He didn’t tell me how to live; he lived, and let me watch him do it.

I love family sessions.

I love watching siblings interact.  I love the glances that happen between mom and dad.  I love that while mom is comforting one, dad is tickling the other.

Happy father’s day to all the dads.  And love and thanks to my own dad.

What dad couldn’t be in love with these two…

And when one tries to escape the photo shoot, both mom and dad can be assured they have a qualified and willing back up….big sister!

Thanks for sharing your morning with me.  Enjoy your father’s day!

Warmly,

Anne

I had a blast photographing these two wonderful girls which will be featured on the with love from China 2011 Calendar.

Just like most sessions with 2  year olds, this little one wasn’t too impressed by tricks.  I tried to explain that I have kids, I like to play, I’ll dig in the dirt, do whatever you say…but he wasn’t interested in bossing me around.

So, I went with it and captured the smiles as he played with his mom and dad and some serious faces when I got too involved.  No matter, he was just as adorable as ever!  And, I just know he is going to make a super duper big brother.

caroline: Beautiful pics Anne! What a cutie too and I love his serious looks. You did a great job capturing what looks like to be his true personality!

Another wonderful family!  This mini session STARTED just as the sun was starting to set.  We played in the golden light which quickly turned to a coldish evening.  And, as we ended the session the moon was rising!  REALLY.  I even caught it in a few photos.  Thank you so much for shivering through our session.

Your kids are just adorable!

tara: thanks, Anne! They look wonderful!

Jennie Rader: Beautiful pics Anne! I think that family is beautiful too!

This little one reminded me of my first child…a bit reserved, maybe even shy.  But, with a little space and time the laughter and playing emerges.  And, it is so worth waiting for.  Loved meeting this family!

Thanks for spending some time with me for our mini session.

I have to admit, I felt like I was talking my own son a few times during this session…you know how moms are  ”just look at those gorgeous brown eyes!”  I hope I didn’t scare him too much…
