Wedding Sneak Peek!

From the wedding of two very amazing people, and good friends - My assistant Rachel and her new hubby Victor!

{two hearts within the flame}

(you can actually see two hearts in the smoke in this shot - must have been from all of the "love in the air!")

Congrats you two!

I have another wedding coming up on September 3rd, for my good friends Dana and Scott - I am so excited for them!

In other news, I am almost done with the website! I might even be able to launch it...tomorrow??? We'll see.

If you are waiting on me to finish a gallery, it's probably almost done, and will definitely be done by your due date!

You all know I am excited about the new website - but I need some help. All of my galleries are Movie Titles (but are somewhat generic in a a way due to copyright)

I currently need a name for my NEWBORN and my WEDDING Galleries. You can search The Internet Movie Database or google. It just needs to be a name of an actual movie.

For Example: The name of my Maternity Gallery is "9 Months", and my Baby Gallery is "Baby Boom"

I also am looking for names for TWO Packages - Medium and Small - Both need to be in the movie theme.

If you are a local client (or someone who would like to be!) and you suggest the winning gallery name, you will win a Free Session and 8x10!

If you are a fellow photographer friend, I will come up with some sort of nifty prop prize (I can make you a crocheted newborn wrap, or a tutu! - We'll see)

Comment with your answers, making sure you give me your name and email address!

I will be also posting a poll soon with all of the entries, but the final choice will be made by...me :-D

Sneak Peek!

This lovely lady is a friend of a friend, and we had a great time on Sunday playing in the studio!



Trying something new in processing with this one...

I had to do this - I actually bought the teacup with another session in mind (and I know, everyone's done it! He tried it out for me...

Fun Weekend with the Girls

I got to spend the last few days with my friend Hedy from Portland, and her two little ones! We've know each other since we were 6 years old, in the 2nd grade, isn't that amazing? We stayed overnight in a Hotel,and had a slumber party! We also played at the park, did a fairy portrait session, and went to eat at the Pita Pit! (and mmm I love the pita pit! I had babaganoush with cucumbers and pepperchinis!)

Here are some of my favorite photos -

Miss L on the Slide


Miss R loved swingin'


and she loved the slide too


Miss L posing on the bed wearing 4 tutus!

{hotel plus tutu}

Miss L in all her Fairy Glory

{you can never pick too many daisies}

{sweet girl}

but Miss R did NOT like being a fairy at all..that's the breaks I guess!

{she was NOT convinced}

Thanks you guys for coming to visit! I miss you already!
