"Sssshhhh, listen, do you smell something?" ~Ghostbusters

been very very busy lately, here are some photos from just a few sessions over the past month. fun!


while i don't *really* photograph weddings, i made an exception last month and had a fabulous time photographing this couple along with all their family and friends. it was a gorgeous day and i was commissioned by a family who was hosting the wedding at their house for the bride, who is like a daughter to them. the bride and groom were like models out of a magazine and the whole event was just gorgeous. the funny thing was that most of the pictures i took of the couple were at the neighbor's house, who just so happens to be my obstetrician! and i just love my OB! we hug and kiss hello and hardly ever think to even talk about the pregnancy or baby, we chat and chat and try to figure out when we'll both have the time for me to come photograph him with his partner and their adorable dogs! he was so fun and we used his lovely yard as the photo backdrop as their was a huge tent setup for the wedding next door. at one point i had to laugh when the groom and his macho guy friends were all set up for a picture and i had to insist they move four feet to their left. they weren't sure why, and even when i told them to look behind them they didn't seem to notice. "If you stay where you were, you'd have a giant gay pride flag flying over your heads." my OB heard me telling the guys this and just cracked up. i'm just glad i caught it before snapping the shot. and after i shot the evening ceremony and it started getting dark, i simply hung out with my doc and his partner and ended up staying til midnight! what a crazy photo session!

my OB!

after taking lauren's senior pictures recently, her dad asked if i would photograph a family reunion they were hosting in conjunction with his mother's 80th birthday. as i had said earlier, i don't *really* do event photography, but i couldn't resist and the whole family was absolutely adorable! they were hilarious and charming and i could tell you all really enjoyed one another's company. it was very sweet being their for half of their party and like the wedding, i'm sensitive to the fact that i'm involved in a personal, family moment and i try to either fade into the background for candid shots or make people comfortable for the others.

the family who hosted (i love the dogs in the pictures!):

i had an early evening session on a nearby town with a sweet little family. the kids were so cute and had lots of energy-but what kids don't? the best part was the session ended with the kids showing off in their in-ground pool and lots of waterbaby shots!
