Newborn Model Search!!!!

Wednesday, April 29, 2009
If you are about to or know anyone about to have a little prince or princess, please read further!!
I have some great new props and fresh ideas I am dying to use on a new little one!!!

To qualify, the baby must be less than 2 weeks old (to stay nice and sleepy), and must be currently here or due before the end of May!!! It can be either a little boy or little girl, and the session needs to be able to take place within the next 4 weeks.

What do you get out of this?? 50% off the session fee(valued at $25) and 15% off all prints ordered. Not bad, right??

I am working on a brand spankin' new website, complete with full screen pictures and I would love to be able to showcase some new ideas I have with your little one! Contact me at dana_monticelli@yahoo.com for more details!

Stay tuned! More modeling casting calls coming up shortly!!

My baby

Saturday, April 4, 2009
This afternoon, I would like to give a shout out to my biggest little guy.

A little man that loves machines but is scared when they start up, a little man who thinks so hard sometimes MY head hurts, a little man that is his daddy's son thru and thru, a little man that is completely a night owl......and still sleeps in our bed, a little man that is a great big brother, a little man who is fiercely independent, and super smart, a little man who still loves his binky, and a little man who completely has my heart!!

Sometimes we forgot that you are only 2 and a half years old because it feels like you have been with us forever. I love you Cade Matthew!!

The rest of the proofs will be ready in a couple of days!!

And ending with "the cabbage patch"....

Thursday, March 19, 2009
Cade found this series of pictures particularly funny! He looks at me saying....."Wessie is so cute!"....

Moving indoors for some babyleg shots!

Love me some babylegs and newsboy hats!

A day out in the sunshine...urban style!

I took my kids out to enjoy the beautiful weather yesterday and got a bunch of new pictures! Of course, none of them together again but I will keep trying!! Cade is totally working me.....he knows I want one and therefore is going to tease me, sitting just long for me to plop his brother down and pick up the camera before he gets up and runs away!! Darn kid! This first post is the start of our day outside. This first one of West may be my fav of him of all time so far! Could his eyes really be any bluer??
