One not quite perfect and one that made me gasp . . .


Pixie reminded me (by posting Don’s terrific shot of Owen + friend) that today’s Tuesday. . . Crap Shoot Tuesday! For more info, check the fabulous Maile’s blog here.  I’ll tell you more about Maile in a few. Here’s my not quite perfect picture that I can’t delete:


The kids and Marley getting ready to cross the street and walk to the middle school one morning. It’s been too dark at 7:00 lately, so instead of walking the kids to school, I’ve been driving them.  I love this pic ’cause she’s blurry and it’s fuzzy (iPhone pic), and ’cause it’s a perfect snapshot of what we do in the mornings.

And this. This is a perfect shot from our recent family portrait session with Maile. She is fantastic. Fabulous. All that *and* a bag of chips. . . just check out her photography site and portfolio!  She took the picture that’s in my sidebar up there, and a bunch more. If you’d like to see the rest, post or email me that you’d like the password and I’ll email it to you. And, if you’re in the need of a photographer who’ll rock your world and make your family super comfortable while doing it, contact her. You won’t be disappointed!


I love this picture!  I’ve alluded to changes that have gone on the past month or so, and wanted to commemorate them somehow. I’m working from home now, and this is pretty much how I spend my days. Me, between two goofy kids, on the computer. Maile, thank you a million times over. I’ll stop gushing now so you won’t have to look into a restraining order!

    I LOVE this picture!!!!!!!!!!

    It’s so real and warm and so much better than those ones that are all staged that they always show on 20/20 after somebody goes to prison!! 🙂

    I’m coveting your mac, BTW.

    LOVE the shot with the three of you!! Seriously LOL at that FACE!!!!

    Girl, you know I want to see the rest of those shots! I’ve been stalking to see if any would be posted. 😉

    i love that photo of the kids in the morning too. I often think that years from now, the photos we’ll end up looking at most are the ones that just told it like it was. That’s the most interesting part of life, isn’t it?

    Also, THANK YOU for this amazing post! You totally made my day! I’m so happy you guys liked them. And you’re family was equally as fun to work with!
    p.s. you are super talented too! I love your site and all your amazing creations! 🙂

    That picture is hilarious, but it also shows just how comfortable the kids must have been with your photographer.

    Love it!

    Jenn, what a fabulous picture of you and the kids. Enjoy them girl, they grow way too fast. I don’t regret for one minute being a stay-at-home-mom, my boys are my life! You look so happy here, right down to your cute red toenails, I love it Jenn!

    Your pictures are amazing! I love that they are unposed and natural. Your sidebar/avatar pic is gorgeous.

    Jen – your photos are incredible! Your new avatar is gorgeous!!!! The shot of you and your children (who’s expressions are priceless!), speaks volumes!!!! 😉

    I wanna see more pics! Love your new avatar. Noticed it just the other day. I’m a little slow and I’ve been out of the loop for the past few months. So, you’re now working from home? WOW! Big change for you and I bet you’re saving tons on gas.

    We really need to have lunch and catch up!

    Ok, I need that password to see all your gorgeous photos — the ones you’ve shown are priceless! Love that big red sofa in the field!
