We had a few last gorgeous days before it started to get really cold. I was happy to fit this beautiful family in on one of them. 🙂


Such a little cutie and so cooperative!

Especially in this part of the country, right?  Sunday was still so chilly, who would’ve thought that Monday was going to be completely gorgeous!  It’s times like these that I’m really glad to be the boss – I gave myself the day off.  No emails, no phone calls, no appointments, just me and my little one on the deck for most of the beautiful day (and my camera, of course).

We made a new tutu together last week, so we started off the morning with some dancing on the deck.

Dance like noone is watching!

These guys were anxious to soak up some sun, too!

Oh no -- a little bit of bird poo on the deck could spoil the fun...

No way! We moved onto bubbles. First the bubble mower, then just plain old bubble blowing.

Next came the outdoor concert she held for her Build-A-Bear collection.

We soon realized our winter toes needed some help and painted them blue (right after this photo was taken). 🙂

Time for a nap?

Just fakin' - there was no way we were wasting this weather with sleep.

Some crafts and then it was time for dinner!

We had so much fun.  When she gave me a big hug and told me that I was her best friend, well…I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day.  🙂

This past year has been awesome to say the least and before starting off the posts for 2010, I wanted to blog some of my favs of 2009.  There are too many to post them all, but keep an eye on the blog this year.  I’ll be posting my favorites from each wedding and session.  I’ve worked with some pretty great people this last year.  I’ve made some really cool friends through my work and through flickr!  Love you, guys – you all know who you are! I’m looking forward to another incredible year!

Possibly my favorite picture of my little one ever. 🙂 Taken at the beginning of 2009.

1st E-Session of 2009 was spent with Sarah & Dave in Pittsburgh. This image was featured by Shutter Sisters last Spring for their word of the month project - "Together".

Some good friends welcomed a new baby!

The kids I got to work with this year were not only a lot of fun, but great posers and gorgeous, as well!

This little guy became part of our family at the very beginning of 2009 and has worked his way permanently into our hearts!

And the amazing and fun couples we got to work with this year, were endless.  There’s just no room to post them all…

Some great locations were chosen in 2009 for our very hip, very cool e-sessions (engagements)!  So here’s a sneakpeak at the “to be weds” of 2010!

And I can’t forget about the amazing seniors and models I got to work with…

you can check out quite of few of them in the gallery on my site.  A special thank you to my niece, Christie, who models for me frequently.  She’s an art student with an amazing eye for fashion and photography and is, also, one of my assistants!

The very lovely and talented Christie!

So there you have it!  My new year’s resolution is to just keep growing – as a person and photographer.  🙂
