Stories - 9 Brotherly love

This one makes me laugh every time I see it.  Everyone who sees it says "Oh, look how well behaved they are!"  Weeeeellll, brothers Duke and Bear were not quite as angelic as they appear. :-) I think it was about 20 minutes of chasing, playing, re-posing and laughing for us to get this shot.  Literally, it was, click, click!  They were a lot of fun, but really didn't want to sit still when there were so many people to play with. lol  Look at those sweet faces.  They really are good boys.  :-)

Stories - 8

This one is an example of finding solutions that work. We were shooting this little darlin' and her 2 yr old sister. (This is another one from the first official session I ever did.) She was 4 months old and tired and grumpy. No matter what we tried, she was crying harder and harder. Finally, I asked mom if she was usually comfortable in her car seat. She was, so I put this background over her car seat, snuggled her down inside it and voila! She was happy. Just look at that cute smile! It wasn't the set up or prop I had envisioned, but the result was super cuteness and that, after all, is our goal. :-)

My "how old" contest - Winners!

Well, nobody guessed it exactly right to win the 50% off, but Holly guessed closer than anyone else, so I'm going to award her one complimentary 8x10. Everyone else who entered the contest before today will receive one complimentary 5x7! Thanks for entering everyone! Keep an eye out for more contests!

The correct age was 6! I acheived the impression of an older person by shooting up at him. :-)

This is one of my favs (can you tell I have a lot?). It was taken a few years ago and I just love it. Can you guess how old the subject is? I will draw a winner from all the people who guess correctly and give that person 50% off their next session fee. Contest ends on Sunday, March 7th. You can guess by posting a comment either on my blog or on my Facebook fan page. Good luck!

My crazy week

What a crazy week! For those of you who don't know, my 11 month old has been sick for almost two weeks and ended up in the ER on Monday night with a high fever and racing heart. Thankfully, he's doing much better now, but I'm behind on my posting. :-) Hope you're all enjoying this gorgeous weekend in the beautiful Pacific Northwest! I'm off to a senior shoot this afternoon. Yeah!
