That’s the first word that comes to mind when I think about today’s session with Shannon.  Isn’t she gorgeous?!


She has the most perfect little round belly too…


And the coolest nursery awaiting her little one…I’m so excited about the newborn session in just a few weeks…I have big plans for her little guy!  Photos of him in his nursery are a photographer’s dream!


This session was a part of my mentoring program with MC.   I use the word "program" totally out of context here, it basically means me and MC hanging out with our cameras since I’m the worlds absolute  worst teacher ever!  MC won’t admit it but it’s totally true.

Oh, and thanks for all your opinions so far on the whole blog dilemma!  Please keep those votes coming – it is so interesting to hear what you think!

yo blog lurkers

you guys are rocking the comments for 10 on Tuesday!!  I’m so excited so many people came out of lurkdom to comment!!  I’m loving all the advice on cloth diapering and put the bug in Jason’s ear about it.  I must also say it totally makes me giggle to hear my mother-in-law talk about my husband’s baby hiney!!  Yeah, if you didn’t read the comments to the post below before, I bet you’ll click on it now!  HAHA!  Seriously though, thanks for all the great ideas and advice (please keep them coming!). 

All these new comments and lurkers coming out of hiding makes me wonder who has been with us the longest here on the blog.  Does anyone remember my blogger days, or even further back, my old old old blog on .mac?  Yeah, you’d be a real old timer then!

While I’m here, check out Teagan, yet another image for the crib series…big boy sittin up in his crib, peeking over the edge…funny face and all.


I need to stop proofing images of him at night, it makes me wonna go wake him up!

the most wonderful time of the year

It’s that time of year again…..this is my all time favorite!

Ty and I took off for the afternoon to hit the mall and shop for school clothes.  We totally took advantage of the tax free weekend and all the back to school sales.  I was bound and determined to make it as painless as possible because Ty is in that awkward age where friends and clothes are becoming very important.  While we don’t always agree on clothing choices, I was careful to let him choose his clothing (within reason) and purchase things he was comfortable in and he thought were ‘cool’.  I even smiled when he chose a hoodie with a skull on it.  And anyone who knows me can tell you that when it comes to stuff like skulls on clothing, that I was being a very good sport!!  ha!  Gosh it was easier in Louisiana because he wore a uniform, I wish they would institute that here.  It would make my life so much easier and avoid the "what are you going to wear tomorrow" and the "oh uh-hu, you’re not wearing that" battle at our house.  Anyway, we had a good time, until we couldn’t find pants that fit him.  I had to face reality….I’m having a really, really hard time with the fact that my baby now shops in the men’s department.  No more boys department.  How can that be?!?  I’m not coping well.  Guess I should have seen it coming, he’s almost as tall as I am.  Seems like just yesterday he was tiny in my arms, just like Teagan.  Sigh….times are a changin’.

Speaking of change, tonight was Teagan’s last night in the sink bath tub.  He’s totally outgrown it, bustin at the seems, splashing and ready to move on to the ducky tub.  I had to take a few shots of him tonight…the end of an era…



My boys….remember this?  They still cuddle after bath each night, I love this time that they share.   Cuddlebugs…


They grow and change way too fast than could possibly be good for this momma’s heart.

bless you








As you can tell, it doesn’t take much to amuse me these days.  His face in the first shot cracks me up.  Oh sweet baby, how I love you.

If you are curious about why my baby is wearing a Christmas hat, in Texas, in the dead of summer, check out the post below!  The mini sessions are going fast – book today!

the triplets

The last time I saw them before we moved to Texas, they were just tiny little peanuts.  I was psyched when their mom booked one of the Slidell mini sessions.  And I have to tell you how impressed I was with how cool, calm and collected everyone was!  And get this, they all sleep through the night, yes, I asked and I’m totally impressed!

I’ll start with this one just cause it cracks me up! 



Am I horrible that I love this one?  Poor baby…she was not into her birthday hat at all!  Check out that tear…


Without the hat she was a happy little thing though.









Thanks for all the fun guys and happy birthday!!!!!
