2 fun quick shoots!

 So here I have 2 fun mini shoots from December;)  This first one is so cute;)  I got a call from big sister, asking if I can get them in for a last minute shoot (I think this was like Dec. 22nd?) She & her 2 younger brothers wanted to surprise their parents w/some nice photos for Christmas!  So that's we did!  We shot, I edited & burned, delivered, & she printed, enlarged, & framed!  Just in time for Christmas;)! What great kids!

This next one is one of my BFF's & her two boys........this too was a Christmas gift for her hubby;)  I had a lot of fun shooting this!  Her oldest son is my sons BFF since pre-school!  I love seeing them together, he's about a whole foot taller than my son(he has always been taller!) it's so cute that they still like each other, & are good friends - I remember all the "play dates" park days, swimming days etc.....time goes by so fast!    Michelle has awesome boys!  & she is a wonderful friend;)  I love her :o)

So I MUST pass on this SUPER DUPER CUTER ETSY shop link!   This woman is VERY talented in designing & making DARLING clothing for young kiddos!  SOOO GREAT for a themed photo shoot, or just because!
Check out her shop!  I LOVE it:)!!!!

Mammas got all her checkies home....

I have to say.  I felt the EXCITEMENT in mammas soul during this shoot;)   It had been just over two years since their whole clan had been together in the nest;)  We had a good time strolling around HB.....enjoying the "vibe" going on there, & watching the beautiful California sun setting, disappearing into the deep mysterious ocean;)

I am VERY behind w/my blog;/  BUT I just wanted to post this really quick!  While on vacation in Italy, in the summer of 2010, I discovered the BEST eyeshadow EVER!  These cosmetics are made in Milan, Italy.  I LOVE it!  I think these are GREAT products, & coming from a girl who is NOT not into make-up-that is saying a lot!
If you want to feel extra special for your next photo-shoot......check out their website!
