I Heart Faces is having a photo challenge! The challenge is "Hey Girl". It must be a picture that has a girl's face in it. Since I just did Sarah's pictures....
This is my favorite!

Happy 6th Birthday, Sarah!

This cute little girl turned 6 last Saturday! Sarah just knows that she's the little princess! She loves to dance and cheer. While taking these pictures, she showed me a few of her moves.

 How can you say no to that sweet face?!
 She is working it!
 She is just too cute!

The whole time we were doing this shoot "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" was playing in my head. Sarah was so fun to work with! I told her mom that I think I have just found my new model!

I Need a Vacation!

I sooooo need to get away! Just a couple of more weeks and the semester will be over. We are planning a trip to Lake Lure again but this time it will be without homework! I am really hoping to go for my birthday weekend in just a couple of weeks. We really loved it last year and made a vow to go every year from now on.

Can't wait to go back and take better pictures (I was on auto when I took this picture...don't know why).

My Son is My Inspiration

One thing I have learned from my son is that no matter how small you are, never give up. He is the smallest on his baseball team but his heart is in the game. If someone says he is too small and can't do anything, he does what he can to prove them wrong.

P52: Week 16-Things that Grow

This week's challenge at My 3 Boybarians is "Things that Grow". We got Buster one month ago as of April 17. And boy, has he grown! He has gained 2.5 lbs and is doing so well with his house-training. Yes, he is spoiled...

Little Tiana

I had the pleasure of photographing a precious little girl yesterday (and today because I didn't like the way some of the pictures came out). She was fussy at first but seemed to settle down after we had taken her clothes off. I think this picture is my favorite so far...

Baseball Season Has Begun!

I am not big on baseball...everyone knows I am a football fan. But because my youngest loves to play, I have to be there.
Last week, I was asked to take pictures of another game that started before my son's. Little did I know...I was taking pictures of the wrong teams! I was at the wrong field! But I still got some wonderful shots!

My son's game was later in the evening. I do not like taking pictures at night because I don't have an external flash and I really do not like using my on camera flash. So I had to put a little more effort into editing these.

Harleigh's First Birthday

It is so hard to believe that Harleigh is 1! I was blessed with the opportunity to capture her first birthday party. Lord knows I would not miss this day for anything...even with a back She was the center of everyone's attention.

She loved being on the trampoline even though she was giving me a heart attack the whole entire time she was on it.

She wanted to ride on her bubble lawnmower instead of pushing it...

She got tons of presents but really loved her dolls...

Her princess cake was beautiful!

She even had a cake of her own to smash!
I think she loved it...what do you think?!

Life Lessons

Ok...this is the first time I am doing this so please bear with me.
Some things I learned this week:

1. There are not enough hours in the day! Homework, exams, photography, looking for a job, and managing a household...this girl is worn out!
2.I need to use this spring break that is coming up to get caught up on all my homework.

3. When taking action pictures, I need to have my camera on AF-C (Continuous-servo AF) mode. (I actually knew this, just had a "duh" moment)

4. Looking for a job is not easy!
5. I really cannot function without at least one cup of coffee.
6. Spring is here because my allergies are kicking my butt!

7. Zumba is not just a video game on the Wii...
8. After doing Zumba, everything in (or on?) my body hurts!
9. That means it working and I am actually getting some exercise.
10. I will never be a size 2 again!
11. My second home is the grocery store ( I am there every day)...
12. I always manage to forget something every time I go to the store.

Beautiful B&W Photo Challenge

Photo Challenge Submission
I love this picture of my son! I think it's because of the light in his eyes. The light in his eyes is from a reflector. I don't use the reflector very often but this picture showed me what fabulous light you get when you do use it! I am liking up with I Heart Faces for the "Beautiful B&W" photo challenge. There have been some beautiful submissions...go and check them out!

Favorite Things

I am joining a new photo challenge called Finagle a Photo. The subject this week is Favorite Things. One of my favorite things are my son's eyes. Not only are they a beautiful color, he has the longest eyelashes! I am so jealous because even if I put I tons of mascara, I barely have any eyelashes. That's when fake lashes come in!
