Bella Bambino’s Halloween Costume Party was held last Sunday. A room filled with mini monsters, fairy princesses and cowboys shooting indians is always a good time! Here are a few of the images from the party. ENJOY! Parents, call the studio if you would like to order any of the images that you see or to get the password to see ALL of the images on the proofing portion of my site. 573.651.4408
The evening of this shoot, I almost got run over by a car (I was lying in the road, but still!) We got a flat tire and had to change it on the side of the road, we lost the studio keys at least 8 times, forgot numerous accessories key to the shoot…….and met some deamonologists. Like I said, it was not an uneventful shoot! Regardless, I believe the results are breathtaking none the less. =)
People ask why I am often the only parent at an event without a camera of any sort. The reason is that if I have my camera with me….I work. I not only annoy my own children, I also tend to annoy everyone around me because every scene becomes a photoshoot. Our field trip to Beggs Farm was certainly no exception. The parents of Aslyn’s preschool class did luck out because I actually stopped in the pumkin patch and I conducted true mini shoots for every child in her class….I know….It is an illness. Here are a few of the images from the day. Ps- the random cuties with my children are their best friends Trystan and Erykah Nevaeh.
REMINDER!! KIDS HALLOWEEN COSTUME PARTY at Bella Bambino Studio. 10.25.09 from 4:30-5:30. Everyone is welcome- Fun snacks, a Costume Contest, a downtown mini parade and a lot of shooting of your children (with a camera) will take place. JOIN US!
For those blog watchers that did not already know, I have a little nephew on the way. Of course, there is a humerous story attatched to this. Angi (my sister) and her fiance met on a website called “PLENTY OF FISH.com”. So- we have always called Angi’s fiance FISH. In fact, I am not even sure what his real name is! So, when Angi found out that she was having a boy, I said…..Let’s name him FISCHER- after both his father and how they met! The name stuck and today was Angi’s maternity shoot. I had an idea…..and here it is! ENJOY! =) [ps- the two munchkins below of course are my kiddos]
Ok- as most of my faithful blog followers are already aware, I did not make it to LA this weekend. I had a super fun trip planned with my fabulous friend Sarah and last minute, we….um…ok, I….decided not to proceed with the trip. Most of you already know that I am a semi-weirdo when it comes to flying- and that is why I didn’t make it. That is all water under the bridge- because this weekend has been very fruitful, I must say. It started yesterday with a 2.5 hour drive to an amazing little boutique in Jonesboro, Arkansas [Steamroller Blues]. Yes, we actually drove 2.5 hours to go to one boutique- and 2.5 hours back….and YES, it was well worth it- because I think between Sarah and I, we actually purchased the entire boutique. What can I say?! We were replacing LA shopping with this experience- so it is completely condoned. To celebrate our new purchases I concocted this fabulous idea, that since I was technically not supposed to be here, I was going to pretend I didn’t have any real work to do and we would dress up in some of our new clothes and have a photoshoot! So, I don’t know what normal people do when they are off work on a Saturday, but apparently, this is what we do! =) I did realize that I am MUCH better at shooting when I am on the correct side of the camera, but poor Sarah was a trooper, and we did the best that we could. So- here are a few of our images from today. ENJOY!! [Ps- beyond the shopping trip on steroids and “just for fun” photoshoot, I also was able to witness my little man score 3 more touchdowns today- so this weekend ended up being just as fantastic as it would have been if I had been soaking up the sun in Cali. =)
Well….I am supposed to be in LA right now, but clearly sometimes your life just has a different idea about where you should spend your weekend! Coleson dove to tackle someone in football and fell on his right shoulder. He proceeded to cry…..BIG deal for Coleson….especially on the football field. I thought he had just bruised a muscle so I just brought him home and put him to bed. In the morning, we ended up in the ER. We will find out today whether it is actually broken, but the doctors think that it is ok. Regardless, I missed my flight to LA!! For any of you who know me and my illogical fear of flying, if anything goes out of whack from the original plan….it’s over! That teamed with the severe storm front covering middle-america…..there was just NO chance of me getting on a plane! Anyway, the point of this story is that because I did not go to LA, I was able to get my little lady dressed for her MAD SCIENTIST DAY at school today! How cute is my child?? Seriously! =) Have a great day everyone.
Sometimes….even though I have 800 other shoots to edit first, when I upload images from the day, I can’t help but to edit just one! I couldn’t pass this one up. ENJOY!! I can’t wait to edit the rest of this shoot!!
I have two children, as most of you know. However, Aslyn, my four year old daughter receives most of the “blog love”. This is mainly because she is actually drawn to the camera. My little man, Coleson, age 6- is….hmmmm….repelled from the camera, I would say! So- he is not often featured on my blog, because I only force him to model for me on special occasions….. I only believe in torturing children when it is completely necessary. =) Coleson is different then Aslyn. He is less talkative, less outgoing, less of a performer. He is more serious and internalizes way more. But… he is highly intelligent…..and he is an extraordinary athlete. I do understand that most parents like to brag about their children, and I must say that I don’t mind it myself! But, Coleson is actually a stand-out in any sport in which he participates. At age 4 he actually won the STATE CHAMPIONSHIP in wrestling! He used to battle 7 year olds – at age 4 – and triumph. It was pretty astonishing! When he is on the field or “sports stage” he generally just …..shines. This last year, Coleson participated in Karate, Jujitsu, Wrestling, T-ball, and Football. His first football game of the season was yesterday. He scored 3 touchdowns and pulled 5 flags. He was amazing. [ps- I am one of Coleson's football coaches...on my first day, they told me I couldn't wear stilettos on the field....what do they know!?] So finalizing Coleson’s blog love- here is an image from yesterday!
