It Must Be Puppy Love....

Yesterday I had a fun photo shoot with these six playful puppies.  A very good friend of my sister also raises and shows Bernese Mountain Dogs and these are six beautiful puppies I am sure will be winning lots of ribbons and trophies in the future.  It was such a wonderful shoot......although I have to admit a little bittersweet.  We shared lots of laughs, a few tears as we reminisced about Sheila and lots and lots of puppy kisses.  (I LOVE puppy kisses....puppy breath.....puppy love!)

I was so impressed we were able to get all six of these puppies in one shot and we actually did it a few times.  I could tell Kathy is a pro.....(although we did have a few extra hands - thanks Cheyanna, Wayne, Sue and Evan). 

I cannot thank Kathy enough for spending the afternoon with me and allowing me to enjoy these wonderful blessings.  You were such a truly special person in my sister's life and spending time with you and your puppies was such a special time for me.  I look forward to doing it again!

Quick Sneak Peek!

Just one quick one from my session tonight.  This family was so much fun and they had four wonderful, energetic kids that had great smiles.  We had fun making silly faces and silly poses and got some great family pics in the process.  
Thanks for a great evening!

Fun Family Photos

Need to catch up....and .... I AM!  Woo Hoo!!!  Thank God I have such a great husband and friends.  For those who don't know, my husband started working four day weeks to help me in my business and I have hired some additional help as well.  So far, it is going great!  I have spent the last several days editing, finishing up a new website, working in the studio and looking toward the future.  It has been a great week!

But, I need to get my posts finished on my blog so here is the first of many to come in the next several days.  For those who don't know, in the past few weeks I have had a computer crash and my internet took a "nap".  But, everything is back up and running and most importantly I did NOT lose any pics in the process.  I am such an anal backup freak, I have copies all over the place.  Anyway, now that we are working properly again.....I WILL get caught up on my blogging too!   Thanks to everyone for your patience.

This family was so much fun to work with.  I cannot believe how many pics we took when they were here.   I love doing photos of Grandparents and their grandkids and they were great to work with.  Thanks for a fun shoot.

Sneak Peeks!

Just a few from one of my sessions today.  I am having a few internet problems this weekend and uploading pics is difficult at best.  But, I got these three to load.  I absolute love these pics.  This is such a sweet family and I loved taking their family photos.  I will have more to share in the next several days but, just had to show you a couple.  I nearly wet my pants laughing when the pic of Olivia came up with the hat.  What a cutie!  Definitely a benefit of this job is all the snuggling I get to do with babies!
