I know this weekend means BBQ’s, picnics and water fun for a lot of people, but for some of us, it means to really thank the men and women of past and present of their service in the military.

I grew up as a military brat and now I am a sister of a service man and a wife of a veteran and I am so thankful that I have these people in my life who want to continue to do what they can for our American Freedom.

Since being married to my hubby, I have watched him for 10 years now, walk up to anyone he sees that is a veteran or currently serving our military, shakes their hand and says “thank you”. I have heard stories from hubby’s dad of how he was treated after coming home from serving and how mean people were to him. We need to support and love those that give a piece to America. Walk up to them and just say “thank you”- I promise it will mean a lot to them!

Take a moment and just reflect on this memorial weekend.

There comes a time in life where doors open and close and things get so crazy and you wonder what the heck is going on. Life can be confusing and a million questions can be asked to God “what is my purpose? What is the plan? What the hell is happening?”

Between a mixture of personal life and business life, I have decided to take a sabbatical for some time to get connected closer to my family. I will keep active on my blog and on facebook in little ways. Starting tomorrow, I will officially be on my sabbatical and fully accepting this new journey as my family and I get connected with God and each other.

I thank you all here in Colorado for all the love and support.

In your best Elvis voice, say, “Baby Chunkin’ love”… did you do it??

I don’t have a voice as dreamy as Elvis and I sure as heck don’t have the moves as good as Elvis, but I can not help but belt out an Elvis voice for some reason when I look at this gorgeous baby!

I had recently completed a recent session of that adorable red head baby (LOOK HERE) and I noticed on her momma’s facebook page that that sweet blue eyed babe was sitting with other babies her age. My eye totally zoomed on on her friend and her sweet baby rolls! – ok now say that in a southern voice! Oh I had to get my hands on this baby- so I did what any other baby crazed photographer would do… I facebook stalked the momma and begged for her to come see me so I could get some photo time with her little one. Thankfully- she agreed and didn’t call the cops on me! Seriously, you can totally be my lifetime friend with either food or babies or pay me with food or baby time.

Total off subject but the food comment reminded me of the movie Multiplicity

“I like pizza, steve”multiplicity_6

ok… so focusing back at the subject. I really did have so much fun during this session. Mom was AMAZING and so sweet and even baby K’s sister came along to help and be a part of the day. I really do love babies- every stage of them and being able to capture details of them… well… in a way it makes me speechless…. and in her case, I want to just keep squeezing that baby chunkin’ love.

Babies – of all ages are SO MUCH FUN! For this special session, baby “J” is a baby on the move but all in a fun – good way. So playful and so much fun. I melted at his smile with his strawberry hair and blue eyes – I mean how can one not just melt!

 

For our session together I set up a mock bed filled with soft blankets and pillows for baby “J” to play in. He did keep his daddy busy as the baby wrangler for when baby “J” wanted to escape the scene. Here are some photos of a sneak peek into our session together!
