Grace: (n) elegance or beauty of form, manner, motion, or action.

This little mini-session had a whirlwind last-minute change of location, as well as 3 beautiful little kids, and a completely un-frazzled mother. She's an award-winning photographer, and an award-winning Mom, in my book! :) I was so impressed at her calmness and quiet grace, her complete acceptance of the unexpected!

Three little ones under the age of 5 can be difficult to get all together in one picture, but we did it! :)

I'm going to let the images speak now -- (I'm loving the lighting and background on these!)

Okay, these 3 children all have the most amazing blue eyes, so putting them in black and white seems a travesty. But it's not. I promise. I love how the eyes pop in a black and white image, so here you have it: (See how they all have a darker ring around the edge of the pupil and then a lighter center? LOVE that!)

And I have a bunch of this little sweetheart with smiles, but this one spoke volumes. 'Just goes to show that an amazing picture doesn't have to contain a smile... (Don't tell my kids that, though! :)

And then sometimes you just have to show sheer ebullience:

'Told you they were blue:

And one last one for Daddy:

Thanks for the whirlwind session, Heidi! I'm still laughing...!

    Thanks for the session Betsy Jo!!! I had a great time. It's amazing that you managed to catch so many fleeting glances. They really didn't give you too much time. "She's like the wind":) (if you know what I mean) I can't wait to show Doug!
