One more baby!

I think I've known this little baby girl's mother since I was 9. So what's that 20 years?! She spent many weekends at my house. We "played ouiji board and listened to art of noise." hahaha I'm really proud to be able to take these photographs of her little three week old daughter! Love you Autumn!

We found a turtle!!

We found a turtle while I was working in the yard on Sunday. Owen didn't really quite know what to make of it. Probably more so because he just woke up from his morning nap. So....we filled a bucket with water and walked it down to the golf course at the end of our street to let it go in the mangroves. Only after we took a million pictures. I really felt like a family that day. It was very cool.

Picking out the Pumpkin

Pumpkin picking! (I love this picture so much!)

My boy!!!

What a busy week we've had!!! Tomorrow is Halloween and it's Owen last "first" holiday. You've already seen pictures of him in his Hernando Cortez costume, so here are some pictures of our preparations. Beginning with picking out the pumpkin at the pumpkin patch to carving the pumpkin. He wasn't interested in watching me carve it. I thought he would've liked playing with the seeds and all the inside gook. Owen did enjoy trying to eat the lid and exploring the new jack-o-lantern.


I'm posting photographs from the last two newborn seesions. Well little boy L was a week old. Little girl L is 2 months. Newborn shoots are soooo very difficult! It never ceases to surprise me!

Baby Girl S

Baby T

Life's a beach...

Well it is if you're a member of this family! Thanks Maibel for allowing me to photograph your family. I know we tried for a while to coordinate this whole thing. I really feel that it was worth the wait! Such fun!!!

What are little boys made of?........

How does the old poem go?...."What are little boys made of?.....Snips and snails and puppy dog tails......" Well Mr. T, is made of seeds (large ones that fall from trees), flowers, rocks.......anything interesting that can be picked up off the ground and put in his pocket. These pictures are from a session that we had Saturday morning. We walked through their very cool neighborhood of Sailboat Bend. I even got to meet the bridge tender that had been written about in the paper. (a celebrity moment!) It was such a great morning. I apologize for this posting being so late. I've just been swamped! So tonight I'm playing "catch-up".

Halloween Fun!!!

I am super behind at posting. I've had three sessions since the sisters last Saturday that I'd like to post highlights of, plus pics of Owen from the pumpkin patch that I really want to share. I'm taking a few minutes now to post some fun pictures taken yesterday at our Mommy group. The last time we took pictures of the kiddies sitting on a couch was for St. Patrick's day. At that point, they were all little blobs that didn't really move around much. We only had to have someone on hand to prevent them toppling over. Yesterday was a whole different story. Now out of the 5 little members, only two of us are yet to turn one. Owen will be one in two weeks, and Addison will be one in December. So needless to say they are much more than the blobs that they were in March. There was a dragon, a cow, a butterfly princess, and two pirates! I am proud to say that the two pirate costumes were sewn by MOI!!! Owen and Addison went as matching boy and girl pirates. Such fun. After group, Owen and I met dad for lunch at his office. (yesterday was his birthday!). Anyway, his boss, looks at Owen and says, "Oh, Ponce de Leon!" (because every mother of an 11 month old dresses him up at Ponce de Leon for Halloween!) haha

sisters pt 2

here are a few more for you!!!

Talk to you soon!


I photographed two sisters today, who not only really liked eachother, but LOVED eachother! This was a conversation that was overheard by their mom while they were changing clothes.

"R" (the older one): She's really nice. (referring to me!)
"j" (the younger): Yeah, she's nice, but she's not the nicest person in the world like you!

Wow!!! Mom's heart was about to burst!! My heart was about to burst, to hear such love and adoration between two sisters. How many sisters refer to eachother as the "nicest person in the world"?! Not only was the love evident between the two sisters, but it was evident in the whole family. It was refreshing and uplifting. I photographed the two sisters, their mom and dad, and their baby cousin. The pictures of the baby are a surprise for her mom and dad who went away for the weekend! You are a beautiful family!! Families such as yours are what I hope to model my family after!! Remember Deb, mother daughter session next week!

This post will have to be broken down into two! I just couldn't decide on pics!

Belly Dancing Birthday

On Saturday, I had the pleasure to attend Miss A's 10th birthday party. What 10 year old wouldn't love a belly dancing theme!? Complete with a real live belly dancer, jingly coin attire for all girls, and sparkly make-up. Of course, what 10 year old birthday party wouldn't be complete without trampolene jumping? I just wish I was able tos stay for the whole thing! Happy Birthday!!!

Who doesn't love Mondays??!!

I was lucky enough to be asked to take the 9 month pictures of little M. Her mommy and I were pregnant at the same time. In fact, her mommy even came to visit me in the hospital. It's hard to believe that both little guys are getting ready to hit the big year mark. This cutie will be 1 in January!!! It was cloudy and overcast all day. The sun came out for us towards the end of our shoot It gave the most beautiful warm glow while they were blowing bubbles! Thank you for letting me spend the afternoon with your guys! It was super fun! Enjoy your sneak peak!!

America's Next Top Models!!!

Oh my god, I had such an AWESOME time with Ms. M and her two daughters J & J yesterday!! This was my first time trying my hand at an "urban" shoot. Nothing like a little broken glass, weeds, dirty alley ways, buckets filled with dirty water and maggots (maybe a dead fish as well), to make for beautiful photographs. The girls (second and fourth graders I might add), really worked it. And I know you noticed how beautiful and cool their mother is! Thank you guys! It was extremely hard to only pick three photos to post!!!
