I can't believe how fast time flies! Last week Hudson officially started preschool! He had taken a few summer classes, but it didn't hit me as hard as it did when I took him into a real classroom filled with other kids, teachers, work stations, a gathering rug, and his very own cubby! I did get a little teary! Luckily, he won't feel out of place, he has a few cousins attending the same preschool and he gets to see them at recess time! One thing that slightly freaked me out was the realization that I have just started the long 15 year haul of schooling (well at least through the end of high school) for Hudson and there's no turning back!

Here's Hudson with his cousins:


Hudson saying goodbye to "Swoanie":

Don't look too close, I didn't have my face on yet!



After I picked up Hudson from school we had some fun making faces at the camera, the boys were totally hamming it up!



Hudson insisted on taking a few shots of me, he really knows how to handle the camera (with a little help from yours truly)!

Too cute. I know how you feel. It's hard to keep it all together when your little man starts school. LOVE the pics of your boys and you look gorgeous in the shots Hudson got of you. Strawberry blonde looks good on you.

dude... your kids are adoooooooorable. I have a two year old of my own and it's so much fun to see good shots of kids. I'm also a REALLY big fan of the color you're using on your images. I know we photographers like to keep some things secret, but any chance of you letting me in on how you're working that? Keep up the good work.

So what if I told you that we bought plane tickets for my little family to go to Idaho for a sitting with the Lyons? Ironic because we only live 45 minutes from each other in southern california and we text on our cellular telephones. It's not quite true about the tickets...we don't have them...besides, if we had a sitting with the Lyons, It would be on our couch watching the Chargers. Was that an invite? I'm confused.
