Being a Tease (Part 2)

And here are three from Trenten's first Birthday session - one super duper happy little boy!

Many many more to come....

Being a Tease (Part one)

So I am going on vacation -ahhhhhh vacation! Sadly this throws off my usual blogging routine. Since I tend to be a people pleaser, I have decided that I will share 3 pictures from each of my two weekend sessions. And then I will post a full blog report once I am back home!

Rebbecca and Tom are up first...

Olivia & Eric's Wedding

Olivia and Eric got married in Lewistown PA on a gorgeous and slightly windy day (ok -maybe slightly is an understatement). There is one thing that I could say over and over again, weather in PA is unpredictable! But come rain, or snow, or hurricane level winds; the photographs will still be taken, and they will be fun, and they will be gorgeous.

Wind withstanding, the day was perfect, and so was the wedding. Olivia and Eric couldn't help but grin every time they saw each other. They were both relaxed and ready to step out as man and wife in front of the world.

With life ahead of you and the world at your feet, I wish you all the best and every happiness!

Sugar and Spice and Everything Nice...

... thats what little girls are made of.

I throughly enjoyed getting to take pictures of Jamie and little McKenzie on Wednesday. I love babies of all ages, but it is so much fun to work with babies when they start reacting to you - their smiles and expressions change moment by moment and you never know what you will capture. McKenzie was just about 14 weeks old and such a sweetheart.

I am often asked when the best time to take pictures of babies is - for newborn shots, I advise taking photos between 4-12 days old. After that it is best to wait until the baby is 3-4 months and can push up while on their stomach and lift their head. If you are lucky, even at this later age, the little one will eventually lose the battle with sleep and you can get some of the classic newborn-esque shots that we all love.

Here are just a few of my favorites...

First Wedding of 2010!

Kerrie and Dan win the prize for getting to be my first wedding of 2010 - they also will hold a special place in my heart as my first wedding as a one job woman. I decided in the late winter that in order to best serve my clients and myself, I needed to leave my full time job and become solely a full time photographer.
But enough about me - back to the important thing - Kerrie and Dan's wedding!

The day was gorgeous and unseasonable warm - the bride glowed, the groom cried, and I enjoyed my first wedding brunch. Let me just say, if you are looking for ways to save some money, check out the Day's Inn brunch reception. There were even personal chefs to make 'made to order' omelets, this may be the best food I've had at a wedding EVER!

If this wedding is a portent of things to come - I think 2010 is going to be an amazing year!

Thank you for sharing your day with me, and enjoy just a small sampling of images to tide you over.
