Jan LIndsey - I say this every time, but I think these are my favorites ever. You totally captured the essence of the newborn and added additional beauty with the colors you selected as well. You also managed to capture the adoration of the parents and the pure pride of the Grandparents. Audra, you have outdone yourself! I have told you this before in the past but YOU ARE AN AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHER! I just love your blog and your work. Just GORGEOUS. Well done.

Allison - Oh Audra! Thank you, THANK YOU! It was wonderful meeting you and we so appreciate your capturing these special moments of Graham, Colin and our family. You are amazing. It’s hard to pick our favorites but the first of Graham, the one of him with his head in his hands, and the one of him laughing up-side-down with Rowdy, are priceless. And the close-ups of Colin will be cherished always (well, they all will be!). Especially love the ones of Graham with Colin – perfect capture of brotherhood. We look forward to having you take more photos of the boys as they grow older. Thanks so much for spending your Saturday afternoon with us. xoxo, Allison & Rowdy.

Jan Lindsey - Oh my goodness! Audra, some of my favorites ever, but I have to say
I have said that statement five times but I am in love with these
photos. The personality caught from the little boy, the one of the father holding him upside down. REALLY!!! Love every one. Gorgeous family. You my dear are AMAZING and with four kids of your own. YOU GO GIRL!

Andrea - Dear Audra,
I could not ask for more. You have done it again. These pictures are amazingly done. I loved each and every picture from top to bottom, head to toe, side to side, up and down, backwards and forwards. Just like my love for Jackson and Isabella. My sweet babies. My unequal aged twins! Thank you for being you Audra. For making friendship so easy to give and to receive. For loving my children like you do. Like they are your own family. Thank you for what you said about our friendship and for what you said about the bond our children share. It is a gift. From above. Just like the sunflares. Shining down. It seems like all the people that we love in heaven were watching the show on a beautiful autumn sunday morning and applauding with sunflares. Thank you again, my sister in Christ. You are the gift my bff.
U M M F L I A S,
