It's graduation time!

I can't believe how these seniors keep looking younger and younger! Isn't she gorgeous? She was one of my young women and then she moved... I was so sad! But I am so proud of the lady she has become!

Left my heart in San Francisco...

Well, the kids and I are headed out to California this week, and so I wanted to let you new mommies know that I have two openings this week before I head out. (Tuesday 3:30pm and Wednesday 3:30pm) If you wait til I get back your baby will have tripled in size. LOL. You think I'm kidding, but babies change A TON in two weeks. For you mommies that will be having your babies while I'm gone email me and get on the schedule for the week of the 18th.

The Smaller the BETTER!

I try to tell everyone that when it comes to newborn pics... the younger and smaller the better. I only get to use certain props when the babies are small enough to fit in them. I would suggest between 4 and 8 days old. Isn't he just soooo adorable? More of this cutie to come.

Wide eyed and Bushy tailed...

This little guy was so not a sleeper for his shoot. I tried all my tricks... nothing worked. But then gramma came along with her magic bouncing hands and voila!

Asher isn't MIA...

My aunt asked the other day why Asher is MIA and why he isn't in any pics lately... Well my answer to that is... he's THREE! The saying that goes "terrible twos but threes is worse" ... SO RIGHT ON! I ask him if I can take his picture and he holds up two fingers and tells me "TWO SMILES, MOM!" Well okay... give em to me... so now I'm passing them on to you. Don't you just love those dimpled smiles? (PS, notice the difference between the warmth in the two pics? My lights left me for another photographer so I am borrowing right now. Slight difference, but I love it! New light in the mail!)

Cute cute clothes!

So, the other day I get a knock at the door, and it's my good friend, Heather with the CUTEST dresses ever in her hand. One white and one PINK. She asked which one I wanted and I OF COURSE took the pink! Isn't this outfit just the CUTEST thing ever? I love it! I bought these little pink VANS 3-4 months before Laney was even born and they are perfect with this dress. Thanks HEATHER!!!!
Here is a link to a give away for one of these dresses! Check it out!

There is a glow...

When I was pregnant everyone would always say... "you're glowing!" I'm being totally honest when I tell you that I would wake up in the morning,look in the mirror(tears welling up) and scream "There is NO glow!" What was everyone smoking? Well, I have come to realize that we obviously cannot see the glow on ourselves but we can totally see it on others. And here is a perfect example of a new mommy that totally has "the glow."

Triple K's...

I love it when families pick a letter and all their kids' names start with that same letter. I tried that with our little family but the only "B" name I liked for Asher was Beckham and Adam HATED it. So we went with an "A" name. And Laney is a whole other story that I'll have to tell later. These boys were so sweet with their little brother and beautiful too, just like their mommy!

Portraits for Pink is sneakin' up on me!

Well, I am so grateful for everyone that has been putting in even the slightest effort to make sure this fundraiser goes smoothly. It's hard to put something like this together when you are not in the area to get things done. I have many amazing friends and family I gave "stacks" of fliers to, Mariah has figured out a simple way that even YOU can help (click here to help), my mom got our ad in the penny saver, my Aunt Sue mentioned the fundraiser to the manager of Marie Callendar's who will be donating 25% of sales for a day, my sister is hosting an online auction, and many many many more are just helping in any way they can. I can't believe we only have three weeks left to get everything under our thumb and get myself, props, backgrounds, and three rambunctious kids to California! It's so exciting! I'm gonna be a BUSY girl, but it's totally worth it in my book! To get more info on what this is all about, check out my fundraiser blog HERE. To make a small donation online go HERE.

Busy boy...

This little guy was SOOOOOO busy. All my tricks for keeping him in one place or sitting still did NOT work on this little stinker. BUT he SURE is cute isn't he? I could just squeeze him, and don't think I didn't try, he would wiggle out of my arms every time. A shoot like this makes me grateful that cameras have evolved with amazingly fast shutter speeds! (Ignore the cord I half edited out. I wanted to post these asap. He was so quick I wasn't watching cords, just smiles and eye contact)

Workin' IT!

I am so excited for the new Katie Cupcake dress patterns to come out!! This is an older Katie Cupcake pattern that Amy from the Quilt Shoppe put together with these beautiful fabrics and I just HAD to borrow it!!! Can you tell Baylee and I had a blast on our mini photo shoot in the weeds down the street?
We were just practicing for when the new patterns come out in May... Amy has already given me a peek and my brain is already turning! If you aren't a seamstress you will want to be when you see these clothes!
