Cole 6 months | An adorable little guy

Just last week went to visit my good friends at their home to shoot Cole’s 6 month session.  I can’t believe this little nugget is getting so big!  We had lots of fun and he did a great job sitting up for us.  I think shooting 6 month olds is a new fave of mine.  You don’t have to stress about them sleeping (like with newborn sessions) and they aren’t at the point where they are walking, so you don’t have to chase them around!

We had fun changing his outfit!  I love the little boys in jeans and shirtless, it is timeless and super cute to show off all the rolls!

Sometimes you need to hangout with your bears!  I ransacked Prue’s collection of bears and brought them up.  Some of you will recognize Schlepp (this was a fun idea, but he kept sliding down so it was something we only shot a few images of)

I love his eyes in this image!  Such a sweet look from a sweet little boy :)

I usually keep shooting when babies start crying, it’s good to document all the emotions they have.  (obviously if they are crying because they are nervous because they don’t know me, that is a different story).  I think Cole was mad that he was on his stomach, he doesn’t really like tummy time.

Can you even handle the cuteness of the hat! He loves the driving toy on the right, at one point I was shooting while also holding this toy in my arm so I could make noises to get his attention!  I was pretty proud of my multi-tasking abilities!

A little fun time with mom!

Thanks for being a great model Coley!

Wedding Wednesday Etsy Finds: Adorable Shoe Clips from FINKShop

Okay, so I’m a little late today with the post.  I have a good excuse though.  We got another killer snow storm today so Prue didn’t go to daycare like she usually does on Wednesdays.  We ran to the store around 7pm (cause we needed diapers) and that is when I realized I didn’t do a Wedding Wednesday Etsy Find today.

A quick search of Etsy’s wedding category and I found FINKShop.  There isn’t too much info on her profile page, what I do know is she is from South Korea and “I love to make beautiful accessories with beads and fabric”

The shoe clips are what really caught my eye.  It’s a huge bridal trend to have really cute shoes, whether that means they are a bright & fun color or just really fun & unique.  I think these clips could give you the look of some of the higher end shoes at a fraction of the price.

These chiffon ones are really light and airy and would be great with any wedding dress.

If you are looking for ones that have a bit more impact check out these green wool felt ones.  I think I want these just to have.

Then these super cute rhinestone bows! AYKM!  Love them, especially the bow on the side of the shoe.

She also has super cute sashes & hairbands.  You could get a sash that matches the bow shoe clips!  Take the time to head over to her FINKShop and see cute items she offers.

Prue 52 Weeks 1-4 | Personal Portraits

We have been taking photos of Prue everyday for the past 2 years.  This is January was the start of the 3rd year we will have a photo of Prue everyday.  Drew is the one who is in charge of this project.  I occasionally help out and take the photos, but it is mostly Drew.  He is the one that selects the photo for the day and edits most of them.

You can find past years photos on Drew & Prue’s flickr accounts.  The first year we create a calendar using all of the images (each month was the images from the past year).  You can see those here.

This year I created 2 videos using animoto, they were posted on the blog.  You can find them here.

Drew has decided to upload the photos to his flickr account as a week’s worth of images.  He usually uploads them on Sundays (I think that is the correct date, though I don’t know for sure).  He mentioned to me that it would be cool to pick one fave image each week and blog it.  Here are the images from the first 4 weeks.
