Ok, so this has nothing to do with photography... but thought I would share! I'm back to trapezing after a much too long break and this was the first time I did a catch! I am so ready to run off and join the circus for sure! LOL! If you are in FL and want to try it out, go to their website. Tell them "Laurita" sent you!

More of Mr. M | Tampa Children's Photographer

I had an idea of a cute little title for this post, but the mom of this beautiful babe put a squash on it! LOL! Anyway... you may remember when Mr. M was in the belly, then we he came into this world, and then at just 3 months ago. Look at him now! I could just eat him up!

Here is my {WE ARE FAMILY} photo entry!

This is what they asked for this week:

"Let's celebrate families this week!

It doesn't matter to us at all if your photo represents a "traditional" family or a "non-traditional" family. We are looking for photos that show off a cool way to capture a family fun, creative, unique and enter the most awesome photo you can! We would also like each photo entry to have at least one (1) adult in it and even possibly a wide variety of ages represented."

This, at the moment, is my fun, unique family photo! Enjoy! And if you want to see more family photos, click here!

This weeks theme on I heart faces is "best face photo" and has to have been taken in Dec or Jan. I took this Dec 30 and it has to be my ffaavvoorriittee photo of my daughter at the moment! Last year I took some similar shots of her on Dec 31 and I am going to try and take a shot each year at the same time. Thought it would fun to look back on. Enjoy! Thanks for looking!

Here's what your wallet sized photo or card can look like!

This is one of 3 that I am doing for Brooke for Valentine's Day. I'll just tape a lollipop on the back and she can hand them out to her classmates. So... if this looks like something you would like to do for your little one... book a time during my mini session on Jan. 31!
