I really classed that OMFG up, eh? Eh? YEAH I did.
Hello and happy Tuesday afternoonerrrrractually evening-ish once again!
First and foremost, my friend Lena of La Petite Coquin is feeling ill, and she’s been eating chocolate pudding to ease the pain of her sore throat. I was thinking about how I’ve been working on an impersonation of Bill Cosby for a couple years now, and when she mentioned the pudding I thought, even though it’s still rough around the edges maybe my Bill Cosby impersonation could cheer her up a little bit! Who knows. Worth a try though, either way. Hope it helps, Lena! Ok here goes:
“Shud up! Puddin Pops! Kids say the darnedest things! Ruue-ddyyyy!”
“Pip pip cheerio shudd up!” - that’s my British Bill Cosby, if he were British, you see. And my Australian Bill Cosby: “G’day mate! Flibbidy flobbidy! This is the Huxtable residence!”
Ok feel better, Lena!
Alrighty! I truly hope you’re having a pleasant day and/or ready to see something for which your heart will risk passing a love note to your brain, thanking it for looking, even though if the teacher sees, it’ll get in trouble. Your heart will probably find it worth the risk. Because that’s sort of what happened to me and my organs when I first saw this shoot submitted by the amaaaaaaazeballiscious Amanda of Hearts & Horseshoes Photography.
It’s funny; being a wedding blogger has many perks and exciting moments. Not gonna lie. Not. Guuunna. Dooit. You see some really interesting stuff come through your inbox every. But until now I hadn’t imagined, even in my wildest dreams, that my inbox could bring me this:
I’m talkin’ about holdin’ chickens.
I’m talkin’ about holdin’ puppies.
… or, additional puppies, to my one puppy WHATEVER YOU GET IT.
And I’m talkin’ about hangin’ with white horses and lookin’ pretty doin’ it.
That’s right… welcome everyone, to my perfect bridal portrait session. I WANT TO DO THIS. I NEED TO DO THIS. SO, WHO WANTS TO COME WITH WHEN I DO THIS?
Here’s the rundown from the amazing Amanda regarding how the shoot came to be:
When Amber & I talked about the style we really wanted a modern rustic look. Something that was contrasting to her animal friends but complimentary at the same time. Overall it was such a success. I couldn’t be happier with how they turned out. We had so much fun doing this shoot.
I did a shoot along time ago when I first started my business with a bride & a pig. ( I will attach). So I wanted to update my shoot with a softer lighter set of pictures, but I mainly wanted to use my farm animals :D The idea started with Cort (the big white horse). I just needed a bride. So I asked Breann, a bride I had from earlier this year if she would want to do a shoot with my feathered & fuzzy babies and she obviously said yes :D I made a bouquet out of lavender, pompous grass feathers & pine needles, all found in my yard. The husky puppy wasn’t planned but ended up being here just for the day and so we threw her into the mix because she is so stinking adorable! Then Edi (the newfie) & Fanny (the mini) were definitely the most difficult part of the shoot. They both kept trying to go opposite ways and Breann would start laughing because her arms were stretched out and she couldn’t move. The chickens, Ro-Birda & Bird-trude were definitely the easiest, they froze when she picked them up and softly clucked to us the whole time… they are funny chickens. I went into the shoot knowing that I couldn’t really plan how the “kids” were going to act so I didn’t have a lot of preconceived plans as far as poses, we just went with what the animals did or Breann did. One of my favorite pictures was when she is almost pushing Cort away and laughing and that’s because Cort kept trying to snack on her dress.
And now… the evolution of what is known in the puppy owning world as “The Irresistible Puppy Kiss.” No it’s not, I made that up. Anyway look:
Zo, my friends… I vould like to heah ya ansues to mah kesjuuns. I’m hoping to perfect my written Heidi Klum accent soon. We’ll get there.
1) What do you think of this shoot?
2) Would you want to include your pet, or other animals, in your shoot? On your wedding day, perhaps?
3) totally optional – Do you do a Bill Cosby impression? Or any impression at all? Feel free to share and/or make a fool of yourself so I’ll have some company.
Excited to hear what you have to say!
xoxo! – Alison
