Hot pink

I'm not sure if it's the fun colors and accessories.
Or the fact that girls are so much different.
Or that she's just Charlotte.
But I have SO MUCH FUN taking pictures of this kid. 
She is such a firecracker and she listens and poses and has as much fun being a model as I do taking her pictures. 

The coordinating mom is just icing on the cake. I didn't realize how bland I and the boys dress until we visited this family and their wardrobe. Holy smokes, neon pink boots? There is nothing pink nor neon in any of the closets in my house. I'm going to work on upping my hat game and the pops of color are fantastic.

They just moved into their new, old house. It's an absolutely amazing old farmhouse. It has teal doors! Teal!! There were so many nooks and crannies I wanted to tuck into with my camera. Unfortunately, most of the time we were there it was freezing or raining or freezing and raining.

We managed to get a few shots in. 

I love it when dogs smile.  

I love how quickly Emily went from being somewhat bashful to twirling and giggling. 

And the picture proof that she is the girl equivalent to my Felix. 

I think this one might be my favorite. 

I think this one might be my favorite. 

I think this one might be my favorite. 

Mike's mug in these had me cracking up. Why can't men ever see the photographic vision of their wives? It's like the male universal language of photography resistance. It's hilarious and all I could hear was Sean saying everything Mike was saying during these. 

Aw, see? Now wasn't that worth it?

And some of just the mama, because mama's are never in the picture.

Tipp City

A few more pre-lollipop pictures. These kids are too cool. They were so good and cooperative that I couldn't help but think something was off. I just clicked away, waiting for one of them to freak. They were all pleasant and they all participated and they all earned their lollipops. 

Kristine said, "Make a funny face." My kids... 

are lacking in the humor department. 

 So then I said, "Everybody squeeze together. Hug. Pat somebody on the shoulder." Jude's face makes this one a winner. 

Charlotte's all, "Whatevs."

I gave myself a big ole pat on the back for getting eight kids in one shot without any major melt downs or loss of limb.
