Ally Senior | Utah Photographer

I actually have a lot that I could blog but I just haven’t. I’ve been enjoying soccer games in the wind…like 60 mph I swear and today is going to be a freezing cold one but it sooooo worth it. Just kicking my feet up and resting this body. It’s nice but I do get restless at times. So, needless to say this session was fun! This girl is going places…a little secret all the seniors that I shoot are gonna go somewhere AMAZING in life. I love to know the plans that are ahead. One of these days I should have it written so I can post it with the session.

Ally thanks for laughing with me (making fun of poses) and trespassing. It’s my luck I always get caught and kicked off.

This is the “we might get caught look” and really all we did was get the blossoms.

My new neighbor

He has officially moved in next door. I mean I can’t blame him he has his own freedom (no cages) the land is large enough he could hide anywhere and the owner of this land is old enough he probably has no idea…most likely can’t even hear him at FRIGGIN’ 5 in the morning. We are going to be TIGHT like best friends I can feel it. Gabe did suggest yesterday that he could shoot him with his air soft and I told him absolutely NOT (you know how boys are) but I may have to rethink that since I have been up since the break of dawn.
It all started on Saturday he was wandering my yard free as a bird with his head up high. I asked around to those who may be missing a rooster and no such luck (It sound like I live on a farmville….maybe a little). I thought maybe all the cats that we have wandering around would try and have a yummy dinner…nope no such luck. He is still here LOUD and CLEAR. I’ve gotten used to all the other noises of my small town neighborhood the horses banging their heads on the fences and the cows screaming, okay mooing, at night when they take the babies away from them oh, and the smell is really special to me too. You’d be surprised that I get any sleep at all.

Introducing my new neighbor. Yep, I was outside taking pictures at 7:45 this morning. Here I think we had a moment considering we could be friends then he walked away and started crowing…whatever it is they do.

The yard…well as much as I could with my 70-200 on. It is a great spot for a location.

I have horses on both sides of me. We’ve had to capture these guys a few times from getting out.
Here’s the story from the last episode from my other neighbor’s horses.
I’m driving to pre-school and I see them out feeding on the grass and I didn’t think much about it but in my head new it wasn’t right so, I stopped my car and at the same time another neighbor stopped. We had 5 girls trying to get these horses back in their stalls only 2 of us dared to do anything, Holly sitting in her comfortable car directing traffic around us…he he, while Sara and I do the work (Sara knows horses). In the end they were safe and sound in their stalls I’m sure it was funny to watch for all those that drove past…picture a pregnant lady chasing after a horse in the middle of the road. It’s a good thing her Clydesdale wasn’t out that thing is huge. Lately, I’ve been thinking I may need to take some lessons on horses.

Me so pregnant!

I am now 23 weeks and counting. I don’t look like I should be counting but I feel like I am 9 months.

The Pros and Cons of being pregnant.
Starting with the Pros
I get to feel this life inside me…the kicks and hiccups all the good stuff.
I’m due first of August and that may sound bad but not so much to me. I can wear flip flops ALL the time because I can’t so much bend over to tie my shoes.
The baby will get to be born in WARM weather
I can go out with a newborn in the summer
I will have a birthday to celebrate every month of the summer
Good time for PHOTOS
The kids will be around to help and then off to school
I am 5 months and people tell me all the time that I don’t even LOOK pregnant but I can still sleep on my stomach
I don’t get morning sickness

The Cons
I feel like I am 9 months pregnant. I already waddle. It’s true. Maybe I just do it in my home and don’t let anyone else see it but I do.
I am 5 months and people tell me all the time that I don’t even LOOK pregnant but I FEEL pregnant and I look fat.
I think because I don’t show the baby is so inside me that he separates my hips to make for some major back and hip pain. Yesterday I only cleaned the toy room, on my knees so that I wouldn’t have to bend over, and helped the kids with their rooms. I was out for the day and today too. Oh yeah, I did some extended family photos too.
I feel too old for this.
I can’t play soccer anymore…boo hoo! No, really this was big for me. But I get to watch everyone else in my family play!
I feel very ugly. It’s the truth. I don’t want pitty. It’s just how I feel. So, I have made my husband take my picture so that I can see the pretty. It kind of works.

Here I am 23 weeks and counting.
My sister-in-law took this for me today. The background bugs me but I didn’t want to go outside any further because it’s just too cold.

Photo Exchange | Michelle Kane Photoraphy and Nicole Marie Photography

I did a photo exchange with Michelle Kane of Sheridan WY and Nicole Marie of Montgomery AL. It was fun to edit some else’s image for a change. If you want to join in the fun go to Michelle’s blog let her know. I know that she is already busy with it but is always wanting to add some new face’s to the mix. I am always inspired by meeting new people that share the same interests that I have…PHOTOGRAPHY!
This will be fun for those to see what changes can be made to a photo coming from different artists to see their vision of what it would look like for them. I love before and after’s and SOOC means straight out of the camera.

First off are my edit’s of Nicole’s
