New Toy

Watch out, Sharon got a Wacom Tablet and Corel Painter :P I dont have time these days to REALLY paint anything, so I will take this instead. I am still getting used to the tablet. Some things I find easier to do with it, and some things I am just way more comfortable doing with a mouse. Just like anything it will take some time I guess.

Okay, so I have fallen behind in blogging again, I know. I have been on and off again sick all this month, and if not me, one of the boys. Frankly, I am sick of being sick,lol. I think I could deal with the yuck feeling if I just wasnt sooooooo tiiiirrrreeedddddd. I feel like I could sleep for days. Everytime I sit to edit, my eyes start crossing,LOL. I REALLY need some warm weather.

So, I have lots to update and I promise to get to it soon. Lots of my wee ones turning one years old! I went to the WOW Center Creative Workshop again...some AMAZING things happened during that weekend. I have oodles of cute kiddos who are participating in the National Charity Model Search. As I get the images submitted I will post a link so everyone can vote for their favs :) In the meantime, enjoy a "Painted" image of a senior from last week :D

Sassy Miss "B"

"B" and I share a love of polka dots(and cool shoes :D) and can she seriously get any more adorable in her polka dots? Awesomeness runs in this family, as B's older brother is one of my 2009 grooms (remember the hot couple ryan and kory that I posted their e-session in the fall?? )
Thanks for making me smile B :) Keep being you!

What's in a name?

This cute little guy has a great name, and his personality seems to fit perfectly with his name because he was just a joy to hang out with. He showed me his dancin feet, and his beautiful toofless grin quite a number of times. And ma and pop think the world of him, I can tell :D

I have been looking forward to this shoot in, well a long time. Ava is a girl of many faces, and although only 3, would fool you with her 13 yr old opinions,lol. She was a little shy to come and see me today, considering the last time I saw her her words....was chased by a crazy chicken that tried to eat her finger,lol. (we were at carriage hill...beware of the crazy chickens) But by the time we were done, she asked her mommy if they could "stay for a little week" ;)

Ava, you can come and see me anytime :D

The tiny little man

is almost 1! This is a bittersweet time of year for me. All the babies I've watched grow up from tiny little things last year are now all turning a year old. Grady and I have had a love hate relationship, I love him to pieces, but he could take or leave me,lol. Actually I think he much prefers being close to mommy, so we had his one year session at home, just like we did his newborn session. Can you believe not even a year ago, he laid on that same table in a little basket *sigh* Happy Birthday Monkey!
