The Endearing Miss Emmie Lou!

We recently got to meet a little dachshund named
Emmie Lou.
She was a tail-wagging bundle of fun
from the minute she walked in the Studio.

Emmie Lou and her new little squeaky toy.
We gave it to her as part of her
"Welcome To Our Studio" packet,
and were hardly able to get her to
part with it for the rest of her session.

One of the few images we were able to get
of Emmie Lou without her new "buddy".
Doesn't she just have the most
beautiful eyes!

Ashton and Sandra - proud "puppy parents".
Such a cute family.

Emmie Lou thinking about burying her toy
in the basket ...

We almost packed her up and took
her home with us!

Miss Emmie's first place costume!

Emmie Lou, her blankie and ... her new squeaky toy.

Happy First Birthday, Miss E!

Just twelve short months ago
I made my big debut
So now I'd like to celebrate
My 1st Birthday with you.

We had so much fun helping Miss E celebrate her first birthday!
I'm not sure which she enjoyed more -
the rocking horse or her cake.
Okay, yeah, I think it was the cake. :)

Miss E and her princess horsie.
I wonder where we'll go today ...

You don't see me gettin' your bears ...
Little Miss E rocked the camo bodysuit!

I found these beautiful words of love
written on Miss E's mommy's FB page.
She is one loved little girl.

Miss E humored me and let me
get a few images of her in a little
fluffy pink tutu.
"Tutu" cute!

Birthday Balloons and Cupcake Wishes.
Time goes by sooooo fast!

Let the sugar rush begin!
She was a little timid at first,
but after that first taste of sticky,
sweet icing, she went back for more.

Hmmm ... just a little bit more ...
maybe no one will see me ...
I don't know who had more fun -
Miss E and her cake...
or us capturing these moments
with her.

Families Are Beautiful Things!


"Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family."  ~Anthony Brandt

We had the privilege recently to capture some beautiful images of a wonderful family.
The weather was beautiful and the smiles were even better!

Love this stone wall! So many treasures in Downtown Albemarle.

More smiles at the Depot.

"Girls go to college to get more knowledge...
boys go to Jupiter and get more stupider!"
These ladies were hilarious!!!

"Boys rule and
girls drool!"
Are these boys or monkeys?
What they are is awesome!!
