Dawson..Red River Senior-Class of 2010

Finally! Dawson's parents have waited oh so patiently for these to be ready. I have been fighting with my monitor for far too long and so the new one is HERE, and victory is MINE.
The session was right here in downtown Grand Forks and then on the banks of the Red River. I would have to say that Dawson was probably the easiest Senior (boy) I've worked with. He humored my indecision, all of my "just one more shot's", and the usual mishaps of a session (including, but not limited to, my shaking leaf dust on his head during posing). He was an incredible sport, very respectful and easy going, and I wish him ALL of God's blessings at Stanford University.

Brianna Heaven, Haven JulieAnne & Aslan Gabriel

Back to business! Busy, busy months..
These are my three favorite children in the whole wide world. Brianna and Haven are sisters, daughters of MY sister Jolene. Aslan is the son of my younger sister Kelly. I have been blessed to spend loads of time around these three throughout the course of their lives. All three of which have lived at home with me at some point in their life.

I am gifted by God with a wonderful, close, family. (Nosy? Yes, often. But hey, we're southern). I joke about the fact that if there is news, there needs to be only one of us told and within 1 hour ALL of us will know. (This is particularly true with us ladies, i.e.-mom and 3 sisters) And so, with the kids-we are all right there for one another to babysit, change diapers, clean up messes and then, like family, promptly give them back when necessary.

This session was interesting. The kids were very patient with my impatience during the shoot. My husband and I got to have all three for an entire week. Which was, needless to say for a couple with no children, in a word: interesting. I personally think you would be hard pressed to find a better, or more adorable, group of kids. Enjoy..
