Twins in a basket

Charlie and Toto did really good for their first studio session!  The key was to have everything in place and add the puppies at the last instant.  My good assistant had treats ready to get their attention.  Remember Toto is the smaller puppy though it is hard to tell who is smaller in these images.  Charlie has a black spot on the right side of his chest and only one ear that stands up and Toto has the tan eyebrows.  I think when they get older, both of their ears will stand up.  They only will be cute little puppies once so I want to get plenty of babies portraits while they are in this stage.  Enjoy!

Kayaking at the Farm

Since swimming is one of my favorite pastimes, it was especially fun to photograph Weston with his kayak this morning at the Farm.  Weston made for some good action shots while he navigated the waters at the larger pond on the property.  We also used some timber that was lying around as props for a few poses. Weston's favorites of his kayak and timber poses are included below for you to enjoy!

Weston's HS Senior Portraits on the Farm

Weston's favorites below are from his first HS senior portrait session at his favorite spot--the Farm.  The first image recently had a roof added to it.  We traveled around the farm on their ATV which is shown as a background in one of the images below.  Weston's favorite image was taken in front of a windmill on the property and we converted it to sepia. Soon, Lord willing and weather permitting, we will be photographing his next session which will be one of Weston's favorite activities on the water, so stay tuned. :)

Meet Charlie and Toto Smith

Meet Charlie and Toto, our new 8-week old Rat Terrier puppies.  Toto is smaller than his brother and has tan eyebrows and tan on his cheek.  The first image below is of Toto.  We picked them up yesterday in Marysville, Kansas, and life has been hectic trying to potty train these two brothers.

Rat Terriers are known to be digging escape artists who are true terriers: fiesty, funny, energetic, lively, vermin-chasing, and incapable of being boring.  President Theodore Roosevelt is said to have given the breed its name after his own terrier had eradicated the rat infestation at the White House; clearly, the Rat Terrier excels as a public servant--as long as its in its own best interest.

Their first portraits are of them in their first sleeping arrangement.  Even though Toto is smaller, he is the one that escaped out of his sleeping basket last night.

Austin's Studio Session

I don't know of any teenager more easy going than Austin.  I think he favors his grandpa so much.  Too bad he wasn't available to take portraits with Austin this time. :(  With Austin's three outfits we used our popular brown canvas that went well with his executive style outfit; our military style background that his mom liked for the wrinkles (I hate background wrinkles!); and our popular white background that went so well with Austin's skin tones and outfit.  For fun, we through in a fish-eye picture of Austin wearing a cowboy hat and his cowboy boots.  I have include our favorites for you to enjoy!

Granddaughter portraits and a family portrait at the mall

My granddaughter, DaShane, and her mom came to spend the night, and of course we had to throw in some studio portraits.  The day before we stopped by the mall with her mom and dad and took a family portrait in the mall since it was sooooo windy outside!  DaShane has grown up into a beautiful young lady and I am busting at the buttons to show off her and her family portraits!  Enjoy!
