Hello There!

Hello You All!
My name is Natalie Franklin and this is my blog The Franklins.
You can find a little bit of everything here..but mostly a place where I enter my everyday photos into challenges and share my daily life as a wife and Mother to a two year old.
I LOVE photo challenges. I love to meet new bloggers by going through the link ups and blog hopping that way. It's so nice to see other people's life documented and their memories made!
My husband's name is Jonathon Franklin and he is a coal miner. I have a degree in Medical Transcription but spent a year working for two financial transcription companies in 2008 up until the birth of my son on December 7th, 2008. Since then I've enjoyed my days as a stay at home Mom to him They are both my world..my soul..my everyday and I respect my husabnd for EVERYTHING he has done for us and where we are in life. He is my rock, my strength and would absolutely do ANYTHING for me and he's proven to be the BEST friend any wife could ask of her husband and I am as much in love with him now as I was when we met and were sweethearts in high school. He would sacrifice anything for his family, he's a BIG family man and he has the biggest heart of any man I know (besides my Daddy;) and he is just oh so handsome! My son is his mini-me. He looks SOOO much like his Daddy it's ridiculous! But he's got Mommy's attitude which may or may not be a good thing. I am so proud of him and how smart he is! He is my little miracle..my gift from God..the most precious valuable thing in my life. My Dillon.
Now you're my WHOLE LIFE. Now you're my WHOLE WORLD.
Me and my Boy!
Top Photo is my husband Jon and Dillon, the next is me, myself (I) and my baby boy!

Now I have started my business, Natalie Franklin Photography..which was 'offically' started in mid-late fall last year. I enjoy photography, it is a passion of mine along with a LOT of other hobbies I've had over the years. Some being sewing, drawing, knitting and just being crafty all around. I enjoy a challenge and most of the time am my own worst critic but I always put my best foot forward and am proud of everything I do!
I've been blogging since January 7th of 2010 so I just recently celebrated my one year Bloggerversary! I've loved being apart of such a friendly community of aspiring photographers and awesome people with the greatest personalities. I am thankful for every single comment and every new follower friend I get..I love making new friends.
I will help anyone or give advice on anything if anyone needs it so if you would like to know anything I'd LOVE to help and if I can't I'd try to point you to someone who could! Thanks so much for stopping by and getting to know me!
If you want to contact me you can find my "contact" button at the top of this page and I will respond as quickly as possible! Thank you!
