Presley's BFF

This is Allie and her brother, Jacob. Their mama, Jennifer, I met through some mutal friends and it's like we've been friends forever. Many, many things in common, particularly photography. And Allie and Presley play very well together! The most recent playdate, we pulled up to Allie's house and Presley said, "no hitting". And almost simultaneously according to Jennifer, Allie said before we arrived, "I'm gonna share my toys." And so the girls were in the zone and played SOOO well together! Jen, here's your sneak peak!

Boys will be boys!

These two boys came into the studio and were bouncing off the walls! Literally! It was fun to get to interact with these little guys, since there's a little more estrogen running around this house usually. This picture was the second picture I snapped! There are more cute ones to come, but wanted to get this one up and give Mom and Dad a sneak peak (something I haven't been able to do a lot of lately)! I think they may have been a little worried we didn't get a good one when they left.

Miss Emily

Emily brought her parents over for a shoot last weekend. She did excellent and we captured some fun ones. Here are a couple of my favs...without showing too many!

Holiday Cards

Finally I have some some holiday cards templates available to view. Click on the following link to see a slideshow.

holiday cards

More coming soon! Stay tuned!

Due to the first comment, I felt I needed to clarify. I bought (actually traded some photography) for these templates. (Many shouts out to Keith Green.) I just plugged in my pictures and text and viola. Then why did it take about a week to get them up still? I've decided that my calling might be more photography than it is "messages". I have made a couple cards here recently, and once I'm assured that they have been mailed out and received, I will post them. I still enjoy both and that IS a blessing! P.S. Thanks, Kerri for your encouraging words.

Happy 40th Anniversary

Just want to brag on my parents for celebrating their 40th anniversary this past Saturday. They got married at the ripe ol' age of 17! Forty years is a LONG time and they have stuck it out through the hard times and didn't give up on their marriage. They are true role models for not just THEIR kids but all of OUR kids as well. And the whole extended family for that matter!

My sisters and I had a brunch for them on Sunday to celebrate and gave them the following picture of all their grand kids. It's not perfect, but that's the beauty in it! They LOVED it! Happy Anniversary Mimi and Papa! We love you!

Maternity Session

Here's a slide show of what you could expect from a maternity session. This is also a great example of coordinating colors. Click on this link

Thanks Rachael and Andrew and Baby Addison for letting me share your photos with everyone!

Family Bonds

This family came in for some family photos and lots of individual pictures of the kiddos! The best part is they are in my own backyard!

These two were sweet to one another, at least in front of the camera!!! :)

On the move, Luke!

Mr. Luke is about to turn one in a few days, and what a cutie he was with is blonde hair and blue eyes. He wanted to be on the move and there was nothing going to stop him! So we were very accommodating and took him out into nature (right around the corner) and explored the railroad tracks. We started and ended at the studio for just a couple indoors. He did great! I enjoyed meeting him and his nice parents! Happy Birthday, Luke!

Color Coordination

A lot of people needlessly stress about what to wear in pictures especially when they are trying to dress an entire family or group. And I have been there!! r So I wanted to post a couple pics of a good example of color coordination. This is a friend of ours and her mama for some sweet mother-daughter pictures. They brought their own version of a Mary Poppins bag, and it made for some great shots! Thanks, girls! It was fun!

New Developments

I now have online proofing and ordering for ALL our convenience! The galleries are password protected to maintain your privacy, but you can share with your family and friends. Stay tuned!

Pumpkin fun at the Arboretum

This is a little late, but better late than never. We went for a "picnic in the park" a couple of weeks ago and had some fun with some friends at the pumpkin patch at the arboretum. We since went back and took my big camera and took some more pictures. But I wanted to share a couple from this day. I have been so bad about posting pictures of the girls and giving updates.

Here are the girls with Jackson and Judah. I like this one because the two in the middle are totally playing footsies!!

Teagan, 12 months. I forgot her bow in the car, but she rarely leaves it on for more than a nanosecond.

Presley, almost 2.5 years. She picked out her own shoes to wear this day (and most days for that matter).

I told Price (hubby) this morning, there are about to be some big changes in the Pointer house. Presley is paci obsessed! The girl is psycho about her pacies. She found a tub of them during Teagan's party and carried them around. There are still some stragglers laying around, but I think I've finally found most of them and put them back up. We are gearing up for passing them on to the paci fairy or Santa or someone to give them to the babies that need them. It's getting ridiculous!

And as far as Teagan's obsessions, she still likes to nurse! All day and ALL night in fact! The last couple of nights have been really rough for some reason and each morning I wake up thinking somethings got to give. But if you try to cut her off early or refuse to appease her, all hell breaks the middle of the night!! So you can imagine what happens next. What Teagan wants at 2, 3, 4 in the morning, little Teagan gets. I think she's cutting her molars though, in her defense. Weaning is definitely on our agenda.

More pink cheetah birthday fun!

Here are more fun pictures from Teagan's birthday party.

Teagan with her birthday hat on before we sang "Happy Birthday". We took too long and she had to have a mini meltdown. But once the singing began and she had a cake in front of her, she was fine. Although she didn't get into the cake that much. Over the next couple of days she sure helped me out eating it though.

Before the costume came off.

The pink cheetah cake that was very delicious. Side note, I totally forgot to get cutlery for the cake and ice cream. I was digging forks and spoons out of every nook and cranny of the kitchen. But nobody had to use their fingers! yay!

Birthday girl's big sister, who helped her eat her smash cake. In this pic, she has black lips and fingers to prove it! Unfortunately I didn't get that great of photo of Presley's costume, but it was cute.

The pink cheetah pumpkin decor! Surprisingly there wasn't much pink cheetah stuff out there to spurce up a party theme. So we improvised and painted a pumpkin thanks to Michael's for a good crafty idea.

Teagan's first birthday invite

My little baby just turned a year old right before Halloween! We had a pink cheetah themed costume party for her. It was a lot of fun to host and prepare for!
