This is Adleigh.
And this always happens with babies this age. You plan and plan, and even plan some more, and they still, no matter what, run the show. She's absolutely adorable! She really is, but I believe Mom and Dad (Patrick and Chelsea) when they say, she is usually so happy and full of smiles! But when a stranger shows up, puts her in a wheat field and strips her down to her onsie, well, you are bound to get a few different looks.
And we did!
We started out at home, so Adleigh could get used to my voice, and then we drove out to Woodrow Road which has the coolest fields of green, green grass! But Adlieigh really wouldn't smile or interact with me, and I can't blame her one bit. The girl was more interested in the grass. LOL
Once home, though? In her own high chair? Yep, smiles. She was happy eating those peas.
Chelsie is such an amazing artist! She asked me to photograph her portfolio at the end of this year as she was having trouble getting a good image of some of her stuff. She wants to create a web site and feature her work there for everyone to see. I seriously think she should and even encouraged her to start a blog. (another blog for me to read...insert evil blogaholic laughter!) So, don't be surprised if I post a link here someday.
Here's just one of her amazing pieces!
My personal favorite from our time together. Such a great feeling, especially for all moms and dads out there! I love this one!

Ahhh! Days don't get much better than this one! Friday, April 27, 2007, Elizabeth and Daniel said, "I do!". And it was such a great wedding! It didn't have flowers, music or even a white dress, but it had what mattered the most, which is committment and love and family. (oh, and me!)
Congratulations you two! I'll see you "three" in June!
Wow! I just checked the archives and it's been months since I have photographed my daughter's soccer team! They desperately needed documenting. Many of the girls have grown, gotten faster, gotten stronger! I've so enjoyed watching them through the lens this week!
I won't post very many here, because I post them all online for all the parents. You can view their LONESTAR SPRING GALLERY by clicking HERE.
Congratulations GIRLS on your BIG win over Amarillo Lightening! GREAT, GREAT GAME!!!

That's really all I should say. YUM
I haven't posted much this week. Devin, my husband has been out of town and my girls are busy with spring sports, thus I'm "Taxi Mom" alone! Just last night, we had 2 softball games, and 2 basketball games. I didn't make it to bed until 2 AM and there was absolutely no drinking involved! Oh, my! How unfair is that?
I have hardly had any computer time this week and it shows! I'm behind! But I absolutely had to post my favorites from this couples session before I sit on another row of bleachers and surrender myself to the "bleacher butt" syndrome of pain.
I know Ginger because I know Ginger's mom, Candy. She's what I would call, "old school" portrait photographer. And I so admire her! I've known her for several years now and she "grew up" photographing Large Format portraits. She's digital now and loving it, but I so admire her work and art that she's created for others and around her home. (I'm still waiting on that print of the red door, Candy! I love that shot!)
Ginger and Bret are "tying the knot" this summer, at her Family Home (I love that!) and we needed some good portraits of these two, for the announcement and just because. I am thrilled to be a part of this, and honestly, downright flattered. Along with admiration of her work, Candy has the BEST taste in all the things I love, so if she's letting me snap the shutter at this wedding, I must know what I'm doing! HA!
We didn't have the "best of time" according to the Professional Handbook for Outdoor Photography. It was afterall, high noon. But I've broken a few rules in my time alive and since these two were just in town for a bit, this was it. Our time. I think we did very well together.
I love how the "family dog" just had to tag along with us!
Thanks you two! You did fabulous! I'll have the rest posted soon and will let "Mom" know.
