I Heart Faces--- Pet Week

“Blessed are those who have the love of an old dog.”

It’s Pet Week at I Heart Faces. This is our 13 year old yellow lab, Peacemaker’s Misty Autumn. Autumn…to us.

Autumn and I had a photoshoot during the last snowfall this year.  I spent 20 minutes trying to get her to look at the camera but it never worked! There’s a sadness to this photo for me because my thought process was, “I’d better get some photos of Autumn, while we have the chance.” It breaks my heart to even type that.  She’s really went downhill in the last several months. Her back legs won’t cooperate when she wants to walk. She’s starting to have accidents in the house and I know that mortifies her. I can’t even begin to figure out how to prepare the kids for Autumn’s inevitable passing. Why can’t our pets have a longer lifespan? =(


Head on over to ihf_logo to see other pet posts that probably aren’t as much of a downer as this one. Sorry.

Meet and Greet

We had the pleasure of meeting several of Jack’s friends and some of their families, last night.

This is really a wonderful group of kids!

I ended up having to put the camera away or I’d never have socialized with anyone! Unfortunately, I missed taking photos of Chloe and her friends… Samantha and Zoe (and their families).

We’re so glad that Jack & Chloe have such a great circle of friends.

Here’s my favorite pic of the night. Anyone that knows my dear husband, knows that he can be a little verbose! I snapped this photo of Seth in mid- “excited about music” conversation with some of the other parents. LOL

I Heart Faces--- Wind

I haven’t entered an I Heart Faces challenge in a while but couldn’t pass up the chance when I heard the theme was “wind”.  This photo was taken during a very windy photo shoot. Half of the time Emma’s face was covered by hair. You can see that she’s trying to hold it back in this photo. I’m pretty happy with it because I had visualized a look and feel that I wanted and … wow, it actually almost turned out that way! I still have several to edit from this shoot and then I think a new canvas will be needed! LOL


Head over to I Heart Faces to see more windy photos…

So Many Birthday Babies!

I have a the great pleasure of photographing some absolutely beautiful babies in the last two weeks…and I mean really Adorable! I haven’t finished editing and culling through the literally hundreds of baby photos but here’s a quick peak at the fun we’ve been having.

The first birthday adventure was with my own sweet granddaughter, Audrey. To say it didn’t go well is quite the understatement! We could entitle this series, “It’s My Party—I Can Cry If I Want To! She really was not in the mood to get messy. Her Mommy tried to help her out but eventually Audrey said, “We are DONE with this”! It may not have went as planned but I treasure these photos.




The very next day I got to spend some time with Gabe and it was is actual birthday! What a sweet boy he is and his mama is one of the nicest people I’ve met in a long time.

Before the cake smashing melee! Gabe’s mom is thinking of getting a canvas of the black and white photo….Gorgeous!   


Let the fun begin…

And next is Anthony. Talk about a handsome, happy little guy!




Alex’s Turn! This adorable little redhead was all serious business about devouring his cake!


 Beautiful blue eyes!


Two of my little clients this week were not birthday babies but they sure were precious!
