Week Nine

Week 9

Week 9-1

Daddy’s idea of an igloo developed into an awesome tunnel! Hurrah for a combined 10″ of snow this week!

Week 9-5

That night Daddy was working overnight and Liam swore he saw an elephant out his window. So he ended up in bed with Mommy.

Week 9-6

The Elmo trance. Affecting two year olds everywhere!

Week 9-4

Liam was standing on his bed looking out his window after naptime. So many imaginative things take place outside that window.

Week 9-2

Charlotte has a special attachment for her Grandpa Griffith. I think the feeling is mutual.

Week 9-3

Charlotte turns seven months old this week. She no longer likes to be held or contained. She insists on scooting and crawling looking for anything to chew. I think her first tooth is on it’s way!

Week 8-1-3

My dad made this little kitchen set for my sisters and me.  We loved it! Now that Liam has shown so much interest in cooking and pretend play, we asked to borrow it. He enjoys it so much! He puts on his little apron and says, “I makin’!”

Week 8-5

We made a trip to Indianapolis this week to visit Mema and Popa Hughes. Liam is so blessed to have such a nice Popa that loves playing with him. :-)

Winston

Week 8-6

“The Monster at the End of this Book”

Week 8-4

Week 8-7

I normally have the advantage of grocery shopping alone. But I decided to bring Liam along to practice his “store manners”.  I love individual, quality time with this little dude.

Week 7-1

Week 7-2

Charlotte loves making noise! Liam was also enjoying this moment with us until he realized that I had my camera remote in my hand. So of course he had to take the picture.

Week 7-5

I really enjoy my work space in our great room. I wish I didn’t have to spend as much time as I do on the computer, but it’s nice to be with the family while I work.

Week 7-3

I bought Liam a brand new stash of craft supplies this week. So of course we had to make Valentines! We sure enjoy Daddy being home more now that he is working the night shift.

Week 7-4

Nearly every Sunday we make a trip to see my parents and younger bother and sister. Throughout the week Liam is always asking if it’s the day we are going to see “Gampa and Uncle Isaac.” I love that he enjoys playing outside there. It bring back so many memories of my childhood.

Week 7-6

Charlotte Quinn – Six Month Photography Session – Louisville, OH

This little lady is my daughter Charlotte Quinn! This big girl just learned how to sit up, just in time for her six month session. She can also squeal, growl and is very vocal! Her favorite thing to do is to watch her brother while she jumps in her bouncer. Her newest favorites are mashed bananas and sweet potatoes. Charlotte is such a precious girl and is so sweet and content. She is such a blessing to our family!

For her session I decided to splurge a little. I want to offer more simple studio sets that focus more on the subjects. The romper and headband are props that are available for use. But the pearls are her mama’s. They were a gift from my grandmother on my 21st birthday and will someday be passed on to her. She is just trying them out for size.

Emily and Mike’s Winter Engagement Session – McKinley Park, Canton, OH

This sweet couple is Emily and Mike. Emily contacted me about having pictures done with her boyfriend while they were both on military leave. They serve in the Navy together on the same ship in Japan. Emily is from Wyoming and Mike is from Louisville, OH. But Mike secretly had other plans. He had planned on using this session to propose to Emily. But the night before while they were watching the Super Bowl game he had the ring with him and couldn’t wait any longer. So had ask her to marry him and she accepted! So our mini winter session turned into a mini engagement session.

I just want to mention what troopers these two were. We took this session at 9 am, the temperature was 12 degrees and the windchill was -1 degree! We could only shoot about 10 minutes at a time before they had to bundle back up for a few minutes. But I think the freshly fallen snow and beautiful morning light made it all worth it!
