What’s better than a pretty young lady, a beach, a killer sunset, oh, and a horse? How about . . . not one thing! This sitting was so much fun! I could have stayed for hours longer but when the sun is gone, it’s gone. Baille was joined by her Mom (a.k.a. the horse wrangler) and her Grandma and Grandpa (a.k.a. the horse chauffeur) for her senior photos at beautiful Empire beach. Did you know you can ride a horse on the beach in Empire? Me neither. But we asked the local people in charge and it is a thing.
I did a little testing with my new studio things and background that I got for Christmas. I am really quite pleased with the outcome. Of course, my best test subjects only work for a handful of treats. Hopefully, I will have more time this month to do some further experimenting.
There is nothing better than the first few days after you pick up your new best friend. When they are just weeks old, you have to figure out their habits, their routines, and their personality. Honestly, I expected Lukka, the Akita baby to be spunky but he sat like a little doll. I can’t wait to have him back to sit on those boxes in a few months when he is pushing his 90+ pounds of full sizeness – – it’s going to be hilarious! But, that face!!!
And then there is Ziggy Stardust . . . this little dude is the size of my fist with a serious attitude of full-speed-ahead-play.
I got to spend a few hours on the farm with Pam, Steve, the Boys, and Steve’s awesome old truck to create some new photos for the French Valley Vineyard website and sales collateral.
And yup, that is a dog in a hat.
Natalia and Les are expecting twins this February. They are getting the whole package in one go – they will be having a boy and a girl! I am so excited to watch this family double in size! And I think Daizi is going to be the sweetest guard dog ever!
What can I say about these two idiots!?!? They are my best models, my lighting testers, and of course the butt of most of my jokes. So when I needed to test a few things in the studio with some new flash equipment, they were more than accommodating.
