While I was in Florida, me and the boys stayed with our good friends, Colleen and John for a few days. We literally took over their beautiful house. It was so great to see them and we got to hang out with this pretty little girl. Playfully referred to as "a Diva" by her parents, Ava already has quite the personality! This little princess is happiest hanging out in her baby carrier, gazing at her mama. Poor thing had a wicked diaper rash so while she was airing out, we decided to have an impromptu photo shoot...because what's cuter than a naked baby crawling around?! Ava's namesake is grandma Genevieve who shared the 'lucky elephant' belief with mom, Colleen. Ava loved chewing on this cute squeaky elephant and laughed and laughed while getting bopped on the nose with it. Glad I was able to catch some cute mommy/daughter moments between these two!
Thank you to the Hotel Lafayette in downtown Buffalo, for allowing us to take over your stunning facility for these family photos. That hotel is incredible and we were all over the place! Love that the guys got behind the bar!! We've known the Leary's for years, my husband and Tim grew up together, their birthdays a day apart! This fam certainly had an eventful 2013 with 2 babies and an engagement. I'm sure 2014 will be an amazing year! I was so happy when these guys were open to heading outside to try a few pics in the snow. It was really coming down, but so gorgeous! I don't think baby Joey knew what to think of the snow, but it stopped him from crying for a little while :) Matthew was trying to catch snowflakes and was so cute while showing us his piano skills inside. (He's learned a thing or two from Uncle Andrew!) And little miss Charlotte (Baby T) was such a good sport for the photos, she was sick, propped up on top of a piano, stuffed in a box and still managed to smile through it all! I'm so grateful I had the opportunity to take pictures of your beautiful family! Cheers to 2014!

Olivia, Kenny, Chase and Drew...4 kids, 4 and under! These guys were fun! Olivia and Kenny were visiting from Florida for the holidays so Grandma wanted to get some photos of all the kids. The Botanical Gardens had no idea what was coming, they were firing on all cylinders! The four of them had such a good time running around and checking out the fish and the flowers. The Thomas the Train exhibit was still there so they got to see the trains running and the Gardens looked beautiful with all the poinsettias on display. They eventually found their way into the sandbox, all still in their dress clothes. Olivia was shuffling through the sand in her tights. Kids crack me up, they just want to play! These cousins truly love hanging out with each other, they got along with each other so well! Such little cuties!
