Photography + motherhood + honesty + smidge of sarcasm = my blog. I'm a mom, who works full time, and loves to take pictures of my family and friends. And if you want me to, I'll even take pictures of your family and friends! BUT, if I arrive and you are all dressed in khakis and white shirts, I may keep walking. I would be happy to take pictures for you, but only if you promise to show up with the real you. No props. No perfectly assembled matchy-matchy outfits. No fake smiles. Just you.

It's so quiet around here
So this is what life is like with one? Alena is off to the beach with her Nan and Papa for a few days so I spent some QT with the little man tonight - over mashed potatoes and cheese and cucumbers. Among other things, he has been trying to master the fork for some time. After dinner we colored newspapers on the floor and had Dance Party U.S.A. right there in the living room. He's got moves! One thing no one has ever accussed Algis of is having a pokerface. I was cracking up so much, and for once wasn't playing referee at the dinner table, that I grabbed my camera to try and capture the true Algis for everyone to see..
"Use my fork? No problem!"
Step 1: Stab mashed potatoes.
Step 2: Put (empty) fork into mouth.
(use both hands if necessary)
Step 3: Enjoy (imaginary) mashed potatoes. When steps 1-3 don't work, use your fingers.
OUCH! (I didn't say eat your fingers....)
When all else fails: And as usual, Baxter is always there to help with the crumbs.
