New Blog!!!

I’ve been bugging my hubby for a long time about my blog.  Not that I’m trying to be a blog snob, but the neon green color and small pics just wasn’t working for me.  So, this is officially my last post on this blog.  I’ll leave it up just in case anyone wants to see older posts.

Please update your links (or RSS feeds) and point to my new and improved blog at .  Cya at the new blog!!

Heather + Dax

This will be my last blog post on this blog…sniff, sniff.  But the exciting news is that I’m getting a new blog! Woohoo! We’ve been working on it and it’s almost finished. I’ll put the new link up when it’s ready (probably tomorrow).  So here’s my last set of pics on this one! Adorable Heather and Dax are getting married next year so I got to do an engagement shoot for them. Dax has style (Heather does too but I rarely get guys who are dressed way cool). So it was way fun for me!

What a catch

Well, for all you single girls out there, this is one great guy! On top of being way cute, he’s smart and got a good head on his shoulders (oh, and he loves his momma)! This guy has got way too much going for him. It’s really not fair to the other guys out there. You can stop drooling now….

NO BOYS ALLOWED (seriously honey….don’t read this)

One of my favorite lines in a movie is from “My BIg, Fat, Greek Wedding”.

Toula Portokalos: Ma, Dad is so stubborn. What he says goes. “Ah, the man is the head of the house!”
Maria Portokalos: Let me tell you something, Toula. The man is the head, but the woman is the neck. And she can turn the head any way she wants.

Here’s the trick ladies..

So the guys in our lives need to feel they are in charge….the head of the house. They don’t like nagging wives, girlfriends, etc. always trying to tell them what to do and when to do it. This is not anything new. But when I first got married, I wasn’t about to let some guy be the head over me after living on my own for 6 years.  Jay isn’t bossy and never tried to “Lord it over me” but for some reason, I just felt like I was more qualfied to be in charge. Let me tell you about some of those fights! If you ever want to know what happened to our first vacuum cleaner…

Anyways, I soon realized that if I still wanted my husband to be fond of me, I had better find a better method to… well I guess you could say, “get my way” at times.  So I called upon the wisdom of Maria Portokalos. Ah! I realized that I could be the neck which is physically lower than the head but actually stronger and more powerful with all the control it has over where the head decides to go. SCORE! So for all you girls out there that can’t stand it when you hear sermons in church about how the husband should “rule” over the wife, please remember how God designed the body and though he may be the head, YOU are the neck. You play an argueably bigger role than the head.  Don’t tell your husbands this (let’s just keep letting them “think” they’re making the decisions),  just quietly and patiently steer and turn the head without it even realizing it!  And everyone thinks that we’ve never had a woman president. ;)

I’ve had a lot of seniors lately. I seriously LOVE seniors. They are so full of life and dreams and will do pretty much anything you ask.  This was one of my favorite all time shoots. She was SO much fun to shoot. I had the MOST fun (another quote from all time fav movie “Shag”!

18 years…

It’s 1:30 in the morning about now so I can’t be held responsible for anything I write…spelling errors, inappropriate comments, it’s all acceptable. This week has been senior week for me. Lots of seniors getting ready for their last year before the final freedom they’ve been waiting 18 years for. Don’t you think it’s funny that we used to think that graduating from high school would be the ultimate freedom and that we could do and have anything we wanted? And now, most of us have jobs, spouses, kids, etc. Not a terrible amount of freedom.  And ironically, we probably had a lot more freedom when we were in high school and didn’t have very many responsibilites. So this is the challenge for me. Not letting all the things I “must” do take away my freedom to enjoy life. It seems the older I get, the harder it is to not get in a boring old routine that robs me of life.  So as I climb this hill of life, I will fight with everything in me to still live like I”m a “senior”.

And here’s my inspiration…senior #1!  She was way laid-back and cool… totally fun!

Blue Bubblegum Booty!

A little riddle to start your day….

“What happens when you give your 15 mos. old a blue bubblegum snowcone?  It stays blue as it makes its way through and out of the body.” Ummm…..yea, that’s what I meant. You can imagine my surprise when I went to change that diaper! And to top it off…it was so blue that it stained his little booty bright blue! I had to give him a bath and scrub pretty hard to get his white, little, bottom back. Do you think all of his insides are blue too?!?!

Singing in the Rain…

Have you ever had so much to do that you just get completely overwhelmed and do none of it?! I totally do this when I have a lot to do. I just kinda drift off to this land far, far away where there are no deadlines or people depending on you and camp out there for a bit.  It’s easier to just ignore it all than to start working through the long list of “to-do’s”.  It’s like I’m pleading “temporary insanity” for just a bit. So anyways, that’s why I’ve been MIA on the blog scene lately…temporary insanity. I have so many pictures that I’d like to blog, that instead of doing a little here and there…I do nothing! So here’s my attempt at entering back into the real world (man, I already miss my fairytale land…).

I got to shoot an adorable little girl this weekend. She was way full of energy and pretty fast on top of that! I’m definitely glad I didn’t go to the gym that morning! She was totally taken with her “princess” umbrella and had a lot of fun twirling about.
