My first newborn is turning one! And she had a fabulous birthday party! She was a little sleepy and overwhelmed, but she certainly liked her presents.  My kids had a grand time on the moon bounce and in the little ball pit.

I had such a good time and I think children’s parties would be amazing to photograph more regularly. It’s like a wedding lite–I think it may be even more crazy than a wedding!

The GORGEOUS decor:

What a beautiful day yesterday was! My son loved showing off his first real word (cheese!) and my daughter just wanted to pretend she was a Top Model. This was between ugly cheesy model grins she learned from “Good Luck, Charlie” haha. And my son was ever the mommy’s little helper–18% grey cards make an excellent prop.

**That card is something I use to help ensure your portraits are always the right colors and the right brightness. I may get a little creative with edits sometimes, but I want your skin to look human!

Also, PLEASE send in your photos, so you can win a free session with me! I know you guys want a free file too!

And check out the model call under the Promotions tab. You may qualify to just hang out with me and get some free pics out of it!

And I am in love with it.

These were all taken with my Nikon F100 with Kodak Portra 400 VC and Fuji 800z. Developed by Richard Lab in LA and scanned by me. (I should have let Richard do that too!)

Imagine what I could do with fresh film, my sharper lenses and a proper light meter! I am so energized to shoot!

And hey, how do you like my new site? Check out the promotions tab!

I skipped day 23 because was just finding and posting an old Facebook photo. I want to *TAKE* pictures.

This is a picture of Archie and I in the place that we first met–our bed. I had Delilah on the floor next to the bed two years earlier.

So, I let the project fall to the wayside. My typical m.o. I get a bit disorganized, miss a day doing something, get overwhelmed, and just let it go forever.

This project got overwhelming when I was supposed to take a photo of staying in. Well, my husband isn’t home during the pretty light. So I skipped a day. (Here is Archie and I staying in today.)
17:

Then we were supposed to go out and have a stranger snap a picture of us in auto mode. Date night? HAH! Let a stranger touch my camera? HAH! auto mode? no such thing. So, here is Delilah as Brian (see the beard?) and me out on a date.
18:

Day 19 was “when they’re gone”. This was just pure laziness. I hadn’t done 17 & 18, so I wasn’t going to skip! The horror!
When my kids are gone, we make the food actually taste good to us. With these things–and more. And then I still have to add in more chili. Because brian is a wuss.
19:

And “When they’re here” there is a lot of tantrums. I like to email with my clients, so they cannot hear the screams.
20:

My babies’ “hands.”
21:

And TODAY’s! I am all caught up!
A face. Just a PORTRAIT of my daughter. And the attempts to get a non-creepy one.

I chose the one time to try a portrait with Archie that he *didn’t* want to nurse! So here I am forcing him to sit with me for one second…(1/200 of a second). I thought I would get a beautiful nursing portrait. HA.

Oh well, he is still super cute.

I am not the smile-sensuously-at-the-camera-while-blowing-a-smoldering-kiss-to-my-man type. I also have a lady ‘stache and need to get to the salon soon. So, I decided to fishy kiss him while thinking, “come home and save me!”
He got me a remote (again) for Valentine’s Day and the kids were all about posing running to the LCD screen every time they heard the shudder.

and the out takes– trying to get my kids to kiss me.

I love any excuse to use my macro lens.

Here is my heart-shaped ebay engagement ring. And my Jared wedding band. We went to Jared!
I wanted a heart diamond so bad. I probably would have said no if he had put anything else on my hand.

My daughter’s *thing* right now is crafts (sounds like “crapts”). She will go up to Nana’s room and disappear for hours. She sits and colors and glues construction paper; and sticks stickers on things.

Yesterday wasn’t quite routine since it was a weekend. But they sat and did Valentine crafts at the kitchen table.

I wish I had photographed Brian, Archie and I at Angeethi, our favorite Indian restaurant. We go every Sunday while Delilah is at church with Nana. We have started calling it Church.
