Ok, so I entered Callen in the Parents Magazine Cover Model Contest. The chances are like 1 in 75,000 to win, but hey...I guess he has as good of a chance as anyone! So I took him out yesterday for a mini-session to get some shots of him to enter.

That being said, WE NEED YOUR HELP!! Click on the link below to view Callen's photo gallery(you won't be disappointed, he did a great job!)

From there you can rate all 6 of his photos, 1 to 5 stars, with 5 being the highest. You can also "recommend" his photos. Doing both of these will help Callen's photos get closer to the front page, and more easily viewed by the general public on Parents' site. You can rate and recommend his photos once per day, with the higher ratings the better. Will you help? We have until July 1st to get as many recommendations as possible, so pass this on!

Here is the link:

Here is a sneak peek of his gallery:

And I have to say "thanks!" to one of my clients, for letting me know about the contest. Her son, Ryder is entered, also!



Look how pretty she is! I have been photographing Aislyn since she was a newborn, and I have always been amazed at her eyes. And now I am am loving her blonde hair!

I think this one has to be my favorite. I love how natural and unposed it is:

And she had fun on the beach, until we put her feet in the water... She wasn't too happy about that!



Andon was such a trooper for this shoot. It was a terribly hot day and he was sweaty and we were all so hot. Nonetheless, I was very happy with the results of the photos.

I love these of him and the fence. He had a good time peeking at me through it:

Look at those BLUE eyes!

Soooo serious!

GREAT BIG smile!

Most often my favorites are the more unique ones, and are usually not your typical cheesy smile shots . The next 2 are my favorites. I love the first because of his expression, like "Hey, what are you doing on that side of the fence!?"

And the second one because the eye contact is great, and he just put himself in that cute little "pose" with his arms crossed!



Ryder is such a happy guy. We didn't work too hard for these smiles! Remember him from newborn and 4 months? And now he's 8 months old, already.... What a cutie!



Take a look at these sweet gals! We were wanting some non-posed, "whimsical-looking" photos to create a birthday invitation. Here's what we ended up with....
love 'em!


Handsome Boy

Terrible Two is definitely NOT a fitting name for this little guy! He was such a joy to photograph, and I think is the most photogenic 2-year-old ever! He reminds me of my own son at this age, who was a total ham for the camera. We ended up with an amazing amount of excellent shots. It was hard for me to choose the ones to show!

I LOVE these 2 groupings!
