Sullivan! {Cincinnati Children’s Photographer}

Okay, okay … I know I’m supposed to be on maternity leave.  But I’m just trying to keep my mind busy until this little guy decides to make his debut.  I typically don’t share too many personal photos on my blog, but I wanted to share a recent shoot I did with Sullivan.  He just turned two (can’t even believe it … tear) and just loves to play ball.  So naturally, I wanted to get some pictures of the little guy on a ball field.  I loved how the photos turned out and wanted to share with you!

I would love to get into doing more “themed” sessions like this with YOUR little ones.  If you’re interested, just let me know!  Whatever your little tikes are into, I am sure we can come up with a fun shoot idea for them!!!

Meet Garrett, Kira, and Riley.  These three are very special to me … they are my nieces and nephew!  I was thrilled to be able to hang out with them last night for a little photo shoot.  My sister-in-law, Allyson, is an amazing mom (really!!!) and I was so happy to be able to capture some memories of her with her kiddos.  These three were wound up for their shoot, so it was quite entertaining for all of us.  Here’s a sneak peek …

My shoot this morning got rained out, but we did manage to get some pockets of nice weather today.  So I went out with Sullivan to take his 11 month photos when we had a break from the showers.  I can hardly believe that he is almost one.  It literally feels like last week when we were in Chicago at the hospital anticipating his arrival.  Time has gone by way too quickly, as everyone warned it would.  We took Sully’s pics today with the same car that my hubs and I drove on our wedding day.  He is a lucky kid to have so many cool cars in his life.   His Papaw is already working on restoring a car for him – a 1930s Pontiac Coupe – and he’s not even one yet!  What a life.

Maybe I’m a wee bit biased, but I think my family makes some pretty darn cute babies.  Evidence:  my 4 month old niece Elyse!  Yesterday I spent some time playing dress up with her and sneaking some sweet pictures.  Isn’t she precious?

Well, my little man is six months old.  SIX!  It’s hard to believe really.  I feel like just yesterday that I was carrying him around in my belly, wondering who he would look like, what color hair he would have, what he would grow up to be … Now here he is, the spitting image of his mama (lucky guy!), just growing up before our very eyes.  Six months ago, my life became so much fuller, richer, happier.  Six months ago I learned the meaning of true, unconditional love.  I love you so much little man!

Here are some pictures of our little baby Banjo (special thanks to Auntie Cristina Maria for the adorable boots and to Papaw for the cowboy hat)!

Sweet Things Gives Back!

· January 6, 2011 · 2:40 pm · Personal, Sweet

Hey y’all!  So this year, my resolution is to give back.  And I’m going to use Sweet Things as a way to do so.  I recently heard some statistics that were pretty alarming and opened my eyes to the conditions that children in less fortunate countries deal with every day.

  • Nearly 1 billion people don’t have safe water to drink.
  • A child dies every 15 seconds from a lack of clean water.
  • 1 in 4 children who die before age 5 worldwide, die of a water related disease.
  • Children often walk miles every day to collect dirty water to drink

Having access to clean water is something that we all likely take very much for granted.  Yet for just $10.00, you can give clean water to someone who very much deserves it for 10 years!  Something so small and so simple can save a life.

So this year, $10.00 from every photo shoot that I do will go to this cause.  With your help, we will help children to live fuller, longer, healthier lives.  If you want to find out more, please visit http://thewaterproject.org/.

Thanks for your help!  :)
