I have been a working machine this weekend.  I finished all the Louisiana mini sessions (those shares are coming soon once I hear back from everyone regarding their galleries) AND I finished proofing Jodie’s family beach session.

I am feeling a bit of pressure to post something really interesting after her well worded and thoughtful post when she shared our images.  ((be sure to click on that link, not only will you see my family, but Jodie’s new kick butt blog too))  What should I talk about?  Cellulite?  Nah…..let’s just get this party started by sharing some photos and talk about how fan-flippin-tastic this family is.  They are real and honest and uh, yeah, did I mention, adorable.  Just look at them….

I love love love her face here….

I realize that I’m probably a total spaz, but I was soooooo excited about catching that little lone seagull.   Ah, I love it.  Hey, it’s the little things….

I know I already shared this one when we were still at the beach, but he’s cute, so here he is again.

There is something about this one that I love…

Pure monkey arms luck right there.  I was so sick during our time together, Jodie tried to give me an easy out early in the day, but I wasn’t about to miss it!  Even still, I didn’t do a lot of jumping around, crawling in the sand, etc.

I think I might have a little crush on him….

Yup, I do, here he is again.

I love the way he’s looking at his big sis here.

And last but not least….Love this one!  For a very short period of time Jodie’s kids were 3, 2 and 1 (read:  Jodie & Chris are uber busy).  She had these cute shirts made for them….

And I have to say thank you to Chris for this shot.  He took one for the team and threw himself into the sand belly flop style in the name of getting laughs out of all 3.  Chris, you rock.

Allen family, it was so wonderful to meet you all, I wish we would have had more time to visit and talk about life and photography and being parents of 3 crazy kiddos.  I hope you love your images as much as we love ours.  Thank you!!!
