Fairy Princess

Friday, August 22, 2008


CJ's new favorite words are "see, I toldga!" and it is driving me crazy! Is this normal for a three-year old?? It has to stop, so I told him that it was a bad thing to say. Hope I am not confusing him too much. Do you know how many times you have to say "I told you" to a three-year old. I told you to not to flush that down the toilet, I told you to go to the bathroom before we left...etc. Now I need a nicer way to say that to him.

And when I tell a story on this blog, I usually get two to three reassuring emails letting me know that that is exactly the same story of their child. So any new "I told you" translations are welcome.

Here is my last big preview... All sessions from last Saturday will be up tonight.

First sneak peak

Look how cute. I was so excited to shoot these Irish twins. Remember this "Look, I can pick up my sister!" Just the eyes, the color, the braids. Oh my, way too fun!

Part two, Babies.......and one model.

So hard to chose just one image from everyone's session. Here are the babies of the day, just how I like them, slow crawlers to pre crawlers. Such a nice break from chasing toddlers around. And look at these sweet smiles! But first, this girl totally belongs in a J Crew ad.

And now for a very late night of Gymnastics! Hurray! Every four years, my three sisters and I would huddle on a couch, waiting through commercials to get to that amazing event. Women's all-around. I get nostalgic just thinking about it. And now, here we are all with kids, almost forbidden to talk on the phone with each other about it in fear that one of us had to Tivo the event. Because you know if you know the results ahead of time, it is just not as much fun....

Part one

Way to many images to post here.... Here is the first batch of goodies from Saturday. These are all the kids with ABSOLUTELY NO personality. Can you detect the sarcasm??? But if I only shot kids like these, I would think my job WAY too easy....

So obsessed....

with my new camera. The Stylus 1030 SW is soooooo much fun. It is totally water proof, shock proof, and my personal favorite, drop proof. (of course it won't be as much fun buying new cameras if this one won't break like my last three)

As for my contest winner, Shannon, CJ picked your name out of my hat-like object. Congrats, and email me the image you would like to have!

The Perfect Family Portrait!

I will post the winner to the party contest tomorrow, but for now, a quick post.

My good friend and neighbor Firuzeh has been looking for the one good family portrait to hang above her mantle since the day these twins were born. On this photo shoot, we created new secret laughing techniques that will later on be sold on ebay.

But really, I love this one Firuzeh. Why? Because it says so much. After all, we were trying to get two two-year-olds to sit and smile. They never do that on a daily basis, so why pretend? right?

But becuase we worked so hard for it, here is my favorite traditional shot of the day!

Thanks for peeking!
