{the jones~ a family session} & a winner

first of all i'd love to share a recent photo session of an absolutely adorable family.
melissa & i had never met prior to our session that day.
i have always photographed friends that i was already acquainted with, so i was really excited about this new adventure.

when they drove up, i realized i was shooting a gorgeous family.
the little ones were absolute troopers & so much fun!
i love photographing young families & capturing their interactions.

thank you jones family!
oh & ps, there may be one or more teenage girls at my home that are smitten with your children
& would love to babysit. wink!

this is without a doubt one of my favorite shots. they were off to the side playing while i was shooting daddy & baby girl. when i turned around i saw this...

& finally the winner of the Land of Nod $75 gift certificate is Joleen
