  • The 2012 Love Shots Contest

Every year I host a contest… and I say “every year” like I’ve been doing this forever… really, this is only the 3rd annual “Love Shots” contest! I’m not really sure where it got its’ name… I just came up with it! But it originated as a “Valentine’s Day” contest. Welp! I was crazy busy around that time this year and so I forgot to post it! But have no fear! It’s back again and I can’t WAIT to see who wins! EVERY WEDDING I shot from LAST February through THIS PAST February is entered in the contest.  ONE COUPLE will win a 20×30 CANVAS at the end! All they need to do to win is have the MOST VOTES by MONDAY April 2nd at 12pm.

with a puppy

  • The First Month

getting a puppy would mean big changes for us.  We were used to leaving the house whenever we wanted for as long as we wanted. No responsibility whatsoever. It was nice. When we first got married we talked about getting a puppy but luckily, we decided to wait. I’m so thankful. That year and a 1/2 without a puppy was good for us and I’m glad we didn’t immediately jump into being puppy parents right after the wedding. However, December 2011 was quickly approaching and I was secretly hoping Michael agreed that it was time to get a puppy! …. He did. I found out on Christmas morning that we were going to get a little Bich-Poo!!! AHH!!!
