A boy and his blankie

A quick little blog post. This one jumped out at me.

I'm partial to kids and blankies. In my house they are called *baba*. This guy called his *blank*.

New camera test roll

A couple of new medium format cameras and lenses means a couple of new test rolls. Grabbed the nearest kid and away we went. Cameras and lenses are good. Work perfectly.

A couple of cute kid shots . . .

New hair and new glasses:

He draws on his face because it's *cool*

Also cool: Astroboy and homemade fingerless gloves.

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!!

Off they go . . .

And baby makes four . . .

A few favorites from this maternity/newborn sessioin. A couple I've posted before but not with their same session cousins.

A very excited big sister:



A page from their album. Big sister is in love.


It's time to start planning . . .


Listen, I'd like the summer to go on as long as anybody. The last thing I want to do is be accused of rushing summer away.

Trouble is that in my line of work it is already Christmas season. The fall is filling up.The deadline for sessions that allow for Christmas delivery of prints is Nov 2nd. I have precious few spaces left that fall within that deadline.

If you are considering a fall/Christmas session I encourage you to call/e-mail asap.

A few wonderful Christmas-Picture ideas:

-A lovely framed portrait of the kids makes a perfect gift for one parent to give to the other parent.
-A lovely framed portrait of all the grandkids makes a most excellent gift for grandparents. (consider sharing the cost among the adult children. This makes it a pretty reasonable cost considering the outstanding reaction from Grandparents on Christmas morning!).
-Older teen kids about to leave the nest would be hard pressed to find a better gift for mom and dad than a portrait of themselves.
-A pregnant mom with a Christmas baby would love a maternity/newborn session.
-A real family photo - finally!!
-Ladies - something a little saucy for your mate?
-For the more controlling recipient on your list a Gift Certificate for any of the above ideas (and more) ensures that the recipient can have more input over the actual photos.
-Your idea? I'd love to hear it!!
