Big things to come for 2010

Hello my lovelies! :)

As the year seems to be racing at break-neck speeds to the finish line and 2010 is just a blink away.... I just wanted to thank all of you who follow us- for your support! Without my readers and photo clients this would just be my ramblings... oh- wait- it IS just my ramblings.... (never mind that)- with out all of your gorgeous bodies, faces, food and wine- my life would be so much less colorful....and that would make me so sad.....

I'm so blessed that you all like what I love to do. So from the bottom of my heart.... MWAH! A big old wet one! :)

With a new big girl website on the way for 2010- I'm super excited to make this whole photography thing more than just a hobby... (again- I thank all of you for helping me practice and play and get to this point....) So keep your eyes peeled in the next few weeks as we girls (me and Big Bertha-) get a virtual face lift and Natural Approach gets ready to put our big girl panties on and go for it!

Much Love, Didi

Happy Hanukkah, Feliz Navidad, Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year!

Ms. Clause

"Hi dear- how was your day?........"

Santa never had it so good....... Ms. Clause.... looks A-mazing these days..... Miss D came to see me yesterday for some naughty & nice photos for her man's Christmas gift (nice gift!). It was cold and snowy, so we stayed indoors and drank bubbly and played. :)
These boots were made for walking..... or just looking incredibly sexy in.....

Pretty sure the logo says it all....

And if ever there was a photo for pirate's booty..... I believe this would be it.... LOOK at those eyes!

I know, it's hard to see the great cigar in this shot, huh?

A great corset and a kick-ass pair of shoes makes for a gorgeous, confident girl!

Thanks for coming to play with me D- you're going to knock his socks off- guaranteed! xoxo (the other D) Didi

The perfect gift

Look who stopped in to see me this morning..... baby Kameron! His mommy was coming to pic up her pix- and I found the perfect red bow- so we snapped a couple more shots and then sent them on their way. What a sweet baby boy he is- he is the long awaited blessing his parents have prayed for.... I'm glad they got their happy ending. :)

A funny thing happened on the way home..

A funny thing happened on the way home today- the sun came out! I couldn't believe it! It was cold, frozen and a minute skiff of snow was on the ground when we three girls left this morning.

We were on our annual pilgrimage to Bothell's Country Village to go and see Santa. We go and see Santa, butter him up with some adorable kid loves, spill our wish lists, get a photo taken and then we move on with our day.

We've been going to Rob Reising of Chapters Photography since Gabbi was a baby- and he's one of my photography heroes. Super nice guy- technically perfect and fun and artsy- all at the same time. He and his wife Karin have a beautiful studio and it was decorated to the nines with a great looking Santa, as usual. So I'll be waiting anxiously for my own Christmas photos to be coming before the holidays! You can check them out here:

So anyhoo- (my mind wanders these days....) I talked the kids into letting me catch a few candids of them in their super hip little ens ambles... and I love the vintage finish on these- mostly tho- I just love these girls.... they are growing up and changing so fast on me... I'm afraid I'll blink and miss it. :)

Catching up- and Catching my breath...

I know, I know-

I don't call- I don't write and worst of all- I haven't been sharing any photos lately! ......And the soundtrack in my head is playing over and over again, what I've been hearing from everyone for weeks now....

"why aren't you posting lately?"

"where have you been?",

and the most popular question- "when will my pix be ready?"

All I can say is- Thank you ALL for your patience- this has been a most amazing and busy season for Big Bertha and me! After working like a demon possessed in nuclear overdrive for the last few weeks in the seated position at a pc for about 16 hours a day (between the day job and editing)........

I can see light at the end of the work tunnel- and I'm certain- it's not a train....(though my ass now resembles my office chairs and my eyes are bloodshot and exhausted). I can say that I am almost totally caught up on every one's photos for the holidays!!!!

And a monster thank you goes out to my family- who- quite frankly, rarely see my face anymore- for the last six months- it's been me and Big Bertha running out the door to shoot pix or the back of my head at my desk- editing- having a close personal relationship with my Adobe products.

My kids have grown up a ton this year and are getting to be such good helpers. And Bid Daddy- is the King- seriously- I could never make a go of this photography thing without his help and support- He cooks, he cleans... (he slices, dices and juliennes quite well) he chauffeurs the kids to their practices while I'm at the day job and helps me shoo the kids to bed so that I can continue to work once I've gotten home from the day job.... So Miles family- I love you more than the moon & the stars.....

In the meantime- I leave you with Matt & Andrea's beautiful family- you're finished guys!

Much Love- Di
