It must be summer...

I know it must be summer when the beach portrait season begins...Here are a few from the other night...what cute kids and their dogs were a lot of fun as well. I had never seen a miniature bulldog before...I guess they are one of the new genetically engineered designer dogs that have become so popular lately. His name is Travis and he snorted like a little pig when he got tired...too darn cute.

I have been in the middle of home improvement hell for the last week...I decided it was time to put laminate down in my studio since the carpet smelled like dog and it was seriously grossing me out...What an undertaking. I have collected so much junk over the years and I had to carry it all out to the garage downstairs so we could lay the floor. I was so overwhelmed I did not know where to start. So after a lot of work, the floor is down, the studio is finally back together and I now have a nice clean, smell free studio....YAY! I will post a few photos when it is presentable...

We are having a heat wave here this week with temps around 99 for the next five days with high humidty...sounds lovely doesn't it? On the brightside, I have one of my best friends in town for the next few days visiting and I am sooo looking forward to seeing her and her family. She is a west coaster now, so we don't get to see each other that often anymore and I am looking forward to catching up in person...I hope everyone has a great day!

Those pictures are gorgeous! I know Tucker, Travis and the two kids, and you really captured their personalities. I can't wait to have you take pictures of my two dogs!

Yes, I have a "mini" beagle. Mini translated means "$1000 extra dollars" for a non-AKC pup that is wicked cute!
