Happy Mothers Day!

So I am a little late on this post, but I hope everyone had an amazing mothers day!
I was unable to spend mine with my mom since we live states away no, but I did get to talk to her and remind her she is the best mom ever!!  I mean she did raise me...need I say more ;)

Anyhow.....I was surprised with an amazing gift from my little peanut and her daddy.
And ITouch! :)  I am a huge Apple geek and I couln't have been more surprised and excited in one day.

Really he is the best!  I already have been dowloading apps, music and my pictures.  Of course it never ceases to amaze me that even though my peanut has her own little mp3 I still have to download HSM and Hannah and all her other favorite songs onto mine.  Oh well, not sure what is worse, the fact I have them on there or the fact that I find myself alone sometimes jamming out to Troy Bolton singing to Gabriella.  LOL!!

Here are my two favorite people doing what they do best...goofing off.  I know you see her, can you see who she's talking to ? 

Is it a bird, a plane....nope just a daddy in a tree!!!

Natalie & Roosevelt

I was able to spend my Saturday with the amazing Natalie & Roosevelt and their friends and family.  I met Natalie over the internet and we got together a month ago to put the faces with the voices.  Friday was able to meet the super handsome Roosevelt which hopefully I was able to settle any nerves he may have had while I gave him a sneak peek at just how many pictures I take while at their rehersal dinner.  

You can see from the sneak peek pictures just how much they love each other.  Throughout the entire two days with them while watching through my lens I could always see him searching through the room to adore his beautiful bride.  They were so sweet!

Nat and Roosevelt, I hope you are having an amazing time on your honeymoon!!

I Have The Best Clients!!

OK, so really, I love doing what I do.  

I could spend my entire day taking pictures and I go home so fulfilled. But one thing that makes it even better is the people I get to work with.  I grew up in retail and sometimes I truly miss all the customer interaction, meeting hundreds of people each day was exciting to me.  So going out and meeting new people and taking pictures of them, capturing their emotions, feelings, and memories all on my little Nikon is the most amazing feeling.  I love becoming a part of their family for a day, becoming their friend, and essentially giving them a special gift to last a lifetime....a memory.

So I have to tell you nothing has made me feel as special as I do right now.  You see I love the pictures I give my clients, and I always hope they love them just as much.  But when they call me for baby pictures after photographing their wedding, or family portraits after photography their maternity pictures, or even asking me to take their pictures again, it's then I know they loved those pictures as much as I did.  I mean why else would they want more...right?

And there are photographers out there that have mind blowing work, let's take for example one of my favorites, Bobby and Lindsay Earle,  amazing work, can't compare.  They are who inspire me and where I hope to be one day.  And it's days like today that keep me motivated that maybe just maybe I'm not half bad at this.

So you are probably wanting me to get to my point right.  Well here it goes, I have the BEST clients, and I can say without a doubt....THE BEST clients.  So you may be thinking, no you do, or how could I, well let me tell you.  For a girl from Chicago who is living in the south for now...well let me just show you.  Take a look below for yourself.......

So do you understand.....the B.E.S.T clients!!

And not just one pizza....but FOUR!!

Now I just have to figure out which one of my clients did this...whoever you are if you are reading this....You made my day, my hubby's day, and our daughters day.  We are eating it up Chicago style tonight :)!!
