I love children. It must be my penchant for new things. Everybody loves a new bag or a new car – but new people? How is possible that some people NOT like children? Whenever I meet a child and they share something with me that they know, it just boggles my mind. Only a few years ago – they were just a lump of googoo-gahing cuteness. And now they know the alphabet and how to count, and wait — the capitals of all 50 states?!
So, I hooked up with uber-cute Smith family for their annual pictorial in San Jose, home of the Sharks. (Now, that’s a hockey team, right? KIDDING, Brian). I had been photographing the twins Makenna and Bret since they were in pullups. I was anxious to see them again because our pictorials are like annual play dates. We get to spend two hours of just talking, playing, running around – and shooting too. Makenna is a beautiful little girl, rough and tumble and can keep up with with any boy. Bret is a little reserved and (I deduce) a deep thinker. I just feel so honored to be an adoptee aunt for a few hours in their life once a year. Goodness, where did the time go? See you next year!
And for kicks – here are some photos from 2006. They are SOOO cute.
