This morning’s Menlo Park family photography was almost rained out.  The F. kids endured the cold, wet feet, and drizzly rain on their heads.  There were smiles, there were tears, there were cookie crumbs, and well, there was Meeknah!

What is Meeknah, you ask?

One of Bella’s lovey’s is a monkey, but she cannot say “monkey”.  Instead, she pronounces it as “meeknah”!  Hearing and saying this word cracked me up, and it never got old!

It’s a Circus

I didn’t even have to pay admission!  It must have been my lucky day.  🙂

[Wanna see how much the The Family has changed?  These were the sneak peeks from their shoot in 2009 and 2008!]

And one more thing…. Meeknah!  Ha ha ha…

  1. We had a wonderful time w/ you this morning Annie. You made our kids feel so comfortable with your kind words and warm smile. I like how you get so excited about the shots even before you see them but after you post them I can now see why. Continue to do what you do best and make this world a happier place! You’re the best!

    Love the “Sneak Peak” Annie! Thank you for everything today. It all worked out! And it definitely shows in the photos! Absolutely love your natural & creative approach to photography… simply amazing! Looking forward to seeing more.

  3. I love the colors in the photos, Annie. you have such good eyes. Plus I like these photos because Maddie has those silver shoes in splish splash.
