lollipops and train tracks.

I don't know how I never posted any of these! I just know I did! This family is beautiful and I loved so many of their pictures!

in the event that a toddler decides they have had enough of picture taking,
lollipops can buy you some time. :)

This might be my favorite picture of all time...

out in the wild west....

and now a random assortment of favorites from the ipad-earning mini-sessions

It's late April, people!

If you saw this post, "I want", then you know that I wanted an ipad.
I then earned the clams to buy my ipad doing 7 mini-sessions that were quite fun. :)
On April 3rd, Apple released the much anticipated Ipad.
I went to Best Buy that day to see it.
But. I held out for the 3g version that was to be released in "late April." I pre-ordered my darling on April 3rd and have since devoured any news of when "late April" actually is. It's a very ambiguous little phrase.

Finally, it was reported on the internet and then later confirmed with a phone call to Apple themselves, that wise souls like myself who pre-ordered their ipads, would receive them on April 30th while others would have to wait until May 7th.
It's April 26th and they haven't even shipped my baby yet!
It's late April, People!
Send him my way!

Patience isn't my strong point. Can you tell?

And his name is Blaize.

He has hair this beautifully red and his name is Blaize. Isn't it perfect? Oh, he's a cutie.

He was also very excited about practicing his new found skill of walking so we stuck him up on dad's shoulders for a bit. :)

Chelsie, Blaize's mom, also taught with me at Glenn. I told you my story about me and Leslie. Chelsie was just as wonderful to work with. And, seriously, she dressed like a rock star every day. 6th graders love her. And I sure do! She has such a de-stressing personality. I could be near a mental break down and then I'd go hang out in Chelsie's classroom for a bit and suddenly the world was a fun happy place again!
I think this picture is so sweet. I love any picture where sweet pudgy toddler hands are doing something. Sometimes I just stare at my own son's hands andtry to memorize how perfect they are...and try not to cry thinking about how big they'll be someday...

hello, gorgeous!

our goal for this shoot was to show the three personalities of this senior...all dressed up, cowgirl, and casual, fun-loving. i'm thinking we did a pretty good job. her eyes are incredible, her smile is contagious, her legs are stinkin amazing, and her personality tops it all!
i mean, really! where do you get eyes like that?!

and legs like that?!

and a face that looks incredible with a smile or without?!

and a personality that just beams?!

and may i just say that the wind we had this day was incredible! there's nothing like a girl's hair blowing in the wind to add some natural glamour!
