This sweet family welcomed their second daughter into the world just a few days after I captured these photos for them in a nearby park.
Lilly looks forward to sharing her beanie animals with her baby sister Abby.
Big sister Lilly was excited because she got to choose Little Sister’s shoes for some of the photos.

This clever saying was stitched onto a needlepoint pillow in Betty’s home:
“A dog has a master. A cat has a staff.”
I captured these snapshots last week when I visited Betty, who is healing well from a broken hip and surgery, and her H.S. friend. Thank You, Lord.
Betty and her cat, Chloe, are true besties! They adore one another.
I truly think each is a “staff person/staff furson” for the other.

and Baby, It’s Cold Outside were just two of the themes during this photo session with sisters R & R — they are such fun girls!
Their eyes sparkled and they played “Mary Poppins” when the wind gusted under their brightly colored umbrellas. Whoosh! Let’s have a tea party in the treetops! I actually thought we might! We laughed and laughed!
Instead, the girls and their mom and I agreed we’d all have hot chocolate with marshmallows once we got into our warm homes!
I count those pretty reflections in the puddles as bonuses in my photo-fun-day! Thanks, sweet girls, for playing along with me on a chilly winter day!

Delightful. That’s just one word I use to describe these seven- and thirteen-year-old sisters!
I had fun capturing Hanna and Paige and their dear mom and dad’s photos in the quaint French river town of Kimmswick last evening. Though it was a typical Missouri hot and humid day, they didn’t seem to mind the weather conditions. Maybe it was ’cause they had been bribed with ice cream treats?
I love the girls’ choices of shirts–Rock Star fit the bill! This is a SOOC shot … I’m anxious to play with PS CS4 to enhance their gorgeous blue eyes and do some cool textures for a variety of their pix.
Hanna, Larry, Gretchen, and Paige–thanks for the great time along the railroad tracks and for trusting me to capture your dear family! I already have more ideas for the NEXT shoot!
