Getting excited!

What for you ask? Well, in approximately 48 short hours I will be arriving in Dallas for four fun filled days of shopping, eating and pampering. I am lucky enough to be meeting up with eight of my dearest and closest girlfriends. I'm thinking we might have a *little* fun, but I can't be sure....

So, beginning this evening I will be unavailable to reach via phone or e-mail until I return on Wednesday, June 4th.

If you are inquiring about a session, please do send an e-mail or leave me a voicemail as they are booked on a first come, first serve basis. I am completely booked for June and will now be opening availability for July, August & September. If you are interested in getting a session done this year, now is the time! There will be NO sessions in October, November or December of this year as we welcome our second little bundle into the family and prepare for and adjust to the transition. Please e-mail me at or call at 847.970.8055.

So, until next Wednesday when I return sunburned, exhausted and extremely sad to leave my friends behind, I bid you farewell! Enjoy your weekend!

It's been six long months since I had seen this little cutie, but let me tell you - he smiled at me like I was just over for lunch the day before!!

This was his last session as a only child - next time I see him I will be photographing the latest addition to the family. Here are some favorites from the session.

Can't wait to meet the new little bundle in a month or two!! No doubt baby #2 will be as cute as the first!

Happy Mothers Day!

I know I'm a day late and a dollar short, but this last weekend (and even the last week!) has just gotten away from me! I hope all my fabulous moms enjoyed their day and got treated like the queens we know we are, right??

We enjoyed a relaxing day - I got to sleep in (yay!), then met for brunch and headed out for some girl shopping later in the day. No cooking. No cleaning. No work. My kind of day!

Earlier in the week, I had the pleasure of going to Blake's preschool for a Mothers Day party they were having. Turns out, the kids had made something for us as a gift and had answered a questionnaire of sorts about us. I thought it was so sweet and had to share this with you - give you a little glimpse into the mind of a 3 year old:

1. What does she do?
She works upstairs in her office. She snuggles with me and cleans clothes.

2. How old is she?

3. What is her favorite color?

4. What is her favorite food?
Cinnamon Rolls

5. What is her favorite movie?
Gilmore Girls

6. Mommy is funny when....
she laughs and runs after me.

7. Where does she like to take you for fun?
To the furniture store (in my defense, we just went last week and this furniture store has a kids play area like McDonalds!)

8. Mommy always says....
Thank you!

9. What special message would you like to tell her on Mothers Day?
Happy Mothers Day. I love you.

I was shocked at how many of these he knew (well, all except my age!!!!) and of course I loved how he answered them.... Talk about melting a mom's heart!

And, finally...I got pampered a little more this year than usual. Mostly cause I have the best husband in the world (and I've trained him well!)...but also cause.....

Aren't these weird alien pictures always the best??? Yep, we are expecting baby #2...due November 1st. For those that have been wondering where the heck I've been, the answer is I've been sorta busy growing a person. :) Not sure if it's the whole running after a 3 year old thing that's the difference, but this pregnancy has knocked me off my feet! But, I'm feeling much better now and looking forward to getting back in the swing of things. So, for those that have sessions scheduled in the upcoming weeks and months, don't be surprised if I'm a bit "rounder" than the last time you saw me. :)

Hope you enjoyed your wonderful day!!
