An Afternoon with Christopher and Katie
I would like to introduce you to two of the cutest kids that I have ever photographed (who aren't directly related to me!) Meet Christopher and Katie, 2 and 5 respectively. We spent the afternoon goofing around in their backyard and then at the local park.

This is Chris - I love his flip up hair style!
And Katie - Isn't she an angel here?
Smelling the wild flowers.
He is such a happy kid!
I love this one of Katie running towards me - exactly 5 seconds before she tackled me to the ground!
I was on the other side of the teeter totter thing - about to fall off with my camera in hand!
That's all - just a few favorites :)

Just Kids - A weekend of swings and bubbles
My family from Texas is visiting so this week we had not one, but two cookouts! Here are some fun photos of the kids...

My nephew Jason, formerly known as tater-tot.
Drew on the swings.
Thomas & Ashley, visiting from Texas.

This was right when they got home from the Red Sox game, if you can't tell!
Allison, my god-daughter! She is getting SO big!
Allison spotted my camera and lunched for it!
Elizabeth with her always cute smile!
Jason... AGAIN!

It's a barbie world - and she's in the middle of it!
This is Lisa, one of my proud "blog stalkers". Today, Lisa is proud of something else. Her extensive barbie doll collection!
Lisa, a barbie collector of many years, recently found out that she is going to be featured in a magazine well known to barbie world, called Barbie Collector. She immediately called me to take the photos!
As I worked, Lisa explained the ins and outs of Barbie bonanza to me. Every year, at the annual Barbie convention, Matel auctions off a one of a kind Barbie for charity. As you can imagine, this is Lisa's favorite time of year....
All hand made.
Signed by its designer.
This was the 2004 Donatella Versace prototype.
Lisa had to have it. She is very proud!
This might be a secret, but Lisa outbid popular Barbie collector Demi Moore for this one... Crushed!!

Demi, if your reading this, be sure to comment!
Apparently this doll on display isn't the real crowning jewel... It's in the shoes.
Made by Harry Winstons, they are really something to look at. They even come with their own bag.
Follow to Barbie land!

Okay, I made up that name... but come on, look at this room!
Only a little bit creepy :)
Having my own personal collection at home helped me to understand and appreciate Lisa's enthusiasm for her Barbies dolls. Go here to read about my collection! - The Michael Blanchard NYC Collection.

Thank you for inviting me into your crazy world!
If you would like to check out Lisa's article, and my photos, be sure to pick up a copy of Barbie Collector in 2008!

I was very excited to walk into the house and see these blue eyes staring at me! Makes my job a lot easier :)
She's a mischievous 9 monther, and very cute.
She's big into books. That's a good thing!

Greetings from... Jason & Allison
Over the past month I've been snapping away trying to get some good pictures of the kids. Meg wanted a birth announcement photo, and something for a Christmas card. Next time I want to get more of them... TOGETHER! (We had a lot of fun though!)

I'm having trouble seeing a family resembalance... how about you?
Allison, always lounging.
Jason, always on the phone.
Max, always at the bar.
Intrigued by Max.
Playing with his dad.
Hi Max!
Is he not a beautiful kitty?
Staring at that bottle of milk...
A favorite!
Talking with grammie?
Back asleep...
On another day...
Love her!
Meg & Allison.
Jason topping the Christmas tree! (with leaves).

Merry Christmas everyone!

Judi, Bob, Dan, & Allison! - Family Portrait
You may remember my good friend Allison from wedding crashing over the summer. Yesterday her family invited me over to shoot their family portrait! I absolutely LOVE this family. They are so nice, and very fun to work with. It isn't every day that they are all together so they were thrilled to have some photos taken... Here are some of my favorites!

Comfortable & relaxed at home!
I love these ones!
Allison & her parents.
We went outside to take a few more, and to include their dog Sugar!
The entire family.
Thanks again for having me! Can't wait to do it again.
