Some of my favourite summer beach photos...so far...

Between the summer run of rainy weather, thunderstorms and wind (lost beach balls!) we have had some wonderful times at the beach. I LOVE the beach - fun in the sand, paddling in the water and the sound of waves. And what a paradise for children!

Ella and Emma - best buds for life...

gorgeous friends, gorgeous children...

It's been a year since I was home in Canada. A year since I saw my family and friends. Not many changes in the "adult folk" - but I have been amazed by all of the children I have heard about all year, seen photos of and loved from afar. Not only are they just gorgeous - they truly are all amazing children. They have welcomed Emma and Jack into the homes, their hearts and most importantly - their toys! (They must care!) I have loved spending every minute with them and enjoyed watching the interactions between my children and their beloved overseas friends and relatives.
The wonderful cousins...
"Joined at the hips" - 2nd Generation...
A serious cutie-patootie...
The adoration Emma had for this amazing girl - and those EYES!!!
Jack's easy going, happy go lucky, tom boy buddy...
Again, lovin' the mommy-son lovin'!
Check out the eyes - one green, one blue - more to come of this little girl soon...
Like mother, like daughter - just stunning!
So, thank you to all of my wonderful family and amazing children for a fabulous Canadian holiday so far - and more to come!

O'Gorman photos

What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life - to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories.
-- George Eliot

The gorgeous Russell and his mom and dad....a cuter boy would be hard to find...but her certainly likes to keep his parents on their toes - hey, what 1 year old doesn't!

I just adore this photo of Rusty and his mom
It's always hard to resist a dad cuddling with his baby

McLoughlin Anniversary Party

Now that my other half is away back to Belfast, I finally have some time in the evenings to go through my backlog of photos...before we left for Canada, we were at a fabulous party celebrating Anne and Johnny's happy 40 years of marriage. A true inspiration! Here is a taste of the evening...
The happy couple:
Not a bad looking bunch!
Our wonderful hosts, the Horners...
...three McLoughlin beauts...
Never a dull moment with this family - the rest of the photos will be on my web soon...thanks!

The GREWVY Crew!

We celebrated my dad's 60th birthday this weekend with a fabulous outdoor party - complete with bouncy castle! Finally, an opportunity for all of the family to get together! So, of course - time for a family photo! More party photos to follow....

Getgood Beauties

These two gorgeous girls...same age as my two monkeys and just as full of energy, spark and personality! We had such fun - indoors and out during this session! I must say, I can not get enough of this photo - I LOVE it!!!!!!
The sweetness of girls - just hard to beat...
I just adore sisterly love - I don't have a sister myself and having a boy and a girl - it is something I haven't personally experienced - but sisterly love in the toddler stage is second to none!
What a fabulous, beautiful family!
We can see where the girls have inherited their love and adoration.
Thank you to the Getgood family...

Another Fab Graduation

From Nursery Grad to University Graduation - this is the time of year for closing one chapter and beginning a new one! (Ahhh... the memories - it seems like only yesterday...)
Rachael, her beau and her folks came to me on Wednesday before her big graduation ceremony..it was a hot day and even hotter under the strobes, but does she look frazzled? 15c13b
Proud parents!
Caught when they thought the camera was packed away - love it!
Gorgeous! - with eyes to die for and lovin' the lashes!
Thank you to the Fordes!

We LOVE the beach!!!

The things we need to do to keep our Emma in one spot!
Any excuse for Jack to get down and dirty!
Our true water baby - can't keep him outta the ocean - or puddles, pool, Jesse's water dish!
