Laurie and Andy

January 28, 2012

It’s been quite a while since I’ve done a non-child shoot, and I have to say – it was a really nice change of pace!  Apparently things go surprisingly smoother and quicker when you’re not chasing little people around!

Although it’s winter, the weather was pretty cooperative for Laurie and Andy’s engagement shoot, so we got to go outside for a bit.  It was so fun.  They were great sports as I kept squeezing them together: “Even closer, guys!”

Thank you guys.  I really had so much fun!!  Here are a few previews…
















They are too cute together.  :)  I hope you enjoyed them!!

Beth and Mike

September 24, 2010

Beth and Mike are so cute. They are due very shortly with a little girl, and you can just see their excitement! We stayed close to home for their maternity photos, taking many at and around their house. Then we went to the park down the street – they wanted to take some pictures at the very place where they will soon be taking their little girl. What a great idea! I love when people come prepared with ideas for their photos. It makes their photos so much more personal. Here are Beth and Mike!

I don’t know what it is about this one, maybe that Mike looks so content holding onto his wife…IMG_0549 copy

Ahhh, Beth and Mike, enjoy this last little bit together!  Soon your world will be changed.  :)  I can’t wait to meet her!

It’s been killing me that it’s taken me so long to post this!  Last week I had an unbelievable opportunity to travel to NYC and attend a Jessica Claire/Adorama workshop.  Jessica has been called one of the top ten wedding photographers in the world, and I can tell you she is amazing at what she does!  Now let me first say this – I’ve never won anything in my life. But when I saw information on Jessica’s workshop in NYC – a vintage wedding photo shoot nonetheless – how could I not put my name in the hat for a chance to attend?!  I’m sure you can imagine my disbelief when I got an email saying I had won a spot in her workshop.  Only 15 photographers were invited to the shoot and the waiting list was over 800 deep.  I even wrote back to make sure the email was legit.  Can you imagine flying all the way to New York and showing up somewhere you weren’t invited?  Ha!  I just wanted to make sure that wasn’t going to happen.  :)  Once I heard back that it was legit, of course I booked my flight and hotel room – how could I pass up an opportunity like this?!

I will also say I am a total wuss when it comes to travelling alone.  I am the girl who in high school wouldn’t pick up the phone and call to order a pizza because I didn’t like to talk to strangers!  But last week I put my big girl shoes on and made the trip.  And it was SO worth it!

Jessica had 2 models, Pax and Mary, dressed up in vintage wedding attire.  We basically walked around New York City looking for beautiful light and photographing the couple.  It was awesome getting to watch Jessica instruct them so she could get the shots she was looking for.  Along the way she shared her camera settings, techniques, and things she was looking for as we moved locations.  It was amazing!  Afterwords, she also shared some of her post processing techniques.  I learned some great techniques and tips that I will definitely carry forward with me.  It’s so much different seeing things live, in action, by someone who is extremely successful in their art rather than just reading about it in book.

I think we were out shooting for a little over an hour, and I have 580+ shots!  But here are some of my favorites of the bunch.  Pax and Mary are so cute and really did a great job.  They are married in real life, too.  :)

What an amazing opportunity.  I will definitely be putting my name into a few more drawings from now on.  😉

Amy and Andre

November 14, 2009

Amy was one of my sister’s college roommates, so I have known her for a few years. I was so excited when she got in touch with me to take her and Andre’s photos! They’ve been married for a few years now, but who couldn’t use some new couples photos, right?!  Amy is so sweet, she just giggles!   Andre, I know you didn’t have much time to ‘mentally prepare’ for our photo shoot since Amy and I scheduled it so quickly, but you were a great sport. :) Thank you guys again, enjoy your previews!
