Another Busy Week

I can't believe another week has flown by!  Isn't it supposed to be the dog days of summer?

I've been super busy this month with photo sessions several times a week.  I can't believe how many inquiries I am getting.  It's been awesome, but it also makes the days fly on by!

This past week I shot three wonderful sessions!  All three were fun and exciting in different ways!

The first of the three was this past Saturday.  Brian and Kate, two very good friends from college, came down to visit the hubs and I with their sweet little Ava who is now 3 months old!  It's an extra special treat because I shot her newborn photos when she was less than 2 weeks old.  It was so wonderful to see how much she has grown and changed in 3 short months.

Ava is such a beautiful little baby, and I feel blessed to be able to photograph this incredibly special part of Kate and Brian's lives.

On Wednesday, I had a session with the lovely Ms. Jackie.  I knew that Jackie was wanting a session almost like a second part of senior photos, but the more I got to know Jackie, the more I understood what these photos meant to her.  They are hers to celebrate her personal growth and strength.  In spending the morning with Jackie out on my parents' farm, I realized what a special young lady she really is.  I mean it... she is not only (really) beautiful on the outside, but she is also an extremely hard worker (works two jobs almost daily) and has a good head on her shoulders.  Again, I feel so blessed to photograph this inspiring young lady!

And on to the third shoot of the week, which took place on Friday.  My good friend that I met during my master's program, Jenni, called me up and asked if I would photograph her sweet little Taya at her gymnastics class.  Ughh... that was an easy decision!  Of Course!!!  Taya is one of my repeat photography subjects, so I can't resist getting in my fix of Taya time!  I met up with the girls and we spent a good hour at The Little Gym having a ton of fun.  Seriously, it was about the cutest thing I've seen in a long, long time.  Taya melts my heart every time I see that little girl.  Just when I think she can't get any cuter, she does!  She learned how to do the "Ta-Da" and throw her hands in the air after everything she did... I don't think I could ever get tired of looking at the joy on her face!

So, it's been a busy, but wonderful week.  This week will be more of the same.  I have two sessions, one tomorrow and one Tuesday.  I'm super excited about both!  Also, Dave and I will be getting things ready for our first vacation since our honeymoon almost four years ago!  That's right kids, we've almost been married four whole years!!!  Wowzers...

I'll be checking in before we take off for Door County, Wisconsin on Saturday so be on the lookout for more cutie pie photos!  

Happy weeks to everyone
