Drew & Dylan {Newborn Twins}

At the very end of November, I headed to Cedar Rapids to photograph the newborn duo that is Drew & Dylan.  Seriously, these two melt my heart!  So sweet and tiny!  Their parents are big football fans, so I brought with me a set of football cocoons I had crocheted.  I think the twins look absolutely adorable in them!

Allie {One Year Old}

A few weeks ago, little Miss Allie once again graced my studio with her adorable-ness.  I last photographed her when she was just a tiny peanut.  Now she's up and moving.  My how she's grown!  I love her big blue eyes and her big smile.  She did such a great job getting her photos taken, quite a little model!  I look forward to the next time she's in the studio, seeing how much she has grown again.

Happy Holidays!

Happy holidays from our family to yours!  I would like to thank everyone for making this year another wonderful year for us at Geno Photography.  It has been a year full of beautiful smiles, laughter, love, and beauty.  I have said it time and again, and it still is true today: I am so very blessed to be doing what I do.  I have the opportunity to share in the lives of so many amazing people and love every minute of it.

Thank you so much for allowing me to be part of your lives!  I cannot wait to see what 2013 holds!

My Girls in the Pompous Grass

Ok, so I love, love, love pompous grass in the fall, especially in the evening sun.  This year I finally got my kiddos dressed up and headed out to a spot just outside of Wellman to take some portraits.  I am absolutely in love with the results.  L & G had so much fun dancing in their tutus during the session, so despite the slight chill in the air (don't worry they had coats and a nice warm car to sit in just a few feet away) they had a blast.

The Nash Family

 In the middle of November, I had the pleasure of meeting up at Wellman's North Park to photograph the Nash family.  The weather was gorgeous, pleasantly warm and sunny.  We started our session down by the willow tree, a spot I love.  The sun was just to the back of it and made the golden leaves simply glow.  I seriously could not have asked for a better spot.  Their vibrant outfit choices look amazing in the setting.  We were able to capture many amazing portraits for them as we walked around the park.  They were such a fun family to work with.

Cassidy's Crochet Creations {Vendor Spotlight}

Adorable.  Simply adorable.  I am loving the items I received in the mail from Cassidy's Crochet Creations.  I recently used them in one of my newborn sessions.  Love!  They are well made items that will keep your baby warm as well as looking fabulous!  She also makes crocheted items for kids of all ages.  I recently received two beautiful items from her for my girls (pictures to come I assure you!), an ear warmer and a hat.  I'm so glad it finally snowed so we can put them to good use.
