A Gorgeous Family

The weather finally gave us a break and I was able to go out and photograph this GORGEOUS family! We were snowed out the first date...that's right snow already! And then rained out for the rescheduled shoot. I had my doubts we were actually going to get this in before the year's end!

S is one of my very best friends. She is a terrific mother, teacher and friend! And I just adore her husband and her son! Aren't they just the cutest darn family! I was so happy we finally got to meet up and they were game for anything. In fact D didn't even question it when I asked him to pull my big green chair out of my car and sit it in the middle of the dirt road. I KNOW he thought I was crazy...but he didn't make a peep! And it sure it nice to have two big strongs guys on a shoot! I'm used to dragging that chair out all by myself and lugging it down a hill with strange glances from all directions!

And they were all so great to work with. Even Mr. L who I definitely know thought I was some crazy woman, just went with the flow. He really is a great kid and very handsome to boot!

I had a great time and it just reminds me why I love what I do and how I couldn't be happier doing anything else.

S and D I so hope you enjoy this sneak peek!

A Sneak Peek...the Right Way may have seen my quick post yesterday on my senior session with R. The first words out of her mouth when we met that afternoon were, "I'm really not photogenic!" Do any of you believe her?

I can hardly say these are my favorites from the day as there are SO many to choose from. But these are definitely some great shots! Luckily we had a gorgeous day (after a cancellation due to snow!). Not too hot and not too cold and the sun worked with us perfectly. We timed our arrival by the lake to perfection and got some unbelievably beautiful shots with the setting sun!

I hope you enjoy your sneak peek! I had a lot of fun photographing you and thank you very much G. for helping my lug my green chair up and down the hill to the lake!

Leave a Comment....You Won't Be Sorry!

Do you like my work?....Just want to say "Hi"?....See your neice or nephew...grandson...or best friend's photos and think they look great?

Then I'd like to hear from you! I hope people out there are looking at the studios most recent work...but I can't tell if you don't let me know! I'd also like to hear how you think my visions are being received!

I hope next time you are'll leave a comment about what you thought!

Thanks for looking at the work of Chasing Fireflies Studio and we hope to hear from you!

Senior Sneak Peek's my birthday...and I can't believe I'm already that dreaded 30-something! But, I couldn't be having more fun in finally being able to follow my dreams with this photography business.

That being said I REALLY should be getting ready. My husband and good friends are taking me out to kids...what will we talk about?? BUT I couldn't keep myself from downloading all of the photos I took today with this gorgeous senior!

As I was going through these photos I thought...I'll just edit one so R and her mother can get a sneak sneak peek and I just kept editing and editing! There are too many great shots to chose from and I haven't even looked at those last photos we took yet.

This is one of my favorites so far. I just love R's smile in this and the great color we got by the river!

I promise to get more time to go through them tomorrow...but for now this will have to do!

Sneak Peek

First I have to thank the ladies of Bella Bella for entering into this adventure with me! You'll be able to see examples of my work at Bella Bella Boutique in Raton, NM on 1st Street across from the historic train station! Please come see my work and all of the AWESOME clothing and accessories they have at their gorgeous boutique!

I had so much fun with these kids! They were COMPLETELY into having their photographs taken and were so good! For being 5 of them....the chaos was very understated! The two girls were budding models and the little twin blondes were just as I imagine twins...when one was on the other was off! But the dark haired little boy stole my photographer's heart with his tough guy attitude!

They all had these wonderfully expressive eyes...and share the same smile!

M&M I hope you enjoy your sneak peek! I have so many wonderful photographs to choose from!
