Christmas All Over Again

 Yup. It certainly is that time of the year! This is another one of my holiday mini sessions . . . but wow we got a LOT a great shots out of so short a time! Maybe I'll have the same luck with getting my Christmas shopping done . . .

"And all over town little kids gonna get down
And Christmas is a rockin' time, put your body next to mine
Underneath the mistletoe we go, we go

Everybodys singin', all the bells are ringin' out

It's Christmas all over again, yeah again

And right down our block little kids start to rock

And Christmas is a rockin' time, put your body next to mine
Underneath the mistletoe we go, we go

Merry Christmas time come and find you happy and there by your fire

I hope you have a good one, I hope momma gets her shoppin' done
And it's a Christmas all over again
Baby it's Christmas all over again
And it's Christmas all over again

Now let's see...I want a new Rickenbacker guitar . . ."

-Tom Petty

The Arnold family is so fun-loving and down to earth, and their kids really enjoyed hamming it up in front of the camera! (Especially you, Carson . . .little boy model in the making!) And sweet Aubrianne just recently turned two, so her mama was excited to get some "Me at Two Years Old" shots as well. Happy Birthday Aubri! Don't let Santa forget that you deserve birthday gifts AND Christmas gifts ;) Oh, the joys of having a close-to-christmas birthday . . . Don't worry Aubri, I can relate!

Merry Christmas Arnold Family!!

Better Together

 This photo shoot with Jack and Dana felt so whimsical, light and fun. Jack has to be one of the funnest (is that a word?) little guys I have ever photographed, because anything and everything he did was just so darn cute. Jack is full of energy, ideas and curiosity . . . so I couldn't help but think of a Jack Johnson tune from the Curious George soundtrack for their song dedication ;)

 "There is no combination of words I could put on the postcard
And no song that I could sing, but I can try because this is your heart and this is
Our dreams and they are made out of real things
Like a shoebox of photographs with sepia-toned loving
Love is the answer at least for most of the questions in my heart . . 

I'll tell you one thing, it's so much better when we're together
Mmm, so much better when we're together
Yeh, we'll look at the stars when we're together
Well it's so much better when we're together
Yeh, it's so much better when we're together . . . "

-Jack Johnson

And one more thing - I wish I had a camera in the back of my head as well so that you could see the adorable way Jack and Dana interacted with each other during the shoot. She had him giggling and laughing . . . I love moms like that! The kind that love to be silly-goofy with their kiddos! (Maybe because I am the same way with mine!) Dana is one of the great moms out there, and she looks like some perfect combination of Rachel McAdams and Elizabeth Banks - don't you think?!

So thanks Jack and Dana! I loved getting to know you two better, together ;)

I'll Be Seeing You

"I'll be seeing you
In all the old familiar places
That this heart of mine embraces
All day through. . . .

I'll find you

In the morning sun
And when the night is new.
I'll be looking at the moon,
But I'll be seeing you. . . "

- Billie Holiday

Little Roman kept reminding me of a cute little boy from the 40's as he walked around this farm in his hat and little suspenders :-) And the first words I heard him say as we were all saying hello was: "Moon!!!" He was so excited to see the moon up in the early twilight sky. So, I thought this song dedication would be appropriate.

Here are just a few of my favorite moments from the Pincus family's Holiday Mini Session . . . such a great family! Thank you Jon, Leah and Roman for being so much fun to photograph!

I'll be Seeing You Roman! :-)
Happy Holidays,
