Not Your Normal Photo Shoot

But then, do I do anything normal?

Shea and I are celebrating our tenth anniversary at the end of the year. I wanted to commemorate ten years of awesome with a photo shoot that would show some, um, personality.  Shea balked a bit about having to get fitted for a tux and maybe questioned my sanity as I had him move heavy planters while I scraped chicken poop. But as it turned out, we had the time of our lives taking photos. It was like our wedding day, but with more animals.  Thanks to my amazing sis in law, Sandy Whitaker, for making this possible!

Purple Barn in all its glory!

Whitaker Gothic.

You try keeping a straight face.

Usually the hardest part of a photo shoot is getting Shea to smile. The goats posed new challenges.  Here is my favorite blooper:

Shea is not mad, just exerting great force. Goats are stubborn!

Another  new challenge: having your dress munched on:

We love our babies. I didn’t actually mean to get lip contact here. Creepy because goat lips feel like people lips (bet you didn’t know that)

Wrangling animals in formal wear can be tiring.

Think we will call it a night.

Let’s go roll, roll, roll in ze hay!

Seriously good times.  Thanks Shea, for putting up with my crazy ideas and always making my dreams come true.  Here’s to ten more years baby!!

P.S. In case you wonder, we do take traditional family pictures also. As a bonus, here is a family shot we took the week before. And here is a link to Sandy’s photography FB page. She really is awesome. You should see her wrangle chickens with a camera in one hand!
