6 Months!

My blogging days are few and far between now, but I haven't abandoned ship. On Monday our sweet boy turned 6 months old and to celebrate I took some formal portraits of him in my studio. Dave surprised me by staying up late the night before and staining this new floor for his photos. He asked me last week (seeing my dying tulips in the vase), if I'd like him to get me some flowers, or if I just liked picking my own. I told him I was fine to pick my own. (Who needs a man to bring them flowers when they have one to make them studio flooring?! ;) ) I am still not done sorting through the photos. I might never get done, but I have quite a few already that are keepers.

Happy Valentine's Day (Tomorrow!)

In an effort to avoid doing housework, I thought I'd share some of the Valentine's Day photos I took last month, as my mom bought these adorable dresses for the girls but I haven't even shared the photos with her yet! It was a quick job, as I needed to get a preview ready for my Valentine's Day event.

5 Months

Yesterday was Griffin's 5 month birthday! I put him in this dapper plaid shirt and took a few snapshots of him while he played with his squirrel. Last week I took photos of him in the bowl that I photographed him in when he was just a few days old. I plan on doing "big" photo shoots for his milestone birthdays (6 month, 9 month, and of course, the big 1 year), but in between I just grab some "birthday" snapshots, often whatever comes to mind that day.

I realized I had only blogged all of maybe once this whole month. And the month just flew by, and I barely noticed. Between daily household chores, my commitment to a 20 minute (almost) daily workout, cooking, and editing, blogging is definitely becoming a back burner task, although I'd still like to do it every now and then. Since my spare minutes usually take place when Griffin is napping, I really have to consider where all my time is going, and I feel slightly guilty every time I sit down at my computer for non-work related purposes when there are more *important* things to be done. But I'm still going to plug away every now and then. I have been taking photos daily, and usually editing at least one or two from most days of the week. Some of them seem repetitive, but my boy will only be this little once. So I'll gladly take the repetitive.

Frozen- The Magic of Childhood

We bought Zoe some Frozen themed dresses for Christmas, and I couldn't wait to get outside and photograph her in the snow in her Anna dress. She is a pretty good model for me and was eager to go out in this very thin dress, despite the cold. (Fortunately we were just shooting beside the house). I love to do themed photoshoots with children. They are only little once, after all. I would love to do one with Reese in the Elsa dress, but I ordered both in an 8 so I'm not sure she'd squish into it…
