Sled Boarding

Yes, it's a little sad that my kids have to go sledding in the drive way. At least they had fun and Kaden invented Sled Boarding. (ok, I'm sure it's been done before but I thought it was cleaver.)

My Three Musketeers, a rare picture with all of them.

I love this action picture of Riley.

Even sister got into the action.

Will I Soar?

Many of you know I enjoy doing photography. I've always wanted to have my own business but have worried if I'm good enough. Anyways, on of my favorite photographers, Mera Koh is offering a scholarship for three lucky ladies. The winner gets new camera gear and bag, mentoring, website and blog, business coaching, free software the list goes on and on. It's everything you need to start you business and succeed. So, what are the requirements?

First, you have to fill out an application and submit a 2 minute video. The application not a problem but a video. I don't know how to make a video and I don't have a camera with video, nor video software. So, I decided not to enter but I kept going back to the SOAR website. Three days before the deadline I decided to enter. So here is my dorky video. Yes, I'm in the one in the Santa hat. Please keep in mind I did this all by myself and I had no clue how to edit my video. I just download a free trial. But I just had to try if I didn't I would always wonder. I know it really is a dorky video but if you would like to leave a comment of encouragement for Mera to read you can do that here. Just scroll down and click on comment and leave a message. Don't forget to include my name and number #148 so they know your talking about the dorky girl in the santa hat. Thanks to all my friends and family who have supported me in my photography endeavors. You guys are the best!!!

Meet the Twins

Ok, these boys are serious the cutiest kids ever. They were so fun and easy to take pictures of. I had a hard time deciding which ones to post, so I guess I just have to post a lot of them. And isn't their mother just gorgeous? I think so and she happens to be a very special friend of mine. I hope you like these, thanks for letting me come to play. Click on the picture to see a better image.

Here come all the B&W I love so much.

Meet Little B

Today I got to shoot cute Little B., doesn't he have the cutest smile. He sure was an angel. He loved watching his mommy and listening to her voice and he was so alert the whole time I was taking pictures.

Look at these baby blues.

Ok, I'm very partial to B&W photos.

And of course I had to include a foot shot. I love how he is spreading his toes.

Riley Doodles New Hair Cut

Riley has been begging me to take him to get a hair cut, and boy did he need it. Do you like the red highlights? He picked it out it's just temporary. Riley is so cute when I take pictures of him. He does his own poses, maybe next time I'll include the crazy ones too.

Violets First Pony Tails

She starting to pull them out.

She's done with them.

I have to admit, I've been waiting 20 months to put Violet's hair in pony tails. This was a very exciting event for me so of course I had to take pictures. Doesn't she look so cute? I think she looks adorable it's to bad the tails only lasted about 10 minutes. Oh ya, if you look closely you can see she put my braclets on her feet. She already loves jewelery

Meet Adelle

Today I had the pleasure of photographing this little angel, Adelle and her, beautiful mom. Adelle has the prettiest big brown eyes and long lashes. She was so cute with my kids and yes, I took these pictures with three kids running around us. Thanks Adelle for allowing me to capture you sweet spirit. Here are just a few photos to give mom a sneak peek. Don't worry I have lots more.

Don't they both look so happy? Adelle just loves her mommy.

I love how she is holding her hands and playing with her feet in these two.

Riley the Yoga Master

Oh, my Riley makes me laugh everyday. He told me he wants to get strong, so I found him doing yoga on the wii. I love how into it he is. Hmmm....maybe I should join him.

Inside Out

Ok, I had to do one more post today. Gabe just got back from Grandma's house when he saw Sister playing in the snow. He was in and she was out. He wanted to play so bad too, but they were just finishing up and Gabe didn't have his snow cloths on. Violet thought she was so funny making faces at Gabe. Finally, she must have felt sorry for him because she gave him a kiss. These two are very sweet to each other most of the time.
