Twenty Somethin' ▌ Sierra Vista Photographer, Arizona

Today is my birthday. Twenty Somethin'. Today also marks the day that my husband has officially received his papers to "clear post". In the military community this means that you are one step closer to moving. So we are now twenty somethin' days away from stepping foot into our new home in Arizona, the next assignment! Which is why THIS will be my last post until July. As much as I love to blog, and as much as I will need to blog the stress and chaos of moving my family across the country, I decided to put my portrait sessions, blogging, and I Heart Faces contests on hold for awhile and focus my love and attention onto my children and the task at hand. Have you ever tried to explain to a preschooler why men are stealing his toys in large quantities with a large truck?? If you have then you know the incredible task I have before me... I will return in July, and if my best laid plans follow through I will be revealing a new blog, and a fully updated website reflecting a winter of military homecomings and traditions and a ton of recent clients. Our family had an enormously busy week; Julie and I took the kids to the zoo in Waco one last time, my college roommate, Meg, arrived from NYC, joining Julie as co-God Mother to The Baby, who was baptized on Pentecost Sunday. Head over to Julie's Blog for AMAZING photos from the day! We were happily entertained by Gary Sinise and "The Lieutenant Dan Band" here at Fort Hood, awesome show, and I took Meg to her first military homecoming ceremony at 12:30am on Monday morning. The Boy summarizes our current state of life by spending most of the last two days upside down! To hold you all over I'd like to share the highlights with the following twenty somethin' images (no, you cannot count the number of images to see how old I am.) See you in July!

Noooooooooooo, we can't go an entire month without your Blog. Well yes, I understand the NEED to shut down and turn towards the family, but, but these pictures are so darn stinkin cute,what will we do? Oh that's right I won't be near a computer for at least a week (if not longer),so maybe this will work.

Love the homecoming shot with the multiple family embraces,got goosebumps!

Good luck!!

What a busy, busy week! Your snake picture is terrific and I really like the self portrait you took. But, of all of them, the very last picture is the award winner. His expression, the depth of field, the light...all of it plays together for a fun, lively picture. I can't believe we will have to go a month without hearing from you. I bet you can't do it... :) (And I promise I'll get to the baptism pictures. I will! :) )

Oh, you will be missed. But you'll be a whole state closer to me in a few days, LOL! Love the photos, especially the shots of your boys together. Could they be any cuter? I don't think so. But the snake and tiger shots are so cool too! Congrats on the baptism of your youngest - what a special day! Good luck with the move - can't wait to here from you again in July!
