Has it really been THAT long since I blogged?

Wow, I hadnt realized how long it had been since I blogged!! I was completely consumed preparing taxes this season, I am seriously considering not doing it anymore! It basically takes over my life From Jan-Apr, and thats no fun! So I need to catch up sharing some pics!!

How about a few from our cruise I talked about in this post! We had a really good time and the islands we visited were amazing!! It would take me forever to post all the cruise pics, so how about a short little video!?

Models for a day....

This past week I had the pleasure of taking these two cuties pictures! They both wanted to enter a pageant and needed a few pics of themselves. I think they had a great time being models for a day!

Happy New Year's!

Another year almost gone...for me 2008 is a blur! Time flew by this year and I feel like we barely kept up! All in all it's been a pretty good year, we've had a few ups and downs but nothing to bad.

I want to send a thank you to everyone who has let me photograph them or their children. My skills have grown tremendously over the past year and I couldnt have done it without willing subjects! So thank you, and I hope you all love your images I captured as much as I do!

Here's to a bigger and better 2009!!

A Fun Urban Christmas shoot....

This family is always fun to work with, and although my ideas may seem a bit cazy at times they are always willing to play along!

Happy Holidays!

My neice & nephew...

My sister & nephew came to visit during Thanksgiving weekend, I hadn't seen them in 3years!! He has grown so much in the last few years, he's almost a man, or at least the size of one! And my sister is about 8 months pregnant, so I'll have to share a few pics of her when I get a chance!

Anyway this is the holiday card I made for my sister, the middle shot of my neice was actually taken this summer when I took her Sweet Sixteen pictures!

Holidays & a little relaxation...

I never had had a chance to blog about Turkey Day, so this is my belated wish that you had a wonderful holiday with your loved ones!

I dont think I have ever been so busy in my life, I spent forever getting my house in tip top shape for Thanksgiving, and all the cleaning & cooking was exhausting! Next year I am seriously thinking about going out of town or something, so if anyone has any suggestions or ideas for holiday get-aways please leave me a comment! But even though it was a ton of work, it is always fun to spend the day with the family! The kids had a great time playing bingo, pin the hat on the turkey and they had a Thanksgiving scavenger hunt! And of course we had WAY too much, like always, but everyone brought some yummy dishes & wines!

Anyway, come Sunday Dec. 7. 2008 this is where I will be for the next 8 days...
Well, on a diffrent ship, but you get the idea! This is from our last cruise on the Carnival Inspiration in Cozumel, Mexico. This year we are sailing on the Carnival Miracle to St Maarten, St Kitts and St Lucia with about 30 family members. My cousin is also getting married onboard, so this will be my first time shooting wedding pictures on a cruise ship, I'm a bit nervous about that, so wish me luck! I'll take TONS of pics and can't wait to share them!

Beautiful Girl, Beautiful Dress!

You may recognize her from previous posts, this is my cousin and my muse! She's always willing to pose for me even when she thinks my ideas are a little crazy! We've taken so many pics together, we can tell what the other is thinking by just the look on their face:)! And best of all we always have fun!

These were just a couple of extremely rushed shots, we both LOVE this dress and I had so many ideas I wanted to try. But things didn't go according to plan and we just didn't have the time...but we will, eventually, get another chance to shoot some amazing pics of her in this dress!

I actually won something!!!

Today I logged into one of my favorite photography forums and they had just announced a photo scavenger hunt! The prizes for the winners were awesome, but you had to be quick, first 3 posts win, so I quickly got to work on finding all the items (along with my ever-so-willing helper, my daughter Jaden)! A while later, and exhausted from the manic search, I uploaded pictures in a frenzy and later was happy to learn that the work paid off, I was lucky winner #3!!

Here are a few of the items we had to find (and please keep in mind these are just quick snapshots:))...

A tea cup

A flower

A candle

Something that spelled the name of the forum

And a picture of ourself in the mirror w/camera!
