I have so many sessions to share and, as always, I vow to attain the seemingly mythical "caught up" status soon!  For today, I just have to share the smiling Bella!

My grandmother always used to say "If wishes were horses, beggars would ride."  It took me a long time to figure out what that meant and even longer to realize that her fondness for the phrase might mean that grandma wasn't exactly a starry-eyed optimist. : )  But nevertheless, today I can't help but think to myself "if wishes were pigs," then my puppy Buttercup might be having an even better birthday.

Wishing you a day of birthday cake-shaped hot dogs and bacon, sweet doggie!

Happy 1st birthday, Buttercup, aka Her Royal Highness Princess Buttercup, Butterific, Butterlicious and, most commonly, Butters.

(And yes . . . when you consider that I could have put a birthday hat on the dog, doesn't a poppy-festooned collar show marvelous restraint?)

I'm putting the finishing touches on a gallery today and this guy made me smile. :)  Enjoy the weekend, all!  Lots of blog posts from last weekend's workshop will be coming soon. :)

Every winter, like many of my photographer friends, I take time to rejuvenate, get creative, and just plain exhale from the holiday exhaustion.  This year I vowed to take off completely and utterly between Christmsa and January 5th.  In a move not surprising to anyone who knows me . . . I went the other way. :)  I added on a last-minute hardcore business workshop in Nashville and so instead found myself finishing client galleries from December (that I was going to get to after the 5th), scrambling to get my financial records in tip-top shape, and heading to Nashville on the 6th for four days of managerial accounting, sales, and marketing chatter.  It was rejuvenating, in a way.  Just a very busy bee sort of way to "relax." :)

I did take a true break here and there, however, and managed to photograph all three of my children.  


My oldest.

My middle child, who is already like me in so many ways. :)

And my youngest, who has doubled in size since December 1st. psst--if anyone knows how to get the youngest and oldest to be friends rather than play the hiss-and-dash game, I'm all ears!

A quick announcement just for photographers--a special offer will be heading out next week to those of you who inquired about workshops and consulting/mentoring opportunities.  If you are interested in adding your name to this list, just send me an e-mail this weekend!  Thank you!

I'll be meeting some special newborn twins this weekend, so the blog is sure to be filled with cuteness next week. See you then!
