This is a first… | Perdido Key Beach Photographer

I don’t recall EVER posting previews from a session (that just ended a few short hours ago) to my blog…but here ya go. I just can’t resist. Maybe it’s the fact that they were from “up North” like me…maybe it was the fact that their daughters were so adorable, funny and totally willing to bear hug me when we said goodbye (and asked where I lived…I invited them for tea. Or tea party. Whatever girls do hehe.) Maybe it was the fact that their Mama kept reminding me of India Hicks (if you don’t know who she is look her up. Pronto.). I am aware I’ve met the quota on parentheses, so I digress…the previews, ladies and gentlemen. Full, “official” blog to follow.;)

Every night these two jockey for space in a twin sized bed. When you are a 90 lb. Doberman, chances are, you may win.

Mikey never seems to mind. They talk to each other without saying a word. They have been inseparable since the day we brought home Mikey home from the hospital after he was born. Caesar is 10, almost 11 this year. His nose is covered in age spots, his face is slowly turning white and sometimes he walks a little slower than he used to.

I treasure these moments. Freezing the moment gives me the gift of looking back and being there…with these two. Just they way they are at this very moment.

“A boy and his dog make a glorious pair, no better friendship is found anywhere, for they talk and they walk and they run and they play, and they have their deep secrets for many a day. And that boy has a comrade who thinks and who feels, who walks down the road with a dog at his heels.”
– Edgar Guest

Somewhere over the Rainbow.

I was making dinner tonight…when the light in my house changed instantly. Seemed a little…off.  I walked outside.  And there was this. I’ve never seen anything like it before.

All of my neighbors were out, snapping pics on their phones.  We all joked that it seemed a little, what’s the word, eerie?  Maybe we’ve all just seen too many Armageddon movies. ;o)

I’m trying to find the words to convey how this feels to have my image on a billboard. Where I live, work and play. The fact that it happens to be one of my favorite photos of my youngest son? Priceless.

In a way, it’s a testament to a lot of long hours, lost sleep editing til 2am, racing to sessions, shuffling kids to sitters, soccer practice…trying to get that perfect balance between work and family…all of those moments, make this that much sweeter. I. AM. OH. SO. HUMBLED.

Thank you all so much. I am only as good as the people who surround me and support me everyday.  I’m blessed that not only in my family life, but in my business, my clients, the friendships I’ve made…this statement couldn’t ring more true than right now.

Feeling on cloud nine.

AND…stay tuned. I’m just getting started.
