Whew! Ok, it has taken us a *while* to get these girls together… We planned for a “Snow Shoot” up in the mountains when the snow first dusted Shasta County. Yeah, that was a while ago. Then, we had to reschedule. Then, someone got sick. Then, someone was out of town. Then, someone else got sick. Then, it rained really hard and it was super bad weather. Then, we finally did it! Then, the memory card failed. Oh. Em. Gee. Are you kidding me? Finally, today was the day. The stars aligned and my two funny, beautiful, sweet, wonderful girls came to play in the studio. We were going to go outside, because everything was green and blooming and the weather was holding (it is going to POUR tonight)…. but then we decided to stay in the studio and play with all the different sets we have in the camera room. We never did make it outside. Hmmmm. Why didn’t we do this in the first place? )
Ok, I’m not gonna lie… I love my birthday. I love my birthday weekend. I love my birthday week. I love my birthday month! And I definitely LOVE the number 22! So, I’m feeling extra happy today! One month to go, and it’ll be MY day! Mine all mine!
I’m not sure what it is that makes me love my birthday so much. Is it the presents? The balloons? The candles? Or, more likely than not, it’s the cake. ) It’s also a day I celebrate being old. I haven’t always taken the best care of my skin. But I gotta tell ya, it’s the only skin I’ve got, and I love it. It’s blotchy and dry and a little wrinkly and squidgey around the edges. And let’s not even get into how many freckles there are! But it’s mine and I’ve earned every mark, line, and squiggle. The smile lines are my favorite, although now I’m seeing a lot of my “Oh My” lines on my forehead. Clearly, I’m surprised more than I think I am! ;o)
So – today’s just a day I enjoy… I kick off my birthday celebrations – celebrating me and how great I am.
My hope for you is that you get to love you as much as I love me!
Have a great day out there, y’all!
It’s Sydnie’s turn!!! Her sister came in a few years ago, and this year, it was Sydnie’s turn! Her cousin, mom, and boyfriend all came along for the ride – first up to Old Shasta, then off to Caldwell Park in downtown Redding, and then back to the Studio on Hartnell. Dang, we fit a lot in that day….. I absolutely love Syd’s shiny black hair on our rich red backdrop in the studio! And who could resist that creamy skin up at the barn at Old Shasta… FABulous! Love being able to combine location shoots with our fabulous in-studio portraits. You definitely get something different at Redding’s favorite photography studio!! ;o)
This is Abby. I may be biased, but this is just the cutest baby ever!!! Ok, ok, she’s my granddaughter… ;o) Isn’t she cute though?
Well, look at what we stumbled upon the other day… Testimonials! Wow, I’m blushing – check out how nice they are!!!

Here is a quick, funny little pic of me & Ethan. I handed the camera to mom real quick and we were in some really funky sunlight. So, I probably ended up making Ethan look a little funny – the light is so bright on his nose! Sorry, Ethan!!! Anyway, he was a hoot to work with and I just love his mom & gramma…. really great people! And I just have one thing to say……. GOOSE POOP!!!!! ;o)
