Where the heck have I been...? {Doing what I LOVE}

    OMMMMGosh. I know I say this every single blog post lately, my very seldom posts... BUT MISS the heck out of you friends! BIG TIME. I've been struggling to maybe get a couple posts a week out, if I'm lucky. So what has completely taken over my every waking minute? Well, besides getting to be a  mama, & running a household, my time has been happily consumed with MAP (aka Melanie Ann Photography. I am absolutely in love, crazy hot love, with my little photography biz! It has just been AMAZING, eating up all my time staying up until the weeeee hours of the morning editing... but amazing none the less. It really isn't work when you love, really love, what you do! I thought I'd share a few of my most recent sessions... well really my FAVORITE one thus far! These two BEAUTIFUL crazy kids are so in love(gosh. I'm old). They were a treat to photograph. Let me tell you as gorgeous as they are, they are just as shiny inside. So refreshing! 

    I have a TON of my favorite bloggy friends to visit, I'll be over to visit asap! Please come back by Sunday & see what my handsome little Happy Jax has been up too lately... & of course link up w/ me for Finagle a Foto

Also I do I have a yummy treat for you. 
My spectacular bloggy soul mate is hosting one sweet giveaway right now! 
Head on over to my girl's site & enter real quick. Actually stay a while & say hello! Her blog is the shizniz.
Yes. I said SHIZNIZ!
 here is my latest couple's session.
I heart it.

P/S... I'll be sharing the 2nd half of this magical session on my FB page.
I would LOVE for you to come on over & check them out.
Plus, if you'd "like" me... that's be peachy too.
Shameless... I know! Lol)

I bet your clients were SO happy with these!! Amazing.

Sean Marie said...

We miss you Mel! Okay, so I've totally been stalking all these photos of this couple on Facebook. I really wanted to comment on them, but didn't want the couple to see my comments and think I was a stalker freak. Hopefully they don't read your blog. Anyway, you did an AMAZING job with these and all the others you posted. Really. These are the most stunning engagement photo's I've ever seen (and I've seen a lot of great sessions). You are so talented and that couple is super hot!

Happy Friday!
