Another AMAZING year in the life of our Hudson! I can't believe how much joy this little EIGHT year old has brought into our family life! I'm so thankful to celebrate him on my blog, he deserves it, even if this post is nearly three months late! Happy 8th Birthday my Hudson!

Hudson circa April 2012 and now April 2013. He's grown up so much this year!

Justin and I had a super short, but super fun LYON-SHOP trip in Phoenix Arizona! Loved the group of photographers that joined us that day at the Hotel Valley Ho, it was so much fun to photograph our models with such great style!

The first live shoot consisted of working with natural and available light when the lighting outdoors isn't quite ideal, posing/working with your couple, and having fun with lenses and shadows.
