the crane family

it wasn't just sprinkling for this shoot! it was raining and COLD but they were very dedicated to the family Christmas photo :) cute family... their daughter just happens to be buddies with mine so they planned a quick rainy buddy shot as well.  it's always about the shoes, isn't it?

class of 2011 - MAX

this ended up being a GREAT day to shoot even though we had our doubts... we'd had rain and dark, cloudy days (not to mention VERY COLD temperatures) prior to Max's date, but it worked out perfectly. we got some great relaxed, rustic shots!

the toro family

coldest session yet!  it has definitely cooled off here....  and many of the leaves had fallen but there were LOTS on the ground and still lots of beautiful fall color.  CUTE family :)  i had the chance to do their portraits last fall and it was so fun to see how much the kiddos have changed.  isn't their baby boy sooooooooo cute.  he was pretty happy and tolerant of the freezing weather too.  as we approached the 45-hour mark though everybody was feeling it!  this first picture i couldn't resist posting!  mom was trying to talk her into smiling for just one more picture despite the freezing cold!  her face says it all...

the brown family

our family goes WAY back with browns...  went to college with her and have watched these beautiful girls grow up over the years.  their shoot was the perfect time to capture all of the gorgeous fall colors!  the warm fall afternoon helped too - we just took our time and ended up with some really great shots :)
