The Start of Birthday Season

November 10, 2016  •  Leave a Comment
Well this girl starts the birthday season in our little home and she did it with a bang. Happy 7th birthday little girl! She has lived defiantly the last few years and FINALLY seems to be leveling out. She has had really sweet moments, and really mean moments. From talking with my other mom friends this doesn't seem unusual for her age. It was d...

Paul's First Holy Communion

May 08, 2016  •  1 Comment
Happy First Holy Communion Paul! You are an amazing, kind, beautiful child of God. We are so excited you get to receive communion with us at mass now. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful moment. You did great! (Besides the evil eye you gave Riley when walking to your pew.) I thoroughly enjoyed taking photos of this sweet boy. Denis hard work i...

Paul is 7

February 19, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Ok, I've done my duty for the year! I have taken and edited "professional" pictures of all five of my kids, individually. Whew! It was fun, and time consuming. Paul is a delight. He has a different energy than his sisters. I like it. This year has been great for him! He loves to play with his best friend, JR, as well as all of the other neighborho...

Riley is nine!

February 18, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
We have reached the halfway point in raising Riley. I told her this the other day and her eyes welled up with tears. I made her feel better by telling her that she will remember ALL of the next nine years since she is older. I told her that we don't remember our first few years, so the first nine seems shorter. This helped her. I don't think it hel...

Camille is three!

February 18, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
Well, she's three next week, but I got her 3 year pictures taken already. I'm not really on the ball or ahead of the game. Don't give me too much credit. All of my children's birthdays are November, December, January, and February, so every year this time I take them each for a turn with me and the camera. I had so much fun with each of them. It wa...

Riley's Art Portfolio

February 06, 2015  •  1 Comment
Riley applied for talented art this year. She had to turn in 14 pieces of completely original art. She wasn't allowed to look at another picture while drawing, and she couldn't have extensive coaching. It had to come from her head, or by looking at an object. Here's a few of her pieces. She had a drawing test at her school after she turned in her p...

Etta is one!

January 24, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
This little bit wasn't quite as cooperative as the five year old. She wanted to eat the dirt and stick her foot in the mud. We still managed a few good ones though. Etta loves to roll around on the floor like a crazy person, grinning the whole time. She is SOOO silly. She loves to play with her lamb, Camille's bristle blocks, and ANY random thing...

Charlie is five!

January 24, 2015  •  Leave a Comment
I remember a time not long ago that this little one didn't want me to photograph her at all. She was having a hard time because I was taking too many pictures of babies. My own and my clients. She rebelled by refusing to let me take pictures of her. I am so thankful that was a short stage. She hammed it up for me this time. Most importantly, we had...

Tid Bits August - September 2014

August 15, 2014  •  Leave a Comment
Talk about summer fun! I have awesome neighbors. One had a snow cone party for the end of summer. She also cut my kids hair (pictures below if you haven't already seen those). She's so fantastic that I had her cut mine too! Aunt Re gave us these sidewalk tattoos. It took us a few tries to figure it out. Once we did they were great. I think the a...
