Day 57

New Site...

Oh what a feeling, I have decided to go "green" with Fingers To Toes, a new web host, that uses 100% solar. A soon to be new "client site" - where clients can see more info, sign there contracts and all online, no more paper work, and to go with that a brand new website with new, richer colors - I am so excited...

So, for today an older photo, of days past - and hopefully soon to come again!!!

Day 55


So today I took Aubrey outside to get a few shots - for my blog post over on Northern VA Photographer, I thought I would share with you too...at least one.



Then, when coming inside this plant caught my eye, I loved the lines...

Day 53

Beautiful Girl...

Aubrey is going to be a "flower girl" at a wedding coming up. So, yesterday my sister took her out to get her dress. They found a beautiful dress - so I thought I would show ya.

Not sure what she's doing in the first one, but it was pretty darn cold she just wanted to be "done already".

Day 52

Sorry All...

I have been lax in my blog visiting, honestly I will catch up...I have been busy editing photo's for clients and today I got to work with the precious little boy I saw on Wed. again. He was not very happy on Wed. but today we had quite a bit of time with a happy little man.

So little baby J is my photo for today...



And tomorrow you will get to see Aubrey in her flower girl dress - she's in a wedding in a couple of months. I should have edited them tonight - and my sister's gonna kill me, but I am beat - and my eyes are killing me. (Fancy this, I seem to have gotten pink eye in BOTH eyes! Life stinks, With glasses that were new um, when I was in highschool this will be a fun week.)

Day 51

Just a couple...

Signs of life are peeking though...a dear friend visited...and Zachary's being cute, as always.

Spring...it's coming?


Always telling me something...

Another bud...

I could not decide which I liked best --

I love the sun hitting on the trees in this one...

But love the flare, and son color in this...

Dear Friend...

Day 50

Pizza Man...

Zachary's preschool is such fun, they are always doing something unique and fun. Today was the "pizza man" day as Zachary calls it. (Did you know your school can ask to have a pizza man come visit? I had no idea!) Well, this guy from Papa Johns has been visiting the kids in the preschool since before Zachary got there - the first time, he HATED it, this time he could NOT stop talking about it, he was soo excited he even had a hard time sleeping last night.

Then today, he played with the doh, he "made" his pizza, and then he ate 4 slices! I could hardly believe it!

So here's some photo's from Zachary's "Pizza man" visit!

So it begins...

Can you tell someone is excited?

Helping Hands...

He did NOT want to stop to have his photo taken!

Even the pizza that's not cooked tastes good...

See he made his pizza and it looked pretty good too!


Look mom no hands!

Day 47


Today the kids and I went "prop shopping" I had heard that target had some fun blankets on sale and so I wanted to pop over, we actually went to 2. The first one I found nothing, so then we traveled over to Chick-Fil-A and had some yummy lunch, the kids also had some play time. (It's to cold to go to the local park sadly.)

Then on the way home, I figured what the heck - so we went to home goods and target - I finally found the yummy blanket I had been looking for (though only one of the 2), I also got a "wood plate" though I am debating that one! :)

I plan to head to our other local Target tomorrow to see what they got, it cant hurt right. I have a newborn on Wed so I hope to find some fun new props!

Then we got home, so Aubrey could talk with her dad - and we did nails too :)

Tonight Zachary was just to sweet to not photograph!

Day 46


Can anyone tell that the kids are the light's of my life? My joy and sometimes, it feels like at least, the one true meaning for being on this earth?

My kids, drive me nuts, they sometimes are constantly NEEDY, they whine alot, they are always wanting something -

And yet, more than I could ever explain I love them...there silliness, there kindness, the way they wrinkle there little noses up at me when they think I am being nuts. Even the way they pout, or when they get upset.

I love it all, I treasure it all...and when they grace me with the opportunity to photograph them my heart sings - because not only do I get the chance to "hang with them" even if just for one photo - I get the chance to remember a memory, and to one day when they are older share that memory with them.

My kids - silly, crazy, amazing - and growing up to fast!

Day 43


There's so many different kinds of addictions in the world - from the "bad" kind to the "good" or at least "better" kind.

Lately since photography work has been slow (though I have a shoot tomorrow and another on Wed.) I have been addicted to learning - that CANT be a bad thing right?

Yesterday I took Jodie's Curves Class and today I took her Color Class, if I could only say one thing about both they were/are, AMAZING! (Really I learned soo much in the course of 3 hours I did not think it possible!)

Anyway, on clickinmom's our week's challenge was/is addiction, so I took a photo to show my current addiction!

I think i love the comp here best.

Anyway, now I am hungry for more, I am not such a great "book learner" it works so well for some but for me, I need to see it, and hear it - to gasp it. So now I am looking for more - anyone know of any great photography classes or photo shop classes? I am on a high from all this and I want to do more more more!!! :)
