The Shaeffer Boys

That term (‘the shaeffer boys’) had a whole different meaning when I was a kid.  The Shaeffers were the ones who immediately got blamed if there was a pumpkin smashed in the road the morning after Halloween, or your trash cans were tipped.  But these two Shaeffers could not be sweeter (and hopefully that will run straight into their teens).  To get an idea of just how tiny Charlie & George are (each is weighing is at 4 lbs and some change), we put a 2 dollar bill above them:















Here they are with mommy & daddy looking on:











Look at this tangle of toes:








 And these shirts may be 100 sizes too big, but I thought they were great (and I love how George stole the show with his wave that covers Charlie’s face):









 Can’t wait to watch these two grow this year! 🙂

The Grant Family

I had the honor of doing a 4-generation family shoot for the Grant family this past Saturday.  This is such a fun, tight-knit group…it was truly a pleasure to be the one to capture them.  Here is the whole gang:








I love this shot of great-grandma & Isabela (this little one fell dead asleep minutes after this photo was taken…eyeballs not to be seen again):
















And these three goof-balls were like a barrel of monkeys…never a dull moment:









Thank you all so much for having me!  🙂

Meet Mr. Gaius

Here is beautiful baby number two.  Gaius was born on the 5th and weighed in at a whopping 9 pounds.  Look at the size of this guy:








I love this shot of his tootsies:















And here he is (thinking hard about something) with his monkey:









 Thanks for having me out in the middle of your sleep-deprived week!  Hope you get some shut-eye soon!  🙂

I’m BACK, Baby!!

Its been too long…so glad to be getting back into the swing of things!  Hope this finds everyone well and rested after a beautiful holiday season!

So far, 2008 is off to a great start!  Babies definitley seem to be the theme so far…I have seen 4 of the most precious new babies in as many days, and I can’t wait to introduce you to them.  I am going to start with Miss Lola…she was kind enough to share a few smiles with me, which always makes my day:
















Is she a chubby bubby or what?!

Here she is with Mom, Dad, and big sister Lily:
















Here are the girlies together (this one required a little chocolate bribe for Lily, but it was worth it):

















And I love this on of Lola in her beautiful cradle:



















Thanks so much to Lisa & Bobby for having me out!  I look forward to watching  your family grow over the next year…

And to all you blog geeks…keep an eye out for more posts tomorrow!  🙂
