the Poppies!!

I've never seen a field full of poppies before. Sunflowers? Sure! Corn? You betcha. Cotton, even? Oh yeah! I just have to say these poppies were stunning! Jana wanted a family shoot done in the poppies so when that field finally exploded into bloom we ran out there to give it a go. The results were fantastic!

I ended up running back out there with my mom (who is visiting from Alabama) to show her that same night. Here are a couple of my landscape shots from later on:

a Lifestyle shoot

Jana and I wanted to schedule a family shoot but she really wanted to wait for the poppies in Mantua to bloom for the pictures. (Now that I've seen that poppy field I don't blame her!) In the meantime I suggested we try a "lifestyle" shoot with her kids in their home. It was so much fun! They pulled out their favorite toys and books and told me all about them as I snapped away. I was even invited back by the oldest to play again! Thanks guys, that was awesome!

Leah's Bridals

This shoot was a bit challenging! Our schedules never seemed to match up. Between her mom (planning a wedding and reception and working), Leah (the same) and me (moving!) - we had a busy month! We finally got together at noon (!!!the worst time of the day to shoot!!!) and got some pretty cool shots. Enjoy!
