A series of unfortunate events...

Ok, so I'm not talking about the children's book or movie but rather the past week of my life. I really have so much to blog about but am sitting in my car downtown to have wifi access and do not have much time to expand. What I will say is that we had a wonderful trip to Honduras and I have lots of pictures to post, which I promise to share as soon as life has calmed down. We returned home last Saturday evening and took a few days to recoup from jetlag. Now some of you may or may not know that my husband recently received his bachelors degree and is currently applying for dental school. Through our college journey we have been apartment managers in addition to starting my photography business. This Thursday afternoon there was a fire in our building that destroyed two homes. Fortunately nobody was hurt and our apartment escaped untouched. Unfortunately we now have a great deal going on in our lives as a result of this recent event and have been on the phone for what seems like three days straight. For those of you involved in The Dapper Baby modeling I wanted to let you know that we will begin shooting the second week of August. I also want you all to know that if you are trying to contact me I may not be able to reply as quickly as usual as I do not have internet access and may not have it up and running for another month (some cables were destroyed in the fire and they were damaged so badly that we will have to wait for the contractor to start the reconstruction). I will have to head downtown or go to a library for internet access and will do my best to go as regularly as my schedule permits. That will have to sum it up for now, I will try to post this coming week and fill you in on more details and hope to share some great images from our trip. In the meanwhile please keep the families mostly affected by this tragedy in your prayers, neither apartment had renters insurance and they both lost so much.

Two weddings, two graduations, and a reunion...

if you were wondering what I've been up to;) We have been out of town three weekends in a row traveling 3+ hours one way, each time. It's good to be home, it seems like I have been packing and unpacking nonstop for the past three weeks, um, probably because I have! I did a newborn session a few weeks ago, Miss "A" was just a doll, such a beautiful little thing. I have been behind on my blogging since I have been gone so much so I thought I would catch up a bit, I still have more but for now this will have to tide you over;)

I thought I'd throw a bit of a vintage spin on the second one, I love a little vintage:)

You may recognize this little sweetie, she is on my website as a newborn wrapped in a hawaiian blanket, LOVE her big brown eyes! This was one of my favorites from the session.

And, of course, I have to share an outtake...she's still soooo cute!

Object of my affections...

Oh, how I long to hold you, to touch you once again, to hear your soothing sounds. I always seemed to know how to push your buttons, perhaps that's why you're gone. Will I find you someday, used and worn? But alas, I have traded you in for a newer model...

If you are trying to contact me, I have lost my cell phone, you can email me at until I receive my newer model;)

Childhood and gas...

Ok so the title is likely not what you would think;) With the current state on INSANE gas prices I have decided to announce the "surprise" for the bonus gift a little early. For those of you who didn't get the memo, Bella's Image and The Dapper Baby are looking for child models (read the post below) we also thought it would be fun to offer a little incentive for getting the word out, here's the 411 on how to snag the prize:

  1. If you have a blog, post a little somethin', somethin' about this contest and create a link to our blog (
  2. A statcounter will keep track of the referring blog
  3. The blog that refers the most hits to this site will receive a $50 gas card (now who doesn't need that right about now?) and some of the cutest stationery you've ever laid your eyes on from one of my favorite places, Paper Source.

As you can see it's as easy as 1, 2, 3 (ok, I'm a nerd)
