Im sorry for abandoning my blog for a whole two n a half weeks! I know that I said that I was going to try to blog 3 times a week but I totally got off track with my new baby niece being born, jury duty, our poor Skippito Friskito dying on us and then leaving to Henderson to visit my sister & family!
Before we get to my gorgeous niece, let me just tell you about Skippito… it was not my fault that Skippy died! His death is still unknown… I found him in the morning in his food dish so I’m thinking that he choked. Poor babycito!!! We told lil Jack that his parents came to pick him up because they missed him and they took him to go on an adventure. He was completely devastated! Ugh I even started crying because his little heart was broken. I don’t know why I thought saying that he went on an adventure would be easier than telling him that he died! So we decided no more little pets, we’re going to wait to get a dog! Yippee!
Now on to a happy note… the beautiful Miss Ava Marie has blessed us with her presence! I don’t shoot newborns very often, and seriously after shooting this session Ive realized that newborn photography is a true art! I have no clue how they get these crazy cute poses! I just don’t have those skills but lil Ava was soo cooperative! She slept the whole time and not once peed on me!! Woo hoo!! So here she is only 10 days old…
She smiled for me!!!

Most days, you'll find me in mismatched socks and a top knot, working behind my computer with a smile on my face, listening to Zac Brown Band and R&B
--or, dancing in the kitchen with my 3 littles and hunka husband, seeing who could come up with the coolest dance moves.
