Sneak Peek for Jenn!

I really should be getting my kiddos in bed, but I couldn't help myself! I had to edit a few and put them up for her to see! It took 2 tries today, but we finally got Miss Madeleine to cooperate. She clearly isn't a big fan of portraits!! Hope you like your tease Jenn!!


Not liking the tutu thing!!

This is my favorite!!

Everyone loves photo gifts!

I'm so excited to offer a new line of photo jewelry and other gifts, and just in time for Christmas, too.

You can select one of the 4 necklaces offered that best suits your style - Hodge Podge, Tiny Treasures, Classic or Ms. Cleaver - or just go nuts and buy all 4! Choose your necklace length from short (17-18") or long (19-20").

Each soldered charm is attached to a sterling silver toggle and is made from two 2mm glass pieces and comes in 3 sizes: 1 1/2x1 3/8 (shown), 1 1/2 x 1 or 1x1.

Also available are 6x6 travertine tiles and 2x3 custom ornaments. You could do soccer teams, sonograms, newborn pictures & announcements, wedding invites and Christmas cards from years past; the possibilities are endless!

For a limited time, booking a session for September will get you 10% discount on any boutique item! But Wait! That's not all! I have more jewelry and gift options coming soon - so be sure and check back to see the one-of-a-kind gifts Maddie Dean Photography will be offering!

View from the other side

It's not often that I'm in front of the camera. I prefer the back side - that way my face isn't viewable (specifically my double chin) Since mom was down visiting Mike and I took advantage of her and went on our 1st date since Madeline was born! It was nice to get out again as a couple. On the rare occasion when we make it out we never have pictures of us - kind of difficult to get Aiden to take a picture and just a hassle to use the tripod-and-remote method. We finally have a picture of the two of us - so thanks Jackson, you did good dude.


It only took him three times to get a good shot! We may have 2 photographers in this family!!!

Nice shot of me Jackson.... but what about the rest of Mike?

I promise Mike is really looking at Aiden. He wanted in the picture at the last minute

Yeah Jackson! 3rd time's the charm buddy!

The Big Bash....

Poor little Man... Aiden's 2nd birthday was rained-out. The storms rolled in around 10:30 Saturday morning and still haven't left! God had it all under control though. Because of the rain not many could come which was a blessing-in-disguise as we invited those who did show up over to the house! YIKES! I would have freaked if everyone had shown up. We had a nice time though and thankfully Aiden was really too young to understand that he wasn't going to swim!


his super-cool monkey-cupcake-tree-cake
(yes, I made his cake!)

blowing out TWO candles with daddy

yummyyyyyy - cupcake!

nothing like a little capri sun to wash it all down!

fun presents for a fun little man!

he was soo cute giving everybody good-bye hugs!

My baby boy is TWO :(

I can't believe that my sweet little boy is two years old today - talk about something being bitter-sweet. I've throughly enjoyed watching him grow and change but I sure do miss my baby! Where has time GONE? It still seems strange to think about having children of my own but Aiden has been such a joy in our lives. He truly is a treasure from Heaven and I cannot imagine my life without him! My family is in town already and Mike's parents are one their way so Aiden should have loads of attention on his special day! Tomorrow morning is the big swim party - woohoo!! So guess that means I need to stop updating and get to baking and icing!!!


Just a few minutes old...

6 months....

One year....


18 months.....

Pretty close to 2 years...

Here's the slide show from his 1st year. I'm such a slacker - I haven't finished his second year yet (been *kinda* busy with a newborn) But I promise to get it done soon...

Tyler + Jenny :: Love

I came home to visit my parents just for this weedding. Jenny's parents are dear family friends and I used to babysit the bride and her brothers. Talk about making a person feel old!!! Jenny and her mom asked that I take a few pictures through out the day: bridal luncheon, hair and makeup, ect. It was nice to not have the pressure of being the "official" photographer. I was able to just relax and have fun. I hope that I got them some images that captured the day. Thanks Jenny and Donna for having me tag along. And to Jenny & Tyler - I wish you guys nothing but the best!!

We went to Canadian today so that Nannie could show of the great-grandbabies at bridge club and poor Aiden was scared silly when we walked in the door and 12 old women started fussing over him!! At least Madeline was too young to realize that it's not cool to have your cheeks pinched :) After they left my best friend Amanda and her husband John stopped by for a visit. They were in town to see Amanda's new nephew (7.28.08 and weighing 10 lbs 10 oz!!!!!!!) I hadn't seen her since Christmas -We really hate living so far apart! She got to meet Madeline and her husband was finally able to meet Aiden. I think John was more partial to Maddie though - hoping it gave him some baby fever!! Snapped a few pictures from our visit and since I have some faithful blog readers who accuse me of not sharing enough, so I figured I'd put them here!
