Another gorgeous belly

So it seems the preggo people are flocking to me lately. I love it because they have all been gorgeous but also because they all booked newborn sessions too and those are my fave! I think this gorgeous belly might take the cake though. She was stunning to say the least and totally up for anything which any photographer LOVES. She has seen these and gave me complete permission to post these. I think they are beautiful and can't wait to share them.

Such a cute baby belly

I just had to post these real quick because they are so cute! I didn't realize three of the four are smooching pictures until after I was done with them but oh well. Everyone needs to see a little love once in a while (0: I had so much fun with these two and cannot wait to do the little guys pictures when he gets here.

No I'm not dead, I just feel like it

So I have about six sessions to post sneak peeks from and then three from this weekend but I have been practically dying in bed since wednesday. Ben had to take the last two days of the week off work because I couldn't get up, let alone take care of fat baby. I have had the crazy 104.7 degree fever for four days. It has dropped a bit but 104's is pretty much the average. I finally went to the dr. today who pretty much told me I was a liar or that my thermometer was broken. I hate doctors sometimes. No, I am not a liar (I am brutally honest just ask my friends) and my thermometer works just flipping fine thank you very much. Anyways it's a virus and the fever is finally down to about 101 so things are looking better. My eyesight seems to be suffering now and I am assuming it was from the high fever so I absolutely cannot edit pictures. Tomorrow will be the day for that I am assuming. The good news though is I lost 6 pounds. Although I would happily have it back to feel better. Ugh. Oh and one of my best friends has the virus. I know, because her little midget gave it to both of us. She had a high 104 fever too. See I am not lying. (0: So anyways, lots of pictures coming soon.

yay! I can post pictures again

So blogger is not being mean to me and it is letting me post pictures again. Go back and take a look 2 posts down to see the ones I wasn't able to post the other day. Here are a few more to share. I should have posted these weeks ago but spaced it. It is the famous mr. michelin man and he's all grown up.

Updated my schedule and going to Alaska.

First I need to say that blogger is still not letting me upload images. I keep getting weird server errors so I am not sure what is going on.

I do want to quickly say that I have updated my calender through the end of June. Please go to my WEBSITE and look under my schdule section to see what dates and times I have available still. I am crazy booked for March and most of April although there are a few dates left in April. For June I will booking only one appointment at the beginning of the month because I am doing a trip to Alaska to do photos and will be taking sessions while I am there. That will for sure fill me up for the month will more than enough editing. (0:

I am so very excited to go. We moved from Washougal to Prince of Wales Island and a town called Craig when I was a freshman. I was devastated and it was really hard on me at first but I really did end up loving it there. I got off the rock (as we like to call it) just weeks after graduation and moved back here. The last time I visited was 5 years ago so it has been a while. Ben and Zach will be going with me and fat baby gets to get loved by grandma and grandpa here at home. Anyways Ben has never been and I am beyond excited for him to go and experience "real" fishing. He thinks a 10lb fish is big. I always laugh hysterically when he says this. So anyways just wanted to share this fun news. Go lookie at the calendar if you want any spring/early summer pictures. I am getting new appointments booked just about every single day so make sure to contact me soon.

the cutest baby in the whole world

I have had a ton of sessions over the last few weeks so have lots to share but I just had to share these first. He IS the cutest thing. I say so.

So I forgot to also post this. Fat baby is officially not a fat baby anymore. He is just seconds away from walking and is just cuter than cute, but because I am his mom I still can call him whatever I want. I took on the challenge of taking a picture of him every single day since the day he was born. I think I have missed about 5 or so days which I think is pretty stinkin good for my really horrid memory. On his month birthday every month we of course take his picture, but we also do his footprints. Today I had my scrapbooking/stamping class that I teach here at my house every month and he wanted nothing to do with dad or anyone else here. He smiled, laughed and cling to my neck for dear life. He has never grabbed ahold of my neck before, or wanted me over someone else for that matter so it made my day!!! All night long it was a game to try and hand him off to Ben just so I could get him to laugh and cling harder to me. I loved it. Sometimes I just need to feel needed and today was one of those days. Anyways I needed to post these pictures because they are too cute not to share. When I was spending time at the Art Institute of Portland doing applications, resistering for classes etc I came across Cargo. It is it really amazing store that brings in all kinds of neat finds from other countries and I fell in love. The ladies were so helpful and gave me a killer deal on all of these chinese wooden boxes (see fat baby sitting on the green one). Next time you are in Portland, you must check it out. I changed my mind about the AI but am so glad that I stumbled upon Cargo in the process.

Thank you!!

Thanks for the incredibly large amount of sweet emails and comments on myspace about my site. I am so excited to have it up and am so thankful for everything that I have right now. There are a few people that haven't been able to see the site. Don't fret, sometimes it takes a day or two for it to be seen by everyone for some weird computer reason. So check tomorrow and you should be able to see it if you haven't been able to yet.

Oh and something so inspiring that I wanted to share. My best friend Cori sent this to me and it is so amazing. I hope you all watch it too and walk away with a bit of inspiration, humility, and desire to live your life to the fullest. Thank you for sending it to me Cori. I love you!
Much love,
