All the way from Macedonia!

My youngest son met this little guy in the summer of 2009. They met at swimming lessons and were instant buddies for life. Kosta, however, does not live here. He was visiting for the summer from Macedonia! We've had to stay in touch through email for over a year, but as kids usually do, they picked up right where they left off when they got to see each other last week!
This is Kosta.
Kost and his Mommy (my friend, Alison) having some tickle time!

Is this not the funniest face?
It was Kosta's idea to put their arms out like airplanes. So cute.
Kosta is a very expressive little boy. I love these faces he made and look at his big brown eyes!


Mini Session with the C family

Oh, how can you resist this skeptical little face?
B is almost a year old already (I photographed him as a newborn and at 6 months)!
Possibly the cutest thing ever...B with his guard pug, Gus.
I'm pretty sure Gus is thinking, "I dare you to mess with my baby!"

Definitely one of the cutest family portraits I've ever taken!
I just want to pinch those cheeks!


Christmas Cheer

I love the winter holiday season...the sparkling lights, the holiday music, everything.
Here are just a few simple shots I took of our tree.

If you want to achieve the pretty bokeh effect of the lights, simply put your camera in manual focus and take the shots with the lights out of focus.
