Smiles, Smiles, Smiles

This is my favorite batch of pictures yet... so many SMILES!

Papalin (I think I'm finally learning how to not butcher their names!)

Desioo and Tada.. they were blowing bubbles and catching them in their mouths. At first I discouraged the eating of soap, but then I came to the sad realization that it was probably the cleanest thing they'd done all day.

$1,000 to anyone who can look at this photo and not smile...

I wish I could be fascinated for hours by something so simple!

Tadalie... such a little model.

Yota, one half of my shadow...

... and Tantanso, the other half.

A cutie whose name I am embarrassed to say I still don't know. He's always by my side, but never says a word. He's always got a smile on though!

Monday dancing and putting himself in a trance.

Checking himself out... too too too cute!

Yota and Tantanso.

He's gorgeous. And I think this might be the best picture I've ever taken. Of course, it helps when your subject is so photogenic!


  1. Honey, I love these children without knowing them. Although I do feel I know them from seeing them and reading what you write. They are so beautiful and happy, as only children can be. You "sound" happy, as well, and I'm so glad to know that. Keep the pix and blog coming. It makes me feel closer to you than 1/2 way around the world :). Love you/miss you, Grandmom

  2. Wow Brie, these are sooo cute and your photography is just great.

  3. THANK YOU so much- both of you!!

  4. you see the innocence, curiosity, happiness, love. Its amazing how much photos can talk. Great pictures. Keep up the great work, and keep living your dream.
