Great Weekend?

I hope you all had a great weekend!

Today I was working on a pageant shoot. I am posting a photo from that shoot and with the same girl among my flowers outside my home/studio. You will probably recognize her as I tend to photograph her alot. It is great having someone that I can just call when I have an idea and her mom will bring her over. Plus with those freckles she is just adorable!

This pageant stuff is hard work! I don't know how you moms do this! I can not believe all of the stuff you have to have to enter. Whew!! Maybe I am glad that I only had one daughter and four boys. She was so busy dancing she never said anything about pageants. Oops...I take that back. We did put her in a Little Miss Hawaiian Tropic pageant. They advertised that they would disqualify you if you wore make up. I was foolish enough to believe it! She came in second behind a girl with full make up. That was our only experience.

I will be spending all Monday editing photos so I hope to have some more up to show you. I did a large family shoot last week and that is the main thing I will be doing. Have a great Monday!

Something new...

Hey all! I hope you are all enjoying this beautiful weekend. Today was just about perfect! I did a photoshoot with a beautiful eight week old baby. I was playing around with the photo today and this is what I came up to know what you think! I guess I must be missing scrapbooking? LOL...Anyway the little ones are hollering for me to cook them some cinnamon rolls so I guess I had better go and do that before they start really whining! a reprieve...Morris just came home and I am going to make him cook them. *grin*

One of my sons just spelled out, "I want Pizza" in Pokemon cards. Sometimes they really crack me up!

Don't forget the studio will be closed on Thursday because I will be at a photoshop seminar. Tomorrow I go and meet with the head nurse of the hospital here in Lebanon. I am going to tell her about the NILMDTS foundation. I hope it is something that she will see the need for and be interested in implementing at the hospital. . If you are not aware of this foundation you can read all about it at their website: .

Have a great weekend and I hope to be posting more photos soon!

Goodness Gracious!!

Oh me, Oh my! I can not believe that I have not posted in two weeks!! I have been a very very bad girl! But I have also been a very busy girl! I spent last night in Memphis at a seminar on lighting. It was very technical and very interesting. Now, I have all of these ideas swarming through my head that I cannot wait to try out! I have another seminar next week on photoshop. Those always make my head explode! LOL

I have also been very busy shooting. The studio is getting busier and busier and I must tell you that I am so excited and very thankful. I truly appreciate all of you who let me into your life and allow me to capture a few brief moments on film. It is a blessing getting to know all of you!

Another thing keeping me busy is the hockey season is starting so we are gearing up for the new year! That means meetings and fundraisers and phone calls, Oh my!

I have done several shoots lately but am only posting photos from two right now. Two are from shooting a six month old and the other is from a dog shoot I did. I hope you enjoy them.

All of you who are putting off having your photos done, now is the time. Call me and book now! I would love to shoot you.....err....with the camera of course! *grin*

May Day!!

May is finally here and I hope the weather stays warm and does not get too hot. I can't seem to get my temperature adjusted anymore...sigh....

My brother has been out here landscaping all week and things are really looking nice. Great time of year to do those outdoor shots!

I have just gotten in a new line of photo templates for baby announcements, senior announcements and thank you cards and much more. I am very excited about it! I will try to get some samples posted soon.

Here is a photo of a baby I photographed last week. I have been very busy this past week and am running a wee bit behind! EEK!! I hate that but I plan to be fully caught up by Monday. I think I will be holding another contest sometime next week to celebrate May so be ready!!
