"When Life throws you a lemon make lemonade"

I like lemonade, I don't like lemon's which is why I like this quote. Saturday was a very interesting day. I agreed to come into work only expecting to work until 12pm. It was going to be a busy day becasue it was Easter weekend, by the time 12 came around we had two employees call in sick with no back up pizzas and tons of orders. Needless to say I was there until 3 and my photo shoot was scheduled for 4. Oh and did I mention I had my interview too? Talk about being stressed.

When I finally got off work I sped home and called Bruce I was braking down, I wanted this shoot with Shauna and Tyler to be amazing becasue well, these two people are just amazing. I was hoping we'd beat the rain, but right when I got to our location the rain came and it rained hard. Bruce very lovingly calmed me down and got me going again. BOY DO I LOVE MY MAN.
To my relief, the rain stopped as soon as Shauna and Tyler pulled in and gave us a good 45 mins of shooting time beforeit rained again. Since it was coming down so hard we headed inside (which I've never done) and took some pretty sweet shots. All in all it was a blessing it rained, I tried something new and we got to use Shauna's umbrella which I think made the pictures kind of unique in a way.

I slept so good that night...what a crazy Saturday. Sometimes I ask myself why I try to juggle shoots with working full time, then I come home and SEE the final product and I remember why I love doing it so much.

Here are just "a few" of my favorite:

Jimmy, Holly and Duncan Maternity/ Family photos

So this is a "trying something new part two" post.... We went out after conference yesterday to take these because the sun was actually out.=) This photo shoot was every photographers dream, they came dressed in COLOR, we new each other and this family has SO much personality it was hard not to take pictures of everything they did.
The whole time I was taking pictures of Holly I'd get more and more jealous! Is that even possible to be jealous of a pregnant woman?! Ok, Ok I know they tell us at church not to covet you neighbor...but com'on people check out how awesome she looks and she is due in just a couple of weeks! Man I hope I look like that when I'm pregnet.=)

Plus I tried a few things I wouldn't normally try on someone I didn't know very well. The umbrella was a new idea, Holly even had a few ideas as well that urned out pretty cool. it was tons of fun though. Duncan was absolutely adorable, need I say more? was hard to pick just a few so here are a few more than i normally post.
