Thanks to all who voted for which picture I should submit... it was pretty close, but #2 took the lead spot with 10 votes. Fortunately for me, each picture received a few votes... and it was really interesting to see which ones people preferred - and why!!

So, I'm emailing my submission now... will keep you posted (if I win... which I should... right?!).

The Best Of March '09 - Help me Choose!!

Every month, I submit my favorite photo for a contest held among the Bella Baby photographers. And each month, I am neither the first nor second place winner. In light of that fact, and now that we no longer have a monthly theme, I am having a heck of a time picking my potential winner... so I'm asking for help.

I have to submit my photo by midnight tomorrow, March 31. So, look through the pictures below and either email me or comment below... which would YOU submit?!

Winter Returns... and {Mr. B}

Today I am working... a rare Sunday, a favor to someone who has covered a shift for me here & there (not to mention, has helped out with childcare for the last couple of months). I had no problem taking the shift...except that last night, we got 4" of snow!! I left my house 30 minutes earlier than normal and good thing I did... it took me longer than usual to get here, and I had to detour... thanks to this little mess...

In the end, it was worth it though. I had feared the worst... I'd drive all the way here and have no babies to photograph. Instead, I've photographed the cutest little bundle of joy and I'm waiting on another, and a set of twins.

So, while I wait...check out {Mr. B}. Mom & Dad were concerned he might not cooperate. But thanks to my magic basket, we did a little better than okay with his pictures.

Something different...

Sure, I love photographing babies, and kids, and families... but with my deep affection towards sports and athletes, action photography is a natural choice. I'd like to improve my skills and how better than to practice? So, when my brother-in-law asked that I photograph him at a recent ice hockey game, I jumped at the chance. I apologize, Jay, that I'm just *now* editing these and posting them...
