Katie & Bryan

 The day of this shoot – WINDIEST DAY EVER.  Ask Katie – watering eyes, hair all over the place, crazy!  It was SO windy, that Katie almost fell over just walking!!!  And Bryan was a great sport – I’m sure he was sitting there thinking, “This girl is NUTS to have us doing this today.”  Sorry Bryan!  But I loved the results…  And yes, I was in a black & white “mood” with a lot of theirs…   🙂

Hard to reach

So I’m SNEEZING my head off right now – I think the Louisiana Pollen has finally overtaken my immune system.  I’ve been shooting two sessions a day – one in the morning with about 1 1/2 hour breaks – just enough time to eat lunch and load, back up, charge batteries, and clear my cards before my second one in the afternoon.

Coffee & lattes have been my best friend lately.  So if you’re in the “hood” and would like to send me a random treat – 1 vanilla latte will do the trick.  🙂

My mom surprised us with a box of Raisin Caine’s chicken (& sauce!) when I got home tonight.  No cooking – yay!  So that was a treat, too.

But yes, I’m a little hard to get ahold of right now via phone, so email is THE best way to reach me.  Kristan & I will be out of town all day tomorrow for an amazing family session, so once again – I’ll be out.

My adgenda for the rest of this week?

Wednesday:  Out of town

Thursday:  Appointment in LC from 9-10:30, another one here at the studio from 11 to 1, engagement session at 3:00

Friday:  Session at 10 (to 11:30), Senior from 1 – 3, then leave for Keely’s out of town wedding at 4:00 – and I’m gone ’til Sunday.

Then my week starts all over!

Buice family

 Meet the sweetest family.  Nesha & Marsh just had their first little girl, who was preceded by FOUR boys!  Little McKenzie is so tiny & precious.  She did great for her newborn session! 

Marsh is a pretty cool guy.  😉  He is the General Manager at Mark Dodge here in Lake Charles.  I always meant to have a post just to RAVE about how amazing the people & customer service is at that dealership.  Having two best friends from Mark Dodge (Bryan & Jessica) and getting to know so many others (Blake, Gary, Otis!), including the Bonials, I cannot say enough about how great they are as people & a business.  So, it was an honor to have Marsh introduce me to his family.

And, needless to say – I love Nesha!  She was absolutely gorgeous and so patient (as was Marsh) even though we had a little “spill” halfway through…   🙂

Okay – to my favorites…

Morgan & Danny

 So Morgan is a little on the “nutty” side.  And YES, she takes that as a compliment.  And I LOVE that about her!  She’s one of those awesome girls you come across in this business that you KNOW you’ve made a true friendship even after the “Mrs.” is married.   🙂  Danny – JUST as cool.  You just can’t help but love these two and when you’re around them, their light-heartedness and laughter is just contagious.

Morgan had the great idea to head up to Danny’s family farm just North of DeQuincy for their session.  Awesome.  I was told minature donkeys would be there.  🙂

What we DIDN’T know until the day of the shoot was that it would be the “Louisiana Snow Day”.  We just don’t get snow around here.  So, as we’re getting out of our cars, sure enough – Danny & I see flurries.  THAT IS COLD.  WAY colder than what I’m comfy shooting in.  BUT, we were there, the donkeys were there, and his awesome dad had a big pot of fresh coffee ready for us to defrost with.  So it worked!

My favorite shot:

Meet the donkeys.  They kept an eye on us throughout the entire afternoon.  This picture just cracks me up.

Every once in awhile, the sun would peak through the clouds and this amazing light would come out.

And, as most of my girls know:  If you bring awesome shoes, they WILL end up on the blog!

Silver shoes in a muddy barn.  Love it.

Cool short story behind this shot:  Morgan was recently (like 6 weeks ago) in a bad car accident and broke her ankle.  She’d bought these jeans for their session and had them on the night of the accident.  They were cut off of her in the ER.  So, Morgan, being so COOL, took them home and with her many hours she was laid up in bed, found an awesome way to stitch them back up!  (Kristan and I both asked where she bought them – I wanted a pair- and it totally threw me off when she said she did it herself!) 

She actually has a pretty bad ankle under those cute jeans and was able to “tread lightly” for her entire session without any crutches.  Yay Morgan!

And – last note – Morgan & Danny are both AMAZING local artists.  They are both EXTREMELY talented.  So if you ever need to contract any artistic work out, these are the guys to call.    🙂
