I thought he looked like a little gangster in his hoodie and got the brainstorm to do a photo session with baby's first shiner. You know I always say that I can see the beauty in everything and that includes a nasty black eye, which most moms would try to cover with make-up and immediately postpone any picture taking because of. Not I. These are the moments we need to photograph the most. It's a little piece of his childhood.
So I drove around the back alleys of New Braunfels looking for a spot that looks rough enough for my photo session, but not so rough that I wouldn't want to get out of my car with my precious boy. I made the mistake of turning down a wrong alley and splashed through a puddle of rotted milk and sour cheese slime. The smell was putrid and it followed us all over town -- even after the photo shoot and a trip to the grocery store. We finally had to retreat to a car wash to rid our car of the stink before making our way home. My life is in adventure, what can I say.

My photography class is on hiatus until the spring semester. It was a busy 10 weeks but I think the students learned a lot and I hope I've released 40 or so competent photography hobbyists out on the world.
On another note, Happy Birthday to my oldest daughter today. She's 11 going on 16 -- in attitude and personality. I can't believe I've been a mom for this long.
The photo I've decided to share today is my favorite of the week from a session I did last weekend. Isn't she beautiful!
Oh and one last news item. That issue of New Beginnings that my little business is featured in is out today. The article is about my Beauty of Motherhood series and my passion for breastfeeding photography. Check out the series under Galleries on my page and check out the magazine here http://viewer.zmags.com/publication/724fa0ad#/724fa0ad/1.

Take a look at John and Tami's wedding album if you haven't already. It's been so much fun processing these images.

The weekend went off without a glitch. The drama of the week before that usually happens before any wedding was finally ironed out and everyone came together to get these two hitched in style.
It was so much fun John and Tami. Thanks for letting me do this for you. I can't wait for you to see what I got!

The next day we headed out to Columbus for a photo session -- a sample of which I have displayed here. These clients had a beautiful piece of property and no shortage of appealing backdrops. The next morning I managed to fit in another bridal session before heading off to the Renaissance Festival with the family.
I'd like to say we rode all the rides and played all the games, but, seriously, who can afford to do that? Is it my imagination or have the prices on all the rides and games increased drastically over the past few years? At $3 a ride, times 3 kids, I'd need to take out a second mortgage to get my kids on all the rides and games at that place. I believe the goal of that festival is no longer to entertain and educate the masses but rather to separate each individual from their money as quickly and efficiently as possible. Each child did manage to leave with a souvenir and ride a few of the shorter-than-one-would-believe, yet-massively-expensive rides.
Now preparation is under way for this weekend when my brother-in-law will finally marry my new friend, Tami and I can't wait to celebrate with them. I'll be their photographer of course and I'll be only too happy to post some pictures here for everyone to see next week.

I thought I had it all under control until the next day when my children kept magically appearing with random pieces of candy that seemed to materialize out of thin air. Then I found the culprit. A hidden candy stash between the couch cushions. Those sneaky darlings!
