Sleepy Head

June 29, 2007

We’ve been in Canada for officially 6 days and counting.  We’ve been so busy visiting with everyone, that I haven’t had a chance to post anything.  Not only that, but my husband has my camera while on a camping trip with the guys.  I had no idea how much I would miss that little black box – it is definitely a part of me.  Therefore, no pictures yet.  :(   My husband is driving in tomorrow and I should be able to get a little snap-happy starting on Sunday!!!  Yea!!!!!!!!

Here’s my sweet daughter.  This was taken a few weeks ago, but this is how she *normally* is when she wakes up from her nap everyday.  She is either very quiet like this, or extremely cranky.  I’m always crossing my fingers for the former. LOL

"R" – if you’re checking in, and since I don’t have any e-mail addresses with me (using my husband’s computer), your proofs are now in your gallery!  Thanks for being so patient!!

Have a great weekend.

Cousins

June 23, 2007

Okay, one more blog entry and then I reeeallly have to finish packing!!

Two sisters and three children among them – one girl, two boys.  Oh yeah, and their husbands! LOL  I’m sure I’ll be hearing about that last statement! haha Just joking "R" and "W" – trust me, you are both GREAT sports!! :)

Without further ado, and because I’m in a hurry, here is what makes these sisters continually have a smile on their face:

Brothers sharing secrets already:


What a great image of fatherhood:

Here’s their cousin, recognize her?! – Miss "S" once again, and this is how I saw her for the majority of the day at the park! LOL  Still love the action though.

All In The Family

June 23, 2007

I’ll be leaving on a jet plane later this afternoon, headed for the cold white North. . . Canada!  I’m ready to ditch this Texas heat, not for an arctic blast, just something a little more refreshing.  So Canada, if you’re listening  . . . .  LOL

I’m sharing a considerable amount of pictures today since I’m not sure how much computer time I’ll have while I’m away.  I am so appreciatve of my referrals and it’s really awesome when it’s all in the family.

The two families below are brothers — starting with the younger brother and his family:

Here’s the oldest brother and his family, except his lovely wife has eluded me in this photo session — this time!!! LOL

Aren’t they all just beautiful?!

A Bonus

June 19, 2007

I love
my job, not only because I enjoy capturing that impish grin or that
pensive look that sometimes goes unnoticed, but because I have such
fabulous clients.  And when those clients become friends, well . . .
how terrific is that?! 

Today was our day to meet a client/friend and her daughter for what
we rationally call a "play date."  This morning, I assembled enough
necessities to host a Girl Scout troop for a weekend campout.  Yet, we
were just going to the park, not even for an entire day, just the
morning.  If you have ever traveled with a 22 month old, you’ll be
nodding your head in agreement on this one.  Not only was it a park
affair, but there would be water – splashing, brisk, water dousing us
from above, spraying forth from colossal, clever toad’s mouths.  What
fun!

Our daughters dashed, splashed, skipped and eventually *tried* to
escape the watchful eyes of their mothers!  It’s a good thing that
we’re swift, agile and determined! LOL

Here’s Miss "S" looking as delightful as ever:

My cutie squealing with excitment every time the water splashed her:



The Great Escape Part I:

The Great Escape Part II:

Thanks again "R" and "S" for a pleasant, action-packed, delightful day!  Soooo, *tap.tap* when’s the next one?! :)

Happy Father’s Day

To all the fathers out there, have a wonderful day!!

Oops.

June 16, 2007

I’m so excited that I have my blog up and running, but I’m still figuring things out.  If it wasn’t for my husband, I wouldn’t have my blog or my web-site. :)   I am so thankful to him for working with me so much.  I’m not the easiest customer. ;)   And he’s spent long painstaking hours helping me with my dream.  Thanks sweetie.

This morning, I have been going over the blog one.more.time to see if I have everything in place and I noticed that I didn’t enable anyone to leave a comment. Oops! That’s remedied now, so feel free to leave me a note just to say hi and let me know that you’ve stopped by. 

Well, it’s back to work time for me.  There are several people waiting on their pictures and I’m trying to edit all these photographs as fast as I can.

Have a great Saturday!

Speed Lightning!!!

June 15, 2007

I had the privilege of photographing "S" recently.  It’s been wonderful to watch her grow since I have photographed her many times before.  She is displayed throughout my web site quite often, and now she’s in her new starring role . . . . she’s my banner girl.

"S" has the most beautiful, big brown eyes and is an absolute doll.  Now, my daughter is fast, but "S" – she is EVEN faster!!!  I really had a hard time keeping up with her at the park this week.  She had freedom and trust me, she took advantage of all that open space. :)

I ended up getting lots of pictures of her running from me and the back of her head LOL, but every once in a while, she would look at me with those stunning eyes and I clicked.  We didn’t get many shots, but what we did get was worth it!!

Here is the quick-as-lightning, beautiful, adorable, unstoppable Miss "S" ~

Do you think she’s fed up with me yet?! LOL :) I just love this pic.

Thanks again "R" for allowing me to photograph your beauty.

Beautiful Baby

Newborn shoots are always fun and it’s icing on the cake when they’re an absolute dream.  This one certainly fit the bill.  The parents let me take lots of time with their little cutie and the result was wonderful!  Thanks "B" and "A" for letting me capture such a special time in your lives.

Here is the adorable Miss "A" ~
