The cutest baby ever...

...but I a bit biased as she is mine *heart*

She is nine months and the perfect little model for these leggings and hats. Trust me there will be lots more to come, but one set a day is about all she can stand :)

As I have had a lot of inquires about the hats and leggings I have created a new blog... http://frillsndeals.blogspot.com/ (I know that is all I need...another blog ;) )

this is how she tells me she is done for the session

Watch for more to come...these are so much fun!

Calling all parents of older kids/tweens...

...I am updating my portfolio for the 2008 year and realized that I don't have any new images of any kids older than 6 and I really want a well balanced portfolio :)
I am looking for ages 7-14 but wouldn't refuse 15-16 year olds

SO>>> if you have a child, or know of a child that lives in the Northern Utah or Southern Idaho area and is willing to let me to borrow them for my portfolio please reply here or email me (fill out the contact form on my website www.amynielson.com ) and I will get back to you about when and where and all the other fun details. Sessions will not take place until after Christmas (possibly during Christmas break)

What is in it for you? Well until I fill my quota you will receive a complimentary session (a $100 value) and prints 25% off...or a babysitter (of said child) for 2 hours if you don't want any prints.

Thank you!

I will leave you with the oldest child in my portfolio to date...isn't he a stud!

I have been tagged...

...and while I have tons of work to do I am grateful for the little distraction!

So my cousin Scott tagged me :)
1-The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.
2- Each player answers the questions about themselves.
3- At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.
So here we go-

Five Things I was doing 10 years ago-

#1 Dishes...done

Five things I would do if I were a Billionaire-

#1 Buy some land, build a nice modest house (who wants to clean a huge house and who wants a maid) with a nice studio, landscape the yard to use for pictures as well as for wedding receptions.
#2 Buy all the lenses I want to go with my new camera (those things can add up so I may not get all of the ones I want).
#3 Take my family to Itally to see our villa
#4 Get as many degrees as I can
#5 Start a home for kids needing a good home.

Three of my bad habits-

Five things people probably don’t know about me-

#2 I hate, hate, hate cereal...will not eat it!
#3 I will only eat celery in my mom's egg/potato salad or chicken salad
