Family walk around Mt Maunganui

I think I take pictures too often. She did this unprompted, and refused to move until I took her photo.

Getting ready to jump into Daddy's arms.

Using my parents are learning props. I made them stand there while I adjusted my aperture 5 or 6 times.

Fun walk, but I was at the back a lot of the time. The 3rd trimester is coming fast and furiously... I'm worn out!

  1. Lovely pictures, Susie! Wish we had some of that sun and warmth. We had another Alberta Clipper come through so more snow, wind and cold; for Manitoba, Canada.
    Thank you for sharing.

  2. Great Pictures. You might be taking alot of pictures but think how EASY life will be when the holidays come around and you don't have to prompt her for photos. lolol

    The area looks beautiful.

  3. Awww the weather there looks wonderfully inviting! I love the pic of your mom and dad.

  4. I love the first picture of Oceana!! She looks like she is striking a pose...very fierce ;)

  5. love the pictures... looks like a beautiful day!

    love her striped dress too!


  6. i'm just you cut oceana's hair, or has it just not really grown in yet? i love its baby-ish wispiness...keeps her young even though she is getting to be such a beautiful big girl!

  7. hello im so proud of your family :D and you look so happy !!!

  8. my first does that too. He will do something and then wont move until I snap a pic, all the while saying, "take my picture mommy. where is the camera?!" Perhaps a sign that we need a twelve step program for photogs!
