I won this adorable little shirt in a contest. The maker of this cute shirt has an etsy store and sells all sorts of onesies and shirts with a variety of pictures. After I recieved the shirt this weekend I shot off an email to her to thank her for it and sent this picture along with it. She than asked me if she could use the pictures in her etsy shop and I of couse said yes. They are not the greatest pictures of him, he would not stay still long enough for me to get a really good shot...he was too busy exploring the outdoors! Here is the link to the etsy shop if you care to check it out. These onesies and shirts would make wonderful baby gifts!

What to wear....

I know I have a hard time trying to decide what everyone is going to wear when I take my childrens' pictures (it's especially tough when you have to coordinate 5 children!) Well I came across this on one of the blogs I like to peruse and I think some of you will find it very helpful (and please do check out the Sugar Photography Blog...I absolutely love her work! She's definitely an inspiration to me and I hope I become half the photographer she is!) Here's the link: Big Mama and here's the link to Sugar Photography: Sugar Enjoy, and I have to agree with Big Mama's comment: "Just be warned that there is a lot of precious baby squishiness all over the place and it will cause your ovaries to tap dance on your uterus."

Welcome to my photography blog. I just want to thank everyone who has been so supportive of me in this new endeavor. While it might be a while before things actually take off, I hope you will continue to check back here and take a look at my work. I intend to take some more photography classes first and to also familiarize myself more with some good photo editing software before I really start moving on this. However, I will still be posting some of my work periodically so you will be able to watch me grow as a photographer. Hopefully, you will like what you see and I will be meeting you in person for your very own shoot! Please feel free to respond or email me with comments, suggestions or anything that strikes your fancy and if you have photography experience I would love to hear any suggestions or tips you might have!
