I just read about this story and thought I had to share. This sweet family just lost thier little girl Ruby to liver failure and they need all the help they can get. Please check out thier site, read their story, share with your friends, donate, or buy one of these beautiful hair accessories to support this family. My heart hurts for this family. This story definitely makes me value and cherish every minute I have with my little girls even more. Please help support this family!

Can you see my little models? So fun! I didn't do this shoot, but it was so fun to be apart of this and see it at Pavillions! I had actually never seen this magazine before, but it looks pretty great! Lots of fun ideas! Check it out HERE or pick it up at any newsstand. Fun!
Head over to my Photography Blog to see how you can help this sweet little girl. Katelyn is blind and is undergoing vision treatment in China to help her hopefully see someday! Her family is doing everything they can to raise the 80,000 dollars they need to make this happen for Katelyn. There is currently an Auction going on with a bunch of fun things to bid on from people trying to help! I'm participating and offering a Portrait Session as well as $100 Print credit to the lucky winner. Head over to Michelle Photography to learn more about Katelyn and see where you can bid on my photography package or so many other things! Goodluck and thanks for helping if you can! 100% of all profits will go straight to Katelyns family to help cover her treatments. Also check out other ways to help on Katelyn's blog, you can donate items for the auction, or just donate straight to her fund!
Just a little update... Mika is getting so big! She'll be 1 in less than a month which I'm really sad about! She looks like a little girl to me already! She's still the happiest little girl I've ever met and is constantly smiling all day at everything and everyone! And she still has that big hair that I try to tame everyday, but still have people constantly asking me why I don't do her hair.... ahhhh.. I try people! haha.
Maddy and Mika are starting to play more and more with each other. Here they are going shopping for toys at the grocery store with their little purses in hand. So fun to hear them giggle with each other! Maddy can do no wrong to Mika who things her big sister Maddy is the funniest person in the whole world. She even laughs at her when she is crying. Pretty funny.
And the dress I finally made, well this is the tester dress for the girls easter dresses. I think I have it down now and know where I need to tweak it to make it what I want(longer shoulder ties, longer dress, smaller ruffle, etc) . Love the flower though! Pretty much the whole reason I wanted to make this dress!
And! My wonderful Grandma gave me a surger so it took half the time! No folding and ironing seams here! Except the hem. Super easy. This is my kind of dress to make. It's almost impossible for me to try to make anything that would take longer than this with kids...
Maddy is so lucky to have such a close relationship with her Grandma Nguyen. I'm so glad she is getting the opportunity to learn Vietnamese and learn some of the Vietnamese culture. I especially love these cute AoDai dresses! They are just beautiful! When I got married to Tony I got to where one as well as all of the girls in my family. The colors are so beautiful! I love that I got to experience a traditional wedding ceremony.
Poor Mika is still sick with a double ear infection and 2 teeth coming in, so she didnt' get a dress this year and has to stay home, but Maddy was so excited that she was going to get to see dragon dancing tonight and wear such a beautiful dress! Thank you Grandma and Grandpa Nguyen!
Maddy's poses crack me up.. I never taught her this. Seriously. I think she's been hanging out with Grandma Nuttall and Nguyen too much! The year of the cat! Maddy's bff or "her baby" Mungo.
Happy February 1st! It's been awhile since I've posted! I did another fun shoot of my girls! Check out more pics on the blog! Hope everyone is doing well and getting their Valentine's ready. Check out my blog for more pics of these cute girls and some really cute friends!Love this girl!Sweet, Silly, Smiley Mika!
Tony and I have been happily married since July 8, 2006. We welcomed Maddy into our family April 2008, and just had our sweet baby girl Mika this last March. We couldn't be happier to begin our family with such a sweet and happy little girls. Please also check out my photography website at www.momentsbymichelle.com.
