Chicago Shoot Post 1

The plan was to go up to Chicago, visit with my friend Kate and take some shots of her and a pair of models I had hired. Well I learned not every well laid plan goes as expected. First I was struggling to find a good make up artist, then I finally got that nailed down. Then the two models had some personal stuff come up and were unable to make it. (I hope to catch up with them some other time)
Fortunately for me, my dear friend Kate has a great network of friends in the city! She was able to get a couple of friends to come out on very short notice but since it was short notice I wasn't really sure what to expect. All I heard was Kate say to Heather on the phone, bring your whole closet and then she gave me a look and giggled.
When Heather and Cobra showed up it took a couple of trips to the car to be able to bring everything inside. I was in complete costume heaven!!!
These two had some great outfits and it was just so cute how Heather was always adding little touches to Cobra's outfit while I was shooting him. This girl has a knack for pulling a look together!

Thank you to both of you for coming out posing for me. I had a great time getting to meet both of you. I hope you enjoy the photos. I hope to join you on the Playa sometime! ;)

Congratulations to Laura and Dave!!

Last weekend Chris and I got to spend the day with one of the cutest couples I have ever met. The ceremony was held in the beautiful St. Patrick's Catholic Church of Merna.
The bride was just glowing and the grooms eyes lit up anytime she was near (or he heard her giggle). Laura has one of those laughs that just makes everyone in the room smile. I had fun hanging out with the girls while they were getting ready and I know Chris had a good time with the guys, including the photogenic father of the bride.
We wish the two of you the very best! Thank you for letting us be a part of your day.


Laura and Dave were blessed with a special visit from their neice.

She is just so adorable!

Introducing Monty The Snow Dog

A few months ago after going out to take photos of Paradise Pet's new foster dogs, Chris and I had some conversation on the idea of adopting a second dog.
We discussed how it could be a beneficial thing for Mojo (our other rescue) to have a more outgoing and playful friend around the house. We bounced the idea back and forth for a few days and ended up deciding to take a foster home to test.
Well after about a week with us it was evident that Monty was meant to be a part of this family. He is sweet, affectionate and really just a fun little goofball. He has not only helped Mojo come out of his shell a little more but has also brought so many smiles to our home.
Last weekend after the blizzard started to dwindle down we went out to dig out our driveway and took Monty out with us. He seemed to have so much fun out playing and hopping through the snow. I know we had a great time watching him jump and hop around, trying to get on top of the snow in the yard.

Enjoy and Stay Warm!

This is what we saw when we opened the garage door.
