  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hi, I'm Linsey Stuckey. And it’s no secret that I love taking pictures. I went from being an attorney to a stay-at-home mom to a natural light photographer. I love looking at the world through the lens of my camera and capturing moments that most people might otherwise miss.

    And yes, it's true! We had our third child in November, a baby girl. She's utterly adorable. And while I love my clients, because our kiddos are so little right now, I'm going to take a few years off to spend more time with my family. It was a hard decision to make, but it's worth it. Your kids are only little once. I say cherish each and every moment.

    Of course I'll still be blogging and shooting (What can I say?! Pictures make me happy), so I hope you'll stick around. I also have a few exciting things in the works, one of which should be finished this January. So excited about that!!!

    Happy 2012!!!

52 on Friday (7) Love

With Valentine’s Day still in the air, it’s only fitting that this week’s Fifty-two on Friday theme be Love!  And what do my husband and I love more than anything in the entire world?!  Our three little kiddos.  They’re my whole world.  It’s amazing to me how much my heart continues to expand with each and every child.  Just when I think it isn’t possible to love them any more, the next day my love for them grows.  I love their little faces and their little expressions.  They are so silly, so happy, and just love being alive!!!  Fill the room with a dozen or so balloons and stick them in their matching Valentine’s jammies, and they couldn’t be happier. Even our littlest is starting to smile and giggle.  Love. Love. Love.

52 on Friday (6) Letting Go of Perfect

This week’s Fifty-two on Friday theme is Letting Go of Perfect!  And really, thank goodness for projects like this that just let me break free of my “everything’s gotta look perfect” mentally and capture my kids just how they are, nuttiness, messy faces, and all.  I don’t have enough pictures of just them being them.

My daughter, as cute as she looks all dollied up in dresses, sometimes goes for a style all her own. Just last week she came prancing down the stairs in none other than a bright green sweater, pink sweat pants, purple Uggs, and a gigantic red headband from her Snow White costume.  And the words out of her mouth?!  “Look at me Mommy!  Aren’t I pretty?!”  Yes Sweet Pea, you are very pretty!  Most beautiful!  And I grabbed my camera.  But what I never suspected was that these photographs would be some of my all time favorite pictures of my daughter.  They’re completely her, nothing styled, nothing planned, just her.

1. Love those purple Uggs. Can you tell they are on the wrong feet?!

2. Love that she always wants to go out wearing her ginormous Snow White red bow on top her head.

3. Love that she has her own little mismatched style and is so confident.

4. Love that when she wears sweaters she insists on having just one button buttoned.

5. Love the little saunter in her walk.

6. Love that she tried to cut her own bangs three weeks ago (okay, maybe I didn’t love that :o).

 

And my little boy is just as nutty.  If he could have it his way, he’d run around all day without a shirt on, covered in food . . . in this case, chocolate pudding.  Yep, I had to let go out perfect here too!  But, these too are some of my favorite pictures of him.  It’s just my little boy being a boy, chocolate face and all!  I love them both to pieces!

52 on Friday (5) On the Shelf

This week’s Fifty-Two on Friday theme is On the Shelf.  My kids love HEB and grabbing things off the shelves. Next to Disneyland, our local HEB market may be the happiest place on earth.   And it’s easy to see why.  They are greeted at the door with a shiny red balloon (although not yesterday due to a helium storage).  The shopping carts are in the shapes of little cars.  It’s as if the kids have their own designated race course through the aisles.  There’s food samples all throughout the store (orange juice, soup, pizza, sushi, tortillas, cookies, ham, crackers, soda, skillet meals, etc.)  My kids literally eat lunch here.  And they each get to pick one treat to take home.  Hayley was so excited when she found her “Dora cereal” that she did a little happy dance right in the aisle.  Check-out is the best part because each kid receives two “Buddy Bucks,” which means two spins at the wheel and a chance to win the ever-coveted sticker!  Yes, my son likes to display his proudly!

52 on Friday (4) Handmade

This week’s Fifty-Two on Friday theme is Handmade.  And thank goodness for Fifty-Two on Friday projects for getting my rear in gear and completing a handmade project I started over two years ago.  Yep, two years ago (just before I got into photography) I started making matching aprons for my daughter and me.  Well . . . photography soon took over my life and I never finished those aprons.  Two years passed.  Two years!  Yep, I’m embarrassed to admit it.  But now those aprons are done and done!!!

52 on Friday (3) Refreshing

This week’s 52 on Friday theme is Refreshing.  And even in January here in Texas it can get pretty warm outside.  So when I asked the kids who wanted to make some lemonade all hands went up, “Me!  Me!  I want to make some lemonade!”  Here’s to a refreshing glass of lemonade!
