Can I just say that it felt wonderful to go out and vote today! I got out of bed this morning and looked forward to walking my little guy to school, kissing him goodbye and walking to the polls. There is nothing more liberating than going to your local polling station, coloring in those little circles with black marker, and knowing that your opinion counts! I was proud to see so many Americans ready and willing to say “my opinion matters”. So let’s say a prayer, cross our fingers and hope that the best man wins tonight. Go Obama!!!
I had the honor of photographing these little beauties a few days ago and we had such a great time! Together they had decided that they would wear the dresses they had worn from their Aunt’s wedding and you can see that they felt like princesses in them. They sang me songs and skipped under the cherry blossom tree. Oh, to be a carefree little girl again. Well, for a moment these sweet girls let me enjoy their world and what a special moment it was.
I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween! What a perfect night it was here. There wasn’t a doorbell that had to be rung because everyone was out on their porch handing out candy and enjoying the warm weather.
Well, after all of that candy and lots and lots of fun it was back to work. It’s that time of year and there is alot of production work that needs to be done.
I had to give a little sneak peak to the fabulous mom of this Rockin’ crew. Susan came to me asking if I could do something a little less “soft and sweet”. A good friend of hers and wonderful client and friend of mine had been bringing her children to me for years and she said while she appreciated the photos that I had taken of her friends kids, she didn’t think that it was something that she would want of her children. She wanted “edgey and cool”. I asked her to please trust me to give her what she wanted and thankfully she did. Needless to say she’s thrilled with the pictures and I had a blast! Susan was so creative with the clothing and props. Her kid’s played the part perfectly!! Thanks guys! This was a shoot to remember!
Well, this is my first official blog and I’m going to start with a family that I just adore. Chris has been bringing her little ones to me since her oldest was just two years old. I’ve watched their family grow over the years and might I just say that each of her babies just get yummier! I think that Chris left this shoot hoping beyond hope that we might just get at least one photo out of this and well… I’ll let you be the judge.
