My Kate Date

So now that I know for sure Kate has seen some of our rambunctious fun from waaaaaaaay back in May 2010 ;)  ... I thought I'd blog a few more of my favorites to share with everyone. Needless to say, we had a lot of fun that included chasing, running, sliding down the longest slide ever, chatting (who needs coffee! we can chat without it!), climbing, bug collecting ... the list goes on & on! I think it's safe to say we had a lot of fun just enjoying each others company (and crazy families ;) ). I only wish we lived closer! Alas, we'll just have to make sure we have some more Midwest outings when life takes us in that direction again. Thanks, Kate, for a fabulous date! ;) MachC Photography

The Magnificent Middle | Fairbanks (Chicago) Child Photographer

We met up with my friend Kate while visiting Chicago (oooh, back at the start of summer ... but shhhhh! who's mentioning that?!?!!!). Not only did I finally get to meet her in person after knowing each other professionally for several years now, but I also got to meet her adorable children! They all three have such an adventurous spirit that I only hope I was able to capture on camera. But, that will have to come in a later post. First I have to share a special post just for this one here because truthfully, when I saw this shot, I thought it deserved it's own post. You see, I, too, am a middle child of sorts (the age difference in our family also gave me the chance to be a first born in our crew - I probably have the best & worst of both worlds ;) ha!). So I'd like to think we 'got' each other. Out of all the images I captured of him, I believe this is the one that pulls at my heart-strings & says so much about him & who he is. It was only a brief moment ... in between running & chasing & playing with all the other kids (four of them under five).

I think what I love the most, is if I look closely enough ... I see a small glimpse of the young man behind those eyes of a child. He has a special place in his  heart just for his mama.
