kids

I have been working on my photography as much as possible the last few months which after working full-time, going to grad school and taking care of my family isn’t much. I am thinking of switching just to a photography blog so that I can share all my pictures with family, friends and maybe even possibly clients. I know I do have a few that still check this blog though (hi Dad!) so I am going to share a few of my kids for now. I am hoping to have my photography blog up in the next month or so though.

They are all looking!

We met Han and Steve at a park in Plano this weekend so I could take some pictures of sweet adorable Addi. I thought I would try to get a couple of the kids as well while we were there. I wasn’t expecting much but actually got some where they are all looking at me! Here are a few from the morning…

After I got all the pictures uploaded onto my laptop last night, Neal looked at the pictures and said “You didn’t get any pictures of the girls?” No I didn’t. As soon as they get their costumes on they think it is time to run down the street. So I’m sorry, not many pictures but I am sure you get the general idea…

workshop…

I have been following this photographer’s blog for a few months now. I love her pictures so when I had the opportunity to take an all day workshop with her last Saturday I jumped at the chance. I really loved the whole day and feel like I learned so much. I am really proud of some of these images and hope I can continue to practice with the kids once things calm down around here. I just wanted to share some of my favorites…

We made it…

Well, we all made it through our first week back to school. Sofia seems to be enjoying kindergarten and Charlotte is getting right back into the swing of things in 1st grade. They both have great teachers this year and I am excited to see them grow more this year. I really like the group of kids this year and am optimistic about my year. Here are a few pictures from the first day of school…

Winding down…

Well our summer break is starting to wind down although I don’t think our summer temperatures are going to be winding down anytime soon. Our upstairs A/C unit went out a few days ago and while it is back in action now we all spent several days sleeping together as one big family in the living room 🙂
The girls are so excited to start school especially Sofia since she will be going to kindergarten this year. I am not exactly ready to go back to school but it will nice to be back in a routine of some kind.

Michigan 2010

Once again we had a great time visiting all our family in Michigan this summer. The girls had so much fun playing with all their cousins! We stayed with sister this year for the first time since we had to bring Aslan and my mom just moved into a new condo. It was nice being able to spend so much time together this year and the kids appreciated having other kids around the whole time. We had a good time in the U.P also, although it was much warmer than it has been that past few summers and no A/C.
We had a nice little birthday party at the park for Sam and my grandpa. He had fallen the week before we got there but was feeling well enough to come out and celebrate with us.

We celebrated Sam’s 2nd birthday in the U.P. with Neal’s family. We found him a Yo Gabba Gabba cake which is his favorite show right now. He loved the cake and it was great having so many cousins there to celebrate with us!

We also celebrated the 4th while we were there. The kids has fun at the parade before the fireworks.

We also got lots of time in at my dad’s house, hanging by the pool.
