I grew up with snowy winters. I always loved them in December. But, by January I was ready for Spring! I thoroughly enjoyed my first winter here in NM. I hardly wore a coat, I wore flip flops most of the time, I got several weird looks, and even got asked a few times, "aren't you cold?" To me and my cold winter jeans: IT WAS GREAT! Fast forward 3.5 years...I told one of my photog friends the other day that I had snow envy...she had some beautiful shots of her little girl in several snowy scenes. And, while winters here are very mild, they are lacking in color and beauty. Sure, we get a a few snow storms, but they are usually cleared out and melted by noon! So, last week I decided that I just HAD to take advantage of the lingering snow...and since my kids were out of school for 4 days for "snow days" we headed out...in the 17 degree weather....

I love to have return clients! You might remember this cute little gal from here. So, I was super excited when Mom contacted me about doing a shoot for her and her daughters upcoming graduation! Mom is graduating from UNM and daughter is graduating from preschool! How fun is that!?! I had so much fun doing this goofy little shoot at the library with them! I am looking forward to designing up some "save the date" cards for them! Congrats to both of you!

It snowed last night. Well, more like it "skiffed" last night! But, the roads were SUPER icy and so they canceled school. Picture #1 is my 1st graders face when I told her school was canceled. Not quite what I was expecting...maybe it was because I told her earlier today that if you get the day off you have to make it up later! But, I think that she eventually got over it! Happy Snow Day everyone!
