Yesterday was Jubees 36th birthday. I’m horrible with sending cards out on time. Peanut and I decided to take pictures and send him a note via email. I love this one of her. Her spark and funny bone have not gone away. That I am grateful for. Continue reading Jubees Birthday
Dave’s birthday and Father’s Day are always days apart. I try to surprise him with something but the big gift ends up being something he’s chosen. This year he got an underwater camera. We shopped for it. The surprise was a box set of Anthony Bourdaine’s No Reservations. And a half surprise half expected gift … Continue reading Dad’s Birthday Gifts
I’m so behind in my postings! But I know years from now I won’t mind that I was late but I would mind if I didn’t do it at all! Dave’s birthday was last month. We knew he was going to be working on his birthday. However, he was on for a night shoot so … Continue reading Dave’s Birthday
Almost a year ago we planned a trip to NYC for my 40th. Then I got pregnant and my due date turned out to be 3 days after my birthday. So…no trip, no party…not much of anything really but I’ll take a baby over anything in the world. In February we celebrated both my birthday … Continue reading 40th Birthday
Tonight is the last night I can say I’m 39 years old and 39 weeks pregnant. I had to capture it…messy room and all. A long time ago before I had any sort of wisdom and understanding about having children, I swore I would never have a child in my 40’s. I remember saying “if … Continue reading The last night of 39…

Last week P picked up our Canon 40 D while l wasn’t looking and started taking pictures of our house. She worked it as if it was a heavy extension of her hand. D came home a little later and I had to show him what she had done so I asked her to take … Continue reading A Photographer in the Making?
Friday was P’s birthday and on Saturday we had her party. In my humble opinion, I think it was fantastic! We only invited 8 kids. 6 came and everyone was between 15 and 28mos. Keeping it to a narrow age gap is one reason why I think it went so well. It wasn’t just the … Continue reading Birthday Party!
To My Dearest Pea,The past two years have been an incredible journey for me. I know you’ve heard me say the first year with you was brutally hard. I was overwhelmed with what I was suppose to do for you. This past year I think I’ve grown into my role as your mother. I’m getting … Continue reading Happy 2nd Birthday Pea!
Last year I grabbed a vintage French poster and reworded it to create this invite to P’s first birthday party. For personal reasons we didn’t have the party. I was bummed. I had been planning it since she was 6 months old. I was so overwhelmed with a baby. I could only do a little … Continue reading 1st Invite
