Our First Vacay - Part Two

Posted by Robin . on Friday, March 25, 2011, In : Photography 
When we got to San Antonio, we snagged a hotel within walking distance of the Riverwalk and headed on down to scope things out.

After walking

and walking

and walking

and, you guessed it, walking some more....

We grabbed a bite to eat, found an awesome little shop where I eventually ended up buying dresses for Snappy and myself and hit up Ripley's and the wax museum.

Snappy was not happy about those last two stops.

She was totally freaked out. Except for when 0007 took her through this tunnel thin...

Snow, Set-Ups and Snapshots

Posted by Robin . on Thursday, February 3, 2011, In : Photography 
My blogging seems to have fallen low on my to-do list lately. I'm certainly busy but, it's not very exciting stuff. Not boring...just...mundane. It's cleaning and working and rearing unruly children and fretting over the weather. None of which make for exciting blog entries. I hate that I've pawned off so many photo posts as real blog posts but, I'm hoping y'all are enjoying the pics.

We're supposed to have snow here tonight and tomorrow. In South Texas. It hasn't snowed here since TRex's fir...

May your days be merry and bright!

Are you beginning to see a theme here with these titles?

Heck yeah, I'm in the Christmas spirit! Even though I'm insanely busy (yeah, that ol' gripe again) and feel like my head's going to spin off and the kids are going to give me a stroke and I'll never sleep again...aside from that stuff...I'm totally in the Christmas spirit!

I really love Christmas.

I love the magic of it.

I love Santa and the reindeer and little one's wishing for zillions of toys.

I love decorations and the smells and the...

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Southern warmth for your snowy weather....

Posted by Robin . on Friday, November 26, 2010, In : Photography 
Hope everyone had an awesome Thanksgiving! After my two week no coke/no good coffee creamer diet, I super indulged in all the amazing food at BOTH of the Thanksgivings that we go to! It's back to business today though. Even the half-glass of coke I had last night isn't going to make me fall back off the wagon!

If you're partaking in the Black Friday be with you.

We got our first "major" cold front last night. It went from 80s and humid to 40s and dry as hell. I'...

Busy Little Bee

Posted by Robin . on Friday, November 19, 2010, In : Photography 
Yep, that's me lately. Busy lady over here.

It's great, really. Our photography business has started to really take off and we've been booked a lot lately. It means a ton more work for me but, I'm loving it.

It's totally blowing my mind how fast the weeks are shooting past me though. I cannot believe it's almost Christmas.

Don't even say "It's still a month away."

It's freakin' here, dude. It's right around the corner and it will be here as fast as tomorrow. I'm so not ready. Looking forward t...

Snappy and TRex

Posted by Robin . on Monday, November 15, 2010, In : Photography 
I've taken the kids with me on a couple of photo shoots lately and was able to get a few good pics. A few fun shots of Snappy one day and a nearly failed attempt at Christmas card shots another day.

I say a few good ones because some of them look like this...

And this...

That whole reel cracked me up. It's worth it though when I get to pull a few pics like this...

Could she look any older in that last pic? Or any sassier? Oy vey.

At least I got some cute ones of her a few days before this shoot. M...

We rocked our Halloween's socks off

Posted by Robin . on Monday, November 1, 2010, In : Photography 
Disclaimer: This may or may not be a picture overload post.

I hope everyone had an awesome time this weekend! Lots of parties and ghoulish fun, I suppose?

Ours rocked.

0007's brother throws a Halloween party every year and, I swear, every year it gets better. It's uber kid-friendly but, a blast for us adults as well. Our kids love it because, on top of the costumes and candy and junk food as far as the eye can see, they get to hang out with their cousins and their other friends. We love it be...

Bro's Grafix pics and a bit of a rant

Posted by Robin . on Wednesday, October 27, 2010, In : Photography 
Quick note: Today (10/27) is the last day of the Home Makeover Giveaway!

So, I mentioned that last weekend I had a photo shoot at an engagement party for our photography business that 0007 and I have recently started, Bro's Grafix. It was really nice. Lots of people that I peripherally know through 0007 (his hometown peeps) and they were all fantastic. Gorgeous couple (seriously, their children will be beautiful!) and some adorable kids to snap pics of. Slightly challenging since the majority...

Editing with Textures

Posted by Robin . on Tuesday, October 19, 2010, In : Photography 
I had a photo shoot the other day with an adorable family. I so love outdoor shoots.

I've been playing with textures in my editing and I'm loving them. For me, photography is art. I love the editing process because it's such a big part of creating that art. The textures are so fun. I'm addicted. I love how they can be super subtle or a major part of the picture.

If you use textures in your editing, leave me a link so I can see!

Wait. Get the camera.

Posted by Robin . on Friday, August 20, 2010, In : Photography 
Phew. This week kinda flew by, eh? Snappy's bday Monday was capped off with ice cream and grandparents (and a few gifts we had managed to hold on to). She had a great time. I don't think she was expecting the little celebration because we had already had the party. In true Snappy form, when she was handed the first present to open she said, "Wait. Get the camera." That should be written on our family crest.

Yesterday I had a photoshoot with the cutest little family. It was a blast. They own to...

Three Years Ago

Posted by Robin . on Monday, August 16, 2010, In : Photography 
Three years ago, I met my new best friend.

Three years ago, the playing field of our family got level.

Three years ago, TRex became a big brother.

Three years ago, 0007 got wrapped around a pinkie for life.

Three years ago, hair bows and tutus invaded our life.

Three years ago, life got sweeter.

Three years ago, I had no idea how fast the next three years would pass.

Three years ago, we were just greeting our Snappy.

She's three today.

And, our lives have been happier having her in them the last thre...

Brace Yourself

Posted by Robin . on Monday, August 2, 2010, In : Photography 

Because we're about to go into picture overload.

Last weekend, 0007 and I both did some photo shooting at some birthday parties. Scott has been nagging me like a repressed housewife all week long to post these pics. So, here ya go.

First, some from the party 0007 did...

And, some from the party I did...

There you have it. If you've made it this far, your reward will be mailed to you in 4-6 weeks. If you want to check out more of our photography you can see it on the Bro's Grafix websi...

That was a good one, fo sho!

Posted by Robin . on Monday, June 14, 2010, In : Photography 

Our weekend started with a visit from my nephew. My brother and sister-in-law went to see Iron Maiden on Friday night and we got to keep this super cutie...

The cutie went home and we all donned our swimsuits and headed to a birthday pool party. 0007's cousin's son turned one and the party was a blast.

TRex is really becoming quite the little fish.

It's a hard job to kick back by the pool but, somebody's gotta do it.

Snappy is a party girl.

She was not happy after 0007 did this.

One of the cutest ...

Big Brother to Snappy. TRex is our 6 year old, super crazy, high energy, sensitive and sweet, unbelievably intuitive, movie quoting, story telling, dinosaur loving, mini-Superman. (and sometimes Spiderman or Hulk or Wolverine or one of many other characters.)


Sister to TRex. Snappy is our 3 year old, baby toting, crayon loving, song singing, cuteness connoisseur, giggling, stubborn little Princess. She is both a Daddy's Girl and a Mommy's Girl. And she's figuring out how to twist TRex around her finger.
