Makai and Malia

I had so much fun getting to photograph these two spunky kiddos.

leila_092409_0058The crazy part is how I’ve been wanting to meet their gorgeous momma for about 3 years now.  A mutual friend of ours introduced us by way of the internet and we’ve been chatting ever since.  You see, Leila loves photography almost as much as I do, which gives us plenty to chat about.    BUT, up until just a few weeks back that’s all it’s been – chatting online.  Then, I received a message saying she’d be in OKC and would I PUH-LEASE be willing to meet up and shoot some photos of these two knuckleheads.  How could I possibly say no?

Of course, Leila had to be part of the deal.

Happy Fall!

    You crazy chick! I didn’t know you even put these on your blog! Of course I LOVE LOVE LOVE them and I show a different person every day. I couldn’t narrow down my favorites either – because every single one is beautiful! And of course I gotta have a few Facebook profile pics and proof that the kids did have a mommy, since I’m usually behind the camera. You never have to twist a pageant girl’s arm to take a picture. LOL. Thank you again so much for squeezing us into your super busy schedule. You rock! And your baby boy did not do much help for warding off my baby fever…he’s precious. :)

    Oh and BTW – if I HAD to pick favorites – the one of Makai squatting down (you can see his lego watch) captures his genuine smile SO perfectly (I can’t even do that) and the bright one of Malia in the hat and jacket – to die for! xoxo
