The 3 Boys

Tony and I had quite an elaborate plan to surprise Anthony and Vinny with Artie. They were so excited and almost surprised. We changed the plan at the last minute due to the weather. We walked into the house and Artie's new doggy bed is near the front door. Anthony said, "A dog bed? Oh my gosh Vinny we're getting a puppy." As Tony was bringing him up the stairs. He is too smart for his own good sometimes. He's like a little detective who forgets NOTHING!

Anthony likes and plays with him more than I was expecting and Vinny loves him just as much as I had thought he would. Artie and Vinny will be life long pals. Vin lays on the floor next to Artie's bed while he is sleeping. Vinny is secretly trying to wake him up, however that is one tough task. I swear the puppy sleeps more than I did in my first trimester of pregnancy. Artie is Vinny's only friend while Anthony is away at school all day.

Tony and I wanted to get a photo of the boys with the puppy. I want a HUGE canvas for my newly painted kitchen walls. I think Tony was a little annoyed when I asked him to come with us. I'm sure he was thinking of a few hours to himself.. She does this all of the time by herself...Why does she need me to come anyway? What he must have forgotten is, usually I have the parents of the child I am photographing at the studio as well. Now while I'm photographing my own children I am no longer a parent I'm the crazy photo lady, who lets them jump on my bed, have wild light saber battles and put mud all over their bodies. Add a puppy to the mix and watch out. After it was all said and done, Tony said to me, "There is no way you would have been able to do the session alone." Really? I thought;)

Catching up

Lots has happened in the past few weeks...

Jen and Greg from Croft and Campbell are moving out of the studio. I am so sad about this first bit of news. I have enjoyed working with them so much. They decided they weren't using the camera room and are making a few changes to their business. While I am happy for them, I still want to be selfish and keep them. I'm speaking with a few other photographers in hopes to be able to stay at the studio. I enjoy it there and am not quite ready to move out.

Artie, our new puppy moved in.

My little sis Cait turned 30! Happy belated Birthday old lady. And she'll be back in town for a quick weekend visit.

There are a few other exciting new things happening at Jamie Fodale Photography. You'll just have to keep posted until they are official.

One thing I can mention now is a feature article in The Bump a new local maternity magazine. It is a free publication owned by the same company as, a helpful wedding web site for the bride to be. If you see it in stores pick one up for me. The Knot also has a web site for and The article will contain images from a maternity and new born session of twins. I photographed them almost a year ago! I can't wait for their first birthday session. Two one-year olds and a cake! Messy, but fun! here is their new born session and also the maternity session.

I'm still offering this photo class. If you're interested let me know asap.
Take care
