I had been waiting to work with the Googins for quite a while. I DO have patience, but my excitement level was at a very high level. FINALLY the day came and boy did I have a blast! The day was like something out of a fairy tale. The location was amazing in both meaning to the Googins and view. The kids were ready for fun and I brought lollypops and balloons......!!!!! What more could I have asked for?!! We had a little over an hour of plain old fashioned fun. I think the only thing we were missing, was the picnic lunch at the end of this event! We laughed, ran, played and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings. I totally had round two of fun while going over their images again during the selection process and reminiscing about our time together. I look forward to working with this beautiful family again and can't wait to see where they take me next time!

No her name isn't Beautiful Day, Glorious Day or Sunny Day, but isn't Baby Day one of the most Beautiful little glorious balls of sunshine you have ever SEEN!? YES! I just absolutely could not stop taking pictures of her and lets not talk about all the cute props her mom kept pulling out. It was like a Holiday! I absolutely love taking pictures of newborns and Baby Day was one of the sweetest I have captured to date. I typically get at least one "smile" out of newborns during their shoot time, but this must have been one relaxing shoot for Baby Day because she smiled all the way through my time with her! You started smiling while reading this didn't you!? I KNOW! My face hurt after this shoot due to all the smiling and laughter that went on. She was just such a sweet little bean. Tell me she's not rockin' that cowgirl hat, lace dress and flower band?! One of the sweetest shoots I had last year for sure and what an honor it was to be the photographer, that Baby Day's parents chose to document such a miracle in their lives. I'll say it again..... you can't beat this job I have!
Well time SURE does fly when you are having fun! And in baby Dash's case, he must be partying every day because he's already turned one year old! Last time you saw baby Dash he was six months old and barring all for the world on a red chair. Now he's full of energy and giving his parents a run for their money! I had the privilege of spending some time with Dash, as well as Mom and Dad this time. Boy did we have fun trying to keep up with him. We didn't do such a good job of keeping up with his balloon and no he didn't eat the entire lolly. The street got to have some of the lollypop, but BOY did Dash enjoy what the street didn't get! I'll be heading out of town in a few days and I am sure when I get back he will have doubled in size. Don't you fear, I'll be right back in front of him with my camera as soon as possible! Don't you just want to squish his little cheeks?! I know right?!
"Oh my cuteness! We are gushing over the photos! Love them :) Thank you!"

SO, I have been working with Tara for about a year now. Not only have I been getting Mr. Lander in front of my camera and watching him grow BUT Tara gets me into gear and working out at least once a week. The woman is SERIOUS! She is ready to pop and I am sure she could out run me even at this stage in her pregnancy HA! As always, a year later I am still so excited to get in front of Tara, Lander and sometimes Stella :) with my camera. It's truly a great time. We were even almost thinking this shoot would not happen! We got to our location and it was covered in FOG!! EVERYWHERE but our location was beautiful and sunny...our spot...not so much. However, you wouldn't even know it, Tara was glowing and Lander was all smiles as always. They even made friends with a horse...well Tara did :) I absolutely can't wait to continue our shoots with the new little one that's about to make an appearance. STAY TUNED he'll be here any day now. AND I'll be there shortly after to start documenting his first year as a little brother, Landers' first year as a big brother and Tara's new life as the mother of two!!! Two boys.... ;

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Dash and his lovely family. Of COURSE you know from the moment I met him, I just knew I would need to get my camera in front of him. It took a few months but I finally got my chance and BOY was I happy with the results. I mean first of all it's Mr. Dash so of course the pictures were going to be delectable, but working with him was just a pleasure. He's a real sweet pea who was up for anything. With the help of mom and dear ol' dancing and singing dad; wardrobe and lack their of changes ;) location changes and prop changes didn't phase him one bit! I am just elated with the fact that I will be able to get in front of him every few months for the next year. SO, stay tuned for more from Dash. We are all going to get to watch this little man grow! How exciting!

I always like to blog about why I love what I do for a living and one of the MANY reasons is because I get to really know an entire family. When I say I get to know an entire family I mean, Mom, Dad, Sister, Brother, Grandma, Grandad, Cousins, etc. This is how I got to meet he lovely HILLS! My last blog about Moo lovin just so happens to be Sister/Sister in law and Niece/Cousin to the Hills! So, through Moo I got to meet the Hills and the rest is history! The Hills welcomed baby Ella into their family about six weeks ago and I got the pleasure of taking her first portraits and their first portraits as a family of four and it was totally my pleasure. I know trying to take the picture of a toddler who is ready for a nap and a newborn who wouldn't nap, wasn't feeling pictures and peed on momma so much I think she set a record doesn't SOUND like a lot of fun, but we totally had a great time and were cracking up during about 90% of this shoot......sweating and working hard to get shots during the remaining 10% of the shoot...but laughing and having a great time none the less! Again, I feel so honored in having been able to capture these litte ones and thank them for a fun time! High five guys! Thank you for being such great clients!
