January 11th, 2017New haircut!

It had been years since my last hair cut when I went to my friend Lynne at Mia Testerossa. She made me promise not to let it go that long again and said every 6 months at the latest I should at least get a trim. So just after New Years it was time to go again. I had been thinking it was time to go short again and this is what we came up with….

It’s finally short enough that I can do stuff with it like scrunch it up all fancy (LOL) like these pics. Everyone at work thought I had a hot date or something cuz I never do anything with my hair (don’t really know how) but it’s safe to say this hair cut was a great choice! Thanks again Lynne!

August 26th, 20139 months!!

This month Bear…

    • went to Living Treasures to see the animals. Goats tried to eat her clothes! LOL
    • went to Idlewild and she LOVED the wavepool! Almost fell asleep in there floating in her life preserver! Rode her first carousel with Daddy and he said she was confused about it moving up and down. We missed Storytime Forest cuz we spent so much time at SoakZone so wecan’t wait to go back next year when she’ll be able to do A LOT more.
    • likes to try and put ALL the puffs in her mouth at the same time. Even the bigger waffle wheel ones! I try and break them up for her to stop her.
    • started “real” crawling instead of her army crawl. But she still would rather be standing and has mastered pulling herself up on just about anything she can get her paws on! She can even cruise a little holding on to the couch!!
    • went camping in the backyard in a tent with mommy and daddy for the first time. She was FACINATED with looking out the windows.
    • has started dancing by rocking with her arms and belly and it’s just about the cutest thing ever!! She especially likes Rockin Robin on her musical push toy but dances to other kid songs and also a little to our music as well!
    • has gotten Binky Envy at daycare
    • finally got her play yard castle at the house now so we have something for her to crawl all over now and she will definitely love it more when she starts walking.
    • got her first “tattoos” (Airbrush!) at the Daycare picnic, even one matching Mommy’s bee on her wrist!
    • went to Hookstown Fair and saw more animals! But didn’t get to ride anything cuz she’s too little :0(
    • tried little bites of ice cream/Rita’s frozen ice but pushes them out like it’s the worst thing ever. We don’t think she likes the coldness of it.

May 29th, 20136 month Photo Shoot

I was lucky enough to come in contact with Melissa Prechtl through Moms and More of Robinson, a Meetup Group in our area. She’s an excellent photographer and offered the mom’s in the group an awesome deal on a photo shoot so she can update her portfolio. It took a few months for us to finally figure out a good time to meet up but it was perfect timing as Bear has just turned 6 months!!

We met at an outdoor location of my choosing, Moon Park pond! Missy scouted out the area a few days earlier to get some ideas for perfect placement, especially since we had limited time with perfect lighting as we met up after I got off of work.

I brought a couple outfits but nothing special. She brought LOTS of props! This was our first photo shoot with a professional and I pretty much drew a blank on ideas so we let her take the reigns. She had lots of ideas! First Bear was wearing a cute diaper cover on a colorful rug with a pretty headband. Lots of cute shots there! Then a little boy came over and asked if we could keep it down because his brother has Autism and is sensitive to certain sounds.

Next we switched covers and headbands and posed on a cute turquoise rocking chair that would fit in perfect with her bedroom color scheme! I didn’t get any behind the scenes shots on this one because I was on standby just out of frame to make sure she didn’t fall. It was really cute though cuz Bear was rocking the chair like a pro!

Next we moved to the other side of the pond where there were more trees and it had a more woodsy feel. First we tried to put her in this lovely vintage suitcase but couldn’t get the right balance so we scrapped that idea. Instead she posed inside a large basket with some fur in the bottom for comfort. She was able to sit great and we got some cute shots with her sock monkey!

Next we moved over to the hillside and laid out a blanket. Brought back the suitcase for some really cute poses. My favorite is where she’s reaching out for me out of frame like “mommy don’t go!”.

We also brought back the basket and she laid in there for a few shots. She looked like an angel surrounded by fur!

All in all it was a great shoot and I’m confident the pictures are going to be amazing!! Can’t wait to see them!!!

November 16th, 2012Maternity Pics are in!

A friend of mine who used to be a single mom is involved in a single mom's group at a local church and told me about it and I've been going for a few months now. It's the third Thursday of every month and we meet, eat dinner, and there is a different topic to learn each month. I've loved it even just for the support and chatting with the other ladies! Last month's meeting we had a special surprise: a local Senior who is interning with a local photographer offered to do our holiday pics for her Senior Project FOR FREE! Not only that but she gave us all a couple prints and a disc with the rest so that we can get them developed at Walmart, Snapfish or wherever we wanted! It was such a wonderful generous gift and we were all super pumped about it. My pics were taken on the 27th and I did a Maternity Theme since my little girl isn't here yet. After my set, my friend Stephanie got hers done with her two kids: Dominick and McKenzie. Then the other week I went with Tess and Skye-Marie to watch them get theirs done too!

Well tonight was this month’s meeting and we got the prints in and I am so happy with how they came out! Can’t wait to show them off at work and send wallets out to Kenny and my mom and dad and such!

So without further ado – here’s the pics!
