April Cherry Blossom Photo Shoot

October 27, 2012

For our photo shoot in April we went to downtown DC for annual cherry blossom festival (Thanks Penny!) It was a lot of fun, and I was VERY grateful for Penny driving us there. I am still terrified to drive on the interstate roads here. I did once, it was an awful experience that ended […]

Spring Flowers

March Photo Shoot

October 25, 2012

It’s pretty sad at how behind I am in updating our family blog. Our March photo shoot with Katelyn was a lot of fun. I saw a cool idea online with the balloon back drop and thought it would be very colorful and fun and perfect for March. (We were going with the St. Patty’s […]

Chop, Chop, Timber

May 17, 2012

Finally, some February pictures! It was pretty chilly, so we decided to try an indoor studio set up this time, complete with a giant lollipop sucker! Anything for cooperation right?                       And yes, Katelyn of course doesn’t always cooperate or like her pictures being taken… […]

Snow Day

I feel like all I do is play catch up on this blog! Oh well, the pictures are still cute enough to share ( despite the fact that they are from January! ) It had snowed the night before – and yes my grass is was still green.   We woke up to a little […]

Katelyn’s Photo Shoot {January}

April: Don’t Flash Me!!!

August 22, 2011
