old fashioned boys and their pretty sister!

Just finishing up this session, and I wanted to share a couple of edits. They looked like they were from back in time, so I aged and textured the photo a bit.

And here is their pretty little sister! I love the pink accents!

I am so behind in blogging!

This is my absolute busiest time of the year. If you are waiting on a sneak peek, or for proofs, please know that they are coming. I am working hard trying to get caught up.


Remember those Seniors that I don't do? =)

Well, sometimes I have to make exceptions! I met Ariel when she was 4 and we moved into the house behind her house. Her daddy needed some one to watch her in the mornings before she would go to pre-school, and since he left for work at 6am, he wondered if I could do it.
Every morning her daddy would carry her over and put her on our couch and cover her up and she would go back to sleep for a few hours. I then would get her up and give her breakfast and get her on the bus.
The next year she went to Kindergarten and she still needed a place to stay, so I continued to keep her. She slept on our couch until she was in the 6th grade!
Ariel is also on the soccer team with our Olivia and she gave her many rides back and forth to practices and games. So we owe her a lot!
Here is a peek at your photos Ariel! I hope you like them!

I am a little behind, but

About 6 weeks ago, just before he turned 18 months old, this little guy was diagnosed with a terminal brain tumor. It is so very terrible. I talked to his mama on Friday night and she said that he only had days left to live. Immediately after I got off of the phone I knew that I had to do something for this family. I took Trinnen's newborn and his 6 month photos, so I got busy designing two books with the photos from both of those sessions. I worked on them all night (literally...I was up until 5am...). It took me about 10 hours to get them both finished and sent to print. I then contacted my print lab and asked them to rush the printing so that I could have it for them ASAP.
As many of you know, Trinnen passed away yesterday afternoon surrounded by his family.
Cancer is a terrible disease, and this is an awful situation. Please pray for this young family during this difficult time.

here is a couple of pages from his newborn book:

and here is a couple of pages from his 6 month book.

The books will *hopefully* be delivered tomorrow and we will be taking them along with me to his calling hours tomorrow afternoon.
Please bear with me while I get back on track with my editing.

Baby J is a big boy now!

I first met Mr Jackson when he was in his mama's belly!

Then I got to see him a few weeks later when he was born....He was a good sleeper!
Then he came at 4 months! So smiley!

Now he is a big boy! He is two, and he did a great job!
When he first got here he wasn't too sure about sitting for photos, so we played with some farm animals, and took photos of the horses, and cows and a ball or two....then he saw that it was fun and he sat so nicely!

What a handsome little guy!
Your proofs will be up soon!

Baby R is one!

This is my favorite from baby R's session! I love the red petti with the damask backdrop, and this was one of her best smiles of the day!

You know I love these polka dots!

This is one one year old that loved her birthday cake! At one point she was in up to her wrists!TTFN! Martha

Miss M is a big girl now!

I first saw Miss M in October 2006! Look how cute she was!

This is one of my favorites from her session! She was so ticked off at me!
Now Miss M is THREE! She is so big!
My favorite of the day!
I love when she crinkles up her nose when she smiles!
I just love three year olds! When I taught preschool I was the three year old teacher and I loved every one of them! It is such a great age!
Miss M was such a good little girl! She did just what I asked and always had a great smile!
