Momma & Me Mini Session for Charity!

I hope everyone had a fabulous Mothers Day.

What a great turnout we had last weekend for the big Momma & Me fundraising event! Though we didn't reach our full money raising goal I am still super excited we were able to raise $800.00 for Team G Childhood Cancer Foundation

I wanted to give a special thanks to  Harmony Birth and Family in Campbell and all the moms who booked and supported the special "Momma & Me" event. You helped support a great local cause. Photos will be on their way soon!

Lets do it again next year!

"Momma & Me" Mothers Day Mini Sessions 2016

I cannot imagine my life without my children, I cannot imaging watching them go through the pain and suffering of cancer. My heart breaks for those who do have to watch their children go through it and for those who have lost their children to it. Lets fight childhood cancer together!

I am so incredibly excited to announce that in honor of Mothers Day 2016 Teeny Tiny Moments is teaming up with Harmony Birth & Family in Campbell to try and raise at least $1500 for Team G Childhood Cancer Foundation. 
We will be hosting a "Momma & Me" mini session on May 7th at Harmony to celebrate a mothers love for her children. Each $100 session fee will be donated to Team G and moms will receive 2 FREE 5x7's in addition to a Facebook cover photo. There are limited spots available so make sure you don't procrastinate!

Im so in love with the great images from Dodson's photo session. Such a handsome boy. It took a while for him to get sleepy but once he did we got my favorite shots of him and his daddy.

Christmas Mini Photo Sessions

Christmas Mini Sessions are coming along beautifully. There's still time to book your session but hurry because they're filling fast! This year its at the beautiful Edenvale Park located behind Hayes Mansion. 

Nevaeh

.

Last week was a Newborn session with beautiful baby girl Nevaeh at 10 weeks.

Posing can tend to be a bit difficult with newborns over 10 days old but she was great! And such a happy girl.  Her Daddy was a big Dungeons and Dragons fan so we captured some special images just for him. I love it when I'm able to add something special for the Family it makes the images much more personal.

Here are a few my favorites from the session..

DIY Cozy Coupe Paint Job & Photo Prop

.

For this project I wanted to re-create a Christmas photo I saw using a Little Tykes Cozy Coupe car and a few christmas props. In order to re-make the image I needed to paint the cozy coupe car festive colors. Its easy to do if you want to make one too.

Heres how to do it.


Supplies Needed:                                                                                                        

  • Little Tykes Cozy Coupe car
  • Rust-Oleum or Krylon spray paint in the color of your choice. (Be sure to get the kind that says it adheres to plastic)
  • Medical mask
  • A bucket
  • Soap
  • Water
  • Scrubbing pads and or brushes
  • Masking tape
  • Newspaper
  • A tarp or old sheet

STEP 1

Find an old Cozy Coupe car. Don't forget it doesn't need to be pretty since were going to repaint it anyway. Try searching garage sales, craigslist, your local flea market, Facebook swap groups or maybe you already have one you would like to use. The cheaper the better! I found mine for $3 on a Facebook swap group.


Step 2

Gather your supplies. I had most of the supplies around the house and you probably will too. I did have to purchase my spray paint but its fairly inexpensive and you don't need a ton of it.

Make sure that you purchase a spray paint that is specifically for plastic or one that says it adheres to plastic. you can find it at any Home Depot, hardware or craft store. Pick a color or colors that will work well for your taste. I went with Apple Red in gloss for the body of the car and Ivory Silk in Satin for the top of the car since I was going to use it in Christmas photos.


Step 3

Before we get to the actual spray painting we will need to wash the car thoroughly using the soap, water, bucket, and scrubbing pads or brushes. I couldn't find my scrubbing brush so I just used the scrubby pads and they worked great. Spray your car down and scrub the entire thing with soapy water, get all the nooks and crannies. If there are any stickers or decals on the car scrub those off too. I had a little trouble with my decals so I busted out some steel wool.


Step 4

After you've allowed the car to dry completely it will time to use the masking tape and newspaper. If your using multiple colors like I am you will want to mask off the top or bottom of the car and attach the newspaper. I didn't worry about it too in this step since I was going to use the second color anyways and that would cover up any over spray. Don't forget to cover your wheels too!

All taped off and ready for paint.

Step 5

Finally the fun part! Get your spray paint and medical mask on. This would also be a good time to lay down a tarp or old sheet if you wanted to. Now spray away. You can do as many coats as you feel necessary the paint I used dried pretty quickly so I was able to get 2 or three coats on it in no time.

Tips: If you have never used spray paint before the best way to apply it is to make sure you aren't too close to your object with the can. Hold the can 10 to 12 inches or so away from your object and move the can back and forth while you spray. If you are too close while spraying it will cause dripping, puddling and splotchiness which will probably leave you with an unhappy result.

Step 6 (optional)

You will only need to do this step if you chose to use 2 colors... Once your car is dry, reverse your masking job to protect your new paint from the second color. Now spray away again using as many coats as you like.

Step 7

The end result. Remove all masking tape and newspaper and take that annoying mask off. Now admire your Cozy Coupe with its awesome new paint job!

Shiny & new!

Shiny & new!

Red and white fits much better than orange and yellow with my Christmas theme plus the car looks clean and new.

Step 8

If your using your car as a Christmas photo prop like I am find yourself some christmasy props to go with it. 


Step 9

Get some pictures of your fabulous work! Take pictures yourself or hire a professional photographer to take beautiful images for your christmas cards, special event, holiday or just because.


Total Cost:

Cozy Coupe: $3.00

1 Can Rust-Oleum Apple Red $3.98

1 Can Rust-Oleum Satin Ivory Silk $3.98

Mini Tree: 3.99

Wreath: 4.99

Total Without Props: $10.96

Total With Props $19.94

 


This was a fun, cheap & easy project to do and left me with a great prop that I can use in multiple ways in the future. The only difficult part about this project was keeping my kids out of the yard and away from the car while it dried. 

If you try this project I would love to see pictures of your work in the comments.

Trip To The Rose Garden

Today warrented a trip outdoors since yesterday we were pretty much cooped up all day. We decided on the beautiful San Jose Municipal Rose Garden with our good friends Jen, Sam & Gabriel. If you've never been its a beauty and worth a trip. Of course I forget my camera as we rush out the door. Mom Brain! At least I still got a few shots with the cell phone camera.

We had a great time running around, exploring, snacking (us parents would be lost without snacks!) and taking in the sweet rose scented air. Fox wanted to get into the fountain, he kept trying to get his leg through the fence saying and signing peeeese peese in his adorable baby voice. The grass was wet so our feet and clothes got soggy but we didn't care and never really do.
