How Shall I Ever Choose...

My friend Corey recently took some pics of Walker in downtown Durham. It was a hot an sticky day, but we had a blast. It was the first professional photo session Walker had experienced since he was three. You'd think he'd be used to having a camera in his face with me as his mom, but it took him a little while to come out of his shell and open up. I was worried that Corey wasn't getting any shots because he wouldn't look at the camera, but I should have known with her talent, she'd get the shot. In fact, she got so many great shots, I don't know how I'll pick!

She's met Walker before, but never spent an extensive amount of time with him, but her description on her blog post about the session nailed him "...super super spunky, have a million faces and love to laugh. Wendy, her husband Mike, and I took Walker downtown to get some shots.  Her goal was some fun photos of him and boy did we have fun.  This guy is full of vim and vigor.  I’ll save my favorite for last – his “beggin’ face!”

This is Walker's begging face. And in his words, "If you beg, you can get anything you want." That especially
works well with Nana and he knows it!

If you're in the Durham/Chapel Hill area and looking for a great photographer, check out Corey Williams - she is amazingly talented!


  1. Beautiful images! I just recently did the same with my 9 year old son at a tobacco field in Wendell. My son was not thrilled at first, as many of the first shots are are him with tears streaming down his face but eventually he warmed up & we got some great shots that I will treasure. These photos are priceless in a mommys eye!


  2. Great pictures! I love the 3rd one!

  3. These pictures turned out just wonderful. The 3rd photo is by far my favorite!

  4. I like the black and white pic.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Addition to the Family...

Meet the newest member of our extended family, Sporky. Sporky arrived Christmas day and was the one and ONLY thing my 12-year-old nephew wanted for Christmas. I've never held a hedgehog before now and it's not a pleasant experience when they point their spikes out at you, but Sporky started to overcome his shyness as the holidays passed and he's starting to get used to all of the attention. He really is a cutie.

Star Wars Gift Bag Tags

Two years ago, for Walker's Star Wars birthday, I created Yoda tags to attach to the gift bags for the party. Little did I know these bag tags would become so popular on Pinterest!

To date, these tags have been repinned almost 500 times!!!

So I thought since there's so much interest, I'd add them to my Etsy shop. So now, for just $8.00 - you can receive the file electronically and print them for yourself! I jazzed them up a bit with some sliver glitter puff paint on the light saber and some silver ribbon to attach to the dollar store bags. Print as many or as few as you want!

So, if you are planning a Star Wars party, check them out! And may the force be with you!
