My big boy, Kole

November 20, 2008

Well, most of you know, Kole HATES the camera.  WILL NOT LOOK in my direction if I am holding anything camera related!  But the other day, he was in time out and had NO CHOICE but to sit in one spot…And I happened to have my camera…Made him laugh…And I actually caught a few really cute pictures!  Yay!  Now I have an idea…Get him all dressed up, take him to a great spot and tell him he’s in time-out and can’t move!  Then I’ll make him laugh and BOOM…I’ll finally get some good pictures of him!  🙂  I’ll let you know if it works!  Until then, here are a few of my very handsome, very sweaty big boy, Kole!



The next one is him ‘smiling!’  🙂  Love it!



Stiggins Family

November 11, 2008

Last night, Jeff, Amber and Abby drove to me to take family pictures.  After an hour drive, I think they were over pictures before we even started!  We met at one park, but there were one MILLION people around, so we drove to another spot I had heard about.  We loved a little ‘area’ we found, but the lighting wasn’t quite right.  So we hopped from one spot to another…Avoiding shadows from the trees on faces.  We finally found a few spots, but Miss Abby wanted NOTHING to do with the camera or her mommy and daddy holding her.  She was only interested in the rocks, sticks and anything else on the ground…Which never involved her looking in my direction.  I even tried singing!!!  (Sorry Amber and Jeff!)  And she wasn’t impressed with my skills!  🙂  And to top it off, we lost Jeff’s glasses.  😦 

If Amber’s anything like me, I usually leave a session (with my own boys who HATE the camera) thinking, ‘If we just get one good one…I’ll be happy.’ 

So here you go, Amber…
