{coming this august...}

Yep! It's true! We will have a new little addition to the Hicks family this August!
I guess that means I am going to have to change the title of our blog...we won't be DINKS (Dual income no kids) for much longer. :)
Greg and I could NOT be anymore excited for this little one to arrive!
We can't wait to share this new journey of life with you!
Greg, Kara & lil' Baby Hicks

Happy {NEW} Year!

I know, I know. I have been a really bad blogger the past few months! I hope to be much better in the coming year (no, that is NOT a resolution), but to get you caught up on the last few months, here is a little of what I have been up to...

Greg and I got to spend Christmas down in Oregon with my family this year. We had a wonderful time staying with my Brother and Sister-in-law in their brand new house they have been waiting so patiently for while it was being built over the past year. We were super excited that they were in their new home, because that meant that we got to stay with them AND take our beloved doggie Red with us. Ryan and Amanda have 2 dogs and a only family members that have a dog-friendly home. Red had a wonderful time hanging out with his cousins. :) And we had a great time hanging out with my wonderful family!

After McMinnville, we headed up to Vancouver to see some of Greg's family, then onto Woodland to stay a night with his Cousin and his awesome family! I had to privilege of taking Greg's cousins oldest boy, Corban's Senior Pics while we were there. He was SUCH a great subject, and Pam was the most wonderful assistant! I only wish I would have snapped  photo of her while we were out in the freezing cold, a few hangers with Corban's clothes hanging on her jacket while she held 2 guitars and a reflector for me! Ya, SUPER-assistant! :) All 3 of us had a blast, and I am so pleased with my first male senior photo session! Check out what an awesome model Corban is... 

Totally rockin' it with his sweet guitar...

Going back a few weeks, I tried out some new things this Christmas with my photography business that I hope to continue to do more of in 2010. I got to photograph a "Red Carpet Entrance" to a Company Holiday Party. It was a ton of fun, and complete with the red velvet ropes and all! Let me know if you have a party coming up soon that could use a Red Carpet Entrance! A sure way to WOW your guest and get your party started on the right foot! 

Another fun thing that I got to do this season was some Photos with Santa at a Doctors Office Patient Party. It was so much fun, and the Santa was SO great! He looked like the real thing...I think I was even fooled! He was so wonderful with the kidos! Be looking for a "Photos with Santa" session day by Kara Hicks Photography next Christmas! I can't wait to get my adorable clients with this wonderfully authentic Santa!

Well, I hope you all had a wonderful 2009 Holiday Season, and that your 2010 is off to a great start! I have transitioned to a part-time job a few months ago with the hopes of building and growing my photo business this year! Here is to a GREAT 2010!
Blessings to you!
