Happy Tails

Well, you would think after this long hiatus I would come back and have a great recipe, a new nifty craft, or shoot, even some decor updates. But none of those are happening because I have been maxin’ and relaxin’ and enjoying time with the hubs. Our dinners have been mostly take-out, home decor has been relinquished to removing the Christmas decorations, and crafts have been replaced by Real Housewives of Beverly Hills and Gossip Girl.

So in an effort to get back into the swing of things I will leave you with these photos of Lola…no we did not get a dog despite my charming efforts to swoon the hubby into saying yes. {insert extra big smile here} Lola belongs to our best friends who just might be obsessed with her and all things Lola.

Yes, this shoot really happened with three collar changes and all – but don’t worry kept the ¬†Christmas dress safely stored away in the dresser drawer.


Hope these pictures warm your heart just a bit on this chilly February evening!

SQUEEZABLE, LOVEABLE, HUGGABLE, UNBELIEVABLE

If this 19-month year old doesn’t melt your heart you may need to consider a visit along with the Tin Woodman to the land of Oz for new one (pretty sure they have one of those there) because he sure melts mine!

Blowing kisses to the camera right before he takes off running down the street dancing with his doggie, Minnie.

This was just a quick mini session I did with Riley while home visiting. Thankfully the rain held off enough for us to go outside for a bit and grab a few shots of this little bugger!

To view the complete session visit here.

crisp morning air.

As mentioned in a previous post, we spent last weekend at my parent’s house. On Friday morning, I found myself the first one up and to prevent from waking everyone else up, I took Tasha, the german shepperd, on a morning walk to the pond. While there, we watched the ducks skim across the water attempting to catch their morning meal.¬† Here are some of the pretty pictures to start off your morning!

Later that day, the sky began to billow up and created the most massive and gorgeous clouds I think I have ever seen. Ryan has been looking for the perfect chance to really put our new Tokina 12-24mm lens to good use, so this was his chance.

Ryan really did a great job of capturing the clouds in a natural, not overprocessed way. I love to see the differences in how Ryan and I photograph a scene. Ryan is much more focused on strong geometric shapes, vibrant colors, and very sharp exposures while I tend to favor slightly overexposed, softer images. I think these two sets of images show our different styles fairly well.
