Luca was just 11 days old when I first met him. He was one of the cutest newborns i've seen....
A year later......he's one of the cutest 1 year olds i've seen. Even with NO nap, he was full of smiles and showing off his adorable little teeth. We knew we needed to speed it up with the shoot since he hadn't napped, so we made our way around the block (yes, just one) and found plenty of spots to shoot at. Urban/street shoots are always great with changing up the looks of things :)
Look who is SO proud of himself standing up!.....
This one cracks me up......

I haven't even had a chance to go through all of the pics from today yet, but wanted to post just one since this family is headed off on vacation tomorrow morning. I didn't want them to suffer through the whole weekend wondering how the pics turned out, so one little teaser won't hurt ;)
Can you believe this little guy (one of my past newborns!!) was running on NO nap? He was amazing. I officially LOVE Luca :)

Ok, so maybe Valentines Day is overrated and just a ploy for companies to make more money....but who cares, it makes for cute photo ops ;)
~*HAPPY VALENTINES DAY FROM LOT116!*~ XOXOXO!!

No, it's not getting kids to smile.....it's something I have ZERO control over. Give up?
Thanks to the craptacular weather we had this weekend, I had to reschedule BOTH of my shoots this past weekend. Not only does that suck for my clients and myself....but it also sucks for YOU because now I don't have any sneak peeks for this week (since my shoots for this week aren't until Friday...so yeah, those won't be up until next week) :( Yeah, major suckage all around! I absolutely HATE not blogging throughout the week, so instead of posting nothing, I figured I would post some random mumbo jumbo just for boredom sake.
#1 - First things first, here is how i've been feeling lately.....
Silly, annoyed, goofy, chubby....and wanting a cupcake ;) Diets are no fun....and I truly wish I was one of those people who could eat whatever I wanted and still be thin...but yeah, no such luck in that department....so dieting it is. I'm proud to say that I went an entire MONTH without a single bite of fried food, bread, pasta, ice cream, cake, cookies (yes! Even though it's Girl Scout Cookie time! Uggh!), rice (and hellloooooo....i'm half asian...and married to an asian!?!), etc, etc. I'm currently on a 4 day "sanity break", but will be back on it starting Thursday :)
#2 - I'm completely honored and flattered to say that I now have over 750 fans on my Lot116 Facebook page!! THANK YOU to everyone who has joined, suggested me to their friends, etc. I would LOVE to hit 1,000+, so maybe I can reach that goal with your help :)
#3 - There are only THREE spots left for the Oct/Nov MINI sessions. Again, these are the ONLY shoots I will be booking in October and November, so book now or forever hold your peace ;) Yes, this includes friends, neighbors, friends of friends, past clients, etc. I will NOT be doing any special favors or "squeeze ins" for those months, so if you know you'd like a Oct or Nov shoot, these THREE spots are the ONLY spots left! Sorry! :) Click on the link above for the info if you are interested in nabbing one of the last spots :) Speaking of bookings.....here is what I currently have left for the remainder of the months: JUNE (3 spots), JULY (4 spots), AUGUST (4 spots), SEPTEMBER (3 spots). Once all of these spots are booked, I will be booked for the remainder of 2010! Insaaaaaane! :)
#4 - If you love photography and are looking to learn more, click on this banner below and join. You'll LOVE it! You can find me over there under the user name "julieoflot116". Whether you're just starting out, don't want to become an actual photographer but want to take better photos of your kids, etc, in general, this is the place to go. Everyone is SO extremely nice and helpful. You will learn a ton and they have contests, etc all the time :)
Alrighty.....don't give up on me folks. I know there's nothing worse than visiting a blog each week and seeing NO updates, but I PROMISE YOU that this is only because of the weather and that next week everything should be back to normal! :)
