Spring has finally sprung

Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace, and gratitude.

It finally hit me… my baby girl is just about finished with her freshman year of college. I dare say we have both grown over these past months. She in navigating her way around campus, dorms and classes; myself in redefining my life and my role in hers. 

As the days drew nearer for Tatiana to come home for spring break, I could hardly wait. The week was all about her. We shopped, dined, had a spa day, several movie nights, cuddled with puppies, and enjoyed each other’s company. 

The highlight of the week was showing Tatiana our new studio and actually spending several hours with her in front of our cameras. Tammy and I spent the Studio Session photographing Helen and Tatiana. It was awesome to get the creative juices flowing, knowing we weren't constrained by time. We had a blast showing the young ladies just how beautiful they are. 

I think it’s really important to shoot even when you don’t have any booked sessions. For Tammy and I, it helps us to discover and develop the shots we have envisioned. Plus, because the studio is new, we are breaking it in and figuring out how to best navigate it.
