This is probably one of my favorite pictures I have ever taken. I have a weakness for pictures of little ones not looking and not smiling. The pictures that are just so raw and real.

My sister-in-law, Amanda, has been insisting I start watching Doctor Who. So after ‘trying’ to wait for my husband to watch it with me, I just went ahead and started watching it without him. . OF COURSE I GOT HOOKED! I mean come on. . . How could a nerd like myself NOT get hooked :)

So as I was ending the last available season on Netflix & contemplating Amanda’s birthday, my husband happened to have a stereo delivered. I looked over saw my 11 month old son playing with the box and thought now hey THAT box would make a good Tardis. So I went on a mission to create a birthday present for Amanda. First to find out, which doctor she liked. She told me the 10th and the 4th. After seeing the 4th, I just KNEW I had to turn my curly haired son into Tom Baker. So I enlisted the help of a couple talented friends and clients to create his outfit, and then started researching the 4th doctor’s tardis, from what I found online, the 4th doctor had a ‘black’ sign vs the white you see in the older/newer episodes & his tardis was simpler than the others. SCORE! I can do this!

Also, while researching the 4th doctor I also came across the quote “There’s no point being grown-up if you can’t be childish sometimes”. This solidified everything. It was just too perfect, the quote, the curly hair, everything. I HAD to do this. Meanwhile my husband was sitting there looking at me like I’m crazy because my inner nerd was totally shining through & I was getting more and more excited as each piece started falling into place! It took a month to piece together & set up everything, but I love the end result! If you have some nerd in you, I’d love to hear from you! :)

It was made using a stereo box, pizza box, can of soup, paint, printer/cardstock paper, scissors, a glue stick – and a lot of patience lol!

What a fun session with these two love birds. So excited for them to welcome their baby into the world!

I love when I get calls from past clients wanting to book something new. I love it even more when that just so happens to be a surprise birthday party for their wife’s 50th birthday! This was such a fun event & I am so happy I was able to take part in it!

I’ve been taking pictures for the Nash family for 5 or more years. I usually take pictures of sweet Naveen for her birthday parties but I was blessed to be able to come do family shots for everyone when Naveen’s uncle came to visit! (He is in the military so this is only the 2nd time I’ve met him!)
