One of my buddy's came to see me today to show off his new baby sister who's on the way. We had so much fun that he didn't want to leave.

“Love came down at Christmas; love all lovely, love divine; love was born at Christmas, stars and angels gave the sign.”
~Christina G. Rossetti
We are almost on Christmas break here at the Studio so I wanted to take a minute to wish you a Christmas filled with the warmth and love of those you hold dear.
Blessings this Christmas and all year through,

Are you expecting a baby? Don't wait to schedule your session. It is best to photograph your newborn in the first week or two after birth. Baby will grow and change more quickly than you can imagine.

From time to time you will see some of the same faces here on the blog or on my website. No, your not going crazy. I am honored that many of my clients become regular Mettler Portrait families.
Want to know a secret? Okay it's not a secret, on October 22 we will be hosting our 3rd annual Halloween Bash. The 15 minute session is free. There will be nothing to order and there is a 4x6 on me. That's right, free! The only thing I ask is that you help us stock the Kendall County Food Pantry. Every year at this time we have a food drive. Contact me to get your time slot. The first time I photographed these kids was at one of my halloween bashes. If they look familiar, you must be on my mailing list. They were in it to advertise last years bash.

Before church this morning My children and I attended the Oswego Fire Department's remembrance and dedication ceremony. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey sent a section of steel beam from the World Trade center. It will be on permanent display.

I am so blessed to be a family photographer. Here are a couple of my favorites from a session I had last month. I've photographed the girls before but this was the first time I got to meet their terrific big brother.
You can feel the love can't you?

It was almost love at first sight. I met this boy about three years ago when his mom came for maternity pictures. We did some images of her with both of her boys and some of them alone. After they left I sat down to edit and I looked into his eyes and started to cry. He is a beautiful soul. He's growing up now and looking more tough than angelic but I love him just the same you can see why can't you?

I've had the chance to work with many families from a few of our local schools this year and this one was a lot of fun because Mom is a teacher where two of my kids went to school. Here are her two young thespians. I'm off to a seminar today but I'll try and post a few more later this week. There were so many great ones!

Sometimes I am amazed by the way babies seem to be born in clusters of the same sex. Since December I have not had one baby boy born into the Mettler Portrait Family. Here is one of my little girlies from a session last month and Baby V. will be here fresh and new next week. Will that be the end of the little girl run? We shall see, two new boys coming up starting in Aug. :)

Before I rediscovered my love for photography and let it seep into every waking hour, I used to spend my leisure time reading. This morning I came across a quote that I had to share. I love Emerson. He feels like a soul mate.
" Life is a train of moods like a string of beads; and as we pass through them they prove to be many colored lenses, which paint the world their own hue, and each shows us only what lies in its own focus."
My wish for you is that wherever you go, you paint your own hue.

I have been fortunate enough to photograph this sweet little Wisconsin baby twice. She came to see me shortly after she was born and now again for her first birthday. Couldn't you just fall into those blue eyes? We weren't sure what she would wear and when she arrived this was the backdrop I had up. It couldn't have worked out better.
