8 is GREAT!

A great age for having pictures taken that is! Paige and I had so much fun together pretending that she was a beautiful maiden in a garden dreaming of her prince charming or transforming into the lead in the play Oklahoma! 
Mid-way through the session she was really getting the hang of this model thing and started coming up with some of her poses all on her own! We just had so much fun playing. 
Congratulations Paige-y on your recent baptism! Your Heavenly Father loves you and is so happy with the decision you have just made! 


Now here is one cute and very active little girl. I must say that 1 yr olds are a lot of work but they sure are adorable. 
I, for whatever reason, just love this shot. I think it is a more abstract looking picture and I love the way the shading is on her back and face. 
Isn't she beautiful! I love this portrait of her with those little eyes. Just a perfect little face. 



Little boys are so much fun! I just can't get over what a blast this little guy and I had. We played in the grass with his soccer ball, baseball, football, and basketball. He giggled and laughed as we had him play with his little fishing pole and then we pulled out the infamous bubbles! 
It was such a change of pace from all the frills and ruffles I had been photographing lately. Not that I don't love little girls (I was one, how can I not love them!) But little boys are a new and exciting experience for me. 
Well with out further adieu, here is Britton...
He had his own ice cream cone for the first time - at first I am not sure he knew what it was because he pulled some pretty funny faces but he got into it in a matter of seconds!This is one of my favorite! Peter thinks he looks like Cronk from Emperor's New Groove. I had to put this one in because it makes me laugh so hard every time I look at it... little boys pull the best faces!
