Happy Feet

Will's idea...creative and sweet. :)

Sunday, January 27, 2008

i am will...will i am

Will had quite the night...

...picked out a scratch off ticket for Adam at Kmart and won him $10 (way to go bud!
) some SWEET Cartoon Network Valentines for the Big Day (not only Valentines day, but even more fun...Will's 8th Birthday!!) some T-bell (tacos, no lettuce) some photos taken
...and was the only brother to go to bed without needing to be yelled at 84 times for talking. (High five brother-man!)

Here's his sweet face...

More of him tomorrow...I have GOT to hit the hay. (I know...I know. What'd the hay ever do to me?!?! ;) hehe! Good night!)

Normally the boys are with their dad on the weekends, but he's gone today, so they're here with us. That gave me a rare opportunity to take them outside in the DAYLIGHT! (During the week, by the time I get them home after work, it is too dark for photos.)

It's not THAT cold today, but still too cold for me! LOL! The boys had fun shoveling AND bike riding though!!

Kids are CRAZY. They look mellow here, but trust me...things aren't so calm now. The boys built a fort in their room and are throwing "bombs" (aka: balls) back and forth across the room SCREAMING...OMG, screaming. ((**covers ears with hands**))

WAY TOO LOUD for quarter to 8 at night. LOL! Whatcha gonna do, right?

Anyway...Will was NOT down for pictures, but I had to get a snap of the three of them playing. I told him he didn't have a choice and was getting REAL photos on Sunday. :)

And Mikey had to show off his second favorite thing (after gloves of course).


Lat'ro Like Whoa.

This, That, and the Other Thing

So much to do, so little time...story of my life lately! I've got 3 design projects (not to mention a couple photo orders) I'm working on, plus family stuff, day-job stuff, selling some stuff, on and on and on. The To-Do list is never ending it seems.

News for those who have inquired and are anxiously waiting...Will is coming over tomorrow night and this weekend, so there should be new pics of his sweet little face up soon! :) Keep checking back!

Now for today's pics. I have the pictures of the boys I promised from the other night, plus a couple snapshots to share.

My guys playing with their favorite buddy...(taken the other night)

Luc is happily on the mend after a bout with PINK EYE so he'll hopefully be game for some new photos soon, himself! :)

Another hobby at our house...we LOVE our Guitar Hero...

And for those of you who REALLY know me...there's back story to this I'm not going to get into here, but I can honestly say I wouldn't have thought this photo would/could ever happen. Welcome back Dylan...we missed ya!

And so we conclude our Wednesday night edition of "This, That, and the Other Thing" Tune in next week for more viewing pleasure! :)

Night kids!

Mikey wants to box...he loves to put on Becky's boxing gloves and punch someone in the face...hahaha! OBVIOUSLY we have to watch him and make sure that does NOT happen or his brother is going to have a sore nose! Yesterday, however, he donned the snowmobile gloves and settled for some "sparring" with Adam. (New pics of the boys with Adam tomorrow!)

...Goose on the Loose...

Mikey is big into gloves...knit gloves, mittens, snowmobile gloves, dirtbike gloves...he doesn't even care. As long as we'll let him wear them ALL DAY LONG, he loves 'em! Today's he's taken a liking to some big snowmobile-type gloves someone left at our house. He's had them on all night. (Don't mind the shopping bags in the background, or his open zipper on his pants, OR the cuts on his nose and cheek...rough weekend at his dad's...grrr!)

And after a very slight amount of bribery (I promised he could wear his gloves to bed...LOL!) I got him to take the gloves off for just a minute. :) Apparently I'm VERY funny because he was laughing VERY hard. (And as you can see, I couldn't resist getting rid of the scratches on his sweet little face!)

Luc is not feeling the greatest today and has been lounging on the couch most of the night. I asked nicely but he was not game for having his picture taken. I have pictures to post tomorrow however of him and Mikey playing with Adam. Stay tuned!

Not TOTALLY set in stone on this. Couple small changes to be made...but I'm getting excited, so I thought I'd share anyway!

