    I Want HUMMUS! {Birthday Outtakes}

    Big Brother Antics {Outtakes}

    Posted on June 17, 2010

    I love watching kids interact together. Especially big brother’s and little sisters. :)





    Seriously, how cute can two kids be? How blue can two kid’s eyes be? How blonde? How well behaved? I was so excited when Brooke, a very old friend, asked me to photograph her kids. We hadn’t seen each other…Wow…in 5 years. Can it be that long ago? Issak as a baby. We spotted each other at a stop light in “the valley”. We pulled over to say hello. Really, I think that was the last time. Thank goodness for Facebook! LOL (Brooke told me when she told the kids about meeting “old” friends, Issak thought “old” as in granny old. LOL ;) )

    Griffith Park was our destination. The merry go round. The trees. The gorgeous blue sky. The great outdoors. And for Ainsley? The train. When I asked her favorite thing to do? Ride the train. When I said, OK, your turn to pick a spot. Her reply. The train! And when I asked her what her favorite animal was? The horses. Why? Because they were next to the train! ;)

    I think you will agree these kids are absolutely stunning. Inside and out. Thanks Brooke for asking me to photograph them. I can’t wait for you to see the rest. I’ll email you when the rest are posted. Until then, enjoy your fairy princess and handsome young man! (And now, looking at all the photos, I can’t believe it. Issak is a carbon copy of John and Ainsley, the spitting image of you!)









    I can’t believe it! Grace is two years old. It seems like yesterday that she was a teeny tiny baby. You may remember the gorgeous blued eyed girl from way back when. What a cutie pie! I know you’ll agree. I had a hard time picking my favorites for the sneak peek. There were so many! Not only is Miss Gracie gorgeous, but all her little toddler friends were equally as adorable! So I had to pick a spread of just Grace and then one of the cute kids.

    Thank you Steph and Chris for letting me be a part of so many milestones in Grace’s life. It’s an absolute joy to photograph her. (Even when she burst into tears and told me, “Buh, Bye!” LOL Gotta love being dismissed in such a dramatic fashion. ;) )

    I’ll email you when the rest are ready. Until then, enjoy the sneak peek. (scroll down to see them all! First Grace, then the other kids!)
