I think our house has fabulous windows that got lost in that boring old tan color. I wanted something really bold. Peppercorn was my first pick browsing colors online, but the swatch was practically black and I chickened out. We painted the brick Gauntlet Grey, the porch Dorian Grey, the trim bright white and the door black.

We also got the gutters repaired and leaf guards added.

It feels a lot cleaner and more modern which is a much better reflection of the inside and our taste. Now, on to dreaming about landscaping!

She has an amazing line of skin care products, is a masterful expert to your favorite celebrities and won D Magazines Best Facial again.  It has been a treat photographing her products, headshots, spa, charitable endeavors and even her wedding!

So much to celebrate. Happy Birthday!

Lucy and Milo

CARISSA BYERS PHOTOGRAPHY: Lucy &emdash;
A few shots playing around in the studio with 2 year old Lucy and 2.5 month old Milo. These moments happen by chance. Like when I'm taking down lights and she wants to come in and help.

If I were to dare change their clothes, or at least put Milo in a onesie that fits or wipe the yogurt off Lucy's pants or her mouth or take off that band aid accessory or if I were to show any hint that I wanted to brush that beautiful mane of red hair, I'd never get the photo. Never.

For the record, this is not what I mean when I tell you I shoot lifestyle photography. But they are adorable.

Nana and Papa meet Milo

CARISSA BYERS PHOTOGRAPHY: July 2014, Nana and Papa Visit &emdash;
Nana and Papa came up from Arkansas to meet Milo. Papa brought a load of fresh produce and Lucy and Penn got to shell purple hull peas for the first time. Penn was really good at it and they were delicious along with the fried okra, fried green tomatoes and cornbread Penn made.

Milo: Two Months

CARISSA BYERS PHOTOGRAPHY: Milo: Two Months &emdash;
Milo is two months old. He is the sweetest little guy. He smiles at me first thing in the morning and is starting to hit a predictable schedule. One of his most appreciated qualities is still sleep. He goes to bed around 8:00p.m. He wakes up around 1a.m. and 7:30 a.m. to eat and if we're all lucky he'll sleep with me some more until 9:00.  He has the best dude hair! One of his eyes is turning brown while the other remains blue. He hates riding in the car.

At his two month checkup he was 13.1 pounds and 23 inches long.

Milo: Month 1

CARISSA BYERS PHOTOGRAPHY: Milo: One Month &emdash;
Milo is one month old and 11 pounds. He is cute and cuddly and wonderful. He started smiling and I can't get enough. He loves bath time! And he's started crying less. His best trick is sleeping through the night, other than to eat, and fall right back asleep. He has a pretty strong dislike for the carseat and bottles. His hair and eye color are still up for debate.

Flashback to Lucy's One Month.
