The Blue Wedding…

07.30.08 Weddings

This past weekend i helped Jen at a wedding that she was shooting. The bride seriously likes blue, she has blue streaks in her hair, her bridesmaids wore blue, she had a blue engagement ring….





Jen at work…


All the groomsmen wore glasses except one, i tried to recreate a neat shot i saw online with glasses.

Here is some fun Ring shots…




Happy Birthday to my girl!

07.30.08 My Kids

Today Gabby turned 4 and i can tell you it was both sad, that she is growing up, but happy since i definitely am ready to put the “terrific threes” behind us… We had a birthday party this afternoon for her girlfriends and a few boys. Gabby literally didn’t sit down ALL DAY LONG… she was like the energizer bunny.

The theme was a “Alice in Wonderland” tea party. Jen helped out and was my photographer and Ashlee was my official face painter…!!! Thank you so much to both of you!!!!

You can check out some shots on Jen’s blog here…

I seriously love this picture, here is Alyssa snuggling up with me, she hasnt been feeling good for 2 days and has been running a pretty high fever, so needless to say she wasnt in the mood to party…

Family

07.28.08 Families, Kids, Maternity

Yesterday afternoon i met up with a family from Virginia, he is in the Navy and was up visiting a friend of mine, Tiffany. When i offered to meet them either at Messiah College or Ashcombes, they picked Messiah since they both went to school there and that is where they fell in love and got engaged. Fast forward to present time, they now have a 4 yr old, 2 yr old and a baby boy on the way. The kids were so good! What a sweet couple!

Meet Douglas:

& Abbey

The whole family…

Happy Birthday Butch

07.26.08 My Kids

Today was Butch’s birthday! We took them down to sing in their pajamas since they go to bed at 6:30… Alyssa and Gabby love him so much, Alyssa said her first “sentence” when we were leaving their house… “Bye Bye PopPop Mimi…”

And here is who i picked up from Summer Fun, a kitty named Gabby… She loves going down to the Y at well to hang with Hillary & Kendall and Michelle. It was the carnival day today so it was extra fun for her, it is not a whole lot of fun for me once she comes home since she is overtired and wont take a nap… oh how i miss naps!

Tuesday

Tanner and Donna came out on Tuesday, here are a few pics i took of them…





Saturday

07.19.08 My Kids

Friday night my mom watched my girls, and for some reason they both slept in on Sat… I was drinking my coffee at 730 and realized that Gabby wasn’t up yet (which is not normal) and it reminded me that she said that she wanted me to take a picture of her sleeping… she loves when i take pics of alyssa sleeping but Gabby doesn’t nap anymore and is usually up before me… So i grabbed my camera and flash and went up and slowly crept in… doesnt she look sweet with her bumper?

Chloe of course followed me in and hopped right on the bed with her…

Then tonight before bed, i wanted to take some pictures of them… Alyssa kept walking around saying “CHEESE”…. love her!




Then Gabby wanted to take a picture of me and Alyssa… i sort of liked this one… in a wierd sort of way.

..

Pop-Pop…

07.18.08 My Kids

Yesterday my pop-pop (my grandpa) came out to visit from Philly… i love seeing him cause it reminds me of when i was a child… I said i wanted to take some pics of him since i really don’t have any… I just got a few…


My mom took this one…

Gabby wouldn’t smile, so i told my mom to tickle her…

Reese’s Birthday

07.14.08 My Kids

Last night we went over Reese’s birthday, she is the funniest lil girl. She couldnt wait till she could open presents and once the rain stopped for a bit, we went outside and the girls tried out the slip & slide… Gabby loved it, she didn’t totally get the concept, but loved just crawling along getting wet trying to slide.

Heres a pic of Reese rocking it out on the slip & slide… she is such a comedian.

Finn trying it out…

Cheese!

and here is one i ripped off of Jen’s blog of Gabby… love this shot.. all mine she was moving too fast or making a weird face…
