H Duttlinger | 18 month Photos

My friends Ashlee and Eric asked me to take their little boy's 18 month photos. Simply put, I was ecstatic! Hudson and I go way back, and his arrival was anticipated by everyone.

I think he is darling, and I hope you agree! We fought a little bit of rain and a few tears, but a green tractor and two pigs  made an appearance during the shoot last week.

I've known H's parents for years. Eric and his brother Alan were a few years older than me in 4-H. (That's how Ashlee and Eric met too!) Alan was also the only person I knew in Kansas when I began my career at K-State! Ashlee is my hairdresser, and she is awesome! She works at Trace's Salon in Valparaiso and does fabulous work. Okay, I'm done bragging on my friends.

But, I had so much fun shooting and editing these photos of Hudson. I am also excited to officially announce that one of them will be used as the cover shot for the upcoming June issue of Seedstock Edge!

Seedstock Edge is the official publication of the National Swine Registry, based in W. Lafayette, Ind. and this issue will be sent to over 12,000 people according to their website. I can't wait to share the finished product with all of you. Thanks to Katie Maupin, the director of marketing and communications at NSR, who saw my sneak peek of the photos on Twitter! See people, the power of social media is awesome!
