Granted, it's not exactly Friday just yet, but the second I saw this photo up on the I Heart Faces' Flickr, I knew it was just one I had to fix!! This photo screamed that it needed a nice mood and coloring.
Here's what I came up with!

I know it's been forever since I last posted, let alone do a Fix-it Friday! Between finishing up the last of the year's weddings, and the baby sucking every last ounce of energy I got, you can probably understand why I've been away!
Either way, energy is here enough for me to post this Fix-it Friday post!
Isn't this photo just the cutest! I can't wait to go out this weekend and go to the pumpkin patch with my son!

Pretty much all I did was brighten the photo by adjusting curves and adding alittle contrast. I then warmed the photo, fixed the discoloring in her face, and threw a texture over it.. Voila!
Be sure to check out the other edits over at the I Heart Faces website!

Since I have a long while before I know if I will be harvesting a little boy or girl, I have been trying to get some ideas on what kind of nursery "themes" I would like to have. So many wonderful ideas out there and I am so excited to break away from the ordinary.
In my search, I came across these photos and it hit me.
I would LOVE to something like this.
Look at how adorable!!
That was my inspiration for this post.
For those who know me, they know that I have a huge love affair with trees. I try to incorporate trees into any photoshoot I can, and what is cuter than a tree theme in a nursery? Bluebirds ofcourse!
Check out these sweet goodies I found!
2. Brooke Nursery Bedding, from Pottery Barn Kids
My imagination is just stirring with ideas right now! I can't tell if this is a Gender Neutral kind of theme or more for the boys but either way, I am in love with it all!
Stay tuned for a different themed nursery inspiration I'm working to put together!

Today I had my first ultrasound for the little one! I could not get over how cute s/he looked even as such a tiny blob! And hearing that heartbeat and seeing it flutter on the screen was priceless. It's running a tad behind schedule and my due date has been adjusted accordingly, we are now due April 11th!
Here's baby's first photos!
Grow baby, grow!

Over at I ♥ Faces they're having a beach photo challenge, and how appropriate is it that had a beach session with my Cutest Kid Contest winner for Lauren Alexis Photography!
Here's my entry!
Isn't she just a doll! No wonder she won!

Today we went strawberry picking for the first time.
We walked into a field that went on forever
Filled with nothing but juicy, red, So-perfect-they-look-fake strawberries, all ripe for the pickin'.
We spent time with our little friend Landon
who had his eyes on the buckets of strawberries the entire time!
We made sure they were good.
Again. And again. And again.
We would yell in excitement to each other whenever we found a perfect strawberry, and promptly stick it in our bucket.
Or our mouth.
He was so proud of his beautiful and wonderful and perfect fruits.
I was so proud of his colorful vocabulary.
And on this day a new tradition was born for us.
And when summer is here, and we will always remember
Strawberry fields, forever.

This week's photo challenge of the week is Play at I ♥ Faces
I couldn't help but think of this photo of Elliott playing in the rain!

Since the business in my life is slowing down for the most part, I decided to complete I ♥ Faces Fix-it Friday challenge! Look at these sweet baby feet!! I love it!
Wednesday, June 2, 2010
I am participating in "Barefoot Week" at I ♥ Faces which let's you focus on anything feet or shoe related and helps raise awareness for Soles 4 Souls at the same time!
Elliott's feet is one thing I can definately not get enough of.
And after everything he's been though, his feet are what makes him strong.

These rainy days have definately got me down. Thankfully I've been so busy that the rain has forced me inside to finish work so I didn't mind too much, but how I secretly yearned for the sun's warmth.
After today's storm, I HAD it.
I was going to do something about it, take advantage.
I have absolutely been dying to do rain photos since Elliott learned to walk.
Everytime a rain storm would pass, I would sigh and go about my business because it just didn't seem to be the time yet. These photos weren't yet ready to be taken.
