Meghan



March 17, 2009     Portraits

Yesterday's glorious 60+ degree day was absolutely perfect for a little photo shoot with my good friend Meghan. She needed some shots for her bodybuilding competition at the end of the month and I was thrilled to be able to help out. As you will see, she is extremely photogenic so my job was easy. :)

Good luck Meghan at the NPC Upper Midwest Championships! You are going to do GREAT! :)



I personally think she's going to win :)





Meghan's signature move :)

Wild Weekend



March 16, 2009     Personal

This weekend was quite the adventure! My sister and her husband have been wanting to paint their house, so we volunteered to take their 3 kiddos for the weekend. It was a weekend filled with hundreds of activities, about a thousand snack breaks and one big nap (which I am personally very proud of because all 3 kids were sleeping at the SAME TIME). It was a miracle!

We had a blast drawing pictures on the windows, going on "squirrel-catching" adventures (we went on a long walk to try to find squirrels because Adam and April really wanted to catch one...which obviously didn't happen, but it was funny watching them try :)), playing Mario Kart, Barbies, coloring, making pancakes, watching Kung Fu Panda and simply pushing each other around in a laundry basket. The kids were little angels the entire time and the days just flew by! (I would have taken more pictures, but we kind of had our hands full):)

After we brought them home yesterday, Eric and I were zombies and in bed by 8:30 p.m. last night getting 10 hours of glorious SLEEP!! (I really don't know how my sister does it!) :)

(By the way, whoever invented washable markers is my new best friend!)


Who knew that Crayola made markers for windows!? The kids loved drawing beautiful murals in our kitchen! :)



Erin thought it was more fun to draw on herself than the windows :)



After a full-on dance party to Eric's tunes, he let Adam strum a few notes. Will he grow up to be the next Eric Clapton?? :)



April being as cute as ever!

Adam, April & Erin



March 2, 2009     Portraits

Today I had a little impromptu shoot at my house to capture my littlest niece, Erin, at 18 months. Her big brother and sister came along too, so I had the chance to photograph all 3 of my favorite little people! Although I'm completely exhausted and struggling to stay vertical after the shoot, it was SO much fun! :) (I really don't know how my sister does it everyday!)


Here's the little princess April who is almost 4 years old. Just a few days ago she decided to cut her own hair so that she could "look just like mommy". Needless to say, it about sent my sister into cardiac arrest when she discovered April next to a HEAPING pile of hair. Here she is sporting her cute new look. :)



Adam, who is now a whopping SIX years old, has become quite the poser! :) I must say, he's incredibly easy to photograph when I tell him that he can play Wii if he lets me take his picture. Is bribery a bad thing??



And here's 18-month old Erin who could not be any cuter with those rosy cheeks of hers and big blue eyes! She is probably my toughest little person to photograph - one second she's smiling, the next she's SPRINTING away from me! :)









Window light does magical things to a child's eyes!



Do you agree??:)
