Mom had some great ideas!  She wanted to incoporate some bright, colorful fresh flowers.  So, so pretty!  Hmm, maybe I should try something like this with my own kiddos…

  special family of four June 8, 2010   

This was a special shoot.  I’ve been excited to work with this family since learning about them!  They’ve recently adopted their sweet little son and now have two super cute two year olds to love, enjoy, kiss goodnight…and chase around!! 

However, on the day of this shoot there were so many factors that made it an less than ideal shoot…including my camera dying!!  Ugh!  So, we are going to do another little mini shoot to capture some of the shots I was not able to get.  But, we did get some great shots.  Here are a few:

It was a very stormy and rainy afternoon, once the rain stopped we say two beautiful rainbows in the sky.  I don’t typically like to shoot in the full sun, but, we had to try! 

http://www.andreashirey.com/blog/wp-content/images/thop_4.jpg

We splashed in the rain puddles!

  maternity beauty June 7, 2010   

For this maternity shoot we worked at Barboursville Vineyards…sooooo pretty out there!  You really must visit!  Lots of lush green, rolling hills, beautiful vineyards–a wonderful place for a shoot and a glass of wine or picnic!!

This couple was a joy to work with!  So willing to do anything I asked!  We got some beautiful captures…take a look:

 This family toughed it out on a very, very hot muggy day–and I think braving the heat and humidity was worth it!  We got some great shots!
