Georgia Spring Beauty

I made it back home yesterday evening. It was a great week of visiting family and friends. I had several shoots while there, thank you to Mercer and Ginger and Avery! Here are some shots of springtime in Georgia.

Happy Butterfly

Last year, I found some old seed packets of my mothers that dated back to the seventies. Miraculously I lucked out with one sunflower.

Miracle Sunflower I

Me and a tiny honey bee just loved this flower. He’s burrowed in the seeds of the flower.

Miracle Sunflower II

This little guy would visit me often. He deserved a good portrait.

Smiling Dragonfly

It rained a good bit here in Wheatland last week. When I drove into the ranch, the meadows were green and the trees were blooming. I’ll have local updates soon.  xo

My how the years go by. This young lady has been a beautiful subject of my lens for 4 years now. We did her portraits in a friends yard and by the neighborhood lake earlier this week. We had great weather and little Avery was a trooper. Tears streamed once and only for a short amount of time. Otherwise we played and smiled.

She wanted to pet the ducks but they weren’t having any of that. We looked for fish in the lake instead.

This was her birth announcement portrait. I still cannot believe it’s been 4 years.

See you next year Avery!

Waiting for Spring

Waiting for Spring:

I stayed in the house today and worked on print orders for clients back on Georgia. The wind was howling but other than that it was  warm and sunny . Got me anxious of what to expect for springtime in Wyoming. Georgia starts spring in mid-march usually. I shot this flower the morning of moving day in my backyard.  My front and back yards would sprout a meadow of these little floral weeds and I just loved them. I used my macro lens to capture the dew.

I’m excited to get our flower and veggie garden started out here. Hopefully we’re done with the snow.
