Holiday kids

Well, this is my most favorite time of's my busiest, as I am sure it is for most, but definetly my favorite. I got to be at home for Thanksgiving and do a couple of photo shoots in between indulgence of turkey and pumpkin pie... loved it all! Now, I shouldn't have favorites but I am slightly parital to my niece (who is only 6 but going on 21) and my nephew (who makes me laugh often with his 3 year old verbage). Maggie has had my camera in her face since she was 15 min old and Sam almost as much. It's kinda sad when they ask "Auntie A, did you bring your camera home?"....when my response is "no", they respond with cheers and clapping and dancing..... whatever, they really like it.
Well, with bribes of "Auntie A's special chocolate"... aka "Hershey's kisses"... I got some great smiles and good cooperation. Maggie asked me afterwards if she would be my "role model" on the computer, to which I said "Yes, you will be a model on my blog" and as for Sam... well, we are sending a photo of him to a talent agent... we are sure he looks like (and sometimes acts like) a cross between Dennis the Menance and Kevin from the movie Home Alone.
I couldn't love them anymore if I tried.

Eyelash envy

If you have never been to Gentry's Farm in Franklin... you are missing a treat! I know people that go there every fall to pick out pumpkins and enjoy the beautiful fall surroundings and they love it! I finally checked it out for myself...a friend of mine is related to the Gentry's and so we headed out there to photograph her son Brady. Apart from his cool brown high-top vans, Brady has the most beautiful long eyelashes... probably the longest I have ever seen on a kid. Here are a few shots from his session!

Oh the weather outside is frightful and the ...yeah

So it is late! My eyes are burning! Why am I up then you ask? B/C I really love what I do! I have been blessed with many photo sessions lately and loving every min of it.
A dear friend and old roommate called me a few days ago informing me that she had moved just down the road from me and she had 3 beautiful girls who needed their photograph taken. Well today was the day and we had hoped to get outside for a few min but no, it was just too cold! So, we stayed in and stayed bundled and had fun. They just don't get much cuter than this....

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Mom is sooo right!

So, can I just say that being a photographer I get to be around some really REALLY cute kids, and some really beautiful/handsome people... it's like constant eye candy.
I have this one friend of mine, Mick, who has been a good friend for many years. My mom has ALWAYS said "Oh, Mick is soooo cute... Mick is sooo handsome, blah blah blah". Well, I did some photos for Mick and I don't know if I just haven't been paying attention or what but I can say this... MY MOM IS SOOO RIGHT! Mick is "a hottie"....I rarely like to admit when Mom is right but when I confessed and showed her the photos, in her ever so humble way she said "Told YA"!
