Good morning world wide web!  I hope everyone had a great weekend and is looking forward to the week ahead.  I have been doing a lot of thinking lately, and I have come to realize that I am so involved in work, work, work – that somehow, I need to make photography and blogging a little more personal.  For one, it keeps me remembering the week that has past, makes me really “KNOW” the highlights, low points and just all arond be thankful.  I find that days pass by so fast now, that I don’t ever really just stop and smell the roses (so-to-say).  So, every Monday, I’m going to ramble, rant, rave – just babble about my week prior.  LOL!  Some of you I’m sure will bored out of your mind and others might be going through the same hectic crazyness and just want to see that others (me) share in your insane, passing-by-too-quickly lives!

So, to start – it’s been a fabulous year so far!  We got a Great Dane puppy (our 3rd), and he is definitely MY dog.  Follows me around everywhere and is such a good dog!  Aside from pooping in the house (3 days in a row free of poop so far), he is really great!  And for a dane, he’s quite the protector!  I adore him to pieces!

Also, I had all good intentions of having my new website up and running by now (and my new blog), but it’s been a little crazy these past couple months and working two full-time jobs – I just havn’t found the time!  Yes – TWO full-time jobs.  For some who don’t know, I’m a paramedic full time in Haldimand County – and for you blog followers, I’m a full-time photographer too LOL!  Both “jobs” I love!  Paramedic was always my passion until photography came into the picture.  Now being a paramedic is just my job – and photography is my passion.  I love it SO MUCH!!!  The thought of quitting being a medic is something that has crossed my mind many many times.  But I just can’t let it go and hey, as I look at it – your babies are in good hands 🙂

Another aspect of my life that I love is that my in-laws live upstairs in their own apartment which is a part of our house.  It’s funny seeing reactions when I tell people I live with my in laws, but truely – I love it and would not have it any other way!  They are fabulous.  You ever have a friend that you don’t speak to for months, but then you pick up the phone and it’s as if they were never away from your life?  Yet if they moved away- something terrible would come over you and it would be like this huge void is missing?  That’s how I feel about my inlaws upstairs.  I love them being here and if they were to move – I would feel so sad 😦  It’s nice when I get up in the morning, sit at my computer or get ready for a session and I get a text on my phone “coffee is ready”!  YES YES YES!!! Just when I feel like a fresh cup of coffee – voila!  Plus, our kids are here and when we work, they always have someone home with them – and of course now our guard dog 😉

Also just a note about Tonia’s Tuesday Treats which have been a great success…I’m going to change it to a monthly thing instead of every week.  I think that will be better – and more anticipation too 🙂  Thanks everyone for participating in the contests – it’s been so fun!!! I love it!

Oh – how was everyone’s weekend?  I spent the entire day yesterday cleaning.  Doing laundry, cleaning the kitchen and threatening my family that if there was evey ONE disk on the counter when I woke up this morning there would be serious trouble~!  More like “I’m going to SNaP”…and it was still clean when I got up! YAY!

Well, that’s all for now and since I will never be in the postition to have my own newborn again, I leave you with a picture of me and my best friends newest addition Noel.  I literally held this baby for FOUR hours ha!  This is what I want to do to all  the sweet, adorable newborns that come into the studio!  If I didn’t think it would totally creep people out – I would smother your babies in hugs and kisses and cuddles lol!

Happy Monday Everyone!

The winner of the Hamilton Spectator Baby Basket – happens to be the grandma of this little man who I have photographed before! What are the chances!? So happy I got to work with him again…and OH THOSE CHEEKS!! I could just eat him up!

He was all smiles at the beginning of our session…

…but when they are tired of getting dressed and changed and moved and over stimulated…what do you do to bring on the smiles?…bring  in a great big 4-month-old puppy!

One more for mom 🙂

It was a treat to have miss Avali back in the studio for her holiday mini session.  I didn’t have a santa suite, so mom and dad brought one so that dad could play santa and it was PRICELESS!!!!  Here is the happy Avali…

Here is Avali’s first time seeing Santa (amazing!)…but wait for it…

lol…and here is the not-impressed Avali who would probably like to disappear at this exact moment of the picture…

Maybe next year she will love him?  Too cute.  Sorry Avali for putting you through that (she felt much better once dad removed his beard)…lol

In June, I had a photography course here, and all the photographers got to meet baby Cody.  He was so sweet and such a good sleeper at our session …and it was so nice to see him again!  He looks just like he did then (maybe a little bigger) 🙂
