Love 'em

Here are my three kiddos... All with colds or the flu :( It's been a rough week and I don't think it's going to be much better over the next few days. David has had several opportunities to work late at his job, so I've spent a lot of time wiping snotty noses, and trying to survive the wonderful world of sick kids. Still, gotta love 'em! After play time in the bath tub, they decided it was time for a photoshoot with Cadence. I'll jump on most chances for 3 kids in one photo, so here it is :)

Stuck home

Since it's just that time of year again, I'm stuck inside while waiting for the colds to go away! Nana took Zeke, my oldest, overnight so Lex and Cadence played nicely inside. Lex even prompted me for a photoshoot! I couldn't resist, since he is such a challenge to photograph. He's such a ham! Here are a couple from my day inside with only 2 kiddos. Here, Cadence seemed to discover that she has a tongue.... Kept it sticking out for what seemed like forever! What a silly girl :)

I cannot believe how awesome my boys are with their new sister. For being little terrors, and always running, screaming, and pushing each other, as soon as Cadence is nearby, they both become sensitive sweethearts, and big helps for their sister. I'm always wiping snotty nose kisses off Cadence, and if I need a diaper, burp rag, or pacifier, either of the boys are very happy to stop watching a movie, or playing with a toy to serve their sister!!! What gentlemen!!! Now if I can only make that a 'full-time' gentleman, we will be all set :)

A Dog is a Boy's Best Friend

My little Lex LOVES dogs. I'm not sure how or when it clicked with him, but he finds a dog who will tolerate him, and he just hangs out with it. Tootsie is more tolerating then our Sheltie, Bella, so she had the priviledge of a companion on the last snowy day. Most often, our dogs are farm dogs and don't get the luxury of enjoying the heated house, but I felt bad for them as I saw them staring at us through the window as the snow was blowing outside. Excuse how shaggy they look, but I'd rather bathe children then dogs in this weather, so they have to wait until spring. :)

I've found out since the day we took Zeke home from the hospital, that Tootsie is a great babysitter.... best dog in the WORLD!!

And what proud brother doesn't show off his baby sister to a.... dog?

I'm hoping I'll have a future horseback riding companion! :) Or, we'll have to invest in a small saddle that can fit a dog...

Snow Day Fun!

What a beautiful snow fall we had here in Holland, Michigan! My boys wanted to try their new sleds out, so we did the 30 minutes of bundling up with snowpants, boots, gloves, hats, coats, neck warmers, etc... and headed out into the peacefully falling snow. Lex lasted about 2 minutes, before he wanted to go back in... Zeke had fun with papa for 20 minutes and learned how to sled down the hill AND take his own sled back up.

Look who's 4!

My little Zeke turned 4 on January 6. I can't believe it's gone so fast!

With this new year, there will be a 'NEW' look to our branding. As I'm trying out on Zeke's 4 year old shoot... Our style and prices will stay the same (deep breath from all our clients) :) but there will be several changes to our workflow and booking. Stay tuned over the next couple weeks as we notify you through our blog of some of the changes :) They are all good, and we hope the changes are to better your photography experience, your investment, and our time.

Best Buds

My handsome little men.... Zeke has finally declared Lex as his "best Buddy". Mr. Cuddles, (his bear) is still holding ranks as his best friend though. Ahhhh... finally they are at the age where they can really play together... :)

Aronson : Family Love

The day after Christmas, we had the priviledge of photographing the Aronson Family from.....all over the USA. The whole family was together for Christmas, and so it was a great opportunity for a Family session :) We didn't know what the weather would be when they booked in September, but it was beautiful weather for the young kiddos. We had a great time joking around with the group, and being re-inspired in photography. Sometimes my 'maternity leave' just seems too long :) Enjoy some teasers!
