Where have I been lately...well doing school work, sewing, taking pictures of people, cleaning (very little), kids, cooking, you get the picture! Sorry I have been slack on the blog the past week but I have lots of pictures to come. I have been doing tons of photography sessions and have been seeing an improvement in my pictures. I have two more sessions tomorrow and four next week! I have been slowly working on a website that I will post on here when I get it ready. Nothing to fancy just a place for you to view some of my pictures and get prices.
That's all for today....here's to trick-or-treating in the rain:)

At first it was nice. You know, it would rain and I wouldn't leave the house for days but now it is getting ridiculous and for some reason I think I can't leave the house when it rains. It started off as a nice leisure morning around my house. It was raining and cold outside so we stayed in. By the end of the day we all needed to be separated!!!! Not to mention that I started off having five outdoor photography sessions scheduled for this weekend. Then one cancelled, then another. So I still had three sessions....well two of those were today. You know, the day that showed no rain in the forecast! Yes...those had to be rescheduled. So I still have the one tomorrow and if that one doesn't happen I plan to lay in bed and cry tears to add to the lake which we call our front yard. I have an itch to take pictures and I am ready to take some pictures. So hopefully tomorrow will bring no rain and a little sunshine!

Today, October 15th, is pregnancy and infant loss remembrance day. It is extra special to me that this day falls just 11 short days after the birth and death of my son. I remember the wounds still being fresh but I felt it extremely important to go to a candle light ceremony in remembrance of this day just a short week after having my Cohen. I remember looking at all the mother's around me and seeing their broken hearts right there on their faces. Today we remember everyone who has ever had a loss.
I remember the excitement of becoming pregnant after many months of trying.
I remember the first ultrasound and how I felt like I could finally let me guard down and get excited.
I remember starting to feel like something wasn't right around 10 weeks in to the pregnancy.
I remember going constantly and the doctor calming my fears by finding a healthy heartbeat.
I remember thinking that if my son had a healthy heartbeat then he must be perfect.
I remember going for that 20 week ultrasound and the tech acting strange and printing out 25 pictures and giving me three.
I remember how my heart dropped when the phone rang minutes after getting home from the appointment....when you hear the nurse tell you that your Dr. would like to talk to you then you know this isn't good.
I remember when the specialist told me this was a lethal condition for my baby and choices had to be made.
I remember having peace the day I was in labor.
Most importantly, I remember holding my baby boy and taking my finger and rubbing every inch of his tiny body....I memorized his body at that point and I will never forget it.
Many people lose a baby at some point and if you never do, then you are part of the lucky few. Those of us who have lost a baby know that we think of that child often not just today but to have a day to recognize the losses means a lot.
Today I remember....do you?

This week the excited faces have it. I love this website b/c you get to see so many different pictures. I can't stop looking at it. Since I couldn't just pick one...I picked two:)
So excited about the ocean!
On another note, I have been crazy busy. I have school work, sewing work and LOTS of photography work. If every month was this busy with photography then I would do that and nothing else. I just love it. I have FIVE photo sessions this weekend alone and so far NINE for the whole month. I'm already booking up for November. Does it get any better than that???
My everyday readers...I posted twice today so scroll down for pumpkin patch pictures! I know, I'm on a roll!
The best picture I have ever gotten of my two kids together!
