Melt my heart

Thursday, March 31, 2011

This little princess just melts my heart, I love her so much! I can't believe I'm the lucky gal that gets to be her mommy. She just looked so cute yesterday in a dress my mom made her that I just had to snap a few pictures. Maybe I'll share more from our impromptu photoshoot when I'm not so busy!

Jessica + JD: Engaged

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

The morning of this photo shoot, everything that could have possibly gone wrong, did. But then I showed up at our designated meeting spot and all that melted away as we started shooting. And everything went right, oh so very right.

p.s. Don't forget to enter the giveaway!

Oh my giveaway!

Confession: I love to read.

Confession: I've never read Twilight.

BUT! Before you take away my "I'm awesome" card, let me tell you about the book I recently read and loved -Son of Eden: Tales of the Guardian. "Wait a minute," you're thinking, "what does this have to do with photography?" Well, I'll tell you! I recently had the chance to photograph the author of this charming read. Meet Brianna J Merrill

She's totally cute, right? Confession: She's also my cousin's wife :) Anyway, because I believe in sharing the goodness, Bri and I have teamed up to give away one of her books right here on this blog! And not just any book, but a signed copy by Ms. Merrill herself! And not just any signed copy ... but (in the author's own words), "This specific copy is one of only 4 proof copies given to me ... therefore more rare if my books ever get big or hit the NYT bestsellers list." That's right folks, it's basically a collector's item. How do you win this amazing giveaway?

Sydney + Casey: Married

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

When I asked Sydney to name three things she liked about Casey, one of the things she said is, "he treats me so incredibly well, I know that he will always take care of me and be there for me." This was made very evident on the wedding day as we had the couple trouncing through snow, and Casey was always so quick to carry Sydney and dust the snow off her. The wedding day was absolutely perfect and I'm so glad they picked me to capture this special day.
