My Baby is Back from the Hospital

Ok so that is a misleading title lol. My 85 fell out of my bag so I had to send it away to the Canon hospital to be fixed.

I was really worried that it wouldn't be as sharp so as soon as I got it I took Messy Face Marvin to help me test it. I tried to convert to b/w to take away from the messy face :)



It's still sharp!!! Might even be a tad sharper so I am so happy. And I am pretty sure they put magical powers on it cause check out that smile.

But of course Keaton can't let somebody else have attention so a shot had to be taken of him as well so James took this with my 50.



Nice job honey, and sweet comb over Keats!

And then of course Blaze wanted to also take a picture of someone so he snapped this one of Keats outside.



He doesn't know much about the dappled light yet but I think its a pretty cute shot still!

He makes me happy...



Ahh, a real Blaze smile, eyebrows raised and everything! So hard to come by with this camera avoiding boy. I used to call this his I'm smarter than you look cause even at a young age he just had this look on his face when I explained somthing that made me think he was just humoring me. That he already knew all I was telling him, even though I knew he didn't.

This boy really is my sunshine. He is at a trying age but I can see what an amazing kid he is even in his few testing the stystem times. I cannot believe he is going to be seven in only a few weeks. That means he will be ten in three years, and three years after that a teenager..and three years after that driving. This is making me sad cause I know all too well three years is more like one second in mommy time.

My name is Teeton!



This little guy is such a camera hog...though of course I am not complaining. I was taking pictures of all the boys playing catch (and will post as soon as I get to edit). Keaton kept running over though when the camera wasn't pointing at him and saying, "Me! Me!" while getting all up in the camera's grill. I got some extreme close ups.

Have you heard that song "That's not my Name" by the Ting Tings. It's incredibly catchy. Every time it is on Keaton just sings, "My name is Teeton" the whole time. Just thought I would share that random story with you.

Cuties Times Three!

Ok I tried to cut down the number of images on here but I couldn't sorry...And then I thought about combining some of them onto a storyboard. But let's face it I am lazy ;)

Check out my new chair that I found at the antique store though. I loves it...I tried a softer not so in your face kind of vinatagey with some of these.

Happy Fathers Day!

Who is this handsome goofball of a man?



Only the worlds #1 dad...and he doesn't even need a coffee mug to prove it ;)


Not growing up with what I would exactly call a role model as a father, I know how much dads impact their kids. I am so happy every time I see my kids with James and every time I hear Blaze tell him that he is his best friend. I am sure Keaton will be saying this soon too. I couldn't have picked a better man if God allowed me to make a custom order myself. I love you James with all my heart.

More Zoo!



















I am pretty sure this guy was my favorite animal of the day!


I love our zoo.

Stop looking at me swan!

Err..well cockatu I mean. There is something about the zoo that makes me quote Billy Madison. Probably because it is one of the greatest movies of all time.








I love living so close to the zoo! We buy a year pass and it pays for itself it seems. I will try to space out my zoo pics though so I don't give everyone animal overload.

Ice cream, You scream!



Ice cream stands are seriously the best part of summer.

Now before I post these picture that consist mainly of Keaton I have to do a disclaimer. My friend Ryan said my blog makes it seem like prefer the Keats..which is so not true. Blaze just really doesn't like getting his picture taken a lot so I try to respect that so I can really enjoy the few times he asks me to (like for his birthday shoot coming up where he actually asked me to do seven year pictures this year!). And add to that the fact that Keaton is a HAM. I think it's clear in this pictures who enjoys the camera more right now lol. Just clearing my name ;)

How Does He Do It??





Somehow he looks so sweet in pictures..but I know the truth. Ok he is really, super sweet and gives out kisses like no other. But trust me he has a serious mischievous streak :)

Just a sidenote- I love underoos! They look so cute on kids and as Blaze would say they show all Keats "Cool muscles"...cause his muscles are cool?? Crazy kid.


And if you are bored, a little 35 second video I like to call. Yay!...Ahh No! Cracks me up everytime.


P.S. It's an older video, I promise his hair isn't quite this shabby right now ;)

My Favorite Redhead

Besides myself of course ;) While at my mom's I snapped this picture of Kiki real quick. I love her freckles, reminds me so much of myself as a kid.



Since it was just a quick picture I didn't do a custom white balance though..I fixed it up a bit in ps but there is also this quick solution ;)



Speaking of awesome redheads what do you think of this cut/color? I have an appointment Saturday and want a change.






I also like this cut...and about 20 more. Decisions, decisions.

Love this kid!

Just a couple of random shots of the Blazinator.






He cracks me up daily.

Like this story for example.

He is pretty adamant about not liking girls for the most part. But he did tell me the other day about how he thought this lady in a Star Trek episode was really pretty. He told me he thought I was pretty too but I was his mom so he couldn't think I was "as pretty". He said, "I asked Dad if he thought she was pretty too and he said yes...he didn't mention you at all though. I must think you are prettier" Lol, I love how he totally threw James under the bus.

I rented a lens last week and when I picked Blaze up I asked if he could help me just test out the sharpness real quick. He said, "Wow I was just getting ready to ask you if you got any lenses in the mail today so I could help you test them?" Mmmmhmmm.

Either way here is the random picture, and the lens is sharp! Didn't even touch the eyes here. (it was the 70-200 f/4 is just in case you were wondering)

Two Two Cute!

Sorry for so many pictures, but I just think Abby is so cute I couldn't stop myself! I tried to condense them a bit on a storyboard before I got too crazy.

I really think 2 is the best kids age in the world. They are starting to get their own personality and are just so much fun!
