Happy Mother's Day {Mother's Day}

Hope you all had a wonderful, blessed Mother's Day. My family spent the day at my sister's as usual, and our wonderful sons cooked lunch for me, sis, my mother and daughter in law and assorted menfolk. I don't know who my son learned to cook from 'cause it sure wasn't me...but he and his cousin did a great job! Saturday, May 9th would have been my late husband's 55th birthday so Gigi (our granddaughter) and I decided Pops still needed a birthday cake. I decided to do cupcakes instead, not realizing my muffin tin had gone missing. So, they came out a bit wobbly to put it mildly...I wanted to show them to you in all their misshapen glory and to prove my point that a cook I am not! Oh well, at least my chocolate covered strawberries came out good!

We did a few pics in the backyard and here is one of my beautiful daughter in law with my little Gigi (who's getting a brother this fall!). She has learned to "cheese" it up (thanks Aunt Jen for that one!) but 2.5 is such a cute age and I know her Pops is smiling down on her and how much she's grown these last 11 months.

Spring Cleaning / Digital Negative Sale

Okay, time to make room in my office...so I'm having a sale....thru May 20th (they'll be gone after that time, I promise!)....for sale all the digital negs (all the images you were shown in your gallery)...ready to be archived for your family heirlooms or sized at 5x7 and ready to print. If you wanted more pictures from your session but just couldn't afford everything (and who can...?) this is a great opportunity to get it all.

To get all the info you'll need (cost, how to take care of your cd of images, where to print, etc) simply email me at cjzee@sbcglobal.net and I'll get back to you asap! I have edited out in the past so I can't guarantee every session in the last 8 years is still available but I will definitely check and see!

I will tell you this much...they are dirt cheap! The sale applies to all sessions done through 2008.

Cougar Crush for Cathy! {Fort Worth}

Okay, I admit it...I have a major "Cougar Crush" on Alex Ruiz, the lead singer for Del Castillo. A friend of mine introduced me to their music the week before they appeared at Main Street Arts Festival. He took me to the festival and knew someone who knew the band and I got to go backstage and meet them. I bought every cd they had and a couple of tee shirts! I believe in supporting the artists whose work you enjoy (okay it didn't hurt that they are all gorgeous and I wanted to meet them!). Alex even autographed my tee with #1 Angel...aah. I had to wipe the drool off my mouth when they were playing. My favorite song of their's is a beautiful ballad called "Castles"...there's a video on youtube but the quality is not great so check it out on Amazon for better quality. They are friends with Robert Rodriquez, the hot director/producer in Austin and Hollywood so their new video should be amazing. When its ready I'll post it here, I seem to be really into music lately. So here I am with my new favorite singer Alex....:)
