Snow Again!

I have a love-hate relationship with winter.  I’m not a huge fan of being cold, I hate paying my snow plow bill, and slippery driving conditions are the worst.  However, skiing is extremely enjoyable (and sledding!), I love watching the bald eagles flying overhead during the cold months and shooting outdoors in the snow is FUN.

Last year, we only photographed two sessions outside in the snow due to the crazy snow-free winter that we had.  I’ve already rescheduled “snow” sessions for this year due to lack of snow!  (Hopefully today’s snow fall will stick for a week to get those done!)

Not knowing how long this snow will stick for, I decided to drag Emma and the newest member of our family (Dragon, the pug) outside for a couple shots.  It’s so cold out there that the snot was freezing on Dragon’s nose.  It was so cold, in fact, that the first shot of the session was taken at 11:13am and the last at 11:18.  That might rank as one of the shortest sessions yet!

Hope you enjoy the final results!   (The first one is my favorite!)  :D

Last year, as Valentine’s Day pins started showing up all over Pinterest, one in particular caught my attention.  It was cute and I knew our girls would have a blast shooting the pictures in the studio to complete it.   I took their picture with their hand extended all the way out, so that afterwards, we could cut slits into the picture and insert a sucker.

I was right, they did have a blast.  I started with Emma and photographed her in a variety of different poses.  Here is the one she chose….

Next, it was Abbie’s turn.  Abbie is a pro in front of the camera (10+ years of practice!) and she knew exactly what she wanted to do.  What she didn’t want however, was Emma in the picture.  Playing the part of  the “annoying little sister”, Emma ran in the frame and I snapped this shot.  No posing, completely spontaneous.   How could she not choose this shot??

Our oldest, Chris, is in 7th grade this year.  They don’t exchange Valentine’s in middle school.  However, after seeing the girl’s finished cards,  he decided (3 days before V-day, of course!) that he wanted to do them too.  He didn’t want to hold his sucker though, he wanted to “sword swallow” it.   That is a teenage boy for you.  Strange?  Yup.  But clever and we can appreciate that.  Here is Chris’ final product…

 Happy Valentine’s Day!

The Reindeer Puppies!

And for your daily dosage of cuteness — meet the reindeer puppies!
These little guys were birthed and found under a home.  They are approximately 5 weeks old and in a loving foster home.  When asked if we could take a couple shots to help get them adopted, both Jason and I said, “YES!”  They are all adoptable from Al-Van Humane Society.  (Applications can be submitted at http://al-van.org/AV/Adoptapp.html).

From left to right– Vixen(f),  Dancer(m),  Prancer(f), Blitzen(m),  Dasher(m),  Comet(f),  Rudolf(m)

Awwww!
