Owen smiles/laughs

Now i'm no videographer...obviously...but this is some sweet sweet sweetness!!



Baby Girl Miss M

Well folks it happened!  A baby girl was born to people that I I got to photograph a baby GIRL!  It's too bad that her daddy is anti-headbands.  BUT since he wasn't there at the photoshoot I did get to sneak in a few girly things :)  How a man with now 4 girls can manage to be anti-headband i'm not sure lol.  Miss M is an absolute sweetheart and her mommy is smitten by her, as she is with her other 3 daughters too I know.  We'll be doing a followup shoot with her other sister and daddy soon but here she is!

Merry Chrimas!

I find that as a parent now, my language has changed. It's perfectly normal for my regular conversation with my husband to involve the words 'geeeenoooooooo' or 'ahden' or 'bwead?' and it this time of year....Chrimas. Kenzie could never say Christmas the first year so the holiday became known in our family as Chrimas. So Merry Chrimas from our family to yours!

So many things!!

I have so many things to update on here but we'll start with my personal excitement for the week...if you'll remember, I mentioned entering a photo contest a month or so ago...( is the new home of a certain photo of a little someone you'll recognize!!

I've been jam packed busy again with photo shoots and I'm really truly enjoying it.  I'm so blessed to get to do what I love so it never feels like work.  I successfully had my first day of mini-shoots and man was it hectic but the day was so perfect and i was able to get some super sweet shots of so many people.
I also got to spend the afternoon with a gorgeous little family just down the road from us.  Their little boy is only a few weeks younger than my baby boy so we had a great time!
Even further back, I got to do another shoot for some great family friend's of ours.  They have the sweetest and cutest kids and I always love shooting friends (lol).  These kiddos played all over the place and mom loved it i'm sure when i said, 'ok go play in the leaves and dirt!'

Twin boys

So a good friend of mine likes to time her pregnancies with mine.  There seems to be a running theme like that with most of my friends though...we are all, always pregnant.  With her latest pregnancy she had a wonderful blessing...she had twins.  I thank God daily that i wasn't blessed with that because i'm not a person that can handle that...not to mention that she also has a foster child in the same age group as her other 2 biological children....which if you haven't been keeping track makes a grand total of 5, count them 5 children under the age of 4!!  She however, is a fantastic mom.  She can handle this type of challenge and still manage to crochet blankets, and sew their clothes, and bake cookies, and renovate a home.  She's my super hero. :)  So anyways....i begged her to let me photograph her newest little boys once they were born and she happily obliged without further ado...I give you baby S and Baby N...

and last but most certainly not favorite....

alright so our oldest son isn't exactly the best talker...we're still working on a lot of basics but for some reason he adds -ya to the ends of a lot of words.  In fact...he adds weird endings to most words. Dash or Da-dash, Mom is Mahnya, or Maush.  Its Xander speak...but i in honor of Owen's unofficial he is.
We've reached the age that i honestly cringe at photographing babies solo.  2-4 mos is sorta a mild nightmare to photograph because it's the age of discontent.  They no longer will sleep through a shoot.  Sure you can try but as soon as you push that shutter button the eyes pop right back open.  They are also not really appeased by much of interest in toys yet, you certainly can't give them any solid food, and their attention span is 1.7896986 seconds. Oh and add into that mess that they are still extremely 'flail-ly' which is Becca-speak for, "put your stinkin arms down, now get them out of your mouth, why are you squirming, are you pooping, hold your legs still, stop pawing your own face, can't you roll up into a tight little cute ball still?" So photos of Oween-ya for now are going to be mostly snapshots...excepting the first one which was a glorious moment of 'I want to be a SUPERMODEL'

A beautiful Day for corndogs and icecream

 I took 'supermom' out of the closet today and decided to take the kids out to a local foodstand for some lunch.  As a professional amateur photographer i immediately thought about how great the lighting is outside at said stand and decided it would be a great opportunity to FINALLY get some pics of my own kids!  Well the food bribery worked for them to look at me and Kenzie only asked me if i was done with the pictures overall success if you ask me.  Baby Owen was along for the ride but unfortunately had to sit out the festivities....he was devastated.

The W Family

We've known this family for a few years and have enjoyed fellowship and play time with them.  It was a lot of fun to photograph them last night in the beautiful Fall backdrop that God has created :)
