So have you read or seen Twilight?

If not, you really should. My son loves the saga and is almost finished with all the books. His excitement for the books takes me back to when I was his age. He really carries a lot of my spirit and that makes me feel wonderful. I remember the days when books would take me away to another place, another time. I loved to imagine the characters in my mind and make them be exactly what I wanted them to be. One of my favorite authors back then was V.C. Andrews. I would get lost in her words. I would be completely oblivious to my own surroundings as I traveled through her written thoughts. So Austin and I jointly came up with this. He absolutely loves it and because of that, so do I. :)

The infamous Christmas card pictures

Every year we do this and every year I have a slight panic attack thinking about It is always harder to get all three of my OWN children to take pictures together. It is always easier when I do someone else's. Surprisingly this year they were almost perfect. The little bribery I had for them helped a little. **wink wink** Also I have to say that I love this field. By looking at it you would never tell that it would be a beautiful spot for portraits but the light is so yummy there, no matter the season. So here they are and to my loved ones, the card will be in the mail soon. :)

As always Gabs runs the show and puts her brothers in their place...

or she thought she did

Priceless. The prettiest Christmas tree I have ever seen. :)

My Little Zombie

It's Halloween! It's Halloween!
The moon is full and bright
And we shall see what can't be seen
On any other night.

Skeletons and ghosts and ghouls,
Grinning goblins fighting duels,
Werewolves rising from their tombs,
Witches on their magic brooms.

In masks and gowns
we haunt the street
And knock on doors
for trick or treat.

Tonight we are
the king and queen,
For oh tonight
it's Halloween!

~Jack Prelutsky~


Have you heard of the fairy Pennybright?
On wings of glinting gold.
Her pockets as bulging full of flakes
Of copper as they can hold.

She seeks till she finds a child asleep
A child who is full of fun,
One fit to romp with the fairy folk
At the rising of the sun.

Then she hovers lightly over him,
Giving her pockets a shake,
And sprinkles his face with a little shower
Of shining copper flakes.

And there they stick, on the bridge of his nose
And over his small cheeks sown
So that all who see may forever know
That he is Pennybright’s own.

--Marjorie Kahl Lawrence

Perfect poem for my pretty little girl. Thanks for looking :)

He loves his Xbox and Mom loves the beach

So we tried to bring them together! I had a great time with Tyler. He is a Senior this year. He really loves to play his Xbox so of course we had to include them in his shots! I think I might have gone overboard on sneak peaks but I really wanted Mom to see a little bit of all we got. I will let you both know when I have your gallery ready. I enjoyed meeting you and hope to take some family pictures soon. :)

Hey Tyler...Tell me how you will really feel when we are done with all this picture!!

Little Stinker!

I finally got this little guy. He teases me quite often by staring in our livingroom and driving our cat crazy! Yesterday he was peering in from our roof. This time he didn't run away but rather had a staring contest with me. That little stinker was looking at me like I was crazy and would tilt his little head with every click of the shutter. My kiddos couldn't get enough of it and it brought on some serious giggles.

Check out those teeth!

And those claws! Yikes!
Here was my last shot which by the way, scared the crud out of me! The little stinker leaped right at me, which in turn I leaped in the air camera in hand. I wish you could hear the giggle fest that it brought! Little Stinker!!

Kind and Respectful....

sums it up for this Senior. Geoffrey is a great guy! I really enjoyed photographing him. He was willing to stand up, sit down, smile, don't All American is what I think of when I see these. Good luck to you this year Geoffrey. I just know you will come shining through as you always do.
