The party to end all parties

  • by

How could you beat the rock n’ roll birthday party?  What will you do next year?
The kids dressed up, played rock band for awhile, had a watermelon spitting contest (which I won, hehe), were handed  golden cd awards, and even had a cd cover photoshoot a la Stacie.  Here are the results.
I’ll try to name who I can:

Here’s the birthday boy; AKA Tommy Lee

Guns N’ Roses?  No… Lars from Metalica


Singer from “Green Day”

Hannah Montana

The girl from “Camp Rock”

Dude from “Foo Fighters”

Gene Simmons

All the way from Argentina

Our neighbors have had family in town for awhile and wanted to mark the occasion with some portraits. I am so happy they chose me to photograph them. We love living so close to such a wonderful family and can’t wait to have our girls go to school together.

Let’s go someplace different…

So we did. Every time I see a building with a cool texture or color or pattern I want to photograph at that spot. Saturday this little fam was game for anything. We headed to two of the places I keep seeing. Can’t wait to go to the other spots on my list.
This little guy was so happy and friendly. When I asked for a mean face he got very confused. He’s such a nice kid he hasn’t ever used a mean face.

Headband Redux

  • by

So India and I saw the cutest headbands in J.Crew.  Of course they were $15 and I couldn’t see spending that much on a headband.  Go figure.  I figured Indi and I could make them ourselves.  So we did… I did.  We took the flowers apart together but I had to sew the flowers to the band.

We’re a Happy Family

me, mom, and daddy… sorry The Ramones just swim around in my brain sometimes. If you head over to their site you can rock to some tunes. Although only the first line of this song applies to this happy family.
They had a great day. Adoption papers signed and day in court over and done. After all that, it was time for a little hike and some photos to help remember this day. The only thing that could put a damper was the 93 degree weather. Everyone toughed it out and we got a bit of cloud cover at just the right times. We were blessed, in more ways than one.
