When the Saints Go Marching in….

Before I started the business I used to photograph the children ALL THE TIME…. to the point they would run from the camera when it came out, but now it’s usually iPhone pictures of them at events.  I’m editing client photos all day every day that the kids portraits have suffered.
I have been wanting to photograph them for a while and we recently finished our 1st shoot.  Tomorrow is All Saints Day and the kids will be dressing up as Saints with friends and classmates for an event at the Church….  I was thrilled at their eagerness and enthusiasm for jumping back in front of the camera.  They wanted to pose, they took direction and they wanted to do well.  As a result, I think we captured some truly phenomenal shots and I can’t wait to photograph them again.  I thought they each did an incredible job portraying their saint.  This afternoon will be the Halloween costume shoot and soon to follow the Christmas card shoot.  What I used to dread, I am now eager about.
In creating the saint costumes…. it totally helped having photography props!!!  My red rose crown for Saint Rose of Lima, my shredded muslim skirt for Saint Joan of Arc, the fur vest for Saint John the Baptist, and my red cape for Saint George.
Kaylee (one of our triplets): Saint Rose of Lima
Addison (one of our triplets): Saint Joan of Arc
Cody:  Saint George
Jadon (one of our triplets): Saint John the Baptist


Over the weekend the triplets turned 8….  how did we get here so quickly.  I wish we could forward and rewind life.  I don't want to relieve all the years, but I wish I could go back for a little while and hold those tiny babies.

We celebrated their birthday (just family) at Main Event and played laser tag (even mamaw and papaw played).

The cake requests this year….  Frozen (Addison), Pocahontas (Kaylee) and Lincoln Logs (Jadon)… so here are my creations.

Catching up yet again

Seems like I am always playing catch up on the blog…. ugh, but I refuse to let this go….

We did celebrate a birthday in July… my baby is SIX years old… this year he wanted a Panda Bear cake so we went with Kung Foo Panda.

Kaylee was recently fitted for a head gear and looks just adorable in it….  she is young enough that she LOVES it.  She feels special because it's an experience she doesn't have to share with her siblings.

 Addison is now missing her two front teeth (she lost one on the last day of our annual beach vacation)… this time the dentist didn't have to pull them.  The finally came out on their own.

Cody took a spill in the house… running…. I had just said "NO running in the house when he went down.  Several external and internal stitches resulted.

A quick picture of the girls at church holding some of the new babies….
