Again!

November 17, 2011

Christmas time is here again! And you may be thinking, “But Auntie Mame, it’s one week from Thanksgiving Day now!” But, and maybe it’s just me, I “need a little Christmas, right this very minute.” Yes, I “need a little Christmas now.”

Plus, who can resist beautiful children in adorable clothes? Not me!

I’ve said it a million times before, but I adore these girls. I had such a wonderful time with these little ladies at the gorgeous Old Poway Park. It was a fabulous location and I can’t wait to go back again… maybe next time when the little lady doesn’t want to eat every rock and leaf in sight.  I’m so glad the weather decided to cooperate for us on Sunday.

Liz, I hope you love the pictures and they continue to bring you joy and memories for many more Christmases to come.

Tis the Season!

November 15, 2011

The holiday season is here and photo sessions are increasing in leaps and bounds. Here’s a sneak peek from Sunday’s session – expect the full post later this evening or tomorrow.

And let’s discuss the cuteness of the boots, can we please?

“All you girls stand up

Put your hands up
Come on lets rock
Gonna go all night
Gonna watch the dust fly
Show em what we got
Come on lets take a ride on top of the world
All you soul shaking heartbreakin little cowgirls”

Pear of Little Ladies

October 13, 2011

“There are moments in your life that make you, that set the course of who you’re gonna be. Sometimes they’re little, subtle moments. Sometimes they’re not.”

One of my favorite things about photographs is their ability to capture the little, subtle moments… and freeze them before they change. We remember the big moments – they might be a haircut or going to school or they might be learning to crawl and saying your first word. But, we may not remember exactly how her eyelashes fluttered when she slept or the way she looked beyond her own backyard into the world. Somewhere down the line, we look to photographs to remind us of those gummy smiles and those baby teeth grins.

I hope these photographs of your little ladies can do that for you. They’re beautiful, wonderful little girls and it’s such a blessing for me to get to watch and document them as they grow.

Sweet Sisterhood

February 13, 2011

I’ve never seen her more nervous or more cautious as when we ask her to hold her baby sister and pretend to sleep. “Just close your eyes,” we said. Very quietly and with as little movement as possible, she told us, “no.”  Her baby sister slept soundly on her chest – comforted and comfortable in her big sister’s embrace. She’s already an amazing big sister, at a very young three years old, and I’m sure she will watch over her sweet, beautiful baby always.

Last week, I previewed these two beautiful girls. Here’s the extended sneak peak.

Birthday Week

February 5, 2011

My boss’ family celebrated a birthday week this week. Her really adorable daughter, you know the one, turned three earlier this week. She’s such a funny, awesome little girl. Just a few days before her birthday, my boss had another adorable daughter. She is such a good, sweet little baby.

The pearls were her great-grandma’s pearls and you’ll see a rosary in an upcoming sneak peak that was great-grandma’s as well. This sweet little one is named for great-grandma and it was wonderful being able to incorporate that into the session.

I had so much fun visiting with them and meeting the new little one. Can’t wait to see you all again! Here’s a little sneak peek.
