A Super, Teeny, Tiny Sneak Peek of Beautiful Abby

I can’t wait any more!! I had the absolute pleasure of photographing one of the cutest families this week! Abby is a beautiful three year old blond with a passion for running, Polly Pocket and smiling! She also has a weakness for M&M’s…which made us two peas in a pod. She was such a ham for my camera!! Her mommy and daddy were so sweet and up for any crazy idea that Abby and I had for the photo shoot. For that, I thank you guys! So here is a teeny, tiny teaser for you.

The sun and the sky were perfect! As the sun went down, it cast this gorgeous autumn glow over everything. It made for beautiful photos later in the evening.

I loved how the light was coming through the ladder on Abby’s swing set that evening. It gave the tiniest lens flare and a sweet, angelic glow around her. It was extremely fitting!

Look at those eyes!! She is going to be a heart breaker! And look at that hair!! Women pay big money to have hair color that gorgeous. Becky, Jon and Abby, I can’t wait to show you the rest of your photos. Stay tuned! I’m hoping to have them up sometime next week.

Have a wonderful weekend!

The Cutest Boy in Sistersville!

I had a request from a very special mommy (and a very special friend) to see pictures of her little man. I took these when I was home in Sistersville for Alumni Weekend. (For those that don’t know…Alumni is as exciting as Christmas, or my birthday for that matter.) I had posted photos of Brayden at my old website but Shay couldn’t see them for some reason. So here he is! Debuting on the new and improved blog. And isn’t he just the cutest!!

Brayden loved, loved that balloon! There was a high school graduation party in the shelter at the park and one of the kids gave Brayden that balloon. He wasn’t happy when mommy tried to tie it to his wrist so he wouldn’t lose it.

He wasn’t so into the bubbles though.

What fun! We had such a blast and stayed at the park until Brayden couldn’t take it anymore. I think he fell asleep on the 2 minute drive home. To Shay, Stevie and Brayden, I miss you all bunches and can’t wait for another visit this fall. Love you tons! Mwah!

It’s a Boy!!

My dear friends recently made the announcement that they are expecting a baby boy in late December!! Congratulations Emma and Kevin. I love you both and know you are going to make amazing parents. I can’t wait to do a few belly shots of Mr. Tyler James. Take care of eachother and that precious, growing baby boy. See you both next week!

Today turned into a dreary fall day. However the clouds and rainy day made the colors in my bedroom this afternoon pop! You should have seen me trying to get this shot…I’m 5 feet and 1.5 inches (I used to think that I was 5 feet and 3 quarters, but today the doctor confirmed that this is incorrect) so I knew it was going to be hard to get up high enough to get this photo. First I tried standing on pillows. Then I added a couple books…when that didn’t work, I grabbed the step stool and very carefully placed it on top of my bed to climb.  I still wasn’t tall enough. So I tested Grandaddy Tom’s handy work and stood on my mantel headboard. It worked! (My mother is probably reading this and not happy.) But nothing came crashing down. And I like how you can tell how old our house is by the different textures on the painted walls.

I also had the pleasure of hanging with this furry fellow this weekend. Isn’t he beautiful?!? Bo is a Siberian Husky and is the friendliest dog eva! I gave him my favorite squeaky toy for dogs, the Cat Burglar…which was an all time favorite of our family dog Maggie.

I don’t normally Photoshop this much, but I wanted to emphasize Bo’s ice blue eyes. He’s gorgeous! Kind of a random post today, but it’s that kind of Monday. However, I am looking forward to my photoshoots this week! I’m meeting a couple new families and I have all kinds of ideas for them! Tasha and Steve, your big day is coming! See you Friday!
