A few of my favorite things... like I said nieces and nephews are the cutest in the are their Christmas pictures to prove that it's true. I love them to so much that perhaps I should be they are :) Merry Christmas!

The Vass Family :)

Look at that sweet Sadie Bug!

Sadie Blaire Vass (9months)

Jaycie Shaye McClintic (19months) Look at the cute I could bite her!

Grace Anne Hammond (9yrs)

Daniel Joseph (Little DJ) Hammond (7yrs)

Benaiah Jacob Hammond (5yrs)

My brother's kids are so much fun and there are so many of them! HA! So cute and so sweet all of the time! I could eat them up!

I hope you have as much fun with your family as I do with mine! But I'm pretty sure it's not possible. I am so blessed!

Santa Claus is comin' to town....

Before we know it, Christmas is gonna be here! So that's why Mandy and Jason brought little Lexi in for her Christmas pictures! She is such a sweet little girl and so beautiful! I can't resist her sweet face and you won't be able to either! Enjoy your preview, Mandy, Jason, and Lexi! :)

Lexi definitely has the best Christmas dresses in town...check out all the fur! I LOVE it!

Could you eat her????

Lexi loves her daddy!

I had to post this last one...Lexi was OVER it! HAHA! She was pounding on the door trying to get out...hysterical! She was such a trooper and so were her parents. :) Thanks for letting me take Lexi's Christmas pictures!

Same initials as her mama....

Sweet Aubree Jane came to my "studio" (if y'all could see what I call my "studio" would know why I add the quotation and was an absolute ANGEL! Her mama, Amanda Jane, has been a friend of mine for it seems like 100 years! We cheered together in youth league...C team. Go Blackhawks! I've also known Aubree's daddy for a long time. Amanda, Peter, and precious Aubree are an adorable family and of course I loved getting to take her pictures and spend some time with the Ottaviano fam!
Who can resist ruffles on a baby butt?? Nobody.

Look at those cheeks!!! You can buy a hat just like Aubree's for your little pumpkin from UnaBella! (

I love that sweet face!

Of course, Aubree is wearing an UnaBella bow! (

Last but not least...My personal favorite...Aubree is such a doll baby!

Two shoots are better than one....

I had a photo shoot scheduled for Deana and her I thought...why not just go ahead and take my girls with me and take their fall pics, too? Might as well kill 2 birds with one stone, right? Lots of pictures....lots of fun!

I can't believe how much "my" girls have grown up...I've been babysitting them for 4 1/2 years now and after this last photo shoot, I can honestly say that I understand why mothers cry when they see pictures of their children...they're not even my kids (bioligically, of course...I do take pride in being their "Mommy #2"). The first pic is from our first photo shoot....they were 8 and 9...

Now...they are 12 and 13....I can't take it...

Emily is 13 and just get more and more gorgeous every day!

Lydia just turned 12 today! Happy Birthday, Lydi bug! What a beautiful little girl! She's a wild one, for sure! ;)

Deana really is SuperMom! She is the mother of 4 adorable kids! 2 beautiful girls and now TWIN boys! They are a precious family! I don't know how she does it...but she does it all while looking gorgeous! Enjoy looking at the pics of Bonnie (Deana's mama), Deana, Makaylah, Kaitlyn, Isaac, and Bryson!

Baby butts.....I love it!

Of all the things I do...being an AUNT is what I love most...

Most aunts believe that their nieces and nephews are the cutest in the world...mine, however, actually are. :) I got to go and visit my fam in Fairmont this past weekend and of course took some pics of my favorite little girls. It was Jaycie's turn for a big photo shoot because I don't see her as often as I get to see Sadie...but of course I snapped a few of the Bug as well. :)

Jaycie Shaye is as rotten as she looks...doesn't get much cuter than this, folks!

Jaycie holding Mommy's hand...precious.

Jaycie loves to give kisses. Especially to her mommy.

Sweet Sadie Bug...keepin' it gangsta.

These are my cute parents. I love them so much. They are adorable.

Goin' to the chapel and they're gonna get married...

Rich and Elizabeth were so much fun to shoot! I go to church with them and I actually met Rich when my parents "adopted" him to be their A.L.M.S. son (Adopt and Love a Marshall Student...a ministry at RCCC where families in the church "adopt" a college student so they can have a home away from home) so in a way...Rich is my brother? Anyway...they are such a cute and fun couple and hopefully their engagement pictures prove it!

I love ring shots...they're my faves :)
