Babies, and Toddlers, and Dogs, Oh My!

Filed under: Photography,Portraits — chantal @ 10:16 pm

Actually, just one of each…but first a pop quiz:

How would you describe the perfect Sunday morning?

a) coffee, bagels, & Meet The Press
b) at church, gospel music infusing the air
c) pancake breakfast with hubby & kids
d) photo shoot with an amazing family
e) All of the above

If you answered “E” then you’re right, but this past Sunday, I spent my day doing “D”, and I couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend the morning.

Meet Miss Buckeye, the proud owner of two fabulous parents, a gorgeous (almost) 2 year old named Grace, and a beautiful baby boy who just joined the family, Tommy:


Miss Buckeye greeted me with a wagging tail and lots of love…and it only got better once I got to know the rest of the family. Since Tommy is the newest member of the family, his parents decided to update their family photos, and they invited me to spend their Sunday morning with them. I had such a blast playing with Gracie and snuggling with Tommy…and of course getting lots of love from Miss Buckeye. Here are just a few (and by a ‘few’ I mean a ‘lot’) of my favorites from the morning’s shoot:

Mom, Dad, & Tommy…


Tommy, fast asleep…


Big sister, Gracie…


Gracie & Miss Buckeye seemed preoccupied with something outside…



I love when newborn babies open their eyes, exploring their safe little worlds for the first time…



Tommy was quite content after Mom fed him, so we had a little fun…



Gracie had fun showing off her big girl room, even though her expression here says otherwise…don’t you just love the ever-changing moods of toddlers? 🙂


Then it was bath time…she LOVED that…


A-MAZING eyes…


A final look at Miss Buckeye….she was a very gracious hostess!!




  1. Wow! These pictures are fantastic! Can’t wait to see the rest of the pictures.
