Gavin and Cooper- Quad City Childrens Photographer

See the post below this one for more pictures of these 2 and their little brother and beautiful mother.

I couldn't resist posting some more of these 2 though!
Gavin and Cooper...

I love these 3 pictures below of Cooper.
Such gorgeous eyes and eye lashes!

Can you say handsome?!
This is the definition...

And I had to sneak just 1 more in of Erin with her 3 boys!
I love me a candid shot!
Look at Gavin lovingly gazing at his little brother, Quinn!

I got Mommy in a couple of the pictures and I couldn't resist starting with this one.
Do you think she has her hands full?
I think she has her hands (and heart) FULL of love!
Look at those 3
3 gorgeous, healthy boys who have an amazing family are who I got the pleasure to photograph today.

I can hardly stand the handsomeness!
We have Gavin (age 4), Cooper (age 2) and Quinn (age 6 weeks)...

The two oldest...

He is a doll!
Super cooperative, sweet and obedient.
He was a blast!

And then there is Cooper.
Super busy, curious, adorable and either silly or serious...I didn't get much in between with him.
He was addicting to photograph!

Can you say baby fever?!!
I can FEEL it!
Wow...little Quinn.
SUPER laid back, serious and gorgeous!
And I cannot believe this BIG boy is only 6 weeks!
He made my heart go pitter patter something serious!

These boys are blessed with an amazing family who I have the pleasure of knowing, but something tells me that their family are the ones who feel blessed!
Thank you for letting me photograph your stunning children!
I may be back soon with another post of your kiddos because I don't think I'll be able to contain myself!

Christmas Pictures: Quad City Family Photographer

Did a "mini-session" with the Poley family so they could have some pictures for Christmas cards.
Hope I'm not posting any they plan on using...and if I am, I hope no one who is receiving one is looking at this! :)
Seriously, they are an adorable family!

And Stone has grown so much!
He is the same baby that is pictured HERE.

Same big, beautiful eyes...a few months older.
And he fell asleep in my arms after our session.
I didn't want to let him go!

Landon is so much fun, I had to get a few of just him for his parents though he hasn't really changed much since I photographed him a few months ago.
I love photographing this family.
I love even more that they are my friends and I get to snuggle up to their little ones whenever I want to!
Love you guys!

Siblings: Quad City Children Photographer

You know those children that are just, plain, good kids?
You know, the ones that you think, "I hope my child is like that when he is their age."
Ya, these are those kids.
And GORGEOUS to boot!

And talk about EASY!
This session was just FUN...not much work to get these gorgeous shots!

And because I love so many of the're getting to see lots and lots of them!

McKenzie is 12.
Yes, you read that right...12!
Okay, okay...she'll be 13 in a few short weeks, but this doesn't look like even a 13 year old to me!
I think many of her shots could pass for senior pictures!

What a beauty she is!
Happy Birthday, McKenzie!

And then there is Emily.
The perfect age of 5.
If it wasn't weird to grab her and squeeze her and kiss that beautiful face of hers I would have.
But since that would be totally weird because I just met her today, I restrained myself.
I said to her little brother at the end of the session, "are you going to let me take pictures of you again sometime?!" He quickly answered, "no." And Emily piped up, "YES!"
Anytime sweet girl...anytime!

Ethan...the baby.
I was warned that he may be a bit shy.
Well, what 4 year old boy likes his picture taken?!
Start a game of "hide and go seek" by the trees and this little one was shy no more!
He was running around and giggling.
And when I was taking pictures of his sisters, he just couldn't stand not being in the shots!
He was lying when he said he didn't want me to take his pictures again, he totally wants me to!
Okay, well I'll just tell myself that in hopes that I'll get to capture his handsomeness on my camera again some day!

And I'll leave you with these.
Because really, I can hardly stand how cute they are.
Candid, genuine expressions.
Sibling Love.

Thank you guys for being so unbelievably cooperative!
And thank your parents for being so gorgeous!
