Yea Hanna! I've been wanting to photograph Hanna for a long time! When she arrived she gave me a shell that she picked out for me from her shell and rock collection 🙂

Look at that smile! She was wonderful to photograph.

This location is quickly becoming one of my favorite places to photograph people. I like how Hanna's blue coat match the wall but the pink hat adds that bit of contrast needed.

Hanna saw these flower petals while we were walking to one of my other favorite locations and just really wanted to play with them.

Love this! This is the image she used for her valentine cards.

I just LOVE this picture of her too! She is such a sweetheart!

Thanks for coming in Hanna!

Aiden & Kendall!

Their mom really wanted mostly black and white images, however, Aiden
has the most beautiful red hair and I couldn't bear to convert ALL of
them to black and white!

Aiden is quite a show boat-we both had a great time during this photo shoot! The following shot is him showing me his different facial expressions.

Then he started dancing-watch out!

This kid could do well doing commercial work. He has the look AND the personality for it!

Now for Kendall-what a cutie! She didn't relish being in front of the camera as much as her big brother-she was a little bit shy.

Look at those big blue eyes!!!

Oops, the thumb went back into her mouth and her finger went back into her ear.

I love how small she looks in this image. She also looks SO beautiful in this photo.

In comes her big brother to relax her and make her feel a bit more comfortable. What a nice brother!

I can't wait to watch this brother/sister team grow up and I had a blast photographing them. Thanks Jodi for bringing them in!

Here is the first look at some of the portraits from the Share the Love event. Today is day 2, with one more day to go. I will post more tomorrow.

This is Jade, Alys and Coco-three sisters that are a true pleasure to be with.

This is Jade, the oldest. This is one of my favorite images of her. It's a toss up between this image and the studio portrait below.

This is Alys. She is the middle sister. I got some great studio shots of her too!

And Coco-the youngest and the "clown" of the family!

These three girls have an amazing friendship. It is very heartwarming to witness them interacting with each other.

When taking this picture I told them that this was their "tough girls of Portsmouth" picture. It was hard for them NOT to smile! SO CUTE!! Coco did not have to be instructed to "throw out her hip", I think she was practicing her poses before she came to the studio. She had that one down pat.

This picture is meant to be a portrait of Alys. I made sure her sisters were out of focus in the background. What I like about this portrait because it show that her sisters are an important part of who she is and who she will become.

Of course we hit most of my favorite spots in Portsmouth, including the blue wall which always makes a striking backdrop.

I LOVE this one of Jade. She naturally knows how to stand while having her picture taken.

I just LOVED photographing these girls! I feel like I was able to really get to know them and bond with them. It will be a joy to watch them growing up together.
