June Quarterly Top 5 Link Up and Giveaway…Come JOIN US!!!
I hope all of you mothers, of furry friends and children alike, have searched through your second quarter photos and are ready to share them with Amber, Sarah and myself. If you’re not sure what I am talking about scroll down to the bottom of this post to read all of the details and see the prizes that will be randomly given away.

Personally, I can’t believe it’s June. In fact, by the time we post next quarter’s photos…I’ll be sharing pictures of our daughter OUTSIDE of the womb. Crazy! Anyways, it’s time for me (and YOU) to share your TOP 5 Favorite Photos from April to June.  I actually don’t have a ton of pictures of Kitty Paw or even our daughter, so I included a couple of belly shots. I hope you won’t mind. Here they are in no particular order:
Kitty Paw Looking Up RS
In April, I caught Kitty Paw in our guest room looking up into the window. She sometimes likes to appear as though she’s deep in thought. But I know better…she’s just trying to avoid the camera.
I obviously did not take the above shot…but Sarah did! This is probably my favorite maternity photo from our session. I would have been right at 29 weeks. Looking back at this picture, I hardly look pregnant compared to how I feel right now.
3d4d Ultrasound Photos
I didn’t take these pictures either, but this is my baby’s first portrait session with the ultrasound tech (taken in May). I love that she’s already smiling. I’m convinced she’s going to look more like my husband. When we talk about who she’ll look like – I tell him that I’d love for her to have his blue eyes and blonde hair…he tells me he wants her to have my looks. We’ll see.
Ashley and Jeremy - Field Shot by Casey Martinez
Another photo I didn’t take…but my friend Casey Martinez did! I guess you would say this is our first “family portrait”…at least until she is born. I’m looking forward to getting the high resolution file for this image. I can’t decide if I’ll put it on canvas or just frame it. Either way, it makes me happy.
Lil Black and White Kitty RS
Finally, here’s another picture of Kitty Paw. She’s still in the guest room, but this time she is sleeping under the bed. This has become her new favorite place to hide out during the day.

Now show us your Top 5!!! Amber of Click Pray Love, Sarah Halstead, and I want to see them. Here’s how it works: 
  • Go through your April, May and June 2012 photo archives
  • Choose your favorite FIVE photos and post them to your blog or Flickr account through June 26th

Wow, Canela is a true inspiration. She is a mom of six who creates classy, elegant jewelry.  Please, take a moment and visit Cinnamon Sticks on Etsy.

I can’t say enough good things about Kim and her desire to generate more funds through her workshops, so she can capture photos and provide prints for foster children. Kim is not only a mom to 3 biological children, but she is a foster mom and photographer. She has combined her two loves and is bringing you an online workshop as a result.

If you have Photoshop or Photoshop Elements, but are still struggling to use it to it’s fullest potential take a moment to check out what Kim offers through her workshop

Yes, you read that correctly. HelloCanvas has agreed to give away 3, 24X32 canvas prints (US residents only). While, I have not personally ordered from HelloCanvas, Sarah recently received a canvas print of the boys from there, so be sure to read her thoughts and to check out the options HelloCanvas provides.
