one more time....

a bunch of you emailed me asking when I would run the special again because ya missed, this special is for you. It's the last time I'll probably do it so if you want them or you're hoping to get CS for Christmas, get them now and hold onto them. =)

Until noon today, 25% off of my actions....bring them to $7.50. And as usual, DO NOT click on the BUY IT NOW button on the actions site, just paypal me directly at
Also, a couple of you asked about PSE actions....they are still on the back's my busiest time of the year so I haven't had time to work with them yet. Stay tuned though......
Alrighty, don't forget, this may be the last time I run the special so don't delay because once it hits noon in Texas, that's it. =)

an action special until noon today!

I'm feeling giving today! =) Until noon...Texas time (is that standard time), I'm taking 25% off of my actions so instead of paying $10.00, you pay $7.50. You can't beat 4 actions for that price so hurry! =)

Make sure that you DO NOT use the Buy Now button on my actions site because it will charge you $10.00. Instead just paypal your payment of $7.50 to and I will email them to you ASAP. =)

long time no bloggin'

Sorry for the week almost over and me not posting.....just doing the usual stuff. I wanted to post something for all my clients and friends to let you all know that my email has now changed. So from now on, you all can reach me at I can still see my msn emails, I just can't respond to them so it's been very time comsuming getting them switched over and answered. If I haven't gotten to you yet, I promise I will. =) remember this one:

It was from one of my first sessions I ever did and still one of my favs. =) Well, I don't think I've shared this one with you guys:

Look at that gorgeous pout....she'll be able to put that to good use and get anything she wants. I pity her future boyfriend! LOL!!

Anywho....Mom is giving herself an early Christmas present and she's ordering these 2 as 20x24 gallery wrapped canvases for her house....I'm so excited for her because I know she will LOVE them. Ha...I may not give them to her after I see them....I can't get enough of those gallery wraps. =)

I hope you like what you see Jeni and Dave....just a couple from the session. =)

ok....the third bad thing just happened....

MSN has decided to switch my email over to the new beta version and I can't get any of my messages....I can see them but I can't read them, reply to them or even send new ones. AAARRGGHHHH!

So bare with me if you can....I was able to contact them to tell them that I was unhappy about the sudden change (and switching it without asking me), so hopefully I can get back to my old version.....have I said I don't like change? Changes scare me. =)

back to her sassy little self....

can you tell? LOL!!

right before the storm....

of bad voo-doo. =)

Thank you all for the well-wishes....we are feeling much, much better. Gracie went back to school and today, I'm feeling better...just weak and tired. I think I've gotten caught up on my emails.....I wittled them down from 70+ to 19. I left to run errands for a couple of hours and came home to 11 more! LOL!! You just have to laugh about that. =) Now, I need to get back to proofing because I know there are some mommies out there than want to see their sessions. =)

So, here's after the soccer game...we went to Sonic to have ice cream and right then I should have known something wasn't right when she didn't eat her ice cream....that's just unheard off. She did get sick before this shot...but then she was acting fine and actually dancing for everyone in their cars to see. =) But look how red she was......poor baby! =(

And then the flood gates opened once we got home....bless her heart, she didn't get sick in the car. BTW, why is it that mom's have the instinct nature to want to catch the puke whereas the dad's get as far away from it like it's the plague? LOL!!

And a couple of Sam...those eyes just do it to me everytime. I'm going to be that aunt that will get her anything she wants.

Notice the no eye contact...before she was looking at me and smiling and then wham, she sees the camera and acts like I don't exsist.

And a couple from the's her first season to play...she's the newbie but the girls are sooo sweet and she really likes the coaches. I just hope she doesn't put puking her insides up and playing soccer together...we'll see this weekend.

bad things happen in 3's

I'm waiting for the third....
I just wanted to let everyone know that has emailed me...I will get back to you all. The last couple of days has been crazy here....Gracie got dehydrated after her soccer game on Saturday and had to go to the ER to get an IV of fluids back in her and then yesterday I was vomitting non-stop and had to go and find out I have an kidney infection....FUN!!
So, anyhow, I just wanted to let everyone know that has emailed me about sessions and such, that I will get back to you all starting tomorrow. I barely have energy to get out of the bed but I mustered up some to type this....and now I'm exhausted again. =)

2 newborns in 3 weeks....

I've been in business since Sept. of last year and didn't have a single newborn session...all kiddos and families and then WHAM....I get 2 in 3 weeks. How funny is that? LOL!!

Well, this beauty is a bit older than the last one but as cute as can be. We just waited until she fell asleep because Mama wanted the this shot so bad....and believe me, it was worth the of my favs. =)

Just an update on the sold and it's shipped. =) Thanks for all of you that inquired about it. =) Also, many of you have emailed me asking what my username is on's gracie*bug. I use to sell on there a long time ago but haven't lately...just a few pieces here and there.

Also, I know I've been tagged by a couple of you....I promise I will get to them too. =)

You all have a fantastic weekend!

"the famous coat"

Yep, I'm selling it and I'm sad to see it go. =( I was going to put it on ebay but then thought I might see if you girls would want it since many of you said you love it. =)

It's from Babygap and it's sized as a 4T. It would be great for fall and winter and think of all the photo ops too. =) It's in perfect condition...Gracie wore it maybe a handful of times only for pictures or special occasions. I'm asking $30.00 and that includes shipping. Email me at if you're interested. =)
ETA: Sale you girls are fast! I had 5 inquiries about it within 1 hour of posting it. LOL!! I gotta laugh...what we do for cute clothes for our kids, while we wear Target! LOL!!
