Working With Lighting

Anybody who knows me knows that I try to do all of my portraits using natural lighting and reflectors if necessary.....Yesturday I got in my super small studio and practiced with them on Kinley......And then I remembered why I dont like to use them....I CANT FIGURE THEM OUT!..... I think I did OK, but before they were perfect, I gave up...Natural lighting is much easier for me to work with. And if I dont get it right...............Thats OK!

Our New puppy, Anna Belle

Well, its been almost a week now and Hazie has came around. I caught him holding Anna Belle when I got out of the shower the other day.....I knew it wouldnt be long before he fall in love with her like we have. Kinley just adores her. She has been dressing her up in baby doll clothes, pushing her in a baby stroller and even trying to feed her a baby bottle.....And Anna Belle lets her.....lol
Just thought I would post a pic so you could see just how sweet she is............

I am almost DIVORCED!

Oh dear Lord help me......lol!

Yesturday my brother called me asking if Kinley wanted a 5 week old Jack Russel Puppy. My first thought was awwwww how sweet, yes she can have him. But then I remembered that Hazie said if I bring one more animal to our house, he will divorce me.....LOL! For those of you who really know me, I am a sucker for any animal that needs a home. NO MATTER WHAT KIND IT IS....... So I told Clint No. Well his response was, I am on the way and will be there in 15 minutes. Oh Man I said. Get here before Hazie gets home and I can make up a lie that he MIGHT just believe.....hehe!

Well, Clint gets here and Kinley falls in love right away, the puppy licked her face and she said " MOM SHE LOVES ME".......How in the heck could I say NO.

So we kept her. Kinley came in for a bath, I out the puppy which is SUPER tiny in a basket with a sweater and I here Hazie pull up in the yard.......Well As soon as Kinley hears him come in the door, she hollers from the bathroom.........."Daddy Look what Uncle Clint brought me, shes in the basket"........HAHA! I start sweating and imediatley he says if its something we have to feed you better find him a home.

Well, needless to say he has not spoken to me since and Boy is he MAD......LOL!

But Kinley sure is happy so I guess thats all that matters right???

Do any of you have an extra bed for me, Kinley and her new puppy AnnaBelle????

Playing Cowboy

Yesturday we spent the day Playing Cowboy. We had to move our cows from a field here on the farm to a field down the road. When we fed them to get them in the pen, I saw the perfect photo op. I sent Lane inside for my camera and captured Kinley doing what she loves.....Feeding our cows. Of course, then she started posing when she saw i had the camera.

Sundays Photo Shoot

I had a shoot yesturday afternoon by the river. It was so nice. The river is such a perfect place to relax and wind down. I just wanted to stay there and do nothing.....
I got several really nice shots of the couple. They were great sports about the whole thing. I think I might take Kinley and Lane down there soon to get some new photos for my wall.
Here is one of my FAV shots from the day!

Kinley was sick all day yesturday! I guess she got some stomach bug....YUCK! I spent all day washing blankets, towels, rugs, clothes, couch cushions....pretty much everything in the house. Bless her heart, she cant keep anything down and I am run ragged!!!! I pray that God will take this mess away and not let anybody else in the house get it!! I sure hope that tomorrow is a better day for us both!

My Favorite New Prop

My Newest Prop

Today I will start this blog. I want my friends and family to be able to keep up with my work and accomplishments....... I dont know that I will post everyday, but I will do my best.

This week I was lucky enough to come across an ad where a lady was giving away an arm chair. I was looking for one to add to my evergrowing props. I called her and she said come pick it up. I was sooo excited! I didnt really care what color, print or even what shape it was in, I just wanted one. I got there to pick and up and man was I LOVE with it!!!! ITS GORGEOUS! When we got home, it was too dark for photos, but the next day Kinley and I made sure to have a photo shoot with my new chair. I think it turned out great in these photos.......
