Boys will definetly be boys!

As a photographer, I don't think there are any sweeter words than "I just want to capture our day to day lives"...at least not for me. When a client asks me to come in and just document life as normal, I almost jump for joy...not only because they are fun sessions, but my favorite types of images, and as a mom, to me, the most important. So when my favorite veterinarian asked me to come document her boys' morning, I was thrilled, and man did we have the time. Lots of jumping, tickling, hiding, running, castle building, leaf throwing, and most of all, laughing!

Dr. C I'm saving the best for you but here is just a sneak peek!

By the way if anyone in Plano/Allen is looking for a vet, Dr. C is the most fabulous one out there and I'd be happy to pass along her info!

Coming to the Big Apple

As mentioned previously, I will be traveling to New York City for sessions and have confirmed and booked my dates for April 23-26th. I have one session booked for that time and would be open to taking another if you or anyone you know is interested.

This will be my first time in the Big Apple, although I've dreamt of it all my life and feel like it's already a home away from home! I'll be doing a little field research into who indeed has the best pizza of the city, but based on my reading thus far...I have high hopes for Grimaldi's in Brooklyn :) We'll also be taking in one of the last performances of Rent before they shut down production in June. So exciting!!

If you or friends or family are interested in the New York sessions please email for details. Thanks!

For Rita

Well now that your children are all probably driving cars, finally, your sneak peek. Thanks so much for hanging in there and waiting until my life calmed down. I think it will be worth the wait!

Well, it's official--I'm coming to Seaside/Destin!

I had tons of interest but plans fall through and I want to keep a waiting list while i'm there in case anything comes up or I have more time--so please keep emailing/writing if you would like me to photograph your family in Destin the week of July 7th-11th.

I know I've been a very, very bad blogger as of late and I apologize to those who read Devine Inspirations religiously. As many of you photographers out there know, January is a tough month to scour up any creativity you might have left after the Holiday Crush. To be quite honest I'm struggling with January Burnt-Outness (I just made that up) so I don't have anything to post except a picture of my Sweet and Sassy Gabby at her Sweet and Sassy 5th birthday party this past weekend. I've got lots of sessions to proof so new images coming soon, I promise.

Well after a week battling strep I am now officially back to work! And still trying to get to all these emails, etc. that have piled up again...sheesh.

Anyways I promised a client that I would put the word out--anyone who is traveling to Destin during the month of July 2008 and would be interested in having me do family pictures on the beach during that time, please let me know. I need at least 3 clients while I'm there to make the trip (travel costs would be split by each client) and I already have one interested.

It's me again.

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great holiday!!

I'm still officially on my vacation but start shooting again this weekend and then easing back into office work on Monday. I peeked at my emails and realize I have lots and lots of emails to return so please hang in there while I work to get in touch with everyone who contacted me on my 3 week break.

Lots of changes coming up and I promise to keep all of you informed.

I wanted to update about my baby girl Maddy too, as I saw that many of the emails from you guys were asking about her.

Maddy spiked yet another high fever on Christmas Eve (just after a fun-filled Christmas Eve car accident on Stemmons, more on that some other time) which continued to rise on Christmas Day and ended with 106 fever, a febrile seizure, a call to 911 and a mad rush to the ER. We spent Christmas Night together in the ER hospital bed, hooked up to an IV of antibiotics and trying to calm her from all the needles and x-rays and tests. Nothing showed up and so today we had an ultrasound of her renal system (kidneys, bladder, etc) to see if there is something causing these crazy fevers. I should know something next week but it has been scary, if you all don't mind saying a little prayer that they will find something. I don't think there is anything worse than not knowing.

On a happier note my middle child turned 5 this week and I wanted to publicly wish my precious Gabby a very happy birthday. I can't believe it's been 5 years since my little girly girl came into our lives and brightened them every day since.

More soon! Thanks for hanging in there with me. Despite all the illness, it was great to have some time off!
