I feel like a kid in a candy store.

All the possibilities, the light, two people willing to stand/sit/look any direction I tell them.

Currently of course I notice that they’re just kind of standing there with that, “what is she doing?” look.

Right….. it always starts off a little stiff and slow.  I take a bit to warm up.

Before long I’m shouting at Jamie for the fourth time, “No REALLY come into her!”

To which quiet reserved Jamie finally responds, “uh, I kind of already did?”


Of course making a total fool of myself is really just part of my gig.

Can’t wait to see these two as parents in October!
