Gage – Senior 09 | Chillicothe Ohio Senior Photography

0131

Perfect light + guy w/ style = one amazing photo shoot.

I knew I had a reason to be excited to shoot Gage’s senior photos.  We had talked early on, but he wasn’t really “into” senior pictures, so it just didn’t happen for a while.  His mom got a hold of me and said I just needed to pick a day, and Gage wouldn’t argue – “we just need to get them done”.  I knew he wasn’t thrilled about getting his photos taken, but since I am not really a fan of it either (having my photo taken)…we clicked.  Actually, we clicked big.  Gage is into photography too (and is really talented), and I think he knew the feel I was going for once we got started.  I approached this shoot just wanting him to have photos that he liked…something that showed his style & something he loved.

I think it worked.  I think it worked out really well.

Thanks Gage for letting me shoot your senior photos…I am more than thrilled with how they turned out!  And heck, maybe they will be helpful sometime in college (Gage is going to school for music in Orlando, Florida!)

Oh, and if you think I picked to many for the blog…you can’t even imagine how many I ended up with.  You could say there are more than a few ;)

Have a wonderful weekend!  Justin & I are heading to Pittsburg for the weekend with our friends Hayley & Richard!

Annie. | Chillicothe Ohio Children Photography

I love this girl.  Annie now lives in New Mexico and I absolutely could not wait until her & her momma came back to visit, because I knew it was time to do here 1 year pictures!  I always look forward to photoshoots with her…we are at 3 now, but I have a feeling will have many more :)

I can’t believe how fast they are growing up, and I am thrilled that their families want that documented. Here are a few of my favorites!

*and of course there are a few of Annie & Sophie!chillicothe ohio children photography

Update on the dog situation.  I *love* all the name suggestions!  I have had them pouring in from the blog, twitter & facebook…there are some good contenders!  However, I have decided to not pick a name just yet.  Simply because when we got home last night she was gone…and I was a bit more upset than I expected.  Ok, a lot more upset.  She did however come bounding around the house with a stick to play fetch when Justin went out this morning…and she is currently soaking in the sun on the porch.  I do think I will give it a few more days though…I attach a bit too easily, but keep those names coming!

A new dog?!

dog1

So this is the situation.  Yesterday during the storm, I had this momma dog wobble up on my porch.  Usually I don’t think anything about it…we get a lot of stray dogs out here, or just neighbors dogs roaming around.  Well, this dog was different from those…she was soo hungry!  Of course I didn’t have any dog food laying around, so after about a half loaf of bread she decided this might not be such a bad place to stay during the storm (or so I thought).

She’s still here today.  And yes, I just bought a giant bag of dog food.

I already know what you are thinking…”that is no way to get rid of a stray dog”.  The thing is, I don’t mind if she stays :)  I am such a dog person, so the fact that I don’t have one, well, it’s kind of sad.  We are in a great area for a dog, but just didn’t want to add the extra expense at the time…but there is no way I will let a dog go hungry.

So that’s where we are.  Problem…I need a name!  And yes, I know what you are saying now, “you can’t name a stray”.  Well, too bad.  I’m gonna! She is the most precious dog, and to be completely unbiased…she is the most well behaved dog I have ever met.  Not only did she just lay there and let mom pick off all 32 ticks while she started to bleed, she also knows commands…and get this, she went out of the yard, across the driveway, and to the other side of the creek to do her business!  No, I am not kidding!

If you do happen to know who this dog belongs to, please, please let me know.  More than anything I want her to be back with her family, she is obviously trained very well.  However, if she was just dropped off (I have no idea how anyone could do that!) please at least let me know her name.

Thank you very much…and now, meet my new (maybe temporary) dog.  Please leave all name suggestions in the comments section!  I’ll be sure to let you know what we pick!
