I'm trying to make a come back on the boards after a loooong hiatus. I was TTC with my ex-DH for a few years and didn't get anywhere in the baby department, but did thoroughly enjoy the photography community here. I am now re-married, still TTC and finally got a doc to give me a u/s and diagnose me with PCOS and hope to start clomid or similar course of action in 2011.
So, I'm Lauren, formerly lauren.groom and Eclection Studios Photography & Design. My last name is now Flores and I am now specializing in Maternity, Newborn, Baby, and Child photography as Little Flores Photography. I have be re-branding my studio and portfolio and am about to launch my new website. I also just brought home my new "baby" a Nikon D700 - I'm so proud!
Here's one of my first shots with the D700 of my ::gulp:: almost 11 year old DD

I just notified BluDomain to "go live" last night so I expect it to be public this week. So excited!
Also, we founded a pg.org group on Flickr a few years ago and I still moderate it. I only approve users who have an active and relevant pg.org user ID. There are a lot of "oldies" still adding to the pool every now and then, but it would be awesome for those who've come along in the past 1-2 years to join in the fun too!
Hey Lauren! I remember you!!!!! I saw that group on Flickr and didn't know how active it was. I'll definitely join in on that one! Not sure if you remember me, but I've been here (on pg.org) since the beginning, and I know I was posting here on this board when you were still here. Anyhow, I can't believe how old your daughter is! Time flies, doesn't it? She's beautiful!
I'm really behind on EVERYTHING in my life, and posting on this board (among others here) is taking a back seat while I attempt to catch up. But I wanted to reply to this because I'm happy to see you back. Congrats on your new marriage. I really hope that TTC is successful for you in 2011, fingers crossed that Chlomid does the trick.
The group used to be more active, but I'm sure it can be revived. I already approved your request to join
There also was a 365 of PG.org group that's still out there, I don't remember who moderated it. It might be a cool group to join to start the year fresh for anyone who wants to do a 365 seires.
And, holy cow I can't believe Jack is 2!! I remember how you worked and worked his 1 year cake smash with and the white balancing - you didn't give up until you got them perfect! from your siggy pics I can see you have evolved and grown wonderfully! I look forward to seeing more.
Hi there! I remember you too, but I'm guessing I was at the point of lurking/soaking up as much as possible when you were more active here, so you might not remember me.
Welcome back, and can't wait to take a look at your website!
Welcome back!!!! You were one of my idols when I started posting here 2 yrs ago.

Hi Lauren! It's great to see you back. Your daughter is oh so grown up. I can't wait to see more of your pictures here. You were definitely an inspiration to me when I first started here.
