I always cry at weddings...

I am in the process of backing up the bazillion photos I took at the wedding, but I spent some time playing with this one, just cuz I like it...

{a moment}

click to view larger. I need a new blog with bigger photos!

I'll have more up after I get home from CA!

I left my heart in San Fransisco....

If you didn't know already, I'm on Vacation in California! We had a great time today in San Fran - did Pier 39, went on a boat trip and everything! I hope to have some photos up tomorrow of the cool things we saw.

I'll be photographing a wedding tomorrow for one of my favorite family members, my cousin M. We are 5 years apart in age, but were close as sisters when we were little!
Here's a pic from the last time I saw her - 2005

Idential cousins..

Listen...do you want to hear a secret?

This is my last session before we leave to go to California! We are visiting the Bay Area, mostly because one of my favorite cousins is getting married! She was the flowergirl in my parents wedding, so we are thrilled to be able to be there for the big day! I am taking the photos along with another photographer friend. I'm excited!

If you have an order pending, it must be in by Wednesday for you to be able to pick up June 1st. I will not be sending anything to the lab from May 22-29 (While I'm on vacation)

A few thanks: Thank you to Lyzze for allowing me to assist you at the wedding the other night, I really appreciate it!

and to my assistant Rachel so is tireless and does whatever I want before I want it!
You're the best!

Sneak Peek!

I looooove babies! They are so sweet and soft, and usually don't want to sleep because being in my studio is SO interesting...but still, this little 2 week old was a joy, and SO bright eyed!

This was about as sleepy as we got


Funny Kid



I call this one "I'll tumble for ya" :-D

I'll Tumble for Ya

I have some him with Big Sisters and Sisters by themselves, but I need to get some other things done now - Enjoy!

Playing the Catch Up Game

Whew. If I owe you a gallery, hang in there. I'm working on it!

Right now I'm loading the photos of the absolutely adorable 2 week old I did today (and big sisters!) - and trying to get their peek up.

It's Lala day and I took the easy way out - I took Daniel to a resturant with a playland - and free wireless for me! He's having a blast.

More later!

Give Cancer The Boot!

I'm reposting this for a friend - You can visit her Website "Music Birth" from the link on the sidebar

"Friends and Family,
Last year I attended an event called Relay for Life, and it forever changed me. It is an all night walk that raises money for cancer research and prevention. As the sun sets, it represents the darkness that a family experiences when a loved one is diagnosed with cancer.The long dark night represents the hardships of living with the
disease. And the sunrise the next morning represents hope. I have personally experienced the darkness as I watched my dad struggle through chemotherapy, and eventually pass away. But I have alsoexperienced the hope as my 3 year old daughter has been cancer free for almost 2 and a half years. These experiences have moved me so much, that I am returning again this year with my husband and daughters to walk the track throughout the night. Please support me in my efforts to raise money for this worthy cause by following the link and donating. Every cent counts!"

Sneak Peek!

You know, I had alot of people tell me I was crazy when I told them I was doing a "Tea Party" themed session with 19 month old twins! I had the best time, and thank you so much to their Mom and our "helpers"!

Bonnie Blue

...Double the Fun....

Honoured Guests

Secret Ingredient

That's all for now. I have a little story to tell for those who weren't there...you see, we had some friends and family of the twins join us for the session, and once when we changed locations, I had like 8 people behind me, carrying props and the babies..it was like having an entourage. It was so cool! I totally felt like Annie Leibovitz with her 17 assistants! HA!
