I have been dying to blog this one, but have been struggling with updating the site and the blog all at the same time.  Yes, I am still working on my site update.  It is mostly complete and I should be there soon (fingers crossed).

I was really excited for this session.  I knew it was going to be amazing.  Angie (Maizie’s mom) has such an eye for styling, she should definitely be getting paid for it and seriously, if you are thinking of having a stylized engagement or any other type of session – you should consider hiring her.  She is, in fact, working along side of me as one of my wedding assistants this year and I’m really excited about that, too!  But back to the session, Angie had some really great ideas and an endless supply of cool props.  Maizie is gorgeous and should be a model, so it was quite easy to see how this was going to go….

I can’t wait to photograph Angie’s girls, again!  Always gorgeous and fun!!  Thanks so much, Maizie & Angie!

Vacation in August was awesome!  Now that the weather is really getting chilly, it’s nice to sit back and think about the beach.  We spent it with my brother and his extended family and I got in a few sessions while we were down there!  First some fun stuff from our trip…

Not how I usually process, but this boardwalk pic was just begging for a vintage touch.

This candy shop smelled amazing!

 

David & Liv stopped to pose for me at Penny Lane Mall.

More candy apples. This time at Serendipity Restaurant.

David took this while Livy and I were on the dock.

and my nephews…you might remember William and James from this session last year.

Teddy Bear Picnic

My adorable nephews.

I'm one and I'm gorgeous!

Love the face his making in the one on the right and his hat is awesome. 🙂

Got to capture this sweet little girl and her family just in time for her 1st birthday!

Trying to get the attention of the family dog and a one-year-old is not always an easy task. 🙂

Cake smash!

Check out those lashes...

She didn't really care to smash, so her daddy was trying to talk her into it. 🙂

The clean-up crew - lol.

My newest little nephew…I love him.  🙂

I was so lucky to get more than one smile from him. 🙂

An outtake...from when I was trying to get him back to sleep. So sweet.

Another smile...

Nico and his mama...

There are lots of moments in my life that led me on the path I am now, but if there is one that I can specifically pick out that was the turning point leading me to a photography career…it was this image.

To my best friend, Missy, I am forever indebted.  Way before I studied photography and before digital became the thing, I had several film cameras and a simple love of taking pictures.  While ending my vacation one summer with Missy and her son, Zach, she asked me if I would take a picture of them since she was very pregnant with her 2nd.  When I got the pictures back from the lab (remember when you actually had to wait to see what you had taken?), I was elated…Missy and Zach were perfect and the picture was beautiful.  So I decided to send that image into a national photography contest.  It was awhile before I heard anything, but one day I received a registered letter in the mail saying that they chose my image and it sent me over the moon.  It was that moment that I decided to study photography.  I wanted to know everything I could about it, not even to become a professional – just for the love of it… and the rest is, as they say, history.  So free sessions are forever hers, not only for being my best friend, but for always encouraging me to do what I love and for the three of them being the perfect models.  🙂

It makes me so sad...how fast he grew up. 🙂

Ian was the baby in the belly. 🙂

My daughter with three of her favorite friends.

Hysterical...

He has a flare for drama. I love it.

My buddy, Zach, all grown up.

and Zach took this one, for me and my friend. He says he wants to learn all about photography.
