Surprise!!

Hi Friends! 

Hope everyone is gearing up for a great 4th of July weekend! As you are traveling to wherever you will be or getting ready for whatever events you may be attending. I thought I would share with you my day yesterday. Not very often do people pull a fast one on me and actually SURPRISE MEEE! So before we get to the pictures here is the story!

While I was in high school my best friend moved away to Texas, it was between my Freshman and Sophomore year so this has been almost 10 years ago! (wow that makes me feel old!) Since then I have only seen her a handful of times the last being over 7 years ago. We have both moved on in life her getting married and having an adorable little girl and myself opening up the studio and following that dream. Her sister Ashley also moved to Texas and has a beautiful daughter that is 3. I have kept in touch with both sisters off and on throughout the years via facebook and phone. When I found out that Ashley and Madi (her daughter) were coming up for the 4th I was super excited and talked them into making a little further drive into Atlantic to get a session done! I was super excited to FINALLY get to see them and meet Madi! 

I went to work yesterday like normal and waited for them to arrive. My mom came in to wait as well so she could "man" the studio while we were out taking pictures of Miss Madi. Well, I knew something exciting was going on when my mom literally jumped out of the chair all excited going "oh my goodness oh my oh my!!"  I'm looking at her like... Dude, what's your issue? Finally she spit out the words "Stephy is here!" Yep they sure did surprise me!

Now, on to the stuff you are here to see! 

This is Miss Aslynn she is Stephanie's daughter and just turned 1.

Madison was in love with picking the "flowers" :) she thought they were pretty. 

One happy baby in a rocking chair! She kept trying to figure out how to rock it!

Madi would only smile if I talked about pigs in mud... Thanks grandpa Steve!

It took a couple tries but we finally got them both to cooperate at the same time! 

This was out when we went to see Pa Darrell (My Dad) he was just as excited to see the girls as I was!

The girls got to see some horses, this surprised me that they were so excited and amazed by them. I guess I never would have imagined Texas not having to many horses! :) Steph informed me that Aslynn wants one.

I was instructed that the photo of all 4 of them had to be as "country" as possible. When they tell people in Texas they are from Iowa they get responses such as "do you grow potatoes?" or "is that even a state?" so I hope I did you girls proud!

Last is a photo that Steph took while I was laying in the grass with baby Aslynn. I will cherish this photo for a long time! 

Thanks for coming up girls. You certainly gave this photographer a day to remember. :) As to all of you reading this blog, sorry it is such a personal one, but some things are just worth sharing!

As Madi Would Say,

Deuces!
