I've been bad ........

Sorry I have not done a post in what feels like forever! It's been a long week. As you know, Braxton had that double ear infection ... the Dr. gave us amoxicillian to treat it. He was on it for 10 days and did great! He never had a problem taking the medicine or anything! His ear infection symptoms cleared up almost over night!

Well, Sunday was the last day of his dose. We noticed he wasn't himself that day. Pretty lethargic and not really interested in eating. We took his temp, and sure enough he had a fever. Some infant Tylenol did the trick and brought it down. But Monday we were in for a rude awakening ... an awful rash all over his body!

The hard thing was, it looked different on different parts of his body! Here we go again with skin issues ... so the next day I took him to the Pediatrician and Dermatologist and what they think he has is a 3-fold rash going on! 1) possible allergic reaction to amoxicillian causing one part of the rash, 2) a viral exanthem rash and 3) another excema outbreak. Good lord. So, off to the pharmacy I went again!

The meds are helping some, but he's still pretty rashy and is off schedule (harder on Mommy than him cause I thought I JUST got that figured out!!). Any way, we have our friends, Pete and Julie (WHO FOR THE RECORD, BLAKE, I WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR SETTING UP!), coming into town from AZ to meet Brax! So we are looking forward to a great weekend with them and I'll have lots of pictures to post by Sunday!

Love to all!

MEET ... Odin (again!)

It is so hard for me to belive Odin is already TWO! I can't wait for the day to watch him and Brax running around playing together! Odin's Mommy is one of my best friends in life and I am so happy to have the chance to photograph Odin as he grows! I love their family so much!

MEET ... The Herrin Family (again!)

Here are the latest pics of the Herrin family! They are such good friends and it is so fun to see their family growing up in front of my camera! Aubrey is talking like crazy and Jack is walking here there and everywhere! I think Michelle was a little shocked at my choice of location, but she ended up really liking it :) It's always better when you SEE the pics after!!!

MEET ... The Balls (again!)

Here are the latest pictures of the Ball family! The kids are growig up SO fast. Hard to believe Connor is already ONE! And it was so cute because Sean told me that Jayden was crying yesterday because she wanted to see me!!! :) How sweet!!!

MEET ... Kyla!

This little cutie is Kyla! We had such a great shoot with her. For only about 3 months old she did great! I love her bright blue eyes! We did some of just her then some with Mom and Dad! Her parents are both goregous and they are just a beautiful family! I am so happy to have done pictures again for them!

The proud Mommy has to share just one more! I took this of Braxton with the most darling hat we got as a gift .... a new prop for other newborns to use as well!

MEET ... Chaz

This little guy is Braxton's first friend! He was born the day after Braxton :) He also happens to be the son of our friends Jenni and Adam! He was such a great baby and did so well for this photo shoot! Only peed once and barely fussed during a 3-hour shoot! We got so many great shots!!! Thanks, Chaz!

MEET ... Auddie and Nina (again!)

Here are some pics I took of Audrey and Nina! Some last minute fall pictures before all the colors are totally gone! We went to downtown Kennewick and shot around down there, then a field off of Clodfelter where sagebrush actually looked pretty :)

MEET ... The Sanders Family

This family was great! Great looking family, super nice and very easy going! They knew exactly what they were looking for which made my job a piece of cake! We got some really unique and cool pics (see the b&w with only jeans in color!!) and they were so happy! Love to work with families like this :)

MEET ...the Magician and his White Rabbit!

Well, Julianne has out done herself again! As you may recall, she makes her kids' Halloween costumes every year ... and every year they get more and more elaborate and fantastic! This year Bryce is a magician and Morgan is his White Rabbit. I don't think there could be two cuter kids! We took pics at a park today with all the beautiful leaves and they turned out soooo cute! Love you both! Auntie B!

MEET ... the Princesses :)

This was such a fun shoot! I have taken pictures of both of these girls a few times before and this time their mom's wanted pictures in their Halloween costumes! How adorable! They really looked like the princesses they were portraying! We got some cool shots in the corn stalks and in the mustard field! Good luck on Halloween girls; get lots of candy!! :)

MEET ... my new model!

OMG ... OMG ... OMG. This girl is STUNNING. I have taken her family's pictures before and this time it was allll about her! This chicky knows how to work a camera! She's my new practice model that I am going to take around to try out new locations, poses, lighting, etc. She was coming up with as many ideas as I was! It was great and we had so much fun!! Can't wait until next time ... my mind is already creating ideas :)

MEET ... the Janosky family (again)

I'm so glad we were able to make this shoot work! And check out the awesome colors at the Park! The kids did awesome and we got so many great fall shots! Last year we did their pics out on Rebecca's friends farm (you may recall from my blog post about a year back). This family is so fun and we had a great time!

Joelie in the Mustard Fields!

Had to get some of Miss Jo in the field too! I loved the purple against the green and yellow! She's at a great age where she takes direction for posing perfectly---not to mention she's a natural Hannah Montana :) You're a doll, Jo!

Abbey Mae in the Mustard Fields

Here are some of the pics I took for Abbey's 3rd birthday picture! We went to the mustard fields by their house and it was gorgeous! What a perfect day! I can't wait to use this location a couple more times before the yellow goes away! If have a shoot with me in the next week and are interested in switching to this location, let me know!
