We first meet Leslie and Sue at the playground years and years ago (and by playground I mean the dog park) where our children played nicely together (and by children I mean dogs). This went on for a while until one day my husbands burst through our front door and exclaims “Leslie and Sue got a baby!”. And I say “what do you mean they GOT a baby”. Well, they adopted Ben. Ben is now an an adult, or so they say. For his entire life I’ve had the privilege of photographing him, as you can see it’s not a hardship.
In October little Raymond (v2 as I like to call him) turned 2. A quick plane ride to Boise is all took to get home-made cake, icecream, baby bowling, visiting and a stop at the zoo.
Ah, baby bowling. How can you not love it. It’s a right of passage isn’t it. Even when Raymond get’s bossy and tells me to stop taking his picture and get in the darn pool.
After all the festivities we went to the Boise Zoo. First stop the carousel. Madison was a seasoned pro and totally knew what to do. Raymond took a while to figure it all out but I’m guessing it won’t be his last carousel ride.
One of my favorite things about the Boise zoo is the ground squirrels exhibit. It’s awesome. People get to walk in these tunnels the pop their heads up like the squirrels. At which point you are on eye level with the busy busy squirrels.
O.k.-at the risk of sounding like a bad adult, this was totally worth the price of admission. Madison ran up to check out the big brass sculpture of an elephant. Little did she know that it had a motion sensor and sprayed water when triggered. It was frigging awesome!
Lily, Lily, Lily!-how you nail it each and every year. I’ve been photographing Lily since she was 6 months old and every year it gets better and better. Between her sassyness and her Mom’s amazing styling it’s like shooting fish in a barrel I tell ya.Love, love, love this photo! I mean come on!, so couldn’t have gotten that cat to cooperate if we tried.
Yes we’re on the railroad tracks. And YES I looked both ways. No we weren’t in danger. Technically we weren’t ON the tracks but between them, so even if a train came we would have been safe…..geez Mom.
I recently had a fantastic engagement session and I just got to share it! OMG did we have fun. and no booze were involved. Imagine that.
In less than 2 weeks Will and Holly will be tying the knot. No more kissing carnies for these two…that is unless they have a career change. This concept had been bouncing around in my little pea-brain for a while. They were the PERFECT couple, no wait, they are the PERFECT couple.
Meet Miss Anya. This little cutie pie use to be my neighbor. Still she doesn’t live too far away, but it’s not like we see each other in the alley anymore. Today she turns 5 and has been on my mind all day. Tomorrow I plan to walk to her house for a much needed visit.
It started out so good, the light, the leaves, the color, the texture and then it all went so wrong. Anya went one way and Sanford the dog went the other. All though this last image make me giggle every darn time. I guess you have to be just a bit twisted.
Last week I met Tom and his Mom at the Olympic Sculpture Park to do his high-school senior photos. I’ve done a number of session at the park and I must confess the last one left a sour taste in my mouth. But I’m happy to say that Tom and his mom totally and completely wiped that taste away. phew-cause it’s a pretty popular place.
I met Tom at The Bush School where I provide all the year book photos-we’ve known each other for a good ten years or so. But now I’m happy to say I really know Tom. It was a lovely way to spend an afternoon. Good luck in college Tom. Go class of 2011!
