Yesterday I headed into DC to hang out with my favorite blonde photographer (well strawberry blonde photographer now) to have a night of fun on the town. We met up with a few local photographers for dinner at Jaleo and had such a great time! Here are a few pictures I snapped while walking around the city yesterday and last night!

Cade and Joce have been taking swimming lessons for the last month, so I decided it was time to bring my camera to class for a few action shots. Luckily, they are so used to seeing the camera glued to my face that candids are not an issue for us. Enjoy!

(The title of this post is a saying that my brother came up with when Cade was a baby. Whenever Cade used to take a bath and splash around, my brother Gabe would ask if he was swimming like a fish, fish. The saying has just kind of stuck with us and it just seemed so fitting for this post!)

Yesterday afternoon, I headed downtown to help Bryan take his daughter Harper’s 3 year pictures. This was my first time meeting her and I must say she is an absolute doll!! She is also very full of energy, as are most 3 year olds. There was definitely a lot of laughter and thankfully only a few tears and once I stopped crying I was able to get some great shots. Haha! I am kidding of course! Well, without further ado here they are. Enjoy!!

I love this one. Harper put lipstick on all of us…even her toy dinosaurs!

Last weekend, I headed over to Townsend to do part 2 of Brooke’s maternity session. You can see part 1 here. We had a great time walking around her grandparent’s farm looking for neat places to shoot. Luckily, farms area a full of fun shooting opportunities. Once again, we had perfect weather, which was great because this is another shoot that has been postponed numerous times because of the weather. Brooke and Brian thank you for spending your Sunday morning with me…I had a great time! And a big thank you to Brooke’s dad Larry for possibly stopping what could have been a “run of the bulls” in Townsend!!

Keaton’s dad, Rob, was unable to make it the first time I met up with Keaton and Julie to take pictures, so we decided to have a mini session this past weekend. We could not have asked for better weather, it was absolutely beautiful outside!!

Rob and Julie made a bet before the Super Bowl that if the Steeler’s won, Keaton and Rob would have pictures taken in their Steeler’s jerseys…well as you all know..the Steeler’s won! You will see those pictures at the end of the post. I won’t tell you what I would have been photographing had the Cardinals won;) Enjoy!!

Sneak Peek

Here is a sneak peek from my weekend. This weekend was a weekend of follow up shoots. When I initially met with Brooke, her husband was unable to make it to the session, so we decided to meet at a later date. We ran into the same problem with Keaton, her dad was out of town. So both shoots were scheduled for this weekend and it was beautiful out…we could not have asked for better weather! Stayed tuned…more to come!

doodles 

This post comes after a super sweet and unexpected surprise arrived on my doorstep this morning. Last week, I mentioned to my friend Jaime that I wanted to have our friend Quinn doodle a picture of my daughter Jocelyn. I really did not expect anything to come of this conversation but when you are friends with Jaime, you have to learn to expect the unexpected! After my discussion with her, she and Quinn teamed up to create an awesome graphic art canvas of Jocelyn in her Snow White dress. The original picture was taken by my neighbor Meggie Velasco and is absolutely one of my favorite pictures of Joce ever! Tears started to stream down my face when I opened the package. It was beautiful!!! Both of these women are so talented and so giving and for that I am so thankful to have them in my life. I haven’t even met Quinn in person yet!!! We are virtual friends!! I wanted to hop in the car and drive up to DC and give both of these girls a hug!!! In a million lifetimes I could never repay any of my friends for the things that they do for me each and every day. Each and every one of you is so special to me and I cannot imagine my life without you all in it. Thank you Jaime and Quinn for this very unexpected surprise- you have no idea how much it helped brighten my day! And even more importantly, I think a world record may have been broken today. Quinn and Jaime held a secret in for more than 2 days. Yay!!! I am so proud of you both!

Please make sure you head over to Jaime and Quinn’s sites to check out their work. As I said before, they are both extremely talented!! Quinn is also running a special – 15% off of her doodles. So make sure you get doodled before the special ends!!

The picture above shows the original image and the doodle. The canvas can be seen below.

Here is Joce with her picture. After she saw it she wanted to put her Snow White dress on!

I told her about the surprise when I picked her up from school. She could hardly contain her excitement! Well, Cade was not quite so happy for her, since he didn’t get a surprise too. So, to make himself feel better he told her it was probably a boring surprise like a pile of dirty underwear.  After that comment, they spent the rest of the ride home coming up with silly things that it could be- a pile of grass, leaves, a car, and the list went on. I was hoping we would make it home before boogers were introduced! You’ve gotta love kids!
