Michael and I spent a full week and a half in Evansville, covering the Agility Club of Evansville (ACE) and Evansville Obedience Club (EOC) trials.  July 4th fell midweek between the 2 trials so we stayed and had a mini-vaca.  It was so nice of Evansville to set record highs while we were there.  It was HOT HOT HOT!   Thankfully the A/C in our travel trailer held up and we were cool as cucumbers.  If you didn't know, Michael is quite the cook so I had it the best.  He cools the best steaks ever!  Seriously!  Look out Chef Ramsey!

For any of you with RV's here is a little tip if you have a skylight in the bathroom... Tint from Walmart!  Take the skylight out, which entails standing in your shower, having a screwdriver, scissors and good tape.  Clean the skylight and then apply the tint to the top side.  (not the side that would get wet in the shower.).  I just taped mine on where the tape would not show.  Then I didn't have to worry about actually applying it and the mess of bubbles in the tint.  Afterward, the temperature had to drop at least 10 degrees in the bathroom and the light was much better.  Not so harsh.  We used the middle grade tint.  Not too light and not to dark.  This is super easy DIY hack. Love it and will do in any other RV we ever own.   

So, we made it through 8 weeks straight of some awesome trials.  Tiring but worth it.  After a couple of weekends home we are getting ready to hit the road again.  Evansville , if you are listening... Please go easy on the heat this time!  HaHa.  We are looking forward to some exceptional times to come. The TDAA Petit Prix is not too far off and we have Derby City and some other fun trials before then.  Can't wait to see our Kentucky friends at the Petit Prix!  They are getting some cool shirts together for the event and will be looking quite sharp.   

Seeing all of you along the way wherever we go, is what we like best about Springfield Photography.  Everyone has to work to pay the bills, and we are so blessed to get to hang out with all of you and have fun while we work.  We think of you as family after all.  :)  Please travel safely and we hope to see you soon.  Remember to smile as you and your fur baby run... We will be watching (and clicking)!

Love and Blessings to all...

Laurel

From Barn Hunt to National Specialty https://www.springfieldphotography.org/blog/2018/3/from-barn-hunt-to-national-specialty We just finished uploading the February AQ4U Barn Hunt.  It was an awesome trial with 2 (yes 2!!) Super Bonus' in Crazy Eights!  I had never seen one take place much less two.  Congratulations to Linda Fields, Brian Wakefield and their furry team mates for making it happen!! In addition to a wonderful time there was (of course) wonderful food!!! 

Now we go into full speed prepping for Pom Nationals.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone at the Specialty.  It is so wonderful to have such diversity in the events we photograph.  No matter what event you participate in, everyone loves their babies the same.  That is what it is all about.  Time with our best fur friends!

Back To Being Busy, Busy! https://www.springfieldphotography.org/blog/2018/2/back-to-being-busy-busy Springfield Photography had a nice little break over the holidays with a lighter schedule and some much needed time at home.  Now we are primed and ready go.  It's a good thing too with lots of trials and events coming up. Last weekend was a blast at the ACI Agility Trial in Indy.  It was great to see friends from many of the clubs we visit all in one place.  Lots of new puppies were there too.  It is so much fun to watch them grow into great athletes.  Time certainly flies with our children and our dogs.

We are still very excited about our new website.  We will all get to learn together.  Please contact us if you have any questions or need help.  We have added some instructions on how to order a CD or similar item.  There is a drop down attached the the ABOUT section.  Please let us know if you find it helpful or if we need to add anything. 

Have a great weekend and hopefully I will see you at the AQ4U Barn Hunt.  Michael has to stay home and work since he is allergic to straw.  I feel bad for him because we all know...   #BarnHuntRocks!!

See you soon!

Laurel

Springfield Photography - Our New Web Home https://www.springfieldphotography.org/blog/2018/2/springfield-photography---our-new-web-home Welcome Friends to our new website! 

We have dreamed and prayed about this for a long time.  This blessing actually arrived sooner that we thought it could and we couldn't be happier.We will be learning how everything works right along with you.  If you need any help at all please contact us.  We hope you will be just as glad as we are that you can now use your smart phone or tablet to look around or place an order.  Yay!  And to us, the shopping cart is like going from a Gremlin to a Ferrari.  Love the bells and whistles.  LOL

Hopefully everyone is ready for an upcoming weekend of fun, whether it be an agility trial, scent work, or some other good time with your fur babies and friends.  I think I will be hopping the state line and seeing what kind of fun is going on in Indiana this weekend.  

Let's have some fun!!

Laurel
