a bit of sunshine :)

A cloudy day is no match for a sunny disposition. ~ William Arthur Ward



Those who wish to sing, always find a song. ~ proverb

These sunshiny( is that a word?) pics were taken this week of my happy girl. Lots going on here with Summer school, swimming, playing with friends and I had my first photo shoot with a dear friend's daughter...Lydia. Let me just say that it's very different taking pics of someone else's child, but it went well. Lydia's parents were happy with the final images and I was too. I now have 2 more families scheduled for pics...don't know where this will go but I sure love taking pictures of children. This weekend we have a family reunion in Illinois and Sunday the 4 of us leave for some R & R in Mexico on the western Caribbean! It'll be the first time at the beach for little William. Won't be posting while we're gone but will be checking in...hoping we have internet access. Have a great weekend and week my friends!

Sounds like you have a packed schedule. How exciting that you are all headed to Mexico. I can't wait to see the beach shots of the kids.....and,if we're lucky some of Mommy and Daddy too!

Your pics look like something out of a Matilda Jane catalog!
The next time we are in WI, would you be willing to shoot my girls?

I especially love the first and last shots! Enjoy these last summer days... it seems to fly by so quickly, doesn't it? Especially when I'm staring kindergarten in the face. *sob*

Your children are lovely, and the way you can take photos just makes it even more so.
