It was so great to see little Santi again. He is most adorable! That grin is simply contagious.
When I look at this shot I think “Yes Santi – I do want to sneak you in my camera bag and take you home with me!”
Welcome! My name is Doni and you have now found yourself in my little part of the blog world. This blog serves multiple purposes. I am first and foremost, proud mama to Tanner, Ty, Tori and Troy. They are priority number one and many of my blog posts are devoted to them – “Mama’s Diaries”. In addition to keeping my plate full with being a SAHM and homeschooling, I am also a photographer. I decided not to separate my personal and business blog so mixed into my personal blog posts are also client sneak peeks for Live Loved Photography. Please visit www.livelovedphotography.com if you would like to see my portfolio. Thanks for visiting!
This is 7 month old Reagan. She was such a smiley little one. Even Jim couldn’t help but grin away at her the whole time he was reviewing her gallery (my husband single handedly runs my IT department and is my batch auditor).
She especially loved pictures while being held by mom and dad. Her little personality really shined through when safely cuddled.
Reagan’s mom was hoping for an organic and simple backdrop that would serve as just an accent to the beautiful Miss Reagan. I think the AZ desert in the fall did a mighty good job.
She was working the camera wasn’t she?
So glad I get to see Reagan again in a few months for her one year shoot!
Miss Kierstin is one year! I sure hope she comes back for her 2 year pictures because I am going to miss this family! After doing newborn and baby pictures for both Kierstin and her big brother, I have seen quite a lot of these two in the last three years so I might have Easton and Kierstin withdrawals in about six months. Could she be any cuter?
The top shot in this trio is the MONEY SHOT! We have another MIGHTY girl on our hands. No wolf was going to be her undoing! She was going to beat him to the punch and bite first!!! You just can’t stage these things. I was so grateful I snapped that shot off as she went in for a bite. Love it!
And another money shoot! You cannot ask a 1 year old to smile and point at her 1 year chalk board. She just did it all on her own. Perfect.
Miss you already Easton and Kierstin!
Isn’t she a precious one? I am such a big fan of those wide eyed and serious expressions on babies (and children too). So much soul in their eyes.
Thanks to all this rain, we have had some serious green in August in September. So beautiful for us desert dwellers.
Sunrise comes pretty early in September (but even still, little ones seem to prefer it to sunset sessions). Gave us the perfect opportunity for a sweet capture with Daddy.
I could have watched big sister Victoria all day. Everything she does is adorable.
Miss Valentina’s favorite place? In mama’s arms. No doubt.
It’s pretty obvious where Valentina and Victoria get their beauty from. Beautiful family.
See you all again in a few months for Valentina’s one year! Yeah!
I love the name Eden. It was on my middle name list for fourth child. Wouldn’t have worked real well for Troy though. :) And I love THIS little Eden too. She was one of the most beautiful newborns I have ever seen and now a gorgeous toddler. When preparing for this shoot, her mama told me we would have a tornado on our hands as this little cutie is a mover. Busy little bee (and oh so darling!)
You might recognize her big sister Kennedy here too. Kennedy gets the “funniest” toddler award from me. I have a real heart attachment to that one. She makes me giggle every time I interact with her. Reminds me of a certain little spunky someone that I know (Miss Tori). I had a fellow photographer shadowing me on this shoot and I don’t know what C and Kennedy were discussing but a few different times I overheard Kennedy say “ABSOLUTELY NOT!” in her best parental voice and I wanted to fall over laughing. Too funny!
With two toddlers, you have two seconds before someone leaves the set. :)
Ballet in her future maybe?
Getting a few shots IN her crib seemed the best way to keep her in the light. Speaking of which, guess who just climbed out of his crib for the very first time during nap time? Not fun for me.
Think she is judging the distance for her break out? LOL.
This picture of Eden looks so much like her sister Kennedy to me. They have the same profile.
Not really sure what happened her but I wasn’t going to miss a pout session. Oh the drama with little girls hee hee! Miss Eden was quite content to just go right on reading her book too.
That is one snazzy little kitchen isn’t it?
Hope to see you again soon Eden and Kennedy!!!
