Another great day in Washington

I can end my day again by saying...."wow, what a great day" and "that was soooo much fun". If you ever wonder why I love my work just take a look at the pictures of Lucy. Now these are not your normal senior pictures but they do show how much fun we have. I will post portraits later but for now I simply wanted to share our day!

It was so HOT but I really can not complain because it didn't rain. 86 degrees the last I checked. Lucy handled the heat well but I believe that is because of her athletic training. It was quite cute when it was 86 degrees and Lucy was putting on a wool winter coat with a fur collar. Oh my goodness she was a trooper and so willing to do......

Back to Lucy.... We had a great start this morning bopping around our beautiful town of Washington as the temps climbed. Lucy's mother was great in helping with the little details that I sometimes do not see.

Moms you have been awesome and very helpful!

I want to thank the people of Washington for working so hard to make our city beautiful. The new sidewalks, street lamps and black benches are wonderful. I use the environment so much I feel like I need to pay rent or something. I also want to thank Tim Widmer for his patience this morning. He was dragging a tree through the Kewash underpass as I was working with Lucy and he stopped and waited until we were done. This isn't the first time I interrupted Tim or one of his employees.

To end....what a great day and boy did I have fun!

Hello world!

It has been several weeks since I posted a message, story or pictures. Senior Picture season is here and I have had so much fun being out and about. I wish I could simply take pictures day in and day out and totally forget about all the computer time that goes with it. I enjoy capturing their personalities and trying to create something unique for each one and I ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS get carried away thus there are many pictures to sort and edit! Oh well...I do love it!

The weather has been very challenging as we try to dodge rain drops or thunderstorms. When it is not raining we have to drench ourselves in bug spray and work in humid conditions that cause the "frizzies".

This morning was Lucy's senior session and we started at 8:15 hoping to capture a few images before the big rain set in. We started on the gravel road with Lucy in her bright pinkish prom dress and from time to time we would feel a drop of rain. We then traveled into Washington and as we did it really started raining. We spent a bit of time at the rocket slide then decided to photograph Lucy in the rain with another prom dress! (Notice Lucy's shoes). Tomorrow Lucy, her mother and I will set out once again! I don't think it is suppose to rain but we will have humidity. was fun.
