I don’t know how mom’s do it…..

My mom says it is because they are not mine…..I say I am glad they are not mine and I was more than happy to return to my four-legged, shedding babies after a day at River Falls Park in Greenville, with Ann and Chrissy and their little people.

Today proved to me that I am out of photography shape as I got served by a three year old, a two year old and a nine month-er…..and their mothers. I was reminded how much of a song and dance it is to photograph little people and in the future I need to hire a clown for an assistant.

The day was gorgeous, as was the location, and the kids are super cute….but the three-year-old wasn’t having it, and the two-year-old frowned at me and the moms talked. The baby however, couldn’t have been better…..that’s it… requirement only children who can’t walk, crawl or talk.

No, I am just whining, I loved it and am thrilled to be able to have the time to meet the new extensions of my friends, and to be able to give them memories that will last for-almost-ever…..

Here is the ‘cutest kids in the world’ winning photo of my day:



Nap time, for all of us. If you want to see more of the ‘before’ (the cute stuff) click here.

And now that I sold myself so well, if you have cute kids you want me to photograph, please don’t hesitate to call.
