in the juice

we were in France in '99 staying with a family friend whose husband is a chef in Paris. the kitchen was particularly busy that night and our friend said something about the staff being "in the juice". ?! her english is less than perfect and our french is nonexsistant, so it took a few tries to realize what she was saying... it's a french saying that expresses when someone is insanely, over-the-top busy. well, that's me. i'm "in the juice" and will be soaking in it until mid-december!

so.. please excuse the space between posts and especially forgive if i don't get to highlight every session. you should go to recent shoots and see what all is new and if you recognize anyone (which you should since chubbyfoot is 100% word of mouth!)

here's just a few favorites from the last week. I'll try to add more another day. and to save time, I won't add links, but will mention the name if you want to go to my site and see more!
** my cover boy is nate from the woodlands. is he not the cutest ever??
i love this one of the little princess - (smith)

* and here's sweet Michael,  3 months. Just a year ago, his parents lost his brother late in the pregnancy, so this guy is very special to his mom and dad and it showed! take care you guys and I look forward to seeing him grow!

* setmeyers - these are actually good friends and neighbors with 2 precious kiddos. julie and i both love decorating and photography, so I knew she'd want some photos of her family in her home before they move this week (sniff) to tulsa. we got some fun candid shots that i wish i could do more of... i'm still trying to convince all of you to let me inside =)
here's a fun shot of her son in his room:

* and finally, 2 handsome boys to share.. this is the heitzmann's pride and joy. his was a classic shoot.. good and smiley at the beginning and harder as the hour progressed.. i love it when it happens that way though, b/c the parents are always more excited and happy with what we ended up getting! (since it ended in tears and they feel like the whole time was like that, when in fact, I got 100 great shots in the 1st 10 minutes!)

* and last  but not least is the harris fam.  I love this photo, although it doesn't capture his stunning eyes. thankfully, i got plenty of those shots too!(along with his parents)4001_1
