I had to giggle. Last night Hailey told me she wasn't going to celebrate 'Singles Awareness Day.' LMAO!!! She makes me so happy!
Let's all work together to find her a nice guy, contact me if you know of a GREAT fella, k?
So, I have decided, instead, to celebrate Valentine's Day by sharing my beautiful children with you all! I am lucky, the kids will still let me design their Valentine's Day cards. I realize that one of these days I won't have that luxury, but for now, I will torment them for each and every holiday. That's just part of the fun, LOL!
Hope you all have a wonderful day- feel the love folks, feel.the.love!
Last Sunday I had the GREAT pleasure of meeting this wonderful little family. Mom, Dad & Nathan are going to welcome little Griffin into the family in the next month or so. What an exciting time!
This family is so sweet and loving. Dad is the kind of fella every girl dreams about- sweet with his wife, affectionate with his son- an all around family guy. When he looks at Sara you can see how much he adores her. When they look at each other, you can almost see little love bubbles popping between them!
And, Nathan! What a sweet little fella! He is such an inquisitive little fella- and SMART to boot! He learned my name (not quite two, mind you) and he walked around the studio saying "Amy's light" "Amy's toys" "Amy's..." Too darn cute!
So, without further adieu, I present to you "Amy's kinda family..."

Today I had the great honor of being the official photographer for the local auditions for America's Next Top Model.
As some of you know, I happen to have an amazingly beautiful assistant. Tall, thin AND nice. It is hard not to hate her.
Out of 37 girls today, my beautiful, wonderful, smart, funny assistant WON! She is Great Falls' Next Top Model! For winning today's competion she will move on to the next level. I am not quite sure what that means exactly, but I am sure over the next few days we will get a better feel for what's really going on. At one point I heard she was in the top four, but wow, to win! Damn, I am so flippin' proud and excited!
These are the images we made of her for her application. I like to think the only reason she won was the amazing photography...I'm sure it had nothing to do with the legs that go up to her neck. :P
This week, on top of all the other cool stuff going on, I had the opportunity to photograph a beautiful young model named Addison. This woman is so strikingly beautiful- and one of the most laid-back chiquitas I have ever met. Nothing phases this girl! She is easy to work with, too.
Thanks so much for choosing my studio, Addy...I just KNOW you are headed for GREAT things!
Yep. I just had the Best.Week.Ever. No, seriously!
Brace yourselves, guys- this is mind blowing it's so cool!
#1. I found out that KRTV 3, in Great Falls was looking for an official photographer for the America's Next Top Model auditions. I called up, and after some serious visiting on the phone I BECAME THE OFFICIAL PHOTOGRAPHER for AMERICA'S NEXT TOP MODEL auditions in Great Falls.
#2. We finally bought our land in Great Falls! It is ours, free and clear. Hopefully within the next 4 years we will have our little house built. I just want a cozy little place that is all my own.
#3. Today (Friday), I got a really cool call from The Historical Society in Great Falls. I have been asked to be the featured artist for the First Friday Exhibit at the Historical Society. Our Grand Opening will be on February 6th. The current display at the Museum is Nose Art from WWII. The director of the Museum had seen my pin-up work at the What Women Want Expo and she asked ME to hang my work. Wow, what an amazing honor!
I have really been walking around pinching myself all day! I really AM the luckiest girl around.
So, mark your calendars for our opening reception at The Cascade County Historical Society, Friday, February 6th, 2009.
Bridal Fair Season is upon us! On Sunday the 11th we had a booth at the Bridal Extravaganza in Great Falls! We had a GREAT time! We met so many beautiful brides and their families...there were even a few grooms who tagged along (now THAT makes a brave and loving fella!)
Not only did we meet brides, but we booked Valentine's Day sessions, family sessions and even made some contacts for Seniors! What a weekend!
We set up a booth to photograph folks, but if you are not expecting to make a portrait, well, you just aren't gonna have a portrait made....even if it is free, LOL! However, we were lucky enough to meet TWO CUTE little fellas who were in the style show. What a pair they are! The little buckaroo is quite the character- darling fella. His older brother brother was cool as a cucumber, almost like he was a LOT older than he really is.
Three brides took advantage of our huge special- they got our $10,000 package for more than half off! Congrats, ladies, you got the screaming deal of the century!
