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!

Another Day, Another Memory

My littles birthday was last weekend!

I've been posting about it over the last week and a half with photos.

This last birthday post will be a video.

Cause I want to.

The Little Quotes.

Over the last year Scarlett has learned some very important things.

Like how to say MaMa and DaDa.

Num Num when she wants food.

Butt or Poo when she's fouled herself.

Hello or Bye Bye which are strictly used only when drooling on or hiding Mommy's cell phone.


Used when every other word has been used and deemed useless in getting our attention.

She's also learned to answer to Scarlett, Scarlett Bo Tarlett, Munchkin Butt, Little, and No.

She's joined the family dance parties.

She can climb stairs (much to Mommy's dismay and disapproval).

She feeds herself and gets disgusting on a daily basis.

Her version of snuggling is laying on top of you and wiggling mercilessly.

She's mastered the art of the fit as chronicled here, here, and here.

She's learned that she has to keep a death grip at all times on things she doesn't want stolen.

The most important thing she's learned over the last year though, is of course, to smile for Mommy's camera.

Lets keep our priorities straight people!

First Birthday: Part 1!

Even though I only had my camera for about 20 minutes yesterday I still ended up with a gazillion photos thanks to my bestest!

In other words...

Scarlett's birthday posts will be happening all week!

I put a ton of time into my last littles first birthday and wanted to make sure that I captured ALL of it.

So please enjoy some of the details, birthday cake, and present opening!

Also, for those that are curious of how many of the decoration ideas I got off of Pinterest...

All of them.

Lily and I had a blast looking up different themes and getting ready for the part together!

Happy First Scarlett!

She did it!

She survived one whole year!

Only to be loaded to capacity with cake, potato salad, hot dogs, pretzels and anything else she could steal off the plates of unsuspecting children/adults.

Happy Birthday my littlest little.

(More to come tomorrow, I'm too exhausted to think!)

On Her Last Day of 0.

My littlest baby turned 1 today.

It's a big milestone for her and it feels like an even bigger milestone for me.

Paul and I decided a long time ago that 3 kids was going to be it for us so Scarlett really us our last little.

It's bittersweet.

We're very excited to be out of the baby phase and have functioning human beings surrounding us, but we both loved the babies.

So here is to my last littles very last day of 0.

Taking portraits of 3 little girls is a challenge.

I've provided a good sample of the photos that didn't quite make the cut for this post.

Between the silly faces, eye contact issues, screaming, jumping, showing of teeth, and squeezing it's pretty much impossible.

I do love a good challenge!
