It has been busy round these parts…I know I always say that, but it is always busy.  I should just get used to it.  But I digress…

A couple weeks ago, the talented Tara of Winsor Photography asked me to second shoot with her for some wedding formals.  I jumped at the chance, and we had a great time!  I always love to learn from other photographers.

So I have been processing the photos that I took at that shoot and today was preparing to crop a nice photo of the bride and groom when I spotted an intruder in the photo.  Highly distracting (at least to me), I did a double take.  Then I zoomed in to see if it was really just a reflection, maybe of the bride’s mother, in the window.  A trick of light?  Nope.

A Cinderella doll (think Barbie-sized) peeking through the window of the reception hall behind the couple?  It couldn’t be.  So I asked my 7 year old to look.  She immediately confirmed my suspicions.  My 5 year old had to have it pointed out to her.  My husband also identified the intruder as the elusive girl who lost a glass slipper in the famous fairy tale.  Who knows how she got there or what she was doing…personally, I think she was there to check out the bride’s dress and wish them a wonderful happily ever after.

Yes, I know it’s lame to tell you the story without sharing the photo, but I can’t post the session until after this beautiful couple ties the knot.  And even then, Cinderella doesn’t belong in their special day…they have their own fairy tale to live out.


Here are some photos of a different kind of princess:

I got together with these two cute girls (and their mom) for some photos not long ago…we had fun, even though J was trying hard not to smile.  We finally had to give up on her for the day, but baby sister G gave us plenty of smiles and laughs!

Wow.  This was fun!  For the second week of the class I’ve been taking it was all about kids…so I had a 3 year old, a bunch of 6 year olds, a couple 8 year olds, and a 4 year old all thrown into the mix.  Of course, it happened to be a week of crazy-busy-ness as well, so I decided to try to shoot as much as I could all in one day.  So everyone but the 8 year olds came for a photoshoot one afternoon last week and then the 8 year olds came a couple days later.  These kids all know each other and have been friends for a while, so they were all very comfortable around each other.  The only exception was my 3 year old friend.  I think she was a little overwhelmed by all the bigger kids.  I did manage to get a few cute photos of her as well, though.  Enough chatting from me…how about some photos?

Thanks to my friends who brought their kidlets by for photos!  I hope it was as fun for you all as it was for me!
