Spread The Word About Janet!!

Just found this on another site, and I wanted to do my part by passing it on. This is Janet. She is suffering from ALL (acute lymphoblastic leukemia), and needs to find a bone marrow match NOW!
**Scroll down and pause my music player first!!

Here is the link to Janet's FB page.

Pic from today's shoot


Photoshoots Today!!

As I mentioned before, Liya and Nathan are boutique models. What that basically means is that boutiques on both Facebook and Etsy send them clothes and accessories, and in return we send them back pictures of their product for them to use in advertising.  Both kids have their own fan pages on Facebook (heavily monitored by yours truly), and Liya especially has enjoyed quite the "model status" lately. Today, we need to shoot pics for 3 different boutiques. One shoot will be both Liya and Nathan together, and the other 2 are of just Liya.
I used to pay for photoshoots, but at the rate Liya gets booked I can't afford to do that anymore! So I bought an entry-level DSLR camera, a lighting kit and a background stand...and well, let's just say I don't completely suck at it, LOL!
Liya loves doing shoots now...she hated it at first. Now she begs almost every day "Let's do pictures, Mommy!". She is sitting beside me now, asking!
Wish me luck b/c it is hit or miss with this Diva;)

Everybody Loves Liya;)

Had to share this pic, taken by the uber-talented LeighAnn Monaghan of Soul Search Photography . After spending an hour with Miss Liya, The Diva, she posted this pic as her Facebook status:

We love you too, Miss LeighAnn!!

Then & Now

Dusting Off This Old Blog!

I have to admit it: I've tried blogging on other services, and they were ok....but I miss this ol' blogger blog! So I'm dusting it off and turning it into a family blog. I have kept Liya's adoption journey here, and it now has it's own page. I'm sure I will be referring back to it every now and again. I can't believe it's been almost 2 years since I held her for the first time! My, how time flies! my 20 wonderful followers who have kept me on their blogrolls ALL this time: Welcome back into my little world;)


*Well, I can't figure out how to move all of the old blog posts to a new page:( If any of you know how to do that, please let me know!
