Baby It's Cold Outside {Bozeman Baby Photographer}

But who needs clothes when you’re inside a lovely mountain log cabin, with gorgeous light, an enormous wooden table, baby Uggs, and a Mom with a camera?

Heck, it was so toasty inside, we ditched the booties after a few minutes so I could catch my boy in all his 7 month old glory.

Sometimes I get so wrapped up in producing great images for my clients that my camera neglects my own dear children (although, I think my almost-3-year-old likes it that way!).  I missed out on doing an official 6-month photo shoot with Benjamin, but I think this makes up for it!

Despite the watery eyes and pinkish skin color that were remnants of the short crying fit he had just had, I loved his big smile in this next one.  Isn’t it crazy how fast little ones cycle through emotions. . . laughing, crying, back to laughing, then a yawn all in the span of 40 seconds!

I’ll end now with some sweetness complete with bright eyes, tongue out in concentration, and a nice string of drool!

Generations {Bozeman Family Photographer}

The fun-loving brothers you just saw in the last post do have a sweet side, too.  I just had to get them together with 3 lovely ladies. . . their mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.

The matriarch of the family looked ever so stylish with classic pearls and hip red shoes!

Her great-grandsons make nice accessories, too, I think!

The same also applied whether the handsome boys posed with mom or grandma. . .

I really love having all 4 generations in one shot, though.  Such a great family–I feel lucky to call them neighbors!

Brothers (human and canine) {Bozeman Child Photographer}

Our neighborhood is full of boys.  The standard seems to be 2 sons per family, so my own family fits in perfectly!  Most of the boys are bit older than my own but I love watching them together and getting a glimpse of what my own boys might be like in a few short years.  We did a brief outdoor photo shoot–Mom wanted something festive for holiday cards–and I got smiles, laughter, wrestling, snowballs, tears and giggles out of them all in a 10 minute time span.  Pretty typical of most brother relationships, I’m sure!

Big brother is only 2 years older, but he’s quite a bit taller.

I turned the tables on them and little brother got to be the taller one for a few moments!

Little brother was sweet enough to pose for me.

Big brother was already off gathering an arsenal of snow for an ambush.

And we can’t forget about dear Jax.  He’s barely a teenager (in dog years) and had more than enough energy to keep up with his two human brothers.

There’s just something about boys and their dogs!

I love watching you grow in your photography. I’m amazed that you find the time…do you sleep? :) You do beautiful work and it looks like a business is coming together. So fun to see. Your blog makes my heart smile.

Amy Shertzer, pet photographer! Seriously, I’ve always loved your shots of your own furry kids and the ones you got here are a stunning as your human subject. Give it some thought…

Super Size Sneak Peek {Bozeman Family Photographer}

A “sneak peek” is supposed to be just that–a little sneak of a peek at a few photos from a session.  Well,we had so much fun and I got so many great photos at this session last week, I just couldn’t pare it down any more than what you see here.  So, the result is this super-sized sneak peek.

After Mom and Dad showed their affection for their dear children, I thought it would be fun to capture some sibling love.  When I asked for kisses on cheeks, I got quite the adorable response!

Okay, now, big brother, it’s your turn to do the smooching!

They did so good, I was willing to let them off the hook and just sit next to each other. . .

Mom and Dad followed their sweet kiddos’ lead and smiled nicely for me. . .

And we got the whole foursome again!

By now, they were all pro’s in front of the camera and the kids happily posed for some close-ups.

I’ve been a blessed photographer lately, having so many photogenic families to pose for me!

Thanks for bearing with my super-sized post. . . I’ve got a few more sessions to post, so check back for more in a few days!

Amy I love the photos and they are making miss the snow so much! Your photography skills have just exploded. The photos are awesome. Congrats on all the success.

I can’t wait for snow to try out some shots like these. YOu’ve inspired me to get out in the cold :) Well done on so many counts!

Ten {Bozeman Family Photographer}

This weekend I got to photograph an extended family–ten lovely people together!  Seeing the adult brother and sister along with their parents and all of their kids certainly makes me wish that we lived closer to our family.  How great it is that the littlest kiddos get to grow up with their cousins nearby!

Old Man Weather wasn’t really in the mood for a photo shoot, serving up some very cold temperatures and blowing snow, so we started out inside.

After a few shots of the entire family, grandma and grandpa insisted on posing with their grandkids.

I can’t say I blame them for wanting to keep all that adorableness to themselves!

The snow finally stopped, so we ventured out to the covered porch for a few more photos.  Our spunky 6-year-old was the only one brave enough to jump down into the snow. . .

. . . the rest of us kept our feet dry and stayed on the porch!  And we finally got some smiles out of Little Miss 1-year-old.  Seems she was just waiting for her close-up (and a few good tickles from Mom)!

We finished up by letting the two who started it all take survey of their lovely family!

Live, love, laugh just about sums it all up!
