Meet Tyler!

Oh, I'm so grateful that I get to do this!  Even better, this little guy belongs to my friend which means, I totally get to snuggle him and watch him grow!  

Isn't he handsome?

Happy Halloween!

Generally speaking, I don't dig the zombie trend.  But this is adorable.

Happy Halloween.

Baby Shower

My very good friend is having her third boy and I had the honor of helping with her shower.  

Here are some highlights.

 She's soooo pretty and only looks like she's 6 months along even though she is full term!

We had a great time. I hope my friend and her baby boy felt our love for them!

My Kiddies...

Picture day in our family is a dreaded event.  It's really the one day that I openly admit to bribing my children.  Given that we only do this a couple times a year, I'm convinced that it isn't doing too much damage.  If I can get these results every year, then I will continue using this strategy.  

I'd like to publicly thank my husband for being my assistant on this shoot.  
I couldn't have done it without him.
(gonna crop shoes out later, I think)

My favorite:

Love it when you get the feeling that you totally nailed a shot.  That's how I felt after this one but it's probably cuz these are my babes and I'm totally biased.

Fair Warning...

If I babysit for you, I might just shoot your baby.  You've been warned.

If you live near LA, you have to check out the California Science Center!  We had a great time, minus the incident of my son walking off and his mommy freaking out a bit.  Otherwise, great day!  
Here are some of the adventures awaiting you: 
IMAX movies
Touch pool and Aquarium
Lots of hands on play!

My Boy's Superhero Party!

Superheroes was the requested theme for my son's fifth birthday.  I mentioned that in this post.
Here's how it turned out:

The invitations:

 Instead of goodie bags, each guest took home a cape and mask.  I made the masks from elastic and felt.  My uber-helpful friend made all TWELVE capes.  

 I made the banner from comic books and double wide binding. (and by 'I,' I mean I had help again).
 We had cake and Kryptonite Cupcakes for dessert and lots of healthy options for lunch including Wonder Dogs!

 Printables available for purchase at One Charming Party.

We put on the invitations to come as your favorite Superhero.  Isn't she adorable?

I made a skyline from a table cloth, wrapping paper, construction paper and spray adhesive.  The day of the party, I taped bad guys (Magneto, Doc Oc, Catwoman, etc.) to the city and we played "Put the Bad Guy In Jail."  Just a spoof on Pin the Tail On the Donkey.

 We opened presents.

 And modeled presents.

Then we had dessert.

The kids loved the Kryptonite Cupcakes.

Here's my little girl in her brother's costume.  It was too big on him and gigantic on her.
