TickledPink studios bio picture
  • Welcome to my blog!

    Hello! My name is Kim. I created this blog as a place for me to compile all of my, well, everything. I have been trying to separate "work" and "personal" in the blogging world for way too long. So here at tickledpink studios, you will be sure to find a little bit of everything. The reason I picked up my first "real" camera to begin with was so I could learn to capture the moments in my every day life that, unfortunately will not last forever. You will mostly see pictures on this blog, but don't be surprised if you happen upon some fun adventures, family journaling, graphic design, crafting, cooking, baking, organizing, chaos, funny kid quotes, and anything else I feel like doing, saying or creating at the moment. Years from now, I hope to look back and be "tickled pink" because I did such a good job documenting the things in my life that make me enjoy it.

Our Family Pictures 2014

As stressful as pictures are, I never regret doing them!  The kids actually did WAY better than I thought they would.  I prepped Lola and Hudson beforehand by explaining to them how important pictures are to me and how being really good during the pictures could be their Christmas present to me. As far as Faye is concerned, we were lucky. She got a great nap and a good snack right before.. We used a tripod and remote again for the family shots.  One of these days I’m going to hire someone though because it’s not quite the same… But close enough! 😉

Could get much more candid than these. I love all of them.

Our Faye Faye turned 2!

Our ‘sweet-n-spicy’ Faye Faye turned 2 last month!  She is so fun, crazy, funny, verbal, hot and cold, physical, happy, beautiful, excited, spontaneous, etc. etc.. We love her.  Moments with her are never dull.  She LOVES, bubblegum, “mokeys” {aka rice milk}, paci, wearing “beauful” dresses {every.single.day.}, riding bikes, Angelina Ballerina, Shawn the Sheep, The Frozen soundtrack {aka “prozen” or “ye-it go”}, dancing, running, her brother and sister, skateboarding with Dad, and tagging along with all the neighbor kids. She loves going to nursery on Sunday and is starting to tell me about her little friends that she plays with there.  Men are no longer scary to her and she often points at older gentlemen wherever we are and yells “a papa!” Today in Costco, she walked up to the nice man in front of us and made his day by grabbing his hand to hold and say hello. She LOVES playing with doggies and has absolutely no fear {of pretty much anything}. Her favorite place is the beach and also requests to “go gym” often {too bad my first trimester knocked me off my feet and we don’t do much of the gym right now}.  She loves reading stories or just looking at them. She thinks she is the center of the universe and does whatever she wants whenever she wants. 🙂 She has yet to learn what the meaning of “no” is… We love and adore our Faye Faye to pieces and are so grateful to have her in our family. {P.S. If you ask her what her name is, she says “Paye-Paye”}

{disclaimer on the photos: I got a new camera and a few new lenses and decided to ‘practice’ with her.. I am in LOVE with them, but am still getting used to my new equipment}

She wears her emotions on her sleeve. She makes THE BEST faces…

She was a little peeved that Hudson and Lola took off up the hill without her… ha ha!

This is her excited face.. Excited to play at the beach… {also, we were checking out a new photo spot and it happened to be mid-day (worst lighting), so please don’t judge too harshly ;)}
