Andrea…The Thrilling Conclusion!

Our beautiful Monday continued with a visit from our old friend – Andrea! The occasion was the conclusion of her already super-fantastic-photo-shoot (which can be found here.)

As usual, she brought her fun times and rockem-sockem self out of the studio, and unleashed it upon the outdoors! She was awesome, she was fantastic, she was any other number of similar words to describe great – to work with. We thank her for waiting for this perfect day, thank her for not being afraid of the train (like Matt was) and wish to offer just a smidgen (not quite sure if that is a word) of our work together – Enjoy!

And as if Jon wasn’t enough, we took the good times and multiplied it by two! I know you must think we are mad, but it is not us that are mad, it’s just the straight up truth when I say that working with Mike on this glorious morning was a total and complete treat!

He came in ready to rock and/or roll – and rock and/or roll he did! We thank him for being so into it so early in the AM, and we also thank his lovely assistant (Mom) for her hard work as well! So enough with all of my blabbering, and let’s get to the snaps – Enjoy!

Bright and early Monday morning we were joined by Jon for a totally awesome (I sound like a Valley Girl there) photo shoot extra-ordinaire!
He not only put up with the freezing cold, but did it with style and class. He tore it up with reckless abandon, and the shots looked sweet

It’s not easy being so great to work with in the morning (I’m usually not aware of my surroundings until about noon.) So here’s to you Jon – and all you other bloggers out there- Enjoy!

Missy…The Conclusion

Missy…what can we say other than thank you for being so great to work with! You totally owned your shoot. I’m not sure what that means, but it’s true. Thank you to Mom for the coffee, and thank you to Mother Nature for an absolutely beautiful evening, thank you to the geese for their insane loudness, and thank you to the woodpecker for making Missy laugh! Most important, thanks to Missy for her hard work (standing on tables and what not.)

Take a look at her last post here, and take a look at these – Enjoy!

And Again…Gabe!

This morning we arose to spend a little more time with our friend Gabe (you may remember him from this post)! We began with some hearty cold weather, but the sun was out so at least we had that. Well…the sun was out for about the first 15 minutes of the shoot, and after that it began to snow.

Ahh yes, our old friend snow. We didn’t let it get us down. We soldiered on, determined to take this snow and make it into photographic gold (again, a really cheesy sentence.) Gabe was awesome – perhaps compeletely frozen at times, but he knew it was for the greater cause – the cause of Senior Portraits. It was with this in the back of his head that allowed him to tear it up in the fashion in which he did.

Even though I do not really know what that last sentence means, I want to invite you to stop back later this winter for a couple of more from Gabe. For now, we offer these to tide you over – Enjoy!

This afternoon, we were joined at Otis & James Central by a very special guest star, Amanda! The misson: her Senior Portraits. We were up for the job, and so was Amanda!

We got right down to business and let the good times roll. Amanda was a natural at this – she totally rocked it up, and we just went along for the ride. I don’t know what that means, but what I do know is that Amanda was sweet to work with (not in the sugary sense, but in the style of “Dude…sweet.”) We thank her for making the trip down just for us (us and maybe a little shopping too, that is), and hope to see her again soon! Well, enough of all this and let’s get to the pics – Enjoy!

This morning, the land of Otis & James welcomed a new friend to our midst, the lovely Katie! It was brrrrrrrrrrrrrrr very cold outsite when we started, but we didn’t let that get us down. No! We instead made those shivers into smiles (that line may have crossed the threshold of cheesy to totally cheesy), but we did!

She was absolutely wonderfuld to work with, and our time together was all too fleeting (sorry if we made you late!) Thank you again to Katie, and I will now stop all of my jibberish and jabbering and get on with the snaps – Enjoy!
