Merry Christmas!

Wow my blog really suffers during the holidays doesn't it??

I know a lot of you have seen my Christmas card but I wanted to post it on here as well. My husband would be upset if I didn't give him credit for this card idea and I don't blame him cause it is super cute! I said I wanted to do something different so he built me this stand.



I did come up the idea of raising Keatons price though lol. Originally it was going to be marked down from $5 to $4 but we thought that's not how Keats rolls.

Pictures that didn't make the cut (which I didn't really process).




Now that I think about it I should have put these on the back ;)






I wish everyone a beautiful, blessed Christmas with the ones you love!

Sleep in Heavenly Peace

I can never get over how angelic children look when they sleep. I think it is the closest I could ever get back to that moment when they are born when I realize God made mine just for me. That they are blank canvases waiting to become the person they are and that I am responsible for so much of that person. It all hits me again as I watch and wander what they are dreaming of. I love that feeling.




Of course I love when they wake up too and that blank "I just woke up" stare.




It never takes Keats long to break into a smile after waking up though.


A different day but same messy hair <3

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Ok so this is my picture of my tree from last year. But I love it so much and my tree hasn't changed so I reblogging it..cause I can ;)




While decorating this year Blaze said, "Hey look Mom, I decorated my tree!!"




Which of course caused me to laugh and brought the camera out so he had to decorate himself too.



My kids are awesome.

I'm dreaming of a Canon Christmas..


hint, hint ;)

Playing Catch-Up

Am I the only one out there with a ton of unedited personal photos? I really hope not, but it seems like I have a million. Little by little I am trying to work on them...and someday I would like to do a few year in review books. But that is a whole new mountain to climb.

Here are a few pics I found from earlier this summer I snapped of Blaze and his awesome cousins while chilling at my moms :)











Only 999,996 to go!

Awesome Peeps

I had so much fun taking pictures for my friend Heather, aren't they the cutest??!!








How pretty is she?? So jealous of her curly hair.


I <3 freckles!


Hello gorgeous eyes!


Heather and Brian are recently engaged! If I am getting the story right he sewed wings onto a pig and put the ring inside that. I love creativity in a proposal..almost as much as I love this picture.

Cowboys and Bows

You know it's going to be a good time when, "Someone brought their guns and hat" is one of the first things said at a session!

Gorgeous family!


This little guy is seriously one of the easiest kids I have ever photographed. So smiley and adorable. He loves the camera..almost as much as he loves cowboys.



When you are this little it is impossible not to look completely adorable.



I got some great pictures of Tex looking at the camera decked out in his gear (how cute is that!) My lovely assistant genius husband got this idea to set up this picture. Being a cowboy is hard work and you have to catch your sleep when you can.



I so love this shot, I can just see it hanging in his room.

Dear Abby

Ha! Get it. Anyways, moving on from my dorkness. I am so lucky to get to photograph such beautiful children and Abby is definitely one of my favorites!









And a quick outtake...who wants to take bets on whether or not she caught the cookie her dad tossed her? ;)

Time is flying by

One year ago...



today..


Same lens, same shirt but so many changes. The lens that I used then was rented and I now own it. The shirt barely fits and drifts up in the tummy.

And the boy, oh the boy. His curls are gone as much as that baby look. His once perfectly straight teeth are now a bit crooked from a fall. No longer is it, "Can you help me Mommy?" It's now, "You not help me, I help me" There are no more one words, it is all sentences now. There are distinct likes and dislikes. There is a personality that is growing everyday.

It's a bit sad, bittersweet. But it is also very beautiful and I embrace the changes as much as the memories.

Yard Work

I have been getting so much better about taking snapshots of my boys without making them "portraits" I took a few while working around the yard and even managed to get one of Blazey before he ran in. He hates being outside for too long.

I love these boys so much..in fact gotta go squeeze them right now.









He looks so Emperor Palpatine..I think that is the right name??

Halloween

These really aren't the best pictures ever (on board flash even, gasp!) But I had to show off the incredible job my husband did with the costumes.

Keats wanted to be He-Man so James made his whole costume. With the exception of the sword. One of James friends was making his kid a He-Man costume too so he made both of the swords and James painted Keats. They both made amazing He-Mans!

For those of us that don't remember exactly what He-Man looked like here is a picture of a toy (how sad that I had this in my archives)




And here is my little Keats-Man.









He loved it!!

Blaze actually wanted to be something scary this year! Which is so different for him. James also did a lot of work with the fur on his clothes.






My husband rocks at being a Daddy...and a husband.

Electric Blue Eyes

I never really noticed until I started taking pictures how many people have gorgeous blue eyes.





I really like this one in b/w too.



Just a little sneak peek of a gorgeous family.

Adorableness!

It's the return of the cutest kid ever! I took E's pictures about two years ago and he just keeps getting cuter. I seriously want to bottle this kid up and take him home. He is so, so smart. I love his voice and the way he says Miss Bobbi... and how polite he is... and the questions he asks..ok let's face it he is awesome!



Just one quick picture for now. It's been sick time at my house but everything is looking up and I can get back to work!
