This post is long overdue since baby P has already arrived! I just finished designing an album for them, so I thought it would be a good time to share some of their images.

Mom contacted me a while ago to schedule a maternity session. She said she never did one with her other two boys, and since this would probably be the last baby in the house, she wanted to capture some images of her pregnancy. The P family now has photos to document the family during Mom’s pregnancy, and a gorgeous album coming their way soon.

Here are some fun pictures from little B’s 2nd birthday party. What is better than spending a morning hanging out with some two year olds, eating cake, and running around like crazy pushing strollers and shopping carts? Well I didn’t do the latter, but it was still fun.

On my trip to Northern California I had an engagement session with this lovely couple. They are getting married in November! I still have to unpack, so there will be more to come!

So I learned a lot of things this past weekend.

1. When planning a closet remodel remember to consider where the doors will be (oops).
2. I need a 16-35mm to properly document said closet remodel.
3. A flash doesn’t work very well with a fisheye.
4. I have way too much stuff.

And finally….

5. I thought it would be fun to give my dog a mohawk. However the poor dog is ashamed of his haircut. You can just see it. He looks like a horse and I can’t stop laughing.

I’m still here! July was busy busy and now it’s August and I’m still finishing up my to do list from July. I finally got my website galleries updated as well as my splash page. Please check them out! I also just revamped the blog. It’s been a long road but I finally feel like I have a look I am happy with. I still have a few issues to work out with my blog, but hopefully soon it will all be done!

So I promised lots of pictures while I was on “vacation”, but I never had time to take my class. I sent in my camera and a lens for service and now they are primed and ready to go. I have sessions scheduled for this weekend through October, so please contact me as soon as possible if you are interested in Holiday photos.

What was I doing in July you ask? I was busy evaluating and ordering sample products. I have restructured all my product offerings and I’m really excited to share all my new products with everyone! Big blog post to come. I was also becoming friends with Quickbooks. I wouldn’t say we are best buddies, but I got all my ducks in a row and finished my taxes.
