To My Sons

To my sons
The best of the best. I love watching you guys grow your learning and stretching how your tiny bodies change from chubby little hands to muscly looking arms as you strain to climb just a little higher finally conquering your favorite “climbing tree” out front. I love how your words and questions turn clearer and make more sense with every passing day. I look forward to the times when you come home for the holidays and we can sit and talk about anything. everything. You’re my little men and for now those conversations are more a picture of snuggling, tickling and lots and lots of giggles and kisses. I love these moments and soaking them up as much as I possible can cause I know the day is coming when I’ll stand in the driveway watching you pull away fighting back the tears cause I know how much I’ll miss you, till you’re home for Christmas.

I stumbled upon this poem last night on a blog called awelltraveledwoman.tumblr.com.  It took my breath away.  I just had to share!

The Cromwell Family

The Cromwells have been coming to me since my "studio" was a small room in my small house with a piece of polar fleece tacked to one of the walls for a backdrop.  And that my friends, was a very long time ago!

We go way back.

And in all those years, I don't think we have ever, EVER, had a sunny day for a photo-shoot.  It always rains on us... always!!  So we were all stunned that today was sunny and warm and just an absolutely gorgeous day!

Thank you Seattle!!!

Here is a little sneak peek from out afternoon out at the Arboretum!

We snuck in a couple iPhone photos for fun!


Lucky for me, my studio is located across the street from the Greenwood Market, a truly great grocery store!  And every year they put out a fantastic pumpkin display, which provides a fun and festive backdrop for me and my little clients!  So cute!


So, Pup-A-Palooza was on Saturday, and what a day it was!!  I would like to thank all who participated in helping make this day so much fun and such a success!  Especially our friends at Good Clean Dog for suppling the adorable goodie bags, and my good friend, and event planner extraordinaire Katy Griffiths, for acting as my secretary, stylist and dog whisperer!  You rock!!

I had so much fun!  And, I kind of want to do it again. Only next time, I won't wear black!
