When you give a little one permission to play with the fancy dishes, she will want to get every since dish out. Laney was certain, her tea party would not be complete until she had nearly every cup and saucer on the table.
Mommy, Daddy, and Dolly joined the party. And as Laney pretended to poured each of them a cup of tea, she made ‘sssshhh’ sounds. Too cute!
Laney was the perfect tea and crumpets party host!
A year ago, I spent my day with a couple of the most darling little girls as we waited for their sister Cora to be born! I had previously done Cora’s big sister Charlotte’s birth story, which led to a wonderful friendship with her mom Kristen.
Happy Birthday Cora!
The Schnipke’s are one of my favorite families I have the opportunity to take pictures of every summer. Over the years, it has been such a pleasure to get to know Beth & Adam and their three children Quinton, Gretta, and Henry.
Quinton has always been the responsible big brother. He takes good care of his little sister and little brother. When we did Quinton’s little brother Henry’s soccer pictures, Quinton was quick to show his brother how to pose for them. Wise, smart, and athletic, I never get tired of snapping off a few pictures of him (even though the session was planned for the two younger one’s birthdays and family photos).
Gretta has always been a princess who loves soccer but also can catch her twirling about. To catch a real smile from her, you better get her to giggle about something, otherwise she will force a cheesy one or give you a completely goofy face. Over the last year, Gretta has grown up so much and come fall she will be headed off to kindergarten.
I think Beth doesn’t mind girl time with Gretta from time to time however.
I just can’t get over that Henry is 3 years old. Although he looks so much like his older brother, he has a little orneriness of his sister. His smile and charm are so captivating, he has nearly everyone he knows wrapped around his little finger.
When you put these three kids together, you get some of the funnest images. I am never disappointed in my session with the Schnipkes!
After getting two positive test results for Cystic Fibrosis, this little lady and her mommy got some good news the other day. On Thursday she went to see specialist in Toledo, to do further testing. And the doctors found she is a healthy baby girl who DOES NOT have CF.
Her and her mommy are living in the Findlay, Ohio area and will be spending the next several decades living happily ever after.
