Gallery at Doctor's Office

As many of you know, a couple months back I had the honor of helping decorate the walls of a doctor's office! Jennifer, one of my great clients' husband, Dr. Leung, works with a group of physicians who just opened a new location for their practice in Lewisville, MD Pediatric Associates.

They helped me pick out the following images for 6 separate galleries throughout the office! I haven't been there to see them hung in person just yet, but Jennifer text'd me these pictures!

Here are the two waiting areas. We went with big galleries!!

And then these are in the hallways!

(Love how Isi and Oli are pointing at their big sister, Miranda! And a picture of them is up there too! And the other picture of the twin boys, we learned as we did this project, are actually patients of Dr. Leung, also shown in this picture! So all these hang by his patient rooms!)

Thank you to ALL of my wonderful clients who gave me permission to use images of their beautiful children!!

Flowery Field

There was (it's now been mowed) a flowery field behind our church that had been tempting me for weeks to come and take some pictures there of the girls. Well when my photog friend, Rachael, called to go shoot, I jumped at the chance. We loaded up chairs, girls, dresses, cameras and headed out in the early evening. It was hot, there had been been no nap. Just sayin'...

I also just happen to have gotten some new color actions that I was wanting to play around with.

Addison's picture I really liked it just the way it came out!

I have my eye on another little field of flowery goodness. So if you like the look, we can head over there for an early evening session. I might load up the girls (post nap) and try it out soon!

Greenville Suzuki Workshop

I had the privilege to photograph for the Greenville Suzuki Workshop. Individual posed portraits as well as candid photographs were taken throughout the workshop. It was a success on many fronts!

Baby Finn

Baby Finley made his debut and I met him at two weeks old. Although we got a couple shots where he looked like he was sleeping, it was merely a long blink! This baby didn't want to miss a thing!! He was so good and just watched us while we moved him about and positioned him this way and that!

It was such a pleasure! Here's his birth announcement!

Thanks Atok Family!!

Baby Lila

As you can see, there was an influx of babies around here! (So you can imagine my baby fever! But I'm waiting patiently on hubby to say it's again time to procreate.)

Lila is now five weeks already, but when she came for her first photo shoot, she was a mere six days old. My youngest subject to date (besides my own). And we got sooo many cute ones!! This was my favorite hands down!

And her announcement shows my next four favorites!

She's still just as sweet as can be! Crystal, thanks again for letting me get my baby fix and take pictures of lil Lila Grace!

Chicken, Brocolli, and Rice Casserole

I love me a good casserole! This is a good one that my mother-in-law cooks! It's a crowd-pleaser and the ingredients store for a good while, so it's nice to cook for playdates, pot lucks, and just about anything else!

Chicken, Broccoli, and Rice Casserole

3 chicken breasts, raw and cubed
2 cups of minute rice
1 can cream of chicken
1 can cream of mushroom
1 regular sized bag of frozen broccoli florets
2 -2 ½ cups of water
Small bag of sharp cheddar, shredded (reserve some to sprinkle on top)
Garlic salt and pepper (a lot of both!)

Mix together and pour in casserole dish. Sprinkle cheese on top and bake at 350 for one hour.

(If I've already posted this here, sorry for the repost, I didn't have it in the recipe category, but it seems like I have posted this...)

Toddler time at the arboretum!

I met Jackson and his folks at the arboretum for some spring pictures! It was a little humid and we quickly found out, lil Jack didn't like the heat. But once we found some shade, he was in the mood for a little of this...

and this...
and this...

and this.... (my hands down favorite!)

Thanks Nicole, Jaime, and Jackson!

Baby Harrison

Baby Harrison came to see me when she was about 3 months old. She gave us curious looks, she gave us big smiles, she cuddled with mom and dad, and then she took a little nap! Mom and Dad couldn't give her enough kisses! Baby Harrison took advantage of some of my products and purchased some mini-accordion brag books for 3 Mother's Day gifts!

Here's her birth announcement:

And the back:

I could take pictures of sleeping babies ALL DAY LONG!! A couple more of my favorites!

Thanks so much, Jennifer, Kevin and Baby Harrison!!

Baby Sophia

Baby Sophia is now almost...4 months old?? Could it be!! Iy-yiy-yiyy! (how do you spell Iy-yiy-yiiyy?)

Anywho, here are a couple of my favs!

Anna and Lysa

My sister's friend, Dagmar knits. So she knitted me some CUTE baby accessories. Remember all the bluebonnets this year? Yeah, me neither! But Dagmar found a small little patch out in McKinney. So we met out her way and got her beautiful girls in the wildflowers. Thanks, Dagmar for everything!

Spring Card

Isi and Oli wished their family and friends a 'happy spring' via mail with this cute card!



Their big sister, Miranda will be a senior next year and she's going to be one of my senior reps. If you know anyone who will be a senior next year (2010-2011) and they haven't taken senior pictures and would like to earn print credits by being a senior rep, tell them to contact me!! Basically anyone they refer for senior pictures, they both will receive print credits!!

Aunt and Me!

These three adorable kids have an awesome aunt who wanted pictures with them and took advantage of the mommy 'aunt and me' special.

And here's some with their fabulous aunt!

Thanks again, Breanne!!

Wow, it's been a while...

I have been a busy gal lately! Aside from all the shoots I've had lately, this is a brief recap of what we've been doin' on a daily basis in the front yard.

A lot of this...

And this...

And this...

And a smidge of this...

We got this fun car when Presley turned three. Well neither of them had a clue how to drive it, so it was more trouble than it was worth. Well, this year things have changed! They have places to go and it's been a bit hit! Honestly every time they get it, my mind flashes to when they are going to be driving a real car and driving off together!
Anywho, I have lots of pictures to post and honestly don't have time to be gettin' all sentimental...
