tahoe..

May 29, 2008
well, we are vacationing in tahoe this week, before heading down to yuba for my sister’s graduation. the weather isn’t quite what we expected, but i’ll pretty much take tahoe any way i can get it:) the boys and i got to head down to the beach yesterday afternoon to get some energy out. it was really chilly and windy, but that doesn’t stop the boys from having a blast! i love watching the two of them together. such loved between them. my boys.

i took these photos last weekend in eric’s dad’s garden while the boys were helping grandpa plant. i need to post pictures of that, but i while going through those pictures, i came across these, and i couldn’t help myself. i like when i have images that work together. i have also been spending some time perusing other photographers sites, looking for inspiration. these happen to be inspired by the talented alicia bock. these come no where near her stuff:) there is something about the tones in her work that is just so calming. i struggle with this style in my portrait work, but i’m loving how it works here. maybe these might just find a home in my kitchen somewhere.

seriously.

prepare yourself…

May 17, 2008
for little boy overload!
i can’t help myself. the summertime is upon us (atleast for the next few days), and we are soaking it up! i actually got the kids outside to play before 8AM this morning! it just gets too hot in the afternoon to ride bikes with their helmets and all. so, i took advantage of the morning light to get some pictures of the boys, and i’m SOOOO glad i did. some of the best pics that i have of the boys together!
please look at dylan’s face. those lips aren’t just beautiful, they are the best pouting lips i think i’ve ever seen! (sorry angelina :)

and for those of you that know dylan, know that he is a daredevil, determined to do things WAY beyond what a 2 year old physically should. and because of that, he spends most of his time falling and ending up in very precarious situations. lucky for me, he’s the toughest little boy i’ve ever known, and he’s not a cryer. the only reaction he had when he fell in this picture was a scratchy little “mom”. i’m SO glad i captured this picture. it’s most definetly dylan.

and now for my precious boys:

i know there are way too many pictures in this post, but can you blame me?
we finally had some nice light coming in to the neighborhood this evening, so i grabbed our little neighbor, and took a walk towards our little park. isn’t she too much? i can’t get over her, and those dimples! and i must say it’s nice to have a willing participant!
so, thanks miss lexie:)

mother’s day…

May 12, 2008

i had a great mother’s day! we celebrated with eric’s family on saturday, and the boys had so much fun playing in mima and pipa’s beautiful backyard! a visit at mima and pipa’s isn’t complete without bubbles…as you can see in the pictures of the boys:) this little creature has been our guest for the past several days. we have had the pleasure of watching it out our front window. it’s mommy comes and feeds it, and gives it flying lessons regularly. it’s so sweet to watch, and the boys are enjoying it! they watch more than i do, and they are often giving me updates as to it’s whereabouts. this morning eli came and got me, cause the mommy bird was near with a worm in it’s mouth, but he couldn’t see the baby. after watching the mommy swoop down into this bush, and quickly fly away, we figured it out. so, how could i resist the photo op? our cat is walking around the house letting everyone know how mad she is cause we haven’t been letting her out. we also have a bunny running around that finds it’s way into our backyard. i have yet to capture it, it’s really fast! so anyway, that’s what’s happening around here;)
i hope everyone enjoyed their mother’s day!

a new website…

May 8, 2008

okay, so the last month or so, i’ve been working on a site. i know, i know, i just got my other one.
it just wasn’t cutting it, in my opinion:) this new one has client proofing…(no more proof blogs:) and you can place an order straight from the site! this will (hopefully) eliminate some confusion when it comes to ordering. not to mention it’s BEAUTIFUL…atleast i think so.
i still have a short list of things to change…some commas in the wrong places, a few sentences that need to be edited, you know that kind of stuff:) but i couldn’t wait to flip the switch (go live)! so the next few days, when i have a free moment here and there, i will be making some small changes. thanks to miss jamie, for her editing skills, and my sweet husband for putting up with my never ending “work” it’s ready for you all to view. so….take a look, let me know what you think, and if you see ANYTHING that you think should be changed, re-written, or something you love, let me know…i need any and all the help i can get! oh, and in the next few weeks i hope to add details about a “belly to baby” package, and a “first year” plan. just working out all the kinks, and making sure it all makes sense. so when i get that up, i will probably ask you all to take another look:)

alright, go
to check it out!
the link is always on my sidebar, too:)

and just because i can’t post without pictures,
here are some of the boys yesterday:
