adrienne + chloe

The day started simply enough...yawn/stretch/rub eyes...listen to the bellowing whir of the street sweeper.

Street sweeper!? AAAHHHH..... MY CAR!! I flew down the steps one slipper on, hair in a knot of what was a style the night before. For you see, it was "operation street sweep" in our hood. A one mile radius of, if you don't move your car by 7:30am it will be towed and ticketed. And even with the VERY best of intentions, I over slept which left me in the current state I was in. As I opened the front door and saw the freshly groomed street, I realized my car was gone as was the simple start to my day.

At the other end of town the mom and daughter that I was to photograph that afternoon had had their own trauma. Having come from Montana to see "Wicked" {AWESOME!!} and have a portrait shoot with yours truly, they mis-read the time of the performance...arrived at 4pm for the 1pm show. Even after much cajoling, they still couldn't use their tickets for that evenings show and ended up having to buy fresh tickets. Oye!

As I was walking to the tow station to pick up my car, I spoke with Adrienne and we both agreed that the best way to re-start our day was to head to St Honore, www.sainthonorebakery.com to enjoy a pastry and whatever else would 'make it all better'.

Fortified and feeling oh so fine, we headed into the the NW and had a blast playing and laughing our way through the portrait session.

Chloe is in that amazing transition from young girl to young woman {sorry Chloe, I know.. I know.} She is full of style and self confidence..lace and scabbed knees, the perfect balance of fun and poise.

Thank you for a funtabulous afternoon girls! And I'll be taking you up on that invitation soon. I've always wanted to see Montana. Leave the light on for me. :)
