help me to help you. :-)

Hey blog readers. I have gotten a few emails about people on PC’s that can’t see my blog photos. My website guy and I are both stumped by this. If you can’t see my photos like you should, can you please email me with more details? Like what photos aren’t showing up? What kind of…

    Okay, So I can see all of the images still using my PC (cause it’s all I got) but opening up your blog on Safari instead. Hmmmm. However, the contact button does not work, so that is why I am commenting instead.

    Hi.. I can’t see any images in your blog and I’m using Google Chrome 2.0… I follow your blog in Google reader too and there are no pictures there.

  • GailApril 20, 2009 - 12:51 pm

    Bets, Hey girl – images show up for me on the PC I have in my office at work. Good luck figuring it out – sorry you’re dealing with technical issues – blech!

  • Pat QuinnApril 20, 2009 - 5:41 pm

    I have never had any problem viewing images — which are always AMAZING btw!

  • JennieApril 20, 2009 - 6:11 pm

    I use internet explorer and Mozilla Firefox to open your site and I have no issues viewing your pictures or videos. Have a great day!!!!!


I LOVE it when a high school senior reads my blog. I’m pretty impressed when with all the different types of media flying about these days, my blog lands in the lap of people leading very different lives than mine and it sticks. I figured teens wouldn’t be that interested in a mom of a…

fun with long hair

Miles’ hair is SOOOOO long that sometimes, I can’t help but have some fun with it. One evening, as we were wrapping up dinner, I wanted to see if his hair was long enough for a little “whale spout” pony tail. As John ignored me, I proceeded to find out that indeed, his hair was…

    The black and white photos of Miles looking in the mirror are cute! In those shots, he REALLY looks like you in your baby photos, don’t you think?

  • Jessica ParkisonApril 16, 2009 - 8:09 pm

    I do the same thing to Oli’s hair when its long! Glad i’m not the only one! 🙂 It sounds like you and john have the same relationship as my DH and I.

  • April Cochran-SmithApril 16, 2009 - 8:18 pm

    That’s hilarious! He totally looks like Edward 🙂

  • AnnaApril 17, 2009 - 1:48 pm

    Hey my name is Anna Hammond. I found your website a while back and I love your work! But recently your pictures havn’t been showing up, I was wondering if you knew what the problem was?

    thanks 🙂


  • CassieApril 17, 2009 - 6:07 pm

    I remember doing that to Paul all the time when he was little…how can you resist!

  • jess@studio3zApril 17, 2009 - 9:41 pm

  • ErickaApril 18, 2009 - 3:41 pm

    Miles has the best cheeks! He could be bald, have an afro, or a mohawk and I’d still have a hard time looking past his cheeks!!!

  • Anne WoehnkerApril 19, 2009 - 3:11 am

    ADORABLE pictures of sweet Miles;) And, yes, I do have trouble viewing the photographs. I normally can’t view them until at least a day or two after you post them. The blog writing appears, just not the photos;(

  • MayaApril 22, 2009 - 1:28 am

    Oh Miles!!! How did you get so hip so young?

  • SteveApril 22, 2009 - 3:32 pm


  • Sherry SmithApril 23, 2009 - 4:59 pm

    You really should share the picture of your Dad, when he was two. That is who Miles looks like…loving you and what you do. Mom

abby’s sneak peek

I have to be honest and say I have been a GROUCH for the past 3 nights in a row because instead of blogging Abby’s sneek peek, I have been dealing with hard drive issues. (Such a BORING topic, I know.) Hard drive issues are expected when you are a photographer as they don’t last…

    How gorgeous is she? I too am in love with the bangs, although I now know that I can’t really pull them off. And her freckles? Love em.

  • LeandraApril 15, 2009 - 4:43 pm

easter in freezing indiana

Many families have photos from their Easter Sunday where everybody is all dressed up in pretty pastels. Not us. It was FREEZING the morning Miles discovered the easter bunny had come, so here’s our Easter, Indiana style. They kind of look like our Christmas photos, but with eggs. Miles was THRILLED with his Easter goodies…. Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...

  • SarahApril 24, 2009 - 2:31 am
