So Many Expressions, So Many Smiles! Wendi Riggens Photography

The very first time I photographed someone in this little family, Edward was just a tiny little sleeping baby, posing quietly for daycare/preschool photos. Now he’s a sassy kindergartener and his precocious little sister is the one I am photograping at daycare/preschool! Melinda and Tyler are such great people and also local small business owners. Word has it Santa will be bringing my son a bicycle from their store for Christmas! Definitely check out Bickels for your cycling and fitness needs and for your holiday gifts!

Kimberly and Edward were more excited about exploring a “tunnel” between the trees than they were about posing for me, but I managed to get some SUPER cute expressions! Look at this sassy little sweetheart!

The Cutest Little John Deere Baby!

I really don’t have a lot of words for this session, except that I absolutely love this family and this little boy!

Though, they did give me the BEST excuse EVER for being late for a session. Here’s the phone call I got that day:

“So, we are lost in the corn maze. We called for help, but we might be a little late for our session.”

Yup, gotta say, I laughed quite a bit at that. And I didn’t mind them being late one bit.:)Baby In The Fall LeavesBaby and Family In The Fall LeavesBaby and Family In The Fall LeavesThe Cutest Little John Deere FanBRooks-Pflum-6mo-FB-16BRooks-Pflum-6mo-FB-18BRooks-Pflum-6mo-FB-22BRooks-Pflum-6mo-FB-26BRooks-Pflum-6mo-FB-30Super Cute Baby and His Amazing FamilySuper Cute Baby and His Amazing FamilySuper Cute Baby and His Amazing FamilySuper Cute Baby and His Amazing FamilySuper Cute Baby and His Amazing FamilySuper Cute Baby and His Amazing Familyks for this

My Life as a Soccer Mom – Behind the lens with Wendi Riggens Photography

This is totally a personal post tonight. I realize how rarely I actually photograph my own children (partly because they really do not listen to me when I have the camera out) and how even more rarely I actually sit down and edit the images I take of my children. Even though I was up late working and starting to nod off at my computer, I felt the need to grab my Oly OMD and download the card that was in it. This morning I took a few quick shots of my daughter playing in the back yard. The last shots before those were from September 1st. Such a shame! Almost all of my snapshots of my kids are taken with my iPhone. I really, really need to get my “big guns” out more often, or at least the EM5, though it really isn’t all that big.

Anyway, I’m rambling, and exhausted, but wanted to share a few bits of my life. These two are my pride and joy, the reason I wake up every morning and work as hard as I do – as hard as we do, my husband and I. These two bring light to our lives in ways I never imagined possible before having kids, and I am so incredibly thankful for them.
