All Growed Up

This morning my friend Kelly and her little boy came by to hang out.  I say “little boy” because I haven’t seen him a whole lot since he was born and wow, time sure does fly.  He is getting so big!  He was the first baby/kid/person I ever took pictures of besides Mya.  I can’t believe that this was him!  And now he will be one year old in February.  Had fun with you guys this morning!  I miss you!  Quit teaching and come and hang out with us everyday.  😉

And one of my sweet girl from breakfast this morning.  I love how she crosses her feet while she’s eating.  So sweet!

Happy Belated Holidays

Wow, I can’t believe Christmas is over.  I just don’t want to take down our tree yet.  🙁  I love having it up and I love the smell of my Christmas candles.  I love how cozy our house feels right now.

If you haven’t noticed, I have not been doing any sessions over the holidays.  I wanted to take a break to have time with my family and to get some things figured out with my business.  Today I was working on some new Photoshop techniques and began working on this picture of one of my favorite little models.

Isn’t she so beautiful?  I hope that everyone had happy holidays and really took the time to enjoy what it’s all about:  family!  I’ll be back soon!!  I haven’t disappeared.  🙂

And the Winner is….


Congratulations, you guys!!  I will be placing the order for your canvas today!  Second place went to “Birthday Boy”.  🙂  Thank you to all of you who voted.  I am still amazed at how many votes there were.  I wish that I could give canvases to all of you!  Don’t forget you can still order them through  🙂  Have a great weekend, everyone!

Happy Friday!

Today is just a beautiful day!  The sun is shining, no coats are needed, Mya and I have had a great day and Ryder is coming back home from N.J.  Woohoo!  No more single momma here.  This morning while Mya and I were eating breakfast, the sun was shining in on these roses and I just had to grab my camera.  Sun these days is rare so I had to take advantage of it.  Happy Friday, everyone.  Don’t forget the photo contest ends tonight at midnight!!


Okay, so I decided to do this photo contest just for fun thinking there would be a few votes but boy, was I sooo wrong!!  Every time I check my email there are tons of votes.  I can barely keep up!  The number of hits on this site are insane.  The most hits I had had in one day before this contest was 142 but for the last few days, there have been 300 on one day, 450 the next, and so far today there have been 170!!  Wowee!  You people are serious when it comes to winning.  😉  Thanks for all of the exposure!  Can’t wait to see who wins!  I have a feeling I know who it might be.  Hmmm…..

Just came across this as I’m finishing up pictures from last weekend.  This picture makes me want to go wake Mya up and hold her.  Oh the love of a mom and her child.  It’s like nothing else in the world!
