things i learn

i feel there is always something to be learned from every session. sometimes it is technical, such as lighting or settings. other times, it is small, simple things. for example…

i learn that there is always a crowd pleaser in every family…betcha can’t guess who in this family…

i learn that as a mom of three boys, i get my fix of girls by photographing little beauties like her…

i learn how easy it is to be baby hungry when i hang out with little ones like this…

and i learn how to contain twin boys for family pictures! i love these little guys!

    Ok, so I was totally loving the compostion on the first pic and thinking…what a funny little guy. Then as I scrolled down, I thought those kids are so cute and they look really familiar…I love them. Those pics rock…but I am a little biased, being my sis and her darling family and all.
