Hello Mary Sunshine!

I was so excited to hear that MP was now six months old and ready for her milestone photos. We headed over to the Founder's Garden at UGA on Saturday morning and MP was a perfect doll. She was so excited to explore all the flowers and grass. We were able to pull her attention away and get some great shots. It was very difficult to pick my favorites. I could have posted so many more.

Thanks again for meeting me at the gardens C. and B. Enjoy your sneak peek.

Welcome to the world little one!

I was so excited to hear that sweet A. had finally arrived. She kept her mommy waiting a little longer than expected but she arrived a very sweet and perfect little girl. At seven days old, I expected a sleepy baby who I could mold and twist. She was not very sleepy but was so patient and awake. I just love the shots we were able to get. Little A. has a big brother who really loves her to pieces. If she cries in the slightest, he is the first to rush to her side. One thing I noticed about A. is that she looks just like her brother did when he was a newborn. I expect her parents will be labeling the newborn photos this time.

Here is a sneak peek:

I can just hear the collective sigh... awwwww!

We are family.....

I had the pleasure of photographing my neighbors while their grandfather and cousins were in town. I was able to use my favorite field for the session and photograph some beautiful people. What could be better? Well, if it had been cooler... but we had a great time.

Here is a sneak peek!

Everything I have learned in life, I learned from my kids...

I am sure I have posted about Peyton and Grayson and their love for horses. Grayson is just beginning to learn how to ride the horses and is doing very well but Peyton has a real passion for riding. She says that it is her dream and she puts forth such effort and determination when she is riding.



Both girls participated in a horse show last Saturday. From the start little things just did not go right for us. In Peyton's warm ups she had some trouble with her horse which lead to a few stressful minutes of panic for us both. Thankfully all ended well and help arrived just in time. The bad thing was that she had to jump on another horse quickly without warming up and do the show. Even after having such a scary incident happen to her, she rode beautifully and was able to finish the show. If I had been in her situation, I would have jumped off the horse, kicked the dirt, and quit all together. But, not my animal loving Peyton. She got back in the saddle and did her best. I was a frazzled mess of nerves but she was poised and confident. Her dedication and desire to ride horses amazes me. I learned a lot from her that day.

Because I am a proud mommy, here are a few photos from the day.

Christmas in July

Picture this, it is December 1 and you have no photo of the family for your Christmas card and there are no photographers available to take your photo, the malls are packed and you do not feel like battling the crowd, there are a million other things that you want to be doing rather than trying to find the perfect gifts. You just want to enjoy your time with family and friends. Sigh! I bet you wish I could have done your Christmas shopping in July.

WELL, I AM HERE TO HELP!
Go ahead and get your Christmas card done NOW when you and the kids look nice and tan, get them addressed before August has ended, and order pictures for gifts for families and friends. You know Grandma loves new photos of the grandchildren. She would love to have a photo gift! Then in December when everyone is running around you will be enjoying Christmas parties and friends.
