He's Come Out of Hiding

May 17, 2010

Nick Deck Boards WM

It has been a long time since this little guy has stepped in front of the camera, but I was lucky enough to catch him "in the mood" this weekend. He is way overdue for an update here on the blog, so I thought I would take this opportunity to fill you in on the latest:)

Model Material wm

He is growing like a weed.........I cannot believe how tall he has gotten........his Dad is 6 foot and I believe Nick has his genetics.....luckily!!!

Lots of angles Wm

Nick stays busy on the weekends with his friends. He has become such an outgoing kid....gone are the days of the child that clung to his Mom's leg and buried his head when someone looked at him.

He is thoroughly enjoying his electric guitar!! He has been taking lessons since his birthday in January and he is doing really well:)

Nick and a good friend in his class are taking lessons at the same studio. The two of them are working on a special song to play for their class on the last day of school. Their teacher thought it would be fun for them to bring their guitars in the last day and show the class "what they've got".

The boys are very excited and have decided that they are going to play "School's Out For the Summer". Pretty appropriate, don't you think?

Nick and Rudy2texture wm

As we were taking pictures, someone decided to get in on the action....our dog Rudy!!! He gave us a little scare this past week, he was pretty sick, but one trip to the vet to get some meds and he is all better and back to himself!! Apparently he ate something in the yard.......we still are not sure what it was, but whatever it was wreaked some havoc on his stomach. Poor little guy!! We are all happy to see him bouncing around the house again:)

Rudy was not the only one who wanted to jump in some pics....... Our party was crashed by a little girl who normally runs when she sees the camera.....

I am going to post those pictures on Wednesday.....some of my favorite brother/sister photos EVER!!!

Hope you all have a Happy Monday and a wonderful week!!

Wow is he really getting big. Why must they grow up so quickly? I just want them to stay small for just a little while longer.

These pictures are beautiful. Nick is really growing into such a handsome young man. I can't wait to see the pictures you have of both your babes. I'm sure they're gorgeous!

Hope you have a wonderful week!

Wow...I think he has changed even since the last time you got pictures of him!! He sure is growing up. In a blink of an eye he will be all graduated and off on his own...sad I know!
P.S. Love your deck...I haven't ever seen that color of railing before...I was going to do white but I love that!

Jodee said...

How fun to get some new pictures of Nick. He is such a handsome guy! Of course, I love his brown eyes!

So glad to hear Rudy is feeling better. I completely forgot to ask how his trip to the vet turned out! He and Ozzy could definitely hang together!

Hope you have a great week!

Biana said...

Wow these photos are amazing. I love the light colours, very fresh..

I'm so glad he agreed to step into the spotlight this week (and on the last day of school, too). Glad to hear he's still enjoying the guitar lessons... alas, the Tongginator is now begging for drum lessons. Ack!

What a handsome guy! And beautiful pics. I have some photography questions for you if you have a moment this week~ Happy Monday!

Michelle R Photography said...

I know I say this every time you post pics of him, but he is SUCH a handsome boy!! These are such great pictures of him, Lisa. I can't wait to see pics of your two cuties on Wednesday!

Are you able to attend his school program? I am sure I am not the only one who would love to see video of Nick's debut performance! He will probably have a fan club. :)

Have a great week, Lisa!!

Such a handsome guy. I love this shots. I also love their choice of song for the end of year guitar performance;)

I need to update some shots of Will too. He is going to be 13 in a few weeks!!!!!

redmaryjanes said...

Well, I would have to say that this session was worth the wait. What a handsome young man. These photos are excellent!

Lori Lynn said...

These are fantastic! You are so lucky that Nick is willing to sit through this with you. Each and every shot is fabulous. I especially like the one with the dog. You have such great angles and his poses are so natural. The colors are soft, yet masculine. Nice job.

Cindy said...

Beautiful pic and what a handsome man is he going to be. I love reading your blog and photography.

Jboo said...

Love seeing these great photos of Nick! They turned out great -- and Rudy also looks cute! The guitar sounds like fun and cool idea for the last day of school! Hope you have a great week!


Tutus and Choo-Choos said...

Great pictures of Nick! He is a handsome young man!

Shari said...

Love that he gave you a treat:) Nice to see Rudy jump in - you can never have enough photos of your pets. We're still trying to get the cat to sit still long enough to get a photo where she doesn't look evil:)
Can't wait to see what his little sister brings to the already adorable shoot:)

Shelly and Family said...

Oh Lisa ~ what great update on Nick and I too can't believe how "grown-up" this handsome young man is looking these days...(time just seems to be flying by...)

Anyway, LOVE the photos of him and from the sound of things all in all you had a great weekend. Glad to hear Rudy is feeling better & Take care my friend...

Love, Shell

Robin said...

Wow, don't these boys of ours grow fast! Great pictures.


Mary Lou said...

I know I'm preaching to the choir when I say this but he is REALLY, I mean REALLY handsome....Thanks Nick for letting your mom share with us.

Wanda said...

Wow Lisa, you are right - he's gotten so tall and mature. I laughed at the description of him clinging to your leg. Oh....so that stage really doesn't last forever?!

Beautiful captures of a very handsome dude!

Enjoy your week.

ellieshine said...

Oh Lisa, these photos are just gorgeous. Your little boy is growing up so quickly! The electric guitar - how cool :) School's Out For Summer will be the perfect song!

Virginia said...

He is one talented and handsome young man. Great photos. I LOVE the one of him and Rudy, and I'm glad the doggy is feeling better.

Kim said...

love ya

Unspoken said...

He is so handsome. I can't believe how mature his face is getting!

Dita said...

Oh, wow...he sure is growing like a weed. Look at those legs!
You are going to beating the girls off with a stick. All that handsomeness AND a guitar player...GROUPIES...need I say more. I actually might be his first groupie!

Nick is just such a beautiful child!

Can't wait to see brother and sister pictures on Wednesday.

And, it was so nice to see a Monday post from you today!

Happy Monday!

Dita Darling

Casey said...

Wow Lisa!! He is so so handsome!! And he has grown a ton since your last photo shoot with him. I'm so glad things are going so well for him. Ah - to be a preteen again!! :)

I'm also admiring your deck. lol. We need to redo our deck, but our kitchen is taking the forefront right now. But I love how you use the design of the deck / architectural detail in your photos. Stunning...

I think I'm going to be using your blog designer for my photography blog. I need a single column design. Mine will probably be pretty simple, but I'm looking forward to it.

Hope you are doing well... looking forward to Wednesday!

Sylvia said...

Your little boy is not so little anymore! What a handsome boy!

We can never get our dog Bailey to sit still for a picture! Rudy looks like he is very comfortable having his pic taken!

Valerie said...

The pictures are amazing, both of yor kids are just gorgeous.

I am so happy to hear, you may actually get your referral; how exciting and wonderful.

The wait will make sense to you in every way when you get the child that was always meant to be yours, not to mention that the wait also allowed you to be in a position to receive your amazing Sarah.

You better start nesting and picking out names!

Mother of three!

Love Valerie

Nick is such a sweetie! So glad he was in a modeling mood! And I have never met Rudy! ADORABLE for sure. Glad he is all better!

Rachelle said...

Beautiful images of a very handsome young man. I so enjoy this age (from afar) - - when the kid becomes a young man. It must have been a great shoot.

Lisa said...

He is so handsome and growing up so fast! Wow!! Loved seeing Rudy in the picture too! I still think it's funny that we both have Rudy's in our family, hee! hee! : )
