The L Family - Part 2

I couldn't get over all the great colors at the playground! Here is E on the slide. She was moving so fast with all the excitement it was hard to get many of these.

Not only did we find colors there, but E brought some bright colors of her own. She says her favorite color is "all the colors in the world" but I think secretly that it's pink.

We spent the first part of the day at the playground getting mostly pictures of the girls, but we made time to get a few of Mom and Dad. You knew that that E and L had to get their good looks from somewhere. ;) This is one of my favorites.

Of course, L couldn't bear to be too far away.

During the middle of the day we wandered down the long maze of wooden walkways to the covered picnic area that overlooked the lake. L was definitely most content when mom and dad were within an arms reach (or when she had some sort of snack in her hand).

On our way back, we stopped for a family photo op. This pretty much sums up the day... no more than 3 family members looking at the camera at the same time.

As the day wound down, E lost some of her energy and decided to become a model. How adorable?!

I think someone is a daddy's girl.

On the other hand, we pretty much tried everything to get L to smile. Mom knew just what it would take to get a smile. Little did I know that it wasn't my charm...

This was the last photo of the day because the shirt ended up getting more water than E did.

Thanks Mom and Dad for letting us join you and the girls at the park. You can never have too many pictures for the walls =)

The L Family

You'll probably remember adorable E and L from a few weeks ago. Well this weekend we took the girls as well as Mom and Dad out to John Chestnut Park with us. This time we went in the morning with hopes that L would be in a better mood. Turns out that time of day isn't really the issue. We found a very colorful playground that E had a blast climbing on and sliding down, and of course is hardly ever camera shy. L never quite warmed up to the idea of climbing on the playground too far from Mom or Dad.

L was more interested in watching and feeding the birds and fish in the lake that we could see from the covered pier.

Here's a cute black and white of precious little E.

And Chris, always getting the unique angle.

Sometimes you just have to get on the ground to get cute shots like this.

Of course, as soon as we got home from the park, L couldn't have been anymore cheerful. She was hugging us all and blowing kisses. Sadly, all the cameras were put away at this point, so we didn't get a chance to capture it. I guess staying at "home" might have allowed for many more happy photos from Miss L.

Stay tuned for the family shots from the rest of our outing.

Portraits: Trae and Jayme

This weekend we took pictures for our friends Trae and Jayme. Being photographers in sunny Florida is great because it was in the 80s and it's still February! These two were real troopers and allowed Chris and me to drag them all over the park. We found some great light which totally made it worth it! Here are a few of the pictures that Chris and I took. They are just so photogenic!

Jayme has the most beautiful smile!

We ran across a firetruck in the middle of the park. The firefighters of Safety Harbor 53 wanted to get out and enjoy the beautiful day too. They were kind enough to let us take a couple of pictures with the truck. Here's one of my favorites.

Then Chris decided he had to climb in the trees to get the shot he wanted:

He ended up getting some great shots so it was worth it:

Here are a couple more sweet moments from the day:

Thanks for hanging out and taking pictures with us!

Tampa Photographers Meet-Up Take 2

Our friend and fellow photographer Courtney Fries asked us to check and see if we had any pictures from our meet up the other week that had her wearing her fancy shirt and matching Shootsac. Sadly we couldn't find a single one! But here are a few other photos that Chris and I thought we'd share. Chris took most of these so give him some love!

Photographer or model... its hard to tell =)

Courtney says she'd rather not be on this side of camera. She could've fooled me!

Great shot of Shem.

I really love this shot of Shem.

Nick totally workin' it for the camera.

And the gorgeous Courtney.

Nick being a ham.

E and L

Yesterday I took some pictures for my neighbor's little girls. We thought it would be cute to get them all dressed up in their fairy costumes first. I was told that they got their fairy costumes for when they visit Disney World. E was so excited and proud of her costume so she had no trouble posing for the camera.

L on the other hand, woke up from her nap on the wrong side of the bed and we had to work through some tears before getting some pictures of her.

Candy always helps out =)

After a quick wardrobe change, we headed to the park to play at the playground. I was kinda jealous that I didn't get to spend more time playing and climbing myself! It was all so exciting for the girls; they just ran from climbing wall to tight rope to balance log. We got in a few pictures before it got too dark.

We only got a couple of the girls together. They just didn't have time to be in the same place for very long, haha.

I have a new found respect for parents of little kids. They will wear you out. Thanks Mom, for letting me tag along with you and the girls!
