oh boy, i am so excited to announce that i am working on setting up a new little studio in jamestown. it's a huge space that needs a lot of TLC, but i am excited to have this great opportunity to have my own studio space. here is a pic of what it looks like now. i am hoping to have an opening date of the first week of september. yeah!

i hate to do this to justin, but i couldn't resist. i told him he needed to take a bath. he asked if he could take one in the pool. without giving it much thought, i said sure. i look outside and this is what i see. i couldn't resist running to get the camera and capturing this naked, white butt. someday i will use this for blackmail. you mom's know what i'm talking about...

i was honored to be able to take family pictures for an old friend of mine, amy. what a beautiful family. i had more fun on this shoot than i've ever had. on the way out to the park, it started to rain. i was fretting because some in this family came all the way from oklahoma, not a shoot we could easily reschedule. but they were all so much fun, willing to do anything, including jumping in the freezing cold stream all for the sake of the picture. thanks you guys for making my weekend! a few of my favorites...


on wednesday night a storm rolled in. and when i say rolled, i mean rolled right in. justin and i were playing at the neighbors when the thunder started faintly. the wind whipped up and the dark clouds starting coming in from the north west. the whole storm moved very fast. we got the kids inside and i ran back out with the camera to try to catch the feel before getting wet. the pictures do not do this justice. it was awesome!

this has been justin's story for the past couple weeks...

justin: "mom, you know how i'm growing out my hair this summer?"
mom: "yes...."
justin: "well, i want to grow it all the way down to my zit."
mom: "hmmm...your zit huh? and where is that?"
justin: " right here mom, i want to grow it all the way down to this zit. i want it to look just like ozzy's."

so, the zit is actually a big mole he has in the middle of his chest. and yes, he wants it to look like ozzy osborn's hair. i don't know what scares me more, the fact that he wants his hair down to the middle of his back or the fact that he knows who he is and what ozzy osborn looks like. just a sign of the times...

well, we tried. sara and i took the boys out to the park and tried to get some good pics of them in their overalls. but the stars were not lined up in our favor. the boys were sour pusses, could hardly get them to crack a smile, and when they did i wasn't ready. the park was completely muddy and torn up. poor aunt sara had to tromp around in the mud in her nice clothes and got all dirty. what a great aunt. here are a few of what i got. nothing i'm going to hang on the wall. and justin has been gone all weekend camping with a friend and his family, so i didn't get any new shots of him either. try, try again i guess.

ok, so jordan is officially wierd. here he is, sitting in the bottom of the oven drawer after pulling everything out of it. and now tonight i came home from work to find him all tucked into the toys. he looked so cute, like a big doll, staring out at me with his big blues. gotta love it.
