My little girl has arrived!!

Well friends, my little lady decided she wanted to stay put! Not sure how long she would have stayed if we didn't force her out!! I was induced on October 15th at 41 weeks and 1 day pregnant.  She was born after a GRUELING hour of drug free labor, not because I'm some kind of wonder mom or super hero but because the epidural DID NOT WORK! ugh! It was the most pain I've ever been in...but it was only an hour and it was totally worth it. I am so in love with my sweet little lady! 

Abi Grace is 7lbs 10oz and 20 inches of sweet baby girl!!

Recovery this time around is taking a lot longer than I hoped it would. But I'm enjoying snuggling with my little lady and watching the big kids play from the recliner. So blessed to have my parents here too, they have been incredibly helpful and I'm not sure how we would have done this without them! I'm also super thankful for the friends who have made us dinner and offered their help in so many ways. Sweet little Abi will be baptized tomorrow morning and we're so excited to have our family and friends here to witness her being welcomed into God's family!

Can't wait to share with you all the shirts I made for the kids!
Hopefully I'll have that post ready for you next Saturday (if not before!).

This little lady loves to sleep and I love to take her picture so it works out pretty well!!

You can see a few more photos on my photography website...some the same, some different.

What did you think of all my fun and crazy photos? I thought it was a lot of fun sharing a photo a day and when a little crazy sharing more in between. I also added an Instagram Board to my Pinterest PageLOL

While searching on Instagram, I found a great site that shared a list of 11 great places to print your Instagram Photos. I definitely Pinned it. You can see their list HERE

My favorite is Printstagram. It is very inexpensive and had some pretty cool products. I personally like the poster, tiny books and stickers.

Another cool site I found through a Instagram friend is Instacanvas. My gallery, soon to open if you vote for me, is http://instacanv.as/tarajo4
Please click on the photo below to go to the site. Then click on the yellow box that says "Request Gallery Opening".
Don't forget to check out that long list of where to print your Instagram photos. And always, thanks for reading my blog. I love all of your comments each week.

Photo App Love

So lately, I have been addicted to iPhone Photo apps and thought I would share some of my favorites with you all. I have been blowing up my iPhone camera for a few weeks now. I think my family thinks I am totally nuts, but I can't resist.

One of the best of course is Instagram. I am sure many of you have it too. If you want to check out my page, it's @tarajo4. Please do. It's so fun. Below are some of my favorite pics using Instagram.
I am equally in love with Instaframe as I am with Instagram. LOL I love that I can collage pics together, add text and filters all at once. YEAH! I made these photos with Instaframe.
More faves are Picfx and BigLens. They have really cool filters. You can even use some pretty fun focus techniques. I like these because you can either keep it basic or advanced.
With this photo, I used BigLens and Instaframe to add text.
BokehBooth and LensLight are really fun for adding Whimsical light layers to your photos. Endless fun with these apps. Oh My!
My two absolute faves from this technique.
I could share a million pics, but you can also check more out on my Instagram page. Again my name on there is @tarajo4. Please come, joing and comment on my fun photos. ;D

I also recently have been on MarbleCam and SphereLens. Very addictive. You will be playing with this a lot just to see how your pics will turn out with this effect. Here are a couple of mine.
A few more photo apps that I adore are....
LabelBox, FramUrLife, PhotoBorders, PicStich, RedStamp, PicCollage, PhotoAutomat, Diptic, Phonto, CaptionsPM,Cool Faces, Halftone and FilmDirector.

All are very entertaining. You will want to check them out!
