{fun, giggles and a tired photographer}

i've photographed s(7yrs) and j(4yrs) a few times before and it's always a great time. they are 2 busy bees and keep me running and running, but it's so much fun.
i think we were all wiped out by the end of it :)
thanks j for dropping them off with me and letting us play for a while....
i seriously think that's the best way to do it with little ones.
plus, all the photos are a surprise to you!
enjoy your sneak peek. i hope you love them!!















i'll keep the family photos a secret in case you want to use them for christmas cards :)

PRECIOUS! They look very animated and happy! Two busy kids is a feat! You definitely pulled it off. They should be thrilled with these.

I have a questions .. if you are willing to answer {grin}.

Some of your photos have a beautiful glow/blurr to the background. I know about apeture but I'm wondering if you add some blurr to these photos or if that is how they come out of your camera. ie. #5 {little boy by tractor wheel} #12 {girl on tactor}

Thanks so much. I am such a fan of your work but live no where close enough to every be able to hire you.
