Bring It On.

I'd like to send out a quick thank you to everyone who commented on my last post. I truly do think that your wishes worked for me as I woke up this morning feeling fresh and rejuvenated with a burning desire to be productive. However, since I am still carless at the moment, there is only so much that I can do around the house; hence, my tiny blog makeover. Nothing has changed except for the name, of course, which was inspired by my latest reading selection (Feel free to grab my new button and do a little exchanging).
Currently, I find myself lost in the pages of J. Randy Taraborrelli's biography on Marilyn Monroe, and when I came across the line "She so loved being in love," well...I fell in love too. While this is not the point of this post, if you harbor any interest at all in the former model/actress (even the most minuscule amount of interest) or if you simply like to read biographies as I do then please, please read this book. It is absolutely fantastic and very well researched. If you didn't have much respect for Ms. Norma Jeane prior to the read, you certainly will when you finish.

Anyhow, since I have introduced a new blog persona I will continue with the theme of introduction and proceed to introduce to all of my faithful readers the newest addition to our family- little baby Camille.
She is my cousin's daughter, and I was extremely honored when my Aunt asked me to photograph her last week during our family gathering.
The lighting was escaping us so our time for the shoot was quite brief, but I think that I was still able to capture some great shots. Then again, how could I not have? Babies are the easiest and most naturally photogenic subjects to shoot!

There aren't many things cuter than a wide-eyed, red headed baby girl.


  1. Emmy: you are so right...your last statement...and the bottom picture of Chris and Camille (dad and daughter) is PRICELESS...thanks for sharing with the blog-o-sphere. HUGS to you from Aunt Cathy ***so glad u are feeling better!!!***

  2. She is adorable! Makes me want a girl now.

  3. aw--these shots are so cute!
    and i'm glad you're feeling better (i just read your other post now. shame on me for being so being in my reading, haha). i'd send you a new car in the mail if i could.

  4. Emmy,

    I was looking through my favorites on my computer today and found your blog. I'd totally forgotten about it! So I started reading it from the most current post backwards and I came upon this one. It gave me a lump in my throat and big old tears in my eyes! I was the one who was honored that you would photograph my beautiful granddaughter. And I was extremely surprised and pleased that you would put them on your blog! You did such an amazing job! She would be much harder to deal with now that she is so mobile! But since you are such a gifted photographer, I'm sure you would not have a problem! I wish you could see her now. Camille is so much fun and is cuter than ever, as you can see from my facebook pictures of her. :)

    I just read your post where you had been sick early in the year. I'm so glad it wasn't longterm and that you are better now. And I'm assuming you have a car by now....

    Take care, dear niece! You are awesome and I love you!

    Aunt Vicki

    PS I thought I wrote on this earlier in the day, but it didn't show up??
