October? Pumpkins? Yes, sigh, I am very behind in my blogging.  

Photography is my part-time job, well, let's be honest, it's not a job, it's my fun!  I have a big girl job that pays the bills and that's where I met this lovely couple, and their then deliciously huggable baby Jacob who I nicknamed 'The Cuteness."  Chuck lost his leg in military service and I was his physical therapist.  Megan was his dedicated wife who came everyday, unflappable, and was always armed with a smile and was quick to giggle, and also a quick wit, I might add.  I thoroughly enjoy their humor.

When they moved back to the area, Megan asked if I'd do family photos and I was not only very flattered, but jumped at the chance to see them again. ( Also, a perk of this 'job' is hanging out with friends and family.)  The Cuteness is now a long, lanky, handsome lad & there are two more cutenesses on board, Liam & Alexis....& one in the oven!

We met up in beautiful Old Town Alexandria, one of my favorite places & absolutely rife with picturesque nooks and crannies.  Perfect day.

How would I describe the chaos that ensued?  Herding cats, my friends.  

Jacob arrived and jumped right up exactly where I wanted to start our first shot...Liam followed suit.  I thought WoW!  This is going to be easy!  Then it started....you see the twinkle of mischief in Liam's eyes, don't you?

You know what Liam is thinking don't you?  You can see the tension building in his legs, right?

And so it begins....

There it is again..that twinkle.​.. The place I chose was near a fun little retired loading dock, where there was already a chalked heart most likely from another photoshoot.  It kept the kids engaged climbing and running around.   

Jacob is such a sweet, watchful older brother...

Oh to be this flexible again!

Little Alexis wasn't too sure of me at first....but I was all about her outfit!

I eventually won her over and she gave me a leaf....

Alexis, you are pretty and sweet with a pinch of mischief, just like your mama...

Need I say more about those two? Exactly.

Because there is the twinkle again....

This is a perfect example of how photoshoots REALLY look with little rascal pups like these guys...and then you might get what you had in mind....

Favorite on left....

Close up on that twinkle....

In case you couldn't tell, it was "The Liam Show".... I love me some hams...

Megan's request.....and well, maybe this one is my favorite! (we need an update because there are two more baby feet now!)

...but this really says family photo, don't you think?  This was the very end, so mini person cooperation was at an all time low ;)  Except Liam, of course. (Whaaa?)

I think this may help me develop a strategy for next time! LOL The End!
