New!! Wedding and Engagement Photography

So, I NEVER thought I’d say this but I LOVE WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY!!!!

Meeting a couple for the first time for the engagement shots and learning all about them as individuals and as a couple is an absolute joy.  And each wedding is so unique with so many opportunities to capture each couples’ own individual stories.  Don’t put it past me to lay on the ground or shoot through a champagne glass to capture that unique or fun shot.  My husband, Steve, joins me on these adventures capturing even more candid angles when no one’s looking making for a collection of formal, fun and spontaneous shots from beginning to end.

If you are recently engaged or know someone recently engaged let’s chat!  I might have a quirky style but it just might be what you’re looking for in your wedding photographer!

These shots are just a few from Alisha and Emily’s wedding.


Family Photos and Young Children

Children amaze me.  Their energy, sometimes their shyness but always their curiosity about the simplest things in life.  And how proud they can be over all their accomplishments in their young lives.

I recently met the most delightful family.  The children were rather young – just 6 and 3 – so I was prepared for a very quick shoot.  We had a lovely Autumn day and my young subjects were playful, super polite and adorable.  We walked all over the Botanical Gardens finding bugs, leaves, soft mossy beds and even a “troll’s house” – well, that’s what I call it at least.  We were playing for over an hour.  I was happily surprised at how many opportunities I had to take this lovely family’s photo and even happier with the final results.

As I picked up the final images from my printer I had to brag a bit about how great these kids were.  I was gently reminded that behind every great kid is a great parent.  True statement!!

Pregnancy and Canine Kids

For those of you who are moms or dads to a four legged baby (or two!), you’ll understand the bond we share with our furry babies.  They love us unconditionally and I tend to love mine back just the same.  So he makes a mess when chewing up a new toy or digs up a newly planted flower because he thought his ball was hiding under there.  I find my “puppy” to be entertaining, loving and a great friend.  So when I get a call to photograph a family with EVERYONE  included – two legged AND four legged – I am thrilled!


So, when Korey and Elynne called for a maternity shoot I was so excited to see Clifford, a two year old Boston Terrier, would be included in our shoot.  Clifford has been the center of attention at home but will soon have a human baby brother and will have to share the attention.  I don’t think he’s particularly happy about it but I think he’ll be a great big brother.


Korey and Elynne were game to capture this moment in time before their new baby is born.  Clifford was more interested in the treats we were using to bribe him to pose for me!  I’m excited to meet his new baby next month and hope that Clifford is as excited to meet him as the rest of us!

2014 Balloon Proposal

A few months ago I got a text from a friend.  Her brother was about to propose to his girlfriend of 11 years while enjoying a hot air balloon flight.  His girlfriend had no idea what was about to happen and my friend was hoping I was available to photograph the event.  Not wanting to miss such a fun surprise, I quickly rearranged my schedule and arrived at the balloon company posing as a newspaper photographer.  Neither my friends’ brother or his girlfriend suspected a thing!

Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other ideas and we spent the next two hours waiting for the wind to die down.  Luckily, the balloon pilot and ground crew decided they would give it a try and they started to inflate the balloon.

As the balloon floated up into a late autumn sky I was delighted to capture a few interesting shots with the balloon flying towards the moon,
