I am behind… I’ve been neglecting my blog. I wanted to update first with my little boy’s first birthday. He had a great celebration with family and absolutely LOVED his cake. I had requested his daddy get a cake with white frosting and that’s what I got… and pink polka dots too (“… well that was the only cake they had with white frosting…”). Ha! But he dove right in and his expressions were priceless. He even tried to stand on it but the cake held up pretty well! I can’t believe he is one and I am now officially the mother of 2 toddlers who are only 15 months apart!
We have been here just a little over 3 weeks and are settling in well. We all love it here. During the week the kids and I spend tons of time outside in the yard, going for walks and playing at the parks. I joined a mommy group but am struggling to get the kids’ schedules together… hopefully soon. On the weekends we go out as a family to explore as well as spend time with wonderful relatives and friends. Yesterday we ventured down to the Potomac River because my little girl LOVES “wah-dee.” I’m pretty sure that with my camera I look like a tourist around here rather than a photographer. In fact, I had someone kindly ask me if I wanted him to take a pic of me with my daughter. Gosh no, I don’t get in front of the camera, LOL! Anyhoo, I never tire of taking pics of my kids so here are a couple of my daughter. This week is my little boy’s first birthday so I will be doing some of him next
I hope everyone is well!
How cute is this little monkey clip in Avery’s hair? She loved modeling this one. I told her it matched her brother’s hat and she kept saying “EEE EEE EEE” which is of course the sound a monkey makes. When I was processing the pics she kept looking at them and pointing to her hair. So stinking cute. You can get one and many other adorable clips and headbands from Appleseed from Denise Thank you Denise!
It was a big weekend for my studio I ordered a 16×24 canvas gallery wrap with my logo to hang and it’s gorgeous! Backdrops I ordered also arrived. FUN times and I could not be happier with how it’s all coming together! I hope everyone who celebrates Easter enjoyed the holiday. We had a wonderful time celebrating all weekend long with family. Thanks Billy, Susannah, Nathan and Dylan!
WOW. I am amazed by the beautiful scent and beauty from all of the cherry trees here! They are in full bloom for only a couple more days so I made sure to get out this morning to take a couple pics. We have 2 in our yard and my studio looks out to the one in this pic. We went for a walk in our neighborhood last night and I was blown away at all the character, charm and beauty this area has to offer. Spring has sprung and I am so excited… there are so many incredible outdoor locations that will make for beautiful portrait settings. This place is a photographer’s dream!
