Today, I just have a little short, sweet blog post. I have had a nice little breather for the past week or so after a quite normal frantically paced Spring Senior Portrait Season. On top of the crazy busy time with last minute senior portrait clients and sessions, I also shot two weddings in March that were finished and delivered to both couples by the first week of May; a total of about 2,400 images just with the weddings! I’ve been coming in to the studio just a little bit later this past week and spending time at home with my new little puppy, Zoey. I’ve been busy working on updating my Senior Magazine for the Class of 2013 and making some changes to my packages and prices. I’d much rather be shooting pictures! I was so happy that I got to do that yesterday and today! I just wanted to share one picture from each.
First up, yesterday’s Best Friend’s Carnival Shoot! I’ve wanted to do a shoot at a carnival forever. I found out one was in town and of course, since I have a Senior for the Class of 2013, I had a ready made model and friends! It was seriously windy and it affected the shoot more than I wish, but I captured some really fun and perfect pictures of these good friends. If any of you high school seniors out there want to do your senior portrait session at the Johnson County Fair this year, I’m in. Just book me for that week in August and we will have a BLAST!!

After the carnival photo shoot, I headed over to Church of the Harvest to snap some photos of the youth ministry, EncounterOlathe, hosting a huge end of school celebration and worship service called The Bash! Just 5 short, or long, years ago I was leading the youth at Church of the Harvest and I definitely realized something last night, I am most definitely too old for it now! Just joking – I’m not too old for anything, except maybe short shorts and belly button rings! But, it was just awesome to be there and feel the excitement!
Today I was SO blessed to meet little Miss Nora! Just 5 days old and the daughter of one of my first wedding couple! It was such a thrill to see Jason and Amanda again. You can see them here for their ENGAGEMENT SESSION and here for their WEDDING DAY! I’m not gonna lie, newborn sessions are hard work. First, you have to keep your studio warm and toasty. All of the adults in the studio were sweating it up, but Nora was as happy as a clam. She was just amazing and such a great little model. I can’t wait to share all the pictures, but for now, one of the first images I took of her. Precious!
