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.
Starting a school for our kids and community was going to be a big undertaking, we knew that! But we have learned so much alongside our kids that has made this endeavor all worth it.
It’s hard for me to remember the last time that I took portraits at the infamous Virginia Tech Duck Pond but I know it had to have been several years ago!
It’s no surprise that this GORGEOUS wedding was picked up by BRIDES Magazine! Between the perfectly paired color scheme, beautiful florals, an amazing venue, the list goes on. The details that Paige + Nikhil thought about for their wedding day are simply stunning.
I walked into the venue for the welcome dinner.. And I knew it was going to be dark.. But I didn’t think it would be THIS DARK!
There are several seasons of starting a business and what it looks like to continue to grow and scale as the business changes! We’re on the last episode of the Startup Series and the stage of business that I’m still in.
Can a professional photographer use the Canon RF 50mm 1.8 or is it necessary to have the high end Canon RF 50mm1.2L? We’re going to put them to the test to find out!
