I'll start by sharing from a couple of recent sessions. Here are two brothers from again, another really sweet family I got to meet and photograph.

This was a pretty quick session as I think little Will tired out after crawling all over the place. I just love his twinkling brown eyes.

After wrapping up these sessions we had planned to head to Pagosa Springs, Colorado with two other families with kids around the same age as ours. We've had this trip planned since this summer and we were all praying for good health. It seemed impossible to keep 7 kids under six healthy for the week but for the most it worked out. Chance got really sick the Saturday before we left and even had to miss his brother's wedding. He just got up Sunday and started packing. I know he didn't feel great but after taking it easy a couple of days he was good to go. We had sooo much fun. We did some short hikes 3 out of the four days and then rode a train from Durango to Silverton one day.

This little guy LOVES trains as you can see by his attire. Its just so cute how all kids have thier own little interests. His face was so glued to the window I'm surprised I got this shot.

I think Alexis's expression here is just after hearing the whistle of the train. We were running a bit late (I know you can't imagine us being late with 7 kids trying to be somewhere at 8:15 in the morning) so instead of squeezing us in the back car we got almost the WHOLE front car to ourselves.

Here's one of Mati and Zeke sitting in this cool stump thier mom, Katie, and I spotted on one of our hikes.

Here's a sweet shot of Chance and the kids while they're all laughing at Mati hamming it up. ..followed by some more random hiking shots.

We also celebrated Samuel's sixth birthday on the trip. I can't think of much more fitting for him than a week with friends. I just loved this shot of him while the kids were playing a hiding game with pinecones one morning.
