Quote of the day:

"Each photograph is a story captured in a single moment"

Author: M.Lopez

Photography is capturing the extraordinary meaning in each ordinary moment, and weaving these strands together to tell a story – your story - to hold, to share, to remember.

I enjoyed spending the day with these two.... they definitely kept me busy. They were the tiniest babies I've ever held... but boy are they strong!!! I hope you enjoy your pictures Jeff & Megan. Thanks for letting me be a part of capturing memories for the both of you! Treasure every moment you have with them, because time passes all too quickly.






An oldie, but one of my favs.

This is an old image of Addi... I decided to re-edit it today. This one is probably my favorite of all her newborn pictures. I dont know why, I just love it.

Addi is always such a good sport about letting mama practice on her, and try out new props :)

Ree-ree had her first taste of baby food today.... I thought there would be silly yucky faces.. but no! She loved it and caught on very quickly. This week I introduced bananas.... YUM!

4 months old....{your face is my sun}

My little girl is growing too quickly... this week she rolled over. She can hold her bottle on occasion now too. I love how alert she is... and how she will search a room over until she finds my face. I love her little fat legs, and those chubby cheekies. I love how she blows bubbles when she is upset... haha. I love looking over the edge of my bed, looking down into the basinet and seeing the biggest smile greet me every morning. I love her little giggles.... they melt my heart. I love how she totally relaxes her body when I'm giving her a bath... she's already learned to appreciate a nice warm bubbie bath. She makes me laugh when I open up her diaper and find a lovely surprise inside.. and how everytime she manages to giggle as if she knows she got me. I have enjoyed her so much... and couldnt imagine her not being in our lives now. She has been such a blessing to me.


Babys Words:
Although I am small and cannot say a word
these thoughts of my family I wish could be heard . . .
I feel all your love and the kind things you do.
I get so excited that I smile and coo.
A soapy warm bath or the comb through my hair
all your soft whispers that tell me you care.
Then wrapped in your arms it is safe and secure
protected with tenderness that is perfect and pure.
And if ever I'm messy, hungry, or cold
with just a small whimper I'm quickly consoled.
You kiss and caress to stop me from weeping
then patiently wait 'til I'm comfortably sleeping.
You make my life joyous, full of colors and fun
when I see you each morning your face is my sun.
So, if you aren't certain your gestures are felt
look deep in my eyes and I'm sure you will melt.
They say I'll grow fast like the blink of an eye
but do not be sad at the time that goes by.
Because I'll remember all you've given and shared
to get me through life completely prepared.
I'll be the great one who stands out in the crowd
your hearts will be happy I'll make you so proud.
I thank you so much for all that you do
and never forget that I love you, too.

I was reminded today while visiting friends and their 1 day old little boy.... how fast our babies grow up. While holding him there in the hospital... I couldnt believe that only 4 months ago (today) that I brought my 3rd miracle into this world. I couldnt believe that only 4 months ago.. my little Addi was that tiny. I am still amazed when I look at my children that I actually gave birth.. its still such a miracle to me. God did such an amazing thing.... the way life comes into this world. I could do it 10 more times, and I would still find it amazing. New life is amazing.....

Addi in a basket

I made this hat today, and just had to take some pictures of Addi wearing it. I stuffed her in a basket and off we went... to the front porch!





A daughter is a miracle that never ceases to be miraculous...full of beauty and forever beautiful...loving and caring and truly amazing.

More of one of my fav little models... always willing to take pictures when Jeshyca wants to. I can tell her mom is going to have a time with this one when she becomes a teenager.. but thats ok... b/c I'll be in the same car following her around and spying. heehee.

As my little buddy would say "nuh uh , its yemenyade"

Shes back!!! We went to my in-laws tonight for dinner so my camera decided to tag along... :) Addi-Ree is so serious sometimes. Its like she already knows "the look" photographers like. I just hope she keeps up with this... it will make my job a little easier.

I think she is just the CUTEST baby ever!!! (then again, I'm partial)

My two girls....

It seems funny even writing that..... I knew with both of them even before the ultrasounds that they were girls. Addi looks so much like Kailey as a baby, that its scary. I think there is already a special bond between them... and I hope it only grows stronger with time.

This photo is for my hubby! My friend got this cheer dress for Addi and he's wanted a picture of her in it since she got it. I also snuck his Jersey out of the closet (sorry dear) I love Addi's face in this shot... its her game face!! haha. This will be Addi's first football season..... her daddy will have her rooting for the skins in no time!!!

Yes, I realize that sunday & monday were skipped. I apologize... but like I've said before sundays are very busy for our family & then yesterday was a holiday & we spent it by the river. Today I got back on track.

Snuggle time with mommy... She is so content when I'm rocking her. These are some of my favorite moments as a mom.... the way she stares at me during our cuddles as if she thinks I'm the best thing there is, and there is no one quite like me. Its a wonderful feeling to be adored.

Addi just cracks me up with her many faces! I would like to call this one her "What you talking about Willis?" Face!!!

who said bribes dont work?

It seems as though lately my only willing model is Addi... and I think this is b/c she doesnt have a choice. :) For this shot... I bribed with a dollar (wasnt good enough) so then I had to take it to the next level. "How about mommy takes you to bootville???" It worked ok.. but I am in need of some new bribes. Any ideas?

Ok... I'm so pushing it tonight!

This was taken in front of Addi's mirror in her room! I love how shes looking up at me as if to say "here she goes with that big black thing again" haha.
