he’s a snuggler and he’s absolutely everything we hoped he would be! I thought about blogging about him on the 5 hour drive home yesterday to show this little ball of cuteness to the WORLD! …. But I was a little preoccupied. When we saw him for the first time, he didn’t even seem real. He really looks like a stuffed animal… only more adorable and wiggly. BOKEH (pronounced “bo-ca”) is an eight week old Bich-Poo. He’s absolutely beautiful. Michael and I wanted a little apricot colored fluffball that wouldn’t make Michael SNEEZE… and this was the perfect option!! Bich-Poos are a
mix between a Bichon Frise and a Poodle so they hardly shed at all! I held him the whole way home and never found any hair on my clothes! YESSS. AND Michael hasn’t sneezed yet! This is a good sign!! We’re learning more and more about this little guy. So far we know that he’s capable of sleeping through the night in his crate, he’s paper trained and that helps a ton with the whole house training process, he hates being alone, he’s a snuggler and he’s PHOTOGENIC!!! Hallelujah!!! You all will be so sick of seeing pics of this little guy by the end of the year! Our iphones are already filled with tons of “First Time _______” videos. First time going on a walk, first time meeting his grandparents, first pit stop on our ride home, etc. Needless to say, Bokeh’s whole life will be well documented!:)
So I must explain his name. For those of you in the photography world, you’re probably rolling your eyes and thinking “Did she REALLY name her dog that?!” and for those of you that are not photographers, you’re probably thinking that we named our dog “Mouth” in spanish! Well, if you’ve ever seen some of my images, the blurry, creamy goodness in the background of my images is called “Bokeh”! We named our puppy after my favorite photography term. NERD ALERT!!! It’s a funny name but we’re really loving it. We had another girl name selected but Bokeh was the only Bich-Poo around who was the beautiful apricot shade and he just happened to be a male!! We love his color! It ALMOST matches my hair!!! Meant to be? Yes. So this week will be full of bathroom breaks, trips to Petsmart and learning what it’s like to have a whole new level of responsibility in our life. So far, he’s been great. He takes long naps, he’s getting to know his crate and he’s eating like a champ. We’re THRILLED!!!!!!! Here are some little shots of little baby Bokeh from yesterday!! ** and ps. to make this post even cuter… he’s been sleeping in my lap the whole time I’ve been writing this post…good boy:) **
And if you want to see more pics…. I pretty sure I’ll be blowing up my Twitter feed these next few weeks until the newness wears off:)
Here’s a shot from our way home! Such a fluffball.
It still feels surreal to tell people about what we do for a living. We photograph weddings and we teach other people how to photograph weddings. It’s quite literally a dream job for a creative like myself who loves people! Every month when we do these Student Spotlights, I’m reminded all over again how much of a privilege it is to be a part of these photographer’s lives and play a small role in their stories.
This is Rhett’s third month blog post and I’m actually impressed that it’s only 9 days late!! I’m sure I’ll fall behind this year but as of right now, I’m doing ok and I’m actually thankful for the monthly-post commitment to keep me on top of editing our family pics each month!! While people say “the days are long but the years are short”…. I would say EVERYTHING feels short right now!
If you’re a photographer that despises Off-Camera-Flash (OCF), this blog post is for you! Ugh. I feel you. I used to hate it too… and it honestly still isn’t my favorite but it’s necessary in order to rise in your professionalism on wedding days after dark!! Off camera flash seems intimidating when you’re trying it for the first time.
This is such a fun post for me to share because it’s what I consider my “hobby”! Sure, it’s still photo-related so maybe it’s not a true hobby for me since my career is consumed in the photography world… but it is most definitely what I love to do for fun!
This is the biggest complaint we’re hearing about the R6!! Photographers who are moving from the CANON MARK III camera body and switching to the new Canon R6 camera body are lost when it comes to perfecting their edits to the style they are used to.
There has never been a year quite like 2020. It started off so normal, so simple and so carefree. Then, March/April hit and it felt like everything was turned upside down!
