I have been debating for some time the direction I would like to go with my blog, my website and yes, even my business. Moving to a new province and having your clientele start at nil and a baby in your belly slowing you down will give you lots of time to think about that stuff!!

So please be patient with me and please stay tuned because there will be lots of changes going on in the next few months and lots of shoots to post when I go home to the big T.O. next week. But to start with, my blog is taking on a new colour scheme while I whittle away at my website and figure out exactly what I am trying to accomplish and figure out code for a dynamite blog!

One of the major changes though is I plan to focus ALOT more on children and newborns and less on weddings. I love shooting bridals and yes will definitely still do some! BUT!! my focus is on the little ones! Not only does it coincide with my schedule and my life (babies and nursing and staying home with them) but I have such an obsession with capturing those first precious moments and figuring out new and interesting ways to do it! And I just haven't been taking the time because weddings take so much of it! So I have been stocking up on baby items, children clothes and cute antique props and going broke too! (Don't tell Geoff) My fantastic mother in law has been knitting away for me and I have much more in my head that hopefully will make it to print sometime soon!!

Anyway...Im rambling but please stay tuned!!! And please enjoy this peak at baby Briggs. He is just so perfect! I will post more soon!

My Squish

This is my darling 2 year old Colton. We call him The Squish or Squishy Boy because of the adorable cheeks he has! He let mommy find some new locations and test out some shots on him and thank goodness because he is too cute to pass by! Not that I'm biased or anything.

His wonderful Aunty Amanda came to help and distract and entertain as listening to Mommy when 2 years old and her face is behind a camera is not a priority! Thanks for that Mand! He was definitely a trooper and I don't know where we went that carried the bug but the next day he was the most sick he has ever been. We have actually gone the full two years of his life without ever being sick to his tummy which I think is pretty darn good! But I guess it was also about time and I have been nursing my poor little squish back to health all week. He's getting there. My oh my-I love that guy!

This was actually one of the last pictures of the day and I'm so glad he always has smiles for me!

I was starting to get the glazed over stare here but who cares? He is gorgeous anyway!

I don't know how but for some reason this boy LOVES wearing hats. He loved this one so much he wore it all night at home too.

Kinda the what do you expect from me face. It's so great for me to have these photos that I can not only say I took but because he has the most amazing expressions that I can never get over.

My fave, fave, fave image of the day. Why? I don't know really but I think it has something to do with the slick hair!

Aunty Amanda had a tiny little plastic star that came out of a kinder suprise and it was just what he needed to sit still! And the best part! You can't see it in the photos. He just looks like he is sitting all proper!
