Happy Halloween!

Happy Halloween Everyone...

Despite the fact that I don't quite understand this holiday, it's still fun to celebrate. I know last year we had this super fun party with lots of "Halloween" themed desserts, a scary movie playing on the projector, scary music playing with a strobe light that seriously made you want to throw up... Ha! It was SO fun! This year, on the other hand, is a bit more relaxed... no strobe light, no fun "halloween" themed desserts, no scary movie or music... man, we sound really lame right now! Ha!

But we are so excited for all the trick-o-treaters to arrive later today and we even have a little monster that will be giving candy out... don't be fooled he's not a scary monster, just a super cute one!

Enjoy your Halloween!!!

Isabelle :: 6 months

I know I sound like a broken record when I say this, but seriously, where does the time go?

It's been such a busy last couple weeks, I have not yet had the chance to update you all on what has been going on. I have had tons of photoshoots that I will be posting since I have a little bit more time now... now that I have our little-big guy on a "schedule"... well, sort of "schedule". I'm trying, and being a first time mom, these last 8 weeks have been the most challenging, yet most wonderful moments of my life. I knew it was going to be hard, but man-oh-man is it tough. It didn't help that Jackson got pretty sick and the only way he would sleep was propped up in his bouncer for a week. Poor guy! Along with myself only getting maybe 3-4 hours a sleep that whole entire week. I don't quite remember all of the photo shoots I had due to the haze of sleep depravation I was under, but things are getting SO much better... and it could not be in better timing because...

Our little-big man started SMILING a few weeks back! He has got the cutest smile and I get so excited to see it. When I go pick him up from his naps, when he's done eating, when I change him, when I ask in my baby-type voice "Where's your smile?", or when I sing 'Twinkle, Twinkle' to him, he gives me the biggest open mouth smile... similar to this... (Note: I took this at 6 weeks, so it's much better now... but he's napping right now so I don't want to wake him just for this post! Ha!)


Pretty darn cute, huh?! I think so too.

But someone else that is pretty darn cute is Miss Isabelle...

I met Miss Izzy back in March when her mama was WAY past due... I'm talking 3 weeks past due. Ek! I have a "new" perspective on that situation, and I could not even imagine those three long weeks for her. But I'm sure she is thinking how time is flying by since Miss Izzy turned 6 months old, and she is the sweetest, most precious 6 month old. I love her big brown eyes and her super sweet smile. She is A-DORABLE!

Check out a few of my favorites from our session...

Love her little facial expressions...


Love her smile...


Mama brought her REAL pearls...


And in the mouth they went... and why wouldn't they?! Ha!


I LOVE this one... look at those eyes!


Umm... is this tutu the most adorable tutu ever?




LOVE, LOVE, LOVE all the colorful paper balls...


Happy Wednesday!!!
