flowers in my hair

Diptych-1 Peach Rose-1i am a blessed kid this week! after celebrating the end of classes annd two years together (whoa), dru gave me flowers on friday and I haven’t stopped staring at them since. seriously though, they’ve opened so pretty! i couldn’t help but grab my camera and take a few shots of them today.

and in thinking about it, i actually don’t remember the last time i took my camera out for myself! so nice.

much love!

newfoundland… represent!

Vaughn-1

so vaughn’s lying on a newfoundland flag, the brown thing underneath the flag is a beaver pelt, and his salt and pepper hat is lying close by. so no, this really could not have gotten any more newfoundland.

therefore, i had a solid laugh yesterday when i stumbled across this photo. i feel like he’s punching it and saying “newfoundland… represent.” even his little face looks so serious!

babies. hilarity!

much love,

Suz-1 Suz-2who wouldn’t want to start off a sunday morning with this little face?

seriously. suz (the beautiful momma pictured above!) is a good friend of mine & dru’s, and when she asked us to get together for a shoot with her little one i was in.

if i’m being honest, baby sessions are my favorite. who isn’t going to love a photo of a baby? and even in the madness i find those sessions really calming. is that weird? maybe its the oldest sister in me, or the old swim coach. i mean, hello… kiddy classes were the bomb. who else is going to say to me in awe, “wow, teacher! you swim like a dolphin… who swims like… like a mermaid!” now, while in reality that would probably look pretty messed up i still take it as a large compliment coming from a very shy three year old, and i laughed after that lesson for days. (thanks again grant!) seriously though, i say pass those sessions on.

on that note, the list of things to do/shoot when classes finally clues up is becoming endless. i love it.

much love,

candace

andrew, raven, whitney, & virginia

Andrew-6 Raven-1 Whitney-1Virginia-1this is the second last part of the grad catalogue series! funny how what has kept me busy for the entire month of february has made all the difference for my whole term, and for what I picked out for my graduation show too. speaking off… the grad show pieces got delivered yesterday! SUCH a relief.

back to… applications, work, and essays up to my eyeballs. 12 days to go!

much love,

candace

birthday bree

B-3 B-4 B-5 B-6 B-8i put up a quick preview of bree up just a few weeks ago, but seeing as per how TODAY is her actual birthday… and how her mom is a dream client (who shares my love of black and whites, can you tell?) i figured it’s worth putting up another load of favorites. she’s too cute not to share!

much love, and the happiest of birthdays to this very happy little girl!
