WASL go away!!!

For the past 3 weeks our 3rd-5th graders have been taking the Washington Assessment for Student Learning....aka the WASL.  I've been the one giving the makeups and all I'm allowed to do while they're taking the test is sit there.  Doing nothing gets old very fast especially when you're used to being busy.  Luckily this is the last week!

On a positive note I just found out that I got my first Little Hero.  A while back I signed up to be part of  The Littlest Hero Project.  It's an organization that gives parents free portraits of their child who is suffering from any type of serious illness or life altering disability.   The family that I'm going to be working with seems really fun.  I can't wait to meet them!

I better get going...Kylen is throwing a fit because I won't let him play with my memory card reader.  Please tell me I will survive the toddler years!!!!! ;-)

And.....what's a post w/o a photo????'s one from today.  I just received my umbrella and stand to use my flash off camera.  I'm in love!  This is a snapshot I took today w/o any Photoshop work!!!  I can't wait to play some more!!!  Kylen wanted you to know that he has a belly button...and yes...he's in a flower pot..anything to contain a toddler...hehe.

Hello Sun!

We finally had a beautiful weekend in Washington.  Yesterday I had a photography meetup in Sumner.  It was so much fun meeting other photographers and trying out a new location.  Kylen wasn't feeling well so he stayed home with Dan.  Today I hung out w/ my sister to look for an outfit for her interview tomorrow.  *Say a prayer for her tomorrow...she's so nervous!*  Kylen was feeling a little bit we decided to go to the park to enjoy the sunshine.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!  Yesterday we went to get our Easter picture w/ the bunny.  Kylen threw a fit the whole hour we was terrible.  He loved the bunny though!  So much in fact....that he didn't want to leave when his turn was over.  So..he kicked and screamed the whole way back to the fun days w/ a toddler!

New Friends * [Fort Lewis Child & Family Photographer]

I met Megan about 2 years ago when I was pregnant w/ Kylen on Babycenter. We were part of a first time mommy-to-be group for babies born in Dec. Well, about a month ago I went to Babycenter again and found out that the group was still there! I was excited when Megan asked me to take pictures of her little guys. Little N and J were so much fun! Ky loved meeting a new friend. Here's a little sneak peak!

Playing around

The last couple of days have been BEAUTIFUL! Kylen had a blast playing at Grandma and PopPop's house yesterday. I've been trying to take some more snapshots of Kylen just having fun. I also practiced shooting some flowers wide open w/ my 50mm 1.4.'s a few from the last few days.

Goodbye Spring Break * [Tacoma Child Photographer - McChord AFB Maternity Photographer]

Today was my last day of Spring Break. Dan and I FINALLY got our taxes done! I feel so much better knowing that's done and over with for the year! I had the pleasure of meeting Miss B. this morning. This 3 month old cutie was sooooooo adorable! Here's a sneak peak for you!
I also had the opportunity to take some maternity photos for my friend Holly. What a beautiful mommy-to-be. She has the perfect little baby bump. Hopefully Mr. L. will make an appearance soon! *keeping fingers crossed*
