I love my children! Yes that deserves an exclamation point. We are so blessed to have such fun personalities a plenty in our little ones. They keep us going all the time. I was on the phone today with Liga while she was at home and I said, "You know, it is never quiet there when the kids are awake. They are always doing something. Something LOUD!" They are so full of life all the time and truly enjoy all the little things there is to do. But sometimes they actually get tired and sleep. Even if it doesn't happen till 10:30 sometimes after an hour long battle, they sleep. And they are so precious with their little eyelashes and mouths, closed by the way, that I can't help but to want to lay down with them and stay in that moment for a few hours. So here is to kids, mischief, endless energy, and most importantly sleep. And we will do it all again tomorrow.

Sometimes sleep happens in peculiar places! Wagon rides or restaurant tables.

Karisa and Joe

Look at this beautiful couple that we got to photograph and get to work with again tomorrow!   By the time that I am typing and posting this it will officially be Karisa and Joe's wedding day! This shoot was a little out of the ordinary and that made it a lot of fun.   We met Joe and Karisa up at Whipps Ledges for some hiking and to get to know the dogs before the big day.  The dogs were a blast to play with and hike with.  As you can see from the images, Joe and Karisa are awesome people to hang with which makes our job so much easier.  They are both so easygoing and easy to talk to that I almost forgot we were supposedly "working."  And I think I learned more about birds that day than I ever did in biology class thanks to Karisa.  After wandering around on the trails for awhile, we busted out the propane grill and had dinner at the park.  And wow can Joe make some burgers!  Liga and I had so much fun with you two and are glad to call you friends.  Hope all goes well today and can't wait to photograph the wedding.

I think someone was pouting and feeling left out!
