And in order of greatness!
Big Sister DeeDee is so sweet. Always ready with hugs.
Big Brother...this kid is one smart cookie! Came in 8th in his entire class of 300+ students. And I just love this picture of him. He's so super cool don't you think?
Need a laugh? Look no further to middle brother.
Baby Sister...what can I saw about her? Another great kid. Youngest in the pack.
I added this picture, because I love the spontaneity of it.
I love this picture of the girls. Dee is looking straight on at the camera, Abba is super cool and then there is Mom...its just a fave.
Another favorite...I don't know why. It just stirs a smile within in.
Not to be outdone by their kids....
It took us several takes and changes of scenary to get this shot. Mom had saw some other photos that I had done in a similiar way...but of course all pictures are different, even if it is a similiar set up.
Getting into position.
plus these six....
What a fun session this turned out to be!!
But recently, I have been having problems with my feet. It could be a combination of a few things...age, wear and tear, but I have come to the conclusion that I need to sometimes wear tennis shoes (with some kind of arch support) as opposed to flat shoes, like flip flops every day. In the summer time, this is near impossible. I live in flip flops and sandles; its too hot to do anything else. But for the rest of the year, at least part of the time, tennis shoes need to grace these feet.
Remember, I have big feet. So to me, looking down to see my size xx encased in white leather is just not appealing. The other problem? The colors of tennis. While I don't want all white shoes, I don't want all black ones either. So I could get a combination of colors, but the color combinations for the shoes I am going to get are like white and neon green, or gray and hot pink (sigh)...
Haha! But its inevitable. So I will be purchasing, this weekend, a pair of Reebok Easy Tone.
I'm probably not getting this pair...because they are all white and all white with size xx = no good. But, they are pretty comfortable and wearing them around the store my mind was screaming, "Look at my big feet!" but my feet were saying, "aaaahhhhh, so nice."
That is until Summer hits...
or I need to wear a super cute outfit....
whichever comes first :)
So I thought to myself, what can I do today to make my dreams come true tomorrow?
Well, I don't know about tomorrow, well, why not tomorrow?:)
So today, I had a fabulous brand analysis session with The Joy of Marketing. It was very helpful to me. Starting out on my second year, I want to make sure I am stearing a clear course for my business that I am building and the brand I am trying to sear into the minds of those who meet me and photograph with me. So, there may be some changes coming. Good changes- change doesn't always have to be bad right?
I would recommend having an analysis done. Either by The Joy Of Marketing http://www.blogger.com/www.joyofmarketing.com or with another company that understands branding and marketing.
So that's what I did today, for tomorrow. But tomorrow is the actual Make Your Dreams Come True day. Hmmmm, I guess I will have to do some thinking tonight when I have dinner with my college roommate while she is in town :)
But for now, I would love to hear what you plan on doing to make your dreams come true this year....
This is a special time for this family...as a new brother joins the clan.
In 2010, I loved taking photos of the parents. These two are no exception.
One of my favorites from the session.
The set up was minimal, as the photos were of Harmoni and not my set up. Besides, it was neat to see what she would do with the elements and how she used them for the session. I know...she's just one years old, but this little actress is going places and I am happy to be on board from the beginning.
Harmoni has got so much personality. Her mother wanted me take a series of photographs that might go in a modeling and acting portfolio.
Love this series of shots.
I just put her in the case and she did all the rest...
