All The Way From FLA

I meet the Greene's today after Ashley contacted me a few weeks ago. I clicked on over to her FB page.......FLORIDA! What?! It turns out that they would be up visiting family this week and picked me to take their pictures, all the way from Florida. They were a pleasure to work with today and little David is absolutely precious! I wish I had just a quarter of his energy. :)
This is one of my absolute favs!

Just look at that grin, we had fun "aachhooo-ing" the cotton. lol

Trees and airplanes!

It's time for iheartfaces Week 3 Challenge: We Are Family
After going through a gazillion pictures I decided to enter a "non-traditional" family, but a family all the same. I've spent pretty much all my life in one fire station or another and it is very near and dear to my heart. They are a family in every sense of the word and have always been a part of mine. Here are a few of them.......Hunterdale Volunteer Fire Department

It's Almost Baby Time!

Well folks, here it is! After several reschedulings due to our lovely Virginia weather we FINALLY got a beautiful day to document this very special moment in Chris and Jessica's lives. Chris and I go back to diaper days running around the fire station with our dads and Jessica's mom is the ONLY person I will let touch my hair. lol So, I was super happy to be a part of this stage of their lives. Miss Kendall Carr is due in just 2 weeks! She could literally come any time now........so enjoy Jessica's maternity session and stay tuned to meet the baby girl VERY soon!

I this is one of my favs!

Can't wait for her to get here so we can do the matching shot to this one!

It's all about the ladybugs! Cuteness!

When It Rains It Pours....

So I had hoped that this post would be all about getting my business license and being all official. I got it, I'm all official, but before I could I get it on here disaster struck. Dun dun duunn.......I came home super excited to document my accomplishment, I traipse on outside to get a nice glowy sunset pic of a little blue piece of paper....camera will not focus....panic. This is all my fault, I dropped it...cringe...a few days ago, from my big jacked up redneck truck. I panic, as I have a shoot on Friday, no time to have it fixed. Husband to the rescue, he just walks in and says, " you need a better one anyway". I'm in shock, getting a new camera right now was not in the plan. I go with it and now am the proud owner of a Canon 7D and I love it. It's not my 5D MkII, but you gotta work your way up, right? Something to look forward to. If only this were the end of my woes. The laptop is finally on its last leg, as if we didn't just spent enough money, a new computer will join the family in the next day or so. So, you know how they say "when it rains, it pours".......

Now that I've had my rant, here's a peak at how I usually spend my Wednesday nights and the 7D's first outing!

This is a SoCo staple.

And this is where the fun begins.....

My toes are numb at this point.....

All Megan talks about is making FB, well I did you one better....you made the blog!!

The Beginning

So, I've had the blog a few days now and I've been contemplating a first post. I thought I would start with getting my business license today, but that was a fail. Then, while blogstalking some of my favorites I came across iheartfaces. It's their birthday, so I figured entering this weeks contest would be a great start to my blog! So here it is, wish me luck...............fingers crossed........
