Introducing... three kidlets!

When I started this blog, I just jumped right in playing along with HSMSHS and discussing my photography highs and lows. I didn't really introduce myself or my family. But the kidlets are my main source of inspiration and often my main subjects, so I thought I'd throw out some brief introductions.

(If you read my family blog you not only already know us, you saw these photos as soon as I took them this week, so feel free to click one of the links in my sidebar if you get bored.)

Oldest daughter is 7 and is known as our Princess. She IS a Princess, preferring all things girly. She would rather wear a dress every day than anything else, she loves flowers and pink and dolls and, well, princesses. She's tiny, freckle-faced and delicate, with a streak of independance wider than she is.

Next we have Sweetpea. She's 5 (almost 6) and loves life. She's always moving, unless she's stopping for a quick cuddle, and does everything whole-heartedly. She's tall, athletic and even-tempered, with an infectious giggle and a clever sense of humour. She likes to run up to complete strangers to give them a hug or climb in their lap and ask them about themselves.

Finally we have my Boy. He's my 4 year old sidekick, my mini-man and chatterbox. He came out of the womb jabbering, had a vocabulary that included "crocodile" at 9 months, and rarely stops for air. He's fun and funny, and HIS sidekick is Blue Teddy--who started talking around the same time he did but uses his very own distinct speaking voice. I have a feeling that I'll never adjust to the silence when he starts school in the fall.

So now you know us! There's also a cat, Sasha, who tends to wander off as soon as she spots the camera, and Hubby who will do anything to avoid having his photo taken.

Oh, and me of course. But I'm growing my hair out from super-duper short to a bob and it's at that terrible in-between stage, so I'm not doing self-portraits for a while.

Have a happy weekend!


  1. What a fun post! Thanks for the introductions.

  2. Awww I can't see your pictures, I just see a red x! :(

  3. Thanks for the heads up Suzanne! Hopefully it's all fixed now!

  4. A wonderful introducton to your kids, they are all beautifull

  5. I love the description of your kiddos, so right on! And it was funny to me that Sasha was mentioned here since I just told you guys today I never realized you had a cat. I think I saw one there outside your door but assumed it was a stray. Funny funny. AND, your hair? It's ADORABLE! So I don't know what you're talking about in regards to that. It always looks great!

  6. Lovely shots & nice to meet the family - Thanks!

  7. Gorgeous photos & lovely to meet the family