Crabby Patties

For getting to stay home with their best buddy Adam today, I sure came home to TWO grumpy boys. These photos took A LOT of me! LOL! Lots of whining and even some tears before I talked them into being sweet for JUST ONE SECOND! Then it was back to whining and tears. (You don't even want to see those pictures...blah! LOL!)

Here are my little men...sick of being stuck inside, much like their momma...

Luc has a tendancy to want to make faces (when he's not crying and telling me no...haha! TYPICAL PHOTOGRAPHER'S CHILD!) Not much luck getting a natural face out of him today. I think this was in between "faces".

Will and Luc both look so much like their dads...but not my Mikey! Mikey looks SO much like my side of the familia...LOVE it! :)

Bad night, creativity wise. Completely unhappy with every photo I took this evening. I worked on a handful of the boys pics and just couldn't stand the idea of showing anyone. is a DIFFERENT kind of photo from today. HEY! I never said it would ALWAYS be kid pics! :)

A common activity at our house: Madden.


These are NOT my daily "365" photos, but I wanted to post them while I had a chance.

This is my boyfriend Adam. He is a FANTASTIC MX (dirtbike) racer, the funniest person I know, smart and musical, sweet and loving. He is wonderful to my boys and they absolutely adore and idolize him. He has a sweet little girl whom I love like she were my own.

He has reminded me to slow down, take a deep breath and enjoy life once in not stress so much and just let things work themselves out sometimes. He is my very best friend and I love him SO very much.

Adam often indulges me creatively letting me take photos of him...I find him quite photogenic (and of course, completely good-looking!)

My Adam...

I will post my daily photos later this evening and POSSIBLY some design work...we shall see!


Tuesday, January 15, 2008


I know...I NEW picture today. Maybe this 365 business was a bad idea, because I sure feel like an ass when I don't post a pic. :(

I WILL post a NEW pic tomorrow...I PROMISE. Cross my heart even! ;)

I am going to post some senior photos, however. Just some portfolio stuff for your viewing pleasure.

Introducing, Cody...Senior 2008
(Don't mind the numbers underneath...these are from his proof gallery.)

Until tomorrow, goodnight.

The Bros

My buddies aren't home from their dad's yet but I MUST post a picture today, so I will post some I took a couple days ago. I KNOW...I KNOW...cheating already. :P

I was having serious issues with my SB-800 speedlight here...I don't know if the batteries were dying or I'm just an idiot or what, but here goes nothing...

Mike. After every photo he'd bust out a big smile and go "I did it???" :)

Luc (Technically imperfect or not, I love this picture).

"The Bros" as we call them around here.

Now I need new pics of Will and I'm GOLDEN! :)

"Project 365"

I'm out of practice. I can FEEL it when I struggle to think creatively, and I can SEE it when I load the photos I take into the computer and completely disgust myself. My lighting needs work, my post processing needs work, my EVERYTHING needs work.

So, I'm going to TRY (no promises here) to post at least ONE photo (NEW photo, mind you) every single day. Even if I don't have one I love...I'm gonna post one. I've GOT to make this work, and the only way I'm gonna do it is PRACTICE. Practice might not make perfect, but it makes a hell of a lot better than where I feel like I'm at... goes. Day 1. My kids (or in this case, Adam's kid) are WAY more difficult to photograph than someone else's kids. They've heard the spiel before and they're not having it. They don't want to pose, they don't want to smile, they don't want to just play and pretend I'm not there. They see the camera and it's INSTANT non-cooperative mode.

Kenz wanted a photoshoot this morning...til we started doing it. Then she was fully UNINTERESTED. LOL! Figures! She definitely WANTS to "pose" (which I often don't want) and say "CHEESE" (which I DEFINITELY don't want). After some negotiating, I got a couple shots outta the deal.

Here's ONE.

And TWO.

To Blog or Not to Blog...

I'm doing it...I'm jumping on the blog bandwagon. I am here to document my life...the struggle to stay sane while I deal with my day job while trying to restart a photography business in a new town. The JOY of raising FOUR a younger sister. (Plus 8 gerbils...*gulp*) Love it or leave it...this is my day-to-day. I'm here. I'm doing it.
