These Boots Are Made For Walking

Here are a few of the outdoor shots from alicia booker. The outfit was my idea. I wanted to do something unique and fun and I think we captured that.. My sweet girl was so good throughout the shoot. She really loves the camera. It's funny to watch her work the camera.. She is already a little model

Look at those chunky legs
LOVE This one

Photo Shoot Session 2

Alicia had a great idea for our second set of pics. She wanted to put Bailey in the middle of our bed surrounded by her toys... I love the classic smocked bishop dress. It just makes a sweet picture. The dress came from Children's Shoe Company in Murfreesboro. These dresses are the best because Bailey will be able to wear it for at least two seasons. Pair a white top under it and it is perfect for Fall also!

Love this one
Shuler had to join in

Photoshoot- Session 1

As mentioned in my previous post, we had Bailey's 1 year photo session this weekend. Alicia Booker did the photos and I am telling you. I am completely blown away!!! Her husband Andrew and her work together and they are great! They took 3 hours of photos and Bailey loved every minute of it! This is the first of 5 outfit changes that we did. I can't wait to show more!

Weekend in a Nutshell

We had a pretty low key weekend. Friday, Bailey's "G' kept her while I got my hair done and surprised us by letting Ben and I go on a date while she kept Bailey!! Dates are few and far between these days and it is always great to get out and just be husband and wife together. We chose our favorite local place in Murfreesboro, Maple Street Grill. I have never eaten anything there that was not incredible! While we were out, G decided to keep Bailey all night so we enjoyed a good night's rest. We went to pick her up Saturday morning and waked into a livingroom full of new toys! I got Bailey home after a few stops and tried to get her to take a nap because we had our 1 year photoshoot with Alicia Booker. Well, a nap didn't happen and I was worried about the shoot. Alicia and her husband, Andrew did a 3 and 1/2 hour photoshoot with my girl and she was the perfect model the whole time. I can't wait to post pictures from the session. I can't wait to see her pictures with pearls surrounded by her Tiffany&Co bags. They took over 1,000 pictures and their ideals were great! For now, time to go celebrate Ben's sister's birthday at Bricktops in Nashville!! Oh and here are a few Bailey pics to satisfy ya!

We took Bailey to her first fair Saturday night and it was well.....eventful!! We got there around 5 and made our way to the petting zoo. My brother and nephew went with us. Ethan is 7 and was so excited for a night at the fair. We got to see rabbits, turkies, and chickens and, while in that tent, the rain started. It only lasted for about 10 minutes and Ethan was wanting to see the pigs so we made our way to that tent. bailey loved the animals and the pigs especially liked her! She was running through the pen doing her pig snort. It was so cute! Ethan wanted to ride some rides so we went to that area and as soon as Ben and Ethan got on a ride, the bottom fell out of the sky! It stormed so bad. We got under a concession stand to avoid the rain, which it did not. There came a point where we were already soaked so we decided just to go to the car. We couldn't get any wetter than we already were! The way there I talked how Ben always parks to leave a place, not to go to a place. He parks close to the road so he can get out. Tim and Ethan loved hearing me fuss all the way back about how wonderful it was that we were parked near the road!! We were miserable but laughed the whole way. We will always remember Bailey's first fair!
