Three Cutie Petuties (and a couple Portnoy cuties thrown in)

So after our Steve and Julie session we spent some time hanging out with their awesome and adorable kiddos…..Ella, Sammy and Janie! One thing we all seem to do well is make children with massive eyes! I just love it. There was no shortage of expressions, laughs, and sometimes tears.

As you all know we like to photograph children as unobtrusively as possible. What better setting than a playground to get authentic laughter and joy. All the cousins and second cousins headed to the playground for some afternoon fodder.

Big sis, Ella.

This has to be one of the coolest boy kid toys ever!!! It had a little fake GPS and a real working radio, gas and break pedal. AWESOME!!!

I finally uploaded some pictures of our kids after church a few weeks ago. Just had to keep exploiting their cuteness.

I don’t think you realize how stinking funny I am. It is a good thing Chloe does!

Her teeth are so adorable.

One word…STUD!!! I could eat his face off! It’s a good thing he is cute because he is going through the worst screeching phase we call “The Tea Kettle”….it’s like razor blades in your ears. It’s only a phase, it’s only a phase, it’s only a phase…..this is what I keep telling myself.

Okay that should give all the ladies an ovary fix for awhile.

Sammy went through the “tea kettle” phase too. It was very irritating, but you are right- it IS just a phase. Now he is in the dinosaur phase. He roars at everyone he sees! Hahaha.

I’m in LOVE with the last one of Bennett! I want to reach in the screen and kiss his checks!

All the kiddos look so cute and in their element. I love those type of photos!
