I really appreciate the nominations – the winner was chosen – the family of a service member currently in Iraq.  I hope he enjoys the surprise and is able to see them in person soon!!!

Know a special military family?

I am from a military family and spent 10 years in my first job working in an office with military guys and gals, so I’ve a soft spot for the uniform…

I am taking nominations until May 31st  for an appreciation photo session – one great family will receive photo session and prints purely as a GIFT!

Nominate your fav military family (and that can include just hubby and wife, wife or hubby who are holding down the homefront alone, hubby wife and a gaggle of kiddos… probably best in the Houston area huh so they can travel to the session!).

Tell me why they should win and we will pick from entries!

We just want to show some appreciation for what they do every day :)

What a beauty and so fun – ball of energy as all 2 yr olds are but the sweetest smile (when we weren’t busy pretending to be a frog!
Loved that fine baby hair – my little girl had that until she was 3 years old – soooooooo sweet :)
2 year old portrait sneak peek:

Beautiful, fun-spirited mommy waiting on babies… twins! Due any day, I am so glad we could fit her in this week :)
Isn’t she just glowing…

I met Tiffannie at the baby fair downtown Houston and fell in love with her scrapbooks – even more in love with the part where SHE does them FOR you!!!

I asked her to tell me a little bit about her:

Hello my name is Tiffannie Jones and I LOVE MAKING SCRAPBOOKS! I’ve been scrappin’ for over 10 years. When someone gives me their photos to scrap they are inviting me into their family and allowing me to tell their family story with my creativity! As a “scrapbook for hire” I meet and interact with so many different people and I absolutely love it! What I enjoy the most is seeing the look on their faces when they see what I’ve created with their memories!

So new and still so tiny – this was one cooperative little girl! Not a peep out of her – done in 45 minutes :) It isn’t a race mind you – but newborns normally take at least 2 hours to photograph :)   Mom and Dad didn’t escape all hazards though…

She hid this smile from me for quite a while – turning it on only when I set the camera down…



Jill: That smile is way too cute... I love them when they are this little and they give you that first little smile.

So fresh and new – and not a wink tired!! Well tired, but not sleeping :)
I think they are beautiful mom…


Jill: So sweet :)

anyone: can anyone enter? or does it has to be locals from the houston area?

Debi: Anyone can enter but you have to travel to Spring, Texas to have the photo session - I've had participants from Dallas but they were willing to drive here for the session so it is up to you!
