Hanna and Joey (just a tiny peek)

I promise that I have more photos (seriously, I'm not sure how I am going to narrow them down!) from this shoot that I want to share with you all. However, I absolutely could not wait another minute, so I decide to give you a tiny taste of the full preview (which will be posted on the blog soon - hopefully by the weekend!).





The R Family

Today I traveled to Davenport to take photos of the R Family. 2 year old Emily is an absolute doll, I just love her curly hair and her pretty polka dot dress!! We went to VanderVeer Park so she could feed the ducks, and enjoy the beautiful sunny day. I just want to say again, thank you Mike & Amy for allowing me the opportunity to take photos of your family! Here are a few of my favorites from the session, I hope you like them!








I will name him George, and I will hug him, and pet him, and squeeze him....

You may be wondering what the title of this post is all about, but if you watched Bugs Bunny as a kid, you probably remember the Abominable Snowman (and if not, check out the video below - at around 22 seconds you'll see what I'm talking about).

My husband Josh was a big fan of Bugs Bunny growing up (oh, who am I kidding...he still is!) and has told me on more than one occasion that when I talk to Einstein I remind him of the (oh so loving) Abominable Snowman featured in the video above. At first I was offended - how dare he compare me to a cartoon snowman!! However, once I watched it, I really couldn't deny that I totally do that to Einstein. Can you blame me? Look at this face - don't you just want to hug him and pet him and squeeze him??


Unfortunately, despite my coaxing, my little fuzzy model wasn't in the picture taking mood yesterday and his posing mostly consisted of this:


What's a girl to do when her model won't cooperate? Offer treats, that always gets the little guy's attention!
