I met Lael & Mark at the BRIDAL EXPO this past January and I was secretly wishing they would book with me! THEY DID – for their July 11th wedding!

I love this couple – they are so sweet and down-to-earth!

They picked out a GORGEOUS spot in Ithaca for their engagement session – Giles St. Gorge!

I met Shante on FACEBOOK after she saw Tidah’s maternity session! While I was in NJ getting my tattoo earlier this month, we set up a time to meet and have a session! My sister came with me and Shante’s family was so welcoming and awesome to work with! We had a GREAT time and I can’t wait to get back in August to capture her baby boy!

GOT INK?

Filed under: baby barden,just because — admin at 8:48 pm on Saturday, June 26, 2010

Samm and I got inked!

I’ve wanted a tattoo for a long time but have never had anything that I felt was important enough to put on my body forever.

We found a design online of a dandelion with the floofies floating away and turning into birds – and we fell in love!

I went first and I had expected to pass out – but it was not NEARLY as bad as I thought it would be!

I love it!!!!

Samm and I had miscarriages almost a year apart, hers was 3.20.2008 and mine was 3.17.2009. We got the tattoos to represent our babies floofing off to heaven like the dandelion floofies and birds.

Here are some photos of Samm -

It was a great experience and will forever remind us of our sweet ones.

TWENTY NINE

Not much has changed since May 26th of last year – other than I’m a year older.

But – this is the last year that I will be celebrating my real age! I will be 29 again next year and the year after that!

My dear friend Trudence had flowers delivered to me for my birthday – that I used in a session that very day!

My sister sent me a care package with some goodies in it! Do you remember those little pills with dinosaur sponges that expand when you put them in water? She sent me some of those too!

NICKI & KIRK

Filed under: marry me,wedding — admin at 8:48 am on Monday, June 21, 2010

I met Nicki at Chango’s one night while I had my photographs down there for a Women In Business display! I was already booked for her wedding – so we set her up with my assistant KT!

Things happen in life – lessons are learned and we realize how strong we are – and who we can trust. In February, KT decided to no longer pursue photography and I was left with Nicki & Kirk with no wedding photographer – along with 9 other brides.

Thankfully my local photographer friends came to my rescue – above and beyond! The brides were also incredibly understanding! Bridget Reed is the lucky photog photographing Kirk & Nicki for their October wedding – how I envy her – although I have an equally awesome bride and groom that day!

This is my favorite engagement session so far – thank you so much Nicki & Kirk for trusting my vision and for the trek around your property to find the perfect spots! I cannot wait to see your wedding photos!
