its been awhile..

i really need to make it a weekly thing to log on here an update this blog..i have been severely slacking as my last post is dangerously close to a year ago haha! BUT things have been very busy which is good. i am starting to feel a little overwhelmed these days..i need to be more organized which is my current goal. i have a few days off before my first wedding of the year so hopefully i get something accomplished and i dont just sit around being lazy :p altho the second option seems like the thing to do :p heres some updated photos, nothing really different from my facebook page…thats my next goal to have some different photos on here then the ones that are already posted to facebook. i need a secretary :p

here comes peter cottontail...

when trying to decide what to do for easter mini-sessions this year, a wonderful lady offered to let me use her bunny for the weekend. which of course, ive seen a million different pics of kids with bunnies and its always a hit, so i took her up on it. she told me fluffy was a very easy-going bunny and she was def. not lieing..haha! that bunny had an eventful couple of days with kids aging in range from 5 months to 12 years old. I SWEAR though that she knew what was going on cause pretty much no matter where we put her, or what was going on, she just stayed right in her spot..hardly ever moving. Altho by the end of the weekend, fluffy wanted nothing to do with me..haha! Everything went pretty well though and i would call bunny weekend a pretty good success :)

heres just a few of my favorites :)
