Meet Amanda & Baby Myles.  I had a blast photographing this little one and his Mommy.  Myles was so happy the entire photo shoot.  He loved smiling and dancing for the camera.

F is for....

Field Trip
What a fun day!! I am so thankful that we got to get out of the school while our 3rd and 4th graders took TAKS.  Unfortunately, tomorrow won't be as fun for me, because I have to administer the TAKS test to a small group of students.

On Friday one of my students was recognized for getting 100 AR points.  She is the first Kindergarten student at my school to ever do this.  She had to read over 200 books to reach this goal.

As her reward from her parents, she chose to go to the spa and get a "pedicare".
They even treated me to one too!!
After our "pedicare" we took a spin through Barnes and noble and then ate some lunch at Cristina's. 

What a treat!!

the fants

Meet The Fants. Michael and Kristin are some of our sweet friends from church. It was so fun do my first family photo shoot with them!! Thanks for letting me photograph your beautiful family!! Bryson was such a trooper. He did so great! Love you guys!

i strongly dislike flickr right now

I started using Flickr back in February after my computer crashed. I started using Flickr because I wanted to have my pictures on an external hard drive and somewhere on the web to make sure I never lost them. I also started using it because it was the only way I could figure out how to get bigger pictures on my blog.

Well, recently I have noticed that some of my pictures from old posts have disappeared. Last night I posted some pictures of Carson in the bluebonnets, and this morning all but two were gone. This afternoon I posted some pictures of a recent photo shoot, and just a few minutes later all but two were gone. What is going on? Where are my pictures going??

I'm just about ready to give up on Flickr. It has not been a very user friendly site. do you have a photo storage website that you love? Please tell.

Do you know of an easier way to get bigger pictures on your blog? Now that I'm getting into photography I really want to be able to have big pictures on my blog. I would prefer to not use an outside source like Flickr or Photobucket. I like to be able to click on the image and make it larger rather than it taking you to the Flickr or Photobucket website.

Can anybody help me out??

My Mom, Ashley and I took Carson to the beautiful field of bluebonnets in our neighborhood today. I have been itching to take some bluebonnet pictures since they bloomed a few weeks ago. I thought my sweet nephew, Carson, would be the perfect subject to shoot!!

He wasn't too excited about it at first......
....but he eventually warmed up and
I think we had a pretty successful bluebonnet photo shoot.
