Bridal Fashion

Did a bridal fashion shoot today, and I'm super psyched! Shot medium format film too (haven't done so in a few years) so I'm extra excited. The anticipation is killing me!

Here's a quick fave fresh off the cam. More AWESOME images to come :)

Little Charlene

Eat, sleep and be merry! Charlene slept like a baby in a every sense of the word. We turned her over a couple of times and yet she stayed in her sweet, peaceful slumber.

Photographing newborns is one of my new favorite things. I can't get over how adorable they are!

Just over 3 weeks old...

Little Eian

This little fella is a week old. I was very excited because he is one of my youngest subjects ever. SO cute! I think I might be starting to annoy people, myself included, because I say this everyday - I REALLY love my job!

The warm welcome, the sound of the little baby crying (briefly ;)), the joy of the new parents... it's a happy place to be.

Look at how precious Eian is...

Mommy Gail

At 9 months, Gail is super fit & looking oh-so-fab. Her little one is expected any day now... The gift of life is SO wonderful and I think the shape & form that a mom's body takes is as beautiful. Can't wait to photograph him too!

Happy Mother's Day!

Once (a very long time ago), my little brother & I thought it would be a really nice gift to make mom a tape where I played the piano & he sang, put it in a huge box, throw in some heart cut-outs, & fill the rest of the space with encyclopedia so she wouldn't have any idea what it was. This was prior to us realizing that we had NO musical talent whatsoever. A classic example of how you know mom will love you no matter what ;) No wonder she got us into sports.

My mom is the BEST. To those who know her, she is a woman of God, a great confidant, a generous heart, an "almost" public servant, the life of the party,
the hostess with the mostest, and the list can go on. To us, she is all that & MORE. Constantly instilling the values of giving, great fashion ;) and just yesterday, reinforced the value of a white lie! Love you mama!

With the way I do things, my dad would often make remarks such as, "you are your mother's daughter." The below evidence will show that I will most likely look like her in X-number of years and I'll be very proud to be even half the woman she is with the many, many lives she's touched.

Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there!

With the mother-ship on her last visit a few months ago.

Precious Little Sean

I was once again reminded of how lucky I am, not only that I get to do something I love, but also because I get to share my clients' happiest moments. This is a source of positive energy that fuels my cheerleader spirit :)

I photographed Sean's big sister last year & mommy called me back to welcome the new little sheriff in town. He is SO precious. Didn't even cry the whole time I was there.

Here's Sean at 14 days...
how CUTE is he?!
