(Almost) White Christmas

>> Monday, December 27, 2010

The title of this blog is deceiving since I don't actually have any photos of our post Christmas snowfall. Well, except a couple from my phone...

Hopefully if we get any more snow this year my neighbors will actually be in town to enjoy the snow! Honestly it was more like slush than snow anyway so I pretty much decided to use the day to catch up on cleaning. Gotta have those every now and then.

Christmas came and went really fast this year. So fast that I somehow forgot my camera. I'm not sure how that is even possible but on some level I was glad to be able to just relax and let everyone do the shooting for once. Here are just a couple from last Sunday with my mom's family-

My girl is getting huge!!

Finally, I've gotten around to decorating for Christmas. I kind of went all out on the tree this year since next year I'll have less open space. I'll be getting my white bookshelves sometime in January and then the livingroom will be mostly finished. My next project is the half-bath and my bedroom. Will hopefully have before and after pics up in a couple months. More than ready to get going with all of this!

I have no idea why the lights on my Christmas tree look blue. I could only find the halogen lights this year at target so for whatever reason when you photograph them this is the way they appear.
My coworker made this. Pretty cool.
This is an ornament I got from a friend the Christmas before we graduated from Clemson in 2005. Nice to finally be able to use it!
Another cool gift from a coworker!
She's getting great at posing. Waiting for those puppy modeling offers start streaming in ;)

I hope all of you had a really wonderful Christmas! Stay safe and ring in 2011 with style.


Lee and William!

Gotta first start out by saying that I think the very best part of photography is having the opportunity to shoot some of your friend's biggest life events. I've known Lee since elementary school. ELEMENTARY SCHOOL. We're talking lunch boxes, hello kitty, Lisa and Frank, duckhead shirts, hot pink socks and leg warmers. You get the idea. Anyway, I got to go through all of that with Lee and now I'm getting to photograph her hanging out with the man she will be with the rest of her life. I just think that's kinda cool.

These are a few of my favorite shots from our engagement shoot at the Riverwalk. We barely caught the last of the autumn colors, but I think some of the semi-winter environment made an interesting backdrop as well. Hope you enjoy.

Check out the rest here!


An Update on Luna

>> Monday, November 8, 2010

Some of my close friends know what's going on with Luna but I haven't really been able to talk to many of you about it. Figured it's easier to write a blog.

Last Thursday Luna came down with a virus of some sort and I noticed the symptoms on Friday after she had diarrhea plus a runny nose. Typically I wouldn't think much of it since puppies can get diarrhea easily based on any change in diet. Thankfully I decided to take her to the vet after work and they found her to have a 104* temperature (normal is 102*). They asked me to let them keep her overnight and said she would probably be okay to go home on Saturday.

Saturday morning I received another call from the vet saying that Luna still had a slight fever and diarrhea so they would like to keep her over the weekend to be safe. My latest update as of this morning is that her temperature is normal but they're finding blood in her stool. She's been hooked up to an IV since Friday to provide her with fluids and antibiotics. They still don't think it's anything too serious but they are wanting to keep monitoring her just in case.

My sick baby on Saturday morning. She was completely out of it when I first saw her. This sight absolutely breaks your heart.
After a few minutes she started playing.. in a very sleepy kind of way. I'm glad she at least recognizes who I am.

I can tell you right now, it's really really hard leaving your sick pet at the vet hospital. I can only imagine what it's like to have a sick child.

I'll get to see her again today after work. I'm praying that she takes a strong turn in the next day so she can come home soon. Both for her sake and for my pocketbook. I'd like to say I'm really glad I had money saved up before I got a puppy. Good lesson for first time pet owners!

Other than her sickness, it's been such a joy to have her. She's definitely been aggravating at times, but I know she's such a great dog and will be a wonderful addition to my life.

Here are happy photos so I have something to look forward to when she comes home. Everyone should meet this dog. Seriously.

About Me

My photo
Tia Nicole Photography has launched this summer after many practice photo sessions and the encouragement of some dear friends and family ("Life Through Tia's Lens" was a recommendation of my good friend, Kristin, who has been an avid supporter the whole way through!). This blog has documented the process from the beginning and also dates back to some older rantings during grad school and football seasons. Feel free to get to know me and my work. I like to focus primarily on natural shots, true emotions and beautiful landscapes. I also absolutely adore kids and pets so you will find a good bit of my work in these areas. Feel free to contact me anytime! I love blog comments!

My pup, Rylynn!
