Miracle Baby

This is my friend of almost 8 years. She and her husband have been through so much trying to get pregnant with their second child. But, today she is doing well and her belly keeps growing a little miracle I can’t wait to meet. Love you Lacey!

Sure do miss that belly of yours and look forward to our trip out to Cheyenne!

cherry apron

I had a special request to make a vintage apron. If anyone remembers, awhile ago I had an order for 9 of these.

I asked my friend what her kitchen looked like (being the OCD human being I am, everything has to match in my mind). She says, “Coca-Cola red.” Well, when I think red and vintage, I think cherries. I looked and looked for real cherry vintage fabric, but couldn’t find any…not even online.

So, this is what I came up with.

This shows the inside of the apron. I used a sheer fabric with a floral pattern that lets the cherries come through and embelished the pocket with a big red button. I like it. It is really fun and cheery…I might make one for me.

I hope you like it Beth!

happy birthday Kristi!

Is it already Friday? This week has gone by in a haze (thanks to the overdose of pollen and my suddenly active allergies).

My family had a great opportunity to meet some WONDERFUL people. I am so glad we made it to your birthday party Kristi. We had so much fun and enjoyed everybody there.

After Kristi blew out her candles she sat on the floor, holding the cake, and let all the kids dip their little fingers in the frosting. This is just an example of how relaxed, fun, and HAPPY she is all the time. I loved it. I would have screamed if little fingers were all over my cake. I love that about you, Kristi. You are amazing!

and so is your family.

Frank, it was a joy to finally meet you. Drew and I look forward to hanging out again in the future.

The kids loved the pool. They loved the play area. They LOVE your family.

Happy HAPPY birthday Kristi!

Belly Time

Drew’s sister is pregnant with her second child.

It’s a boy this time!

She is such a beautiful pregnant person…has that glow…great skin…and I can’t believe he will be here in just a few months. I think Greta is ready for him to be here too.

Here are some of the pictures I took for you Maggimoo. I hope you all like them!

Thank you Maggie and John for letting me take some photos of you and that beautiful belly. We can’t wait to meet your new little man!

my Wichita trip

I am so glad I had a chance to make a trip back to Wichita.

It had been too long since we had seen everybody and, as usual, my nephews have grown so much since our last trip.

Kieran turned NINE the tuesday before we showed up, but we made it in time for the birthday party/slumber party. Todd, you are so brave to take on all those boys (and our little girl) for over 12 hours!

They had a blast.

We split our trip up between different families. I adopted Charlie and Edith as my grandparents a long time ago. They consider my kids their grand kids and I LOVE it. The weather was yucky almost the entire time we were there except Tuesday and we went fishing on the pond behind Charlie and Edith’s house.

Connor and Kenney caught sun perch and the rest of us only had nibbles. It was still fun, but I think Jessie was disappointed she didn’t get anything.

This was the catch of the DAY! Connor was so proud, but didn’t understand why he didn’t catch the giant cat fish again. I think it was still too cold for the fish to want to bite.

Every year we see Charlie and Edith, I take a picture right before we leave. I love them so much and I hate the fact I can’t tell them when I will be back.

We stayed with Charlie Jr. and Suzie a couple of nights too. It was nice to hang out and relax. I really enjoyed the time we had to get to know Suzie. She is such a wonderful person with a kind heart…and she loves my kids!

She let them swim in their jet tub. The kids soaked up every minute of it. They didn’t want to get out.

The weather was so horrible almost the entire time we were there and clouds and rain ruined our chance to go up in Charlie’s airplane. Maybe next time.

Oh, Jester! He is a German Shorthair. He is so rowdy. He is spastic! He is a puppy the same size as my kids. Connor was terrified of him because he would run after them and jump and tug. Jester, on the other hand, thought the kids were a blast. Connor would not come up the stairs unless he knew Jester was outside. By the time we were leaving and after I tried to tell the kids to stay calm and Jester would stay calm too, Connor finally accepted the fact Jester was not out to get him.

Before we left I took a couple of pictures of Charlie and Suzie. I hope you both like them. When we see you again, I will get more and hopefully the weather will be beautiful so we can go outside.

We are looking forward to our next trip out there. I am hoping some time this summer.

It was so good to be with family.

It was even better since Drew was with us this time.

and maybe God will give us better weather.

more pictures!

I did my last photo shoot for Easter. Baby Keigan has grown so much in the last year and I have had the pleasure of doing his pictures once again. He wasn’t so excited about the baby chicken. In fact, he was scared out of his mind! But despite the tears in the beginning brought on by my little ball of fluff, we captured his funny faces and still had a great time. Thank you Shelley for letting me take his photos once again!

Then my friend B.J. came to visit from KS and she asked me to take some pictures of her and her girls. Of course I was happy to photograph them since I have had the pleasure of watching these beautiful girls grow into young women. It was so cold and rainy limiting what we were able to do, but all of you were CHAMPS and I appreciate your patience getting through the shoot. I am so glad you all liked them! I can’t wait to do more.

Thank you everyone for the opportunities to photograph you and your families. I have had the best time with it!

Easter pictures of Lexi and Logan

I have finally finished editing the Easter pictures I have done so far. There were so many good ones to choose from with these sittings. Lexi and Logan are cousins and cute as can be…and the fact that Jessie and Connor LOVE them so much makes it even more fun.

Ni Ni, Dianne and Angie, I know you have been patiently waiting to see some peeks, so here they are!

Thank you so much for letting me photograph the kids. I really enjoyed it and I hope you all love the pictures!
