This little peanut is only a few days old and surprised everyone by being 2 weeks early! He was definitely happiest in mommy’s arms – we didn’t get to do a lot of the ‘posing’ shots but he was adorable nonetheless! Congratulations, E & E, on your new baby boy!! I hope you enjoy your sneak peek – more to come soon and Welcome to the World, Baby ‘O’!

EE: These are so great. E was very pleased and he is hard to please;) I can't wait to see the rest.

Aunt Jen: Such a sweetheart. I love these pics! Can't believe he has already had his first official photo shoot.

Popi: I love them all but the one with Oliver all curled up in Erin's arms is so precious.

Auntie Joy: Look at his gorgeous, scrawny little bum! What a love bug.

Rossellina: I think that we must be around the same age, besacue all four of those apply to me, except maybe the one about reading teen vogue. I tend to pick up the regular vogue often enough (but I must admit to reading seventeen well past my seventeenth birthday) however, i love those pages you picked. I like the fact that if it is grunge, it is a more bohemian version of it. no irritating stonewashed denim this time. yay!

Gabyzinho: I do love the manner in which you have fremad this issue plus it does indeed provide us some fodder for consideration. Nonetheless, through just what I have seen, I simply hope when the actual commentary pile on that folks keep on point and not start on a soap box involving some other news of the day. Still, thank you for this excellent point and while I do not necessarily agree with this in totality, I value your viewpoint.

Welcome Home!

I had the wonderful privilage of photographing this young serviceman’s homecoming from his tour in Iraq. I am so proud of our servicemen and so soooo very thankful for the sacrifices they make to keep us all safe. I teared up as he was welcomed by his beautiful family. I’m sure there wasn’t a dry eye in the entire place!

And who could resist this little guy? He is the Godson of our returning soldier and captivated everyone who saw him!

Meet Chloe!

May 27, 2009

I did not want a dog. Any kind of dog. I like being in a pet free zone. No pet hair, no accidents, no chewed up shoes…

Yet, we have Chloe. She followed my husband’s car home one day after several near death experiences on the main road behind our house. I felt sorry for her – she was such a sweet, gentle dog – I figured a family would seriously be missing her. She had quite the tic infestation so we picked off what we could and gave her a bath. That didn’t exactly do it with the whole tic thing (after several blood sucking creatures were found on our bed – um yeah we let her sleep on our bed), so we bought stuff at the vet to get rid of them. Remember, I didn’t want a dog.

Well, we put out fliers, an ad on Craigslist – nothing. The kids named her Chloe. She’s potty trained and does well on a leash and only chews a little (no shoes, thank goodness). I am still hesitant to call her our own – but we love her. I think she was an answer to the boys’ prayers who have been begging God for a dog. I must say, even though I have not wanted any pets, I’m kinda sweet on her.

So…. meet Chloe… who found her some people to call her own.
