For the love of teddy bears and puppies

"Every puppy should have a boy." --Erma Bombeck

"Everything in life I share, except of course my teddy bear!" -Unknown

I could not resist the opportunity to shoot my littlest with the things he loves, his teddy (baby) and Chico (our puppy).  One of his only comforts in life besides his family is his little bear that he sleeps with every night and is constantly carrying around with him.  He insists that his bear says its own prayers at night and that it must get tucked in and kissed just like him.  Chico is his friend to get into trouble with.  They run around the house, chase each other, and also Chico has decided he is the best to try to steal little treats from.  Oh, the friendships of a teddy bear and a puppy, what could be any better in life for a 3 year old!

Early day boredom

My kids are out of school early on Wednesdays.  My daughter decides that she just wants to read, while my oldest plays at a friend's house.  I have a few hours before I need to start dinner, so I grab my camera and take a few pictures of the 3 still at home.  Of course I have a photo of my oldest giving me attitude, because like I said she wants to read and not play photoshoot with mom. :)

Fun in the Snow

“People rarely succeed unless they have fun in what they are doing.”

Dale Carnegie

I always tell people that I would love to shoot with them,  just go out and shoot for fun.  To be honest, out of my Istock friends, no one ever takes me up on the offer.  Except for now.  A friend of mine has gotten a camera, has been shooting and learning, and wanted to go out today.  It was a lot of fun.  It was not like setting up a shoot, but going out into nature and photographing what captured your eye.  I miss doing this, for I have not done it in a long time.  I am so glad that we went out today and shot.  I am hoping that it becomes a regular pass time for the both of us.

The Joys of My life

I see no other way to start off the new year, except by letting the world know how much my family means to me.  They are my everything, and I am grateful everyday to have them as part of my life.
