9 months

Just one for now of my daughter's 9 month shots. She is SO fast (doesn't hold still for a second) that I didn't capture what I had in mind, but she is so darn cute...and I can do reshoots at my leisure :) I'll post more when I'm done proofing client sessions. Oh, and I *officially* don't like the "save for web" feature in photoshop...or maybe I'm doing it wrong. This is not grainy at all in real life!

She's such a daddy's girl...

Some like it hot!

I photographed this gorgeous couple this weekend. I love the grain in this image (I tend to like grainier b/w anyway). I know her right side is hot (their left sides were melting with the lit fireplace!), but I really love this image, and hope they will too! So M & M, here's your sneak peek! :)

Fun with "stuff"

I'm participating in a weekly assignment with some other photographers, and this week's assignment was "creative angles." Here's my new favorite "thing" shot (my old favorite was an old bean poler (farm equipment) abstract taken with my ancient minolta film camera (no longer with me...gosh was that thing heavy!).

I've been tagged!

You remember back in grade school...tag, you're it! Same thing, but blog style. I've been tagged, so I've got to share 5 "weird" things about myself!

1. I have to sleep on the side of the bed closest to the door, and I like to sleep with the door open. I also have to have some sort of covers on, even if it is hot out.

2. I drink my coffee (hot or cold) with a straw :)

3. I loathe the sound of chewing (like my hubby crunching grapes right now in my ear)...it just drives me nuts! Of course I make noise when I chew, but I can't hear myself!

4. I like my neighbors (really!) We have a great n'hood, with friendly, fun neighbors who like any excuse to throw a party.

5. I eat my veggies first. One of those weird holdovers from childhood. I always ate them first to get it over with. I actually like veggies now, so it isn't because I don't want to eat them anymore, it is just habit!

I think I'm pretty normal, but normal is relative :) He hehehe. Now it is my turn to tag someone!

Oh, and in case you're all wondering (because I KNOW you are) here's a snapshot of me that my DH took...so this (hence the flash and out of focus-ness) is what I look like.

Thank You!

Just a quick thank you to all my bloggy readers who post their wonderful comments :) I haven't had time to stalk my stat counter lately, but I love trying to guess who you are by where you're from :)

Woo Hoo! A Boy!

I haven't photographed a boy in what seems like forever. So when this little guy's momma wanted his pictures taken I was psyched! I usually post b/w images here, but I had to show his little shirt...it was his daddy's! Here's a little sneak peek for you, and yes, I did get a smile in one! :)
