It’s HOT | columbia md family photographer

June 1st, 2011

I love summer.  But really, these near 100 degree days this early in the year are a bit much.  Today we escaped the heat for a little while with a trip to the nice, air conditioned playplace at McDonalds.  Apparently that air conditioning doesn’t carry as well to the top of the playplace though, as […]

I love summer.  But really, these near 100 degree days this early in the year are a bit much.  Today we escaped the heat for a little while with a trip to the nice, air conditioned playplace at McDonalds.  Apparently that air conditioning doesn’t carry as well to the top of the playplace though, as Daniel came down completely sweaty.  Heat aside, he appreciates it, because then he can have “silly hair”!

And while I’m posting snaps of the little squirt, here’s his “cool dude” impression from the other day while we were waiting for the school bus to bring home Noah:

Heat’s supposed to break soon, thankfully.  Until then, stay cool!

Snapshot monday | columbia md family photographer

January 17th, 2011

New year, finally getting back into the swing of things… Daniel is a hat kid.  He’s always loved them.  To the point where I’ll try one on him in a store and then I have to buy it because he won’t take it off.  On black friday, we went to the Piedmont Craftsman’s Fair in […]

New year, finally getting back into the swing of things…

Daniel is a hat kid.  He’s always loved them.  To the point where I’ll try one on him in a store and then I have to buy it because he won’t take it off.  On black friday, we went to the Piedmont Craftsman’s Fair in NC, and got my boys each a hat from The Mouse Works.  These hats are so cute.  If you need at hat for your kids (or yourself!) definitely check them out.  Warm, well made, adorable, and earth friendly!  Daniel loves his.  Wears it every day, and refuses to take it off when we come inside (he says he’s “a little chilly” but he also tries to sleep in it).  Last week, he was eating lunch, with his hat, and it was just a little crooked, and so cute.  I had to snap a pic.

(Ignore the expression.  He’s watching TV.)

At last! | columbia md photographer

November 22nd, 2010

Big happenings around here this past Thursday!  Remember the loose tooth?  We got a lot of giggle mileage from that tooth.  First, it hung down a little lower than the other tooth.  Then it pointed inwards.  And for the last week, it’s been poking out.  But when Noah got off the bus on Thursday, it […]

Boo! | columbia md child photographer

October 25th, 2010

Getting past the busiest part of the year and I’m finally able to come up for air!  This weekend, we went to Boo at the Zoo at the National Zoo.  If you’ve never been to Boo at the Zoo, I highly recommend it.  The kids have a fabulous time every year, and we bring home […]

Getting past the busiest part of the year and I’m finally able to come up for air!  This weekend, we went to Boo at the Zoo at the National Zoo.  If you’ve never been to Boo at the Zoo, I highly recommend it.  The kids have a fabulous time every year, and we bring home huge bags of loot.  It’s slightly less appealing for the parents, who have to push a stroller up that giant hill at the end of the night, but it’s still fun.

Here’s my panda and my earth at the start of the evening:

My worst models | columbia md family photographer

October 4th, 2010

We took the kids out this weekend to try to get some christmas card photos.  I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again – it is so much easier for me to get portraits of someone else’s kids than my own.  Here’s a little “behind the scenes” video to demonstrate.

Lemon Tree | columbia md child photographer

September 20th, 2010

Late last spring, I was reading a magazine and discovered the dwarf meyer lemon tree.  It’s a small lemon tree that can be grown in a container – outside in the summer, and in the winter, inside.  And it blooms all winter long, inside.  Well, I had to have one.  We like growing fruits and […]

Late last spring, I was reading a magazine and discovered the dwarf meyer lemon tree.  It’s a small lemon tree that can be grown in a container – outside in the summer, and in the winter, inside.  And it blooms all winter long, inside.  Well, I had to have one.  We like growing fruits and veggies with the kids, so this seemed the perfect addition.  Ordered a tree online, and a few days later, we had it.  It’s a tiny little thing, maybe a foot tall now.  It’ll grow bigger, but will probably top out at 2-3 feet, depending on how big a container it’s in.  It arrived with one small, green lemon on it, which a squirrel promptly stole.  Nothing much has happened to it this summer, but yesterday I noticed this:

Such beautiful blossoms!  And so many!  Now I really can’t wait to have it flower in my house all winter long.  I snapped this with my iphone, though I sure wish I had a macro lens to capture it with.

Happy Birthday! | columbia md family photographer

September 13th, 2010

Today’s my baby’s birthday.  Not so baby anymore – he’s 3 now!  And once you make it up there in years, sometimes you need a little help to get you going in the morning: (Don’t worry – it’s milk!  Starbucks now puts the kids’ drinks in teeny little starbucks cups and I thought it was […]

Snapshot Monday, Back to School Edition | columbia md family photographer

August 30th, 2010

Yup, my big guy got on the bus this morning to head for his first day of 1st grade.  He’s endlessly excited about this.  Over the weekend, he said, “I can’t believe I’m in first grade!  Sometimes it feels like I was just born yesterday.”  Yeah, tell me about it. Hope everyone else in Howard […]

Hope everyone else in Howard County enjoys their first day of school today too!
