Sweet Hilary Turns One…

July 30th, 2010

You might recognize this little girl and all her soft looks that accompany her  sweet face.  My words are few this time with this little girl only because she doesn’t really need many. I think her photograph speaks better than me.

A Dainty Gift…

July 29th, 2010

I have the best of intentions when it comes to creating things.  For instance, I tell my husband that there is no need to buy wall hangings for the living room because I have the best of intentions of painting a huge canvas that is going to hang above our television center.  Or how I […]

I have the best of intentions when it comes to creating things.  For instance, I tell my husband that there is no need to buy wall hangings for the living room because I have the best of intentions of painting a huge canvas that is going to hang above our television center.  Or how I have about 20 or so wood square  pieces of every variety-oak, cherry, walnut and zebra  just waiting in the back of my closet to be made into a mosaic on the other wall.  And then there is my bucket of fabric, tool, ribbon and buttons just screaming at me every time I glimpse their way saying, “DO SOMETHING WITH ME!”  It just makes me think to myself, one day I will have time to put forth these ideas but until that day comes I am so THANKFUL for those people who are really good at manifesting their creativity and sharing it with the rest of us! So this post is dedicated to the awesome woman who made these delicate, o-so tiny hair flowers for our tiniest JEM’s.   I photographed her daughters a few weeks ago and just raved about the hair flower that she made.  Then an unexpected delivery arrived just a short week later! Three beautiful flower headbands! Just the fact that you put forth the effort to do that made my day Steph! Thank YOU!!

A Beautiful ‘Mother To Be…’

July 27th, 2010

I love when a voice from the past contacts JEM for an important milestone.  Rachel was a bridesmaid from a wedding I photographed years ago ( 3 years ago can seem like a really long time) and then we found out that we have more friends in common than we thought and actually went to […]

I love when a voice from the past contacts JEM for an important milestone.  Rachel was a bridesmaid from a wedding I photographed years ago ( 3 years ago can seem like a really long time) and then we found out that we have more friends in common than we thought and actually went to birthday parties as a kid together.  Lizzie D if you read this it was your party!  Well Rachel you have turned into a beautiful woman and you radiate the pregnancy glow.  I loved how you were so comfortable in front of the camera as I was able to capture some of your pure, natural beauty. Thank you.

-Sarah, a Belly and a Field-

July 26th, 2010

Sarah and Mark are expecting their first baby girl in a couple of weeks.  We met at Secor Park (my fav) for an evening shoot of Sarah’s beautiful belly.  Of course I am completely and totally in my element when I’m in a field but it’s the best when my subjects don’t mind a bed […]

Sarah and Mark are expecting their first baby girl in a couple of weeks.  We met at Secor Park (my fav) for an evening shoot of Sarah’s beautiful belly.  Of course I am completely and totally in my element when I’m in a field but it’s the best when my subjects don’t mind a bed of grass either.  When Sarah walked towards me in a gorgeous and flowy dress so many words came to mind, enchanted, serene, radiant, glowing….  It was so funny because I had never met Sarah before our shoot but she said, “I knew you would love this dress!”  So great when my/our style is recognized and shared with our clients.

Sarah, I loved photographing you so much!  Thank you.  Looking forward to meeting your little one when she arrives.  Mark, excellent job fixing the dress and being patient with us.  Isn’t your wife lovely?
