There is something intrinsically lovely about spring.  Flowers not only bloom on the ground, but they take over the trees as well!  Finally you can start leaving your winter jacket on the hanger, and grab a lighter scarf.  I look forward to it every year!  You can finally let winter go and move into the vibrance of spring.

And to make it even more lovely, add in 6 month old Isabelle.  Full of giggles and smiles.  It doesn’t feel all that long ago that we were doing her newborn shoot.  It’s amazing how fast she’s grown (not like it’s anything new that babies grow, but you know what I mean)!  She continues to become such a beautiful girl!

This is one of my absolute favorites of the day….

You got to get some goofiness into every shoot…

Millers, it’s always a pleasure working with you!  I can’t wait for Isabelle’s next shoot!

I hope you all had a fabulous Easter!  Ours was wonderful.  We had a great time being with family and celebrating and relaxing.

Many of you have asked about it, and in honor of Easter I’m finally putting it up…Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls I give you the Baby Chick/Easter shoot (and thank you to Providence for teaching me that great line!)!!!

Mike and I had so much fun working with all the families on this shoot!  It was hilarious to watch the kids with the chickies, and made for some great pictures!  Thank you to all of the families.  We had a blast working with you!  And a special thanks to our 6 baby chicks for being such good sports.  You guys rock.  (can you say that to chickens?  I guess that’s kinda weird.  Whatever).

You’ve gotta love this next one!  Jonah really got into the farming motif.  Such a “little man”!

Easter eggs and flowers

So the rain hasn’t been the only delay around our house.  Sorry for leaving you hanging last week on the blogging!  It was a bit crazy at the Paterson residence.  And it’s female resident being the chief culprit. 

Going back to the rain though.  We rescheduled the spring Easter shoot for fear of rain.  I know there were some of  you that had wanted to do the shoot, but weren’t able to do.  Our new date is March 28th.  We will have a back up, so rain or shine, that shoot is gonna happen!  And I can’t tell you how excited I am for it.  I’m going to have my own roost of little chicks, as well as Easter eggs and basket.  It will be so much fun!  So, if you felt you had missed out this weekend, you are welcome on the 28th.  Space is limited though, so let me know soon if you are wanting a spot!

WHEN: March 13, 2010

COST: $50 (cost includes sitting, one 5×7 of your choosing, a set of 4 wallets, and rights to one jpg for printing cards)

I believe that it had to be the coldest day of the year, or maybe even of all time.  Who really knows.  It was fridged, that’s all I knew for sure.  It was also the day of the Mitchell’s Christmas shoot, and little Emma was just a couple months old.  If you ever want to see a shoot done in a big hurry, put your family in freezing weather and have them take their coats off for a picture.  That will get you in and out quick.  And even though we were all in pain, we still got some great glimpses into this precious family’s life.

Don’t you just love the smile on this beauty?!

If you know the Mitchell’s, you know that Jesse is a ham.  I think that Samantha must have gotten the silly gene too. 

This is one of my favorites.  You can see how much Tammie loves her girls in this shot!

This was when Samantha decided to make her big escape to the car.  Inwardly, I think we all were wishing we were in the car.  Actually, I think we were wishing that there was a Barista waiting for us with a mocha made with craft and care to our personal likings.  When you’re cold, every one should have a barista to wait on them.   

This was shot afer the great escape, hence no smile from child number one.  That’s ok though.  She had done a great job!  And actually, I really like this picture.  There is something hilarious to me when kids have that blank expression.  Someone needs to find her barista.

And this is baby Emma.  She was such a doll!

It was wonderful working with you Mitchells!  You are always a joy!  Let’s just do Christmas pictures in July next year (In Hawaii.  With Baristas.)

I promised you last week that I wanted to start a series of my favorite things.  What better way than for me to start with some of my favorite pictures from last year? 

There are so many things that I see in a  photograph.  First off,  people’s expressions.  What are they thinking about?  Were they happy?  Dreaming?  Making a joke?  The next thing is lighting.  I cannot tell you how much I love beautiful light!  Oh, it’s gorgeous!!  If you’ve ever done a shoot with me, you know I’m always looking for “the perfect light”.  I’m enamored with it!  And then there is framing.  You’ve got to get it just right to make my first love show off completely. 

All that said, here are a few of my favs.  And to add a little fun to this post, I thought we’d turn it into a game.  Vote for your favorite pictures by leaving a comment, and I will give the winner a 5×7 print of the picture!  Get your votes in now, because on Friday I’ll announce the winner!  Good luck!  (Pictures are in no particular order)
