My Class of '09 Senior Models were back in front of the lens this evening for their studio shots. Alyshia and Emily did great jobs striking their poses and working the camera! Both are beautiful girls; and we were so glad to have the opportunity to photograph them for their senior portraits! Here are a few previews from the evening (click to enlarge).

Meet Buddy. Whoever came up with the whole "gentle as a little lamb" never met Buddy, a demon goat from some farm of the the nether regions of Tennessee! Nah, Buddy actually turned out to be alright! Saturday, my friend Marty and I shot some Easter pics on location at the Simmons' farm in Big Cove, Alabama. We had, I think, a total of 22 sittings for the day; and probably between 35 and 40 kids. By the end of the day, Marty, Buddy, and I, were absolutley smashed! Most of the kids really loved interacting with Buddy, of course a lot of them thought he was just a funny looking dog. We did have a few meltdowns; but out of those, almost every one of them recovered enough to have some good times with ole Buddy.
This is me and Buddy taking a break and relaxing in the sun. It was a beautiful day!
This little man was ready! I really thought the lamb would scare most of the little kids; but it never phased this guy!
I can't even remember this little feller's name; but he was so cute. I loved this candid moment I caught of him in deep thought!
Yep, we even had some little bitty babies. Hayden (one of three Hayden's we had for the day) was just under a month old!
One of our few meltdowns. This is Morgan, my cousin's daughter. She didn't think too fondly of Buddy at first; but after a few minutes she loved him too. I just had to share this picture though because I thought it was hilarious!
Katie loved Buddy! She did such a good job for her shoot!

Everybody else has been sick, so I guess my computer might as well be too... it has it's first virus! So if you have jobs pending with me, they might be a little extra delayed (as if I wasn't already behind). Holler at me with any questions!

I don't think I'm going to have time to do a full day of mini-sessions at the studio this year (again)! But if you're interested in booking a mini-session similar to the V-day shoot, let me know; and we'll try to set-up maybe a couple of evenings specifically for this. BUT, for those of you in Madison County (or those willing to travel to Madison County), my friend, Marty, and I are going to be doing an Easter mini-session day on Saturday, March 21, at a farm in Big Cove. The shoot will feature a live lamb!!! Marty says I'm in charge of it; but I beg to differ!!!. MARTY had a little lamb, not Shannon! :) I've never worked with live animals (besides kids); and so I'm anxious to see how this goes! We've already booked 20 sessions; and it was only announced yesterday! Yikes! If you want more information regarding these mini-sessions, just shoot me an email!
