So, ever since I started this blog Coney (affectionately also known as Conehead) has been begging for her own post!  And since she is so darn cute I finally decided to give in!  I mean, who could say no to this face:

Yes, she is adorable and she knows it!!  This little bundle of joy came into our lives a little over a year ago and makes me laugh and yet frustrated each and every day.  She is the smartest dog I have ever come across and also the most adamant one.  She could play fetch for hours upon hours!  Even right now as I'm writing this she is starting up at me with those enticing little eyes!  Guess it's time to play some ball....

Amy & Matt: Engagement

Whew!  I have taken some time off blogging to move into my new house (more on that later), but today I am back with an amazing session that I am so beyond excited to share!  On Saturday, at literally the crack of dawn, I met up with Amy and Matt to shoot their engagement pictures.  This was the first time I had met this couple and my first official engagement session!  Needless to say, I was nervous going into it, but after meeting Amy and Matt and chatting for a few minutes I felt so much better!  This couple is fun-loving and rarely stops laughing/smiling...which makes for great pictures!  Amy and Matt, I hope you had as much fun as I did and I hope you LOVE your pictures!  Thank you for getting up so early (especially Matt!) and for rocking it in front of the camera!

Also, I am proud to say this session was photographed 100% in manual mode!

I have 3 exciting things to share with you all today!  First off, the hubby's birthday was this week!  Happy Birthday, Love!  Sadly, he had to work all day, and I literally mean all day, like from 5 am to 7 pm.  Insert sad face here.  But I kept busy by making him some cake pops to enjoy when he was finally able to come home!  I don't want to brag, but they were bomb!

Second, when logging in to write this post I realized that I have reached over 1,000 views of my blog since it began!  WOW!  I'm not even sure if I believe it because I don't think Blogger is the most accurate site in the world, but I'm going to celebrate anyway.

And lastly, but perhaps most importantly, David and I bought a house this week!  Our first home sweet home!  We are home owners and thinking about that is absolutely insane.  I am so excited to begin decorating and styling to make our house into a home.  At our apartment I never really saw the point in decorating too much or hanging pictures because apartments are only temporary, so this is really the first time I will be putting my decorating skillz to use.  I'm very anxious to find out if I even have any decorating skillz!!  Thanks to this blog, as I transform my house and post before and afters, you can all judge whether or not I have decorating skillz.  This is such an exciting time in our lives, add to that a possibly budding photography career, and I can't ask for anything more.  David and I have been extremely blessed and are so grateful for all of the love and support that surrounds us.

Liam: BMX Session

I had a blast photographing almost 2 year old Liam!  But it was also extremely challenging!  This kid was moving non stop and I had a hard time keeping up!  I was shooting in Aperture Priority mode and a great majority of my pictures came out blurry...time to read up on shooting motion!  This little guy is going to be a BMX racer and already flies so fast on his bike!  I know this first shot is a little blurry, but I like it!
