blue eyes and big smiles

i often joke with david that it’s time to have kids, just so i can photograph them. thankfully, we haven’t had to go to those lengths yet, as i’m able to photograph other people’s children. this is probably margot’s fourth or fifth time on the blog, so she’s helping to keep my ticking clock quieted. hehe.

“which one in this group is not like the others?” … i had to throw this one in for those who know how much emily loves her coca-cola!

workin’ for the weekend

i love teaching, and especially the crazy little urchins i teach, and helping with varsity tennis, but i’m not left with enough hours in the day! i’m super excited that this weekend we’ll be staying home for a change, so i’m planning on working with lots of photos (i’ve also got to plan a 6th grade geography project, but i don’t want to think about that right now…). so, until i have everything done, here’s one of my absolute favorites from last weekend when i visited the other mullins family. Isn’t it peaceful; there wasn’t even one ripple in the water. normally i do at least one little thing to tweak a photo in some way, but i loved this one so much that it’s straight out of camera (except for the crop to fit the blog).

jumping on the bed, hanging from the rafters…

lucy and jonas are sadie’s cousins, and i had so much fun with these three. it was a bit chilly that morning,┬ábut everyone warmed up once they got moving. goodness knows i stayed warm just trying to keep up with them!

i love these first images. sadie was amazed by lucy and jonas’ speed…

mr. edwards sr. built this amazing bench for me, and i l.o.v.e. it!

sadie’s grandpa also built the cabin where these pictures were taken! once inside, the kids ran straight up to the loft, and i think i earned some major points from the kids when i asked if they wanted to jump on the bed…and hang from the rafters! do i know how to bring out the smiles or what?! hehe…
