...Let me introduce to you ~Alana~ owner and creative talent behind Mixed Greens Event Design...

...Her floral designs are AMAZING and her resume will blow you away...

...AND she is now here in Durango! So, you better get her while you can before her calendar is booked solid for years to come...and I am not kidding...

...I already booked her for the party at From the Heart next Friday...I can't even tell you how amazing her designs are...

...This photo shoot just happened by chance...We met through a mutual good friend as well as my sister and hit it off: love of art, design, our children, husbands & more...I mean, what more could you ask for?...

...She called me and said she was going to the amazing Blue Lake Ranch to pick flowers for a wedding she is designing the floral displays for and wanted to see if I wanted to come along...And of course I said yes and decided to turn it into a photo shoot that showcases her in the process of what she does...We had a blast...We were both doing what we love, so it made for a great day...

...and the Blue Lake Ranch's gardens are AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING...rows upon rows of peonies and irises!...I can't wait to do more photo sessions there...It was perfect...

...Thank you to Alana for a fun afternoon...We definitely have lots of fun filled days as friends & artists together and I know her business is going to skyrocket....

...Here is all of her contact information and she will be a permanent link on my website and blog, so keep her and I bookmarked!...

Wow! we loved the pictures of Alana and our peonies. Thanks for sharing them with us!Should we put some of these pictures on the website to promote the peonies for events and Alana's floral magic?
Just a thought and thanks again!

Sarah and I decided to take a few extra photos in addition to the first photo session (see a couple blog posts back) as a secret for her sweet hubby for Father's Day...I LOVED ice cream when I was pregnant and so does she, so we had to go get ice cream...oh darn...:)

...This has to be the cutest princess I have ever met...

...She has the princess thing down too...and she is only 3...but she is a very sweet princess and her parents adore her...

...We had many outfit changes (because princesses LOVE dressing up)...and that made my job a lot easier as there was no resistance to the changing of clothes...

...She had me laughing a lot too...and she is SO very smart...I was very impressed...After she counted to me in spanish and english as well as answered some mathematical questions, she proceeded to tell me; "cuz that's how I roll..."

...OMG...I thought I was going to die of laughter...It was hilarious...

...Oh, kids are so funny...I loved spending the morning with her and her lovely parents...I am so glad they chose me to take their photos...

...And every princess has to have a sweet puppy...so cute!...

...There are SO many more photos, but her mom and dad will have to wait for the full gallery:)...

...These brothers were such naturals in front of the camera...

...And yes, I know, another fantastic looking family...

...and no, they are not models...not yet at least...if you are an agent, you better hurry...

...And it was their mom's birthday the day of the photo shoot and what a perfect way to spend it: with her boys and dad & capturing those moments forever in photos...

...And they were game for whatever, so we just walked around and got to know one another...

...I love that...I love getting to know my clients...

...The trees, I think the cottonwoods, were shedding near the river and it almost looked like it was snowing...(see the last photo)...it was really amazing...until it got in your eyes, nose and mouth...but  it was still really amazing...

...and of course, I had the hardest time narrowing down the images for the post...as there are so many more that will be in their private gallery...so, I saved some of my favorites as surprises for their gallery...

...but enjoy these as you can see a little of what we did that morning...

...This is one gorgeous preggers lady...

...She has the cutest baby bump ever...

...I have known her for quite a long time now and I am so happy for all the wonderful things that have come into her life that have made her so incredibly happy...

...And I was so excited that she wanted me to take her maternity and newborn photos...very excited and honored...yay!...

...And her precious little one is due in less than 2 (yes two!) weeks now and not only does she look AMAZING, she is still practically running marathons...not really, but I sure don't remember not huffing and puffing at the end of the pregnancy or getting up easily from lying down, etc...

...She is like a preggers rockstar...and she is still so graceful while pregnant too...I was like a walking whale...Given she is about 10 feet taller than I am and I did gain about 40lbs more than she did during pregnancy, but still...:)...I am so amazed...

...I CANNOT WAIT to meet her new baby, meet her husband and to photograph the three of them together as a new family...that will be very special...

...You will see her new baby soon too here on my blog...so keep checking back as it could be any day now:)...
