Christmas Presence

Tues Flickr Faves!

Winter Songs

This is not the sort of thing I usually post on this blog, but I couldn’t resist sharing – this CD. It is AMAZING! It’s my new favorite Christmas CD. I don’t usually enjoy Christmas music for very long but this doesn’t sound too Christmas-y so I think I’ll be listening to it for a while.

Hope you enjoy it!

Tues Flickr Faves!

A few weeks back, I was invited to come to the beautiful N.C. Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens to photograph Johnny with his daughters. 

There is something sweet about the relationship between a father and his daughters!  I’ve always known that from my own family (my dad has 4 girls!) and it’s great to see it in other families as well. 

Check out my favorites from Johnny’s session. 

You can tell – these little girls sure love their daddy!

The two youngest are twins though you couldn’t tell by looking at them. 

But all three of these girls do have one major thing in common – they are radiant, full of life – and energy!

The Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens are Gorgeous! 

They completely beat ours here in Atlanta, in my opinion. 

Check out this fountain – I loved capturing one of the twins as she discovered that the fountain will get you wet if you walk under it {click on the picture to see her reaction bigger}.

SO Adorable!  Definitely worth getting wet over!

And here’s her big sister after playing in the fountain:

I don’t know how he keeps up with them!

This is probably one of my all-time favorite pictures! 

This little girl totally stole my heart.

A girl and her daddy… I love it!

Always running! 

I wish I had half their energy!

Johnny, thank you so much for inviting me to come up to North Carolina to meet you and your family!  I had so much fun getting to know you all!

You are such a great dad, with amazing girls!

I hope I get to see you all again soon!

.Love April.

Happy Tuesday, Folks!

I love this quote – its so true!

This post is dedicated to “that dear octopus” of one of my best friends, Jill.

You can just see the love in their family – I love how they are all so relaxed and easy going with each other.

Something I learned about this family during the shoot: None of them like scary movies AT ALL.

And they also prefer happy endings.

Another thing I learned is that the girls aren’t the greatest at synchronized jumping (and not for lack of practice!) …
