Today is my anniversary. That means I have been married to Jordan for 3 years! I can’t believe it, in a way it seems like I can’t remember not being together, but in a way it feels like such a short time… it really has gone by so fast.

Isn’t it funny where life takes you? I would never have imagined where life would bring us but I wouldn’t change our time together for anything… 3 very happy years. Today is a good day.

(that is not a professional picture, it is one a friend took as a gift for me at our wedding-just so you know that I am not breaking any rules!)

My dad always likes to look at images from my recent sessions and I was showing him these images the other day, and I showed a few in color and a few in black and white. He looked at them and said, "It would be a shame for these not to be shown in color, the color is just so vibrant and you lose so much when you turn them to black and white". Normally, I disagree with my dad on that. I love black and white for it’s timeless quality… but in this session’s case, I agree. Some of these are just so much more stunning in color…

But I’m still Jenna, the one who loves black and white dearly, so I have to show you a few of those as well.

And I’m sharing a few family shots. I love this family, they are so fabulous to work with, trust my style and just let me do my thing!

Those of you who pay close attention, may remember that this is the baby with the amazing eyes (she won a place in the cutest image contest-I’m sharing that picture at the end of this post in case you don’t remember) that I photographed last year. Now she’s a 1 year old, smiling, crawling, happy little girl!

I have seen way too many photographers do this… whether it is stealing pictures from other photographers, or stealing text from other photographer’s websites, I just cannot believe people think that it is okay to steal another’s work and claim it as their own.

You can see more at http://www.whattheduck.net (they have some really funny stuff!).

Fun session! Oh I have so many favorites and I’m not even done proofing! Here is one, more to come, definitely!

Not quite done the whole she-bang, but my studio is ready, and I have had so much fun using it. I have some to share from clients, but first, a couple of Sam, the official "new studio model" of Jenna Slomp Photography.

I love my floor! It took me weeks to finally make a decision on it, couldn’t decide if I wanted a really pale wood, or a darker one… obviously you can see what I chose, I am in LOVE.

Not in the stage in proofing where I should be blogging but when I opened up the file from this little one’s shoot, I was so excited about this image, I had to share!

I am just thrilled with the results from our session and so glad we were able to reschedule the same day despite the weather!

***Keep sending in those babes of summer submission photos! I have gotten some ADORABLE entries so far!!! ***

When I walked in the door to meet these two sisters, I was pleasantly surprised at how cute they were! I mean, all kids are cute, but seeing them in their matching pigtails and dresses really made me excited for our shoot! I realized that I have seen these cuties before. Here is a picture I took at a wedding last year. _mg_3141
Her daddy was in the wedding party (and I knew that-but didn’t realize I had already photographed his daughters too!).

Here are some favs from their session… we had an absolutely gorgeous location to work with-their grandparent’s land… I really enjoyed these girls, and I think, for the most part, they enjoyed our session (the last picture might tell a different story, but that’s okay, they were tired!).

I was on a little vacation! I had a wedding to shoot in Valleyview (way the heck up north) last weekend (the big 07/07/07 weekend!) and then we took a nice little holiday at Mulhurst Bay on Pigeon Lake (about an hour outside of Edmonton)… my uncle owns the Cedar Crest Inn & Restaurant in Mulhurst and my grandparents manage it, so we had a nice stay there and had fun visiting with relatives.

Anyways, I am back!

I am so excited about two things…
1) My dad surprised me while I was gone and installed my new studio and office floors!!! They look so awesome, to say I am excited is an understatement, I am seriously through the roof excited! I can’t wait to get everything finished and have some shoots in there!

2) I am having a contest, it will begin Monday, it is my BABES OF SUMMER contest, so stay tuned for all the info! This is gonna be fun!
