Countdown to Christmas 2011

With Thanksgiving behind us, the days are flying by and soon Christmas will be upon us. Time to start preparing for this most special time of year. Gideon thinks it's a very good thing!

Pet and Owner Photo Shoot

When Lisa told me her dog was a Golden Retriever I knew it was going to be a fun shoot, but I didn't know the half of it. Sam arrived looking all spiffy and clean for his photographs, but we were persuaded (against our better judgement) to let him off his leash. Big mistake. Anyway, photographs are all about capturing what is, and so that was what we got.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I would have posted this last night, but I was just too full and had to go to bed and sleep it off. Why is it that Thanksgiving has become an excuse for over-the-top gluttony! And why do I approach it with the best of restrained intentions, only to forget those intentions after one glass of red wine. There's a lesson in there somewhere, and it's not buried too deep. Oh well. I'll do better next year. Thanks Pam & Bubba for another awesome dinner.

My New Favorite Place

I love when I discover a really neat new place to photograph ... I had heard that the new Shem Creek Park was really nice, but I was blown away when I went to check it out today. This is really an awesome asset to Mount Pleasant.
Way to go Town of Mount Pleasant. Families were out enjoying the day with their dogs, babies in strollers, etc. A really class act and a great blend of commerce, recreation, and nature. I will be a regular visitor.

Foggy Morning at McLeod Plantation

I have been working on photographing McLeod Plantation for the CCPRC and have been waiting for some early morning fog for a different mood. This morning delivered.

I spent a couple of hours yesterday afternoon shooting Ella and Lizzy in the studio. Child photography can be unpredictable, but at the end of the day, we got some really nice shots. Here are a couple of them.
Mommy joined in for a couple at the end.

Gideon visits the Aquarium

So what do you do with kids on a miserable day? Now that I am a grandmother with regular babysitting duties, I am open to all ideas, but this was one obvious solution. Wide-eyed wonder on steroids - a very successful outing.

Suddenly it's Winter

At least in the Smokies. Charleston may wait a few weeks. This was the scene that I saw this morning when I arrived at the cove just before dawn - a winter wonderland. Also saw a big male Black Bear pretty close up, and more deer. Great day, but it's time to go home.
