I'm an editing fool

Anyone recognize this cutie?
He belongs to Mary Margaret (Slaton) and Austin Brown. His name is Slaton and he is super cute! I'm working on his pictures right now, but thought I'd take a little break and post this picture.
Love it!

I am ridiculous!

I forgot that I already posted some of Thomas. Do you see how frazzled I am??

Another of E:


what's goin' on

hey friends and fam!
we've been even crazier than ever recently. hence, no punctuation in this post.
this weekend i had 5 shoots! including my first event (a first birthday party) on saturday.
we headed up to birmingham after the birthday party to attend one of my good friend's engagement parties.
on sunday morning, i had three "mini sessions" with three equally adorable babes that reside in the hammer.
anyways, this weekend-- my best, best friend is getting married, and so the busy life continues-- however, in a wonderfully fun way!
i still have lots to do around here to prepare for 5 friends that are staying with us for the wedding. it wouldn't seem like much, but with a busier (than heck) toddler running around un-doing everything that i do... things tend to get complicated.
so... this week, i will spend every free second getting ready for my bestie's wedding and editing photos.
i'm just plugging along and learning new things as i go in Photoshop.

meanwhile, on the home front -- Chappell (i have to capitalize her name... since she is muy importante) is obsessed with The Little Mermaid (also muy importante)... just got her first tricycle... first barbie doll (ariel) and is talking up a storm. for any of you that are worried about the barbie doll and choking (i know you are- ha), i stripped ariel of her high heels and crown. i think that's why they were recommended for children 3+. ariel seems safe now.
chappell is hilarious. she is at the best age... perhaps that is why baby fever has been kicking in full force??? God has wiped away the traumatic experience {that is} life with a newborn baby.
we get a few tantrums from time to time but it's worth it.
she repeats everything you say, including:
"oooohhh Lordy" ---- oops. it could be worse, right??

here are a few pictures from eleanor's shoot in birmingham yesterday-- i have so many more pictures to edit-- this is just a little preview. a work in progress, if you will.

More of Thomas

Well, since my photography blog isn't exactly up and running yet-- here are a few pictures I took this morning. I'm not done with the editing process yet, but I'm working on it!
In case you didn't know, I've decided to just go with it and start a business-- it will be official January 1st.
So... right now I've been keeping quite busy with my fam and future business!
Hope you enjoy!
Thomas was precious. Even after he took a tumble mid-shoot!

More to come, later...

Punkin Paintin'

Had a great weekend with the rents. We went to the farmers market... watched football... and had some fun watching the Chapster paint a pumpkin.
She loved it! And this time, she didn't even end up dirty!


Don't worry. The beer was empty.
She did, however, get a drop and said:
See below.


I love Fall.
I also love my Walmart wreath by Better Homes and Gardens. Doesn't look too fake, right?


In other news, we're keeping pretty busy around here.
I'm about to finish the first course in my professional photography certificate program at AUM.
So far, I have 4 shoots scheduled for this weekend-- I think I'm learning a lot and I will share those photos later!

My nephew, Will

My sister in-law, Meg, was kind enough to let me practice on Will a week or so ago out at Hampstead.
Chappell tagged along, and tried to get in on many of the shots.
She's not exactly camera shy.
Anywho, here they are. Will is a cutie and was so patient after a long day at school!

So you think these two are related? Williams genes seem to dominate!

Baby Willow

I just wanted to share a few photos from a little mini session I had with baby Willow on Friday.
Willow belongs to some of our closest friends. Reed went to law school with lil' Willy's daddy.
Let me tell you - she is oh-so-cute!
I think baby feva is starting to kick in...
and that means that Reedo's starting to get nervous!

What I've been up to:

Toddler Wranglin'.
Photography Class.
Going to the park.
Engagement parties.
Best pal's weddings.
Sister visits.
Bama games.
Figuring out my new Canon 7D, Photoshop & Lightroom.
and of course...
Watching The Little Mermaid.

Life's been crazy (good) lately.
This past weekend we were in Auburn for Reed's best friend's wedding.
We got home yesterday afternoon just in time for Chapellina's nap and then headed out to the pumpkin patch.
I love the pumpkin patch. I was so excited I couldn't help but bite my fingernails on the 30 minute ride out there. Reed asked if I was nervous about something. Nope-- just super pumped.

Chappell loved the animals.
As you can see below, she did not inherit her mother's fear of birds.


How sweet is this?
Chappell and her daddy at the wedding on Saturday:


Congrats, Wes & Casey!
