Charla Blue...and Brookie too!

Charla is one of my favorite people. She and her sweetie babe, Brooklyn, are a constant source of joy and inspiration for me and my family. There is a constant flow of good energy that we seem to share, and I have to think that every time she or B steps in front of my camera, it's like a little party - and I always leave thankful I was invited. Brooklyn was one of my first little Jack and Lola muses. She has a way in front of the camera that always has me snapping as fast as my finger will let me and grinning from ear to ear. Truly, and artists daughter. She is a gorgeous little treat with a salt of the earth kinda soul. I just love her!

Charla Blue Photography  was in need of some new photos to go along with her lovely new branding ( check it out...and should be looking to get hitched, she is no doubt, your gal)  and I was beyond pleased to help her with it! 

Here are just a few of her shots from our shoot tonight.

And this is Steven, her adorable brother. He has an amazing gift for putting things in their place. With any eye for space and style, he is a GEM to work with!!!

Charla Blue, a darling photographer with a passion for travel and a heart for all things amore. 

The Gustafson Family ... life in a contact sheet.

Piglet sidled up to Pooh from behind.  "Pooh!" he whispered.  "Yes, Piglet?"  "Nothing," said Piglet, taking Pooh's paw.  "I just wanted to be sure of you."  ~A.A. Milne

I share my images and feelings about this family often. Sure, she
is my dearest friend, and her children are little stars in my sky,
and she continues to amaze me every year we grow a little older...she grows better : )
This contact sheet was a little challenging. For one, I have SO much material, and two, my desire to make it 'perfect' for her is much like my desire to hand make my 5th grade boyfriends valentine...a hot mess.
Here you are my dear. Merry Christmas and I love you 
all SO MUCH - hot mess and all!


The Hubbard Family

Hello Hubbards!



Lily (aka 'Pants')

These three sisters couldn't be more differentt

...but one is just as goofy as the next.

...just like their mom and dad!

While we were shooting, things got all northwest on us and we had to run for cover to escape torrential downpour!

(It's good to know some things never change)

Our shelter from the rain was an icecream shop

Then, the rain cleared, and we resumed our fun outdoors!

Thanks so much for a wonderful day Nik and Deja! You have a fantastic family and i adored meeting them! xoxo
