I’m still working to catch up on my blogging. Back in May I did some dance photos for a few sweet girls including my Aubrey since they were not offered through the studio. I had talked to Melanie about possibly being the photographer for the studio next year, that would be a ton of fun!
I had SUCH a great vacation. My mom took me to Nashville for CMA Fest, we were supposed to go last year but I was in no condition for a road trip and 4 days of concerts. I drove so there aren’t any cool driving pictures just some fun ones from our night on Beale St. in downtown Memphis.
First we headed out to Corky’s BBQ because I got so many recommendations, the ribs were super delish!
We walked around a bit and they had these little street front bars that I thought were just plain genius! So we got ourselves a Hurricane…it was NOT like any Hurricane I’d ever had before but I choked it down anyway since you could walk on the street and go into other bars with your drinks. They also had some fun beers on tap but I’m not a beer kinda girl. This sign at one of the bars had me CRACKING up! I thought it was so clever!
We popped into a few more bars and listened to some bands and then had to head into some of the souvenir shops before completing our night. We had to be on the road bright and early to head into Nashville the next morning. Need a toilet seat with some dancing cats on it? I know where to find them;)
I hope you enjoyed a little glimpse of Memphis, I’m hoping to get Nashville up in a few posts by the end of the summer so keep checking back;)
Back in early May I met up with the J Family and as soon as they stepped out of their vehicle I knew they understood how to dress for a photo session. I adore that they all coordinate well but are not matchy matchy. Everyone looks great and is still able to feel comfortable in what they are wearing. They are a stunning family and I enjoyed my time with them!
Tae and I have new do’s! She is seriously super happy…you’d think I let her have a hamster. lol We got our hair done yesterday…for 4.5 hours. Tae’s hair would not bleach, they used the strongest bleach twice and it still would not let go of all her deep brown. I still think it looks cute but we know for sure that the purple will work in her hair next time so we’ll just stick with that. My friend and GREAT MUA Carolina did our makeup. We loved it and her! If you need a makeup artist for any event let me know and I’ll get the 2 of you in touch.
Today I sent my babies off for the last day of 4th grade and Kindergarten. It is so bittersweet! Yesterday they had their awards ceremonies and i was just BEAMING with pride! I have such amazingly kind and smart and awesome kids! Tae and Bash will be saying goodbye to Hutto Elementary it’s been a great school and Tae has gone since Kindergarten. Next year they both will be starting at a new school, Gateway Charter in Georgetown and I couldn’t be more excited for them to have this opportunity.
Also while we are on the subject of summer…if you live in Central Texas you know it is already crazy hot…or at least crazy hot for this NY girl! For that reason I will not be accepting any outdoor sessions in July or August. I am though still accepting a limited number studio custom session and newborn sessions of course:)
