I couldn't post one of Landon and not Alli. I have always loved this photo of my newborn baby girl. It was so windy that day and yet I just had to take her to the ballpark to meet my parents and show her off :) It's funny how you can remember silly things about when a photo was taken and what was going on when you took it huh? I lightened the photo and added a bit of "pop" using curves in PS.

I found these photos while going through my scrapbook stuff tonight...I took these when Landon was just about a month old and I felt so proud of myself. I draped a black sheet over Alli's headboard and put a boppy under it and v'oila, photo background! This was a good bit before my big leap into professional photography. All they needed were to be scanned and touched up a bit and now I can have one printed for my wall. All I've had was a photo of Alli done at Target hanging now for five years and I've been meaning to fix up Landon's now for two years. Off to the printers just in time for baby number three!

Just when you thought life couldn't get any better...

Am I the only one that can't believe a month has already gone by? What a blessing this beautiful baby is! Happy and healthy!

Chasing the Snow

We got a late start with our day today so the kids showers came at about noon, and so did the snow, so it was a race to get out of the water, get dressed and then get outside back into the "snow"! The kids were so excited!

As I was watching my little girl lovin' the outdoors, it occurred to me that I wasn't going to receive the "mother of the year" award by having my kids outside in the snow with wet hair, so we ran inside and blow dried her hair as quickly as possible and when we made it back outside the snow had stopped, hence the look below...which quickly turned into a smirky smile when I told her that we would jump in the car and CHASE THE SNOW!

I had no clue where the snow was headed but I drove towards Minden, it seemed smart enough at the time. Then the "ding, ding" came from the dashboard letting me know that the gas was low and in the scurry hurry that we left I left my purse and all forms of payment at home, no biggie because the snow started up again not but 15 minutes down the road so we pulled over, but by that time Landon had fallen asleep. Alli loved it!

She is wondering why (below) the snow isn't just piling up in her hands like it did in Colorado :)

Lovin' a good break!

With less work means more time with my kiddos as well as more photo time with the two as well! The shoemakers kids don't have any shoes and the photographers kids don't have any pictures. Well, I'm not that bad, but I love wanting to take the time to get some good photos of them. Sometimes when you are behind a camera all of the time you just don't want to be once you get home. Anyway, the sun was shining today through the front door so I had the kids run in there so that I could get their pretty smiles on my blog. They may just look like each other huh?

A little bit of Sunshine...

Rosier Fallin Wedding - Jan. 5, 2008

Link to their wedding photos:

I'm so happy I got this shot...I have been wanting to do this at a wedding and we just never got the chance to do it. This is the couple before the wedding, having not seen each other yet but getting to touch...{exhale} it! Quite sweet!

I had to put one of my baby girl in here...her poses are so dramatic

I thought this one was pretty sweet as well, William waiting patiently to escort his soon to be wife up the isle as daddy holds on tightly to his little princess

Nothing like dancin' for a little spendin' money

They had so much snow all over them, by the time they got to hotel I'm sure it was comparable to being at the beach all day

I will post the link to all of the wedding photos here on the blog as well as my website when I am all through with them, say...Wednesday or Thursday this week! Check back!

Lily Sue

Here she is for those of you haven't seen her yet. Cutie huh? Hopefully you will see more photos this coming up week or so when she has her official first photo session, can't wait!

My Guys

I love this picture above, look at my boys follow through...yeah, that ball was coming straight for the camera and hit me, but the photo was worth it.

Landon, acting like he's just been hit by a linebacker.

I love watching Ken play with the kids, what they get from dad is so different from what comes from the Mama, and God knew that when he designed them, gotta love it!
