this darling little lady came up to the studio again, this time for her six month photos, which is always a fun age to photograph. don’t you just love her eyes and that smile?!!
Well the holidays are behind us. I don’t know about you all, but I felt it went by so fast. I’m not gonna lie…I’m glad it’s all over. The holiday’s are not a relaxing time for me. Ha!
Did all of you set big goals for 2013? I, like Andrea, am going to try and blog more. I am really REALLY gonna try! On a personal note I am going to try and take more pictures of my own kids. I sometimes forget about them. Ahhh…not forget that makes me sound bad doesn’t it? Well for any of you that are photographers you totally get what I am saying right? Maybe it’s just me. Well either way I am going to try REALLY hard to get more everyday moments of my own children.
Ok, enough of all that jazz. Now on to Miss Olivia! She was up here so so long ago, but better late than never. I have to say she is always such blast to have up here!
Sorry it took me so long to get you on here Olivia! I promise next time I will do better!
I had so much fun with this little 6 month old and all her adorable accessories!! She is so photogenic and there were so many great photos that I had a really hard time picking just a few to share!
Thanks for coming in, “N” family!!
That outfit, her curls, those eyes…LOVE IT ALL!!
Thanks for such a wonderful day!!
My baby turned 7 in July and she allowed me 20 minutes (that is including the 10 minutes it took me to brush her hair) of her time. That particular evening, there were frogs to be caught, a scooter to ride, neighbors to play with….anything but take some pictures!
She is the silliest girl I know…such a joy to be around!
Little Miss ‘E’…where to even start! She was seriously the smartest little girl ever. It was like talking to a teenager, I loved every minute! And then to be cute on top of it?? Bonus! It was so hard to choose which pictures to share with you, but here goes nothing….
Another successful round of mini-sessions complete! I bet you’re thinking it is about time I get these posted. Ha! I picked out my favs from the day…
Yes that’s right…this little doll came all the way from Sweden to have her pictures taken! Ok, as much as I would like to think that is the reason she came all the way to ND, I must admit she came to visit family and just happened to book a session with Tiny Sprout. Either way she still came all the way from Sweden! Ha! We had soooo much fun the day her and her family came up to the studio.
Baby ‘Y’ brought along her favorite toy….
Holy picture overload I know, but it was so hard to narrow it down. Just one more….
Thanks for the fabulous time ‘S’ family! I hope you enjoyed your sessions as much as I sure did!
FYI! Tiny Sprout is planning to start off 2011 with a bang for our wonderful past clients. Please check back soon, here at the blog for all the details on this great contest!
And since everyone else has shown off their lovely Christmas cards I might as well share my e-card as well. That’s right, it was an e-card because I can never seem to get an actual physical card out in the mail… Maybe next year??
We spent the week of Christmas in the cities and had a great time. Livia absolutely LOVED the children’s museum in downtown St. Paul. We practically had to drag her out of the grocery store, she could have pretend shopped for hours.
Since this was the first Christmas that Livia understood what was going on I tried really hard to start up some traditions for our family that she’d remember. One of the traditions that I really liked in my own family was our advent calendar. It wasn’t the kind that had candy each day, it was just hung on the wall and had a mouse that moved from one pocket to the other. My sister, brother and I would usually race to get the chance to move him. So I decided to make my own advent calendar. I completely procrastinated and didn’t start it until the weekend after thanksgiving. It was done on December 13th, ha!
We always visit santa at Rheault farm… and this is the third year in a row that she’s completely freaked out. It’s hilarious how similar her face looks in all the pictures over the past three years.
We also got The Elf on the Shelf (thanks grandma!). Liv named her elf Lucky and was absolutely delighted to see where he had moved to every morning. In fact she was a little concerned that Lucky left us so suddenly and still asks about him.
And of course we did some baking, Liv takes sprinkling and sprinkles of any kind very seriously.
We also decided to decorate a gingerbread house, although this activity seemed more fun for me than it did for Livia this year. She was mostly into “testing” the decorations.
Santa gave her a camera this year! It’s so fun to watch her clicking away, she holds it up to her face even though she doesn’t need to. After taking a picture she’ll usually look at the results and say “oooh, that’s a good one!”.
I hope everyone is safely hunkered down in your cozy warm homes tonight. Check back this weekend for our contest details!!
Whew! Is it just me or does the holiday season seem to get busier every year? Between shopping, Christmas parties and traveling we are pooped! I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas with their families, I know we did! Now today we are back to the daily grind…well my hubby and I are back to the daily grind. The kids got to stay snuggled in their warm beds this morning as we got up and headed off to work! Now we are home and I am going to hit the couch. Good thing I was motivated enough yesterday to take down all of our Christmas decor so I can do just that! Well before I sign off I just thought I’d share the back of our Christmas card (yes, I got this great idea from the fabulous Ria!! hehe). This picture doesn’t really do our card justice since it was printed in a ornate shape, not just 5×7, but you get the idea! Now I am off to hit the couch for real. Have a great rest of the night!
