Brooke's new summer haircut!

Had lunch with Lala (aka Samantha... Brooke's Godmother) today. She commented that Brooke needed a haircut (she cuts hair). I knew that it was looking ratty so I bit the bullet and let her do it. She did the same cut last year around this time. It just looks healthier. Brooke loves it and can't stop looking in the mirror at herself. Here are a few pictures that I took this afternoon!

Meet Kaiden. He lives a couple of doors down. His mom asked me to take some pictures of him last year for a possible comp card... so yes, these are also out of the archive. He has the most AMAZING blue EYES!!!!!!!

My favorites are the first and the last. The last picture I added an urban action to it and boy did it make those blue eyes POP off the page!

Some pictures that I have pulled out of archive to showcase someone other than Brooke. This is Hannah D, Brooke's best girlfriend. I took these in January of this year when Hannah came over to play. She's a cute one!

A petti-skirt day.

Was inspired today by a friend (A.C.) to get out there and take more pictures of Brooke in her petti-skirt. She had fun twirling around in it! Thought the pink converse would be a fun, girly touch.

LOOK at those eyes! LOVE the way this turned out! Her eyes were quite clear! A perfect picture!

Bleached this one for a different look!

Loved her poses in this one above and below! She had fun!

One of my favorites. Thought the yellow from the house added a pop of color!

Brooke started T-ball yesterday. She was happy to see a few familiar faces on her team (Lauren L., Wesley, and Nicholas (one of her many boyfriends). Her team is the Indians. They did some practicing and will have a few more practices before they have their first game. First game? That should be quite comical!

Here Brooke is showing off that smile that melts my heart!

Getting a mini lesson on how to hold the bat from Coach Joe.

Swing! (She's got her eye on the ball!) That's my girl!

And off it goes! Brooke was great at hitting it off the T. She just needs some instruction on what to do after she hits the ball!

Daddy, where is that music coming from????

Brooke had her first T-ball game today (I'll get some pics posted soon). When we got home, the ice cream man was driving through our neighborhood. Her ears perked up and she said "Daddy, where is that music coming from?" Brooke had never seen this before... tribute that to me distracting her every time he came around. This time we couldn't get away with it any longer. She was quite amazed that you could get ice cream from a truck that stopped in front of your house. I picked the push up pop for her knowing that it would take her FOREVER to select a treat from the side of the truck plus I remember them being my favorite. (Though after a taste, not so much.) She ate about half of it because it started to melt and she's weird about stuff on her hands. She couldn't eat it fast enough. Not my greatest pictures, but thought the they turned out cute enough to go along with the story.

BEACH days...

Playing around with some pictures that I took of Brooke at the beach in Februaury and March. The weather has been AWESOME lately. Getting the beach time in now before the new one arrives and it gets way TOO hot!

Added a border blend to this one. Liked the way it turned out but wonder if it is too much.

Two BEAUTIFUL girls....

These two beauties are my best friend Samantha's future step daughters. They are so photogenic and full of life. These were taken in February this year at the beach.

Above is Siena. She LOVES to pose. :0) Check out her freckles. Aren't they cute?

Above is Angelina. Look closely and you might be able to see her two different colored eyes.

Bought some new "actions" the other day and thought that I would use them on some recent pictures that I took of Brooke of course.... her smile makes my heart melt!

My first post!!!!

Well, I decided that I should start a blog. Hopefully with this, my photography business idea will come to life next. Here, anyone can check it out for new photos of Brooke and if I am lucky... photos of other children that I was asked to take. Wish me luck!!!! Here is a picture that I took of Brooke and so many people have commented on it that I thought I would post this one first! Let me know what you think!
