Wow the difference a new website will make

I'm switching my photography business to a new website service provider this summer.  Actually by August 1st.
The reason is very simple: SMUGMUG
This is my answer to better proofs online and more!

As you can see the customer can design and create with their photo session photos!  Truly the answer for those Christmas card photo sessions that are so popular.
My last photo session was Thursday.  I have taken these little girls pictures for three years now and I think their smiles are just the cutest!

Blogging as Gramsey

I decided I wanted to try and blog a whole day as Gramsey, yunno just like the Pioneer Woman(love her blog).
The day started beautiful and the weather was sure to keep the three of us active.
  Trouble is action happens so fast on Gramsey days there is no way to capture it all in pictures.
We took our newly washed out Peanut Butter jar and Mayo jar (both plastic now) and headed to catch a few bugs.  Surprisingly we had a hard time even flipping a log or two.  Alas, finally a thin bodied beetle!  Lily was thrilled and Ruby was just along for the ride.

All the searching for bugs required a drink.

The studio stools were a hit in the kitchen.  Both of them had a "spinning chair" as they sipped  green Koolaid.

 I was doing fine til Lily got in her head she wanted bacon.  She specifically zeroed in on the white part of the bacon and said she wanted to eat that part!  It really seemed right since that is all the fat and she loves butter.  Hunger pains took over and soon I was cooking bacon and mac n cheese and the camera's battery died!  Bad planning for a photographer I know!

Lily insisting on bacon!
Auntie Maddie came home and that's when the battery died.

Richfield Pool

Ruby wins the darkest tan contest!

After the pool we chilled out and watched Glee.
I know....not your first choice for a 4 year old and a two year old.
But that's what they chose between 101 Dalmations, Little Mermaid
and several other Disney favorites.

Ruby had a harder time relaxing as she developed a skin rash on her back that was driving her (and me) Kookoo bananas.  I think my little Ruby Lu is horribly allergic to Gramsey's house.  Too much dander and probably mold.
We did our best with Benedryl, Neosporin and a cold compress.  Benedryl wins!

Welcome to Julianne (pronounced very deep and French) photo studio! Make sure to slur the J so it sounds like jhay!

Notice the ring bling and the watch!  Just like mommy and daddy.

 They picked there props after they knocked on the photo studio door.
They were real customers.
 Ruby raided Maddie's leftovers.  Brand new shoes left back in her old bedroom closet.

 We may have to get this sister shot printed!
 As I said, they picked their props and Lily loves umbrellas...even if they are photography umbrellas.

As you can see the checkerboard flooring that I had in the kitchen has become a floor prop.
Pretty darn cute I'd say.  I'd love to do some orange and strawberry bottled pop photos next time.

The photo shoot ended our afternoon.  Mommy came home.  She had Blond Sarah with her!

Sweet Summer Days and the First Tomato!

This post is for next winter.  Time passes and yes, summer is sweet and it will come again.  Can you smell the tomato on my hands after picking?

It's where's all that creativity I want?

Finally I find a little time to update my Photography website and I cannot seem to find the creativity.
Usually if I can get a jump start from something or someone....I get going.  But blah!  Hot humid weather
has drained those brain cells out this week.  Please please creativity come back!  Oh Maddie?

I had a wonderful photosession yesterday in studio....thank goodness.  What a beautiful one year old boy.
He was all smiles throughout the entire session.  Every once in a while a session goes perfect : )

Dead Heat Strawberry Pickin

I've always wanted to have a strawberry picking photoshoot.
Today was the day! It happened to be the hottest day of the year howeverand all of us were so hot and ready to be finished. We barely picked 5 lbs all together.
Lily picked at her own pace.
                                    Adrienne looks like a fashion model as she scours the field!

So sweet!

 Lookin for any bugs....
 Do you like my dress Rowan?
 Sitting around and being a sport.
 Photo umbrella saved the morning!
Just pickin under mommie's dress.

 Happy to be finished, looking for our tractor ride back....
 On the tractor ride
