Home for the Holidays

Nothing says Christmas time better than spending it with family.  This family counted their blessings as their loved ones traveled across country to be together this snowy Christmas;  a first in many years that they could all be together.  Nothing better than to share in the excitement of little ones awaiting Santa's arrival, stockings filled with chocolate, and an heirloom mistletoe hung for all who enter.  How wonderful to document and capture some of the memories made this special weekend.  Here are just a few from today:

Her Nana's mistletoe....love traditions!!

Love the twinkle in his eyes.....

Merry Christmas!

The Christmas Season is one of my favorites.  It's an extra busy time of year for all of us.   Decorating the house, baking, shopping, and wrapping; and when the craziness of the day quiets down and the kids are finally tucked in and asleep, there is peace found in the quiet of the house when only the glow of the Christmas lights shine.  I love nothing more than to take  time each night to enjoy the reason for the Christmas Season and reflect on what I am most grateful;  my family, my friends and the opportunity to do what I love.  I am also grateful for all of the new families I have worked with throughout 2010.  I wish each and every one of you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Winter Wonderland!

Winter wonderland....that is what it looked like after a fresh coat of snow had fallen on the ground!  Taking advantage of the beautiful snowfall, these gorgeous kids couldn't be scared off by a little cold weather. They did so awesome despite our temps in the 20's.  Brrr....but with a warm car and a little hot chocolate nearby it kept them going!  I had a blast!  Thanks so much for braving the cold with me!  Here are just a few from our session:

And doesn't this image just scream winter?  I LOVE these ear muffs and need to get myself a pair!!  Doesn't she have the cutest smile!!

Press Printed Cards!!

Christmas is around the corner and it's been a tradition for many to send messages of love and holiday cheer to friends and family.  I've created cards for clients for years and have added many samples to my website.  I am happy to use photos from your session or many clients have sent me their own photos to create the perfect card.  Press printed cards are two-sided cards printed on a beautiful watercolor art paper and include envelopes.  Or, have a single-sided card created and printed on a lustre Kodak paper and also include envelopes.  To view samples and place an order please visit my website:  http://colleendavisphotography.com and find Christmas cards under Galleries.

Another Birthday in the House!

We have another birthday in our house this week.  My son turns six!!  We recently took advantage of this beautiful fall weather that stretched well into November to do a birthday session!  I admit getting photos of my own kids gets a little easier as they get older.  Happy birthday buddy!! XOXOX

Kids say the funniest things....

While photographing this family I was asking the little three year old what he was 'into' these days.  Fully expecting to hear "Thomas the Train", "Diego" or "Lightening McQueen", I laughed so hard when he gave me a one word answer - "Poop".   The word made him smile to say and the fact that his parents weren't stopping him, he kept smiling as he repeated it a few more times and I continued to have a conversation for the first time about 'poopin on the potty' while taking photographs.  What a hoot!  Seriously, this family was so fun to photograph.  Since I've known them for nine years now, I've known these gorgeous kids since they were babies!  They all have these amazing eyelashes as you can see!!  Here are a few from our session:

six months and sittin' up!

Could this little guy be any cuter?  I think not!  He's my six month old nephew and he's proud to say he has mastered sitting up!  Such a fun stage!  He loves his big sister and loved it when she sang her koala bear song!  My niece was an awesome helper!  Even got some cute ones of her when she flashed me her bubble gum smile in exchange for a piece of my special bubble gum!  Here's a quick peek:

He sure loves his big sister....

Twice the Sweetness!

Sweetness = Newborns!  I had twice the special day today as I spent it with these precious newborn twins! They were so perfect and full of sweetness with their little newborn noises (and snorts)....one of my favorite stages, newborn!  What a true miracle!  And another bonus was to reconnect with an old friend and co-worker from back in the day of YP Advertising!  Ahhh, the memories!  So good to see you and meet your precious little ones!!  Here is a sneak peek from my fun day:

I think he liked me......what a smile!

Party of Seven!

When this family of seven called to book a session and mentioned they had this old Chevy pickup truck that was her husband's since he was 15 yrs old - I thought super cool.  Then when they selected a location on nearby farmland - I knew I was going to have a field day (pun intended).  I absolutely love the backdrops on a farm!  But looking at these beautiful five children it wouldn't even matter the backdrop!  These kids were amazing to hang out with - the one and only little boy couldn't have had bigger eyes when he spotted the large tractors...he was so excited!!  And, with a first birthday celebration last week for their baby girl, we were able to get some fun birthday photos!!  Here are some fun ones to share....

and this was just too cute for words...

A Fun Morning Session!

What a privilege to photograph these three kiddos again!  Since they are all friends with my own kids I already know their fun personalities!  I felt like I was on a play date with this future Writer, Superhero and Princess....shhh, don't let my kids know I was out having fun with their friends!
