She lives about an hour away, we have kids, and husbands, and crazy lives.  So when one of my dearest friends asked me to photograph her kids I jumped at the chance to see her!  Normally I would bring my kids so they could all play together but this time I wanted she and her family all to myself so I headed down South solo.

Let me introduce you to Eve

 Every time I see this handsome boy I ask how did I NOT get one redhead in my bunch???

Not fair

Sitting still is not Alex’s forte’ but he complied for just a few seconds so I could get these two together.

He’s not quite walking yet but he can still get from one place to another with his own method…

It’s the most hilarious/cutest darn thing that you’ve ever seen

Then there’s Eve.

She made my job very easy since…well,she took charge of the whole shoot.

 This is a girl who knows what she wants
