Ok , now onto the fun stuff. I met Ruthanne in MOPS last year and she is AWESOME ! You may remember her from earlier in my blog. She was kind enough to be my very first shoot about 8 months ago. It was so fun to photograph them again. And can I say that I loved what they were wearing!? The colors were so great !

Myka is one !

Almost ............. this time last year I was trying to sleep. But sleep was impossible. I knew the phone was going to ring at any minute and I was going to go to the hospital. Finally at 12:00 am on August 15th they called us in. And at 11:10 am Myka Jean Mitchell was born.

This little girl has is amazing. She is such a good baby. She is happy. She is perfect.

She loves her big sister's and has her Daddy wrapped around her little finger.

I am so excited to see how much she will grow in this next year.And a little sad that my baby is a toddler.

We love you Myka !!!

A girl's best friend .

One of the kajillion reasons I love what I do so much is the AMAZING people I get to meet. Like my friend Stacy. You met Stacy and her family here . Stacy is a foster parent for The Arizona pug association. She opens up her home and her heart to Pugs who are waiting for a forever family.

It was through Stacy that I had the pleasure of meeting Laura this past weekend. Laura is a foster parent as well. From the moment I met her I could sense the love that she had for her best friends.

I wish that I could have taken pictures of all the sweet Pugs at Laura's house. But Sunday was Lil' Debbies day to shine !! She was such a great model. I have never done a animal shoot before Lil' Debbie. But I hope I will get to do more in the future.

Thanks Laura for allowing me into your home and to meet your Lil ' princess :)

Enjoy !!
