{Sneak Peek} Amber's 24 Week Maternity Session

I don't get to visit with my sister as often as I could a year ago and I miss her. We were all excited that they got to come visit the past two weekends.  The first to help celebrate Mr. Brody's birthday & then again this weekend to pick up my nephew from spending his spring break down here.  We planned her 1/2 way photo session, hoping for good weather, but we were in the midst of a last-minute wintery blizzard (not exactly blizzarding at our house but it was freezing & wet out).

So I did something I rarely do, I set up the ol' backdrops & did a little indoor session by my huge sliding door, in the teeny tiny kitchen.

Here are a couple sneak peek images from her mini-session.

There are a few others on my Fan page, over on Facebook, so you can catch them there.

Hey, Hey, It's a Birthday

Do you know just how fast a year goes?  As a young person you hear adults say things like "this year just flew" or "the older I get the faster it goes", and you think to yourself, "Oh.My.Gosh. can this go any slower".  Seriously treasure those moments, because it's true. Add a couple kids & life; you'll soon see just how quickly it does go.
Today is another milestone at our's Brody's first birthday.  It's also something more, which probably is more sentimental for me than anyone else here, but, it's the very last time I'll celebrate my own child's 1st birthday.
So with no further ado, here's a little recap of the Little Mr's first year in this big, wide world.
On his birth day. 

 A first visit with his sisters, who, have in the course of the year taught him many things. 
Some good, some I wish they would have kept to themselves!!

 A visit to UC Davis Childrens hospital.
 A very relieved momma, hours before we got to leave & come home.
 Such a happy little man.
First sibling wounds, thank you Gracie. 
 Finding those sweet baby toes.
Visiting with cousin Brandon.
 Learning to pull up on things...soon to be running a-muck with the sister folk.
& the 1st Halloween.

 The first Thanksgiving & his fancy sweater vest
& the first Christmas.

And finally -- HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

Just for laughs, {Minute Monday}

Okay, so it's barely Monday, but Mondays have a bad rap & could use a little sense of humor. So, for this quick, minute Monday, here's a little something to keep your chin up.

Before you ask... yes, it's a real photo, that I took, one morning when we were down feeding Mr. 101.

Construction {Just a little PSA}

Just wanted to give you all a heads up that you may notice some changes around the blog & also on the website, and possibly even my Facebook fan page.  Don't be alarmed, it's all signs of some good stuff.

I'm super excited to get it all done, which should be very soon!!!

Random Thoughts

First up, a little announcement.

I am still looking for a couple of newborns and/or 0-3 month old babies, girls & boys to model a few new props & do a couple of 'promo' shots for me. If you're interested or know someone who is email me here & I'll return a little info to you & let you know about my New Faces program.
It seems as though I'm at a photographic stand-still at the moment. I have barely touched my camera, except to move it from desk to dresser & back, since the middle-end of February.  It's not like I have just been sitting around wasting time though. I've got a couple of 'behind the lens' projects in the works & can't wait to reveal them to you all.  I've also been doing some other crafty things, there's fabrics, beads, flowers, & tons & tons of ideas. 

Here are a few random images from the last couple time my camera was out & actually in use.

Hope you're having a great week & maybe I'll find some inspiration to get out & shoot something or someone (don't worry it's not too painful).
