Beautiful Family - Quad Cities Family Photographer

I was so excited to photography this adorable family last night. Samantha is someone who frequents our home as our baby's teacher. Her work with him has been so important in his developement and she is part of this "super team" he has surrounding him to help him grow and develope in the best way he can. We owe Samantha so much for loving and caring for our baby and I was thrilled to be able to meet and photograph her family. She and I hit it off from the start. She is fun and laid back and that's just how the photoshoot went!
Adam was a trooper as well...I've been blessed with a string of very cooperative and willing husbands as of late...he was one of them!
And Eden...oh Eden.  She was in love with my camera...like wanted to TAKE the pictures.  I loved her.  I totally would have taken her home and kept her forever...such a sweet little girl!

At 14 months old, this one is INTEPENDENT!  It was so fun chasing her around and snapping pictures of her.

Yet again, I left the shoot feeling like I NEED a daughter. ;)

So grateful to have Samantha in our lives and in our baby's life.  We look forward to working with her as he grows and developes and hopefully I can talk her into taking pictures of her adorable family again!
 Thank you Samantha, Adam and Eden for a fun hour downtown!  And thank you even more for not wearing your Penn State gear!
Go Hawks... ;) ;)

Supermodel Sisters - Quad Cities Children Photographer

Oh how I adore these 2 girls!
Delaney (now 10!) and Olivia (age 7) have been in our lives since Delaney was 18 mos old.  I can't believe how time has flown.  Their family is like my family.  We adore these girls and who wouldn't?!

They are as sweet and well behaved and they are adorable!
And let me tell you...they are a DREAM to photograph.  I could have walked downtown with them all day just taking their pictures and they would have been willing participants!

Olivia has the most adorable freckles!

How do you wake Lady GaGa up in the morning?
P-P-P-Poke her face, P-P-Poke her face!
That was the joke Delaney was telling Olivia in this one!
I love it because it created one of my favorite shots of the session...

And seriously, I DID NOT pose them this way, they just did it.
Like I said, dream subjects...

And then I took a slew of photographs of them just telling them to pose like the super models they are.
That's when their personalities came out for reals.
Olivia's "pose" was so fitting!

And Delaney...much more mature and subdued...fitting as well.
Love it...

We were all thrilled to find this lovely painting to have them pose by.
Sunflowers are their momma's favorite! :)

Okay girlies...now let's work on talking your parents into moving here.
Okay?  Okay!
