charlottesville baby shoot! November 28, 2011   

Yes, sometimes I do get to work with angels!  If you don’t believe me, take a look below.  I’m not sure who adored this little one the most–me or my camera!

The weather was terrible on this day, but because these guys were visiting from far away, we had to go for it!  And somehow it worked out!  Absolutely dreamy!http://www.andreashirey.com/blog/wp-content/images/roth5_blog.jpg

  Nova farm shoot…take 1 November 17, 2011   

Well…this shoot didn’t go as we had expected.  We had adorable subjects and a beautiful setting, but, these two little guys (identical twins) did not seem to be feeling well.  We did seem to get a few shots, but decided to reschedule.  Mom did let me know that the boys did end up sick once they got home–so we made a good call!  Stay tuned for more later.  Meanwhile here are some we got:

This little one loved his airplane–maybe because daddy is getting his pilot’s license.  How cool is that!  I think our next shoot needs to be up in an airplane! ;-)
