Happy Thanksgiving!

November 24th, 2010

Wow! Did you all survive the Great Blizzard of 2010?? I’ll fully admit that I bought into the hype of it being the worst blizzard we’ve had in years. I thought about convincing Scott that we NEEDED to buy our 1 year food storage that very afternoon! Then logic set in and I only bought a week of food storage. Don’t judge…we might have been snowed in for a while and Thanksgiving was right around the corner! :D
Ajax got to go play outside in his cute parka. Apparently he had a different opinion of it because he ripped it off somewhere in the backyard and it’s since been lost to the mounds of snow.  Ungrateful little thing but I sure am thankful for him!
Speaking of thankful, I’m thankful for this man!! Oh, and thankful for my new coat. :D
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

She has a quietness that I found so unique. She observed everything I did and was able to mimic my poses exactly but added in the little something extra that I didn’t know was missing from the pose until I saw her do it. I loved her piercing eyes and how they connected with the camera in a way that I didn’t need to enhance her eye color in the slightest. I loved seeing the relationship she had with her brother and mom who came along. She’d laugh at her brother and we’d get winning smiles and then she’d speak the gorgeous language of Portuguese to her mother and it’d pull this beautiful and soft looks from her.  She was my last sunny session and I think it was fitting.

Beatriz, I’m SO glad I got to meet you and take your pictures! You are such a beautiful girl!!

This is my awesome camera assistant! He’s been able to help me with TWO sessions and LOVE him! It was so much fun showing him what each lens does and having him ask me what this and that was. He was a pro at making both of his sisters laugh and then quick as that he’d pull killer serious faces from them. And on top of all that he’s in Crimson Colony and I was in Crimson Colony!!
You have such a good eye, I hope you continue with photography! You were so easy to direct into poses and I’m so grateful for the amount of trust you put in me!! If Scott’s ever unable to come with my to my sessions I’m totally gonna call you to be my assistant! :D
