Micah and Anthony

These two are so photogenic! It was one of the shortest sessions I may have ever had, because the lighting was perfect and they were so easy to work with! I love working with couples that make my job super easy! I can't wait to photograph this wedding...

Just the start of the Marotti Wedding

This was one of the nicest brides I have ever worked with! It was such a pleasure shooting her wedding and spending time with their friends and families. One of the things I love about wedding photography is seeing all the different styles of weddings one can have. She had peacock feathers in her hair, in the arrangements and bouquets, on the cake... it was beautiful! 'Makes me want to get married again to do all that fun planning (same groom, though, of course)!!! :) I've just started editing, so there are many more to come on this wedding!

Sweet and Happy Rafe

Oh my goodness, would you take a look at this little boy? I mean, from the looks of his parents, you know he's going to be cute, but that crinkly nose? I just can't stand it- he's just too cute for words! :) Babies' eyes, to me, look like little worlds. Just sparkly and clear and so full of life. I love to photograph that "look" that babies have that just make the world seem a better place for a little while. This young family is just darling, and I have so much fun photographing the rest of her family as well. I really have the best job ever.

The Hitchcocks

I love this family! Mama is one of my dear, dear friends, and I'm so glad to have been able to take these portraits for her. These kids are something else... just beautiful and so, so sweet! It was a really fun time, even with the challenge of getting 4 kids to look at the camera, let alone SMILE at the camera, all at the same time! This is one of those families that just make you happy for all of them, they just get along great and you know there's a whole buncha love... :)

The Mason Girls

OOOOOOOH how I love these beautiful little mini-supermodels. :) I took these gals pictures last Holiday season as well, and they've grown so much! Little Anna was a newborn last year! Time flies, and I didn't realize just HOW fast until I got a newborn myself... phew! It seems like just yesterday we were bringing her home from the hospital, but it's been almost 5 months now! These little doll-faces were so much fun, and had just the most spit-fire, can't-help-but-laugh personalities. ;) The key to getting good shots of small children like these girls, is to give them at least an hour to warm up and to 'play off some energy,' as well as get comfortable with the camera and the crazy lady behind it. :) I also learned a new trick for little ones who just do NOT want to do what you say: tell them you don't want them to smile and you don't want them to look at the camera, and boy, I got some picture perfect smiles everytime! Hahaha! Love these girls!

The Suttons

This is the family of a girl who's wedding photos I took earlier this year. They were so much fun! The bride was one of the most organized I've EVER worked with, and this session was no exception! :) She had quite an itinerary in her head and the session flowed smoother and quicker than I ever thought with a family this large! This is such a photogenic family (especially those wittle babies)!! :)
