What a great session…Max is one of the coolest newborns I have met yet. He was so laid back and was up for anything. It was good that he was, his aunt is an awesome hockey goalie, and we had to get some shots of him with all the gear. We had a great time! I can see where Max gets it, his mom was wonderful and fun and I had such a great time getting to know her. Thanks so much for letting me hang out with you guys and spend the afternoon with you and Max. Here’s a few from that day.
I have a couple of other sessions to post, but instead I decided to get some of these images up from the great day I had at the Skagit Valley Tulip Festival. If you can get up there on a weekday when the weather is nice, you will definitely find yourself in an experience like no other. We have tried to go for the last few years. One year we went we took the dogs. Bad idea…no pets allowed. Another year, traffic was a mess and the weather was very cold and rainy. I guess they were all trial runs for yesterday because it could not have been more perfect. Sixty-ish degrees, nice, mild, dry. No traffic, few people. I had a hard time choosing the shots to post, but here are a few from the day. I highly recommend a trip up there, there are many great farms to stop at along the way, the food is fantastic, and it is just a gorgeous part of our great state.
It’s been a long time since I got out and took some pictures of my own dogs. Here’s Bailey and Banjo, our two yellow labs that are as silly and fun as they come. Bailey is quite stubborn and has all the attitude the comes along with it. She’s a total sweetheart though and loves to get hugs and kisses and will do just about anything for a piece of cheese. I love this picture of her, we get this look a lot!
Here is Bails focused on a Diet Coke (actually it was something else my husband was holding she was fixated on) even though he was trying to give her a very yummy cheesy treat. Stubborn!
And then there is our youngest boy Banjo. The most lovable and dopiest dog we have ever had. He is crazy smart, but just super silly and never has a mood other than happy. He is also a non stop licker! This is SUCH a hard habit to break him of!
This is one of my favorite parts of our labs, where the hair comes together and makes lines in their chests. So beautiful!
Finally…what would a set of lab shots be without all the crazy hair they shed. Even though you think you have brushed it all out, they can find a way to shake out more hair. Thankfully this was outside, but usually it’s somewhere in our room near the bed. Sigh. Bailey and Banjo…we love you!
I was so happy and honored to have been a part of this little guys first week. He was not quite five pounds when he was born, and one week later when I got to meet him, he was still the tiniest little guy I have ever met! It took quite some time to get him to crash out and sleep for us, but once he did we got some great shots of him. This shoot was a joint effort…his mom is a fellow photographer friend who I met when I was pregnant with my son. She has always been so sweet to me and encouraging, I was SO thrilled to be able to see her enjoy the thrill of her new precious boy. There is just nothing in the world as great as being a mom. Congratulations again Amanda and Kris, Landon could not be more adorable.
