Two posts are better than one!

Organizing really is a good thing! Two posts in one night... I will have to make this one short. My cat (Monte) (See Cone of Shame post a few months ago Ü) is asking very politely that I come to bed. He is such a cute cat. One of the best I have owned. He gets impatient when it is "bed time" and he meows at us until we come to bed.

Anyway... what I really meant to blog about...

More organizing lead me to find these Rhodie photos. I LOVE Rhodies when they are in bloom. They are so beautiful. One April morning I was working in my office and looked out my window (past the fake flowers (that are STILL there in July)) and saw the beautiful sunlight dancing on the flowers. That morning was so gorgeous. One of our first awesome days during such a long spring. The bees were buzzing around and I actually caught one of them in the flower. The morning was crisp, but the sun was warm on my face.

It's amazing what a couple of photographs can do. I am sitting here vividly recalling the morning. How I followed the bee from flower to flower to get that great shot. How vividly green the grass was. The fact that I was wearing my slippers. The fact that I walked my husband out to his car to give him a kiss goodbye... It is SO wonderful how 4 simple Rhodie photographs just brought tears to my eyes... made me remember a simple moment... a moment that I was so calm, so happy, so in tune with my camera and my passion and my love for my husband. WOW.... photography is so AMAZING.
I know I have said it before, and I will say it again... Thank you to every one of you who believes in me... who supports me... who inspires me... and especially to those who trusts me to capture the essence of their family through photography. You will never know how much it means to me to see your face light up when you see an image I created of your family. I truly love what I do. It fuels me. It makes me a better person. Thank you to each and every one of you.
With a heart full of happiness,

Where's Waldo???

First of all... I must apologize... 10 days between posts... that is just not acceptable. I'd fire myself, but then nothing would get done! Ü

I was just going through folders trying to get caught up on organizing photo files... blah blah blah... and I found these photos I took a couple months ago.

Out of the corner of my eye I saw something scurry... and it was this cute little possum. Now normally I don't think possums are cute... but this furry little baby one was KIND OF cute. I must admit that I was scared to death that at any moment his not so cute mother was going to come around the corner of my house and attack me... thankfully she never appeared... although that made me think, what if this poor baby is all on his own? :(

I hope that today finds you well. I hope you are enjoying your summer. And I wish for you a moment to sneak away and find some you time... just like Waldo did! Ü

Hottie McHotterson

On July 2nd I joined forces with several fantastic photographers to capture some awesome images! Willow found two models and hired a makeup artist, the models got ready at her studio, we took a few photographs there and then drove to Fort Steilacoom Park where we photographed and laughed and had a good time.

I am only featuring one of the two models today... I haven't had a chance to edit the photographs from the other model.

This is Michelli... Isn't she beautiful! Those eyes... captivating!

In the few hours I got to spend with her I learned:
She has a beautiful laugh
She doesn't like her smile
If you tell her to think about her boyfriend, you can get the most gorgeous smile from her
She owns her own business
She's a lot of fun

I hope I have the opportunity to visit with her again. I had such an awesome time during this photo shoot!

Hope everyone is enjoying the wonderful weather we are having!

Handsome Jackson

So, I did a preview of Jackson before, but saved my favorites for when mom got to see them in person at my home. Here are a few of those faves...

Talk about eyes that could melt your heart! This little guy is so sweet and I just had a great time photographing him. This last photograph, he had just loaned his bike to a friend and he didn't take his eyes off that bike except for a couple of moments where I coaxed him into a glance. Talk about serious!!!

I am looking forward to our late summer, early fall session. We will be taking family portraits and Lisa (Mom) and I have been talking about some great ideas that I think we are both very excited about! Keep checking back, we are planning to do quarterly photographs, so you can watch Jackson grow right along with me! Ü

Don't forget to comment! I love hearing from you and knowing that I am not just some crazy lady blogging to myself! (Alright, alright... we all know I am a little crazy! Ü)
