Early Spring Fun!

About 2 months ago I took my daughter to Nay Aug Park to explore and to jump in the puddles with her new rain boots. This is when I try to not be “the photographer” and I try to just go with the flow capturing fun moments with my girl. That is, when I am not walking in the puddles with her.

So, do not expect perfect lighting, perfect poses or perfect camera settings. Just a mom… having fun with her kiddo. Here are some pics from our day!

 

First a quick stop in the tree house.

 


Now it is time to look for puddles. There were not many here but running in the water is fun.

Checking out the beach chairs.

I call this look the “Mom, not ANOTHER photo” look.


A photo merge of Lucy running, stopping, and then running again, through her first puddle.


A soggy stop at the pavilion. I really love this pavilion and plan on shooting here more this summer. Even though she reminds me all the time that she is a big girl, she still looks so tiny here.

Look mom, an acorn cap!

Then, we found a larger puddle.


A larger puddle means… water in our boots and mud on our pants.

And, an even larger puddle.

Treading carefully.

More water in her boots.

Time to JUMP!

And… JUMP…

And…SPLASH!

She looks so sweet here. So peaceful. My little angel.


Checking out the “damage”. Boy, did she have a lot of water in her boots. But, it was a fun day!

 

I hope you enjoyed looking at photos of our day. Now, get outside and capture some memories of your own!

An Egg-cellent Day

In the mix of capturing memories for other folks, I often forget to take photos of my little girl. Well, other than with my cell phone.

We took the time one afternoon to get my daughter dressed up in her Easter dress and to just have fun in an open field. I love these photos and will cherish them as she gets older. Enjoy!

Before we left, Lucy wanted a few photos with Maggie. But, in this photo, you can see Maggie snubbing me too.
Even though they are only a few shots in front of our Rhoda… they are still sweet.


Just a tad windy.


Maggie is so gentle with Lucy. She has been keeping an eye on “her baby” since she was born.


Kisses. I can just feel the love.


Hint: when you are trying to take Easter photos…you shouldn’t start by giving your child a basket of plastic eggs. Even if you tell them they are empty…they still need to check.


Always posing…


I see Mr. Bunny!


My daughter loves “Despicable Me” and actually posed while saying this to me.


Now, time for some field shots.


This is her princess pose.


And of course, if she is posing like a princess…she needs to start singing. Since you can’t hear her, it went like this.. “Let it Go! Let it Go!…”


She dropped and then found an egg. I love her face in these two shots.



All smiles for mommy.


Sometimes a little bit of wind is a good thing.


Little Miss Attitude.


Singing again…



Look mom, I can fly.

Easter Fun with Four Little Ones

I had the privilege of meeting up with this beautiful family the other day to shoot some Easter photos.

It was a bit chilly but we still captured some fun shots.

 

Easter outfits and Easter bunnies.

I just love photographing siblings. How sweet are these two!

Now, it’s time for the little ones. Two little twinnos in baskets…with HATS!!!

Have a Happy Easter!!!

Snow Day Fun!

A small snow storm over the weekend created a white canvas for some silly snow photos.

My daughter…LOVES the snow!

My dog, Maggie, could not wait to get back in the house.

I feel the same as Maggie… counting down the days until Spring!

Shoveling
Lucy being silly

Working hard
Loving the snow
She has a habit of shoveling the snow back on to the sidewalk. Sorry daddy!

This toothy smile always makes me laugh.

Now it is time for a silly face!
