Autumn is a friend from church and is expecting her first, a baby boy. 🙂 I am hosting a baby shower for her this weekend and wanted to get some belly pics of her to use as decorations. Any excuse for a shoot, right? 🙂 The light was amazing and Jason and Autumn introduced me to some really great locations. We even went to the place that they got married at and took some maternity pictures there…. talk about significance. 🙂 Can’t wait to meet baby boy, Autumn!!

UPDATE: You can view Kathy and Mike’s slideshow HERE.

No, this is not a political post. The stars I am referring to are the following 4 people (and canine): Kathy, Mike, Owen and Noah. And the stripes are just, well, you will just have see for yourself. 🙂 What a fun family and fun shoot this was! Noah, the dog, and Owen, the baby, competitively competed for “best of show” and I have to say they tied. 🙂 What can I say? I am a sucker for both! I mean come on – look at them!!!!

A recent belly shoot is coming soon as well!

Another teaser….

I know, I know… I am being really delinquent in getting the Gwen & Brian pics up in their entirety. I promise… they are coming soon! Slideshow too! For now, you can get an inside peak as to what I deal with in the editing process.

Sometimes I see a killer image… one that just jumps out at me and I want to see it enhanced any way I can. I try black and white…. and love it. I give it a vintage look and feel… and love it. I add some texture… and love it. And in the end, I am stuck with 5 different “looks” of the same image… and I can’t for the life of me choose which is “best.” So I include them all in the galleries and let the bride and groom hash it out. Maybe they don’t like any of them. 🙂 Oh well…. I enjoy the process tremendously.

* yes, I know Gwen’s face isn’t showing and that many would prefer that…. but i still love this shot, and think it is very emotive.*

Simply delicious….

Thats how I feel about these albums…. This is Susan & Greg’s album in the flesh. Drink it in. I have been waiting to post this to the blog until Susan and Greg received their album. So without further yapping…

First of all, the packaging…. NICE.


This is what we mean by “no gutter.” The book lays flat. 

And you do not lose any of the picture in the middle of the spread. 

Just an overall REALLY NICE book. The Italian leather cover is smooth and creamy. Yum.
