Valentine's special...

Valentine's Day has always been a little extra special around my house growing up, because, it is also my parents' anniversary. :o) Now, I am all about tradition, and making memories. One of my most lasting memories has always been our celebrations each year. I'm pretty sure we can thank my oldest sister for getting this one started, but each year we've "surprised" my parents and made dinner.

This isn't just any dinner of course, it's like a 15 course meal, and bless my parents for being is NEVER on time! I don't think it ever matters what time we begin, but it's usually 7...8...9...o'clock by the time we sit down to eat.

If the phone rings during dinner, my Mom will inform the caller that she is enjoying her "romantic candle light dinner for 14" (though this number has jumped over the years), and yes, there really are candles...but romantic? Well...maybe not so much. :o)

Well, tomorrow marks 32 years. I went grocery shopping for "the meal" after work today, and I am passing the torch of dinner making privileges to my younger siblings to carry on. This year, I get to be a guest, unless of course they're running late!

So in honor of my parent's 32 years of celebration, I would like to offer a 32% discount on all previous sessions* (prior to 2012). In order to take advantage of this special, simply e-mail me at before the stroke of midnight on February 14, 2012 to receive your coupon code. I will upload your session(s) onto my website: & you will have until Friday February 17, 2012 to place your order.

Speaking of celebrating...

A special sneak peek...

I achieved a milestone of my own this week. :o) I photograph twins a lot, but I didn't start doing this professionally until after they were all older. A few days ago, I had the privilege of photographing my very first set of newborn twins. :o)

First off, just want to mention again how much I appreciate my little sister. I think she was {almost} as excited about this as I was! Here's a little gimps of her in action.

I'm convinced she has become a mind reader, she knows exactly what I'm thinking most of the time! I love working with her.

These sweet babies were 5 days old, and did very well once we got all settled in.


I'm already looking forward to doing more twin sessions in the future. :o)

And the winner is...

Today I had the privilege of being part of The Collective. What a wonderful group of vendors to spend the day with! Thank you to all who came by to say hello. I enjoyed talking with each one of you. :o)

Each vendor took part in supporting the bair foundation. I sold tickets for a chance to win a Gift Certificate, and a winner has been chosen!

Congratulations Diana V!

So never to have a post without a picture (of course) here's a peek of what I'm working on...

I cannot believe he is 3 months old already!

I know the blog has been quiet, I have taken a much needed break after the holidays. But don't worry, I'm still here. :o) I've had the opportunity to do some behind-the-scenes work, and am now offering new collections and products. SO exciting!

Enjoy your weekend!
