Bridal Shower

06.29.08 Weddings

Yesterday afternoon Gabby and I were invited to take pictures at a bridal shower, for Ashlee’s cousin who is getting married in August…

Jolene posing it up for me…

The happy couple…

Some details…

The Bridesmaids…

Donna & her girls…

The Bride to be trying to cool off in a Marilyn Monroe pose.

Just for fun!

Gabby hamming it up for me… she did so good, staying quiet and being “invisible” i told her that if she came she had to be almost invisible… she did as good as she could… but when we were driving back Gabby was so upset, because there wasnt any “shower” there ๐Ÿ™‚

Misc. Tuesday!

06.24.08 My Kids

So i read this guys blog from Cali that is a photographer and he always has Misc. Monday, so here is my first edition of Misc. Tuesday for you…

I just read about this neat site called The something store… here is what is intriguing about it, you pay $10 and in a week or so you get “something” in the mail… like some random thing… ha ha, isnt that hilarious… you know that person is so laughing his way to the bank… i so want to try it and see what my something will be….

Secondly, I took Gabby to Vacation Bible School where my one friend is teaching, and there was this cute BMW pulling in with a mom and a daughter driving it… heres the catch, did your mom ever do anything to super embarrass you, how about your mom taking a HUGE neon green sign and putting on it the side of your car that says, Student Driver…. I would have died if my mom made me do that when i had my permit… it cracked me up!

Then my bestest girlfriend Sara just sent me this email… it made me literally laugh out loud!Its about her ex-boyfriends…
Matt Linnane is getting married in November. I proclaim this year to be โ€œThe Year the EX gets hitchedโ€ Two boyfriends married. The divorce rate is hovering right around 50%….you do the math. One ainโ€™t gonna last!

Lastly, we are painting the house which means that soon there will be no blue barn door to take pictures in front of… so as a last tribute to the beautiful blue door… let me know if you want to come out and have your pic taken in front of it before it is gone… if you know my FIL maybe try and convince him to let me keep one blue door unpainted ๐Ÿ™‚ …

Here are 2 pics from last night when i took the girls out for Italian ice…

Belly

06.14.08 Families, Maternity

Today i finally got together with Becky’s sister. I asked her months ago if she would want to do belly shots, and surprisingly to Becky and I, she agreed. They live an hour away so we got together on a day that she was down visiting. Her daughter, Caroline is such a doll, Gabby loves to give her kisses. If she even walks in the room, Gabby feels the need to love her. Caroline wasn’t too into me or my camera, but i think i got a few cute ones! Becky even offered to watch Gabby while i took pics, which was great cause since Becky is super mommy, Gabby made a Fathers Day card while she was there. Anyways, Sarah, the mommy to be is so hip! I gave her a few ideas of outfits and i was pleasantly surprised that she listened to me ๐Ÿ™‚

Here are a few of my favorites

Messin Around

06.13.08 Kids

Tiffany came over and let her lil Josiah sleep on my bed while our kids drove each other crazy… ๐Ÿ™‚ Or to be honest, Gabby drove her kids crazy. Chloe must have wanted to spend time with the baby cause as soon as we left the house, she busted in my room and was trying to sleep with the baby on my bed, Poor Tiff almost had a heart-attack when she saw our big dog sleeping with her tiny baby….
