Parents-to-Be with Twins!

One of the sweetest couples I know was recently blessed with twins. Here are a few of the images from their Beautiful Belly shoot a few months ago. She is absolutely glowing! So beautiful!

Family Photo Funday

This family found me through a United Way silent auction to which I donated a session last fall. They came to their outdoor session in Heritage Park with tons of creative ideas, energy and a knack for getting into perfect portrait formations on demand. They played baseball, tossed around a football, climbed a tree, and even caught some bass during our session. We all had a great time and I even overheard one of the kids say “This isn’t like the last time we had family pictures…this is fun!” I concur! This was one of my favorite sessions. =) Enjoy!

And now for something completely different…

Headshot of Doug Brown for Microsoft publication

Nope, no boudoir this time.  Here’s a recent headshot I took for my hubby. He won a sales competition and the photo, along with his story, will be featured in Microsoft’s October sales publication.  So proud of him!  :)

Precious little bundle

I just can’t get enough of these sweet baby feet…

New dads are the best, so protective, careful and head-over-heels.

Congratulations, to the new Mommy and Daddy! She is an absolute doll!

Sweet Baby

This beautiful new life graced the world on June 24. She is just barely one day old here.

Her proud and loving parents found that teensy toes and a tiny grip instantly captured their hearts…

Baby found that upset quickly fades to bliss in the comfort of Mama’s arms.


Sweet dreams, precious one…

Special thanks to this little one’s parents for allowing me into their lives with my lens when she was so brand new.  Please be sure to leave some comments to congratulate the new family!

Summer in the Neighborhood

It’s chock full of summer fun!

A Day at the Farm, Part 2

Here’s the final set of portraits from the Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead.

A precious, tentative smile followed by the expression that his parents lovingly call “The Stink Face”.
Duck, Duck, Goose, anyone?
Introducing the amazing, self-feeding goat…
On your mark, get set, GO!

And many, many adorable smiles.  :)

 I had a blast photographing this kiddo and his new farm friends. Enjoy your summer and don’t forget to Be a Kid!

XOXO,
Christa

PS – Hello.

A Day at the Farm, Part 1

We headed out to Deanna Rose Children’s Farmstead for my latest child and family shoot.

This is the kind of place that just makes you smile…

and play.

I am ever amazed by each child’s fascination with water…

and by the joy that this fascination brings to every parent, no matter how many outfits it takes in a given day.

Hmm…I wonder what else we’ll do today?

 

Look for Part 2 in a few days to find out!  In the meantime, take at least a few moments to enjoy summer as much as you did when you were a kid.

Much joy,

Christa
