Lucy in her room...and a birthday

First I want to tell Tim Happy Birthday!! I mean Happy day you were born on but we're not celebrating...

I don't think I've shown any pictures of Lucy in her room yet... dad did a beautiful job as always of completely remodeling it.

In the background you can see her name letters from Emma Louise, I will focus on them next time, turned out so beautiful. Her room is pink with lots of blue... so I got half blue with white polka dots and half white with pink and blue flowers, perfect!
I love my new camera too... I would have never been able to get these shots with my old one. This camera is full frame to allow me to take it all in, her room is small. Look at this goof:

I am working late late nights to get proofs out and orders in...just wanted to say thanks again for everyone's understanding of this busy time!

Contest Winner for December!

Well, I didn't blog about the winner being chosen this month because I wasn't able to schedule with the original winner. (And if the first winner is reading this, please contact me and we will work something out)

With my deadline quickly approaching, I drew a second name and set up a session with a beautiful 4 month old baby girl.

Here are a few shots from our session... the display portrait has been ordered for Emma Louise, very Christmasy and adorable! I'll send something out when they hang it up.







If you would like to enter the drawing for the month of January, please email me or go into the store and enter! The session will be mid- to late December.

Hope you all had a very nice Thanksgiving weekend!



More bedroom shots...a theme huh? I just thought I could show you all how much fun an indoor photoshoot can be for your kids in your home...I love these kind of sessions, so much personality:




Isn't she absolutely adorable?

I've got more, probably later tonight...

Had to share from proofing

I've been working on proofing...and I have to share this little collage I made. This little guy was so expressive, so cute! I was cracking up at some of the faces he was making... so I put the best ones together. He was being really patient while we were trying to get his younger brother to cooperate.

I haven't had time to get a sneak peak up from this morning, sorry A and M if you've been looking...I will try to get one soon, they were sooo cute!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

I just wanted to get this posted before the day ends, Happy Thanksgiving to you all!!

I'm so thankful for my family and friends, the wonderful families I've met this year through my photography, and for the wonderful life I'm so lucky to be living.

I've been so busy getting proofs done, cards designed, and orders ready. I've been really bad about putting pictures on my blog, I'm sorry!! About one more week of craziness...then it'll be time to catch up on Christmas shopping, cleaning, decorations, and my cards!

I have some sessions this weekend, so look for some pictures. I have a bunch of my kids too...but haven't had time to look at them... off to work some more :) Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!

Adorable little guys!

Still catching up on everything!

We had to reschedule these brothers because of rain...and this day wasn't much better! We lucked into a lull in the rain and were only sprinkled on once! Too bad we didn't have a magic ball to see how beautiful it was going to be today! But we did well in Mission Impossible...I mean Mission Get a One Year Old and Three Year Old To Stay Close Together and Smile!

This was the first shot of the day, I took it as a good sign:


Big brother was so patient while we worked to get little brother to cooperate. But I am going to put together a collage of the various faces I got of him. He has to be the most expressive 3 year old I've seen! And he has the dance moves!




I can't wait to show you the rest... It was a pleasure meeting you all!

Newborn baby boy

Here are two I couldn't resist of the sweet little guy...The little teddy bear was too cute! He was a very happy baby and put up with a lot from me! Great to meet all of you!



I am not going to get to my other sessions tonight, I'm sorry! Very soon, thanks for your patience!!

Last of the Christmas cards are on my product blog!

Click the link on the right...I put the last couple up. One more from my favorite designer and the others in some different styles from some other wonderful designers.


I am working hard to keep up with proofs and sessions! I'm three sessions behind on my blog sneak peaks. I've been editing the first one so I should have at least one up tonight. A newborn :) I was telling mom, I love newborn sessions because I get my newborn fix, but I get sad that mine are getting older and I won't be having any more...


I will add some pics of my kids that I did a few weeks ago but never posted. I recently got a new camera and these were what I got when I was testing it out:

(Make sure you click to see them better, blogger makes them look fuzzy)

6 month old sweetie

This little guy was sooo active! I am still laughing about how tough mom and dad will have it when he's 2... six months and crawling all over the place. And he fakes coughs to get a laugh! I just love getting to know the kids I shoot (that sounds bad!) and their personalities. Isn't he so adorable? I love his eyes!
We were originally going to have an outdoor session, but man was it cold today! So Grandma and Grandpa offered up their downtown loft. I felt like I was in Chicago! I was in love...I am all about architecture and old renovated places.
He warmed up to me by the end and I got big smiles:



I think this is a new favorite:

More from the mini sessions

More gap girls! I haven't had time to go shop yet either... man are these outfits so so cute!!



These two were the sweetest, happiest little girls! And just gorgeous!!



I went home and told my oldest son I've got a girlfriend lined up for him :) And they managed to meet hours later while we were out running errands!








And this little one did not stop smiling! Loved her!!




Again...busy day. I didn't get on the computer until late late. I planned on a night off, but I had to write a note for my son who missed school last week, and then I decided I wasn't tired anymore. But now I feel better about getting some more sneak peaks out, so bedtime!

Crazy day...one orchard sneak peek

It was a busy day today... the mini sessions at MacQueens were perfect! The weather, the wonderful families!! I this it is so beautiful out there too...I keep finding cool new spots.



It was Gap ad day too :) I LOVED the clothing choices everyone made and I am planning a trip to get some new clothes soon!



Here are two from the first session, these outfits couldn't be any more perfect for the orchard...the red boots are amazing with the apples, and I am in love with sweater dresses right now. And these girls could not be any more adorable! Beautiful, beautiful!





See? Total Gap ads! You can blame my Lucy for not having more. We had our school carnival this evening...get home at 9, which is normal bed time. The kids were wound up, and we figured with the time change we could let them stay up later. The boys were in bed by 10. And Lucy? She was busy busy until 11:30! So, I will work on some more shots tomorrow... and don't forget to change your clocks!

Halloween...

Just a few days late! But I had to share these :)
My oldest was Optimus Prime, from transformers. While trick or treating people were either confused about what the heck he was supposed to be, or were transformer fans who loved it. I would have been in the first group...

Then my middle child. He wanted to be the other transformer, Bumblebee...but those costumes are only available in Australia for $90, and that doesn't include shipping! So after trying to convince him that an actual "bee" costume would work, he saw this Bob the tomato costume online and all was well...

Then my baby girl... after years of star wars and spiderman...I had to go pink princess! (I actually thought the raggedy ann ones were adorable, but sold out)

The hat did not go over well...

But take that off and give her a milky way and we were good to go!

I sent an email out, but if you didn't see it... the winner of the Emma Louise contest for November is now on display at the store! And I have added a gallery on my webpage with a few of the other shots from his session! You should really make a trip to the store to check out the picture, he is adorable and it looks great! Send me an email for the December contest if you want to be entered and haven't already!

Tomorrow is MacQueen's mini sessions! For those coming, please try to not laugh at me as I have seemed to lost my voice! It's coming and going and the kids will probably get a kick out of me sounding like a frog :)
