Engagement session Photo Walk April 19, 2011

Thanks to Edward John Photography I was able to join him on an engagement session photo walk. I jumped at the chance to join a great photographer at one of my favorite places. I traded in a windy soccer game for a windy photo shoot. Not a bad deal and I was home in time to spend another hour in the cold wind at a second soccer game of the day. My client emails and edits are up to date as of a couple hours ago so I finally got to play with these shots. I’ve narrowed it down to my faves – never an easy task. I can’t decide which daffodil picture I like better. I think it’s the one with their eyes closed. And once again thanks to Ed, and my photo friend Shannon for spreading the word, as well as the cute couple – Jessica and Ben. Here is a link to Shannon’s shots on her Clicking Through Life blog.

A memorable part of the photo walk was when Ed was describing lots of issues to think of when posing and interacting with the couple, Ben commented something along the lines of, ‘Wow, all that is going through your head?’ And I thought, ‘and then some!’ since we hadn’t even discussed manual exposure, etc! My head spins with all I have to think about when setting up a shot. It has gotten easier and I do love the techy side too as well as interacting with the people I’m shooting! Anyway, I’m anxious to share…


Another cutie! April 3, 2011

He made me miss a last minute maternity session with his mom by coming early but I’m over it! Matthew is here and he is a cutie! He was such a little peanut but we all know how long that lasts! I’m glad I got to meet him when he was one week old and capture these precious shots. Now this is the hard part… deciding on just a few to put on my blog.


Oh it’s so hard to choose!


I can’t believe he is almost 2!

This sweet little boy was my first newborn session. I also got to see him at three months and again at a year. I set up a cake smash session for him that I’ll always remember. We also took a trip to the park to celebrate his big milestone. This week I went to see him again when he became a big brother. As a mom of two boys, that are also just shy of two years apart, I know some of what these boys have in store for them – years of being best friends! He will be an awesome big brother! I loved that he took my hand and walked around his house and let me hold him again.

What a cutie!

Peek a boo!

Such a sweetie!

I love capturing his sweet face.

All that cuteness!

This reminds me of a photo I took of him last year.
