As I got Bella off on the bus this morning I couldn’t help but leave the front door open and let little Miss Lilly come on out and enjoy the absolutely amazing weather. It’s so hard to believe this is really winter with gorgeous weather like this! And the forecast is calling for above average highs 10 days out! What a winter this has been. Although I’m not complaining.
Lilly normally isn’t this dressed up this early in the morning, but she saw Bella putting on a twirly skirt and starting saying “kirt, kirt!!” She had to be like her big sister. And when Bella put her shoes on Lilly went running to find her own shoes. I can foresee that Bella is going to have quite the little shadow over the next few years.
She seems confused as to why I left the door open, lol.
It was so foggy this morning, but as soon as we went outside it started clearing and was gone within 15 minutes.
Watching all the birds flying around.
Silly little cutie.
The last of the fog fading away.

I had the pleasure of photographing this sweet boy 3 years ago when he was just a baby. I can’t believe how big he’s gotten! And he now has a beautiful little sister who is just as sweet as he is. I’m so glad I still had the little blue chair I used in 2008. And I’m so happy I had the chance to see this wonderful family again.
And baby sister 2011
Only a day into this posting everyday thing and I’m behind…not a good sign. Oh well, I have an excuse.
My sisters came to visit yesterday and I spent the afternoon with them. We met at Flapjacks, a restaurant near our house that serves delicious pancakes. YUM. Then we just hung out and watched the babies play as usual. Best entertainment ever!
Sarah asked me to grab a few photos of C and while you don’t see his face here, I think this is my favorite. Those chubby hands and feet won’t look like that for long and these are the photographs I LOVE to look back on of my children. The ones that remind me of how tiny they once were.
This month the wonderfully talented group I’m posting with has chosen the theme “Monochrome”. We’re each supposed to post an image that is our interpretation of that word and I am so excited to see what everyone has come up with! I invite you to follow the blog carousel as well by clicking the links at the bottom of each post. So grab your cup of coffee and have fun browsing through each blog!
I chose a portrait that was simple in it’s design, yet by the time I finished processing the image, it had a totally different feeling. When I first loaded this image into Photoshop, I stopped as I always do to think about how I wanted to process it. I knew I wanted a vintage feel based on her clothing. I also wanted to make the portrait look old, worn and treasured. Ever since Lilly was just a few days old, my mom has told me how much she reminds her of a photograph of my Nonnie (a variation of of the word “grandma” in Italian) when she was a baby. So as a nod to that photograph, this is what I created.
I hope you enjoyed my post and ask that you please visit my amazingly talented friend’s blog next. Head over to Calgary portrait Photographer, Brandy Anderson to see her take on this month’s theme.
After months of perfecting I’m so happy to say that my newest set of Photoshop actions, the Lilly Set, is done! I’ll be releasing them within the next 24 hours. If you want to be the first to snag the set and hear about any discounts, please sign up for our newsletter below or like the MiaBella Fanpage.
Here’s my littlest cowgirl. Photo edited with Hushabye from the new Lilly Set.
Our sweet Lilly when she was nearly 2 weeks old. I look at the pictures of her when she was this tiny and fresh and can’t believe how much she’s changed in just 2 months. It really does go by too quickly. I don’t think a day goes by that I don’t ask her to slow down. It seems like the time is passing even faster with her then it did with my other children…maybe because she is our last baby. Whatever the reason, I treasure each day and am so thankful that God has given me the ability to capture every moment with my camera.
Little Lilly on day 6.
Little Mia and Mason were so precious and sweet and I was so thrilled to be able to capture just how perfect and tiny they were at this age. They just wanted to be cuddled together and warm…precious!
More from our last trip to Florida. I have to say, this was by far the best family vacation we had ever been on. The area was quiet, the water was the most beautiful color I’d ever seen in Florida (and we’ve been many times), and the kids loved every minute of it. We’ve decided this was the first of many trips to this beautiful area.
