Kerrville Texas Children's Photographer: Lyla turns ONE year old!!

Does anyone remember this sweet sweet baby from a year ago?

Well I cannot believe it has already been a year since she was born! 
Time sure does fly when you are having fun!

So her mom brought her in and we did a One Year Birthday Photo Shoot!!

She is such a happy little girl! Don't you just just love those curls!

"Doppy Day": September 12, 2010

This was the day we celebrated the adoption of our two children, Isaac and Hadleigh. For those of you who don't know our story, we fostered-to-adopt, TWO wonderfully beautiful children. Two years ago on September 12 the adoption was finalized & they will 
"BEE" ours forever!!

We have had them in our home since they were about 15 and 10 days old. 
They are not blood related. 
 They are EXACTLY one month apart to the day and they turned 3 years old this summer!

We had just a small lunch with a few of our friends and family and then we had this FABULOUS cake made by

Check her out!!

read about it here:

I really should try to keep up with this better, because honestly I don't remember much about last week and what was going on with the baby!

She is still moving a lot and growing.

Sometimes she is so far to the right side, I SWEAR I feel her in my back!!
It's quite a site to see if you look at my's pretty lopsided. 

We went to to the Dr. on Wednesday and she did another sonogram. Saw Libby again which is so fun. 
She is measuring right on time. I think you can see on the pics it says 31 weeks and 4 days or maybe 5 days which is exactly what I was on that Wednesday September 1st. 

This is a photo of her nose and lips!!

Then she went on to do the 3-D Sonogram, only Libby was still burying her face in my Uterus.
But she got one side of her face where you can see her eyes, lips and mouth again.
Dr. Wampler said she is definitely sucking on something, she couldn't tell if it was her thumb, her arm or her toes! :)

She is weighing in at about 4 lbs 2 oz and she says that is good!

My shower is coming up this Saturday and I am super excited. 
I scanned it in...isn't it so CUTE??

I am also registered at Beulah's in Fredericksburg, so if you are over there you can stop in and see all the cute things she has!!
I will try to post pics so you can see them. 

This past weekend I started getting ready for Libby by putting her "room" (aka: mine and erik's bedroom) together. I ordered this tree decal from Janey Mac Press on Etsy

I chose a few different colors, but it looks super cute on our wall. I will try to take a pic sometime! :)

I hung up all the clothes she's gotten so far and we've got the port-a-crib set up and ready. 

I have been seeing my chiropractor regularly, doing my exercise video and sometimes going to the gym to walk. 

I met a lady Saturday morning who said I definitely need to continue doing what I'm doing and that baby will come easy as pie!! She was really nice. She also told me I should start getting in the pool! 

She asked me if I was going to wait until she was ripe to let her come? 
She said "When the apple is will fall from the tree!" 
 I told her we were definitely going to let nature take it's course.

I finished my reading on the "Bradley Method" and Erik and I starting to practice tonight! Only 8 weeks left....and I have a feeling these weeks are going to FLY by!! 
I am really getting anxious and I am ready to meet this little girl. Praying for a safe, natural delivery and most of all a HEALTHY baby.

Portraits by Jenn: Maternity, Newborn, Children, Family and High School Seniors: Villarreal Family 2010

Introducing one of my Family Portrait Sessions that took advantage of my Christmas Card special!!
They endured the heat and it actually ended up being a pretty nice day for the session. We had a little bit of cloud coverage and a breeze!! 

I was SUPER excited to photograph this Family Portrait session with Rose and her family. 
I photographed the girls for their 1st birthday session a while back and they have grown so much!!

These girls are close to my kids age and it's so fun to see their personalities grow!! 

We did their photography session at River Hill Country Club here in Kerrville. It's so beautiful over there and PLENTY of shade!!

I will be working on their Christmas Card over the next couple of weeks!! 
If you are thinking of doing Christmas Cards this year with Portraits by Jenn, you will need to call NOW!!

I have a very limited # of sessions left before I go on Maternity leave in October!
