I have spent the last two weeks traveling around the country hanging out with amazing women, talking passion, photographing cute little models… I am home a little more tired (in a good way), a little more tanned (thankfully the sun followed to every city- except home. but ya can’t have everything, right?) and ready to tackle all new projects with the inspiration of all these fantastic photographers behind me.
My first stop was Virginia (& the first time I have ever visited our capitol… yay!). So grateful to Traci for opening up her heart and home to us and making it possible for us to share such a great day!
thank you to everyone that came… it was a perfect day!

I have to post tomorrow’s winners a bit early… off on a last minute road trip so things will be quiet here for a bit. I’ll answer emails & all as quickly as I can but please be patient with me… :)
Anne won the lion hat!! & Paige won the adorable Lady Knitster headband… email me with your address guys!! I hope the recipients of your kindness are still basking in the love ;)
And just cause I don’t really know how to post without pictures and I am trying my very best to get through this last session before I leave, I thought I’d share a little sneak peek at my latest session. She is my very favorite red head in the entire world (wouldn’t you just die for this color hair??). She holds a very special place in my heart (can’t believe it’s already been two years since this session…). And I have to show off her sweet & adorable baby sister… ;)

I still have give aways but since I’m off I am thinking I might do them on Twitter or Facebook so keep an eye out ;) And if you’re not my friend on FB… leave me a little note with the friend request. I try to only accept friends that I have friends in common with or recognize as a fellow photographer. Thank you!!! Have a lovely weekend…
Oh how I miss living on the mountain… there is something about FEET of snow. Housebound, cocoa, fire roaring… taking the 4×4 out to play in the barren streets. Yeah… now I get excited when we get this…
Ah well… good enough excuse for a photo shoot at least, eh? haha
And to keep the giving going… I have more goodies to give you all!! I have a newborn version of the LION HAT made by Lexicam Studios. This thing is adorable. Aaaaand a super cute headband from Lady Knitster- this baby one!! I am a big fan of the It Starts With Us mission (check them out here). There mission this week is ‘For the next 7 days, do something very small but consistent for one person.‘ (**Ideas: a simple text message, email, facebook post, etc, just letting the person know you care about them and they are loved. And that’s just for the online folks.) :) I’m gonna trust you to do this so all you have to do is make a promise to act on this in your comment and let me know which item you’d like to have… I’ll pick a winner on Friday!!
Triple 7 Shootout Set TWO!! I’m kinda prejudice when it comes to this one… my AMAZING clients flew all the way from Portland to model (& yeah, gotta say… I’ve trained them very, very well) ;) Not to mention that my freakin’ super talented friend Vanessa from butterflyspArks designed this set for us. Basically it comes down to a you-can’t-go-wrong-cuteness-overload type of set ;)
I also have to give a HUGE amount of thanks to Bobby at Vegas Vision Studios. See the glitter in this set? See how it flies around and makes sparkly goodness everywhere? Yeaaahh… let’s just say that Bobby and his team will remember our sparkly goodness for the rest of time (it will take that long to remove it all from the ENTIRE studio *gulp). The most accomodating, hospitable team ever…
Without further ado…
