Capturing Life's Fleeting Moments…

Boys Will Be Boys! M Family Sneak Peek! July 15, 2008

Sunday morning I had the pleasure of photographing the “M Family.”

The session was set up to for “M’s” portraits but we also were able to include brother “R” and Mom & Dad into the session.  I really enjoyed the session so much.  Mom and Dad were so great to work with and they have a beautiful family and such a lovely home. The kids were full of energy and fun to work with.  Their smiles were genuine and filled with pure joy.

“M” was very shy at first and wanted his buddy Elmo to be included in the session with him.

We asked brother “R” to join in the shoot, in the very beginning, hoping that would make “M” more comfortable.

Look at the eyes on these handsome fellas!

And you can see the genuine love they have…

Slowly…Jo Ann, myself and Mom & Dad convinced “M” to let Elmo hang out on my side of the camera and Elmo became my photo director for the duration of the shoot ( LOL! see his eye balls and his red head? 🙂 )





And will also be perfect little gentlemen as well!

Those eyes are outrageously beautiful!

I can’t stop smiling while I edit this session!

How could you not break into a smile when you see this happy face?

It’s a’s a plane…it’s “M”!!!

That’s all for today!  More to come!

    As the “mom” of these two boys, I am gleaming as I look at these pictures. I know these are only a sample of the wonderful shots Jenn took on Sunday. Jenn was such a natural in getting my little guy to become comfortable with having his picture taken…..As you will all see in some of the later photos, he becomes quite the “model”….Thanks Jenn for the fantastic work and I get wait to see the rest!
