About Me

My photo
Our family consists of Paul (aka Daddy or Daddy-Doo). 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, Stinkerbutt and Sweet Pea). She's a very smart, talkative, opinionated and loving 9 year old! Addison (aka Addi-Doo, Addi Bo Baddy and Turkey Butt). She's 5, spunky, energetic, snuggly, and full of so much sass! Finally, we've got Scarlett (Munchkin Butt, Bo, and The Cheese Monster)! She's 3 years old and enjoys playing by herself, sneaking cheese, and playing pretend with everyone!

They Grow So Fast...

Lilyanna will be starting school in a little less than 2 weeks!

Our biggest girl is going into kindergarten and she couldn't be any more excited.

I conned her into a mini photo shoot with her sisters via slurpee bribe and we headed out the door!

She's getting so big it's ridiculous.

I swear she's grown 3 inches in the last month!

She spent most of the 10 minutes we were taking pictures chanting "slurpee slurpee slurpee".

Hey, whatever works.

Her ham of a little sister (whom doesn't require bribery yet) shoved Lily to the side and demanded I let her say cheese.

So I took one and threw Lily back in!

This was supposed to be about her anyway!

What it looks like in between the screaming, pinching and hair pulling.

She really is a fantastic big sister when she wants to be.

The ONLY picture Scarlett looked at me for.

Would you please take a moment to look at Lily and Addison.

Seriously children?!

You couldn't pull out one decent smile while the babies looking at me?!

Who's training you two?!

Love you my big little girl!

Sweet Ignorance

One year ago today we were at our annual beach trip with a small group of friends.

I was completely unaware that this sweet little family...

Was in for one awesome change!

I had just started feeling a little sick but I assumed it was due to the MASSIVE amount of sugar and hotdogs I had consumed that weekend.

I figured it would go away with one day of being "back on track" with my food intake.

Boy was I wrong!

39 LOOOOOOONG weeks later our family welcomed a new little bundle that we lovingly refer to as 'Munchkin Butt'.

This year at our camping trip our small family wasn't so small anymore...

It was just right!

Pro Bribery.

Never will I ever tell you that I am better then bribing my children...

Picked these suckers up at a reception...

"Mommy will give them to you if you let me take a couple pictures...

WITH smiles."


Happy kids.

Smiling pictures.

Score 1 for the Harriot Mama!
