The Way I View | Blessings

Sunday, December 2, 2012

I know I promised I would update this blog, but I have been super busy these last few months with sessions. I can't complain, I'am honored that so many people trust me to capture their families. Truly I'am blessed, even If I only do this as a part time level, to be able to spend my free time with something I love to do. This month our theme is all about blessings. Even though I'am super swamped, behind on editing, I'am still blessed to be able to be busy. Here are a couple of images from sessions I have had. I have the best clients. I can't really can't call them clients, they more like friends. They believe in me and keep coming back to me, even when I'm still working on getting better and finding my style.


The biggest blessings in my life are my boys. I'am a proud BOYMOM. I know everyone always says this about their kids, but I don't care, my kids are my world. I was the girl that was totally not going to have kids. I didn't want any part of motherhood. I was completely content with my life and I didn't care about what all my friends told me. I was a proud Aunt to 7 nieces and nephews and that's all I needed. Then I got married, and I got the fever, baby fever. Bad. So then a few years later we welcomed our first son. Despite all those sleepless nights, and the baby blues, I LOVED him and I LOVED being a Mom. I was on cloud 9. Never ever, did I think I would be that much in love with this little guy that looked just like his Daddy, but with my dimples. Never ever, did I think I would be the one to say, "once you have kids, you will know what true happiness is". Then 18 months later, we had our second son. I was the Mom that was scared that I would not be able to love another child like I did my first born. Boy was I wrong. It's unconditionally, undeniably love at first sight.


I have to warn you some of these pictures are terrible. These are the ones I don't show to anyone, I keep them for me. I tend to keep "technically wrong" images of my boys. I can't make myself delete these. Especially from this series, where I took the boys out so I can practice with backlighting, I just snapped and captured my boys being themselves.

The Way I View | Dress Up/Halloween

Friday, November 2, 2012

This month our theme for our blog circle is The Way I View Dress Up/Halloween. Halloween is my favorite holiday. I was so ready to take these awesome pictures of my boys in their costumes. Things didn't quite start out like I hoped. I was dealing with two grumpy boys. It was a big crying fit of a mess. I don't normally take pictures of my boys in time out, I promise.  I couldn't help myself this time. It just looked pretty funny seeing Iron Man and Spider Man sitting in time out. They were not happy when they saw my camera either, which explains why they are looking away.

 
So the little shoot I planned for them before we headed to out did not happen. I did manage some pictures with our buddies a while later, once they were in a somewhat better mood. 

A few months ago, I decided to play dress up with my boys. I pulled out some old costumes we sat them in front of a black blanket and let them act silly. Who needs daughter to play dress up when you have these two handsome dudes.





 
 
I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween! Now head on over and check out
 Julie's take on dress up!

The Way I View | Back to School

Monday, October 1, 2012

I'm so excited to be a part of a blog circle through Clickin Moms. This month the theme is The Way I View Back to School. I will admit I was a slacker the last few weeks with my boy starting kinder and his first year of soccer and numerous other demands. I don't think I took very many personal pictures, or for our theme. I do however have Diego's first day of school pics that I have yet to share on this blog. Lets just say the first few weeks of school were very rough for ME. I was an emotional wreck having to drop off my first born at school. Every crazy scenario that could happen popped into my head. I was a mess. Diego on the other hand, loves school. Every day he is eager to get up and go. So now 6 weeks later, that anxiety is no longer at high alert like it was. Please ignore the fact that some of these images are out of focus. It was kind of hard to take a GOOD picture when I was holding back tears and trying not to hyperventilate.

First Day of School




 
 
The moment my heart broke and I had to run out of the class before he cried or saw me cry.
 

Second Day
 
Third Day
 
 
Fourth  Day- which is also the day he came home with a cold :(
 
 
Fifth Day. As you can tell he was over taking pictures every morning.
 
 
Fifth Day at 6 pm. Out cold.

Head on over to see how Kimberly views Back to School!

Back to School

Wednesday, September 19, 2012

The day before school started Diego and I had a little back to school shoot.There was really no planning in my part involved. I just decided a few days before I wanted to have a shoot with a school bus in the background. We borrowed some nerd glasses from my niece and put on some of his school clothes and we were ready to go. Apparently these glasses are what all the cool kids are wearing these days. Initially Diego was hesitant about wearing them. I explained to him it would be a quick shoot as long as he followed my instructions and then he could take them off. I stopped at the parking lot of a local preschool down the street from our house, 15 minutes later more or less we were done! I plan to do this every year and making a book for both my boys to give them one day.

Dylan is Three!

Friday, August 24, 2012

Dear Dylan,


I seriously can't even begin to explain how much I love you! Three years ago you unexpectedly made your grand appearance, you were ready for the world. You have been such a little blessing to our family. These last three years you have been joyous and eventful! You have come a long way from that little 6 pound preemie baby we brought home. I love you, more than words can say.

You are becoming more independent every day. You like to be able to walk on your own without holding my hand or sit in the stroller. You want to buckle your own seat belt and take off  your own shoes. You are finally potty trained! Every passing day I see you becoming my big boy.



You are probably the smartest little dude I know. You have known your alphabet and numbers from an early age. You love to learn, read, explore and use your imagination. You are inquisitive and talkative.




 


Big Brother Diego is your best friend. You look up to him and want to do everything he does. You definitely miss him when he is not home. I love the relationship you guys have.



You finally got your first haircut! It only took us 3 years to do it! You definitely hate having your hair brushed, but you love your hair.


You can be quite a handful. You have your own mind, and you definitely let us know that. You tend to be serious, but the silliness in you always sneaks out. You are the adventurous boy, sometimes even the rebellious one.  You also are a little dramatic and can throw quite a tantrum.

 

You are the sweetest, cutest, cuddliest little love. You love your Mommy and Daddy. You love to snuggle with us and sleep in our bed.

 
You love to watch Scooby Doo, Dora and Diego, Adventure Time, Thomas the Train and lots more.
 


 
 
Your favorite toys are your play kitchen, Nintendo DS, Scooby Doo figurines, trains, Batman toys, Super Mario brothers plush dolls, cars, trains.
You pretty much love all your toys.
 
 

I'm definitely looking forward to all the new changes, new things you will learn, and watching you turn into a big boy this next year.

  I  love you little man, to the moon and back!
