About Me

My photo
Our family consists of Paul/Daddy. He loves his little girls, wife and family more than anything in the world. Velvet (aka MaMa Velvet or Mommy). I'm a photographer and very happy stay at home Mom who can't get enough time with my little ones! Lily (aka Monster or Princess). She's our 12 year old smart, talkative, beautiful young woman who is impressing us everyday! Addison (aka Doo or Addi). She's 8 (almost 9!) artistic, sensitive, lovely young lady who has a quick sense of humor! Scarlett or Bo for short! She's 7, sassy, outgoing, cute as a button and has a passion for a few very select food groups! Finally we have our littlest princess, who has blessed us with her presence until it's time to go home. She's almost 1 and the happiest little baby around! She loves clapping, snuggling, shaking her head no, and laughing at her sisters!

Every so often I go through all my old photos.  I love looking at old pictures of Lily and Addison.  As children they grow so quickly and sometimes you can forget just how small they really were.

I happened to be going through Addison's photos this morning and found photos that I had taken exactly one year ago today.

She was absolutely wonderful.

So tiny and new.

Man I love those cheeks!

The way she couldn't control her faces was absolutely, positively...


This day was extra special to me.  It was the first time I ever got a photograph of her smiling.

I remember freaking out and doing a happy dance.

It honestly made my week.

So, having been all nostalgic for the "good 'ol days" this morning I attempted the same shots.

This is the best of all my shots.  Oh what a year will change.

My baby girl is getting too big.

Water Park!

Paul and I packed the girls up today for some water park fun!

Much frolicking, splashing and dripping occured :)


Nom Nom Nom

Addison and I spent a lot of time outside yesterday with our neighbors enjoying the nice weather (Finally!).

She attempted playing in the pool, coloring with chalk, and blowing bubbles. 

I'm pretty sure the only thing she was successful at all day long though, was eating the majority of a big bowl of grapes.  Of course.

She was shoving them into her mouth one after another.  I seriously think she was under the impression grapes were going extinct and these were the last on earth.

She's such a messy eater!  Apparently those grapes were too juicy to contain!

The neighbor girl was even having issues!

Maybe if they hadn't shoved 18 in at one time...

Just... One... More!


When Riayn stopped Addison knew she had to step in and help.

When Riayn literally couldn't eat ANY more Addison moved onto me.

No means NO Addison!

She's a forceful little girl.

I won't even get started on the waterballoon issues!

Hope you enjoyed the summer weather :)
