Springtime Ballerina

What little girl hasn't wanted at one time or another to be a ballerina? I think it crossed my mind a time or two, I seem to recall walking on my toes on occasion. For me, the true goal was to be a cowgirl or a world class gymnast, so I walked on my hands as much as I walked on my toes. But today I spent some time with Hannah who has been able to follow her dream to become a dancer. She has these cool shoes that make it SO MUCH EASIER to stand on your toes. Why didn't I have those? I spent some time with Hannah in my make-shift garage studio and then we went out to do some pictures in the great outdoors (hey, it's finally spring-like here!!!) Here are a few images from our session.

Decisions, Decisions, Decsions - The Cake

Throughout my years shooting weddings I've seen some very beautiful and very creative cakes. Personally, I can't imagine having to narrow down the choices. Thankfully, my mom's cousin made my cake and it was amazing and delicious.
But can you imagine... the tasting and having to pick just a few layer choices?
Or the design when today's cake artists can do such AMAZING cakes (Have you seen
Ace of Cakes or Cake Boss, I mean, really?!?)
I've seen some great theme cakes (Darth Vader, Alabama and Auburn, even a hideous Tennessee cake, drums, and all edible!). I'm posting a few images of some of the creative cakes that I've seen. Check out the Alabama hats, both are cake! How cool is that. The drum is cake as well! Enjoy...
