i giggle as i type this. just wanted to say hello to my foreign friend. i’m sorry i don’t know your name, but i wanted to say thanks for breaking my record views in one day. wow. i hope you are enjoying the anderson adventures!! 🙂

what’s the weather like down there? here? well, chilly. ara can confirm that.


anyhow, don’t be shy. leave us a message. i don’t know Portuguese but would love to learn a few phrases. and my husband admires your fighters! hope to hear from you! 🙂

“P” is for (super-hero) power!

In the famous words of Bonnie Tyler:

I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the end of the night
He’s gotta be strong
And he’s gotta be fast
And he’s gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I’m holding out for a hero ‘til the morning light
He’s gotta be sure
And it’s gotta be soon
And he’s gotta be larger than life…




“”P” is for (super-hero) power” can come in small packages!!!

“P” is for precious!

after their daddy-daughter date, full of wildness, they were wiped out. boisterous bowling, maniac mini golf, scrumptious sweets, and whatever secret fun (unspoken under oath) they had, i suspect the exhaustion took them both off guard. i came in after putting ayna to bed and found the duo like this. i grinned. and looked, right on my desk was my camera. suckers!



technically not my favorite lighting, or even edits, but you can’t always replicate moments like these!! they still have no idea i had an itty-bitty shoot as they snored away!

“”P” is for precious” was priceless!


baby bump!

i’m so excited to debut my very first maternity shoot! and what a sweet couple to experience this joyous event with. there’s no doubt this little fella is destined for great things. watch out NFL world! someone tough and fiercely cute is coming your way!IMG_3984 copy 2

“O” is for old!

yes, that’s how i feel every once in a while, particularly when my wee one is zooming here and there in wicked speeds! mind you, still on all fours. but i’ve caught her stand a few seconds on her own with a devilish grin on her chubby face.  her eyes brighten when i watch her maneuver around the furniture like a pro. the older she gets, the more i think about having another one, but that’s another post altogether!

“”O” is for old” gives me no choice but be young at heart just to keep up with her!
