I typically schedule portrait sessions during the golden hour but to accomodate a baby's schedule, we decided a morning session would work best for Keith & Alicia and their sweet little boy, Nathan. Towards the end of the session, Nathan was ready to go home. He did very well throughout the shoot but we couldn't get him to smile. With a smile or not, Nathan is such an adorable baby. I loved editing Alicia & Keiths photos because I would zoom into Nathan's baby face and giggle from his cuteness. We did get one huge smile towards the end as Mommy lifted him up high.
Amanda and Ryan were such a pleasure to work with. You immediately sense their love for one another. They met at work and started out as friends. A year later they began dating. Seven years later, I had the opportunity to photograph their wedding day. You can see that they are best friends and I know that's what it takes for a relationship to work. They love sports and are very active with Amanda's adorable son, Sam and his sports. Amanda's Mother gave Sam and Ryan a gift after the ceremony. A baseball signed Ken Griffey Jr. and Ken Griffey Sr. and the card said to another "great father/Son team. Their wedding was packed with entertainment for all, a photobooth, sparkler exit, in addition to a '39 white Packard that was in honor of her Father who's a big Packard enthusiast. What I loved is that they did not forget about their two weenie dogs as they diplayed a bride and groom weenie dog figurine by their wedding cake. A big thank you to Russel Snider who has a great eye for capturing details and special moments of the day. Congratulations Amanda & Ryan!
