For it was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.

A rekindling experience of love through imagery.

Easter Eggs!

It's time for our annual Easter installment here at Monroe Files Photography!
Here's last year's post complete with an egg hunt, the pups going swimming and chick pops.
No egg hunt photos this year. It was still on like Donkey Kong but it was COLD and rainy! Call me a wuss, but I stayed in the pavilion and gave out prizes. =) The egg hunt was over and done with in about 8 minutes! Those kids are crazy, but they LOVED every second of it!
After the egg hunt, Jamie and I got down to business: Dying eggs with silk ties! SO COOL! It was tons of fun and super easy. We enjoyed it much more than "the old fashioned way". =)

Two dozen eggs wrapped in silk, ready to be wrapped in a sheet and then boiled for 20 minutes in vinegar water.

Here are the results! SO cool!!

Lovin' the pasiley!

The guys really liked this one. We were amazed by the transfer details!

More paisley goodness!

We had one casualty, it was a paisley one too! =(

Stained glass, swirly goodness!

We even had shapes!

It was like opening presents!

This one was made with a silk scarf. It works just as good!

Here's the other side.

More swirly goodness...

My favorite! I can't get over the detail!

Here's the other side.

I really liked this one too!

Liam & Erin: Mommy and me! | Baby Photographer Monroe Files Photography

I am officially caught up after this post! Yay! These got lost in the tumble of weddings and first trimester sickness. But it's never too late to enjoy them! Plus it's nice to see some COLOR! According to my pussy willow tree and flower box...spring is officially on it's way and I could not be happier! Bring on the flowers, leaves and sunshine!
Here is Erin and Liam's Mommy and me session! I will admit I was a little nervous for this, as I do not have tons of experience with little kids, let alone a 3 month old =) But they quickly relaxed in front of the camera and my creative juices kicked in! I'm pretty sure Erin thought I was crazy when we got to the park, but that's part of the fun!

We borrowed the neighbor's beautiful sunflowers =)

Ehh, Mom! No kisses! Embarassing!

We were a little upset with getting photos done and in came Mr. Binkie to the rescue!

And 5 minutes after Mr. Binkie we scored a huge grin!
What a stinker!

At the park with my Mom!

I want one of these of me and Lily!

Making faces at Mommy making faces =)

Check out that drool bubble! Bombs away!!

Erin thought I was nuts putting him on the slide...thus the scary look on his face.
He'd love the slide now!

Riding Dino with my Mommy. She loves me =)

Another fave, such a cute face!

Yep, loading them pants for Mommy and cutting the photo shoot short !
Typical male...will do anything to get out of getting his picture taken!

Another fave!!

Liam thought after pooping his pants he was done with photos...
DUN DUN DUN! Halloween outfit photo shoot time!

Hehehe, his face is priceless!

What a cutie!

So Liam wouldn't feel completely tortured (really it wasn't torture at all!), Jabroni was dressed in his Lolly Lobster get up.

"Mom. Quite giggling at me!" =)

Are you pondering what I'm pondering?

Perfect baby lips and a cute button nose!

Tuckered out kids on the futon...

A boy and his puppy...a puppy and his moose...

...and even in his sleep, Liam thinks of ways to get in on some shenanigans! =)
I had tons of fun taking pictures of Liam and getting crazy with my fall stuff. I LOVE fall! I was in my happy place =)
What I can't believe is how MUCH Liam has grown since then! He now has two pearly whites on the bottom and he's an army crawler. His back legs don't crawl. I think he doesn't realize they are back there yet! In due time, he will...and possibly be up walking. Look out mom! :P

Monroe Files Photography has been published !

I am SUPER excited to share that Monroe Files Photography has been published on the front cover of the 2010 Pennsylvania Newspaper Directory! I was contacted earlier in the year and told they were going to use 2 of the photos I submitted on the cover. They finally have their site updated and copies are ready to be sent out. Boy was I surprised when I saw the cover for the first time and found THREE of my photos being used!

*happy dance!!*

You can check out this year's PNA directory here:

And see my photos rocking it out! =)

Here are the three photos on the cover:
