Turkey Trottin'

So my girlfriend Marina told me a while ago that she was participating in this "turkey run" thing on initial thought was why would you want to do that to yourself on the exact day set aside for gluttony and laziness? But after our TNT coach led run on Saturday where me and Charlie threw DOWN on some Stacks post run...(the coach told us to make sure we re-fueled after runs-ummmm wow, I might have taken it a little too far) I had a change of heart (and stomach.)

yeah, I ate all that.....and what???

ummm...please note the iPhone app to track your food intake....of particular enjoyment...the "i ate this" button. THAT'S why I NEED an iphone...I will never tire of totally unnecessary iphone apps.

so anyhoo, I thought about it afterward and aside from the fact that the TNT coaches highly suggest a "trial" marathon before the real much more would I enjoy diving into a massive Thanksgiving dinner if I had just previously ran (jogged) a 5k??

So, YEP! Thanksgiving morn' you will find me there with my posse turkey trotin' my calories away in preparation for the FEAST!!! (oh and of COURSE my upcoming marathon too!)

Layla Bug Sneak Peek-from

I mean, seriously? How cute is she? And she's even cuter in person. (shocking I know) This little love bug is all smiles and has the most gentle spirit! I only put a few up because this shoot was for the holidays and I don't to show too much before Christmas! I love love love winter shoots!!!

"Can you handle twins?" from

That was the question a mommy-client posed to me a couple of weeks ago.

me- "Absolutely!"

her-"They're 2 and a half-does that make a difference?'

me-"Nope! It'll be a blast!"

And it was! We rode the train, and the carousel and fed the ducks-all in one photoshoot! That's the key to capturing little ones....just follow them and play...they'll take care of the rest!

Thank you Sellers Family for a lovely Saturday morning!!

This little lady was ABSOLUTELY adorable! She kept exclaiming in her ****teenytiny*** little voice through the whole shoot "COME ON BABY JAGUAR! WE GOTTA SAVE THE MONKEY!" (if you have kids, you know exactly what her favorite show its!)

Welcome to the new blog!!!

A looong time ago (shamefully long) I had an active blog under Lindsey Freitas Photography. When we made the switch over to BellaLu and launched the new site, the blog kind of got lost in translation. Despite my husband's incessant concern for when the blog will be up and running again I let weeks and then months go by. So here we are again...starting fresh!!! And as always, please share with us your thoughts and feedback and keep up with us as we update as much as possible!!!
