him…right now

Monday, March 16th, 2009

I want to always remember his cute little expressions. Brown eyes. Superhero and Diego play. How he carries a ball and bat around the house with him 24/7. That little cut on his forehead that might just scar.

This photo sums him up at almost two and a half years of age.

We just love him to bits!!! ;)

Hope you had a fabulous weekend. ~m

This little cutie pie came over to play with my daughter this week — the girlies had lots of fun running around playing dress up, pirates/shark, and bossing their siblings around. ;) When C arrived, she was sooo excited about the tooth fairy coming the previous evening & then proceeded to show us that her OTHER tooth was about to fall out, too…her front tooth was literally dangling!

Peach peered into her mouth numerous times and she looked on with curiosity as C wiggled and wiggled that little sucker the whole time she was there.

With a little egging on by the mommas, C FINALLY got the tooth out — there was MUCH cheering involved! :)

I LOVE the image on the left where she’s checking out that very new, gigantic open space with her tongue. :)

Then she started talking and there was a noticeable difference — tooooo cute! Peach desperately wants to lose a tooth now…

Have an incredible day! ~m

i’m not ignoring you…

well, maybe just a little!!! ;)

We have a wonderful friend in town from college. The next couple days will be spent laughing and playing with the kiddos…a much needed break for me!

I WILL post a fun couple pics tomorrow of a cutie visiting our house yesterday…she lost a tooth WHILE she was here. And I, LUCKY ME, got to document the whole thing. Adorable.

Peach is insanely jealous of her front-toothless friend!

Have a super day… ~m

I had a blast working with these cousins a couple weekends ago.  They were SO excited about these last shots & really worked together to come up with a fun jump shot.

There was lots of laughing — it took quite a few takes to get everyone off the ground, but FINALLY we got the shot.

Doesn’t this look like fun??? :) and WOW…M got some major air!!!

Have a super day! ~m

I think you can tell by these cuties that they had a whole lot to give my camera. :) Look at that squeezy hug she’s giving her big brother — I can’t help but look at their entire session and smile!!! M & C — Can’t wait to show you the rest.

Have a super day! ~m

You may remember this cute little guy on a tractor, a few posts back.  I had a session with his family a couple weeks ago and unfortunately, he was under the weather.

I met with mom and little B for a bit yesterday so we could really capture HIM.  And I believe we did!

Isn’t he cuuuute???  :)

Have a spectacular day! ~m

{a lovely wedding}

Monday, March 9th, 2009

Lovely, lovely bride and groom!  SO creative, in LOVE, and what fun at this amazing location!  I LOVE that they wanted images in a bus…near an old green truck…in front of a dumpster…next to a bunch of bright blue recycling bins.  They saw beyond “junk” and recognized the beauty.  I LOVE it when clients have that kind of trust in their photographer!!!

I am so happy I had the opportunity to second shoot this wedding with the uber-talented (and super sweet) Jeanette LeBlanc. We were a great team and the day went by really quickly!

Have a super day! I have some shoots during the week (due to spring break) so be on the lookout for some fresh faces. :) ~m

{the wedding}

Sunday, March 8th, 2009

I just want to say I’m alive and happy today! I got so many sweet emails, texts, & Facebook comments wishing me best of luck on my first wedding ever. I have the greatest pals, really!!! THANK YOU guys for thinking of me. :)

It was really fun — super fast paced! I had a great time with my pal Jeanette LeBlanc & the fabulous bride and groom. They had so many awesome ideas for portraits (we did their session in a junkyard!!! <—wooo hoooo!) and really worked it, “Top Model style,” for the camera.

I know you can’t wait, so I’ll post a couple images from the wedding tomorrow!
Have a great Sunday! I’m going to enjoy relaxing with the fam. :) ~m
