Seniors - Cameron

This photo session with Cameron was lots of fun.  Well, aside from the fareeezzzing temperatures.  Cameron has a fun personality and he's a manly guy with style.  How often does that combo happen?!  AND...he's very you'll see.  Here are just a few of my favorites.  But I gotta warn you - I have lots of favorites. It was hard to choose.

What'd I tell you?  Great shoes Cameron!  :)

Lessons from a dog

Someone once emailed me a quote about life lessons we could learn from dogs. Several items – like be loyal, take naps, and never pass up the opportunity to go for a joyride – were really good advice. But my favorite was “When loved ones come home, always run to greet them”. Not only do dogs run to greet their loved ones, but they wag their tail and wiggle all over. Why don’t we do that? Show people we care about just how happy we are to see them?

This is my new baby Jorga (pronounced Georgia – and don’t hate – I didn’t choose the spelling). She makes it very clear that she’s excited when I get home.

This is her happy face because she's experiencing one of her first chances to run free and play. 
I adopted Jorga from Purdue's vet school and she has lived in a kennel much of her life. She was SO excited to be able to run around in the field and the creek at my sister's house.

She loves her "frogger" too.  Frogger is currently hanging up to dry.  Ewww.

Although Alfred isn't quite as expressive with his feelings, he has ways of showing that he cares.  Like laying on my face in the morning when he wants me to wake up.

Personal - VACA in Florida!

Florida is just a wonderful place to be this time of year.  A few days of warmth and sunshine can just do wonders.  Spending time with my sisters and parents was pretty nice too. :)
Dad showed us this pond/swamp area where the storks roost in the evenings - we're talking hundreds of them!
Ahhh...the beach
Tarpon Springs is this really cool Greek village where they do a lot of sponge harvesting.  
And they were having a sponge festival while we were there so some of the streets were blocked off and street bands were playing.

There are also lots of stores that attract tourists.  Like us.

Probably my favorite picture of the whole trip - Mom and Yia Yia.  Love it.

One thing that I strive very hard for when taking photographs is to capture personality.  I don't know how well I succeeded with Tyler, but I can tell you this - if you know him, you are lucky; if you don't, I wish you could.  He is smart, fun, sweet, athletic, just an all-around great guy. And he's my nephew! :) Here are just a few of his senior pics.  You'll be seeing more of him in the near future.
Love you Taller, and I'm proud to be your aunt.

Ummmm.  Yes, girls, he's single.  But you have to go through me.  And my rigorous screening process.
