Growing Up

Here's a few favorites of Miss Ashley that I took this weekend - seems like a couple days ago I was doing her newborn shoot! These babies just grow up too fast.

Apparently, she likes to give the finger.

I liked that one super bright at first, but I think I'm going to do another edit too. I just love the overexposed look sometimes. :)

And this one, I think is just too funny:

I wanted to give you an update on Hayden. He has been discharged from the hospital and is recovering nicely, although he still has a long road ahead. Kids never cease to amaze me....

Here's a picture of him before he was discharged, courtesy of my Dad's cell phone.

Mamaw is doing well too, she's got another 2 weeks before she goes back for the next heart cath. The man that killed my coworker was formally charged with capital murder a couple days after they arrested him. So maybe things can get back to normal.

Wellllllll, maybe normal is asking a bit much.

Need your prayers!

This week has been rough for everyone, to say the least. First, the killings at Virginia Tech. Didn't involve me personally, but very disturbing to say the least. Then, a co-worker murdered by his fiance's ex-boyfriend. Next, my Mamaw gets news that she has failed her stress test and needs a heart cath. Friday, while I'm waiting to hear about how her cath went, I get a phone call telling me that my nephew, Hayden, has been in a car accident & is in ICU. Bless his heart, he's only 3 & I'm sure he's terrified. He's doing much better now & has been transferred out of ICU. He has a broken neck, which required placement of a halo; two broken legs, one which required surgery (2 rods & several screws to keep everything in place), and casts on both legs up to his hips. He is not paralyzed, thank God.

Mamaw had 2 stents placed & has to go back for another heart cath in 3 weeks - her kidneys couldn't take the additional dye required to visualize the other areas of concern. She did great, and is coming home today. :)

Here's a pic of little Hayden - I posted this back in December when he came up for Christmas. Please keep him in your prayers, as I'm sure his road to recovery is going to be a rather long one.

Beautiful Brianna

I love finding old pictures that I passed over, for whatever reason. It's like finding a $20 in your jacket pocket that you hid from yourself.

This is Brianna, I shot this back in October. Isn't she lovely?

Extreme cuteness overload! Oh, and NUDITY!

Took a few pics yesterday before the bad weather came rolling in... Old Man Winter finally decided to take a hike but now April Showers are here. :( Ah, the joys of Mother Nature!

And this just cracks me up... that big belly! Not the most flattering angle for her boudoire shoot debut, you think?

JulieM likes her bedhead here :)

You know those beautiful shots with the shallow dof where you have your child hold something out & the focus is on the "something"... anyway, I thought I'd try that with Tucker's lollipop - naturally he bit off a big chunk right before I shot. It just doesn't work out when a little brother is around. HAHA!

The Boys

Anyone who knows my boys, knows I have a terrible time trying to take their picture. Whenever I try, a wrestling match erupts. :) But I managed to get this right before Jackson tackled Tucker!

See. Told you.

Make Up Your Mind, Old Man!

I wish Old Man Winter would make up his mind to return to the South Pole where he belongs. I think he's worn out his welcome.

I decided not to succumb the kids to freezing temperatures for the sake of art. (Okay, okay, it wasn't exactly freezing, but it felt like it!) I've been digging through some old stuff.

Since I've posted lots of BWs lately, thought I'd throw in a color version :)
