Oh the beautifully crazy, lovable M Family–how I’ve missed you guys!!  Seriously I had the most amazing & fun time this past weekend when you guys came out to the studio and we trekked off to the waterfall for a Marmalade Location session.  M Family…you guys rock my world.  Thank you for once again allowing me into your lives to capture images of handsome J and to meet little R and photograph her too.  On with the sneak peeks (while I go scratch some of these mosquito bites from this past weekend!  LOL)

Did I mention we had a "sword" fight at our session too?

Seriously guys it was great fun seeing you again!!  Up until this past weekend little J was still super little J to me in the photo that sits in my office above my computer.  Isn’t he ADORABLE here?

    love the sword fight and that location is soooo pretty

It was great to see the R Kids again this past week!  For those of you who have had an on location experience in the past couple of years, these kids may look familiar to you.   They are the subjects of the showcase canvas I take to sessions with me when I travel to Chicago, the suburbs or beyond.  The showcase image of these adorable sibs is a favorite shot of Marmalade Photography’s 2008 season, that session was so fun I was confident we were going to have a blast at this session.  I was not disappointed.

A big thank you to their mom, Sherrie, for bringing them out to the studio for another session.  It was so great to see you guys again!!  I love seeing how these kids are growing.

K loved the modeling with the umbrellas and the "wind" but this shot really shows the gorgeous color of her eyes.

    Stunning children, and great captures!

Hi all!  I’m still trying to play catch up from last week. 

The heat of last week was pretty intense and this cutiepie was such a trooper considering we all looked like we jumped right out of the swimming pool after our session.  I’m surprised my camera could function in that level of humidity!! LOL  A big thank you to her wonderful parents for bearing the heat and allowing me to capture these sweet, beautiful images of gorgeous A while she is still an only child (did I mention she is going to be a big sis?!)  Here are some sneak peeks for you to enjoy of your beautiful girl.  Thank you!!

    Oh what a sweet little one! She’s a beauty and so is your work. Your compositions are magnificent. Especially the last.

I had the pleasure of seeing a couple of my most favorite of little people a couple of days ago.  The day was ridiculously hot, sticky and humid, then the bugs came out!  How we managed to get so many beautiful captures in so little time is beyond me but guess what Beth?  We did! 

AnnaB Sid is growing like a weed.  I loved talking to her and seeing how her imagination is becoming such a large part of her life.  Little A is just so fun, running and exploring – Beth has her hands full – he is SUCH a charmer.  But don’t take my word for it, look at these beautiful kids:

He couldn’t wait to get up & go explore some more!

This was the most docile creature, he/she just hung out with a group of ducks during most of our session.

Beth, as always it was a pleasure seeing you and your beautiful kids, I love to watch your family grow.

    I got several emails about the black and white at the end – all these are edited with my Marmalade Colour & More action set at seethelightworkshop.com. The bw was achieved with the Negative BW + the Little Pinhole Camera.

  • Corey Sewell - August 15, 2010 - 3:28 pm

    Beautiful images! I especially love that first one!

  • Kristie Chadwick - August 17, 2010 - 3:29 pm

    Great images. I love the location.

It was a pleasure to see the G Family again this past week for an urban session out at the studio.  Sessions with boys…teenage boys in fact, are some of my favorites because they are always so fun and relaxed.  This session was certainly no exception.  I adored seeing how these guys have grown in the past couple of years and seeing their beautiful parents once again who are always so gracious and kind.

We had an amazing time and got some amazing images.  G Family – I adore you!
