My Flowers

We're trying a garden this year. However, we don't have anywhere to plant since we live in the woods, so Uncle David got us these containers and we are going to try it out. Wish us luck!!!

Baby "J"~ Baby Photography~ Dreams Do Come True Photography~ Bloomington, Indiana

This sweet little guy, baby "J", couldn't figure out what was going on. Couldn't get him to smile whatsoever, but I don't blame him since he was woke up from his nap to take these. But he did really good!!! Even though the majority aren't smiling, he is as cute as can be!
Enjoy, Papa "B"!!!

Fun In The Sun

There was a wasp in her house when she walked in it. She was not very happy!

Filling up her "sink" with water.

One of her many habits, biting her nails! Drives me crazy!!! I don't even know the last time I had to cut her nails cause she is always chewing on them instead.

Puppy Love

Mike took this picture and it is completely out of focus but I still love the expression on her face and how excited it made both her and Gertie.
She is getting too big for Josie to try picking her up now, so I helped Gertie up to Josie's shoulders so she could hug her.
Ah, Puppy Love!!!

35th Bday

Wow, I've got some catching up to do again! I feel like this is the beginning of all of my posts anymore. But life is busy and sometimes it just gets in the way of things!
Anyway, I'm going to work my way backwards with photos, so if you are interested, just bear with me.
Monday, the 13th was my 35th Bday party. And this year it seemed like we celebrated it every day of the weekend.
Saturday, I got up and went to get my hair done at Christie's. After that, I met Mom and her and Dad bought me some clothes for my bday. Mike called while I was in town and he and Josie were going to Marsh to buy some shrimp to smoke out for me that night. So he made me my birthday dinner that night. It was really good!
Then Sunday night we all met at Cafe Pizzeria for my birthday party. I think this might be the new place for us for my birthday. We went there last year as well, and it so nice to have the room to ourselves, kids can go from booth to booth and not disturb anyone. Nothing to have to clean up and no meal to fix. Easy is right up my alley now!
Mike had Josie out all day running and visiting so needless to say she didn't get a nap. When we drove into meet everyone she fell asleep and then woke in a mood.
I honestly can't even remember what she was pouting about here. This is the norm anymore when I'm around. She can be the perfect little angel for everyone else, but if I'm there, then it is pout time and backtalk time! Why is it the Mom's get to have all the attitude?!
I handed the camera over to Mike and he and Michelle were playing around. But this picture he got of Michelle isn't bad.

L&B ~ Dreams Do Come True Photography ~ Bloomington, Indiana

A few weekends ago, I had the opportunity to drive and walk around with two great girls and my camera in hand. I know I had a lot of fun and I'm pretty sure they did as well.
I can remember being about the same age and taking photos of myself and a friend as we changed outfits and modeled for each other. What a great childhood memory! Just shows me how long photography has been an obsession of mine. I didn't do it cause I wanted to be a model. I just like taking the photos and changing the outfits and scenes.
This is a great idea for a group of girls, they will have photos that will last a lifetime showcasing their friendship and reminding them of their dreams, 15 years down the road. Wait, it's been 15 years since highschool?! That's a post for another day! :-) HeeHee!!!
Anyway, on to the photos. We hit up a church first on Bethel Lane, then went and walked around campus and Kirkwood, and ended up on Simpson Chapel Rd. I will try and narrow down my favorites but it will be extrememly hard. If anyone wants to see the whole grouping, check out my Facebook Page.
On to the first girl, "L":

And now "B":

And now both:

 Thank you girls! I had a great time and when you're ready to go again, call me!

But I hope this makes you both happy! You guys were great!!!
