This was such a sweet sister portrait session. The park is perfect for portraits and it's a calming environment. The pond was full so we had to walk through some mushy ground to get to the perfect spot but Madison and Jessica were troopers. It was an adventure for them who were not too excited about gettting their photo taken. Overall, their Mom who's my friend was happy and now has the fourth photo framed on her wall.
Erin & Ryan's wedding will be very dear to my heart. They are getting married at the same venue where I got married. Erin was referred to me by my client who's wedding I recently photographed in October. Erin was a bridesmaid and a great one at that. When I met with Erin & Ryan and found out they were getting married where I did, I think I pleaded with them to allow me to photograph their wedding. They already have their engagement guest signature book, I'm just a bit behind in sharing their engagement photos. Here's the lovely couple enjoying the beach which is steps away from their home.
This 12x12 square album was just delivered to my clients today. I haven't taken many photos of finished albums that I've designed and thought I should highlight this beauty here. The Euro leather offers a sophisicated look with a contemporary design where the prints are experty mounted flush to the page. The album lays flat, perfect for showing it off on your coffe table.
Since I was a kid, I've always loved dogs. We had German Shepards, a mutt and now I'm a mother to two Pugs. I do have a category for Dogs on this blog and hopefully, more work will be listed for 2012. Meet Max who frolicked along dog beach as if it were any other play day with his owner, Becky. I love the combination of Max's action and regal poses. There's one of Becky commanding him to sit with her finger, his intent stare is adorable. Becky didn't want to be in the pictures but I convinced her to take one which is one of my favorite shots of a beautiful woman and her best friend. This was such a fun shoot, I can't wait for the next pet assignment.
I'm still attempting to showcase work from 2011. Antoinette and James celebrated a mid-afternoon wedding. With four hours of coverage, the focus was on Antoinette's hour with her Mother and wedding party. With 10 in her wedding party, they all gathered together to pamper and prepare the bride for her grand entrance. And, what an entrance it is at Old Ranch. The 16 step staircase is quite a feat in heels and a gown but Antoinette pulled it off with style and grace. Here are highlights from their beautiful day. A big thank you to Maribel Farina who came to my rescue the day before the wedding to assist me through the ceremony. Thank you for not only coming through at the last minute but you really captured some creative images of their ceremony.
