For some reason there is nothing like a still moment with a curled up kitty. There’s something about that warm fury body on a rainy day that calls for blankets, a warm cup of coffee, and cuddles. We have two cats, Briscoe and Sookie. Sookie is featured here. While I pass by them a million times a day in this position, there are some moments when their peaceful nature just strikes me.
I can hardly believe it! My first Mother’s Day as a Mom! I can already feel the time slipping by. Each moment passes way too quickly. As I was thinking about that this morning I decided to offer a mini session special for all those Mommy’s out there who want to capture this special time before it slips by. Email me today to lock in your time slot!
Candoro Marble is a beautiful venue that originally was the showroom and office for Candoro Marble Company. When Jaimie said she was looking for a vintage backdrop for some soft and classic boudoir photos, I knew that this was the place. The beautiful show room, wrought iron gates, and slightly decaying rooms spoke of Greecian statues…it was perfect.
There hasn’t been a whole lot of “still moments” around here lately to tell the truth. But every now and then we get a glimmer of one and hold onto it for dear life. There is something about having a child that makes you be much more aware of time and its passing. It can make your stomach churn to realize how much has already gone by, or make you flood with exasperation at how slow the lack of one nap time is going. Either way you are so much more aware of it coursing through your daily life with an intense ebb and flow.
I was a little skeptical when Ashley asked me to photograph her wedding. I sat across from her at Panera looking into her smiling face and had my doubts. None of them were about her but about me. I was 8 months pregnant and already felt like I was going to pop. Her wedding was roughly a month after my due date. What if it was too soon? My concern was not for my own well being but what if I could not deliver (as I promise all my clients) my absolute best? As I looked at Ashley’s expectant smile, I knew that I couldn’t say no. Ashley’s sweet and understanding personality made it easy to take a chance. We decided to wing it and I’m so glad we did.
