These handsome young men were a kick in the pants. They were little charmers and had no problems smiling for me. I don’t even think they noticed I was there since they were having so much fun. The beach is a perfect spot for kid’s photos. They get to throw sticks in the water and chase each other. They get to dig in the sand and get all dirty. Moments like these are perfect and I get to be the lucky one that gets to capture them.

Thanks W boys for letting me hang out and capture your day!

I hope you enjoy your preview…









I met up with my sister in law for a play date at the beach with our kiddos (and our cameras in tow of course). K was in school, so it was just me and the boys.  I wanted to get some pics of Mr. D for his first birthday. Course he was more interested in the sand than smiling at mom, but he had fun. Mr. I was in heaven with all the sticks to throw. It’s not often he gets to throw things and not get in trouble for it.

The flooding caused the entire  beach layout to change with all the extra driftwood. It was calm and clear and a perfect day.






yes, he never stops drooling…. poor kid…



Miss K came running out of school today exclaiming “you’ll NEVER guess what happened to me at school today!!!!” I stood there thinking it must have been really amazing for her to be so excited. She went on to explain that she’d been selected to be student of the week. I asked her how she got that priviledge and she said “I just thought that I wanted it and thought really hard and all of a sudden they picked me!”

She gets to write a story about herself and bring a show and tell item. A huge deal nowadays because “ONLY students of the week get to do show and tell” she explained to me. She’s bringing her new “eyeclops” magnifying glass she got for Christmas. It magnifies things 400 times and is “really cool” as she puts it.  I had to laugh at my little girl because on her about me page she put that her favorite book was the National Geographic magazine. I think we have a future scientist on our hands.

I love this little girl more than words could ever explain. She’s way beyond her years….

keely serious

Number 6 is the winner!!!!

Congrats “D” family. You will be getting a framed 16X20 to hang on your wall. Your family is so much fun and it shows in the photos.

Image 9 came in a very close second, so I’ll be sending you an 11X14. Who can resist the beautiful M with her hair blowing?!

Thanks to everyone who participated and voted.  I had a really great time this year and a great time doing this contest. Your complements made me smile. I truly love what I do and am glad that others appreciate my work.

Have a great day and here’s to many more years of contests!!!
