A Man With a Plan

The man behind nUM yUMMIES. He and his mom made an appearance on WCIU in December and today they stopped by Mettler Portraits for some business portraits. Lucky me they left some treats behind. When asked where he saw his business in five years he told me he could see himself delivering nUM yUMMIES to the white house.

Cutest Baby Contest Winner

Our Cutest Baby contest winner has been feeling a bit under the weather so we were so excited when we heard she would finally be able to come pick up her prizes. She just loved all her goodies from Intended Naturals. I think the lotion bar was her favorite and mom will be happy to know there's nothing artificial in it so it's safe for baby skin.

You can now find Intended Naturals at some Whole Foods stores. Go to the Intended Naturals website to find a full list of stores that stock their products. We are so grateful to them for donating this amazing Mommy and Baby gift basket.

More pictures to come!
Isn't she a doll? Do you love her headband you can get your own right here LuluLuxeDesigns

First Communion Session

We had lots of rain today and lots of cancelations but this little one braved the wind and rain for her first communion pictures. We got some beautiful shots but I like to have a little fun too so right before we called it quits we did some America's Next Top Model shots. I think this might be her Rolling Stone cover when her next single hits the charts. Thanks Miss C. I had a blast! You're a Rock Star!!!

Needles in the Eye

I would still rather stick needles in my eye than become a wedding photographer, hat's off to all who are, but when my baby sister gets married of course I will bring my camera. She was a beautiful bride.

Destination Chicago

I belong to a few photography groups and a fellow group member from California is in town with his wife. I grabbed a couple of my seniors and we headed to Chicago for a fun day of pictures.

If you're ever in California stop in and say hi to Danny and Diane of We Shoot Ya.
