Sisterly Love

This is one of my absolute FAV poses to do when a baby is involved : ) I have several pictures like this with my own children and they are always a hit!!! So this was my 1st session after the dreaded fiasco and it really did remind me why I love doing this... So Thank you Jen for pushing me back into the groove I am forever indebted to you!!!

Home made Valentines Day cards!!!

Please excuse the horrid picture it's from my cell phone, my camera batteries are charging all 3 of them lol!!! This was my idea for my kids Valentines Day cards..... I had them hold their hand out like they were holding something took the picture. Made a template in Photoshop on a 5x7 picture added the red/pink color and wrote on them then printed 20 of them.... Then I whipped out my paper cutting board and my trusty exacto knife and started cutting then I inserted the dum-dums!!!! Wa-la a super unique V-day Card that is shamelessly self promoting (notice the website address) and super cute!!!


So I live in Oklahoma the state where a 1/4 inch of snow shuts the whole town down... No really it does lol!!! Well I went to wally world to get all the stuff for my kids Valentines day parties and no one was there it was SWEET!!! Come on I can't be the only person that loves having the store to themselves lmbo!!! As I was standing there staring at the obnoxious amount of valentines day cards and  thinking how my kids are gonna argue that they wanted Wizards of Waverly and Transformers over Hannah Montana and Spider Man when it hit me..... I'm a photographer why don't I shamelessly promote myself while making the kids a super personal Valentines Day card.... So I have an idea and I'm praying that it works lol!!! I will post pictures as soon as I'm done even if it doesn't work!!! I would post them now but my kids are at school and I kinda need them to do the pictures lol!!! Are you doing anything special for your kids???

Ok I seriously can't be the only parent out there with to much going on picky kids and a husband that thinks good food it Taco Bell : / I am constantly trying new things and ways to weasel my kids into eating something besides chicken nuggets and fries with a side of mac and cheese lol!!! So I love chilli cheese fries no really like it's BAD!!! I would eat chilli cheese fries everyday of the week if I could (hey now every Mommy has to have some guilty pleasure I just happen to have 20 bawhahahaha) anyway my husband use to eat this meal in High School and they called it Trojan Treat (their mascot lol) so he made it one day and we've been hooked!!! You get any kind of frozen fries make them per the directions take a can of manwich  and make it per the directions when the fries are done dump the manwich on top of the fries add some shredded cheese throw back in the oven till the cheese melts 5-10 minutes wa-la a super simple easy yummy meal!!! I get my chilli cheese fries without the killer heart burn!!! Plus I'm super sneaky and I add celery and carrots chopped up really finely and add it into the manwich so they get even more veggies without knowing it ; ) Let me know if you try it or like it!!! Feel free to add any recipes you might know!!!

I get asked all the time about photography and how I do this and that!!! Well 1st thing I wanted to say is it doesn't matter how much your camera costs... You have a $30,000 camera and still take crappy pictures... I have taken some amazing photos with my P&S (point and shoot a little hand held camera that pretty much everyone owns nowadays) that have even won some awards : ) When I 1st started out I had a $600 camera and I totally rocked shoots I have since upgraded not because my camera was by any means bad I just needed a new 1 and I wasn't giving my assistant a better camera then me lol!!! So I'm going to post a SOOC (straight out of camera no edits nothing straight from my camera to here) then the edited version I will tell you everything I did to it!!! Any questions please feel free to ask!!!

I did a little mini session with my 3 children!!!

I don't really know how to explain the photo, children are so innocent and I don't think they stay that way near long enough... I want my children to stay kids as long as possible, I want them to believe in the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and unicorns!!! Be nice to someone and they in turn will be nice to someone else and so on and so forth.... I try my hardest to do my best to be a good person, and I just wish more people would!!!

Why Hello All!!!

Ok so it will take me sometime to get with the program and to figure out how to do pictures and what not but have NO fear I WILL do this ; ) I love you guys and thank you for all of the support!!! I
