Photo shoot!

I recently had the pleasure of meeting the fabulous Cherie-Lynn, (@CLBuchananphoto on Twitter, in case you're not following her!)an amazing photographer. She came to my house to take some professional family pictures. I've been tweeting with Cherie-Lynn for a while, and it was so nice to finally meet her in person.

My boys loved her from the second they met her! She was great with Christos and Dimitry, and I wanted to hire her right then and there to move in with me.

I was scared that Christos would be shy, or would run away, but his smiles were big as soon as he saw her. Same with Dimitry. She is a fabulous photographer, and I can't wait to work with her again.

We had a lot of fun and I was so happy with the pictures! Here are just a few of the great shots she captured that day...

Isn't she great?

I love the one of me in the park with Dimitry in my arms and Christos on his bike. I think that picture would be a really cool blog header... and I could change my blog name to, like, "Loulou in Suburbia" or "Loulou's park tales" or something!

Hey Loukia, I had so much fun hanging out with your family, the boys are awesome. I love the one of you and the boys as well. Thanks again for having me into your home and for the kind words.

I already commenting on Cherie-Lynn's site, but will here too. These are great. I agree that the pic at the park would make a great new header. Maybe with a cool black/white/grey color scheme... whit a bit of pink of course. ;)

Blog design is actually really easy. You should give it a try. Let me know if you want some pointers.

Beautiful pictures!

Linda @ My Trendy Tykes said...

beautiful photos!

Loukia said...

Thanks, everyone!

Oh, Amy... you would hate me after a few minutes of trying to teach me blog design... I would completely frustrate you. You'd quit and then blog about how hard it was to try to teach me! ;) Thanks for the offer, though.

Christy said...

Wow they're all really gorgeous! Love them!

Stacie's Madness said...

awe, they are great pictures, you have a BEAUTIFUL family!

Crystall said...

I agree with everyone else: beautiful! We need to do something like that. We have yet to get any photos with all of us together.

Anna-b-bonkers said...

Lady Mama said...

Fabulous pictures, all of them!

Maria @BOREDmommy said...

Beautiful pics! Can't wait to get some done as well.

Chandra said...

Love the one outside infront of the playground...

Great pictures!

Mommy Lisa said...

I agree the park would make an awesome header - And the name change is a cute idea too.

CaraBee said...

I agree with you about the b&w one in front of the playground. It. is. awesome.

One of my husband's oldest friends is an amazing photographer and we keep talking about having him do a "lifestyle" shoot of us, but for some reason just haven't made it happen yet. We really should.

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Very cute shots! Looks like a fun time!

Shannon @ AnchorMommy said...

Wow! Those are great! I too, love the black and white of you and the boys. You guys are so photogenic!

Nap Warden said...

OMG...those are all great! I love the second shot, so cute:)

Krystyn said...

Wow! Those are great shots!

I need a photog friend!

Wow, you've inspired me to book the family portrait I've been putting off. I've got 5 kids, ages 10 and under and I am always sweating by the time the photos are done. For every decent shot there are always fifteen bad ones! For Christmas last year I sent a card with 3 pics-one great family shot and two smaller pics of the kids fooling around. A little reality with the holidy wishes!

Kate Coveny Hood said...

Gorgeous! I love the way she captures their sweet expressive eyes.

Shana said...

fabulous pics!!!

Kelly said...

What great photos. My family is supposed to be getting professional pictures soon too. I can't wait

Elisa said...

Wow! Great photos! My favorites are the one of you with the boys and the family shot with the pile-up on dad :-)

Which reminds me, we should probably get some professional shots done too! We used to do then once a year when Sarah was born, then we stopped, and we have no professional shots of Stella at all! Bad mommy.

Lisa said...

Gorgeous! We haven't had a family photo taken professionaly...ever. Gotta get on that ASAP! :)

Jessica said...

Awesome. That b&w of you at the park with the kids makes you look like a super hero. I can practically see a cape floating out behind you. It's incredible!

Your boys are precious.

Elaine A. said...

These are FABULOUS!! For some reason the second one really stands out to me. And yes, the pictures in the park are wonderful too! Love them!

Chelle said...

Um, can you say GORGEOUS?!

Seriously, these photos are breathtaking. And I LOVE the park shot.

Wow, honey!

Dee said...

Mommy Melee said...
