boys love chicks

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

i went to JoAnn Fabrics’ today looking for Easter props. i wanted some fluffy little chicks and a white backdrop. i found these little guys….which Jayden LOVES!but they don’t really stand up very well….i also bought some felt which, as i found out, is not what i was REALLY wanting. (i have a problem of mixing up fleece and felt). so my 6 yards of felt will be going back to JoAnns’ for 6 yards of FLEECE.and (by the way) i did not plan on taking pictures of Jayden with the chicks when i set this up this afternoon. i draped the felt over a chair and put the chicks down just to see how well they photographed. once i was done, Jayden came over and wanted to sit right in the middle of everything. which was pretty cute!i DO plan on buying seamless paper one of these days, but for now my fleece/felt will have to do! i have a long list of photography wants. which is really less long than it is expensive.

it’s fun to be one….

Friday, March 5th, 2010

i had the opportunity this past weekend to photograph a one year old birthday party. i have to admit i was a little nervous considering i have only done family birthdays, but this was a friend and i really wanted to do it. these are just a few of the photos/moments i had the pleasure of capturing…. enjoy!

my little valentines….

Wednesday, February 10th, 2010

i have been waiting for the perfect time and day to do the boys Valentine photo shoot. i had planned on taking their pictures inside with my new backdrop stand, but since the weather was so great i started brainstorming for what we could do outside instead. outdoor pictures are my favorite…. and honestly what I feel I am best at, so what i came up with first was the boys on our old bench. (Jason actually asked me to marry him on this bench). i was so scared it might fall apart when we were moving it across the yard. at our other house it sat in front of our koi pond…. now it sits under our big tree. its been through a lot. i hope it hangs on for a few more years, especially now that i see how great it looks in pictures. the boys did a great job today! we warmed up with just the boys standing on the bench…. (the X & O are from Hobby Lobby. i bought (and painted) them for the boy’s Valentine pictures last year). Jason was so great, he knew i was getting frustrated with the sun on Peyton’s hair, so he went to the garage and next thing i know he’s holding an umbrella over the boys for me. he’s such a good assistant!then it was time for the bribery (heart shaped lollipops from the $ section at Target). bribery works so well sometimes! this is one of my favorites….
hey Jayden, is that sucker good?
this is my other favorite…. Peyton is SO HAPPY and look at Jayden’s tongue!i thought about getting the wagon out at the last minute. I’m so glad i did, i think they turned out cute, although i forgot to straighten this one in lightroom.Hey Sucker!Happy Valentines Day!
