I can hear kids outside my window playing in the snow and chatting away. Here are some of the gems I overheard:

Kid 1: "I never believed in Santa!"
Kid 2: "I did! And I don't care who knows it!"

Kid 1: "My middle name is Anthony and I hate it. People call me Pepperoni."
Kid 2: "At least you like Pepperoni."

My First Baby Shoot

I had the wonderful privilege of photographing my brand new niece on Saturday. "R" is perfect and I instantly fell in love with her the day I met her at the hospital when she was born. She will be a month old this coming Friday.

On Saturday we had a great time laughing and dressing up R in cute outfits and putting her in gift boxes. She didn't really like the idea of sitting in a gift box, so she in and out pretty quickly. Here are some shots from the day:

R with Mommy and Daddy

Gazing at Mommy

R with Uncle Jeremy

R posing and looking at Mommy and Daddy making funny faces at her

R plotting her revenge

In a gift box, about to flip out.

She made this face a lot during the photo shoot.

Taking a rest from all the commotion. Modeling is a hard gig.
