A Portrait of Friends

Recently, I was honored when two of my closest friends endulged me and let me photograph their little ones. We set up our photoshoot last fall and we had such a good time. We had originally wanted to shoot at the church down the street with the really cool door that I used for Preston's photoshoot. Unfortunately that very morning of the photoshoot I drove by the church and they were in the process of replacing that door with something completely different. I was so disappointed. I loved that door! Fortunately my friend Micki suggested the Catholic church in town. It doesn't have a really cool weathered door, but it has a lot of photo oppotunities.

It was so much fun playing professional photographer for the day. These girls are all just beautiful. I hope that they let me do it again soon. Now that I'm not 8 months pregnant I'll be able to get around a little easier.

I only have a few of Preston as I was trying to focus on the other little ones. But here are a couple. He was much more happy playing in the leaves than getting his photo taken anyway.

This is Kylie and Maya. Maya wasn't into having her picture taken that day but we got a couple of good shots. This first one is my all time favorite of the whole shoot.

This is my friend Melissa and her family. Her girls Dakota and Cadence are just precious and so photogenic.

The pictures are adorable but I am a little partial to the ones of Preston. Didn't see any of Connor. You and Missy both have a talent with picture taking. I'm not sure where you got it.

Wow! Wonderful work! Do you use actions? And if so, which ones? The dark edges are really nice.
